A few minutes ago on this thread:,47913.0/topicseen.html

I saw Frances, zeppelin captain's avatar in each post substituted for the little red gear icon that logs how long a person has been on-site.

That is, where someone's identifier would normally have five red gears, I saw five identical small photos of a woman in a corset, and so on down the page.

Reloading the page -- once I had realized why at first it looked like every post was posted by the same person -- produced a pale green object I didn't have time to recognize because reloading again brought back the normal red gears.

Is it something I cached?

Seems like it was a brief glitch of some sort, either the BG server or your web browser at fault, but hard to say which... Undecided

The limited forum information I can view shows no errors listed under your username, but that doesn't mean it wasn't a server glitch - just that the forum software is creaking along as normal.

Keep an eye open for a re-occurrence of it, and try and grab a screen-shot* if you can.

*( PC, press "Print Screen / SysRq" key on keyboard, then "paste" into an image editor and save it to a file.
For Mac, Press Command+Shift+3 together. Find the screenshot as a .png file on your desktop.)

Otherwise, don't worry about it - it probably won't happen again, most likely just garbled data being displayed incorrectly by the browser. Smiley
