New articles in News Comments reset last visit

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Every time AppleInsider (Kasper's Automated Slave) posts a new article/thread in the News Comments forum, this resets my last visit. This means that I can no longer rely on VBB to tell me which threads I have already read. I brought up this problem in another thread in May, but thought it deserved its own. In that old thread, I wrote:

I've started studying for the bar exam and no longer have time to visit AI on a regular basis. So it's very impractical if the forum doesn't correctly remember when I last visited.

Kasper: Yes, it does. I brought the issue up with Jonathan over a year ago. I took the screenshot below in May: a new article posted in the News forum reset my "last visit" to the time of the article's posting.



This happens every single time your automated slave posts a new article in the News forum! I am trying to visit AI less often and you guys are posting articles very regularly these days. That combination makes it very difficult to keep track of my last visit.

Is there any way we can fix this? Kasper? Amorph? Jonathan?

TIA,

Other users notice this problem as well, right? Anyone?

Or do I accidentally take a puff from Meader's crack pipe every time a new report shows up in News Comments?

Thanks for chiming in, audiopollution. I think the problem is widely known, but nobody seems to care. Remains to see whether the admins are able to do anything about it....

Any news on this, Amorph? You indicated in this thread that you were "on it."

Just happened again with the Skype article. The article was posted in News Comments at 08-18-2004 08:36 PM and that's what my "last visit" was reset to as well.
