Why do I sometimes get red flags on posts that I have not read. But most of the time dont, leaving me to try to remember how many replies each post has had last time I looked or read all the same bloody things again.
Axshully no, read/unread posts are for one user, but not one puter. If you go to a different puter and login there the ipc server seems to remeber what time that user was last hooked up, then it shows all new posts since that session.
But I find you have to click "change" (and maybe select last-two-days or wahtever) b4 the red flags show, they dont appear when you first log in.
Do you always login?
I access the forums from 2 different computers, one remembers my username and password, so always shows the red flags, the other is a work computer, so dosn't show red flags until I've logged in, until then it dosn't know who I am so dosn't know which ones I've read.
