Phos, or someone, can you please edit the thread title, as I cannot even see the updated post notices to click my way, with one click, to the last message posted.

It's pretty annoying!

EXACTLY!

There's no way that what I did in the first post should break stuff so badly that it kills the experience.

BTW...I had no idea that the title I started with would bust up the forum so badly. I just wanted to find out how many characters were allowed in the "subject" field. (It's 255, in case anybody's wondering.)

After you posted thast first reply, I couldn't go back and change the title.

And I HATE that we're locked out of editing our own replies in a thread after someone has replied to it.

In the WebX forums, I'll bet I've gone back to edit 75-80% of the posts I made—for clarity, spelling, grammar, stuff like that— often after subsequent posts had been made.

Hmm...

255 characters might NOT be the "Subject" field limit.

I just counted the characters in the example thread I posted a screen shot of, above.

It has 256 characters.

Heh... I was just adding a note to my first post about how a thread title like that breaks the formatting when you replied.

It serves as an example of one more thing that should have been tested, and fixed, before they opened the barn door.

Seriously, there's no call at all for something like that to happen. I didn't want to pile on, but I have to agree with what others have been saying, that Jive and this forum platform is an amateur piece of work. I sure hope Adobe didn't enter into any sort of long-term contract with them, or that there are clauses that allow them to break the contract if the software doesn't perform the way it should.

Thanks, "host!"

I couldn't fix it.

And it's pretty dang funny/stupid that the asterisks replacing "f r i g g i n ' " show up in the thread index, but the actual ::cough:: 'bad' ::cough:: word appears everywhere else.

I swear, the evidence of amateurishness keep coming out of the woodwork the more we notice how these forums perform.

Lamerz!
