I was getting the op's post highlighted earlier even when I wasn't signed in to Mumsnet.

MNHQ have been removing "unused functions" in customise

I opened this thread expecting to read about a previous thread and a poster with, ahem, an adventurous technique to v personal grooming (My highlighted bits). I have obviously been on mn for far too long.

I still have the highlights <make of that what you will>

but every thread I post on is being added to my Watch List.

so that's helpful. NOT

I think someone at MN has been feckering about and muddled everything together.

Me to. I'm keeping well out of customise.
Please go add your disapproval to the linked thread... Pretty please?
I can't stand the thought of everything in I'm watching, or email notifications, but loosing colours would be worse!

I agree that it used to be that the OP was always highlighted in one colour so when you scrolled down you could see their responses. Now I have to keep scrolling up to find out their username- really annoying! And my posts used to be highlighted in the colour of my choice but this has gone. It's annoying and one reason why I stopped bothering with MN for a while but I've come back recently because I'm so bored ( sitting at hospital bedside 24 hours a day makes you want to eat your own arms). On iPad I have no idea how to find topics or search or anything so I only go on what's active too. I do think MN has over complicated itself sadly. And I've been a user since 2006

There has been meddling. angry first the 'Trending' awfulness and now this.

ShuShuFontana Tue 04-Aug-15 18:46:55

i still have the colours, the op is dark purple, I am lighter purple, but really, adding everything to watch is just nonsensical.

Sparklingbrook Tue 04-Aug-15 18:54:49

How do you get the colours back?

Colour highlighted posts were fine earlier on today - even after the damn fiddling started.

Now they've all blarsted disappeared. And the options have disappeared from Customise.

I'm fed up with this damn fiddling angry

Nothing's been the same here since (original and Main) Tech left MN angry

I still have colors, automatic watch thread has been happening all day though and its annoying

usualsuspect333 Tue 04-Aug-15 18:58:48

I still have colours.

Sparklingbrook Tue 04-Aug-15 18:59:24

YY Fru down with this sort of thing.

Sparklingbrook Tue 04-Aug-15 19:00:15

I had colours til I started trying to switch off the thread watch malarkey that I had never switched on in the first place.

DixieNormas Tue 04-Aug-15 19:02:23

I really really want to untick the thread watch thing but don't dare now incase my colours dissappear

usualsuspect333 Tue 04-Aug-15 19:02:33

Bit of a PITA to untick the watch thing on every thread.

usualsuspect333 Tue 04-Aug-15 19:03:29

I've unticked it on this thread and still have colours.

OhBigHairyBollocks Tue 04-Aug-15 19:05:40

I thought it was my tablet playing up!! So everyone else is getting this watched threads business?!?! What was wrong with the 'i'm on' function?!

My OP posts are still highlighted though.

FruSirkaOla Tue 04-Aug-15 19:05:51

Quite, Sparkling!

Down With This Sort Of Thing, MNHQ

Sparklingbrook Tue 04-Aug-15 19:06:47

It's when you mess in Customise usual. there appears to be no way of getting the colours back, the options have disappeared in Customise.

Who uses 'Watch thread' anyway either post or Hide it.
