Could it be that it requires the A2K toolbar to be functional?

The pulsing question mark http://www.able2know.org/forums/templates/Able2Know/images/folder_hot.gif is not a clickable icon. It's just intended to show that a topic is popular.

So what is it that Craven refers to and that Region was able to get to work?

Am I looking in the wrong spot? The icons in that same column as the pulsing question mark are the only things that appear orange in color.

I doubt Reg was referring to that -- he may have thought you meant the orange arrow icons or something like that. Very hard to tell without visuals.

This is what he meant -- the page icon:

I use them all the time. (Orange if unread.)

Ah ha! Thank you very much Soz. Never even noticed those before and thought I was going nuts because the only thing orange on the page were those hot topic icons.

Makes sense now...

I've always been curious about what those meant. Not curious enough to ask, but curious.

and I'm another one who'd never noticed those little pages before.

I guess I'm working the simple simon approach to A2K.

Re: Describe how you use the site
I have it bookmarked but do sign in.

I check "My Posts" then check "At a glance". I don't think I've ever clicked on "New posts" but I browse "Unanswered" at least once a day.

Honestly, I use it more to ask (which is why I spend most time in "My topics") than to answer and lately I'm using it much less as a social thing.

Could the print be larger please. I've noticed the lettering has got smaller over the last couple of years (so has the print in newspapers and the phonebook) and its kinda fuzzy too.

How do you use Able2Know? How do you organize the threads you follow? Please describe your typical use as specifically as possible.

I only use "Your Posts" or "Your Topics".

Generally, I only browse topics in the General forum only.

I'm guessing "user error" DP.

Does it get really blurry after a bunch of Fosters?

1. Automatically logs onto Your Posts
Scan the posts that's been responded to, and select those topics that are of interest to me
2. New Posts to see if any topic there are of any interest.
3. Forums to start a new thread.
