This is just a test post to see if my new addition to the message boards works. When there is a fresh post in the helpdesk area it is flagged in the discussion. area.

And if we leave it alone for 3 days that message will disappear. It's only to flag new postings in the low traffic area, which I often forget to check.

I noticed it immediately (or maybe 5 seconds later). I'd recommend this to all Boinc projects.

But I also noticed some optical changes on the front page - some text lines are overlapping each other, see the News column and POTD above too.

Thanks. I know some projects have abandoned this format, and that may or may not be the right thing for them, but this at least helps keep that area from being neglected.

Indeed. I adjusted the CSS for the listings on the front page and this seems to be a consequence. I will adjust it so that it works for both.

As always, thanks for the sharp eyes.

Seems to be all-right now, sir! But the other project's status map is gone :-( How can I find the treasure now?
