When I'm looking in the "see all new posts in this forum" view, I don't see the reply, quote, etc buttons. I have to click into the thread to post. I don't know if it's like this for the other views. Is this on purpose?

You should ALWAYS see a reply link on EVERY post on The 7 ALL the time because we have no expiration on threads over there. (You can even reply to yourself!)

Can you give throw me a link with an example? I must not be properly recreating your situation, because I'm seeing reply links everywhere.

This link, for example, gives me all the "new" posts in Site Bashing, but I don't have reply links.

EDIT: Upon further inspection, I only am missing the "Reply" link in the top three threads in the "new" posts view. Posts in the lower threads have the reply link. It's the same way when I click on the link again in other forums.

I think I've finally figured it out. The ones where you're not seeing the link must be over a week old, and there must be some expiration check still working in there I forgot to take out. I'll find it and fix it.

Also on the 7:

Why are there so many posts that seem to get duplicated? For example, here I see the same tomvejada post *10* straight times. And as was illustrated in a threat in the 7, it isn't always that way in the thread in real time.

I know WHY this happens (some bot or spider hits The 7 several times within milliseconds while we're trying to inject a "new" post, resulting in more than one injection of that same post), but I haven't figured out a good way to fix this and still accomplish semi-real-time updatery. I try to ferret out the dupes and blow them away when it gets redonkulous. It's on my list of things to do, just at a lower priority, like a lot of stuff 7-side.

I think I fixed this. The process that updates our newsfeeds when new threads are created is taking a bit longer due to the new way I'm tagging them (using their icon if there is one, and their forum if there isn't) so I added some locking/unlocking to the OTHER process that checks whether it's time to inject a new post into The 7 yet. Nobody cares about what I just said, but you WILL care that there shouldn't be 17 copies of the first post of a thread showing up on The 7 anymore.

Technorati seems to be working with our feed again so I've added a few of their gimmicks to the bottom of the index. Please let me know if there are any problems stemming from that (or even if you use them!) via PM or email.
