    Is this icon now gone with this new version? I like to know which treads I've contributed in to see if the OP has follow up questions, etc. It makes things a lot easier for me.

    The eyes in the middle column show which threads you are watching

    I Agree. Strongly. I saw my icon in one thread that I had posted in but not in others

    But I am not watching any threads. It's just convenient to know which threads I posted in? I don't see any eyes...o.o

    Hm .. then how come I saw my icon, in smaller size, in side the icon on the left of the thread? That's what I had expected to see and I DID see it once. Maybe I'm going senile?

    Anyway, thanks for the eye. I'll look for that instead.

    Make sure the watch checkbox is clicked. The specific feature you are requesting I don't believe exists any longer

    edit: read the post below

    ah yes yes, that is it! on the left, you'll have a mini avatar that shows you which threads you've participated in

    T_T So now I have to watch every thread I would like to reply to in the future. That icon was such a convenient feature!

    It seems to only be the threads I've posted in since the update get this mini avatar? I don't see this mini avatar for any of the older threads.

    Thank you. In fact, I made a thread about it just now since it seems to be turning fuzzy upon uploading to PF's servers. The thread is right below this one.

    OK, you poisonous tree frog you, let's get some consistency here. I'm happy to see I'm not going senile after all. :p

    So old threads just don't look as pretty as new theads. What do you have against old threads? :(
    You do realize, I hope, that age discrimination is against the law. :D

    The top part of phinds post with the persons small version avatar super imposed on the avatar of the OP is the standard for seeing what threads a person has posted in when using Xenforo ... but I don't see that for any threads I have posted in



    Edit ... I backed out and it is now working ... its just that all previous threads posted in are not shown ....
    obviously that info was lost in the transfer to the new system
