    you check your replies.

    FWIW, my [new]s aren't going away.  At all.

    On the other hand, if I open a a comment thread by right-clicking the timecode and opening it in a new tab, I get no [new]s at all.

    And I know you're probably tired of this, but Firefox is already a huge memory hog, and now this will just add to it.  And not being able to switch machines, as I often do depending on circumstances (one in the house, one in my workshop), is absurd.  And no, I'm not going to buy an android just to handle it: I can't read the site or comment comfortably on one (I realize that wasn't your persistent suggestion, but it seems to have been brought up to everyone with this issue).  This "improvement" seems an incredible inconvenience for those of us (subscribed, paying, long-time, regular, you get the idea) users who depend mightily on that information.  Okay: #end/rant

    Is it still being worked on and that's why I'm not seeing the [new]s disappear?  And, perhaps, why a thread with new comments shows no new tags?  I sure do hope so, because -- as you heard ad infinitum last night -- this pretty much renders the site unusable for me.  Surely some of the other heavy and unnecessary "features" (read: bugs) of dk4 could better be sacrificed?

    Again... sorry.  Only just learned about these two diaries, what with them having been posted in the dead of night.  Also, I'm cranky.  So again, I apologize if this comment is snippy.  Truly.

      We are working on it.

      There's one design issue that we're hoping to change - that [new] doesn't stick with a login.

      There's a big fat stinky bug that elections.dailykos.com et al can't use the same local information.

      There's some intermittent strange javascript failures that are intermittent and annoying and we need to look at, but there's nothing concrete yet there.

      And, we added some new servers, which appear to have introduced some little inconsistency in the caching.

      The way we were handling server side [new] is just not up to the new traffic we're getting, and moving it to client side has the advantage of giving us more flexible tools to work with it in terms of actually knowing if it is new. I wish we had had time to beta test it a la dk4 but it was an urgent need after the last debate.

      Thanks for your patience.

      Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!

        (oh, you're one of those West Coast folks, aren't you?)  ;)

        Figured you check your replies -- one of the things I love best about you.

        Please to explain to tired, frustrated, loyal user what this means:

        There's one design issue that we're hoping to change - that [new] doesn't stick with a login.
        Does that mean you're hoping to remove the fact that [new] now sticks with login?  Or that you're trying to get it to stick with login?

        Sorry if I'm missing the obvious.  If Joe Biden doesn't say it, I just don't follow.  ;)

        Thanks so much.
