So, I just clicked on a "quote" button. Up popped a dialog box:

Is this still going on? It sounds like thewebdrives playing around with stuff temporarily trying to fix something.

Also, in general, if something is a little weird, I'd recommend waiting a few hours and seeing if it still goes on. He might be fiddling with stuff but is likely to restore everything fairly quickly, so only consistent issues are likely to be real problems.

Thanks.

OK, no worries. I tend to try to report stuff like this early to avoid a potential cluster F. I'll slow down next time.

Why not just copy the vBulletin code to a different directory and work from there so that you don't disrupt the board?

Just wondering.

I second that, in my company we have an environment called test, we modify the code there and test the results. Once we're satisfied everything is going to work, we roll it into production. No need to start developing code on a live database which can cause problems for the user community.

When they say that, it's because your junk is tiny and they are trying to protect your precious feelings.

There is nothing more masculine than something so big that it causes great discomfort to the woman you love

I've never seen women or gay men get excited over the prospect of a small penis.

Size doesn't matter as long as you love someone or have a crush on someone. If love fades away though ... then, well then everything becomes realistic again. No different with guys and their breast preferences.

Breast? I think you'd compare penis size with vagina size. Lots of guys dump girls because, well you put a 747 in a grand canyon and even it will look small.

This most often occurs in women. Usually preceded by the phrase "that Doofy bloke is so gargantuan that I'll be glad to get back to small penis so it doesn't feel like I'm sitting on the Empire State Building during the canoodlings". True story that.

The phrase on the streets of St. Pauli is "wie'n Würstchen in 'ne Turnhalle werfen" - like throwing a Wiener into a gym.

You've just smashed my illusions. It's not "throw a sausage up the autobahn"?

There are many different versions. I like the grand canyon one best.

And what would any thread be without your verbal masturbation?

What are you talking about? The forum is FULL of Everyone's "verbal masturbation" Including yours!

That is what forums are for. A collection of verbal masturbations.

Some are for the person themselves, and some are for the voyeurs.
