Need login for correct latest post info

For a while now I've noticed that the "latest post" and "Recent Discussions" info is not correct unless I log in first. Most of the time I just want to catch up on latest stuff going on and don't otherwise need to log in.

I'm not sure if one of the other Mods might know but I moved you're question here so hopefully it will get the attention of an Admin.

I just hit "New Posts" when I come on. Like oneacer, I just stay logged on most of the time.

"Latest post" and "Recent Discussions" will be different when you are logged in vs. not logged in. Because when you are logged in, the forum knows who you specifically are (your username) and it knows what *you* have specifically seen and what you haven't seen..which is customized for you specifically, and is different from all other forum members. And when you come back, it remembers where you left off last time, and shows new topics based on that.

But, when you aren't logged in, the system doesn't know "you" are there..you become just a random "guest" who isn't logged in.. So it shows the info for random guests who aren't logged in! So, it will naturally be different.

So, its actually supposed to work that way. In the IT world, we call this "system working as designed, not as expected"

(I also just stay logged in all the time, no reason to manually log out, ever.)

Isn't that the truth. There are times you were sure it'd go right and all of a sudden it's going left

Such is the world of the internet. If you want first hand news/accounts of what's going on, you must log into your account to get the latest/greatest news you have subscribed to. Your selection during sign-in caters to your personal account. Any other person that reaches this site will get random or newly created posts. There are too, many accounts or members with specific interests to make them all available at the same time.
I stay logged in all the time now so I receive what I'm interested most of the time.
