Photonet Cookies ("Answers since your last visit")


Recommended Posts

I'm having problems with my cookies. Photonet seems unable to remember

when I last visited. I check Photonet nearly every day, but Photonet always

seems to think I was last here 4 or 5 days ago. Cookies are enabled in my

browser, and they seem to be working as I've successfully customized the

unified forum to display the forums that I'm interested in.


I once emailed Photonet about this and they explained that the system was

designed to remember my second last visit. Why would that be? - And why

doesn't it work like that for me?


Other forums that I visit show answers since my last visit. This seems a

logical and efficient model. My concern with the way Photonet works is that

the Archives suffer as answers to old threads appear at the bottom of a very

long list of threads, many of which have no new answers. Also, from a more

selfish point of view, I'm tired of memorizing how many answers have been

posted to the threads I'm interested in. How about a more conventional

"Answers since your last visit" facility?

Just like to add a little something here. When looking at the "who's online now" page then as a registered user I expect to see my own name there and this isn't always true. Looks to me like the photo.net system doesn't always know whether you're visiting or not. Could this be the reason why it's hard to get an accurate "Answers since last visit" facility.
