Last message vs Seen - inconsistent minutes value in user profile


  • last message says 29 minutes
  • seen says 30 minutes

I think it is impossible for “seen” to be earlier than “last message”. If last message was written 29 minutes ago, then the user was for sure seen 29 minutes ago.

Unless I’m missing some piece of the logic here.

Things like this hardly qualify as a “bug”, but are still an issue in some sense. What if we make a sub-category like “minor bugs” or “tweaks” or something like that in the “bug” category. Just thinking aloud.


Possible reason: posting by email


Intuitively, I’d say that interacting with the forum, even through emails, is identical to visiting the form.
