List of Forums doesn't mention new topics, just comments? Answered

I consider this a bug; y'all might call it a feature request. Whatever... :-)

The two images below were captures within less than a minute of one another. The list of forums (first image) shows that "RachelisBored" was the most recent person to post to the Art Forum, three days ago.

However, the Art Forum itself (second image) claims that "softrevolution" posted more recently, earlier today! The difference is that "softrevolution" created a new forum topic, while "RachelisBored" added a comment to an existing topic thread.

To me, this is a bug. A posting is a posting is a posting. Is this something that is easy to fix, or are top-level Forum Topics classified differently in the database than comments?

Comments

The forums are retiring in 2021 and are now closed for new topics and comments.

Top level forum topics are stored differently than comments. You can get the info you want by sorting on recent 'posts' versus recent 'topics'. We should probably change the term from 'post' to 'comment', there, for consistency.
