The behavior of the new buttons hasn't changed.
Jeff Bezos has billions to spend on rockets and can go at whatever pace he likes! Wow! What pace is he going at? Well... have you heard of Zeno's paradox?

I am not upset with anyone, but can someone please tell me how I can obtain a forum signature? I am fairly new here (and I am an astronomy nut) so if I am accidentally doing anything wrong, then I apologize.

Welcome!  Click "Profile" in the second line of headings at the top of the page, and then "Modify Profile" > "Forum Profile".  You can then add personal information and a signature.

Is it just me or is the forum clock ahead by some 2 minutes or so?

HA! I thought it was just my PC! That'll be a yes then!

I'll see if we can find the key so we can wind it up again ;D

I figured that since we're often reporting liftoff times to within a millisecond around here, we might as well do better with forum time :D

The forum time seems to be off by an hour! I checked my time-zone offset, and that's correct, but at the time of posting this - it's 2125 IST, and the Forum time should read 1555 (if it's indeed in UTC) - but it's showing 1455




Also, while I'm at it, merging a second paragraph of a draft post into the preceding paragraph changes the font size of the hitherto second paragraph. This WYSIWYG editor doesn't offer a font size change, although the clear-formatting button works.

As has been explained a number of times, the forum timeZONE is not off. You have to ensure it's detected per your location in "PROFILE - LOOK AND LAYOUT".

That is why your post shows the right time to me.

Sorry.. I guess I should've gone through the thread.
I did check my look and layout section, but I mistakenly assumed that the offset I was supposed to put in, was just the offset of the local time zone from UTC - since I'd expected the default forum time zone to be UTC. But I now realise that its currently UTC-01:00 (Azores, Cape Verde or Greenland!?)


Is the default time going to jump around with daylight savings? That would mean that those of us in locations that don't observe it would have to change their offsets when it does. <Groan> Not that it's a problem.

Yeah, I think you have to manually do that when the time changes. I did for the UK change.

It's 10 seconds of your day, twice a year, so not too bad! :)

Now for Mark to sort out that three minutes offset.....

Quick question.  Trying to do live coverage, the first time you click "Browse" to add an attachment, a window opens for you to select.  After that, it won't allow me to open it any other time making it harder to do that.

Google Chrome ver 31.0.1650.57, also happens with the latest FireFox.  Cannot replicate it on IE 10 (meaning it works properly).  Seems like it is a system specific issue rather than a forum issue, but just wanted to confirm.

I think after you edit a poll you lose certain options?

Im sure I started this poll with people able to change their votes, but I can't see that option anymore. I expect this happened after I added a new option. Ideally I would be able to add new options as they appear and remove the least popular of the old ones, and keep the vote changeable.

Thread for your feedback!

The layout has HUGE empty left and right margins.
As in: most of the screen width goes unused.

See attached screenshot. This is on Firefox 23.0.1.

You have widescreen monitor? I don't have that on a 4:3 Dell Ultrasharp.

I saved a thread page locally and looked at resulting .html file.
Found this fragment:

<!-- Tapatalk Detect banner body end -->
        <div id="page_wrapper">
                <div id="wrapper" style="width: 1080px">
<header>


Deleted   style="width: 1080px"   thing, saved the file and reloaded the file. The blue left/right margins are now gone.

That's just you. I'm sure someone will find a solution to whatever your browser is doing wrong.

This is what it looks like for everyone else....

First, update to 25.0.1, second, ad-blocker ?
