the first box that comes up is for your username. Not being used to this, I have twice now typed out the thread title over the "jinglbellfrocks". Then I have realised that the actual subject box is still there, waiting for the thread title. So...... (swear words ensue)

This is annoying in the extreme.

This is the polite version of this message.

I did the same thing, so it's not just you!

(They will "fiddle" won't they, without warning, too! Do they not realise that we are OLD and resistant to change? (Tongue in cheek emoticon) grin

Ana Thu 27-Nov-14 18:21:55

There is still nothing in my Username box when I reply to a post. Are the others who went grey still grey, or have you all been restored to black? confused

grannyactivist Thu 27-Nov-14 18:26:08

I'm still grey Ana.

Brendawymms Thu 27-Nov-14 18:42:13

Still pale and sickly looking.

This is what my husband would call "high end" or "first world" problems. It doesn't matter! grin

Ana Thu 27-Nov-14 18:48:04

Oh well, that's us told then...hmm

soontobe Thu 27-Nov-14 19:00:21

Nothing in my box either.
I once forgot to write anything in, and my post still came up with my name.
So I dont put my name in it anymore.

Oh... erm.... But does it work? This is the important bit, yes? smile

Ana Thu 27-Nov-14 19:43:51

Maybe, but why are some black, some grey and some invisible?

It may not be important in the Grand Scheme of Things, but why has it happened, and why can't it be put right...? confused

rosequartz Thu 27-Nov-14 19:49:27

It blank and I wondered what you were all talking about when you said you were 'grey', then it went grey for a while, now it's disappeared again. I have never typed my name in the box either. confused

I'll flag this to wonderful tech, but it would really help if we could see what you could see. Are you able to send us a screen shot, please? What browser are you using too, just so that we can check if it's playing up on one or all of them.

I don't know, Ana, but I'll find out.

Anne58 Thu 27-Nov-14 20:00:07

I've got used to it now, pound to a pinch of *&@$ that it will be changed again!

I refer you to my post of 18.18.37

Now, where did I leave my Werthers...............

rosesarered Thu 27-Nov-14 20:03:03

I have never used this box....... and nothing has gone grey [except my hair.]And I can dye that.

JulieGransnet (GNHQ) Thu 27-Nov-14 20:08:27

Are you on the mobile site, using an ipad or a phone?

soontobe Thu 27-Nov-14 20:11:23

Mine is internet explorer.
I dont mind being blank though.
Nothing to screenshot[even if I could do that], it is just blank.

soontobe Thu 27-Nov-14 20:12:14

and desktop

Ana Thu 27-Nov-14 20:15:28

PC, IE and can't do screen shots.

(This isn't a new problem, Julie - it was first mentioned weeks ago.)

Anne58 Thu 27-Nov-14 20:15:38

Julie using dinosaur tech here, i.e. desktop.

jinglbellsfrocks Thu 27-Nov-14 20:16:30

It does all work. It's nothing to worry about - any of it. Everything is fine Julie. Shhhhh.... Caaalm Julie (strokes J's hair and offers her a biccie)


jinglbellsfrocks Thu 27-Nov-14 20:17:39

Lona Thu 27-Nov-14 20:24:43

I'm still grey and I didn't know we were supposed to type our name in that box............................... I'll have one of those Werthers phoenix please.

Not sure I know my name hmm

JulieGransnet (GNHQ) Thu 27-Nov-14 20:28:30

Your username should already be in there but in a faint grey colour. You shouldn't have to type it in again.
