    This is a two part problem, although I believe the first part may just be because of my browser.

    1. When in normal Chrome, forum does not load and is a completely grey screen. I can access "your" by typing it at the end of the URL. The forum loads normally when in Chrome incognito.

    2. When in the "Your" posts section, posts that I did not even make (on threads I've never posted on) and have a different name on them are showing.

    Here is a screenshot:

      The way the Forum dates are displayed can be a bit confusing.

      A change in how this data is displayed has been sent to our engineering team to be considered as a new feature.

      Here is the thread:

      Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

        Thanks Matthew. I'm aware of that already, that's not the issue. What you're referring to has been around as long as I can remember and I'm used to it.

        What I'm referring to is the fact that the top two threads are ones I've never even visited, let alone posted on!

          I looked at the "your" section for your Forum posts.
          This section will show any Forum thread you created or on which you commented.

          All the Forum threads I saw listed were either created by you or had a comment by you.

          Do you have an example Forum thread URL that is showing, but should not be?

          Preferably, one with a small number of comments as a couple have 10k+ comments.

            All good... I think I figured it out... does the most recently posted to forum now automatically bump to the top? That would explain it as I may have posted to those forum threads a few years ago.

              Yes, I believe that it how it works.

                Matt, while we have you, any reason why, under the "Your" view, the Left link does not take you to the Post ID {i.e versus} any longer -in chronological or thread view. It just goes to the first Post [OP]. The right Link {last user to respond takes you to the last post.}

                Thanks! James.

                  @James  The leftmost link is the title and logically hyperlinked to the top level of the thread. 

                  The username for the most recent posts (right link) resolved to the individual post.

                  I don't think the way these links work has changed.

                    The left link, that takes you to the top of the forum in the "your" view, used to take you to your own post.  The higher the link in the list, the more recent your own post.

                    I miss that as I now must scroll all around to find my last post. 

                    (I miss even more the email that we used to get when someone replied to our post rather than somewhere else in the same forum).
