I don't want to go so far as to say this is a real bug yet January 15, 2001 9:24 PM   Subscribe

I don't want to go so far as to say this is a real bug yet, but ... is anyone else noticing discrepancies between the "number of new responses" listed at the top of the front page, and the number of new comments that are actually showing up on each link? I've been having intermittent discrepencies for a while, and tonight's one of them. MeFi says 113 responses, but I can only count 102. And I have the front page set to give me the last two weeks worth of links.

So either there's a really-old-yet-really-popular thread back in the archives somewhere, or the count's getting wonky. Any ideas?

it might have something to do with the way metafilter is cached locally. sometimes i too get the weird counts. but, usually it's a combination of the last page i saw and the new ones since.

I haven't noticed that problem before, but now that you've mentioned it, I was aware of it happening at least once tonight to me. I don't know what it could be off the top of my head, but I'll check the query that figures out new links for bugs.
