Below is an excerpt I got in my e-mail today. The weird thing is, when I went to the forum, the last person who posted was me, and it was yesterday. This has happened a few times. What's the reason (Getting notified of my own post the next day and the site recognizes it as new)?

It says, "Since my last visit," but I was on the site this AM.

I think what you are noticing, Dave, is that the post subscription notification process is not perfect when it comes to your own posts in a thread. It doesn't seem to adequately process the fact that because you are posting it, you have already seen the post.
As far as the site notifying you again despite your having already been on the forums earlier in the day, I wonder if this is somehow related to the fact that you may not have gone into that forum earlier in the day. Because you didn't go into that forum, you didn't see your post that you already made, and the forum software wanted to notify you that it was a new post you hadn't read in that section.

I do not know precisely what to do about these issues, but I will mention the fact that there is a new version of phpbb which I will be upgrading us to very soon (it was not out until last week).
Perhaps (no guarantees!) it will take care of some of these issues regarding post notification which you are experiencing.

Just thought I'd mention so it's on the radar. Thanks!

I don't know about this... I viewed bunch of posts a little earlier tonight. Then just came back to the site and clicked to view new posts. Looks like a lot / all if the ones I viewed earlier popped up.
