    For a second there, I was trying to figure out why you were calling that smiley "colon-slayer". I thought there must be some inside-SF Conne/Ed joke I'd missed.

    I thought this was some type of (not so) veiled reference to the "dump" post...

    I just couldn't figure out another way to write it. Maybe this works: : slayer :

    How is HarryMerkin, aka the most transparent troll in the history of messageboards, not banned yet?

    HarryMerkin!? What a hilarious name.

    My grandfather once explained what a merkin was by describing it as "a piece of woodchuck fur on a cork."

    Well all of his posts suddenly disappeared, so I would assume so. He doesn't take hints particularly well it would seem. Even stranger, he introduced himself in the introduction thread again, and filled out his profile with far more detail than I've ever seen. He's completely oblivious to all discussion forum norms.

    Yes, I talked to him about not necroposting 100 threads.

    His posts were few and somewhat funny. If it really becomes a problem he will of course disappear.

    It looks like the emoticon collection has shifted. Before when I'd reply to a post, the dozen or so immediately available icons included my favorites [​IMG] and [​IMG] . Now to use these I have to click on [more] and wait for the full page to load up.....

    I'm not sure what happened but in order to fix the smilie list position I would have to go through and number them all in the order I want them to appear. Every time I add a new one it changes the order seemingly randomly. I am too lazy to do this ordering thing, but I can make a few more appear all the time and maybe that will help.

    Pretty much all of them get used at times. If I delete one, it will show a red x everywhere it used to be.

    I see you disabled the arrow and top hat thread labels.

    I've been getting the "server busy" messages occasionally.

    Could this possibly have to do with my internet connection, and speed (wireless & roadrunner)?

    It seemed I didn't get a frozen screen or "server busy" message when I used a PC wired to a modem.

    So, does your connection type and speed effect your connection to SF?

    They're there for me... ?

    I just adjusted the load limit. If it keeps happening I'll talk to the server people. Sometimes scheduled tasks take things over, especially for some reason the every day updating of the antivirus for the server. I thought I had them move it to an off peak time but I'll have to check.

    See in the lower right corner there are three icons that are segregated from the rest (the open mouth, the arrow and the top hat). I'm not able to select them.

    That's weird that they are off the edge in that screenshot. They don't look like that on my browser. Have you tried it in IE or FF? Maybe it happened when I added another column of smilies.

    It's like v-chip. Someone decided you're not ready for that level of sartorial maturity.
