Now when you quote, you won't have hundreds to deal with, just the person you're quoting.

Any other changes you'd like to see?

I'm still working on the warning that someone posted while you were posting crap.

Also changed the edit post wait time, from 90 seconds to 20 sec.
Quote
Number of seconds allowed for a post to be edited before logging the last edit date.

Do you want an indefinite time to edit posts, or a cut off tome allowed, so your opponent can't go back and change what they said?
Right now, it's set to "0", meaning you can edit it a year from now.

I can not see what or where I am typing 1/2 the time.

I've been getting this,"while you were posting,5 other posters posted,you may want to review your post". (or words to that effect)

Thanks for your efforts to correct this.

The nesting elimination should remedy that.

There is a setting you can go in and adjust yourself and turn that off in your Profile I did.

That happens to me, too.  It's usually on a reply when I use the "quote" dealie, but not always.  Is there a limited space available or what?  The blank part of the reply doesn't get visibly larger, but it always seems to accept what I type.  It's disconcerting.

Just the bugs that have to get worked out, I guess.  Thanks for asking!!!

At the top right hand page of every post I have made are three buttons:
1.quote
2.modify
3.remove

I have only noticed the first two on all the other posts.Why are my posts the only ones I see with the REMOVE button and a red checkmark?

Because you have the ability to remove your posts while other people do not.  ;)
If you believe big government is the solution then you are a liberal. If you believe big government is the problem then you are a conservative.

That could be the problem.  All the Quotes.  Thanks for adjusting that setting.  It should help us all. 

Remember people need to go in and adjust all there Profile areas as need

I have looked and don't seem to be able to find that setting.

Everyone is able to remove their own posts. Not other people's posts. Only admins can remove other people's posts.

Click on Profile and it will open your Profile page.  On that page you will see Profile Info, next to it is a Modify Profile highlight it and drop down to look and layout, click on look and layout then go in and adjust as need.  (don't forget to save your changes or you will have to go back and do all over.
