I wonder if anyone can help me on this - not a big issue, but a tad puzzling... I follow (too) many threads, and when clicking on them in my list of Notifications, it usually takes me direct to the first unread post, which is tremendous and sadly missing from other forums (fora?). Sometimes, though, it takes me to one I've previously read, often several posts up. It happens mostly on my PC (Win10, Firefox) but also occasionally on my android phone.

As far as I can see that's a code error on the board software.  It takes you to the post you actually want, then it loads any/all images on the thread, which moves the post you want down and leaves you looking at something you've already seen.

If there's no images on the thread, it works properly.

Guys, does putting someone on my ignore list stop them from seeing posts and contacting me on forum or seeing my content. 

Thread string TLDR  so though wise to ask 

I believe it just stops you from seeing their content.

Anyone noticed Chrome on Android crashes when replying to a PM? As soon as I tap on the text box, boom it crashes. Threads no problem. 

Just checked with my version of Chrome and I didn't experience the issue (Samsung Note 10 Plus) What version are you running?

but, irritatingly, will put a little notification on a thread saying that there's a post there, but it's not being shown because you're blocking content from xxx member.

Which, if you're nosey, means the forum software is basically dangling the post in front of you, almost daring you to click the "reveal this" button.  Just bloody block it!!  I don't need the software to proudly tell me it's doing it's job, just do it silently!

I wanted to set up a discussion forum for a large group of people who all hung out on forums a decade ago. I found a great open source one that deployed in a snap, was super happy. Until I realised it had no block function and the devs had no intention of adding one. Some of the people who would have wanted to join would have stayed away if other people had joined and they couldn't block them, long standing beef. Made the whole thing a non-starter and now we're on Facebook. So annoying.

Yes.  I've had this for months now, have mentioned it elsewhere a few times.

 

If you choose "use desktop site" within chrome it doesn't crash but it's obviously a bit tricky to use.

Interesting. Never had this before but I had a Pixel 4XL. I reckon this has only happened since I've downgraded to a Pixel 5 after my 4XL broke.

Yeah unfortunately that's a common issue that isn't limited to this site. It would be good if it would wait until the images loaded before scrolling to the post, but that also has its disadvantages

Don't all the accepted forms of embedded image have their pixel size in their metadata? 

Going back to my HTML days that was a feature of the code, you could embed the size of the image so the page displayed correctly while the images trickled in on your 14.4 dialup.

Wonder if that's something to suggest back in their feedback?

Working fine here.  You being hard on the cookies? 

Good point, yes I am actually, I have Adblock and Trace both running, Trace has a tendency to break things although I've never had a problem with YouTube embeds before now.

Why does everyone's avatar have a little blue rocket on now?

The rocket now tells you the rank, rather than it being displayed under the avatar. Diagonally opposite, a graphic may also display if the user is a new member or an admin.

Not sure if this has been mentioned, but on Chrome on Android (several versions of either across several phones, Pixel 2 XL, Samsung G7, Redmi k30) inserting a smiley into a post completely breaks the inline editor.  You can't delete the smiley (it starts inserting chunks of code into the page every time you hit backspace) - you also can't put a newline in after it. It also seems to break the toolbar buttons, so you can't insert more than one.

8) Works OK for me (Moto G6) on chrome (though I often have to click twice on 'submit reply')

I always have to press twice on any submit button on this forum. The first press always just jumps up the page and does nothing.

      Having recently had some tussles with a dead BMW ECU, I thought this was really interesting:
      https://www.ifixit.com/News/52123/the-coming-battle-over-hacking-your-own-car
      Especially how the guy managed to update to a newer version of Ford Sync enabling CarPlay.
      I am tempted to really learn this side of 'shiteing' as well as mechanics.

      Hi all,
      Apologies for the downtime, there was some routing issues with our hosting provider which meant the server was cut off from the outside world. I'm finding out what went wrong and how we can avoid a repeat.

      A proper shite 90s jet ski just came up by me and I’m sorely tempted. Looks like a decent version of the year, a seadoo spi.
       
      Seems rotax powered which I remember from my karting days and I’m hoping to go and see it tomorrow. Looks like a two cylinder carb fed job.
       

       
      Anyone played with them?
       
      As usual the engines in bits and it’s missing the jet whatever that is. Presume where the prop fires water down?
       
      Are there any rules to it’s use or can I just get it running and blast about on it on the local water and lochs?

      So I’ve held off here for a month now but I’m stuck and need advice.
       
      Some of you might remember I had a Golf Turbo estate for sale in Jan. Well I sold it to Exiled_Tat_Gatherer and he paid for it with the intention of collection.
       
      But, I haven’t had a message off him in nearly 4 weeks now and I’ve messaged loads. I’ve phoned him and got voicemail. Now I’m not trying to muddy the lads credibility at all, he’s done his bit but I’m worried about not being able to get in touch.
       
      He’s in Belgium and intended to fly over and collect. I’m aware he bought numerous other cars off here and wanted to collect them all in a oner but he’s now not posted in ages.
       
      What the hell do I do? I really need the car shifting but he’s paid for it. I can’t store it forever and I’m still paying tax on it so it can be legal for him to collect.
       
      Really stuck. Any advice appreciated. I’m erring towards selling it on and refunding him if I can get hold of him but don’t want to be the arsehole.
       
      Sorry if this isn’t the way to do things but I’m really at a loss.
