Default Flaming torch vs non-flaming torch

I've noticed that under people's avatars there is a torch. For some (like me) it is lit, and for others it is not. What does this mean?

Move your mouse over it and voilŠ!

Thanks. With the browser I use I just get a blank box when I scroll over anything like that, so thanks for the spoiler explanation.

Now, what's the exclamation point in the triangle under your avatar?

It says "Report Bad Post", probably for stuff like spam, flaming, illegal activity, or evil-hate posts and such.

Not for use with poor spelling and grammar, though.

Ah, that would explain why everyone but me (when I look at it) has one. Obviously I wouldn't report myself.

Mozilla Firefox. I noticed ever since I switched to it that on some websites the pop-up boxes are blank, but I've been too lazy to try and figure out why. I'm sure it's just something in my settings that needs to be changed.

Katran,

Go to Tools and then go to Options and under Content make sure that Enable Javascript is checked. I unchecked mine and I couldn't see the box. Hopefully that helps.

that shouldn't be a javascript thing, I believe those are just standard alt attributes. weird that they don't show up.

I'm sure it's just some setting on my browser that I need to change, because if I use Internet Explorer everything works just fine (except that I get a ton of spyware and popups and adware that I don't get with Mozilla).

You certainly shouldn't be getting any of those at AG. Or did you just mean you get them in general when browsing with IE?

In general. I was getting viruses up the wazoo, along with the other things I mentioned. A couple of friends and family members who had Mozilla mentioned that they didn't have those problems, so I switched and it has been a lot better since.
