    Another thing is I cannot use my cursor to place the emoji where I want, it always ends up at the beginning of the text.

    Why is it that anything I post shows up as a single paragraph, regardless of how many separate paragraphs I wrote?

    8 guests lurking, there was more than that lurking at 1:00 AM CST on almost any given day on the previous Forum(s). IT guys should be on here working this out with a thread instead of Wambli being the middle man.

    I looked at that number regularly on the older versions, it was rarlely below 100 except after the bars closed.

    Without an  average over time, it means  Dee eye see kay. 
    One week VS 10 plus years? 
    Statistically insignificant.

    Lick your finger and stick it in the air, which way is the wind blowing............

     Maybe G&A should do a feature.

     All new and improved shiny forum, nice friendly folk, lots of really good jokes.

    Also, the data is flawed/skewed compared to the previous forum. Unless you change it, it defaults to your online status being displayed. So now it may show members as being online, where before it may have shown guest.

    I don't think it was an average, it was how many lurkers were online at the moment, it would change in real time. There is what looks to me like a number next to the registered users online that is the lurkers currently looking at the forum or is that an incorrect assessment?

    So am I considered a guest? Or am I not counted at all? I have no idea. But yet....I'm still online. 
     And with crap data, there's no telling what's  accurate. 
    Not that it matters to anyone here personally anyway. No one has money invested. No ones getting a pay check. If the place fails because the lurkers quit lurking, it fails. No skin off of anyone's ball sack

    And you won't see me. I have my status hidden. Which is why I asked, am included in the "guest" list? Or simply not shown at all? There could be HUNDREDS of people viewing this forum, and you would never know, if their status is hidden and not included in the "guest" list.

    There’s a glitch with the formatting in Chrome for mobile.  Text in posts overruns the box on the right side, into the ad spaces and menu.  

    This also happens with IE, but only occasionally.

    The previous version showed anyone that was or is on the forum during a 30 minute window or so. I think this new one shows it only in real time.

    On my PC, it is on the far right after you scroll down a bit.
