Slightly irritating technical glitsch

Not sure what to make of it, but here's the response we got:

If a topic is set to expire, I believe the pt flasher can also be used to notify the user that PTs are expiring. I haven't played with that much yet though.

Wow, this thread is 1.5 years old?

Anyway... how did you get rid of the flashing folder? :P Mine's been flashing for an hour or two, there aren/t any new PTs, I;ve been clicking the folder like mad, logged out and back in and cleared the cache...

that's happened to me on several occasions. It drives me nuts, then it disappears for some random reason. I think it's just there to annoy.

Or, as Martin said, "uhh, uhh.... it's supposed to do that! cool, innit?"

Okay, I got rid of it the other day, but it keeps happening anyway... whenever I and someone else reply to a PT at the same time, my folder won't stop flashing. It's driving me mad.

okay, I found another solution: in your control panel, go to "display options" and allow "clear PT flasher"

this will clear the flasher once you've been to your PT list (and not only after you read all new PTs)

so far so good, the funny thing is that I encountered a new bug - It seems now I can't disable this option anymore :P

Another thing to keep in mind:

By default, your PT flasher will display when a person decides to do a PT Cleanup of a PT that they participated in with you.

You can go into Control Panel and check the box that says Ignore PT Cleanup.

This option prevents the PT flasher from displaying when a person leaves a private topic you are participating in.

We're in the queue for an upgrade to the latest version of the boards, which I'm hoping will solve this and a few other little glitches. There are some nice new features available as well. :cool:

I can only imagine my ancestors complaining of things that everyone now is complaining about.

My personal theory is, after civilization, the true, only thing to complain about is/was constipation.

Now; people complain because someone didn't text them fast enough! Or, if the NetFlix video didn't arrive on schedule.

Man, when my great grandfather was worried that his tobacco crop might not meet "fair to middlin'"

that was a major set-back

Now, the only set-back society has is whether they want Le Seur peas or regular peas.
