Issues seeing recent posts

Lately i find that unless i log in i cannot see the most recent posts in a thread. In some cases this means that in the list view of threads in a patricular forum, i will see a name and time of the most recent post, but that post is not shown if i go to that thread, unless I login. And somtimes there are a couple oofposts that i can`t see until I log in. Happening on two different devices, with two different operating systems, and two different browsers.Jan 4, 2019 at 4:07 am #3571400Ken ThompsonBPL Member

This is supposedly a benefit for members, seriously. I’ve noticed some times a lag of more than three hours. Must suck for Gear Swap.Jan 4, 2019 at 5:49 am #3571414Eric BBPL Member
Yep, I’ve noticed this too.
And now we have a name for this behavior: “oofposts”. I like it.Jan 4, 2019 at 6:39 am #3571415Rex SandersBPL Member
This bug/feature has been around since 2017:
Good news – it used to be much, much worse.
Bad news – ain’t gonna get fixed, now it’s a feature, not a bug.
Login for the latest, or live a few hours in the past. Your choice.

It’s sort of a feature (insert smiley crying face here) but the decision is more practical.
Pages are aggressively cached for non-logged in users. It speeds up their load times quite a lot. It’s good for business and increases ad revenues.
We’re moving away from network ad revenues, which is awesome for both you and me. Read the Year in Review for more info.
I know, I know. It’s a barge, a bit slow to move. But move we will. Thanks for sticking with us.
