  1. We've slightly tweaked the wording of the rule to hopefully clarify this - the problem is promoting your own listings rather than just referencing other people's.
  2. Content that would be considered unreasonably shocking, such as gore. Generally stuff that common sense would say is not appropriate to post.
  3. This is the third "community standards" topic since then.
  4. Because the rules used to be that we don't allow any external links at all, to cut down on advertising etc (and because we don't want moderators to need to visit all the links in people's signatures to check if they're ok). We have since added a couple of common exceptions that are definitely safe, but there's not much reason to make that list much bigger given that things can be added to profiles too.
  5. No, it hasn't. The old topic is still visible, and has never been hidden. Correct, you're going to have to remove that. This rule has been the same for a long time.
  6. There are no specific rules for member titles, because it's not something that's been problematic in the past. As long as it complies with the general rules, it's probably fine.
  7. I've unhidden @Spotty's summary of the changes a couple of posts up. There are no changes here in what we will be enforcing, just making our current policies more explicit.
  8. Community Standards Generally speaking, as long as you stick to the following core principles you should not find yourself subject to disciplinary action: Ensure a friendly atmosphere to our visitors and forum members Encourage the freedom of expression and exchange of information in a mature and responsible manner "Don't be a dick" —Wil Wheaton "Be excellent to each other" —Bill and Ted Remember your audience; both present and future The following is not an exhaustive list of the rules and guidelines that must be followed when participa
  9. If you just delete it with inspect element then sure that is expected to break things. If you accidentally manage to delete it without deleting the whole quote, do you know how you did that, and what browser+OS are you using?
  10. You should be able to delete the whole quote with backspace, but not just the bottom half of it
  11. Unfortunately I think this is a bug with the iOS browser - quotes are not supposed to be editable, so you shouldn't be able to just backspace part of it. Unfortunately, editor cross-browser compatibility really sucks (my experience at the moment is that it 100% consistently crashes Chrome on Android) - there are loads of hacks already to try and make things work consistently, but as browsers change new hacks are needed.
  12. It looks like this happens when a topic is scheduled to be posted in the future, then the schedule is overridden to post immediately. I'll look into how to fix this.
  13. How did you create that spoiler (did you insert it directly, was it copied from somewhere else, etc), did you try to delete stuff from it (or delete it entirely),and what was it supposed to contain?
  14. Force overriding the font on the forum is not supported - the icons are backed by fonts for various legacy reasons. However, unless you're blocking scripts, it should work correctly anyway - clicking your username on the desktop view, or the "arrow_down" replacement text in the mobile hamburger menu, should show the options.
