Re: 1/ Consistency/ Behavior of index-numbers in grey & blue " bubbles" on Forum level -- 2/ Time stamp difference(s) between Forum level ( indicated last reply/entry) and actual thread level for this given entry
After some test use, including switching back & forth between Forum level and Thread level, noticed several inconsistencies ( or unclear behaviour) for:
A/ displayed/ passed time ( retrograde) and actual time, when this entry was made ;
B/ likewise the entry count in the grey bubbles (also blue bubble behavior ?) and its behaviour are unclear to me:
ad A/ as seen in pic-example 1+2 the ( delta) time for my entry is given with 0s, while in reality it was several hours : this is only true for the Forum level vs thread ;
at thread or post level it looks ok.
- Q1: is the reference time still the server time @ PST ?
ad B/ examples 3 +4 show a number of posts - in the grey " bubble" with" n entries, while when opening the thread the number is different, when manually counting the post-entries. When returning to prev level, it again shows different count .
- Along that line, the number displayed at Forum level, corresponds neither
to total replies nor to read or unread ones.
Q 2: what is the principle for changing the counter numbers ( in the grey bubble) ?
- and within the blue bubble ?
Q 3: is the number of h,m,d the delta time of last entry ? ( I suppose) or/and
4/ how would I know on the Forum level, the time of First post by the author ?
- it's clear to me, that when OPENING the first post in the thread ( and for each entry),
the actual time stamp is given with mm/ss/yyyy plus time stamp, upper left
( time of server, it looks); that is ok.
C/ Pls find enclosed some screenshots to illustrate the major points:
please note the time stamps and time differentials,
and the 2 " bubble"-count(s), within grey & blue
ad A/ Time discrepancies:
Shown here: Forum level:
Note: (Passed) time is given with 0 sec (!?)
Note: post-level - individual has server time-stamp,
thread level - now shows 2h (?!)
ad B/ post count in grey/blue bubbles:
- in Forum view : no 21 given, although by manual count in thread is 24 entries
Further more, neither the read nor unread post-entries correspond to # 21
[ Also: Time-differential has increased to 11h - ? ]
Note: entry-counter shows 21, actual count, manual at thread level 24;
also note: now increased time differential (?)
Hope, that helps for description: normally it's not of paramount
importance to know the correct time of last entry (?),
but a correct first posting time helps in judging the actuality
of the thread.; likewise the last entry can be helpful.
(I'm still struggling a bit with systematic indication of only time-differentials, but learned, that's because of Instagram integration..). The individual post on left panel
is depicting time-stamp ( of server)
Thank you, in advance,
