So Cap, my yellow chest bug persists but has now spread to the General Discussion forum's chests too.
I'm starting to think it's something on my side. Is there anything I can do to fix it if this is the case? Maybe something messed up when I had to flush my DNS cache after you moved servers?

My goodness this chest bug is getting weirder as it goes.
Now I get the yellow chests when I myself post in a thread!

Nobody else seems to be getting this bug. You should get your eyes checked

I'm getting the bug as well occasionally, mainly with the RGO thread. Even that's not constant, so I've really no clue what's causing it.

Yes, I just experienced it again in another thread. I'll look into it when I get back home this weekend, currently visiting my family in Ohio.

The code
[url=https://dl.dropbox.com/u/46669022/Pride/cap0000.png]0[/url]
Shows the link instead of a clickable 0.

Example:
0
as opposed to:
1
(same code)

I guess it has something to do with the character '0' being seen as actual null value?

I think for the "whip materials" thread, it took me to the latest post instead of the first unread post. Anybody else notice this?

Yeah, I've started to check upwards in case it does that. It has happened a few times.

Attachments should be working now (a little sloppy on layout / doesn't give you a success or error message).

100000000000000000 times easier to upload multiple files at once so I hope you guys feel free to use this instead of other image hosts. I will also be adding the ability to place attachments inline with text soon.

Testing...

Anyways, I didn't get a yellow chest for the puppy post, nor the crystal skulls post.

So it's not just me? I didn't get those as yellow chests either. Thought there were no new posts, logged out, then saw the "today" and logged back in XD

Damn it, I got those two chests when I checked a few moments ago!
I'm apparently ass-backwards here.

I got the chests - but on examining the thread I saw that I had been linked to the most recent post, when there were two others that had been posted earlier in the day, before I had checked the forum that morning, and which hadn't yellow-chested on me

Sorry, I had made a change which improved it when I originally posted, then another change which made it worse than ever.

Did some testing though, I think it's fixed.

Fixed. There was an if statement that was inaccurately reading "false" because the 0 was being treated as the number 0 and not the string '0'

Oh, snap. Mistook it for the last one at a glance.
