Ok I'm getting fed up of something enough that I actually feel like posting about it in here.

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).

laff...

I do tend to use Word for breaking up quotes in multiple posts and other general long posts, but it still seems like a drag on Peel that this happens. The other thing is on Word if you want to put speech marks in a post it looks like “this”, but if you use Peel it looks like "this". I prefer the way the speech marks look on Peel, but if I type it up in Word and use Copy & Paste it will paste Word's crappy ones, and if they are a long way down within the given post I then have those previously mentioned problems trying to fix it...

I also sometimes make mistakes bolding or making italic with the tags on Word which I won't pick up on until I post it on Peel, then to edit and correct it those problems come into play again...

That's why notepad is more efficient.  Also, with your original problems, you can use things like page down or end to jump to the end of the quick post box.

People keep accusing me of being Winna. Is there an SMF plugin that will stop this?

[-mArc-] : very minor feature request (the feature request thread was locked for spamming, this is the next best thing):

Could you fix the wikipeelia link on the main page to default to a new window/tab like, well, every other link on peel, rather than opening in the current as it does now? Thanks. Love, not-winna.

Sure there are ways around it, but fixing Peel would be the best cure...

Have you ever considered checking the length of strings used for the username when creating an account?  I think 17 characters seems to be the magic number before the username is long enough to break the page.... don't really know how you feel about this situation, just thought I'd mention it. smile

Everyone did notice the thread where every third post was from some new account whose name was breaking the page, if that's what you're asking. smile

That's true... personally I'd prefer just to forcing the users to have a certain length username; it looks cleaner that way.  17 characters may not be the actual number though, but it seems like the characters and spacing are equidistant.

Edit: I stand corrected; they are most certainly not a fixed width.... so it might depend if you have all caps or some such. hmpf

At least 17 joined characters, if you have multiple words it works, if I remember correctly.

there is no actual number. PEEL does not use fixed-width fonts.

Well, you have to either use a fixed number to restrict it though, or forced linebreak, no?

I guess forced linebreak would be the best way to go about it, yes.  However, it's more complicated than that, and you'd either just have to make up a number to linebreak it at or create an algorithm to guess the actual link of the name and where to cut it off at, which is overly complicated. hmpf

I guess forget I brought it up. roll eyes

Well, each of the characters have a fixed size, so you could calculate the size after each characters and have a algorithm if the checking if it's longer (in pixels) than it should be have a line-break before it.

Might be too complicated than it should be. Maybe the size of the characters can just somehow be automatically be resized once the name hits a certain length? I've seen that done on other boards.

the obvious solution is to switch peel to use fixedsys as it's only font.

When someone is banned why does it not show it next to their profile, or at least within their profile? Most forums do...

This happened to me when PEEL was glitching a few days ago, sometimes I'd quote someone, be in the middle of typing and then the quote would pop up again. hmpf

Me and SoS had dodgy connection to PEEL cause we're both in the North West and use Virgin, and we both got this multiple times:

I always get this white peel thing. But only for a few seconds before returning to normal, and it's just because of my crappy australian internet connection that it does take that long to load up a page normally.

I don't think it's a PEEL-specific thing though because I occasionally get it (and not just on PEEL, either) when my browser (Firefox 3.6.18) or my internet connection is running particularly slow.

Don't hate me, Trinity.  I'm just the messenger.

AARRRGGGHHHH that fucking quote thing just happened again. It did nothing, then I clicked it again and I saw one quote in the reply box and I replied with my bit and only saw the other one after I'd posted. My bit ended up halfway between. I'm getting really pissed off with it now mad...
