Yeah, that happens, and I think it's just going to be one of those hiccups of being small enough as to not be paying for Multi-Million-Dollar Internet Serverces.

Theoretically the recent update was supposed to fix that, but it might have also needed an additional recount run. I've run the thing, so if it keeps happening, let me know.

I turned it off because Mafia was getting bugged by it. Decisions about more permanent off-or-on-ness of it will be made later.

At the time you posted this, the forum still showed this thread as having 203 replies, and your post is #203. That suggests the bug is still going to happen.

This usertitle is 29 characters long, less than the assumed 30 limit. However, it looks like at around 25 characters in length, the title wraps around onto the second line, which is within the avatar field.

It looks fine to me; I think it may just be a function of browser resolution on your end.

For what it's worth, I'm seeing the wraparound thing too.

Recording an image of it. The bug isn't as much the fact that it wraps as the fact that it overlaps within the avatar.

It might be something to do with the fact that, for some reason, some posts have a wider user details field than others, sometimes on the same page.

Example: Dragon Fogel's last post and Kieros' after it.

I still have no idea why that happens.

E: Of course, right after writing this, I finally realize why. (It's the date).

So, I'm not sure what's going on, but inkWanderer is having problems posting. I keep seeing his posts with the words "undefined" on it, and I'm not sure what that means. I've contacted him through Reddit and he is equally confused.

Here they are:

I'm sure this is a bug for exactly no one, but whenever I use internet explorer from my school's computer, the advanced reply screen appears unaligned.

Mainly, the smilies box floats into the message box, and the message box extends down past its border.

RE: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
I'm not positive, but I think you may find that that goes away with a wider window. (The only way I've found to replicate it, at any rate, is to have a less-wide window.)

Anyway, that'll be dealt with as part of the next thing I'm aiming to work on, which is an overhaul of the theme that'll fix a bunch of table bugs, clean some things up, and generally make things look nicer.

RE: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
Not sure if this is a bug or a feature, but my settings screen repeatedly tells me the threads I'm subscribed to have new posts in them, I go to look, and there's no new post: just the same last page dated from 3 days ago or a week ago or whatever.
I believe they also get bumped in the forum index when this happens.
Is it something intentional about subscriptions or people editing old posts, or is it a bug?

I'll screencap this next time I see it come up

When editing the main post of the topic, the character limit for the title is 85. When replying, the character limit for the response should be 89 to allow the presence of the string "RE: " or the string shouldn't be editable.

RE: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
I've seen some forums where if you edit a post within, say, a minute of originally posting it, no notification of editing shows up. Would that be possible to do here?

RE: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
MyBB doesn't appear to have that functionality built in by default, but it looks like it should be something that can be added in. I'll take a more detailed look later and see whether it's doable.

Changelog:

User Control Panel (Edit Profile) and User Profiles now have a Pronouns field under Additional Information. I'd like people to avoid using it to make tasteless jokes, so the character limit is on the short side, but anyone's welcome to petition me via PM if their needs aren't being met.

The names of the various fields under Contact Information have had their names changed, but this is purely cosmetic. The links don't work and ICQ only accepts numerals, so that's "favourite number" in the interim. I can't actually add or remove any either, but hopefully this proves useful to people.

RE: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
I figured the linking would be the tricky part.

(mainly posting this because of the "hey look, the thread's not counting the posts properly and it's showing an extra page that doesn't exist" bug)

RE: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
Straight answer: No, because I can only tweak things which are prepackaged in the Admin Control Panel, and the layout of the advanced text edit box isn't there.

Pines can do it, given the time, but he hasn't had the availability and energy to be around as much as I'd (and, I hopessume, he'd) like.

There's odds and ends all over the forum which need a good looking-into, and I'd only consider bringing on someone else to look under the hood if Pines himself suggested it.

I'm pretty tired from car school, so apologies if that came off more snippy/tyrannical than intended. That's about the honest where we're at for all "how's progress on X" queries.
