Is it only your own posts that are having this problem? or other threads also?
both
Is it only right when you post? or does it come back up as unread later as well?
it can be right when I post, or when I read someone else's post, or even occasionally if I click "Mark all threads as read"
Tapatalk/browser? desktop/mobile?
I'm only using desktop

Not only, I had it today with a thread someone posted that had no replies yet. I clicked Mark All Messages as Read a few times, and opened the thread a few times, and eventually it stopped showing up in Unread Posts.

When I clicked new replies or unread posts it would show 12:45 instead of current time 12:55
It showed what was new back then even though I read all that already.

I just had this with my post, every time I refresh the "unread posts" page it shows up the current time, even though it's showing my post as unread

I just looked at a list of 4 unread posts, clicked MARK ALL AS READ, and 3 went away but this one was left:
https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=10538.msg1947152;topicseen#new

(In case that helps with the debugging)

Seems like it on my end, happened now to 2/3 threads I posted in right now.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

For the first time ever (for me at least), a DansDeals article appeared in my 'articles for you' feed on chrome on android. I always get stuff from other points/miles/travel sites, but never DansDeals until now, even though it's my most-read travel site. I guess something about that article caught Google's eye, although that's surprising in my case, because I don't follow any sports, and I'm sure Google knows that very well!

@Dan it could be worth looking into how to get stories into people's lists, as that's how I found some of the other sites that I now visit more frequently. I imagine it could drive traffic to DDMS, and I assume there's gotta be some data out there on how Google classifies websites/posts, kinda similar to search engine optimization, just to learn how Google picks these things.

Just a suggestion....
