I can edit and delete mine on the General Discussion and Off-topic areas... what area in particular are you wondering about?

We usually keep those off in the IG boards so people can't "take back" something they already "said" in-game, but there should be buttons on the other boards for editing and deleting!

In theory we should be able to change the settings so people can edit their own posts within 30 minutes of the original posting? This would allow people to catch more typos, but then again, we could all just be more careful in the first place ^.^

Personally for an IG forum there should not be any editing allowed... as it is technically something happening IG you should not be able to change what you said...

I'm having two issues with the new boards. First, both Stacey and I have been having issues loging in. We'll enter the appropriate information, hit [login], and will be shown the screen that says:

You have been successfully logged in.
Click this link to return to the previous page.

Then it logs us out.
Dan - I was having the same issue and I discovered that a little patience solves the problem

When you login and it displays the "You have been successfully logged in." page wait a few seconds. It should automatically redirect you the the page you were at before logging in. I find that if you wait until it does the redirect it will work properly. If you attempt to click on any link while it is displaying the "You have been successfully logged in." message you will be logged out.

Give that a try.

This isn't always true.
i have the same problem and whether I let it go or click a link its a 50% chance either way its actually going to work. Letting it auto-redirect has actually been less successful for me lately over trying to quickly click the "return" link lol. I think its just random.

I'm not digging that the thread link goes to the first page, and the "go to last post" link is a tiny square next to the last author's name. A link with the words "Go to last page" next to the thread title would be better, IMHO

I think that the layout setting "Black Pearl", is sweet. The forum pops up all old school with, in my opinion , some pretty sweet colors. I'm no fan of bright web pages so it works out great, the navigation clears up a bit also. Some fetures are give and take, but, I hated the new boards untill I changed from the defult layout.


---How To Change Your Layout---
To change layout settings go to "User Control Panel", "Board preferences", Under "Global Settings", is a tab labeled "My board style:" (8 colums down), Chooses "Black Pearl". I LIKE IT!

I have the same problem at work. I had to delete my cookies and then I was able to stay logged in.

By the way a spellcheck button would be great!!!!

yeah, makes me think twice too due to bad spelling and can't figure out where the spell check is on this board

There is no spell check...

Pretty much your only option is to cut and paste the post into Word (or something similar) before you post and do a spell check there...

Unless there is something on these boards that can be enabled...

Mike?

Yes, I am upset about having to lose years of messages on the old BB too, but we have to get past that.

So what do you guys think of this new BB?
Well I couldnt get access to the old boards so I like the new ones and being able to post :D

every once in a while you need clean everything up and throw out stuff :(
I know its hard (im a pack rat) to louse anything but a clean start fresh slate is nice also!

new board needs more pictures :) but its good
