Me too ...
Also when a new post hits a old thread it doesn't bump it up to see the new activity.
So an older post with new activity just sits at the bottom and not highlighted.
I think it would help if all unopened new threads and posts were highlighted upon any update and bumped up to the top of a thread.
Am I missing something?
Doug, I don't think that's quite right. For example Mark's (mk_e) thread is frequently updated, and "normally" pops right up in the New Posts listing.
I say "normally" because what you may be seeing, and which has been a known vBulletin software bug, is when, for example:
1. Someone posts to Mark's thread
2. In the same section/subforum, someone posts to Brett's thread after
the post to Mark's thread
Brett's updated thread will show up in the New Posts, but Mark's will not. Both threads will still be highlighted
if you visit that section, but only the latest updated thread for that section will appear when you hit the "New Posts" button.
This bug was there as late as version 3.8.4 of the vBulletin software. Andrew is running 3.8.6 on this forum and I haven't checked to see if it's still there.
Are you seeing something different?
