    anyone else have this same problem
    You couldn't have "lost" posts.

    Do you read through each forum individually, or just browse "Today's Active Threads?" If you do the latter, it only holds the posts for the last 24 hours, so once you've been off for more than 24 hours, the kinda "fall off" the back. The only way to read them them is to go to each individual forum.

    That's the way I do it anyways, but I'm rarely gone for more than 24 hours.

    (to the delight of many, I'm sure)

    it happens to me also....if I click on "view unread posts", and then for whatever reason close the window, or my puter shuts down, or whatever, when I click on "view unread posts" again, it only brings up those threads that have been posted on while the window was closed.

    That's when I just click on "today's active threads" and pilfer through from there.

    I think it says "since your last log in" or something like that....so it only shows the "new posts" since you logged off (I think)
    Alot of time, closing the window marks everything as read.

    I think it changes each time you log in.

    I never log out, just click the x in upper right corner. thought i was loosing my mind.
    I never log out either. But if I'm gone for awhile, it ends the session and marks everything as read. You don't have to physically log out.

    I hate when that happens--usually when the 'puter freezes up. I also hate when I get a pm, answer it before viewing threads, and it dumps or loses all the messages I had before I answered the pm.
