OK, I give

What does this mean?!!!!

"You can't request more than 20 challenges without solving them. Your previous challenges were flushed."

It appears at the top of the page every once in awhile and I have no idea why.

I get that a lot too- no clue what it means.

It's a scarry Big Brother kind of thing.

I agree. The first time it popped up I nearly ran to hide in the corner, scared that the computer was going to wipe everything I'd written. Luckily, I figured out it was harmless. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

I get that too... who knows? Such a mystery. I just ignore it, but like you... I've always wondered what it was.

it means you've read 20 items since the last time you posted or captcha reset your counter.

Where do I get a counter- can I use it for counting rows as well?

I think that "challenges were flushed" is a very curious locution, indeed. Flushed as in "toilet" or flushed as in poker? Very, very curious altogether! And what exactly was the challenge? The addition problem? Does the fact that they were "flushed" mean that there's going to be harder math questions coming up because all the easy ones have been flushed?
