thought it would be better posting this up instead of pm a bunch of mods. in the past hr its done this twice. you view the threads you've subscibed to and then you go comment on another post. then you come back and in you user cp all the threads are bolded even though you were the last post and no one else has commented. its not just one or two its all, just thought i let you guys know. anyone else having this problem?

sometimes that indicates theree are un-read posts. even though you were the last post, sometimes others post while you have the window up and are typing...

i just chock it up to that and roll on

Can't say I've ever used the subscribed feature lol, so no it's never happened to me. I have had it happen a lot with the "New Posts" option though. I'm the last person to comment in the thread, but it's bolded and shows as new. Not sure if it's a forum glitch or an issue with refreshing the browser.

i have it happen frequently, but just chalked it up to the same thing as Curtis had said.

and Alex, what is the "subscribed feature"? i've noticed a few members saying that, "i've subscribed now". when ever i've post a response to a thread, i've always been updated whenever a new reply has been posted.

Some forums are different I've found. This one used to be much worse. After visiting or viewing topics it took a long *** time for it to be acknowledged. It's better now though.
