having problems with the site refreshing

Just noticed this this week. I can open the website one day and read some posts and close it out, come back the next day open it and the same posts are up from the day before. But if i hit refresh button then it brings up the new posts. same with my suscribed threads i open up and there arent any new posts but if i hit refresh it brings up the new posts

That's usually a browser problem on your end. You are looking at a cached page. Find the option in your browser that will read something like "refresh on each access". If you're using Firefox, you may want to clear cache when you exit. It's under Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> Clear history when Firefox closes; then under settings for that option select cache only (unless you also want to clear other objects as well).

Did it just start behaving that way? Maybe a setting in IE was recently changed?

Since you seem to be using IE6, I would start by upgrading to IE8 if at all possible, and if it's still misbehaving, try this:

IE8: In the Tools menu, pick Internet Options. In the window that appears, there's a tab labeled "General", and under that, in a section called Browsing History, there's a "Settings" button. It should be set to "every time I visit the page."
