• Most people probably don't realise this, but this forum has had two editors for a number of years. One is the xenForo default editor, and the other is a custom editor I made years back I called BBCEd.

    All the settings for which editor you use was lost during the upgrade. You can find the setting under Account Settings > Preferences > Editor.

  • I've had it made known to me that for about a week now people haven't been able to finish registering or receive email notifications. I can imagine how frustrating this must have been, particulary for our newest members. Unfortunately our site owner is away at the moment and he most likely won't be able to do anything about it for another week or so. Until then, anyone who wants their account manually verified can contact me via their method of preference and I'll sort it for them myself. Thanks to everyone for their patience regarding this issue. -DoubleThink

  • Emails should hopefully be fixed, please let us know if they're working properly now.

It would be nice if, when you get banned, there were something that told you specifically why you got banned, rather than just a vague reason like "spamming" (i.e. show exactly which post is was that was considered spam). Because when I logged on two days ago, it's all like "you're banned for spamming" and I'm all like "WTF are they talking about!? I didn't spam!" and I then logged out and spent the next 10 minutes combing through the forums in search of any clue as to what exactly I had done that andwhy, in all his infinite wisdom, had deemed spamming.

I did eventually find the post in question, and I'm still totally baffled as to what makes it spam. For those of you who are curious...

Cheddar is awesome btw.
Quoted for truth
First of all, yes the post was off topic, but the rules clearly state:

The Rules said:
7. Offtopic can be tolerated as long as it follows the flow of conversation, if it doesn't get out of control and goes back ontopic at the request of the thread starter, moderator, or admin.
And if you look at the thread in question, the off topic discussion clearly did follow the flow of conversation, it wasn't just a bunch of random unrelated posts. Plus, I was not the only one participating in the off topic discussion, and yet somehow I was the only one who got banned. If anyone can explain to me how that makes any logical sense whatsoever, I'd love to hear it.

One-liners are not allowed.
I can understand, that banning without a proper warning isn't nice, but if you want to complain then contact the specific adminstrator.
