Based on current observations, the site only refreshes now when a new story/rumour appears on the left, not when a new posting ocurs in the forum, so that could be several times a day, daily or even weekly depending on how many rumours are coming in
Well, I've given it enough time to realize this is exactly what's happening. So, this IS the new normal. A CR version of image stabilization.
Maybe for you, but I would say it's clearly a browser-dependent phenomenon. This thread, which has been dormant until you posted it, shows up in the list of 10 topics on the right side of the CR homepage when I look at it right now. Near the top of that list is a new topic that was created only a few minutes ago. The rumors on the left have not been updated since early this morning.
I'll have a hard time accepting "browser-dependent." Using three different browsers on two different computers with two different Windows operating systems, I get the same results.
