Light is green, the trap is clean

Postby _Marcus_ on 19/03/12, 03:18:32

Sorry, couldn't come up with a good subject for this question...

No biggy, really. Was just wondering if I'm alone in almost always having a green icon for the Interface part of the forum, even if I have read all the latest posts? It's like it's stuck or something.

this is likely due to the spam deterrents we have in place. it shields regular users from the shite posts but puts them in a queue for us to approve. any new registered user has to go through this process before they are allowed to post visible things. however, even though their posts are invisible to you, they appear to be triggering the unread icon. need to do some back-end updates and see if this is still an issue.

thanks for letting us know, i would have never known you were seeing that!

While we work on this, you can use the "Mark forums viewed" link in the top right hand corner of any forum (or on the index to clear all forums).

I never had it stick on green until starting a couple of weeks ago. Though I suppose that could just be an uptick in the amount of spam attempts, which I've noticed have been hitting the DLDB hard lately as well.

This will no longer be an issue.
