Little Blue Dot Thingies
Not sure if this has to do with the website name propagating thing, but ever since the site went down those little blue dots to the left of the threads do not update correctly for me.

Those dots used to be light if there were new messages in a thread, and then go dark once I've been in the thread to read those new messages.

Now they don't go dark after I've been to those messages anymore. Even if I refresh (and I have my IE web browser settings to "always retrieve new page information" or whatever that setting is).

Not exactly pressing, but I thought I'd mention it anyway.

It hurts my OCD... oh, the pain.. light dots everywhere!! :)

As you navigate around, does it change at apparently random times between and ?

No, it doesn't change.
I have never seen it be only before. But I'm not always looking. I did just take a quick tour around and check it, and it was always

Re: Little Blue Dot Thingies
Ha! :)

Thanks, I even skimmed over that info and didn't notice. I guess I didn't skim well enough.

You can fix this problem by deleting cookies. If you use FireFox then you can delete cookies for just EvC Forum alone. If you use IE then you can only delete all cookies. You'll have to log in again, so be sure you know your password.

Thanks for the help, worked like a charm!

I do use IE (I know, FireFox users despise me...) but, well, I'm just too lazy to bother screwing around with another browser. I'm a sheep :)

Anyway, I didn't have to delete all cookies. I went into the folder where the cookies were stored and just deleted the "" one. So I didn't have to delete them all. But you are correct that there is no way "from IE" to delete just one or a certain few.

That is, after I waded through the miles and miles of porn-site cookies... how did they get there? :)

Anyway, thanks for the help!
