    I haven’t noticed that problem. I did notice a typographic issue, though, some of my posts prior to the switchover don’t display quote marks correctly, instead has garbage characters. (it’s correctable using Edit, though). I haven't checked if other people's pre-redesign posts are doing the same thing (maybe it's only visible to me, with my posts).

    Examples:
    I can’t ignore its “brand”….
    if we’re using distance from campus — Des Moines,….

    OK, I really was liking the new site and thought it was a good idea. But now I've noticed something and I'm not so sure anymore. Off to the right of the Recent Posts page is a Members Online Now section. At the bottom is a summary.

    Total: 514 (members: 86, guests: 409, robots: 19)

    What's the deal with these robots?? Are they self aware? Will they go all Terminator on us? Maybe it's best to shut this thing down before it's too late.

    Ha, I noticed your alt liked one of my posts. I was just coming here to say I was joking about getting Bawbie back but keeping you banned. I mean, we differ ideologically, but i don't dislike you!

    Also, if I really do have the power to ban people, tell me who to PM because I've got a short list.

    They've always been there, now we just know when they are there and how many are there.

    Even a moderator should pay a price for such a blatantly misogynistic post...jimlad

    Depends. It matters to me when a poster is making a point to seem especially intelligent or well-informed. Like when there's a twelve paragraph rant on "Paul Rhodes." Grammar and complete sentences are pretty much fading away. Obviously.

    I expect to be in the minority -- but I would really like to hide the avatars. I didn't find a setting for that.

    True. But most of the time when people point this stuff out, they are just trying to belittle someone or being arrogant.

    Possible bug: In Create New Thread, Preview option does not work. At least it didn't for me.
