Default What's wrong Kuki

Every #$@@$#$ time I log on to this board the "new" message appears next to every thread header. Is it my browser or what??? There are not any new messages in the thread but the message appears anyway. There's a disconnect with the new server/software for this board. What's up????

Regards,
Thomas

Not sure what is wrong Thomas. It is working correctly on my browser, including the read messages. I have mine set to "view threads" and "Flat View". Not sure if that is the reason or not but so far it is working better than it did on the old server.

Thomas.. I have the same problem. Sometime the "red" new is accurate, other times it's not. I think it's a glitch in the system, that we had even before the update.

It seems to work if you use "Threaded View" rather than "Flat View". I have no idea how Robo has his set for both, because as far as I know you can set your computer to present the messages in one form or the other, not both.
I'm thinking Jim had too many BBCs the last few weeks <G>

Thomas,

I've experienced the very same problem and it drove me crazy, until I discovered what the (my) problem was. I have my computer set to automatically delete the cookies off of my hard drive every week. I don't like having all that sort of thing on my computer.......

But by doing that, you erase all the information that this website uses to let you know which messages are new for you since the last time you visited here. After having deleted all the cookies, you're beginning from scratch the next time you visit the website and all the messages are new for you.

Hope this helps!

Dean

Thanks.........I'll try that. I too have mine set to "view threads" and "flat view" but I still have the same problem Robo. It appears that others are experiencing the same as well. Any techno-geeks out there who can explain the problem for us? My settings are the same as they were before the new server and did not have the problem then.

Thanks,
Thomas

I know that I've brought this up before, but I'm going to try again. It would really be more user-friendly if the threads were sorted by the time of the last update rather than by the time of the original post. Even if the "New" indicator worked right, which it doesn't, it still would not be a solution for those of us who use more than one computer. If you sort by last update, all I have to do is locate the first newly updated thread, probably remembering when I last visited, then I know that everything above it is new. The Cruise Critic boards and 2 of the 3 Cruise Addicts boards work that way and they are much easier to use than CruiseMates. Just my opinion.

I read the Cruise Critic boards once in awhile, and post occassionally, when we see someone who's on the same sailing as us.

I find that at least 50 % of the time you open a thread there because it's "at the top", you scroll down to the bottom, and all it says is BUMP!
Then there's the arguementive threads.. someone wants to draw attention to their "cause" again, they post.

If used properly I'd probably like the format. The "abuse" of it diminishes the attraction to me.

On the CM boards if you set to read in "Threaded View" you'll see the last post on a thread.. the time and date of the last post.. and the posters name. All good features I think.

Then, as I've pointed out before, if you want to follow a particular thread click on the E-mail replies feature, and the posts get sent right to your mailbox.

Advantages and disadvantages to all systems. The good thing.. at least we're all sharing information <G>

And how come when I'm in "flat view" and get down to the bottom of the thread I don't have the option to "go to top" or "go to topic" but have to scroll all the way up to get those selections? When I'm in threaded view those options are at the bottom of the screen as before.

Regards,
Thomas

Paul has said before he agrees about the missing "go to top" choice missing is a glitch they're working on.

BTW..Cruise Critic doesn't have a "go to top" feature available.
Like I said.. different strengths and weaknesses <G>
