Anyone else open “Alerts” before scanning threads? If you do in the AM, you may find alerts on posts that are dated “tomorrow “. Curious how the creators of this page can know about posts that will be written in future. They must be that good.

Never.


I mean that I often look at the alerts after loading the What's new page. Never has it identified a post or like as "tomorrow."

That's a prediction or something. So, this is the future for Artificial Intelligence?

Don’t refresh page. Open site, hot “alert” time bell. Do it first thing in AM. IF I think, I’ll take a pix tomorrow.

I don’t remember which sister site it was on, but I have seen posts that had a time stamp that had not come yet. I think it was a few hours in advance. It was puzzling, and I figured it must have been a glitch.

You are saying the alerts button does this first thing every morning for you? Weird. I’m going to try to remember to look at it tomorrow morning.

From this AM. They posted that tomorrow but yet I can see it today. Wish I could do stocks that way-I’d make some money......

If the "future" posts are international (as @Artorius in the sample post), and the time posted is in U.S. time, it could account for the date offset.
It’s not just the international. It has to do with alerts automatically updates while posts do not. Have to refresh the page.
