Apparently any message posted via the FWtalk website is applied to the ‘last opened’ thread.
How I typically operate is navigate to to FWtalk, browse the thread and open new tabs for any that are interesting to me. So when I am ready to add my 2-cents to a topic, I usually have a dozen tabs open at a time.
So having opened 3 tabs, #1, first-opened, through to #3, last-opened:
- View tab #1 and post a reply
- The page nicely prompts me that the list will update shortly and if I want to refresh the page.
- Clicking refresh dutifully refreshes the page
the Refreshed page actually shows me the thread of the last tab (tab #3) with my message posted there instead!!
This can easily be seen in a non-commital way by opening two tabs from threads. In the first opened thread, click the ‘quote-last’ button. The thread for the last opened tab will appear erroneously.
I am guessing that some value is set when I ‘open’ a page that is used as a flag to tell the system to which message to apply the reply. Cannot this be hard-coded into the page form? It could probably be enforced a bit the same way as gmail, they do not allow you to open multiple messages concurrently at all. Although ingenious, it does not seem the surest way to prevent malformed information.
By the way, these two thread got a bit tangled because of this:
