Inbox message problem

    On the main forums page it always says that that I have 0 messages: "TRADERguy, you have 0 new message(s) in your Inbox" even when I have new unread messages.

    Hmm. I've noticed a lag sometimes. I'll have read a new message, and the main page (I think) will show that I still have a new message, but the forums page shows it as read, ie: 0 new messages.

    I belive the lag is due to the fact that the forums main page is part of the message board software, which includes the private message mailbox and other features. So when you read a new PM, it's updated on that page immediately, while the main page is pulling that information from the message board software, which creates a lag.

    Regardless, within 5 minutes, the disparity seems to vanish.

    Most of the time this is because the home page is stored in your browsers cache instead of showing the page in real time. I will check out your account though, and see if there are any issues.
