    Red numbers question (IE 6 Sp1)

    Someone please explain the meaning of the red numbers under 'Replies' in the index of this topic. Just curious, which killed the cat, so I understand. Satisfaction brought it back, so please satisfy my curiosity.

    I also have temporarily changed my default browser to Firefox, got tired of all the 'page can't be displayed. I can't upgrade to IE 7 because I'm still using that good old SP1.

    The black number under Replies indicates the total number of replies in a thread.
    The red number between parentheses indicates the number of new replies that have been posted since you last viewed the thread. This number is not 100% accurate, sometimes the Lounge software loses track, but it is a reasonably good indication of the activity in a thread.

    We had a problem with the Lounge yesterday, most users couldn't reach it for many hours. This had nothing to do with whether you use Internet Explorer or fireFox. Fortunately, the problem has been solved now.

    Thank you for the information, my curiosity has been satisfied.

    Trouble getting into the Lounge. I found that out for myself when I tried to reply to a post. I tried it again later in the evening and everything was OK, only I forgot what post I was to reply to. That's what I get for not making a note.
