We used to have an option in the permissions called "can always comment" that allowed us to let mods comment through locks on threads. Can we get that back? It's a real pain to have to unlock a thread, speak, and re-lock.

How feasible is a private message box? I think one of the reasons rule-breakers become so belligerent might be simply because they're being disciplined in the open for all to see. It's also unpleasant to watch.

Having been a mod at MTGS, Rusty, I don't believe that for a second.

Sure, I'm probably wrong about that. But it's still very unpleasant to watch. A sad 'frowny'

Weird symbols now work in [card] tags

Fix:
[c][/c] The forum was seeing this as a <td> tag, which messed up the forum layout badly

I did try out the [c][/c] tag, but it doesn't seem to work.

[c]Plains[/c]
[c]1996 World Champion[/c]
[c]Circle of Protection: White[/c]
[c]Darien, King of Kjeldor[/c]
[c]Abu Ja'far[/c]
[c]Question Elemental?[/c]

By the way, the card tag works for all of the cards shown above.

[c] was never the same thing as the [card] tag. But before it used to break the forum, now it just does nothing.

OK... maybe I'm just used to MtGS. Stick out your tongue (on MtGS, it does the same thing as the [card] tag).

Is there any way to change my default message input format? (I cannot find anything like that in my account settings)

Also, maybe there should be some kind of <sym> tag to allow symbols in Documentation input mode, so that you can type <sym>1UU</sym> to insert mana symbols while still having smileys disabled normally in Documentation input mode.

No, there is no way to change your default message input format. Default input formats are set on a content type basis, not on a per user basis.

Whenever you made a post before, you were able to edit and delete it easily if it was still the most recent post. You can still edit your most recent post, but the option to delete is gone. It would be really nice if that came back, so that users can delete their own double post when they accidentally hit submit twice (which just happened to me yesterday).
