  2. A 'trackback' is a link to another web page. It comes with a 'pingback' so that the link is reciprocated.

    I have used one here so that we can see what it does.
  3. I think Bad CO has been doing a bit of tidying up in order to allow people to see the answers to questions about the new format.

    Anyway, I put a trackback link to the last post of the lalalalalalalala thread. I can't see any sign of it on here. I can't see any sign of it when I go to 'Edit' on my post above, I can't see any sign of it on your lalalalalalalalalalast post. I think it is either
    a) A feature which is unnecessary, or
    b) broked.
  4. Why do I permanently have my message notification light lit telling me I have three unread messages? I have marked them as read but to no avail.

  5. Check your outbox to see if there are any messages you have sent which are marked as unread, and 'read' them if they are.
