Just wondered why 'new' sometimes appears next to topics and other times it doesn't

It's a mystery I'm afraid. The 'new' flags have never worked properly.

In fact, I might see if I can turn them off.

Ooooh, please don't switch them off. I like the "new" flags, even though they sometimes play up.

I find that sometimes they appear when I don't expect them to because even though I've read the last page of a thread, there's a preceding page I've missed. Strangely, they always seem to work okay on my laptop at home (which uses Windows XP and a newer version of Internet Explorer), but they do play up on my work PC (which uses Windows 2000 and some antiquated version of Internet Explorer). I don't get those XML error messages, or whatever they're called, on my home PC, either...

They periodically slightly irritate me, but never enough to get round to posting about it. But please don't turn them off completely, they're still useful. They seem quite well-behaved at the moment, except for some threads in the 'socials' forum, which claim to be constantly new even though every post has been read.

i find that clicking on each individual page, and on the actual header sorts out the problem.

Usually it does but sometimes it doesn't. I've got a couple of persistant ones that wont go away, all in the 'socials' forum (which may be a clue, James)
