    Admin, this is probably a stupid question but can you tell me what the two red lights are beneath Assistant Commisioner and my name? It looks like a battery charging signal. I appear to be the only poster with these red lights.

    Thanks.
    That's the "Reputation" indicator, apparently. https://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/...ons_reputation briefly discusses it. You seem more reputable than the rest of us.

    When I park a cursor over yours, I get "will be famous soon enough". The rest of us (apart from Spryder's, which is disabled) have "is on a distinguished road".

        You won't with a touchscreen device, no, whether iOS or Android. I gave the cursor hover messages because you'd said earlier that you used a phone and an iPad, so I knew you'd not see them, and thought that they were mildly interesting.

        What that "Reputation" bar apparently shows is the result of some calculation involving the number of posts you've made compared to the number of "likes" you've received. You've got a couple likes in the Julia Wallace thread, which may be the cause of that. On the other hand, as you seem to be the only one with a non-default score, it may be that the system isn't fully operational yet. Regardless, more coloured boxes are better.

                Something inexplicable (to me at least) keeps happening when I’m writing a post. A message often appears saying: Invalid Server Respone. Please try again.

                Ive been experiencing no issues with typing or posting at all and when this message appears I simply click ok and continue. I’ve noticed though that I have to re-enter my password before posting (even on relatively short posts. It’s just an irritation. Does anyone know what might be causing it and if I can do anything (simple) about it? This is only occurring on Casebook by the way. I have an iPad if that’s at all relevant.

                All that said it looks like I’m going to get to the end of this post without it happening. Bloody witchcraft!

                  I assumed it was a site glitch, happens to me also. I am on a laptop, so don't think it is iPad specific. Not much help, sorry.

                    No problem Eten. It’s not causing me any real problems it’s just a bit irritating and I don’t want it to get worse. Maybe it will go away.

                          A bit strange?

                          There appears to be a thread called Candles Online India which I tried to view only for a page appearing telling me that I’m not authorised to view it? Anyone know what this is all about?
