    According to what is set in the Admin Control Panel, drafts are saved every 60 seconds and stored for 24 hours. Don't ask me about retrieving them though - it's not a feature I've used.

    Hello, I'm new and I've been trying to read fanfiction but the stories are all cut by an ">". Is there a limit to the number of signs in a post? And if yes how can I change it?
    Thanks a lot

    When boards transferred servers several years back some of the fictions were lost to the wicked web and truncated posts created a void where by many fictions were 'broken' or 'lost' sadly. Members were asked to back up their own work before we moved, many who'd moved on did not and sadly their masterpieces were affected.

    As far as I know, yes. But you can't add it by hitting "+quote" below ones post. You need to do it by the format bar or by hand (typing in the needed coding).

    Edit1-3: If you want to test all possible markup codes, feel free to use the markup code thread. It's there for exactly that reason. You can't make a mistake there. You can find it in the header of WNU or as stickied thread. :)

    You see? It works. :)

    Umm. All the participants suddenly disappeared from my conversations and I'm unable to reply in PM. However, I am able to start new conversations... in which I can't send further messages.

    Admin have been alerted, you're not alone on this one and the big red and black message has been copied and sent as well, so we await Admin repairs now. ;)

    @Adalia-Durron @Bazinga'd

    Do you automatically get logged off if you haven't "been seen" for a certain amount of time? Just curious ;)

    What do you mean “been seen”? If you are logged in and are inactive for a certain period of time, you are logged off.

    Yeah, that's what I mean. You know, when you click someone's name, and it says "Last seen...". Anyways, thanks :)

    It's about 15 or so mins from the last time you 'clicked' on a thread/group/forum. You can usually tell if someone has gone by how their image (if you are watching them) slide down the list. Pretty well means they are in active now. After the allotted time they just disappear. ;)

    The phrase was "Go to Hell, Tony" which started out as a joke, and it caught on for a bit there. I didn't take it seriously as most of the people saying it have the rapport of being a jokester and were people that I've known for years on the board. Maybe some were being serious, at this point, it's difficult to discern which so I've just let it slide like water off a duck's back. It has seem to waned so that's good.

    That's right, sorry, I just did notice a theme and wondered what you'd done to earn that kind of abuse. :p

    Not a question, but it might be helpful to someone.

    Newer posts display the day and time stamp (ex. Friday at 8:01 AM), and older posts the month, date, and year (ex. Aug 28 2018). But if you hover your mouse over the date of an older post, it'll give the time stamp.

    Hi all!
    I was a Fan Fiction reader on the Boards ‘way-back-when’ in 2002 and 2003. I’m trying to re-read some stories I enjoyed on the new Classic boards and most are cut off. Are you kidding me? All this amazing writing is gone! Are there any updates on if that will ever get fixed? Such a shame for all those great stories to be lost! Please give us a status update for forces sake
