Android app showing old threads inc OTBT ones

Sorry if this has been raised before.

If I use the Android app, I notice that in Active Convos, I get pages and pages of threads marked with the 'sticky', some of which are very out of date, before I get to the actual active convos.

Plus if I go to OTBT, I can see very old threads, i.e. ones that should have gone poof after the 30 day limit, which obviously goes against the reason for OTBT. Just thought you ought to know, if you didn't already. smile

Hi fluffyanimal - we will look into this now. Thank you so much for flagging.

Hi fluffyanimal - can we just check, is this the old app or the new app?

In case it helps, I'm on the android app too and I have to scroll through approximately 46 sticky threads before I get to the start of active convos. None from otbt though?

But I don't know of this is old or new, it says it's up to date.

If You log out and back in the stickys disappear but after a few days there is loads again.

Oh, I do apologise, I was being very stupid - this is definitely the old app as it's Android! Apologies everyone!

Thank you for the info everyone.

Umm, I don't know. Just looked at the app info on my phone and it says version 1.1.

Is there a more recent release of the android app that would fix this?

I misread your bit about otbt, ignore me. grin

Hi everyone - we're having trouble replicating the issue, but we'll keep trying. Thanks for posting.

Becca, I have taken a screenshot of the old OTBT threads and would post it here if you think it appropriate - not keen to expose threads that were meant to have vanished, unless MNHQ say it's OK - or I will PM it to you if you can tell me how to put pictures in a PM.

Hi fluffyanimal - thanks so much for doing that. Would you be able to email it over to That would be really helpful.

Hi Becca, I've just done that. I should add that not only can you see the old thread titles, you can click on them and read them.
