I noticed Mar52 has a duplicated post over on the "Canned Soup" thread.

I have had several duplicated posts today. I just chalked it up to too much Bulleit Bourbon last night though.

The View Post Since Last Visit has been hit and miss, mostly miss and I have to use the Today's Posts to see what's new. No changes on my side. All this since yesterday evening's outage and return to service. And yes, I tried resetting the time. The RF server keeps track of our viewing history and preferences, so session cookies shouldn't matter besides our username and password.
 
I noticed nobody has mentioned this.

You folks are not the only ones having this issue.  It happened to me several times yesterday.  I hope it resolves itself.

The View Post Since Last Visit has been hit and miss,
This hasn't worked at all for me in the last day or so.  At least my posts aren't duplicating.

Guys, we did some serious repair to our database, which could explain your issues.  The good news is the search function is working again, but it seems there may be some lingering side effects.  Please post your issues here.  Thanks!

It appears that the duplicate posts are for people on your Contact/Friends list.

Joe, can you explain that a little more for me.  The more details we have, the better we can troubleshoot.  Thanks!

The only post that are duplicate, for me, are the people on my contact list.  Also, the "Online User List" is showing all my contacts twice.

I am having the same problem with the double posts. The online member list is showing my name doubled and my contacts doubled. I also couldnt visit the home page  for several hours yesterday.

I haven't experienced the duplicate post issue. This current log-on, did take me to a Posts After Last Vist list instead of telling me there are none. Hopefully all is working.

The Posts Since Last Visit isn't working again. Back to "There is no record to display" despite several new posts since I posted 50+ minutes ago.

Another issues is that the new post button to the left isn't always lighting up for new posts.  Very sporadic.

So far the "Posts Since Last Vist" function has worked reliably every time I've logged in today.
 
One thing that I've noticed from my view is that the rank and stars of the poster is not displayed in the duplicates, just a placeholder icon.  I also noticed the same thing other's have mentioned that it's only those in my contact list that dupe.

What's with the blue Adsense arrow button that shows up and floats through inside the text box when you're composing a new message? This thing was floating through my composition of my Microwave posting. I never seen that before.
 
My cache and all browser cookies,passwords,history, and autocompletes are flushed with each exit. I just logged back on to post that message with no history.

Well now I'm not seeing them at all.  Although, the "Latest Forum Conversations" list on the home page indicates my posts registered.  Can anyone else see my last two posts in this thread?

Yes, I can see them.  It seems like the posts are not actually duplicating on the system - only certain people see certain posts as duplicates.  Still investigating the issue, unfortunately I can't recreate so it is tough to troubleshoot.  Thanks for your patience.

Stephen,
Also, what happened to that little icon on a topic that let you go to the last unread post?

Go to the Personal Message area, click contacts/friends tab and then delete all your contacts/friends.
 
This will fix duplicating problem. Problem has something to do with, or is triggered by those in your contacts/friends list.
 
Not ideal fix, but will work.

I posted this in the bugs section ... but this may have a little to do with this problem.    Each time I logon the 'new post' search uses the current logon time.   Of course there is no new post since I just logged on.  ... I have to reset the last time to do the search.

I had mentioned this to Stephen as well. As you said, you can manually reset the clock, but it used to keep track of your last visit. Hmmmm.

This is what I ended up doing and I am no longer getting the duplicate posts.

I have the same problem. Every time I come on Roadfood and click on Posts Since Last Visit I get "Empty." I reset time of last visit and everything is fine, until I leave and return to Roadfood. Then I have to go through the whole thing again.

Same here, Mr. Hoffman.Plus, I have to sign in everytime. No big deal, but an annoyance, to say the least.

Go to the Personal Message area, click contacts/friends tab and then delete all your contacts/friends.


Sounds like a divorce.
