    Grayed out icons after using iOS app


    I recently noticed an issue after installing the iOS app on my iPhone. Today I installed the app on my phone from the App Store while I was away from my computer. After using the app for a few minutes I logged out. Once I got back home to my computer I logged in as usual and noticed many of the icons were grayed out. This happened to me a few weeks ago also but I didn't think the app was at fault. Now this has happened again and the only thing thats changed was me using the app. Below is a screenshot..

    I thought by deleting the App & clearing the cache on my computer it might fix this. It hasn't.

    Update: This is a confirmed issue. Immediately after logging in to the iOS App I signed in from my computer and every single icon is faded.

    Thanks for the reply John. That makes sense because I did mark all unread threads as read. I just find it odd that the icons would loose color like that. It makes me think I'm using BBS again.

    It's because I made them like that so you can tell if a section is read

Hello all, for a'while I had been wondering why there were so many grayed out and seemingly out of place drivers on my laptop.

Under internet options>privacy>location, I can't select never allow websites to use your location. I assume because windows 8 has location services(in my case I think they are turned off) this is why I can't select this option. Does this sound correct to you all?
