    Of course we can. You have to refresh the page to see the updates. "Back" doesn't do it.

    Well I'm glad someone else can see this!

    What if I simply clicked on the forum name i.e. "Member Introductions" as it appears at the top of this thread?
    I've been doing that and it takes me back to the forum page without my thread being displayed in the forum!
    I have never come across a forum that doesn't allow this...

    Ok, I tried my method....it doesn't work!

    I tried SW's method....it works!

    Many thanks.

    It looks like I'll have to get friendly with my refresh button from now on....well at least on this forum anyway...

    Like SWGirl said, this isn't a chat function...
    It's a thread...like 4chan...you refresh or go to another thread. NOTHING around here is instant.

    Welcome, I suppose.

    Welcome, finally.:eyes I removed your "Testing" 1, 2, and 3 posts from the other introductions thread, so don't freak out if they are gone. But welcome to SF.

    Are you new to forums in general?

    Nah, I have been on forums for a few years now....but I have never experienced what i did today.
    On all the other forums I've been on there is no need to keep hitting refresh. You can just click on the sub-forum name at the top of each page and navigate to "refreshed" pages that way.
    I dunno what happened. I'm not a techie. I'm better at other things.

    Thanks for the welcome though. :)

    Welcome to SF!

    Here's something else that I just noticed from where I'm sitting----BobbyG has posted six times in this thread, and his post count is still at zero...........hmmm? Do any of you mods have a clue as to what's up with that?

    I only mention that as it might be pointing to a glitch of some kind. Then again, I'm no mod, so......I dunno.

    We don't get credit for posts in the Member Introductions.
