Finally got it to show up. No scripts that impacted the forum, but I turned them all off anyway. Restarted Chrome. Restarted the computer. Did a force reload with the keyboard. Did a force reload from the menu bar. Did a right click and selected "Reload" from the context menu. Did a right click and selected "Reload" from the context menu while holding shift --- and we have a winner!
No idea if that last method was the key or if it just requires you to force reload over and over.
For me it seems that it just took a long time to display the little graphic.
On the main pages of the forum, where it has the Thank you lists and the little stars next to them, I couldn't see the stars either until the thumbsup appeared. I thought maybe the Cleaner Forum script or Adblock was keeping them from loading, but it wasn't.
