    New reply puzzle

    I posted a puzzle to the puzzle section of the lounge recently to which, to date, I have received 4 replies. However, when I visit this area I see in the replies cell the number 4 with a red 1 as superscript. This is supposed to indicate 1 new reply. After clicking on the post and reading it, upon return to the puzzle forum the red superscript disappears as expected. The strange thing is, the next time I login and view the puzzle forum, I get the same 4 replies with the red superscript 1 as if I'd never viewed it before.
    Any suggestions?
    Sorry for the long-winded description.

    I've seen similar behaviour occasionally, so you're not alone. I hadn't picked a pattern and found it was "livable", if a nuisance. So I just put it down to an "irregular minor glitch". Someone else is bound to offer a slightly more technical explanation. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Rob,
    Do you log out - i.e. click the Logout link top right - when you leave the Lounge?

    Leif,
    Yes, I always log out. It may be coincidental, but this has only happened since I installed Evidence Eliminator. Still, as Tim says, it's liveable with.

    Unless it's a serious issue, try not logging out for a while.
    (When you come back to the Lounge, you should get straight in without needing to Login - maybe not always advisable <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> )

    If Evidence Eliminator is deleting Cookies, it may be the problem.

    Yes <img src=/S/exclamation.gif border=0 alt=exclamation width=15 height=15> - but if the evidence is eliminated - how will we ever know? <img src=/S/duck.gif border=0 alt=duck width=23 height=23>

    I didn't do it, nobody saw me do it, there's no way you can prove anything!

    After a little more "thought", I remember the same thing was happening when I logged in from different computers at school therefore EE is not the problem.
    Glad to report that all appears normal now.

    Re: New reply puzzle

    It's happening again. I've logged in and perused all the posts I want to and logged back out. I went to yahoo to check my mail and logged back in. The posts that I'd previously read appeared as unread, ie, with the red superscript.
    I did not eliminate anything in the interim.
    It doesn't bother me but I thought it worthwhile reporting.
