The more hands the merrier.

And your post count will go up quickly.

Keep checking the Beatles Dreams thread (and the possible new thread called Beatles Dreams Reconstruction Notes) for how this reconstruction will go.

The number of new posts isn't renewing properly for me (in the 'unread and updated topics' menu), at times i'm being taken back to posts from the end of June, my PM inbox number is refusing to budge (no its not that no one is sending me PMsa-hard-days-night-paul-11), and i'm getting notification messages that must be repeats as they're not in new posts. Additionally pages aren't loading properly as i'm seeing all the html code.

Oh, and the dropdown 'New/Recently Updated Topics' menu keeps breaking.

Was thinking it was just my laptop cache thing but the exact same problems are occurring on another laptop i have access to.

Aside from that everything is good.

Sorry, that might be due to changes I was making. I've rolled them back, but let me know if you're still seeing odd things.

Several peculiar things happening today…quoting posts doesn't seem to work (the "Add Reply" box shows up empty of the quote.) The box full of smileys has appeared again (for the first time in a long time) although I still can't paste or drag them into the posting field in any way. And the toolbar with the italics, bold etc. options has disappeared.

I'll have to check it out at home later – this office computer has a few different quirks of its own that may be affecting this in some way.

The smiley box is fully open for me and the button to close it has gone, is this the same for everyone and therefore an update to the forum or some glitch in the system?

The following people thank meanmistermustard for this post:

I think it's an update, I can't close it either.

ahdn_paul_06 But is it a bad or good thing? Maybe it depends how much you use them. I am fine with it

I use them often too, but it does bother me to have to scroll down to submit a post (yes, I know, very nitpicky, but it takes longer this way.)blue-meanie

I was going to write all this, but a picture saves a thousand words. I had to look a-hard-days-night-john-3 for my submit, cancel, reply buttons. Before, they were right below/by the posting box on the lower right corner.

Are only mods seeing the *Lock this topic and *Pin this post options? I don't remember seeing them on my screen like this before today.

@Joe – additional to the smiley question – the spoiler feature isnt working properly when folk are quoting posts, the text is being displayed in full.

I inserted a smiley face at the end of a reply I just published, and the smiley face won't show up.  I tried deleting the smiley face and re-inserting it.

Still no smiley face.

I see your Blue Meanie icon on that post. I have noticed that it does take a second or two for the smileys to show up on my phone.

Just an observation…Sometimes when I am on my phone, the smiley/save icon bar goes hidden. I just tap where I know the icons are and it reappears.

Thanks Ahhh Girl.  It's never happened to my posts before, so it seemed odd.

The video in this post won't embed – not sure why.
