Can you get rid of the "LOL, someone else posted while you were typing, so we won't actually post this even though you fucking hit 'Post!!!'" issue?  I tend to not notice the warning until I'm hitting Backspace to go back to the thread.  Which means I lose the contents of my post.

In ten years of posting stupid shit on the Internet, I've never been on a forum before where such a warning is implemented, and it's fucking annoying, especially in threads that tend to get lots of rapid-fire updates at the time of day you're posting.

That feature's actually been handy for me, but I can see how it'd get annoying in something like the P&G section.
Guys, this is getting creepy. Can we talk about cannibalism instead?

It can be turned off, in Look and Layout there's a checkbox that says "Don't warn on new replies made while posting." Check it, and problem solved.

So I know we went through a DNS and server change (or at least, i got that message earlier today).

Now the move broke my avatar - I reuploaded it - and introduced some bizarre ass characters in posts I've never seen before.

Yeah, I don’t know, either. I wonder if that is more evidence of my “upper class bubble…” 

I mean, I know that some of those are like for European languages, and I recognize the cent sign, but the order they're arranged in makes no logical sense, unless maybe they were created by corrupted/improperly read data or some shit.

My Scots-Gaelic is effed up after the maintenance too, apparently. And it isn't my computer's fault.

I had the same issue with my username and quote in my sig. Replacing the gibberish with the proper characters took care of it. This kind of stuff isn't uncommon when copying/moving files containing certain punctuation characters, and it's pretty easy to fix.

Yep. there we go. That should be better.

:U

Let me know of other issues.
You have made a place in my heart where I thought there was no room for anything else. You have made flowers grow where I cultivated dust and stones. Remember this, on this journey you insist on making. If you die, I will not survive you long. Dovie'andi se tovya sagain!



People so seldom say "I love you". And then it's either too late or love goes. So when I tell you I love you, It doesn't mean I know you'll never go, only that I wish you didn't have to.

ok why can't I get into the forum anymore? It goes to Mibbit instead of IRCChat and doesn't connect me to #fstdt...
"Sleep is for the weak

I do NOT have a dubious relationship to sleep. We had a perfectly ambicable seperation

Ask me about the knife in your back!

When I die, they should process my blood into an energy drink - it'll be called Vampiric, and one dose will cause diabetes... Also, you might see noises.
