This (or something like it) is appearing on some members profile page


I think it's a tracker of some sort. UUgghh..

Yep, just found more here too, thanks!

»Weird "blank face icon" next to logo

I don't see the "face icon" though, probably because I'm using a dark (black) background theme. It scared me, I typed in a word, it made a link, then I couldn't get rid of it, lol.....I also have mouseovers disabled, so I didn't see the words either.

EDIT: just saw your edit, I haven't got that far yet, I'll check it out.

I don't see a face icon either and I'm using the blank theme. (or lack of theme, whichever way you want to look at it)

It's two dots, I guess it kinda looks like an ascii face when you hover over it and it gets underlined. If you squint. And stand on one foot. --> ..

Yeah, those "two dots" are what got me in trouble in the first place, lol....hmmm, I said to myself, what's this, and I clicked on them. What should I be "doing"? So I typed "help" just for funsies. Then I typed "online"....now it's STUCK THERE (along with "help" in my profile) and I can't get rid of it.

Someone changed it from "Doing" to "Talk".....mice in the machinery?

It changes back. I got the "Talk" one right after I read an IM. But now in the forums I'm back to "doing".

Not uncommon when a change is made, takes a little while for it to make its way through all the boxes in production. It'll settle down after the programmer does..

EDIT: Please ignore what appears to be a plea for help in my profile. I am in no danger.

It is longer in the popup, and on your home page.

I called it a "blank face icon" cause it kinda looked like when I highlighted (at least to me).

Is it supposed to pop up when you hover over your own name? It's not doing it for me on Safari 2 or Firefox 2 on Mac. Other popups are working fine.

My name in the buddy list next to the BBR logo, under the point where you enter the "Doing..."

Sure, doesn't everyone? I (or somebody) filed a bug years ago about not being able to unbuddy myself and we had quite a laugh over it.

That worked great. I'm not my own buddy any more.

Lots of people do, you can see it in their screen caps when they post with issues.

I've been meaning to do a poll on the subject for a long time: are you your own buddy, and if so why?

I don't know if I'd call myself my own buddy, but I never leave the house without me.

If you are your own buddy and you have a fight with yourself, do you put yourself on ignore?

Dunno, I'm not my own buddy...but an interesting concept.

Wouldn't people who are their own buddies be said to be suffering from schizophrenia? Or would that be just blatant egotism?
