The Thin Red Line


#1

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?
#2

My best guess is “Your last visit.”

#3

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


#4

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


#5

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


#6

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.


#7

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.


#9

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?
#10

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


#11

It represented your last chance for redemption.

Oh well, too late now.


#12

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


#13

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…


#14

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


#15

IIRC, I saw it my mini tablet last night.
