only 250,000 more files to go ;-)

if the logo is up side down - you are on the new server.

Does the logo being upside down mean the same thing as a flag upside down - you are in distress Brett?

Suppose it is something with me and not the new server, but why would the "Mark forums read" not work?
It is like that on several browsers and machines, it just does not mark my threads as read at all...

I did notice that my message count did not update (shy about 20 but who's counting?), but I will say that over the last week the speed has come and I'm loving it!

Thanks, Brett.

Every post at WW should be signed that way.

Yup, it's a known issue. Really annoying, especially on mobile where you don't have the large comprehensive view to see what you've responded to.

While it's being worked on, the "Mark Forums Read" issue can be dealt with by resetting the WWF cookie which can be done with this resetter link: [webmasterworld.com...]

Yes thanks not2easy, and I do that but it is still a PITA since when there are a dozen updated threads, some in the same forums, it's a challenge to keep track of them especially on mobile.

That link clears all the markers at once. Not very helpful going through threads one by one without paper & pen.

I am enjoying the faster speed. This was a much needed upgrade. Thanks for the hard work Brett.
