Not sure if you consider this a bug or not?
Here is what's happening. I have a staff forum hidden from view for guests and members. it is set-up to not count any posts made on it towards a members post count. What I'm seeing happen is that, if I'm talking to a staff member on that hidden forum and then look at the Dashboard page as guest logged out. Recent Activity (post list) is decreasing and not getting replaced with other posts (if all last posts made was on the hidden staff forum), none was made on public forums. So eventually a guest will end up seeing no recent activities on dashboard listed (posts) if staff are just using the hidden forum posting all the time. Same thing is going to happen for members as well, not just guests.
Why are posts made on a hidden staff forum that members and guests don't have permission to see, are they bumping the post list down for them on Recent Activates on Dashboad page. And then not getting replaced with other posts because both groups don't have permission the view the posts that is bumping the oldest ones of recent activities list. I can have 10 posts from public forums listed to guests and members in recent activites on dashboard. If between me and another staff member we make 10 posts in 10 minutes on the hidden staff forum - there will NO recent activities (posts) listed to guest or members anymore.
I have even tried unticking the boxes for the staff forum to: not index post in search, not count them towards similar threads, not count posts towards a members post count. Still makes no difference.
