Sounds like you picked up someone else's cookie.

something goofy going on
the past day or so ...
when I click on my bookmark for the wall it opens up differently than normal - have to click on the little triangle to get the the list of threads on the wall. before the open list came up as default. that's not a biggie in itself but what is a pain is that the bookmarked threads are a whole different set than what I had bookmarked. as if I have someone else's list - or mine has been corrupted somehow.
my understanding is that these lists are transmitted via cookies. if this is a problem on my end and not something anyone else is experiencing, I might be able to play around with the Time Machine program on my mac and recover a cookie from the past, which would be a learning curve for me but probably worth it.
anyone else experiencing weird stuff at the site?
I liked my cookie better
how the heck would I get somebody else's cookie and who's got my cookie.
I'm generally quite fond of cookies but this sort is kind of mysterious for me ...0
Sometimes when you share
a hyperlink, you become a different person in the Eyes of The Wall....
It happens and seems creepy but is harmless. Dump (don't toss!) your cookies.

I hate starting over with an empty jar
trying to figure out how to recover my list of bookmarked threads if at all possible
and I confess to being a bit unclear about what constitutes "sharing a hyperlink" so I'm not sure what I did that might have caused this.
feeling a bit melancookie ...
If someone on the Wall
posts within a thread and links to a previous post, there's a good chance you'll get that person's cookie when you click on the link to see what they're talking about. Happens all the time.Retired and loving it.0
those bookmarks are gone once you clear the cookie. Sorry.Retired and loving it.0
I just used Mac's Time Machine backup system, and restored my cookie file from a couple days ago, and all is well.
like more than a few things in the hydronic world (and larger world!), I was able to get the results I wanted without truly understanding the territory in which I was operating ...
thanks, Dan (& Brad), for the prompt response. as always - this is such a user friendly, generous, & helpful site.
for any other Mac users dealing with this issue, the cookie file is at user/Library/Cookies, and with Time Machine, it is quite easy to recover an older version.
I went to clear out the cookies on my mac and was surprised to find only about six from "invision..." which I saved. I thought surely I'm going to loose a bunch of my bookmarks because there must be a cookie for each. But lo and behold all the bookmarks remained! Is this normal or a weird fluke?0
