The Thin Red Line


Just curious: anyone know what the red horizontal rule in topics lists means?

(For example, here, between “Misandry for fun…” and “Discourse User…”)

What's this thing?

My best guess is “Your last visit.”

What's this thing?

I’d buy that for a dollar! Seems to square with when I think I was on the BBS last.


Oh, good, it’s not just my browser freaking out. I was wondering what was going on.


Interestingly enough, this is the first time I’ve actually seen it:


I’ve seen it for several days, but I’m not sure it has to do with last visit.

ETA: I noticed that my line is after the 10-hr mark, but before the 12-hr marked post.


Same here for both those thoughts.

Right now, after refreshing, mine is between 6hr and 7hr.

But this morning it was between 10hr and 11hr, but I had been last on about 2-1/2 hours previous to that.


Could be blood poisoning… Make sure that your antivirus is up to date.


Excellent guess :slight_smile:

I do want to get some text there overlaid on the line but it is a huge pain to get it positioned correctly.

What's this thing?

That’d be helpful! I just noticed the line for the first time today and wondered what it represented.


It represented your last chance for redemption.

Oh well, too late now.


When life’s cursor passes you by, you realize that you’re just a supporting character (at best) in somebody else’s movie.


The line has words now, it just took a bit to get the correct CSS incantations in place. Not sure if it has deployed here yet though. If not…


Seems to be there for me, both mobile and PC versions.


IIRC, I saw it my mini tablet last night.
