Default Post twisting bug - 04-13-2010, 08:41 AM

Sometimes when you post on a thread, you notice that your post has been "twisted" so it's above the post of the person who last posted. It's to do with the forum coding; cuz it hasn't been updated.

The only way that I know of to fix this is as follows (suggested by Wolfie):

1. Check the time of the last post on the thread. Example; say the last person who posted on the thread was Elanorea and she made her post at 12:32pm. You should view all posts posted as being in your own standard time, whatever that is; mine just happens to be GMT.

2. Check the time on your computer clock. Example; my clock says 12:30pm.

3. Wait til your clock shows a time past the time of the previous person's post. Example; I wait til my computer clock says 12:33pm, before I make my post. It doesn't twist, cuz the forum recognises it as having been made after Elanorea's, not before.
