Duplicate  I get an alert of for an already seen post


Well-known member
I write a post. I click on "Post this post".

I see my post, but before that the "a moment ago" post from another user is displayed above, it is inserted there.

I go to the forum start page. And see an alert of the "a moment ago" post from the other user.
Ya but i don't think the forum checks to see if you looked at the thing that triggered the alert before actually viewing the alert. If it did i think that would be too server intensive.

This is really the same underlying thing as not being in the thread, reading the thread and then noticing the existing alert as new. A fix should that would fix this too.
