"New" flag disappearing from topic titles
« on: Friday 12 August 05 10:00 BST (UK) »
I have noticed recently that if there are two new topics together that when I open the top one and then hit the back button to return to the list, the topic below no longer has a "new" flag, even though I haven't read it.

It's annoying in that you quickly lose track of which topics you have read. Is anyone else having this problem?

Hi Jon,

I'm very glad you have raised this!

Yes, I too have certainly noticed it - and it is most remiss of me not to have flagged it on the forum or directly to RC (sorry RC).

I am very pleased that you have done so - and no doubt it will quickly be remedied.

Thanks, Jap.

I wasn't really sure where to raise this topic---hopefully RC can sort it for us.

PS Do you have an identity crisis:

"A reply has been posted to a topic you are watching by Falkyrn."

Hi Jon,

No, I'm absolutely certain of my identity!  And I have only one on RC (user name JudyP, posting name JAP)!  And any I have elsewhere are totally transparent e.g. Judy Philip or judyphilip2003 or JudyP or JAP or japhilip@ - rest of email address not stated per RC policy.

But when I responded on this thread there was certainly an earlier response from Falkyrn.  There is no question whatsoever about that!

And, yes, Falkyrn does exist on RC.  A search for him finds a RootsChat Aristocrat who last posted today at 11:46:33 

Where is Dr Who when you need him??

Hiya both,

I'm delighted to say that the problem (the "new" flag dissapearing on the topics below the topic that you have read) has now been fixed.

Sorry it took so long!

Dear Trystan,

I hope there's plenty of self-flagellation going on there ::)

No, of course not!  If all our genealogical problems were as totally and utterly trivial as that tiny one, we'd be in clover.

Anyway, thank you very very much for action and - particularly - for your response.

Very best regards and congrats on the upgrade,

JAP

Thanks Judy!

I'm off for a lie down for a little nap...  ::) (joking!)
