    Not showing for me.

    From memory, when the post somehow moves on to the Grabbit board, you have the option to click "expired" so that it can be transferred over the the "It's gone but was it any good" sub-board.

    tweets, don't worry about it. Usually only shows on boards that are for deals or offers but due to the quirks of the ancient and creaky vBulletin software it doesn't always show or indeed show for everyone.

    Also, although I can't verify this as I'm on the old green version, it may show (or perhaps not) for those on the new blue version.

    If the button is pressed enough times it lets the mods know a deal has expired. But nothing actually happens to the thread automatically, it needs human intervention at that point. It's really not important and certainly not worth you worrying about. Just ignore it

    Don't have User CP (top of Page)

    I have Top of Page - Profile
    Then Your settings on right under Advanced Search
    Then Your Profile List on Left
    Bottom Option - Forum Versions Manager
    Then Manage Version
    Choice of New Version or Old Version

    But I can't see any difference, it's still Blue on the Old Version.
    Don't know what I am doing wrong?

    Don't have a green bar. but as above, have found Manage Version.
    But both the Old and New, which are the only choices are blue, not the old green.?
    I am now on the Old Version, but still looks the same.
