Forum replies sometimes show up before the quoted post

Hi!

The last few weeks I have noticed that replies sometimes appear before the quoted post in the list. Either we’re seeing an increase in MTW events (micro time warp) or the site fails to handle posts in the correct order. Here is an example:

Re: Fatal Incident Where Plane Returned to Service

That makes no sense, take a train collision at a grade crossing with a car. If someone unfortunately passes from that they aren't going to remove the locomotive from service because of an accident.


Post 13 contains a quote of post 14. None of the posts seem to have been edited (if that makes a difference). Surely, posts are stamped by the server and not by the client computer clock? Might it be that different servers set the timestamps differently? NTP issue?

Seems to happen to a lot of my comments also I've noticed. Very annoying.

Apparently it's a known problem:

viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1387885

I'd guess that the servers have unsynchronized clocks, but of course there may be other factors causing this.

It's been happening for ages.

It would be nice to hear what's happening about it rather than just the vague "It's a known issue."

Just fix it already. :banghead:

This is still happening.

It makes the site look very amateurish. Is the problem actually being looked at?

An update would b appreciated. Thanks.

We've told the developers, and they've known for months. I sent out the first email about it in September. We haven't been given any updates, so unfortunately I don't really have much to give you.
