I cannot seem to get the little new posts symbol to come off my posts when there has been no reply on the ones I am watching. The little blue thingo stays on when I am the last post.

When you click on the thread then, does it go away?

I'm not much help because that's one of the extraneous graphics I use Adblock to block, so I don't see it. But I wonder whether you need to click on the thread after posting in it to make it go away. That would seem foolish ...

btw, there's no need for all-capitals in the subject line here ... or on any post on the board. Many people dislike being shouted at in general, and no post here is more deserving of attention than any other. ;)

Hi Pittsy

If you mean the little envelope at the side which says whether or not a new post has been added which you have not seen. It seems tohave stopped working. There is a thread on this board asking for this very useful icon to be reinstated.

I hope this helps
