    Forum Weird Stuff

    The forum is not remembering that I have collapsed some forum sections (Announcements, Feedback, Help and Contests; the Vendor forum, and Off Topic) and I don't think it's automerging double posts either.

    Has anything changed behind the scenes? Is the forum "off" for anyone else? The trouble started for me yesterday.

    It is also not merging my double posts and I noticed it did this for someone else recently too.

    Automerge was changed to 2 minutes between posts (it was 360 minutes).

    Forum's doing some funky stuff for me too- like it let me post to a thread that was visible on the right-hand side (where the newest thread in each section is), but then that thread doesn't even exist when I click through to the forum (and it hasn't been deleted by a mod, someone else posted to it after I saw it was invisible).
    A few other threads are coming up "not found"

    If you post on a thread and post again to the same thread within 2 minutes (and nobody else posts to that same thread in those two minutes) your two posts will automatically be merged into one.

    And it will look like this.

    Oh, thanks

    Just curious, why was it changed? I don't mind, I can edit my posts like anyone else, but what caused the change?

    People were complaining about it.

    I don't know why.

    Re: Forum Weird Stuff

    Hmm, that's curious, I actually kind of liked the double post merge. *enter shrug smiley here* I guess if that's what they people want...

    Speaking of smileys, I am upset we have this smiley which I can never see using, but we don't have the shrug smiley.



    ^not spamming I am just showing other smileys that we could potentially replace with the shrug smiley. When would I ever use theses? And the dead horse one is just brutal, I see blood!

    Re: Forum Weird Stuff

    I guess I can only have ten in a post, so here is some more we could potentially replace with the shrug smiley, and this set includes the dead horse.



    There are others, but I don't want to spam up anything. *I would enter a smiley, but I am at my maximum.*

    What I think is curious is that anyone actually worries about smilies.

    You're not alone there. There was a lot of discussion about smilies - which is how we ended up with the ones we have.

    eh, I like to use a well placed smiley sometimes, I think it clears up any confusion in intent sometimes.

    Yeah I think everyone was - The forum could have been doing some maintenance or something, but I don't know. I just know a lot of forums go down when they do maintenance.
