I cannot understand this hate for comic sans. It's just a typeface.
Some people. :roll:


The issue for me is that it was so overused during the early years of secondary school by everyone. I've never really thought it looked particularly great but seeing it now just reminds me of that time when two out of three kids were using it to try and make their work look more exciting somehow and I struggle to separate the typeface from those connotations of childhood/adolescent stupidity.



Not me I used chalk and a slate

Stop banning me dude.
Fuck sake.

I agree about being able to edit someone's profile. Important tool imo.

I would be nice but unfortunately the only way that can be done at the moment is to give the Mods access to the 'Manage Users' part of the admin control panel.

In there there are lots of scary tools and you could ban whole IP ranges and edit usernames and passwords very easily.
Not something I want to be giving out really. :eek:

I'll keep looking but for now as far as I can tell only I can edit peoples signatures/avatars/profiles.

Sorry.

was testing something, on the old forum banning someone deleted both avatar and signatures, now we'll have to manually do for offensive/spammy signatures by removing posts

change usernames?

oh pleasepleaseplease

we'd get bored of abusing the power relatively quickly...

Well if my knowledge of these sorts of forums is correct, you can just add Winston to your 'foe' list, then you don't have to see his signature or read any of his fascist propaganda. Two birds with one stone.

My brain sort of does that automatically whenever you mention the BBC or the Guardian.

I hope most of this lot get it out of their system soon. Like a bunch of fat kids in a chocolate shop right now.

After a couple of days I have dec ided that I don't really like the style of the new forum. .

The pale blue is a bit pale and the writing is too small.

The pages are not as clear as the previous version.

I know that old age and senility is creeping in before you say it.

I don't expect any changes-just giving my opinion.


For the text size thing, hold Ctrl and move the wheel on your mouse (if you have a wheely mouse).

When someone quotes a post, you can't click on the post quoted to go back and read what it was all about anymore.

It'll take a bit of getting used to but I reckon on the whole the new version's an improvement.

The answer to your question is 'yes', I know how you can 'multi-quote'.
