How come the PT main page isn't showing me the number of replies on each of the last 5 threads?

Each thread does show the replies and number of them.

Yeah, but they always come back.

Usually to really old threads.

There are a lot more old threads than new threads.  If they pick a thread at random then...

reCAPTCHA seems to work really well at TSZ. From deleting a dozen or so spam registrations daily to none at all. No complaints about false positives so far! (Mind you, how can they?) :)

I'll have to have a look to see about that.

There is the issue that the latest OS upgrade broke the PM facility in the IkonBoard software. The longer-term solution may well be switching to a modern forum package, though every time I look at the feature set there is something missing that either was part of IkonBoard or that I've hacked in over the years. So reCAPTCHA and how awkward the integration might be would play into that decision.
