Hmm... very strange things are happening. I read a lot of posts on this forum, and usually I can remember the ones that I have read. However, since a week or so I noticed that sometimes posts that I have read, and no new posts have been added, become mark as unread.

It just happened to me in the Support section, the first time I saw it in the Build & Guide Discussion section and I believe I had it once in the Off Topic section as well.

What could be causing it? :o

I was just about to make a thread like this, but the *opposite*.

Sub forums are showing up as "unread" even though I've visited them a couple of times to check out this "unread" content that doesn't exist. This occurs for the Editor, Scout and Vet forums at the moment only, it seems.

Is this something that has been happening for some time or just something you've noticed more recently?

There are a couple issues that do cause this sometimes. If I go through and clear up spam, sometimes threads that had the spam will be marked unread but when you get there the message is gone. This is because I haven't built a proper system yet for clearing up this content, so the read/unread data does not get updated accordingly.

Second issue is if someone deletes their own post. Sometimes this can cause a thread to get marked unread.

Those issues have been around for ages though, so if you are experiencing it significantly more within the last short while then there may be something else wrong.

I should mention that I recently did a pretty big clean up from a couple particularly nasty spammers so it may have been more noticeable.

It has been happening since 2 weeks or so.

I have indeed noticed the removal of some spam posts, I can imagine that that happens. Also I noticed that some people's accounts were removed...

Perhaps that has something to do with it. I can't be sure, I will let you know next time I see it happening.

Happening since Christmas at least. I'll see the "forum unvisited" flame even if the last person to post in that forum is myself.
