Yes, I am this stupid. At the top of the screen is a read square box with a number in it next to my name. What does this mean? It seems to have no association with "likes" or personal messages.

It means you have been squared.

The red box is also known as "The Eye". It means that the Allnurses Collective can see what you're doing in your home.

(You did NOT hear it from me, if anyone asks)

Lol. It has been my experience that when I see a number next to my name not associated with a like or a PM, there is usually a new announcement from AN.

I figured if out! Now my little red box is gone. This now frees me up to ponder more of life's little mysteries

Vanilla Bean gets the good citizen award for actually answering the question and for being my favorite ice cream flavor.

That's because backs stop at the belt.

Another mystery to ponder. When I go on-line at work the little red box is a little red circle.
