Another interesting thing

Another interesting thing that I noticed in addition to everything else is that after I sign out I can come back later not signed in and click on the thread it still shows me as being online. Not sure how long that lasts as when I checked again an hour or so later that was not the case.

Another interesting one is

Another interesting one is that tonight when I logged in there are post that show no new post but there is.  That along with the rest of the whole page showing all new post even when there isn't any new post. 

The gremlins are busy tonight.

explanation

We spoke with our programmer, and it appears he increased the cache time on new posts & comments about a week ago. What that means, is that instead of the database updating every 5 minutes (like it was before) it is now updating itself every hour. The main reason for this change was to try and improve the performance of the forum.

Our hardware (BGH's web server) is maxed out and we are going do some major upgrades this summer, so to keep everything running as smoothly as possible until the upgrade, the server load was reduced by increasing the cache time.

If you're unhappy with the 60 minutes let us know. We can change it back to 5 minutes. When we move to the new servers, we will not have long cache times and our goal is for the entire site to operate much faster.

Sorry for the confusion, we were unaware that our programmer was tweaking the site.

Thanks for the update.  I am

Thanks for the update.  I am fine with it as long as I know what is happening.  My only problem that I would have with it is not being able to see the new post for a while.

I had this issue just once,

I had this issue just once, on Thursday of last week.

I posted my "live from the field" thread.  When I was on the main forum page, it showed under the Turkey forum that my thread was the most recent post.

However, when I actually entered the turkey forum, I could not see my thread anywhere.  I was slightly perplexed.

Working now though.

We went back to the 5 minute posting delay, like it was previously.
