Previewing my profile Can't Post

Congratulations! Everything looks very nice, and I'm sure we'll figure out everything pretty quickly.

I did have great feelings of insecurity when I set up my profile and couldn't do a preview. So I'm using this to do that. As a suggestion, when you finish editing your profile you should get a preview (as on the old board) so you can fix anything before embarassing yourself in public.

Or maybe I haven't read enough instructions? (I'm unlikely to be the only one with that failing)

Edit: and now that I've seen it, I need to point out that your 'horizontal rule'
in my footer is too wide for the message box and wraps around.

Do you mean previewing your post (footer, etc.) [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes, you can't preview your footer when you preview your post.

You'll have to do a test post (on feedback please). The good news is you can delete it if you delete it within 10 minutes. After that an Admin can delete it for you. Smile

If you mean previewing your profile, you're also right. You have to view it, then go back in and change it if you don't like it.

Yes, well, that's why I'm here Wink.

Why does the horizontal rule wrap around in my footer and not in my message?

It's from a Reading Room discussion post I made, oh, so long ago! Just ran across it when I was looking through all of my TORn folders.

It would be nice if somehow the forum could show *who* we were quoting in the quote box.

The profile interface is strangely lacking instructions, such as the maximum size of the avatars in pixels, and the accepted formats... trying out a PNG file, 100x100...

We could send this forum back in time and let PJ know what he did while he is still back in 1997 planning on doing King Kong. Tongue

Hmm, maybe he could have done LOTR better that way...

nah!

Can't believe I'm up at 2:30 AM laughing at my cleverness to post an image of Smeagol in a dress. Tongue Like I don't have a million other things I should be doing. TORn will be the death of me . . .

G'night all, see ya tomorrow. Er . . . later today.

....that avatar is truly disturbing. Sly

Between the acting of a dreadful thing
And the first motion, all the interim is
Like a phantasma, or a hideous dream:
The genius and the plan thus inspired
Depart me and I, entering a room,
Find myself on the threshold, stand still
And wonder what I came to do there.
