    This is probably aimed at Costello again, being the techie, but could you alter the PM system to have BBCode used in the formatting rather than HTML? I'm replying to a PM and seeing as HTML isn't permitted for someone of my rank, the visible code is just making the message look ugly.

    Given your promotion, my guess would be that it's not as much of a problem for you now?

    This is a known issue, sorry for the inconvenience, hopefully it'll get sorted soon, I think Costy's working on it.

    No, I meant it's unparsed, aka like you see it
    Also, I can't use HTML in all sections [​IMG]

    Well, why didn't you say that? [​IMG]

    (Don't worry, I know what unparsed means though [​IMG])

    So mthr, how long has it been known for? I think I remember hearing about something similar before, but I don't know if it was entirely related.

    It's been like this for more than a year IIRC. But I don't really care aobut it anymore, I've gotten used to it.

    I think I noticed it a long time ago, but I didn't PM often so I didn't mind before.
