Default Why? (Old Threads Show Up)

Why do old posts [some years old] show up after I click "New Posts" Is'nt this contradictory?

Because someone replied to an old(er) thread. Which makes that reply a 'new post'.

Some threads come to the top of the "Today's Posts" list, but when you look at them there isn't a new post at all. Is that what you mean?

This happens when the thread has a poll, and someone has voted in the poll, but hasn't posted. There is 'new activity', just not a new post.

You are also confusing the term POST and THREAD. If a NEW POST is made in an OLD THREAD it SHOULD show up under NEW POST. As for the POLL voting, I would say a NEW VOTE could be considered a NEW POST as well as you are indeed POSTING your vote.

The trouble with it being a poll vote, if that's all there is, is that nothing shows in the thread as being new.

Except it shows as NEW, in both the recent activity side bar and under NEW posts, so if there is no new comment, then you should surmise there is a new vote in the poll. Been a while since I worked with vBulletin, but there should be a way to remove it from those lists, I would guess the Admin likes these old polls to pop up and renew themselves. It IS still a NEW POST whether you notice the new activity or not.

I think that most people understand that even old thrеads can have nеw pοsts in them, and that they therefore show up on the 'Nеw Pοsts' page, or the 'Tοday's Pοsts' page.

When someone says that a thrеad shows up in 'Nеw Pοsts', but there aren't any nеw pοsts (sometimes the lаst pοst was years ago), then that is exactly what they mean.

This happens when it's a pοll, and someone has vοted in the pοll, but hasn't pοsted a pοst to the thrеad.

There's no need to over think this, or over complicate it.

I think we're done here.
