Clean up on aisle "Main" ;D Can't Post

Could one of you lovely, lovely Admins clean up the mess all over my latest "Getting to know you" NfB post please?

Thanks

One book to rule them all
One book to find them
One book to bring them all
And in TORn bind them
In the land of TORnadoes...where the brilliant play

Done [In reply to] Can't Post

I think you only wanted the garbage "A" characters removed right?

If you needed something else done, let me know (now I'm off to actually read the post) Smile

Yeah [In reply to] Can't Post

Still can't figure out why it puts all those stupid things in. I thought it was from when I typed the articles up in Word and then copied it into Wordpress, but this time I typed it direct into Wordpress and they were still there Unsure

Thanks for that Earl *big hug*

They show up [In reply to] Can't Post

in nearly all the NfB posts. I'm constantly editing them out. I think Wordpress must use a different character set than the board software. It's a nuisance, but it doesn't seem to have an easy fix.

"Of all faces those of our familiares are the ones both most difficult to play fantastic tricks with, and most difficult really to see with fresh attention. They have become like the things which once attracted us by their glitter, or their colour, or their shape, and we laid hands on them, and then locked them in our hoard, acquired them, and acquiring ceased to look at them.
Creative fantasy, because it is mainly trying to do something else [make something new], may open your hoard and let all the locked things fly away like cage-birds. The gems all turn into flowers or flames, and you will be warned that all you had (or knew) was dangerous and potent, not really effectively chained, free and wild; no more yours than they were you."

Yeah I've noticed that [In reply to] Can't Post

It's annoying, as it makes extra work for you guys. Every time there's an update in Wordpress I keep hoping it'll fix the problem. Maybe one day Unsure

I cheated [In reply to] Can't Post

I did not go deleting those manually.

I just opened up Kel's post in 'edit' mode, copied the text of the entire post, and pasted it in a Word document. Then I used Word's "Replace" feature, replacing that garbage 'A' character with a space. And I then copy-pasted the whole thing back in the post box Laugh

I was kind of hoping that, once we reach some kind of critical mass, it would be like a party ice breaker... get conversation flowing (about the covers) and excitement building. :-)

I did the same. [In reply to] Can't Post

I didn't look at them all, though. I was thinking it would be fun to do a list of which numbers people are using, so if people wanted to choose new ones they would know which hadn't been "taken" yet. I am considering rotating mine, just so more of them get seen...
