When I copy paste something from notepad, tabs vanish. The writingbox shows them, but you can't type them even with ctrl+tab and they aren't visible in the final post. This probably could be worked around by using code mode, but I love using tabs without it.

That's a problem with HTML whitespace, I don't think there's anything I can do about that.

Stuff in code tags don't show up on topic review, which is pretty annoying when you're trying to use information put in them. Mind fixing that?

When you get messages nothing really lights up. You kinda have to actually look at the messages bar, and have it register mentally that there's a (1) next to it. It'd be nice if the messages bar turned yellow or something when you have unread messages.

Fix editing posts into stickies and announcements for mods, I don't like bugging Erno for petty matters.

Oh yeah, about that... Either I've forgotten how to use my magical superpowers, or then I've lost them completely; There's nothing to be seen behind the admin bar... Not that I'd needed them, but I remember being able to do stuff before. Was that before we moved to your software?

The forum message system is really buggy and cubersome to use. Could you please do something about it?

1) Change the recipient selection so that it gives suggestions based on what you type. At least make it alert if even one of the recipients have been typed wrong.
2) Now I got an e-mail about a forum message I supposedly received. I can't find it from the forum... It was in an old message chain... Weird that it wasn't highlighted.

In overall, many of the "bugs" I notice are actually not bugs, but because I fail to notice things like this.

There is no link to the forums or login from the front site, unless you are already logged in... I went through the site map. Also, French keyboard stupidt.

I noticed this also when I logged in from another computer. I was going to post it here but I totally forgot lol.

What do you mean? Are you not seeing this? If not, what browser/OS?

I'm quite sure they appeared only after I logged in. It was firefox in a hotel lobby.

I just logged out to check it, and found it. It's a little odd that you have to go to the forum to log in though; could you place a link to login under the welcome tab?

Amm... This is a tiny thing, about the appearance of the forum. If you hover your mouse over a name, a box appears around it. The box is half way over the next line, which in my case says Master mine stomper. You might want to move the second line away a bit or resize the box?

It looks fine to me, probably browser-specific. I haven't cleaned up the CSS for viewing topics yet but that will eventually happen

Ah! Spotted another one right away, as I lost my message when I tried going advanced while editing the previous message... Do you want me to post this in the bugs thread also?

I'm using MacOS Snow Leopard 10.6.x and Chrome 15.0.x.x

Some of the forum status icons also seem to be missing. The amount of overlap depends on the status icon... If there is an icon, the overlap seems to be worse.

Figured out how to and then took a screenshot for your convenience.

Aha! Chrome. The one browser I didn't test.

Being able to disable graphical emoticons would be nice.

You can disable them already. There should be a little checkbox in advance mode.
