    Is this the way it'll be from here on?

    Erm....

    I'm afraid I'm confused. How did you get to this point? Were you multi-quoting or doing something else?

      test. Okay, now it's working normal. Nevermind. That's what I get for talking to myself in a thread.

        I've noticed if I reply to a thread, hiot "submit reply", my post is there. If I intiate a totally new "reply to thread" before anyone else does then my next posting is added to my last posting with the faint lines between.

          That's the fancy new Anti-Post-Whoring 3.6 hack.


          I'm teasing, but that is how the vBulletin boards at vBulletin have worked for years, so I kinda suspect they've incorporated it into this version. If it really bothers folks, I'll see if I can turn it off.

            The only place it was bugging me was when I put up the Africa thread. A whole crapload of pictures ended up in one post because they got combined. If I were trying to deliberately separate them by content or location I would not have had the option.

              A suggestion, for everyone, particularly since we're doing a picture forum now, and because you and scott and Billy and others have such great pix:

              I'd like everyone to consider using their photo album. I personally have not played with it, but with the new server, we have unlimited storage space, and we were never even remotely close to our limit before. It's not like it costs any more to use this: it's already paid for. I think I set the limit for people at 1000 pictures or something like that.

              Seems like a good way to share pictures, and I think people can even set their own "permissions" on their pictures, so if anyone doesn't want to broadcast their pictures to the whole world, I believe that can be addressed as well.


              This is, of course, not any sort of requirement or a rule that people have to use this or anything like that; it's just a suggestion for folks who do a lot of picture stuff to have a reasonably handy (I hope; like I said I've not tinkered with it) way to share their pictures.

                Actually, it's sort of cool. It just messed up my head at first.

                    I gave it a try in the outdoor forum to see how to do it.
