    Whenever someone posts, there is a little colored ball and a red & white triangle in the bottom of the left side column. What is this and why do different people have different colored balls? I never really noticed this until now & now I'm curious. Thanks!

    I believe that it indicates whether the person is currently on line or not. If the ball is green, that means the person is on line.

    Green ball= online :thumbsup2

    Caution red and white triangle= what you click if you need to report that post- a personal attack, vulgar language, inappropriate link, etc.

    HTH!
