This might be a super odd question (or maybe even a confusing question) to ask so please bear with me. It's been a (long) while since I have touched LJ and so I am not as familiar as I used to be with how it works.
So let's say at 10:00 I see an updated list of new community posts which I will label as A, B, C, D, and E.
Let's say I take a peek at the updated list again at 14:00 and now, the post listing is NEW!, A, B, NEW!, C, D, NEW!, E.
... Wait. HOW are NEW posts appearing behind OLD posts that I had seen way earlier?
Basically, my question is, "Why and how do NEW! posts appear AFTER the old ones do? Shouldn't NEW! posts come before all the OLD! posts that I saw earlier?"
Because of the traffic of this community, I find myself getting confused and having to backtrack 25 or so posts every time I refresh the community's post listing just to make sure I don't miss any NEW! posts that somehow managed to appear AFTER all the older posts. And you know what? I DO find NEW! posts that hadn't been there previously!
It's not that big of a deal, but since I'm participating in a few GAs and because I'm watching for certain updates, all of this timeline posting mix-up is making me really concerned that I might end up missing posts that I really need to be on top of because I'm worried that the NEW! post(s) will be like some of the other NEW! posts and be buried behind older posts that I had already viewed and cycled through.
Anyone have any advice or answers? Is this an LJ glitch? Is there a way to prevent it? Does anyone else experience the same issue? I'm viewing the community posts through my friends page which is rather empty for this journal and I experience this issue with both viewing the community through my friends page and through the community itself.
EDIT: The reason I'm asking in this community is because I have a personal LJ/have used a personal LJ and have never had this happen before with new posts appearing behind old posts, etc. I wasn't sure if this is a community-specific issue (general LJ communities) or just... who knows what. Sorry if this is in the wrong place!
