Broken new topic counter


The forum is telling me that there is new topics, yet when I go to the new topics tab they all disappear.
Only thing I can think of that may be causing this is if a mod/leader is creating hidden topics of sorts and the forum doesn’t recognise that I’m not allowed to see them until I click on the ‘New’ tab
Picture shows only 1 new topic but it keeps on going up if I don’t click the ‘New’ tab


I’m making new topics, not a bug. Apologies if this is annoying.
