Default well now... this is puzzling...

I'm certain this has got to be at least part of the reason i get confuzzled trying to keep up with new posts:

I look down the list and see that Sassie has posted on March 22nd, 2005 in the Star Trek thread. However, when i click that specific post, or open the entire thread from the very begining, it shows something entirely different. And i refreshed the page too, trying to make sure it was indeed current.

Here is what it says out in the listings of threads:
"Poll
Poll: Favorite Star Trek Series
Kater

post 29 305"

Here's what the last post seems to be once i'm in the thread:

Re: Favorite Star Trek Series
I've just seen a double episode of 'Enterprise' and really enjoyed them, now I realise why people are so upset at the cancellation. This would have been a great platform to take the whole 'Star Trek' genre from the beginning up to date, showing how the Federation developed. I'm now angry that it's been cancelled. I think this is very short sighted of the company and I would lay odds that it will be back, remember the original series was cancelled and returned because of the fans voicing their displeasure! And look at the result and all the money they eventually made! It will return once they realise the amount of money to be made from it!
Until then I'm fed up as I will watch but know that it will come to an end."

ermm... what's making it show a difference? I know i have cookies enabled.

what probably happened was that Sassie just voted in the poll, and didn't actually post.


That drove me nuts a time or two, as well,Saphirdrache!

I think that second number just means it's the 29th reply to a 30-post thread. On the list of topics, 0 means a thread hasn't been replied to yet. But when you view that thread, it's counted as #1. Does that help?

It confused me at first too, a long time ago...

hehe, yes, that does help. thank you Tresa.

i guess the thing that confused me more than anything was the dates being quite different. looking in the lisings of threads that day, i had thought Sassie had added something new to that thread on march 22nd, lol. no worries

thank you everyone.
