I stay connected to the forums in a browser window. I will frequently refresh the display to see where the new messages in each forum have come in.
Sometimes - infrequently, but it happens almost daily - I will refresh and see no new message indicators, but I have received an e-mail notification that there are new messages. If I log out and then back in, all is well.
Is this a symptom of an older version of forum software? I noticed the most recent copyright at the bottom of each page is 2007.
Until just recently, I would have agreed that the timing was about right. However, the past couple of days has shown me the odd behavior multiple times in a six-hour period - no new messages in any forum until I log out then back in. I suspect it could just be the age of the forum software. I'm not losing any sleep over it.
This is what I use for my Waze bookmark button: https://www.waze.com/signin/?page=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.waze.com%2Fdashboard%2F This way, the first thing I do when I get here is sign in, then immediately see my Dashboard to see how far down the ranks I'm sinking due to my laptop being out of commission. I then use a second bookmark button to come to the forum (and having already logged in at the Dashboard, I'm never asked for a login at the forum).
