so less likely to be the case if using a generatorYes
One of my sites has a relatively large forum, which is mapped with LastMod set to the date of the last comment on the thread, which works really well.Can you explain how you setting the lastmod to the last comment date, i also have a forum section in my site.

if you are able to provide it accurately and dynamically
dynamic script for your forum softwareActually i am not using any software for forum section. There is web pages navigation system like on main forum page contains the list of all categories-->next page contains list of subcategories based on the category which is clicked---> next page contains all the post related to the category and subcategory from the last two pages--> next page will show the actual posts and option to give reply on that. I am using URL routing and some code logic to create seo friendly URLs for each of the page. So there is only single page for all the posts in the background. Its such that the page shows corresponding post, its title, url for each post.
Can you tell for sure that the search engine is using the information from your sitemaps and not from its own observation? You said "gained trust in my sitemaps". I've wondered about that occasionally. Is some part of google's computer set aside for comparing site-map statements with observed fact, so after a time it can "decide" whether to trust the sitemap when a new page is listed?
