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...icon_smile.gif

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.icon_smile.gif
