There are things like the following I’ve been noticing for months, but never filed a report for, because I could never reproduce them consistently. But, finally, accidentally, I’ve caught one on camera! (So please forgive the pausing and confusion reflected in my cursor movements.)
The things to look out for are:
- Unread being empty
- #feature showing as ‘Normal’ (despite being tracked, as shown in my preferences) and only showing as ‘Tracked’ on a refresh
- A topic mysteriously appearing in unread (from days ago, from the howto category)
The 2nd point is somewhat similar to a common bug I see (but have never been able to reproduce on video) where I’ll click on a topic from new in a category I’m tracking, but its own status won’t show as tracked unless I refresh the page. (I wonder if that’s related to this.)
Just before recording this I was trying to reproduce that bug by tracking #bug, and then clicking on one of it’s topics from the unread tab. I couldn’t, but upon un-tracking #bug, my unread tab was filled with about 20 closed topics in #bug from around 2015, which seems to be the same bug as point 3.
I don’t understand why this could be happening.
