Hi.

Not quite sure how to describe this, but this has been happening for the last week or so.

When I post in a game (or PM) and then leave it, the main menu shows that game as having a new message. When i go back in to check it, it seems to be my post that it is responding too - which it never used to.

I have asked in one game, and had not much response, but the only person who did said it wasn't happening to them (A GM). I have tried searching to see if there is a setting somewhere I have inadvertantly changed. Can anyone suggest whats going on?

I mainly view RPOL through Chrome.

thanks

I sometimes have to open up a new Like, if i am checking  back posts  for  a currant post.  the "new" line  will show  my  recent posts   as  'new'

It seems like Chrome recently updated, and screwed things up.  See also this thread: link to a message in another game

In reply to bigbadron (msg # 4):

My friend with firefox says it's doing it for him too.

That's odd.  I use Firefox, and my new message indicators are working fine.

Whenever you submit a post, you get a brief success message. It has links to go back to that thread you just posted in, or go back to the general game topic, or go to the main page.

I've noticed that if you click on the first link -- the one that jumps you right back to where you just posted -- this prevents the 'new message' indicator from being flagged.

Happens to me too. I just press "Return to thread" after the post is made so that it becomes marked as read.

It must be a Chrome issue. I've got it, too. Going back to a thread I just posted to clears it.Odd.
