Oh there is one minor issue. Flags take a long tome to show.

I get an immediate "received" but the result takes time.

But like I said, it's a minor issue for me, not being a serial flagger.

If that was true, you would not have been able to post.

Compulsive liar much?

My flags don't seem to appear. Just logged in and it worked, no second or third attempts needed.

The problem with some quotation marks (single and double) and em (maybe en also) bars disappearing persists when copying and pasting text from a website.

The quotation marks are the ones that slant differently for the opening and closing quote.

I had to log in twice. If it ever becomes too much hassle, I have have abandoned websites for less. I would miss some regular posters; but at the end my computer works for me.

With such a lack of a sense of humor, we can only conclude that Tremain is a bot.

Right. We don't work for computer! To hell with accessing the community I care about if it requires patience through technical issues.

Bye, dude.

if your days problems revolve around having to repeatedly log into a useless website, you might want to reevaluate your life plan

I still want a brightness knob. Some posters are very dim (witted).

Who is this poster "Retort" and what does he want?

(taken from very old Silicon Valley joke; "Who is this Dot Matrix, and what does she want?")

Glitch report:

Plonked posters show up in the "comments" thread but not, thankfully, in individual threads.

Background color is a hideous off-yellow color, and also racist.

When posting a thread I'll log in at the bottom of the page where you input title, link, and summary and have to redo log in info again on the "Publish" page.

The only thing I've noticed is, to echo Lamplighter... er, sorry, Fmr Pres Lamplighter... the double-hyphen long dash converts to quote marks.

Double hyphen and emojis don't work

I forgot: WIN10 64-bit, i7 CPU from 2014, with twin 2TB 7200 RPM internal drives, 2GB video card, and 32GB of DDR3 RAM. I don't mind the extra dance steps, so long as the problem is getting looked at!

It still takes me 2 log-ins to get in the site.

First login doesn't work most of the time and always have to re login when I leave the site (close tab). Before only had to do so if I closed chrome on my mobile.

i have to login in two times to actually log in

If your browser saves your login info, that nullifies the login issue..

Works fine in Firefox.

And Nulli, don't use Chrome - it's nothing but a surveillance device. Everything you do or say in it goes straight to Google. There's some good articles from tech sites on this, but you find them by googling. Try DuckDuckGo or maybe FrontPage.
