It started a few days ago and it is starting to drive me nuts.

even though I did no change my settings in a long time, if I chose "Filter Your View - recent topics / or recent messages" I get some very weird display. [see screen shots]

Clicking on:
Rating: random till the 10th thread
Replies: random till the 12th thread 
Age: random till the 9th thread
... etc
then thread are in the right order pass those ?!!

Note too that I cannot change the "Mark as favorite" or "Toggle not interested ... ":

If I click on a black toggle logo - it turns to red.
If I click on a red one, it turns as sticky - but DEPENDS on forum !!! 
in Mobile, Laptops, and Computers .... [not visited in a year] : they all change red to black / black to red - no stickies. 
But, same random order of messages.

in Deal Discussions [visited every day] , "sort by recent topics" , the 4th & 5th threads are from beginning of 2016

Plus I now have some randomly marked as sticky or favorite. I know I did not do that.
I am showing the "Free stuff" because I rarely visit it and NEVER marked threads sticky or favorite in there.

[Tosh laptop, WIFI, using Win7 & Chrome - no change in a year.]

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hey MikeBeets,

You seem to be describing a problem that you are having specifically with viewing the Fatwallet website, and this sort of issue would fit under the Fatwallet forum (https://www.fatwallet.com/forums/fatwallet), not in the Technology forum where your thread is currently located.

I have alerted the overnight mods to your issue, and they said they will tell the morning team on Saturday morning, who can try to assist you.

Thank you for letting us know, let us look into this and get back to you first thing Monday morning!

Hey MikeBeets,

Have you tried the clearing your cache? Sometimes I've seen weird results be fixed by clearing out cookies. Otherwise, we'll make sure our full team can evaluate this issue on Monday.

rated:
NO, I am not too anxious to clear my cookies if there is another way.

rated:
Try clearing cache without clearing cookies.  I understand not wanting to "toss your cookies"!

done - NO change

I thought that what I did would do the job: see image

and Incognito Browser: no change

[I found this image on a help site, so it's slightly different:  I did not delete my cookies]

rated:
Hmm...the next thing I can think of, did you try a different Browser?

I've had a case where the browser install corrupted.

rated:
<< did you try a different Browser?>> 

shouldn't I get problems elsewhere ?

I'll try firefox.

IE: same problem

  Sounds like our team will have to look at it. They should be in first thing tomorrow morning. Thanks for trying all the suggestions, mikebeets - that helps us narrow down the problem (and rule out the obvious).

FYI

I visit hot-deals several times a day [when I have WIFI - and I have it this last week]

New threads being added - all I say below will still apply:

In HD, threads #1 & 2 have red markers - when clicked turn to sticky:
1_ Back To School Deals Roundup    last post 07/27/17
2_ Deal Roundups Master Thread    last post 05/24/17
I never was interested in those, and "toggle not interested in topic" does not work, so I cannot get rid of them. 

The 3rd thread is correct:
3_"Sticky Official Thread - Tracfone bonus codes" - I stickied it.

I have lost my 2nd Tracfone sticky: "Current Tracfone Bundle"
it is currently in page 3, with red marker - when clicked turns to black.


hot-deals only:
page 1, threads are in correct "last post order",  starting on #4


BUT:
others forums I did not visit often, correct order will start at 7th or 14th
Some old posts are before stickies.... etc
Some of FW stickies are red only, some new ones have appeared ... all randomly positioned.

Finance, not visited in a while: "last post order" starts at  14th thread.

SO:
_ one of my sticky NOW showing red mark will turn to black [Tracfone] 
_ some were FW stickies ["Welcome ..." in Finance"] : showed red & clicking on the red mark turn them back into stickies.... after I refresh the page or 2nd mouse over !!! 

obviously ..... my mouse must be defective

Hello, it looks like you clicked (includes hidden topics) this can make some threads look like they are sticky.

Please let us know if it looks better for you now.

I clicked on that AND it looks like the problem is solved.

As far as I can tell, I had not changed that lately.

Thank you very much for your help - now I will check & see if everything behaves correctly.
-------------------
UPDATE - NEARLY OK:

I tried to put back as sticky this Tracfone thread :

https://www.fatwallet.com/forums/hot-deals/834707 
last post: Jul. 30, 2017

I do not see it anywhere - I found it by searching.

Then I clicked on Mark as Sticky 
 It took OK [now shows correctly: Remove as Sticky ]


BUT:

I still cannot see it.
Being a sticky it should be beginning of page 1, with the other one, but it is not.

I looked to the end of page 10, everything looks in order.
last post: 07/27/17 12:43p

EXCEPT my Tracfone hot-deals/834707 is LOST


I randomly picked a thread on page 20 [last post 07/24/17 4:53p] , marked it as sticky, refreshed page, and it's correctly top of page 1.

One thing for sure - it's better than it was and I may have to live with that.

Thanks again for your help

  This thread is in expired deals. 

Are you looking in the expired deals thread?

When I mark it as sticky for myself I see it at the top of Expired. 

rated:
<< expired deals >> ?

when I checked around 11am this morning, the link was 

hot-deals/834707 

I saw it yesterday in HD [random order] and it had a post yesterday at 8:39 am

Now , about 3 hours later, it redirects me to 
expired-deals/834707

I have moved it back to hot deals.

That should fix it.

I think that I did that with one of my wild clicks !!!!

It's OK now, thanks a lot
