I thought it had been fixed. I've noticed lately my preferences usually stay the same after selected. It occasionally reverts back to default but I haven't quite figured out why or when it's doing it. I think it may be when I open a fresh SH window (one not opened automatically from a previous selection on a SH page).
I stopped typing and went and tested the above by opening a new SH window, selecting my preferences (fresh window reverts to default), clicking on a contest, then clicking on "active contests" to see if my preferences stuck...and they did.
Not sure why it's not staying selected for you??
What is everyone else experiencing? Are your preferences sticking or are you constantly re-selecting them?
