For the past 5 days or so, I've been trying -to no avail- to update my current availability. Doesn't seem to make any difference whether I try to do this via my profile page (which I can open just fine, thus I didn't want to post this under that topic...) or directly in the "User Info" box that appears in the top left corner on every page.

Whenever I click on that little radio button (currently grey since I can't set availability...), IE displays a message "Error on page" in the status bar at the bottom.

It was working fine the last time I updated (which would have been around 2/26 or so), but ever since that setting expired and the button turned back to grey, I haven't been able to reset my availability.

Surely I'm not the only one this is happening to?

Bashful pop-up window? Mar 9, 2006

Sometimes those little pop-up windows hide behind other windows open on the screen. Maybe you can "catch" it if you minimize all your other open windows.

That doesn't seem to help, I still get that yellow triangle with the exclamation point and "Error on page". When I move the pointer away from the radio button, the yellow triangle stays, and it says "Done". Except that nothing got done...

Cookies Mar 9, 2006

Have you tried deleting your cookes? Usually that helps.

Cookies!!! Mar 9, 2006

It took a couple of tries, but that seems to have done the trick.
Thanks so much for reminding me -- I always forget that deleting cookies every once in a while is a good thing.
