    One request, one question:

    Request: In the thread paging display, could we change the background color of the current page number to be a little darker? I sometimes have trouble distinguishing the light blue from the light green.

    Question: I'm confused about how the "ignored member" stuff is supposed to work. Sometimes their posts are displayed, with a note saying "You are ignoring this member." Sometimes, their posts are hidden entirely. Most confusingly, if another poster quotes them in a response, the ignored member's quoted text often isn't displayed, making it unclear what the other poster is responding to.

    For the record, I would prefer the "you are ignoring this member" approach, where I can see that they posted, but not what they posted. And I think you have to display their text when it is quoted by other users.

    Thanks!

    I tested if members can see their infraction points and came up with nada. So the best way is, of course, to stay out of trouble. You are also welcome to contact a staff member, and we'll look it up for you for the time being.
    As for awards, I am not sure what you are looking for. Are you looking to see your likes?

    A Trophy is worth a brisket and brasket.

    Yonder is over hill, over dale, down the dusty trail... :)

    Actually I'm pretty sure he's referring to infractions. ;-)

    How do I resize a photo that I want to use? I tried to resize it, but it doesn't seem to have worked. It says it should be 200 x 200, and that's what I changed it to, but it is still too big to completely fit in the little avatar box.

    Something has been happening since we went to PF.com 2.0 - I'm noticing that other people are quoting posts in their own posts but there's no actual response of their own, as if the 10 character rule was suspended. Or they posted a picture and I'm sometimes unable to see it. For instance, I just ran across post 25 in THIS thread where yeah, he's quoting himself, but I can't see any response. And I've noticed this happening every so often.

    My question: HAS the 10 char rule been suspended, or do I need to change my settings so that I can see what he and others have posted? And if so, what settings do I change?

    I've seen this happen in various threads, too. The quote is okay, but there's no textual response included.

    I've seen it too.

    I usually find the reply IN the quoted comment.

    Methinks it's curser troubles.

    Just_a_Citizen: I thought about your answer so I just quoted you WITHOUT making any kind of response in return. I think that just answered my question. We can now simply post a quote and that's all. It used to be under PF.com 1.0 that you couldn't do that - but now we can, I guess. Possibly something for the mods to correct?

    Ahhhh... This I haven't seen.

    Tried to quote, & enter w/o adding a comment, & I got an error alert.


    Hummmmm.

    Maybe the problem is that we're all still learning the software (and with trump supporters that could go on for decades). Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Here's something I've done before: Started to post a reply to a previous comment, and I want to include a quote. But I like to move the closing quote tag down a line, or two, before writing my reply. In doing that, I've somehow put the cursor in front of the closing quote tag. If I hadn't caught my mistake, my response would have appeared within the quote I was trying to include with my reply. Hope that makes sense.

    To correct the error all I had to do was to click in the area following the closing quote tag, and write my reply as usual. Then the reply appeared in my post as it should have.

    Seems hit & or miss though. I'd quoted you in my last reply, & it didn't show, because there was no repy to my quoted comment.

    Yep. Stuart's troubles are a thing I'm just getting now though.

    Interesting...

    Hmm - just did it again though. All I did was hit the reply button on your post and hit enter. So it is some kind of bug. Or maybe a strange "feature" of XenForo, although darned if I can see the necessity for it.

    Not one I care to use again in the future - seems a bit odd to have gone this long without being detected though. *shrugs*
