Re: arrow symbol

if posta means hull then the arrow is where you place the slings when you lift the boat out of the water.

It means you are very special

If you mean the red and white triangle button it is a way you can report a post to the moderators. This is on all posts including your own.

Re: arrow symbol

If you mean the little arrow in
the square on the list of new
posts, it takes you to the posts
you have not yet read. I don't
see any other arrow.

Re: arrow symbol

I have 3 posts, including this one, and all have an arrow starting from the bottom left corner going towards the upper right and then going toward the lower right corner. All responses have been read .

Re: arrow symbol

I will see if any of the other moderators can come up with any ideas.

The only other thing I can suggest is to reset your cookies. This sometimes cures unusual behaviour, although this is more bizzare than most.

If anyone else has some insights feel free to suggest an answer.

What kind of computer are you using?

If Windows, hold down function (FN) key / tap screen Print Scr. Then save to a easily found folder.

Use the "attach files" section of additional options to post the image in your message.

I'm not sure I understand. Your description sounds like the arrow goes through the text of your post. Does this arrow only show up on your posts or posts of everyone? What device are you usin ? I commonly use an I-phone 5C and don't see this type of behavior.

The more info, the better the chance of a solution.

Edit: I just looked at your prior posts and all seems normal. This suggests the problem is with your device.

Re: arrow symbol

I am using an android phone. When I click on a forum topic a list of everyone's post come up. Some have opened envelopes, closed envelopes, an envelope with a lock on it, and mine with the arrow on it.
