I just noticed a short while ago, that when viewing Who's Online, the small circular green icon that normally displays next to the title of a topic in which I have participated and that someone is viewing no longer displays.

Now, this is certainly a small issue to me, and I merely bring it up to for the purpose of information, and not any kind of "complaint."

I'm not sure if I've ever seen this, Mark. It's always cool to think there are still things I don't know about vB after years using it. Can you find a picture somehow of the icon as you normally see it? If not can you describe it in more detail?

Here's a screen shot:



Notice in the top line, there is no little green icon to the immediate left of the topic to show that I have participated in that topic, but in the bottom line there is, where a guest is viewing a topic in which I have participated.

It seems to be only in more recent topics that this icon is omitted.

The green check mark means you are subscribed to that thread. I don't know what subscription settings you have so it might be a good idea to start by looking there. You can choose to subscribe to all threads in which you post or all posts in a given forum, so we should figure out what should be seeing. :)

Ah, that explains it...I recently turned off subscriptions as I found I did not need email notifications. Thank you for clearing this up! :D
