I use the 'My Posts' feature a lot. Sometimes it's baffling to see a thread tagged as having new posts but at the same time seeing that I myself am the last poster... Boog!

Could be caused by the mzforum_t reaching it's maximum size.
Try to delete that cookie if it hapens and see if the visited flags get updated once again.

Sounds interesting. I remember seeing some such thread but I never quite grasped the issue. Deleted it, we'll see.
EDIT: still happens. (well, that would have been too easy...)

For the last few days every now and then I get this error:
Warning: mysql_connect(): Unknown MySQL Server Host 'jenna.mozillazine.org' (2) in /www/prod/sites/mozillazine.org/forums/db/mysql4.php on line 48

Warning: mysql_error(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /www/prod/sites/mozillazine.org/forums/db/mysql4.php on line 330

Yep. Sometimes.

Yes, and there has been a 16+ hour lag in getting email notifications. Some problems at OSU servers if I read my mail headers correctly.

When I try to view any other page of My Posts besides the first one, I only get an error message stating "No topics or posts met your search criteria".

Just add the &start=30*(pagenr-1) parameter to to the my post url:
http://forums.mozillazine.org/search.ph ... h&start=30 (60 etc.)
I have a bookmark with a keyword for that (mzse):
http://forums.mozillazine.org/search.ph ... rch&start=%s
(also works for search_id=unanswered and others, some have 15 posts per page)

It only happens for us who have a lot of pages in ego search.
It seems to happen if there are too many search results.
You can test it with unanswered posts and click next at the bottum.

For the past 2 days - at least, as i haven't noticed that before - i don't see "View your posts" on the Index page (in fact, i don't see any of those 3 lines that used to be there but 'View unanswered posts'). I'm logged in though. Anyone else or could be one of my styles (i checked them and didn't find a culprit there)? TIA!
