Truly bizzarre forum problem
« on: January 11, 2015, 09:44:32 AM »
I should add that I work with a great variety of text editors and web design programs. This problem is unlike anything I've ever seen:


so: around the time of the forum migration I composed a thread called "Tell us about your aliens" which began with an introductory paragraph, enclosed below as a screen-shotted image.



I cannot post the text contained in that image...anywhere on the forum. Here's the creepy part: I can't post a TYPED OUT TRANSCRIPTION of that text, so it's not formatting. The forum is disagreeing with some of the words (IE "Sci-fi" or similar) but I can't figure out which ones.


My Theodidactus, now I see that you are excessively simple of mind and more gullible than most. The Crystal Sphere you seek cannot be found in nature, look about you...wander the whole cosmos, and you will find nothing but the clear sweet breezes of the great ethereal ocean enclosed not by any bound

How does this error show itself? Is it like the errors which have recently been described in the "Hosting plan change" thread on top of the forum, so a 403+404 error?

I like sci-fi well enough, but I'm perpetually disappointed by the lack of imagination that goes into a lot of sci-fi aliens.

Like in quotes Creates problems. Try That word in quotes with either a space after the e or any words after it.

Here's the modified version of your post:
I like sci-fi well enough, but I'm perpetually disappointed by the lack of imagination that goes into a lot of sci-fi aliens. Even when they go beyond "like humans but with weird bits of silicon on their heads" it's invariably something like "kangaroos, I guess, but with wings"
" Why is this godforsaken hellhole worth dying for? "
". . .  We know nothing about them, their language, their history or what they look like.  But we can assume this.  They stand for everything we don't stand for.  Also they told me you guys look like dorks. "
