Suddenly, I am not allowed to recommend a post.

I don't know what has happened. This has coincided with our computer screen suddenly flipping from white background with blue/black type to black background with yellow/white type. Suddenly, when I click on that little button to recommend a post, nothing happens.

4. I'd never tried it before so I just did.

When I clicked it the box turned yellow and the number inside was updated. Ive never really understood that function but it appears to work for me.

15. Maybe your computer?

Or cell phone, or however you access DU?

I, oddly enough, do this on a desktop computer, and I just don't have the problems I'm seeing reported here.

For what it's worth, I do have a cell phone. I make voice phone calls and text messages, and that's it. All of my actual internet activity occurs on a computer. Not sure if that matters.

25. Hey! I can recommend posts again! Thanks for your comfort, everyone!

And the background is white. I am not sure what happened. Apparently Microsoft Edge was fed up with our frequent use of the Google app. Or whatever it is called.

Again, thank you for all your messages of comfort and suggestion.

26. Huh. Seems I missed the whole episode.

Oh, well. Didn't really need that in my life anyway. I had an entertaining afternoon and early evening, killing time at ER. Fractured ribs, if you're curious. No reason you should be, really.

27. Oh, fractured ribs! You poor dear! Take it easy!

Just rest and do as little as possible. You have earned a good rest!
