I’ve had 11 since lunch…

C

I’m pretty sure that number only reflects the number of topics something new was posted in since last you read them and that there could be any number of actual posts that are new inside those topics.

@slelieveld Pretty sure it’s rock solid!

Good for you! I think it is solid as well. But since 4 days I only have 15 “new”. Settings are set to “see all” as new. So Its not dead but certainly not very alive.

There’s something amiss then as I’ve had more new posts than that this afternoon

As this is my last unread post. I’ll see what it tells me when I get back in a couple of hours

What “new” do you have then in an afternoon?

I have in 4 days:

In two hours only 3 posts :smiley: . I’ll keep up the count for you

C

3 new threads and 7 unread posts in other threads overnight…

C

Yes me too with this amount.

No new since this morning… :thinking:

Had another 6 or 7

C

Another 8…

Ok to the point… this forum is a bit slow because there aren’t that many users. I am also on he HA forum which I have practically never seen more than 10 min between 2 posts and is very difficult to keep up with… So it is all relative. I wouldn’t call it dead but hopefully more users will come in and share their experience and problems. As @rigpapa said, it could be because there are fewer problems or that people just gave up hope on getting the problems fixed or that they moved on to other platforms. I think this forum remains a great source of information and help.

I think the OP has hit one of the (several, if I’m honest) things I don’t like about this software

  1. Unread != unread. It only shows unread posts in topics that you are ‘tracking’ So you have to track every topic if you want a complete picutre
  2. New Topic != Unread. I’m not even going there.
  3. Latest view still makes you scroll through stuff you’ve read. And you have to go to the latest view because, well, point 2

Rafale77, yes agreed, I don’t see a lot of well knowns a lot anymore (amg, richard shaeffer, forgot his name but he wrote the previous best app before imperihome to control vera, etc.). And sorry Melih, but I would have expected a lot more since the takeover.

I am still a big big fan of Vera!

But the (ongoing) lack op proper device support for zwave devices is killing my appetite. And I think the fact that having all my automation built in Vera and migrating to another platform is not a simple project still keeps me with Vera…

Speaking as a former “Top 10 Poster” (that was nearly 10 years ago, back when we were all moaning about new UI releases and sundry bugs), I’m very happy with my once-a-week summary of new posts.

I like the new forum format and the (overall) positivity it seems to engender. In fact, I actually get a bit excited by new content now, since I figure it means something constructive has been added.

The rest of the time, I just sit on my hands and enjoy how my VeraPlus is operating now, confident in the knowledge that the “folks in charge” are dreaming up new and better ways for the unit to interact with the world. #IFTTTin2019 #ecobeeNative #etc

:slight_smile:

20 new posts since 6 days…

1 interesting message from Melih about new hardware (firmware on existing vera’s as well) that gives me a little hope (a very little).

The ‘New’ category is confusing indeed. It only shows the new topics and that is not so much indeed. Replies to existing topics only show in latest. I now go to latest until I see the red horizontal line that indicate what I should have seen during the previous visit.

BTW latest won’t show you new topics…

After a long time of monitoring this forum I must say this is more dead than alive… I have about 1-3 topics a day and about max to 5 replies to existing topics a day (on average). The old forum had a lot more interaction…

I hope this is due to the ramp up of the new forum…
