    It doesn't worry me THAT much, but---

    I just thought I would report that I have logged on a few times today (and yesterday) and have found threads listed in "New Posts" to me that I had already seen and that had NO NEW additions that I could make out.
    Just wondering if I might have mis-looked.
    Am. (Same old as before.)
    CC, Image editing OK.

    I get that sometimes. I've always assumed it was that someone had clicked a "Thanks" button or something, which made it become new again without anything new actually being in there. But I also don't really mind.

    Votes on polls cause a thread to be new!

    Also mods can 'bump' a thread which makes it new again

    I was going to add this too. If someone votes on a poll in a thread, it bumps the thread. This helps ensure competition voting threads stay current and hopefully get more voting.

    It's not a bug -- it's a feature of the base vBulletin system!
