I was going to my profile and noticed that some comments were missing, so I figured a mod/admin must have deleted them no big deal. I tried hard refreshing first and then I went tried a different browser, I happened to not be signed in on that browser and saw the comments there plus another comment that wasn't there before. I checked on the browser I was originally using and no comment, I then signed in on the second browser and the comments were all gone. I just tried signing out on the first browser and I once again saw those comments, then I signed in to what turned out to be my brother's account and I couldn't see the comments.

Maybe the person who posted the comments deleted them? (Can you do that? :P)

Nope, read the post, I can sign in and out and I'll only see them if I'm signed out. And it's not just comments from one person.

That was the first thing I tried but to no avail.

Try signing out dude, you might find some comments you didn't see before.

Temporary Codename: Hidden Comment Glitch

I shall now test my profile for hidden comments. Here are two screenshots for the test.

Logging out produces no new comments for me. I'd say it's a caching issue, but you have received no comments in the last hour or so. As a result, my test is inconclusive, and you should post a screenshot of the comments you see when you're logged in and when you're logged out.

Better yet Patrick you could just go to my profile and sign out and see for yourself so I don't have to go to all the trouble of giving a picture a URL.

Logging out shows 5 new comments. However, I was also able to see those comments when logged in by clicking view all comments. This looks more like a caching issue than it did before, though I'm not sure why it would affect your profile and not mine. I'll report this issue to boppins.

It might very well be a caching issue. And that's what I think too. The thing is, this problem happened for me since the very first day I visited the boards on this site and it doesn't happen elsewhere.

I could very easily reproduce the issue on my end (i could do it right now) but giving you screenshots will show you absolutely nothing because there is nothing to see. What usually happen when I post something on this board is that the page is reloaded but not refreshed and the post doesn't show. This post I'm typing won't (usually) show up after I'm sent back to the thread unless I refresh it.

Then going to the specific subforum of the post (in this case support forum) will show my name as the last poster of said thread but won't move that thread up as the last thread to have been updated by a post.

All in all, a quite puzzling bug.
