Bug Report, Charles

In Officers lounge, if you go to the second page, some threads on that page are duplicates of the first.

...not to mention that front-and-centre member ratings are petty and stupid and the sort of thing they prance about singing about at TrekBBS.

I posted something here, but never mind. It was my browser, even though it didn't seem to be.

I hate the Trek_BBS.

But ... eh, nevermind, I'm inebriated.

Wow, that's a big word.

So's Simon. Or something.

Yes, you're despicable, and... and picable... and... and you're definitely, definitely despicable. How a person can get so despicable in one lifetime is beyond me. It isn't as though I haven't met a lot of people. Goodness knows it isn't that. It isn't just that... it isn't... it's... it's despicable.

In the old flare version, when you started writing a reply and then clicked back to the thread to check something, your text up until that point was still in the text field if you went ahead to the reply page.
Nowadays your entire message is wiped if you return to your reply field, making for some irritating mistakes.
Since not all thread-pages carry the "Topic Review" feature after a certain number of replies, I think the message memory should be reinstated.

Oh, and I still haven't gotten my home computer back online, so if anyone wants me, use the messaging system.

Methinks the fault lies not in the code, but in your browser.. that still works fine for me.

And if you reaaallly need to go back, click on the link to open the thread in a new window, leaving your text intact?

Along those lines, a feature other BBs have that I thought would be annoying, but isn't, is where when you type up your reply, the previous posts in the thread are displayed in reverse order at the bottom of the page. It helpsyou to check that you're replying to the correct person, and it stops you from having 50,000 windows open.

(BTW, Flare is really slow on my uni computers, running Win 2000 and IE5. But then, all web-pages are, so it's probably not your fault.)

Hmm, I'll see if there's something I can do with the browser settings.
And -Mike, I used to do the multi-browser bigamy thingee, and after just a couple of days I ended up replying to the wrong thread like a fuckhead, so now I just copy the text and insert it if I need to.
But it would be nice not to have to, naturally.

Doesn't Flare have that? But only for the first page ... once it goes to page -2- and on, it doesn't.

*checks*

You're right. I never noticed.

Okay, one other thing that has bugged me for years. When you reply to a topic, wouldn't it make more sense to be redirected to the latest page of a topic, rather than the first? That way you can check to see if anyone's posted while you were typing, and it just makes more sense. I am right.

Yes, you're right on that. It's annoying getting sent back to the first page instead of, like in that all-encompasing hilariously funny Contest thread, the 57th page.
