You may notice some weirdness about the appearance of the forums today. An upgrade to the software is causing odd behavior in the main theme. We'll be working on it, and we apologize for any inconvenience this might cause!

Related to this upgrade is a peculiar problem: you'll note your text box for any new posts is going on forever to the right. No more word wrap.
The solution to this issue is to clear your cache, then reload the page. This should clear that problem right up.

If you're noticing any other issues, please report them here. But please only after clearing your cache and reloading the page, as it might resolve other problems as well.

Some comments within threads seem to be randomly indented to the right.  Comments appear on top of other comments (making the text of both comments all but unreadable).

Edit: Active page within a thread seems to be set to render as black text on a slate background, a horrible color combination, causes halification and is altogether difficult to read.

Remove, quote, and modify no longer render in a line or column.  They appear to be left justified which causes the first two options to appear next to the username and the third to appear at the far left, beneath the username.

It appears to have to do with the "basics" of the forum layout, since different themes are affected the same way.

Although using the "Core" theme seems to look the best at this time.

Right now, it looks like the only theme that didn't get borked in the update is the default "Curve" theme. I'm working on updating the FastJack theme and will hopefully have something by this weekend.

Good. I don't like having Shadowrun and BattleTech looking like the same forum. ;)

Borked.... is that a technical term?  :P

Yes.  It's official designation means:  "The item is broken so badly that the English Language has taken damage."

It was referred to in my Tech Support job for the network providing people with Internet services all the time.  Once, it was borked by Minivan.

Borked:

To have broken something so entirely, you break the words used to describe the item.

Update: The JackPoint theme is working better than the former default, so I'm going to be switching things over.

The quick reply box still extends out to forever ("My God, it's full of stars!"), and I'm looking into a fix for it, but it's kinda late right now. See what I can do tomorrow.

[Edit:] And, Bull, I'll see if I can't put together an Ork Underground theme this weekend that isn't "Pansy-ass Elven Green". ;)
