    guys i am a bit confused cos i dont have this issue with other forum sites.

    when i log in and look around it says there are 676(just a random number) new posts.
    then i log off and come back in 10min and get a similar reading of 600 odd NEW POSTS. when its clear there has only been 3 or 4.
    its like the system is not updating what is new to a member...

    i dont have this issue on other forums.

    maybe a bug??

    I'm not 100% sure how it works, but I think it takes into account all of the posts you have not previously read, plus any news posts in the last hour. I think if you log out and then back in after an hour it should reset itself, I think.

    When you log back in, even after 10 minutes, and click on the new posts link it should differentiate between the 'new' unread posts with a bold comment between the new ones and the older unread posts.

    No wait, I think this forum is set to show unread posts from the last 2 weeks, not sure if that has anything to do with it. Geez, now I'm confused. :p

    Fully understandable .. I was just under the impression that maybe it could have been in the wrong place .... as everything was for free ... He was just looking to get the fishies to safety ASAP ... so would the pics rule still apply? I would think it was more a cry for help than trying to make money out of the livestock ..... Would be nice maybe to know if everything sorted or the livestock still need homes so more reefers can come to the party....
