Can anybody see this?

It's never appeared in my 'New Posts' section and nobody has commented at all, so I'm just wondering...

yes. once you have clicked on a new post it doesn't appear again until someone else replies. I will do it in the morning as I'm heading off shortly to pick up drunken women
