I've used almost every browser available to post on PEEL at some point or another, and I don't recall ever having an issue such as described.

I cannot reproduce the problem either. Could this be some addon acting up? If you are using Firefox, try starting it without addons (safe mode). Other browsers should have something similar.

I get it occuring on the computers at Uni... not at home. I think the computers at uni have a bajillion Firefox addons, so this makes sense.

I've noticed it.... before.  However, I don't know where... could have been IE at work...  and I don't have the means to reproduce it since I don't recall the specifics of how I did it when I did.  It hasn't been doing it to me lately, and I've extensively tested out that fact.

I use IE, a friend suggested Chrome but I just don't like it, and Firefox was being a bitch when I tried to download it last.  I did like FF in the past on the gf's computer, maybe I'll try that again.

Try Opera then, it works perfect with PEEL.

And it's pretty cheap.   Like $24.99 per month with promotional rebate.

I addressed a problem I have on here before but it was on the test thread so i guess it was rightfully ignored.

When I post a link with a description in it and press post, it goes like this

test]www.bash.org]test

by itself.

I always got to re-edit it. No matter what browser.  hmpf

It should be:
[*url=http://www.bash.org]www.bash.org[*/url]

Weird, Peel hates French Canada? Though it's the best Canada and the other Canada is hardly Canada.

No problem either?

Try copy&pasting what's in the code section to see if it works for you. If it does, I'll bet on you using some weird french accented variant for the ≖ or ⁆ or something.

I was just looking at the stats page on my profile, it says I created 74 topics and 17 polls. Is there a way to query these and show them as a link on the member's page? Like some how program it to find all topics started by said user, in much the same way it finds all posts by the user. I don't know though, I would have gotten a C in programming had it not been for the tremendous curve. I just thought it would be neat is all. smile

That looks like the problem. There is no ] to be added. Just the = right after the url part of the opening tag.

Yeah it will double link itself if you do it incorrectly and post it FYP. I wasn't paying attention and did that the other day by using [url] instead of [url=

I found some old PEELies threads (2005 2006) in Offtopic, is it possible to move them to somewhere in PEEL Vault or is that a no go?

I think we've asked marc for more than enough recently.... perhaps we could let him rest a while. 

You might be able to get an ubermod (Nixorbo or Tweek...) to move those threads if you really want I guess.

I was just making a note of it in case they didn't realize. I didn't know whether they wanted it all together or not, I only noticed because I was using them for my writing...but yes, you are right winna, he has stepped in tremendously for POTM of which we are all grateful. It doesn't mean we have to stop for good at future suggestions though tongue

It wasn't meant as a "complaint" but I didn't know what other thread it would be appropriate to put in in the Wish Void. My apologies to anyone who may have thought that. =/

Okay, what the hell? Can somebody please explain why I can only send a PM to five people at once, why I can only send ten an hour, and why I have to wait a minute in between sending each one? I'm not trying to spam anybody to death here, I just want to send a message to a few people in the Trading Card project.

If there's a way to lift the restrictions on my PM feature, I'd appreciate it. Of course, I'm guessing that only [-mArc-] even knows if it's possible. Much of PEEL 2 is a mystery. A deep and mysterious mystery.

Well, you may not be spamming, but others have in the past. However, I raised the limit of hourly messages a bit.

Why do you use peel like an instant messenger ?

Because sometimes people don't share their email address or IM details, don't have me on Facebook, don't come into the chatroom, and don't make it nice and easy for me to track down these details.

So the PEEL PM feature is a useful means of sending them a private message.

I'm not using PEEL like an instant messenger in these cases, more like a last-ditch effort at communication.

Here's my complaint:

If I said what FYP just said to TNUK, TNUK would come at me with a barrel of swear words and hurtful sayings. What's up with that?

Ok I'm getting fed up of something enough that I actually feel like posting about it in here. It may have come up before, but I'm getting sick of whenever I do a really long post, if I want to edit it and stuff it keep defaulting to the top of the box even if I'm trying to edit stuff which is way further down. If I want to highlight some text to either delete or copy and paste it, if that said text is a long way down outside of the viewable margins of the reply box then it often has a mind of its own and tries to highlight loads more text than I wanted to. It will only let me fully control the text that is within the viewable margins of the box...

If you want to add a word in or delete a typo and re-type it a long way down, then each letter you delete or type, instead of the reply box keeping your view at that part of the post it automatically keeps defaulting your view to the top of the post so you can't see what you are doing. You have to scroll down individually to each individual letter or type blind and hope it's ok, and then scroll down and check. It's fucking annoying and I'm sure it never used to be like this...

Another annoyance I have is when you quote a post that already contains multiple quotes outside of the viewable reply box margins. Your view of the post is always defaulted to the top of the first quote, not at the bottom where you actually want to type. This means you have to needlessly scroll down to the bottom which aside from being annoying can also create another error. I sometimes reply to a quote forgetting that there's another quote off-screen further down and then my new reply is sandwiched between other quotes and makes no sense. The whole post is a rambling screw up. Admittedly this other error is my one and I often sort this out before committing to reply (but not always), but it's as a result of it always defaulting to the top...

Is there any way some of this can be fixed?...

Firstly, I totally expected the thing you were getting fed up of to be SorynArkayn laff

Secondly, if you're making a longpost or a multiple quote post, use Notepad or Word to help you organise it. That's how I get around both those issues (which I have also noticed).
