About the Folly in 50 States and the World category

(Replace this first paragraph with a brief description of your new category. This guidance will appear in the category selection area, so try to keep it below 200 characters.)

Use the following paragraphs for a longer description, or to establish category guidelines or rules:

  • Why should people use this category? What is it for?

  • How exactly is this different than the other categories we already have?

  • What should topics in this category generally contain?

  • Do we need this category? Can we merge with another category, or subcategory?

I’ll ask here, since this category has confused me… This morning it said that I had 2 unread in this category. Clicking that notification showed me two threads, but in Washington, but when clicked, both took me to old, old postings back in May! None new, unread from this month. Maybe somewhere, someone made a reply or something, but none were obvious…

Maybe that’s what is happening on other categories, but it was particularly noticeable this morning…

Yes, the first time an old thread from the old system is visited it starts you at the top. It doesn’t matter how you revisit it, whether it is because there is a new message reviving it, or you opened it some other way such as a search. Very confusing until you understand that, after which it is only somewhat confusing when you (as I do) don’t realize at first that it was an old message acting that way.

On the plus side, I have found it to be very consistent. :sunglasses:
