Why won't it refresh?

I posted something in the Pit several hours ago. Just now, I hit “refresh”, but the thread configuration did not change. My post is there when I click on the thread, but it’s still where it was on page 2 when I replied. None of the other threads have been moved, either.

I don’t like that. How am I supposed to know which threads have new replies and which ones don’t? Please tell me this is not another one of those things we’ll have to live with.

Unfortunately, that’s another one of those things answered in this post in the technical issues FAQ:

Okay. Shame on me for not reading the FAQ carefully enough. Carry on!
