    1) VB4 is slow - why are we using it
    2) The layout is more cumbersome than the last one
    3) Can the "Quick Reply box be a bit taller than 6 lines? Please?
    4) How do I stop the forum from automatically making links out of words I type such as "power" and "software"? I don't like having my posts altered.

    Thanks.

    Want the words you type omitted from search engines too? Are you with CTU?

    No, I just want what gets posted to be what I typed.

    It's new?

    I concur.

    3) Can the "Quick Reply box be a bit taller than 6 lines? Please?
    You can resize it yourself, but I agree that it should be larger initially.

    Is there an option to turn off SmartTags in your own posts?
    Those are going to get annoying.

    Think about this. I could make a post about Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and the SmartTag will hot link to whatever Wiki entry about power supplies thanks to SmartTags.
    Never mind that the index for these little craptastical links slows the forum down...
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    It's a Quick Reply box for gods sake.

    If you are typing more than six lines, it ain't a quick reply.

    quick reply is now 140px instead of 100px. I can't go any more than that though because the entire page would fall apart.
    How about we make a public poll for the wiki links? for 1 week. If more people hate it than love it. Ill kill it. Can we agree on that?


    - things left to fix(ish)
    - some of our article pages keep magically breaking
    - cms comments are driving me insane
    - mac sub forums are inaccessible. (windows FTW)
    - deep off topic password doesn't post therefore not accepted
    - vbimg host port to albums
    - aggregate last 3 posts on blog posts quick reply
    - get a layout style that you like. (feel free to scower the internet with me and find one, ill be happy to oblige)

    Thanks guys for your 18 pages of feedback through this whole experience.

    A poll about what?
    The location of the link to the Wiki?

    What about the wiki entries that show up repeatedly in a new posts search every single time that have broken links?
    I honestly believe these are showing up any time someone views the Wiki page somehow.

    The layout that was in place before the vBulletin upgrade.
    It's like an old shoe: familiar and oddly comfortable.

    a poll about weather auto-linking wiki words should be on or off. I've asked vault wiki if they know of a way to make it a personal setting or not.
    im not sure what the issue is with those random posts but im gonna get to the bottom of it and shut it off
    i can't get the old layout because no one has made one for this vb4, but im gonna keep looking and if i have to do it myself i will.

    when trying to edit a post, pressing the advanced button doesnt do anything. Tested in googly chrome.
