Yes, you're right, there was a software glitch that lasted about a week, it was fixed a few days ago. The glitch caused signatures that used dBCodes to include unintended spaces in messages, but it wouldn't affect the stored signature of the profile unless you actually edited it during that period.
There needs to be one more button, a button to report spam or offensive messages to a moderator.
Yep, it's on the list. This won't be coming soon. I know it sounds simple, but what I want to implement is a problem reporting system that includes tracking, reporting, assignments, closing or voiding, etc.
Would it be possible to add a way a member could search for his or her posts that have been rated so they can get an idea of what works or does not work?Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!
The long answer is that the rating system as currently implemented is widely viewed as deeply flawed and will be modified. An improved version of the current approach will remain an option for board administrators, but the version I'll eventually be implementing and that will be used for this board will be an automated form of our Post-of-the-Month system. Unfortunately I cannot provide a schedule at this time.
The message index feature for threads is back. You can click on the mood icon in threads and messages and get an index of all the messages in the thread. Messages are listed in order down the left hand side. In the far right column are listed all the replies for that message along with an indication of whether the replies have been responded to. A red dot indicates no response yet, an orange dot indicates that the author of the message acknowledges the reply but does not plan to respond, and a green dot indicates a response was posted.
Normally the dots are small, but they are much larger when you yourself are the author of the message. If you click on a red dot it will become orange to indicate you wish to acknowledge the reply. If you click on an orange dot it will become red to indicate you no longer wish to acknowledge the reply. You can't click on a green dot because it indicates you've already responded, and you can't delete a message.
I'm hoping to discover what a "Whoop!" from a thousand miles away sounds like. I'll be at my window listening. Or will you be playing it cool?

Words can't begin to express my excitement. I guess I'll have to throw a celebration party. PM me if you are in traveling distance of Duluth, Minnesota - Send money and I'll try to book Oni to entertain.
I'm using IE8 and I noticed whenever I roll over the red "minus" icon denoting a suspended member, the message box that pops up indicating "member suspended ... click for details" disappears whenever I move the cursor to click on it.
Yeah, I was wondering if anyone would use it the way you're trying to use it.
The "click for details" means to click on the icon. In other words, if you hover over the suspended icon you get a hoverbox of info that disappears as soon as you're no longer hovering over the icon, while if you click on the icon you get a persistent box which might have links in it.
I could change the instructions to say "click on icon for more info."
Another approach might be to bring up a hoverbox whose upper right corner is positioned on top of the suspended icon, then if the hoverbox has links in it the user could move the mouse cursor to them without the hoverbox disappearing. The problem with a non-persistent box is that a little sloppy mouse motion outside the box will cause it to disappear, but this can be fixed with a turn-off delay, but turn-off delays can be annoying.
