How did this happen, Oh I see a watch this thread ticker, have unticked that.

midnightvelvetPart2 Wed 05-Aug-15 08:17:43

Same here, very unsettling. Unticking the ticker hasn't worked for me though sad

midnightvelvetPart2 Wed 05-Aug-15 08:22:27

Ah there's a sticky Noah, in Active smile

NoahVale Wed 05-Aug-15 08:24:05

Oh I cant see it.

Yes and it's very annoying as now my email inbox is full of alerts that someone else has posted on the threads I've 'watched'.

NoahVale Wed 05-Aug-15 08:25:44

oh God Pinkfrocks, that is not good

Yes me too. Since yesterday.

But... If you change on customise you lose the option to mark your and OPs posts in different colours, if you tick 'don't watch' on the thread then I think you keep the custom colours. I've had an insomniac night and been looking at this!

Just found that out Crosby & trying to change it back! smile

midnightvelvetPart2 Wed 05-Aug-15 08:31:37

I can't get my colours back on sad

Crosbybeach Wed 05-Aug-15 08:32:11

I couldn't change it back. It's a pain!

midnightvelvetPart2 Wed 05-Aug-15 08:33:23

And on my 'I'm On' page there are loads of posts showing for each thread instead of the 5 or so there was before!!

WhirlpoolGalaxyM51 Wed 05-Aug-15 08:37:27

I've unticked it and now my posts aren't a different colour any more!


FanOfHermione Wed 05-Aug-15 08:38:06

Me too.
And now that I've played with removing the 'put in watch' thingy, the colours ahve come back but different.

I do know though that I have the email notifications unchecked and that seems to be OK.

WhirlpoolGalaxyM51 Wed 05-Aug-15 08:39:50

where do I change the colours back? I can't find the options any more........

Dear god this is AWFUL

(mild over-reaction)

FanOfHermione Wed 05-Aug-15 08:41:55

Youre right whirlpool I canbt get them back either sad

midnightvelvetPart2 Wed 05-Aug-15 08:42:19

I'm on the main thread in Site Stuff, tis stickied & it appears that there is no way of getting your colours back at the moment. Lots of posters unhappy. MNHQ said that they have a clear out of customise options & it looks as though the colours have gone sad

Your warning has come too late for me, Mixed Berries.

I just put my options to watch back on and no colours back.

And I think it has dropped me down to 20 posts a page without me telling it too.

This is the worst thing to happen to me since I dropped my ice-cream on the pavement on holiday in Guernsey when I was 6 <wails>

BYOSnowman Wed 05-Aug-15 08:47:08

Why the hell do mn think anyone wants to automatically watch every thread they click into?

midnightvelvetPart2 Wed 05-Aug-15 08:53:02

Just reported my post where I say you can turn it off, as people will turn it off without realising they are losing colours. I'm misleading people.

WhirlpoolGalaxyM51 Wed 05-Aug-15 09:02:56

This is really shit.

Now my posts are the same colour as everybody elses, I keep reading them by accident, and they are really fucking boring sad
