A few weeks ago I noticed the "Today's Active Topics" feature/link in the saloon. This is a terrific feature where I can see today's active threads, who made the last post to the thread and a snippet of what they wrote. It seems that at some point overnight the list pointer gets reset so each day has a certain number of posts that are displayed and yesterday's posts aren't shown.

Three times over that time period I've noticed the pointer gets reset; e.g. just a few minutes ago I got this message:

"FYI
Sorry, there are no new posts today. "

I hit refresh a few minutes later and now there are 5 messages listed:

"Total Active Topics: 5"

Anyone know what's up with that?

I think it gets reset once per day, at midnight based on GMT time. (JavaRanch time is GMT time minus 7 hours).

I get the midnight thing, it's the middle of the day I was commenting on.

I'm also GMT -7
