I first noticed it a day or two ago. I suspect it's new.

It's been there all along, as far as I know. Maybe it has to do with your privacy settings?

I haven't changed any settings. I first noticed the diagonal blue strip for the first time today, across the right upper corner of the pane.

AFAIK, that has been there all along. You have just not noticed it until now.

Looks like the "Last visit" information is now gone for everybody. I wonder why.

When you click on the person's name to look at their profile, it is there.

Ah. Perhaps I'm misremembering, but I thought it was in the data that appears alongside each post.

I think I finally figured out you can only delete your posting if it's the last one in the thread. Maybe this was obvious to others, but it was a mystery to me. You can of course edit a posting and delete all but one character.

AHA! That explains why I've occasionally seen "comment deleted" on other forums.

On this forum though, as a Moderator, I have a DELETE button for all posts, even yours! BWA-HA-HA!!!

What is the number of posts a new user must make before being able to attach a file? Or is it some other criterion besides number of postings? It would be useful to know this when trying to solve a new person's problem.
