    Send Private

    Why is it so hard to get the little flashing message icon to go away? Even when I've read the messages and navigated carefully with return to start page (or whatever) buttons instead of the browser's back button, it still may take several tries to get rid of the darn thing. Shouldn't it just evaporate once you enter your message page? After all, you can see the new messages in front of you, you don't need to be reminded to look again.

    The flasher stays while-ever you have any left unread. Once you've read them ALL it goes away.

    But Charlotte these messages come with the title of "Moderator" until Eileen can get all boards covered. And we need to know who is included in the CLUB.

    I love your little bouncy guy, Dave. But what are you talking about?

    Charlotte,
    In the first post you stated 'Why is it so hard to get the little flashing message icon to go away? ".
    With all of the new Moderator being made and Eileen sending out the Private Messages about them is why there is a large list of new messages. I was stating this to be a fact and as you thought that you had read all of these messages Eileen was sending out another. Now that she has most boards covered they seem to be fewer and fewer.

    Oh, OK! I just lost track of the thread there. Actually, that didn't seem to be what was happening, but now I'm simply deleting the messages when I finish reading them and the letter icon goes away when the messages are all gone.
