I don't know how widespread this is, but over the past few months, I've had two issues occur with increasing frequency. I suspect they're related somehow.
-Upon clicking a topic listed on the "Latest topics" sidebar, it usually takes me to a post from several pages ago rather than the latest one.
-Upon entering a board, threads are displayed in apparently random order, often with threads from several weeks or more past occupying the entire front page in lieu of the threads that should be there. Sometimes reloading the page fixes the issue, sometimes it does not. Right now, reading down the "Latest" data column for the Dungeons & Dragons subforum goes 1.5 days ago, 26 minutes, 2.9 days, 6th Nov, 12 hours, 3.1 days, 3rd nov, etc.

Hi Daishain! This is because you are accessing your browser's cached content. That column has at the end of the link "Getlastpost" which your browser interprets as the last post you saw from the cache. So you might see page 3 as the latest when there is already a page 5 since you last used that link. Clearing your cache will show you the latest post instead. Hope that helps.
That would explain the first issue, but not the second. A hangup with the cache shouldn't randomize links on the same page.
And in response to Kn's experience, this has happened on all three of the devices I use to access this site. Although it might be relevant that I use Chrome as the browser in each case…

I've seen this happen there, The main Dungeons & Dragons gaming subforum, and the Introductions subforum.
For good measure, I just clicked through several other subforums I don't visit quite as often. About two thirds of them displayed this behavior just now.
