No, no, read it again, these are posts that happen SINCE I've visited not ones I left unread since last visit.  I know all about when the icons shows and when it doesn't, I noticed those rules long ago.  These are instances were it should show but does not.

Hmm. It's not the new posts Icon I've had trouble with, it's just the notifications being weird. It might have something to do with the reading the forum while updates come in and posting in a thread of the same section that as the new post.

Renessa's issue is one I don't think I saw, mainly because I'm not looking at the same things.

Well.  I can just upgrade this forum and have a secondary forum section for it on the primary one if problems arise?

Sometimes notifications don't send.
Notifications are sent by the server forum is on, but claim to be sent by Tiff's private email address.
Some anti-spam systems may get suspicious about that.

Userpics will load one week and not thee next
I do have problem with KJ's pic not loading - but that's the only one hosted not "inside forum" but on Imageshack. Not forum's fault.

new post signals never show up.
For a long time the skin was missing the image for the new post signal - but this has been fixed a while ago, I see them every time...

It didn't used to be that way, but it's been starting to act up since I came back a few months ago and bringing it up in IRC KJ said he noticed things getting a little lame recently as well.  Lill may have said some stuff had gotten weird too, but I'm not sure.  If there are things that refuse to update because they have errors, then something is definitely wrong somewhere and it's not really going to get better with another update.
Have anyone tried running the consistency check in the maintenance tab of the admin panel?

And yes, I am defending the forum, in a way. Call it a bit of a professional pride.

I found that the notifications, as well as messages from google+ were getting caught in the spam filter by gmail (hurr hurr) as I had suspected might be the case. As for the pic, I see it load at some times and then a couple minutes later, it won't, then later, it will. It could be the forum, it could be image shack, but I will say that image shack is retarded as (profanity).
The image it's supposed to be is http://imageshack.us/a/img695/8281/snapshot2041s.png

I've also noticed that when I hit the "new" button to go to the new posts I haven't read, it kinda misses and puts me a post or two higher than it should...
As for profile pics, only today has hariman's pic shown up for me, and like I said, mine has been spectacularly indecisive on whether or not it wants to show.

Yanoi, Ren, if you want to test whether it's Imageshack or the boards, I've put Yanoi's / KJ's image up in my Dropbox.

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/63430134/snapshot2041s.png

That's the link to it.  If you update your forum image to that link, KJ, you should be able to test.

Actually, I haven't had a profile pic until today. I think the pics in question are the miniature pics, although I could be wrong.

It was showing a broken image as if you had one but the path was bad.  Maybe that's another weirdness to list, thinking Hariman had pic when he never did.

I would suggest Option 3

Of course, I also suggest we pillage and take all the shinies, enslave the women and children, then burn wats left......

Did the upgrade occur between 6 PM and 9 PM on Thursday?  The forums were using a green theme when I left work, and now, from home, they're blueish-white...

Well, that was an unexpected action, this I have GOT to say.  Not that I mind.  Needs one last thing other than the compatible theme, and that's the section that lists who'se been online in the last 5 minutes, a feature I liked.
