  • Scrambled Photos and last Poster Name... AGAIN

    Hi Clark, I know you know this is happening from my last Post about it, however I have a example from Today that might help figure it out, especially IF it is about the East Coast vs West Coast Timing of the Posts.

    On this String:

    https://forum.studebakerdriversclub....-a-50-champion

    What is current at almost 1:00 PM is that Joe Hall's Pic displays with My Name as the Last Poster.
    Actually, it IS Joe.

    The string was started this morning by wdills at 6:42 AM in NC.

    Post #2 was StudeRich at 9:53 AM in WA.

    Post #3 was studegary at 10:29 AM in NY.

    Post #4 was (S) at 10:53 AM in WA.

    Post #5was JoeHall at 11:08 AM in KY.

    Of course these are the Times displayed on my West Coast Computer at 1:31 PM, so I have NO idea what these Poster's Local time was or how the Website deals with that.

    I have also noticed that lately, what is listed as the last post, probably isn't the last post.

      The bulletin board system queues certain updates for timed execution; i.e., these processes run on a scheduled interval. (These are called "cron jobs", if you're interested).

      When there is a heavy server load, there are more processes to execute, and the update is delayed. It's just one of those things.

      The good news is, no matter whose name is displayed, "What's New" always feeds you the threads that have been updated since your last view.

        Thanks for the explanation. Most everything online was busy yesterday.

          Clark-
          I accept your explanation, except that I sometimes log in pretty early in the morning Eastern time -- which is surely one of the quietest times on the Web. Yet I still encounter this problem every day -- many threads are not updated to show which ones include new postings. Not a big problem, but a minor annoyance. I guess I'm just questioning whether this only happens when there's a high load on the server -- it happens every day for me.

            Also, this did not happen right after the conversion to this system. It is a recent thing/annoyance.

              I suspect this also explains why we may see a thread that is indicated as having no responses, and find there are actually a dozen.
