    Yes, the board being so broken makes it almost impossible to truly "edit" most of our posts or signatures. Anything that contains images and links is especially difficult to recover. The only thing I can suggest for folks who are just starting to encounter this is making use of the editor Source Mode feature (the button next to "remove format") when you plan to edit a huge post.



    Now it has been a million years since I have used anything but the WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor where you can use all the buttons and pretty much format everything in the reply box as is instead of plopping vB codes everywhere and waiting to preview. That's compared to the more basic editors that aren't as advanced with the formatting and will only show you the vB code tags surrounding text. I'm not sure if that Source Mode button appears for all the editors, but it's what I use in my posts and in my signature for editing nowadays.

    This doesn't really work out for the signature editing if you open the link to an already blank signature, sadly. When I click the link, I can still see the signature that I have which is just text and links so I'm still able to edit using the method below.

    With posts you can still see your actual post upon trying to do a quick edit while still in the thread without using "Go Advanced." Meaning you hit "Edit Post" and it brings up the editing box right there where your post is. It's at that point that I would hit the "Switch Editor to Source Mode" and copy out the entire source code that now should be showing you all the vB formatting tags and such for links, formatting, photos, etc. Take that whole copy and paste to "Go Advanced" where you will encounter a blank post. Paste your source, make your edits, copy the whole thing again just in case and "Preview Changes" should show you your post properly by this point and still allow you to edit what you just put in.

    That's how it works for me anyway...and it doesn't work all the time, either. It may not be the same for everyone unfortunately, but it's all I can suggest especially for editing or updating large posts. Again, this won't really work too well for signatures if the edit screen is already coming up blank.

    Hi, but please do your greeting in the New Members Thread.

    So, during my time of lurking here, I noticed a problem with some phones.
    When you go on to the mobile forum, you have the ability to view the full site. Takes me back to the forum page. With some phones, when I click on a board it goes back to the mobile version, if I press 'View Full Site', it kicks me out of the board and back the forum page. Then I do the same thing over again in a loop until I give up and use a PC instead.

    When I switch from mobile to "normal" version on mobile phone (laptop, tablet etc), I am also redirected to the main page (full site view). Then, when I put on backwards button to go back to page I'd started before, and it shows still in "mobile view". But you need only to refresh this page and then paramethers of view will be updated, and your page also will be in "normal" view.

    If I correctly understood what problem you had meant, so that's sollution)

    Another problem, I'm using the Google app on an IPad, and when I try to lurk here, every now and again, it will take a long time to respond, it'll say that This page is not available, with the last time crashing the app. I refuse to use the Mobile skin as it's nowhere near as good as the more complex one.

    You can't search at all, but I think that's a v bulletin problem rather than just here.

    Search has been broken for a long time, but whatout the extra stress of Boards and Rec (the off topic community of the NHC, closed June 27, 2020), they might get it to work. Also, I have seen other Vbulletin boards with working search functions, so it's most likely this forum. In fact, this forum is broken most of the time, with many unable to edit posts.

    I started a r n r gone boy thread bc I didn't know about the archive of r n rs and couldn't search. I can't delete the thread because I can't delete the initial post. It's buried by now, but it still bothers me that it's up, anybody know how to fix that?

    You have to ask an admin, like Dark Homer, or a moderator like Tomacco. They'll either lock it or delete it.

    There are multiple problems that I would like to report.

    1: When submitting an arcade score, you can write a comment. But when you attempt to do that, it redirects you back to the index. The only way you can do this now is by pressing the refresh button.
    2: 2 Hand Poker seems to be broken. I want to put 3 aces but it only allows me to put 2.
    3: Sometimes, it does 2 posts in a graphical way, but when refreshed, it disappears.
    4: The writing goes off the boundaries on every skin but the Sleek one.
    5: The arcade game 'Board?' is broken. I can't get any points, even after following every instruction.
