Searched but found no threads on this.

Wondering what the 1x1 white pixel is for?

I'm not seeing one on my screen.
I tried it logged in, logged out, home page, new page.
No dot for me.

Now I want one.

You may need to clean your screen because I don't have the dot.

Dead pixel on your screen?
I don't have this white dot you speak of.

I would say it's a dead pixel in your LCD. Pay attention to that spot on other websites. If it's there on other dark backgrounds, you have a dead pixel.

You don't have to worry about one dot.

Its when you get three that you explode in a flash of blinding white light.

Not a dead pixel. Shows up on different screens. It's at the bottom of this forum screen, on the left and not at the top.

Some forum screens have it some don't.

Yeah not a dead pixel if you have managed to print screen it like in the top image you posted

I don't know what it is though. I don't see it

I don't see a dot, but I do have a number at the top left of the screen. Apparently I've been branded?

Yeah, I had a DUH! moment. Dead pixels won't screen print as Davespanners said. Interesting quirk though. Now you've got me looking on pages to see if a dot is there. LOL.

Most likely a Google Analytics Pixel Tag... But they're supposed to be transparent.


Google Analytics works by the inclusion of a block of JavaScript code on pages in your website. When visitors to your website view a page, this JavaScript code references a JavaScript file which then executes the tracking operation for Analytics. The tracking operation retrieves data about the page request through various means and sends this information to the Analytics server via a list of parameters attached to a single-pixel image request.





var _gaq = _gaq || [];
_gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-475284-1']);
_gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);
() [
var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/_javascript'; ga.async = true;
ga_ = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
])();

Seems to be the likely explanation. Thanks.
