Maybe the old ID is in the database and it will not take duplicates.

Sorry for the confusion about the Insider board. To reach the Insider board you will use the same password you use to log in to the Pewter Insider section, not the one emailed to you for the forum. This establishes an association between the insider accounts and the forum accounts, and is a one-time check. Previously all forum and Insider accounts were seperate, so there was no way to tell which forum accounts were also Insiders. I hope this clears up the password confusion.

Oh, and jumping out of a thread once you have replied should not be the default behaviour IMO. You should stay in a thread after a reply and only jump out if you wish.

There is an option to change the default for this in profile settings.  I set mine to stay in the current thread by default after replying and it works fine.

Thanks for that......I hadn't found those options yet.

huntnbuc - how about changing your posts count so it doesn't mess the graphs up.

Why is the Reply # posted time stamp so large but the text size for the persons response so small?

Okay, That worked!  Thanks! No complaints really other than it is dificult for me to read the small dark colored text on a black background. Light colors would be nice.

The Quote-in-Quote function stinks.  It lists the posters at the top and then the quotes in order.  When people re-quote a few time it will be pretty confusing.

There is no link to the board index at the bottom of the screen after you read the posts.  It will let you jump to any other board, but not the board containing the current thread.  Meaning I have to scroll back to the top to use the link up there.

Looks like this is fixed, thanks!

The password I used for PI also works on the insider board. The one they sent is to get in the boards in general. Wacky, tho. :(
