What is that little speck for, above the Terms and Rules box?

I keep trying to wipe it away!

What speck? Cant see anything on my screen that I would call that. Are you using PC/Mac/tablet/phone?

That little cursor is where the Face Ache and Donalds Twitter , printer and other garbage all contained in a panel appears. When it is loaded it hides the dot.

If you have the dot there you can use White Out, it works well but has to be reapplied if scrolling. Blue white out is a nice look, like on Legal papers.

I have a touch screen. When I brush the whiteout onto the screen where the dot is, the whole page scrolls down or up.

Can you get white out specially for touch screens?

Wrong sort of brush I suppose, maybe a brush for scrolls would be ok.

Not above as you initially described but on the top right side - anyway... as RMD points out it is where the long series of social media icons will appear once loaded.

You must have slow internet.... or something - never seen the phenomena myself.

So the icons never load ? Strange - what browser are you using?

I have Firefox.
The adblocker could be on....I will have to try and find out where that switch is.

The Popular Content box doesn't load either, so that's probably the reason.

Thanks for the heads up.

Have you got an an ad blocker active, my screen is same as yours with the dot, pretty sure the ad blocker stops the icons.
