Exactly

 

I don't know if that option is there any more but if you write directly in bbscript it will execute it.   

Quote

your text

x  without the x's

Edit: Can't write with the code showing instead of the box.

I was trying to split a quote in two in order to answer the questions separately.

But keeping the "StringJunky said:" part.

I don't know if there is a way to do it now but, in that case, I do it the way you have just done it there: Quote the whole post with the name in, then transfer sections into new quote boxes without the name header. I think it's clear who the  subsequent quotes are from.

You can also select some text in a post and then then a “Quote this” button should appear next to it. Clicking that copies the text into a quoted box in the reply

That should be quicker.

Nice. Thank you.

 

However I miss the ancient system.

There's nothing like getting older; preferring to tread the path well-trodden. :D

Progress is OK but I don't like when things are eliminated. Generally speaking.

What is going on with all of these people who have come on here in the last little while and changed/added their profile picture? They all seem to have joined several years ago, only were on the site for one or two days and made zero posts, but now they suddenly decided to show up and change/add their picture. Seems odd.

Without examples, it would be hard to comment

I just noticed the same. Example from "All Activity" tab:

Hovering over an example profile:

Speculation/Guess: Some kind of indexing job that is running, and (unintentionally) the entries end up in the activity flow?

That would be my guess. I had a look at a few of the accounts yesterday and they seem benign. Sometimes we do have spam accounts that registered years ago suddenly make an appearance, updating their profile with photos and spam links, but this does not seem to be the case here.

That would be my guess, too, since the software was recently updated. Things may have looked "updated" as a result. The members in question have not logged on recently.

Hello. I hope this is the right place for such questions. I logged on to correct a typo. But I am unable to edit the post in question. I don't know if this is because of my status as a newbie or if there is a limited window to do it. It might even be a browser issue for all I know. I don't even really care if nothing can be done about it (no use crying over spelled milk). I'm really just curious and this seemed like a chance to notch up another post.

Edit: It would seem there is a limited window to edit your posts. Mystery solved.
