Is anyone else having the inbox problem, where even though you've read received posts, it doesn't count them as read?

That is a known problem. Joe has looked at it from all kinds of angles. He's probably even stood on his head and looked at it trying to figure out how to make it work right. We will just have to wait until he or SimplePress finds the right bug killer* for this problem to go away.

*Just so we're clear. This bug killer is formulated to not kill beetles or Beatles.

I used to have that problem, but the mark all as read has always fixed it for me.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

For some infuriating reason, whenever that gif (or any gif) shows up on this computer, it starts out small then automatically grows larger and LARGER by degrees until it fills the width of the text area. But it does it s-l-o-w-l-y and jerkily – like every 3 seconds it'll expand a bit, so it takes 30, 40 seconds to reach full size. (Plus another 10 seconds or so if it's posted TWICE!) And all the time it's growing, everything below it is shifting downwards! So I'm trying to read the page (or write a post on it) and I have to deal with the bloody text dropping downwards for however long it takes. AARRGGHHH it drives me nuts! D:

I keep getting logged out. I think people have had this problem on their phones, but I'm on my desktop (Windows 8.1, Chrome).

That's an easy fix. We can simply ban the use of that gif.

Haha, but that'd be an exercise in futility anyways – it's EVERY gif that does it, not just that one! :(

(Hey maybe Ahhh Girl should change her avatar to the gif so she can see it all the time!)

Inside joke for @Zig

I'm gonna turn those dogs around on you. :-)

I don't want to cause you more frustration a-hard-days-night-ringo-14 , @Von Bontee, so I won't use a gif as an avatar. Besides, I like it when Kite uses it to punctuate a point. We'll keep it for those moments.

That's very kind of you, Ahhh Girl! But I'd actually PREFER it as an animated gif-avatar – those stay the same size and don't disrupt the screen at all!

(Also, no offense please, but I've never much cared for your avatar. Don't like suspenders, don't like Paul's pose, and really don't like the script overtop it all. I am the worst complainer about the visual aspects of this site, I know… :( )

Beginning about a month ago, all my posts do not show my smileys (on my computer, at any rate) after I publish.  This never happened for the like 1,800 posts I did prior to that…  Nothing changed on my computer in the meantime -- no new operating system, no change in browser, nothing I can think of.

That happened to me a coupla weeks ago, for a short time. Frustrating, isn't it? I already can't use the 'bible smiley-toolpad, all I've got to rely on are the :) and the :( and the heart.

It's weird. In the unread and recently updated topics thing all the things keep showing up in this. I already read them, and nobody updated them, but they keep showing on the list. Why?

Yeah thats my norm, i've gotten used to it. I also occasionally get old notifications, they're not as often as before but one will pop up every now and then.
