    the little dot that appears in the envelope next to threads you've posted in so you know you've posted in that thread. [​IMG]

    Heh, I've noticed that was gone as well. One day I went to check a thread that I posted in, to see if anyone responded to me, and I didn't see the black dot showing I posted, so I was like, "wtf? Did my post not go through yesterday?"

    I don't understand the point of taking it down in the first place. It's not like that little dot causes the server failures. [​IMG]

    They always remove random aspects of the site in order to speed it up during releases of popular games. However, I do hope they return this feature as it is very useful.

    It's not just a dot...

    beyond the simple dot you should know that we have a huge database.
    For each topic this dot will be displayed only if you have posted in the topic.
    Which means for each topic in the listing, the website will have to answer this additional "question" : have I posted in this topic?
    all in all removing small tasks can lighten the server load a bit and allow a little more users to browse the website.
