    I think I'd rather be left in the dark than lied to.

    Yeah some times the count gets messed up - happens all the time on my board. To fix that do Quick Links > Mark Forums As Read. Or click this link: BTWIMHO Chat Forums - Powered by vBulletin

    That doesn't fix anything, Dan, and in fact just makes thing worse by messing up the New Posts page. What I meant by I'd rather be kept in the dark than lied to is I'd rather see the Unread Posts feature removed if possible. If I remember correctly that's what JS had done @ v7 and it worked out nicely as there was then no incorrect info displayed and members could just use the New Posts link to keep abreast. I just hope I'm remembering correctly, my memory is not like it was 5 minutes ago, it's failing fast. lol

    I've been monitoring the counts all day and they look pretty accurate to me.
    What's up?

    Well, Dan said sometimes so I guess you just have to wait for it to act up, it's like it gets stuck when it should be refreshing I guess, I don't know.

    He's right though because mine is ok now.

    Basically what it does I guess is not register a deduction as the posts are viewed.

    It's nothing I can't live with, I just felt like complaining, Zap. I scraped the bottom of the wine jug last night and managed to get out two cups of lees.. tasted terrible but did the trick. lol

    No problem, Dude.
    And, for what it's worth, Dan figured out what is happening. It counts ALL new posts (including ones that members can't view) so, technically, you're not being lied to, just taunted.

    Wow, cool! Dan is the first guy I've seen to figure that one out.

    Nice one, Dan! Thank you.

    I'm getting to like the Top Ten Stats link, and it doesn't lie. Nothing I hate worse than willful disinformation.
