Security Issue?
Recently, rpol has been resetting my "threads read," thus showing all threads as being unread everytime I log in. Normally, that only happens when I switch devices (i.e. I check rpol on my phone, then check on my laptop, the laptop shows all threads unread). However, I haven't been checking with any other devices, so it shouldn't be doing that me, but it has been.

Not sure if it from other stuff being handled on the back end, or if someone cracked my password and has been poking around.

I changed my password, but I figured on mentioning it on the off chance the worse possibility was the cause.

This can sometimes result from cookie issues.  Try clearing your RPoL cookies.

Having changed my password, I haven't had issues since. No, I haven't touched cookies.

I'm not sure how someone cracking your password and poking around would result in all of your threads being marked as unread.  Unless there's a function somewhere that I've totally missed, you can't 'unread' a thread, so someone poking around should only theoretically result in you missing new posts/messages because THEY read them and cleared the new message indicator...

 I only have that Issue  in I bring up a 'second" window of RPOL..I do that soeties  when  doing stats  for the  games, rosters  ect ect.

 if I close the  wrong window... the  'new' window' didn't know I was already here..so all my   newest posts, including my own, show up  as 'new"

As I said before, it happens when switching devices. Someone cracking ny password would be on a second device.

Is there a last logged in history anywhere? You could interrogate that to see if there was a date / time in your login history when you knew you weren't logged in.

GMs  can see what time the  players  log in..other can only see  dates..all the  posts  have a  Time on the thread...

 I noticed that  my time stamps  will change tie zones  when I pull up another   window, then I have to re-click  to reset the time

Me?..so far today (Friday to sat Morning)  it hasn't  happened...next time it happens   i'll drop a  time stamp in here.

 in my most active game, I notcie it more, becayse I Live in PA..I have  players  in and around  England..all the way over to the  west coast of America? so i'll check the   time of a post to see when the player posted  , before I move the game along..

 I have links  for  my games to 'bump them'  when the time comes for the add..i'll click on one of those, and  after one or two clicks   'my time" is back on my windows  , and  I will close the  'wrong' time one.

In reply to donsr (msg # 10):

Mostly I was asking DLH.  I have no idea what's going on with yours, though I might have an idea about DLH's.  :)

Wednesday was the last day for site wide issue. I reset my password and no further issue till today, though today it wasn't everywhere, it was just three places, two forums and one game.

Oops, missed this.

Do you access the site from multiple devices?  If so, do you log out of one device before transferring to another?

I do use multiple devices without logout and I've noticed sometimes pms and game threads show as unread on the second device, even one's I posted myself. It could still be just a cookie issue.

Annoying things these cookies (but tasty with a coffee / tea).
