Don't follow me

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

 Ouch, why do the annoying ads follow me? I ask them not to follow me, but when I look at another thread, they follow me again. It just started today.

U2?  I thought I was just paranoid.  I'm also having to log in repeatedly, same/similar issues, several machines, operating systems=XP. Vista. Ult 7, browsers-FireFox, safari 3 and 4, IE 7.  Have to log in again when opening the browser, and the thing follows me on each thread I open after opening the browser. 

 

Me thinks the cookies are crumbling.

We're looking in to it.

Thanks, Frank. I was trying not to look at it (when being followed, I avoid looking at my tail, I try to pretend I don't know he's there) but a quick glance revealed that it's not ads but a list of similar threads. It's not a horrible thing to have on the page, but I wish it would stay put. Makes me nervous.

I was gonna make the same complaint. It's just like a cockroach. Just when you think you stepped on it you lift your foot and it scurries away. Only the 'other thread' box is following me down the page. Still annoying though.

LHC,

 

On the right top corner of the Other Threads/Related Content box is a check box where you can tell it, "Don't follow me."

 

Once we get more of the content tagged, we'll be able to aggregate threads that are tagged the same on one page, which should make it easier to explore a topic farther, but you have to allow the Related Content box.

Thanks, Nolo. I'm sure LHC appreciates the tip also.

 No, it keeps coming back.  Just started the last day or two.  I had it turned off, noticed it was following me again, turned it off, went to new topic, it's back.  So far I've probably turned it off 15 times this session alone.

Sorry gang, there was a bug with the way the user preference was being handled.  It should be resolved and behaving normally again.  Let me know if you have any issues.

Yes, it seems fixed now!
