    Apologies if you're working on this already, Server Guy, but there's still an issue with vBookie - the actual bet options for vBookie bet items are not showing up.

    Example here:
    http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?85544

    All I see is my having $500 in vCash and that I may bet multiple times - but there are no options to bet on, even though, as the vBet creator, I have created two options (Romney and Obama) and they are readily editable when I go in to modify the vBet.

    Any help or magic tinkering would be much appreciated so we can get vBookies up and running again now that the skating season has begun! :40beers:

    Something weird is going on with the anchors in the "go to last post". Sometimes it takes me to a post or two above the last post.

    I like that. If I haven't been in a thread in a while it reminds me of what we were discussing.

    I know I am probably the only one, but I miss the "last time you visited" info that used to be un the upper right hand corner.

    You might be the only one.

    I'm on a public com[puter at the library and I am getting a lot of "page cannot be displayed" and weird forum formatting. I THINK this system is Windows 7 but I sure wouldn't swear to it. I't not Windows XP, I know that for sure. Mybe it's Vista? Well, what it IS is some version of Windows that really really sucks, so, uh, take yr pick lol.

    Let me take a moment to apologise for the absence of vBookie post upgrade. This has now been resolved and you can all go back to gambling your vCash. I thank you for your patience during this time!

    Most likely it's a problem with the way the library has set up the web browser. Nothing I can do unfortunately.

    Did you address this before, I am having trouble with my clock tonight, it seems to have me posting 5 minutes faster than real time?

    Also, with regard to the complaint about posts being far apart, I think he means all of the white space (about an inch) at the bottom of each post, therefore it takes more time to scroll through than before, if this makes sense? It looks like there must be a minimum size. Don't know how you would fix this or explain it.

    My posting clock has always been ahead of my real time - nothing new there for me. I am posting this at 34 minutes after the hour by my computer's clock.

    Last night I was creating a headline for a poll in 'trash can'. I had to cut down on the length of the headline significantly because it won't allow more characters. Would it be possible to allow longer headlines?

    Sorry if this has been covered; I'm on a phone and very new at this. But I don't see a way to rep ppl. I have icons to report post and reply and quote, but how do I rep? I'm on android using the builtin browser.

    I'm on android using the stock browser and the default FSU skin and I can rep. You can't do it on the mobile skin though.

    Request for server guy (are you still here?). Can you make it so that when you insert a link, the text between the url tags is highlighted? This will make editing the text much easier, especially on a phone. Pretty please with sugar on top? I inserted a link using my phone yesterday and almost went postal trying to edit the text. :mad:

    Was it just me? I couldn't access the forum for about three hours just now. Some kind of boards error message kept appearing, citing MySQL error:(

    Board was down for 30-40 minutes tops, not three hours.

    Apologies

    This is a very minor thing, but something this new board doesn't do (which the old one did). When you provide a link to another site, when you entered the URL in the pop up box and said okay, the link appeared in this reply box with the link twice, the second of which was highlighted in black where you could enter wording specific to the link (you could write whatever you wanted). Now there is just the link twice and you have to select the text for the second part to re-word how you want your link to read. Not a big problem, but if you delete one extra character, it could make the link invalid. This might be tougher to do for people who have disabilities with their hands or vision. Also, the links appear in dark blue amongst black text. I think people might not realize a link is provided because the two text colours are so close together. Could links be given a different colour or shade to make their being a link more obvious? Much thanks. :D

    I've had this happen a couple of times - wondering what the heck people were talking about, not realizing one of the words was actually a link.

    The easiest way to do this is to type the text you want in your message, then highlight the text and *then* click on the link button, and paste your link into the box. Much easier!

    Yes, this is what I was complaining about earlier.

    This is very difficult to do on a phone. It shouldn't be too hard for Server Guy to fix (I think...).

    It's an awesome video!

    galaxygirl -- there are many things on the web that aren't fun to do on a phone. My response was for Peter to try on a regular computer.

    Yes, I know. What I meant was, even if it works on a computer, it doesn't work too well on a phone so I'm really hoping it gets fixed. :)

    Because it doesn't work on a phone doesn't necessarily mean it's broken.
