You know the number that tells you how many new posts have been added? Sometimes mine works, sometimes it doesn't. Most of the time, it just tells me the number of posts in the whole thread, even if I've responded. Is there way to reset it, or get it to count correctly? And am I in the right place to ask this question?
Since yesterday, I haven't been seeing the comment count in the RSS feeds anymore. I've tried in the main metafilter feed and in the popular posts feed. Is it a bug, an oversight, a suppressed pony? Is it just me? Thanks for listening.
There may be a bug on the recent comments page. [more inside]
Thanks for my pony? [more inside]
Hello. This is not really hurting my life or anything, but it seems that the list of posts on the "My Favorites" tab on the front page includes deleted comments in its comment count for each post. Screenshot here.
Hi, I've been following metafilter since 2000-2001 but just recently registered an account. One feature I notice is the "new comments" count. This count rarely seems to coincide with what I actually have and have not read. What criteria does the system use to determine the appropriate "new" comment amount?
Intentional Double Post! Since User No. 1 never responded when I posted this last July... These days, with our lengthy yet interesting (to me) threads I am more often encountering the timeout/comment count refresh issue and would like to again call for this value to be user configured or set to a longer value, preferably 45 minutes or so.
Trivial pony: when inside MeTa threads, could we have a count of total comments, like we do in the Blue? I know the comment counts are there on the MetaTalk home, but it might be nice, even if only for consistency of UI, to be able to tell how many comments without having to back out and re-enter.
Front page lists more comments than are actually in the thread. As of this writing there are 13 comments, according to the front page, but the inside page only shows eight.
