    Nobody but me?

    For the last few days the "unanswered threads" button has been showing me threads to which I have already responded, but to which nobody else has responded.

    For example: https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/t...-pronunciation

    Re: Nobody but me?

    In the same vein, my profile reports that I have made certain posts (which I have), but when I go to the threads I cannot see them.

    I have alerted the webmaster. Sorry for the bother.

    Re: Nobody but me?

    Sorry to say that this is more of a holding post from me, because I can't for the life of me work out why you would be seeing that behaviour. It's working for me and I've not heard of anyone else having this issue.

    If you can point me to some specific examples of threads, perhaps with screenshots, that might help me understand better what's happening.

    In the meantime, sorry for the inconvenience!

    No, it's not just you. When I click on "unanswered threads" it will often show that somebody has responded -- me, Tarheel.

    Hm.

    Re: Nobody but me?

    OK, I have managed to replicate it now. I replied to a thread and the unanswered threads still shows the thread in question listed.

    Does the unanswered threads list correct itself after a while (perhaps after 5, 10, 20 minutes or an some other period of time for example)?

    What happens if you refresh the page (f5)? If I reopen a post after closes the tab I sometimes have to refresh the page to see my post as the browser has cached the older version.

    No bother. These things happen. I am glad to help by reporting them.

    So far, no. (Maybe it takes longer than 20 minutes.)

    Hm. I'm going to have to remember that. Maybe you could periodically remind me?
