How is my "last visit" determined?
posted by The Winsome Parker Lewis to Bugs at 9:37 AM (29 comments total)
I stay logged into Metafilter all day and frequently reload the various colored sections to check for updates. At the top of each front page is a count telling me "X links and X comments have been posted since your last visit." But the number is always wrong. Likewise, the "(X new)" after the comments link for every post is also out of date. If this old MeTa
is (still?) accurate and applies to both counts, that explains why
the numbers are wrong... but can something be changed to make them, you know, useful?
Categorized as a bug because that seems to be what this is, even if I am also asking for a pony to fix the bug.
