Something I've noticed lately ... when I come to the forum I usually go straight to active topics, and I can see that new comments have been made on a thread, but when I go to that thread, the last comment is not visible unless I'm logged in.

Not sure if that's by design to encourage people to sign up and log in but it seems like a glitch. I can see, from Active Topics, that last post is by person X, but when I go to the thread, that person's comment is gone if I'm not logged in.

Not too concerned about it, just wanted to bring it up.

Same thing here on about half the threads, I have to log in to have things work correctly. Would have been couple weeks ago at least this started.
Also, when logged out, about half the threads open in the white background, whereas my default settings are for the dark version.
When logged in, everything as it should be, no ads nothing, but then I am a paid lifetime member.

Ditto for me.

With regards to threads not updating when you're logged out.
We recently added Cloudflare to the site to provide an optimum experience for users for both site speed and security.
This programme prioritizes users who are logged in first so visitors to the site won't see the most up to date content. I'd say that's whats going on here.

I generally don't log in or post from my phone, just look sometimes. The most annoying thing about this site when not logged in is the ads, and now there is a video that keeps popping up in a sort of separate little window. The screen jumps around while all the ads load, making it impossible to click or move the screen until it fully loads all that garbage. Massive turnoff!!!

I also am a paid lifetime member and the site works as it should when logged on, but I have no idea why someone would join if their experience were to be similar to what I see when not logged on...

This has been happening to me sometimes too, in fact today on this very thread just now. (except in reverse; default for me is light theme and it showed up dark)

Its not just that on some threads one can't see the last post when not logged in, often I can not see anything but the first post of the last page as the entire page constantly keeps reloading over and over non stop.
Would appear to me that viewing the forum has for the most part now been limited to logged in members only.
I only view on a desktop never mobile, and find having to log in just to read posts is a PITA

If you use the "remember me" function, it'll keep you logged in so you won't have to type your username and password when you visit the site.
