    If you can't unlock your threads yourself, shoot @mavjade or @Briannakin a PM. They ought to be able to unlock them for you.

    Thank You for the update. Though it will probably take me a while to get used to it. [face_hypnotized] :p

    There is currently an issue with users being able to edit locked threads (something that users could do pre-update). I'm hoping it will be fixed but yes, we will unlock threads if PMed a link.

    I had the thing again where it's just me and an empty page. This time it let me see the previous page. So I went back to the last page and posted and the res of the posts for that page showed up above it.

    I have just noticed that a stretch of a fic that was making use of the highlight BBCode (eg. hl=something) has the code exposed, and cannot see where the BBCode advice link now is, to see what has changed.

    @Grahame - got another spammer in the queue for deletion testing.

    I've been trying to update the prefixes on various threads in fanfic resource; I select the prefix I want and I click "save changes" but when I try to filter by prefix it's still not working. Am I missing something? (If it's of any use, the prefixes I tried were "index" and "challenge" on the latest version of Firefox.)

    Last I heard on this was that Grimby was going to contact the developer about the prefix add-on. Grahame ran a rebuild job yesterday but that didn't work. Single prefixes work fine if the multi option is disabled.

    Everybody is just repeating the questions which were already asked. I am glad I don't work here - my own clients and site visitors are enough of a punishment for having never completed my BA.

    Just to clarify @LAJ_FETT does this mean that we can't update prefixes in fanfic for the time being since fanfic is using the multi option? (That's what it looks like after I also tried on one of my story threads; I just want to make sure I understand you right because I'm a bit slow on the uptake.)

    I'd just leave the prefixes be until we get a resolution on the issue.

    Hey, @Grimby and @Grahame - since there has been a misunderstanding just now, and since @jcgoble3 and I keep on repeating the same things over and over again, I was wondering if there could be a list of current issues and the resolved ones, just so nobody would think that the nerds web devs are being "snappy". Thanks. :)

    Yes, please. I suggested that back on page 5, but haven't gotten a response to it yet. Here's my post again:

    I'm not sure where to ask this...

    Is there ever a chance more of the emojis from the Star Wars app will be added?

    I'm not sure if it just got tucked away into a different place, or was part of a previously announced change and I just never noticed/heard about it, but our profiles used to have a public listing of previous usernames. That appears to no longer be the case.

    The thing @Sith-I-5 noticed earlier, here's a demonstration - the quoted part of somebody else's post remains in the post box after I've already responded.

    @Ewok Poet - on this occasion, your assumption that my "saved drafts" enquiry, which was answered BTW, related to your error, is incorrect.

    I believe that this has been asked earlier but it hasn't been answered as far as I can tell: is the highlight feature disabled, or has it been replaced by something else? (the {hl=colour}blahblahblah{/hl} thingy)

    I just want to take a moment and say: I LOVE this sleek new format!!

    As a side note, for years I was having a problem before with quoting others posts and having them automatically show up copied on my post. That all works perfectly now.

    Thanks for the effort!

    Found another odd error: I can't copy and paste links and other formatted text, which is handy for posts with heaps of BBCode and repeated content.

    I found an error. When I post I get this error:
    The following error occurred:
    You must wait at least 30 seconds before performing this action
    This happens even when I haven`t posted for awhile.
