    So I am.

    All I was seeing before was for sale ads.

    When in doubt, log out, clean out your web browser and re-boot.

    It's because you aren't using your usual user id.

    I suspect it is a 'feature' added during the latest interruption of service. Most of the "new threads" are ebay ads, so I am guessing that the new TDPRI owner is selling space to Ebay, and "monetizing consumer interest in enthusiast forums". But keep it quiet - don't tell anyone I said this, or I will have to listen to 13 pages of newbies telling me what a wonderful free experience we are privileged to share.

    Well I'm a relative noob myself, but this latest consumer directed advertising isn't floating my boat much. Clearing my cache didn't work either, it's back.

    Also, my 'Alert' thingy top right isn't working. It's not highlighting liked/quoted responses to my posts like it used to

    Are the new regime sending out a subtle message? :D

    I realize his answer only took him 20 seconds, but you still owe @brogh the 2-hour minimum service charge. :D

    it's ages that there's this script that automatically adds telecasters on ebay ( the italian one never worked reported that ages ago and it was removed )... it has always been there .. difference now it's that it's finally working as intended.

    and .. jhundt... it's not the first time that you try to steer discussion with posts that in some way try to make the staff look bad ... if you don't like it here .. why do you keep coming ?

    Ah, it's only a minor irritation. It just means I have to scroll a bit further to see the 'new posts' column :)

    I believe those new posts are in the 'Teles for sale on eBay' forum.

    They've always been going there, we just never had a running record of it. I kinda like having that there, since I always refer to the 'New Posts' section to see what's going on anyway.
