Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

My Posts Break Tables

SilentCoconutSilentCoconut Registered User regular
For some reason, my posts are breaking the table and extending into a single, long line rather then wrapping around. See my post in this thread for an example, though it will likely happen to this post as well. And it might just be on my end, but it's happened on two different operating systems, now (XP SP3 and Windows 7).

    It displays the same as any other post on my end (Firefox 3.0.10 on Ubuntu).

    Steam's sigs are fucked up, your sig is a 1x30000 white line. Delete your sig until Steam fixes their shit if you want to stop being a H-bar rapist.

    I noticed the same thing with some other forumers, but figured Steam would be quick on the ball to fix all this.

    Sweet, thanks. I didn't even remember that I had a signature, let alone that it was broken.

    Those signatures aren't official. They're created by some guy from these forums and he changed the domain the sigs were hosted on at some point. The 1x3000 image was most likely to get people to make a new one at the new domain.

    Because somehow that was imagined to work better than a 250x50 image saying "hey, update your sig."

    I would imagine that it is indeed more effective. Not necessarily a better choice though.

    Some days I just want to smack people with a rolled up newspaper. Or a phone book.
    A folding chair is looking like an attractive option right now too...

    How? It's less effective, but more obnoxious.

    I actually noticed a very similar issue when I tried to post a reply to someone from my Blackberry web-browser. It doesn't handle various forum tools very well, such as "Spoiler" tags and whatnot. When typing a reply, it kept going on in one line rather than wrapping down, and after posting it... although it wrapped properly, it repeated a few words here and there.

    Just my 2 cents, I don't expect the forums to comply with Blackberry standards.

    More pressure applied more quickly from more sources.

    If you just change the image to something low key advising of the new url, no one cares.

    You adopt a sig image that is guaranteed to break any forum's rules and now you have everyone and their uncle bitching at you to change that thing yesterday.

    Dickish - yes
    Counterproductive - perhaps
    Effective - apparently

    At any rate, was it intentional on the part of the sig host? I have no idea.

    Actually, it just makes people report it, which makes us (the mods) have to edit it to something saying "your hosting is broken." Dickish, yes. Obnoxious, yes. Same end result as the much less obnoxious, less dickish version? Yes.

    I wonder if Ramius can just filter out images from both the old hosting and the new new hosting, so that neither are loaded? That would fix everyone's problems.

    Who's hosting is that, anyhow?

    I don't think he did change it on purpose, since he made the hosting switch quite a while ago and the sigs WERE all changed to "new hosting now at blah blah blah"
