Why is it that, whenever I type the word 'new', it appears in my posts in bright red font colour?

Also, where have all the funny animated emoticons gone?

Thank you!

On your first point,  strange does not appear red to me on your posts ?

On your second point,  probably the same place our balls have gone

And I've just noticed that one of John Gulliver's posts (his latest one in the diving Caribbean thread) also has a red new on it!  Too weird.... but at least it's not just me.

I don't.

I wonder if it is a browser version issue / css or something?

It'e either the code or the data.  
Sorry poor coding joke there.

Its nothing to do with the YD coding - I suspect that you have some unwanted spyware - there is a program that highlights certains words and turns them into links to websites - can you click on the highlighted words?

I defy you to explain how that is funny. I am extremely confused. Is this what it feels like to come to a diving social when you don't dive? As Denzel Washington said at least 5 times in Philadelphia:

"Talk to me like I'm a 4 year-old."

One confused Digs.

Digger

Its a poor excuse for why a programmer's code doesn't work. Of course it's either the code or the data that is causing the problem. Now tell me why it doesn't work? A tautology? As a four year old you may not know that word


Frustrating day yesterday, now off to Jersey to grovel and apologise for something out of my control.

And no diving for me this w/e or next

It's kinda like saying:
My computer doesn't work
It's either the hardware or the software

<font color='#F52887'>Hi Lesley, in your quick reply window when you are reading a post click on the "view all emoticons" bit.  
or when you use the "post reply" button click on Help cards: [Emoticons :

Hi

I might be wrong but this 'new' thing happens when you have clicked for new posts. This then conducts a search. I guess that the search function will also bring out the 'new' text and highlight it as well as the post which will have been flagged as 'new' until you read it or until the next time you log in.

Hope that helps

Not a millon miles off mate - searching for new posts instructs the script to compare the user's cookie data with the current posts and display any items posted after last read date - it has nothing to do with searching for the word 'new'.

As I have already said, this has sweet FA to do with the YD code and I suspect it has everything to do with spyware. Try downloading AD AWARE and running it to uncover any hidden spyware on your PC

Hi

mmm. I'm running redhat 9 and mozilla browser. Theres no spyware here. Linux doesn't let anything install without telling you.

It also does the same on my PC at work which runs XP and ie 6.

No other forums do this and I go to quite a few although I don't know any other ikonboards

Kindest Regards

Andy
