  1. One suggestion that we used to get were that signatures should be displayed on mobile. Signatures only take 4 lines, which is less than quite a lot of the posts, and there is also all of the post metadata/etc that takes up more space.
  2. Can you post the output of http://www.whatsmybrowser.org/ (you can remove the IP if you want). As I understand it, the issue you are having is that when you click into the editor, extra buttons appear on the toolbar (some of them duplicated). When you click away, those buttons disappear again. Is that right?
  3. The only coloured text in that post, regardless of theme, are the headers. Have you edited it to fix it? You're talking about some of the posts inside that topic. That is happening because, when you originally copied the text from somewhere else, it included formatting at a higher level than the editor uses (it put formatting on the <p> tags, but the editor styles using <span>). You can clear it using the remove formatting Tx button - just highlight everything that needs fixing and click that button. You will then need to center align it again. Unfortunately fixing this properly, so setting the colour to auto will override the container style, is more difficult than it sounds.
  4. If you do write a parser, I would suggest parsing it into HTML instead, then copying the HTML as rich text so you can paste it directly into the editor.
  5. I realise that it's partly because the buttons aren't there, but I just went through your latest 250 posts, and the only formatting that I saw was bold. Yes, some formatting can be useful occasionally, but not frequently enough to justify removing other buttons IMO. The editor doesn't break the buttons onto a new line very gracefully, though that is an option. A dropdown would be ideal, but unfortunately it's not supported by the editor in a useful way.
  6. Which buttons are those? The available space on the toolbar is limited (because it can only be set for specific preset editor widths), but if there is demand for a different button, it can be changed.
  7. Supported tags, according to the forum source code: acronym background b code (as well as codebox, html, php, sql and xml, which are all exact synonyms) color font hr img indent i left center right email member url list quote size spoiler s (or strike) sub sup u Many of them require arguments (such as url requiring the URL).

    The servers are located in North America, and we have had a few reports of buffering in Australia/NZ. However, while more common than reports for many other places, they are still quite rare, and tend to be temporary issues rather than a permanent slowness as far as I can tell.
  9. Unfortunately, there's no way to make displaying the group optional - either everyone has it displayed, or nobody does. Being a Floatplane subscriber shouldn't be something to be ashamed of though.
  10. You're a great person.

  11. This is not a bug. Accounts can be deleted if requested by the account owner.
  12. The number of people who would benefit from this is very small, and implementing it would require a very large amount of work, so this isn't going to happen.
  13. It's an interesting idea, but unfortunately it would be fairly complicated to implement. I have added it to my list of things to think about, but it's a very long list, and I barely have any time to go through it.
  14. That video (in the post that you originally had the issue) is working fine for me, in Firefox and Chrome. Short of amazon of being malicious, I don't know what could have caused this. Is it a recurring issue, or just that post?
  15. We're aware of the issue, but unfortunately it's not as easy as it looks to fix. It is on the list of things to fix though.
