Like the new forum Maeyan  ;D

I haven't tried to break everything yet, but I have noticed for some reason spell checker is not working properly for me with firefox 5.0 when typing a reply. It underlines mistakes in red as usual, but when I right click there is no spelling options I just get the same menu I would get if I right click anywhere else on the page. I've tried turning off noscript, adblocker etc and no difference.

edit... Just noticed that when trying to copy/paste into the text box there is no cut, copy, paste or delete in the menu either. Ctrl V still works

One thing I did find strange is that with this karma "thing" you can repeatedly applaud or smite the same person over and over again, it just tells you to wait an hour between each one.... tried it out on a spammer so not to mess anyone's account.

p.s. not sure I like the extra stats... It shows I spend far to much time here lurking  :-[ :-[

The spellchecker thing is related to the Firefox API. It is the browsers responsibility to integrate spellchecker functions to text fields, so not much I can do about that. :( I use the Chrome browser and the spell-checker works okay. The same applies to cut/copy controls.

I thought i'd activate this 'karma' thing that came with SMF. I guess the idea is that you can express your gratitude or dislike when we read each others posts. Obviously you can't spam the same person to increase their karma, but to applaud/smite them at the appropriate times.

As far as the extra stats go, you may just have to browse the forum as a guest if you don't want everyone to know how much you like the forum lol.

Yeah thanks for the info maeyan.

I haven't looked at my profile in months, I usually set it and forget it.
