:-(For me, I have yet to get the 'line' drawn emoticons to post as the yellow smilies and worse, they load onto the beginning of a post. Even the 'quoted' post. It will not move from there to where I want it, usually on the end.

Yes i see this every Day, the Forum Editor is full of Errors.
I Think here is no one Professional Programmer...

I agree that this current editor is a disaster; far and away the worst I have ever encountered.... and that is when working as intended. Its multiplicity of errors (on top!) are a disgrace.

It is symptomatic of what has happened to the whole website in its remodelling.

It has NOT been remodelled, it has been VANDALISED! Its integrated look has been destroyed, and its colour coordination has been screwed up. It is now an ugly mess, with some of the panels actually OVERLAPPING on some forums, the result of letting the child programmers out of their playpen too soon, I'm afraid.

(I don't want anybody to think I'm sitting on the fence about this.)


So why are SOME forums fine, fitting within the page limits correctly.... (??)...

... while others have much e-x-p-a-n-d-e-d topic heading lists, spilling rightwards to the point where they appear UNDER all the "Connect" stuff, and those other panels that are over there.... Because it is covered, I can't see the end of the end of the topic headings, let alone whomsoever it was that posted them.

Do you want a screen shot, Simon?

It happens that the missing wink is just another symptom. It is months now, and there is so much that is still wrong. NEW stuff goes wrong! Indeed, I could fill three sides of A4 with detailed listings of ALL the anomalous and infuriating behaviour of the forums, particularly this pig's breakfast of an editor...

... but why the hell should I? It is YOUR job to get it right..not my job to tell you what's wrong.

I am not just angry about what has been done to my favourite website. I am incandescent with rage!
