Oh yeah, I too have experienced that glitch.

Well since the message alert is a intermittant issue, so it shouldn't be that easy to pin down.

While the big post being a constant it should be pretty easy to spot and fix, not to mention it ruins the whole page so it's more pressing.


So I'm thinking he means the big post.

It's not intermittent. The way the blog portion is coded versus the forums makes it difficult. If you get a new message, go to the blog or non-forum pages and you will see it's not red. It's difficult to fix. I will take another go at it later.

Oh sorry I was thinking of a different glitch, one time I got a new message and it didn't say there was one new message, even after I checked the page without reading the message.

Given that it only really happened once and all other messages were sucessful I assumed it was just one of those weird things.

I assumed it was a intermittent problem when I thought Hazard said he experienced the same issue.

Okay, I've done a bunch of things, and finished profiles (for now).

Stuff left to do that I may or may not get to tonight:
- Check out why long, non-broken words completely break the page. Easy fix, I'm sure. [Okay, not so easy fix. Will look at this later. It's not a huge deal.]
- Add rank title to profile. (The call for it is not working on the profile page, very odd. So in the meantime, everyone's says "Member".)
- Possibly add spoiler to format tips. Not sure if necessary.
- Move the naughtybox (uh, report box) items to other places. I'll probably make a big red "Report" button next to Edit, or on the left. I plan to remove all the other buttons on the left side of the post option bar.
- Maybe change the magnifying icon because Hazard is a spaz.
- Remove report button from admin/mod/staff posts. Because we're power-hungry dictator-maniacs or something like that.

Anything I miss on this list?

*Reports Zag before it's too late*

Lol, I'm so getting banned.

On the topic of being banned, there should probably be a "Flaming" option under report.
Profiles should probably have a dedicated space for a signature. (Maybe under achieveables?)
AND the report box is still in our posts.
(You know, the box you used to put the report button in.)

- Report will eventually be a dropdown with 3 options or so.
Something like "Spam" "Trolling" "Harassment"

- Profiles DO have a dedicated space for signature. It's not like that area is being used for anything else. Otherwise I'll just throw it on the very bottom of the page, but I don't think people would appreciate that.

- Press F5, just in case. That shouldn't show up, but I will fix up the other left-over issues in a bit.

- Oh right, cool.

- What I meant was that it's a little off on some cases, on IE at least it's hugging the wall and on WaddleSticks's profile it's being devoured by the section underneath.

- Oh yeah, you fixed it.

Sounds like an issue with IE. Never had a problem with IE before!

I'll fix that in a bit.

Edit: Should be pretty much fixed.

It also gets devoured on Chrome but does not have the wall issue.

The site also looks much sexier in Chrome.

Issue should be mostly fixed now. Press F5 on the page.

My primary browser is Chrome, and my secondary suggestion would be Firefox.

I would never recommend anyone use IE, ever. Horrible, awful life decision, that is.

Well it's not hugging the wall and now I can see the "signature.gif" thing but the profile is still eating the text.

New IE problem, Previous posts is really long.
I also like the report icon, nice touch.

Good enough for now. Looking into the new previous post explosion. :)

Mmm, bugs. And then I'll go back to that list I posted a little while ago.

I was just going to suggest that you up the avatar size from 90x90 to 100x100 so I could finally use my main avatar, but screw it. I'm just gonna resize it.

Works on Chrome, still off on IE though.
And they lost their nice shiny graphic. :(

Oh, quick suggestion.
After going on Chrome and seeing what this site should be like, I noticed the quote boxes and they started to hurt my eyes.
(Not literally, they're just really annoying.)
Could you make it so quote boxes are either darker or the same color as normal member's posts?
