    @Ariana

    Thanks, you've eased my concerns!

    It's very likely the connection, now that you've suggested it. It's 'satellite broadband', which sounds great but... isn't.

    Thanks again.

    Ariana,
    my brother and I work at the same place, which allows us to surf the internet while working. He wants to register an account here, but we both were recently banned from another forum for this kinda bullshit. So I thought I'd ask you if he could register an account here, since I can't seem to find another place to ask. Sorry if this destroys the thread.

    We've got a few two-users-one-IP around Whitechapel, so that's not a problem. But if "bullshit" means more than that, we may have a problem. Refer carefully to the rules for details, and proceed as necessary.

    out of curiousity, the bacon thread isnt officially closed, yet it has the notation that it has been inactive for 5 days and doesnt want to be resurrected. ive never seen that on this board before- is it something that happens anytime a thread is inactive that long? i swear ive seen older threads get drudged up.

    Zoo threads have a rolling sell-by date. If no-one's been interested in 5+ days, they quietly go to sleep.

    I like that the Whitechapel Market has been changed to Whitechapel Chatroom; easy for people to find.

    Ariana, can I ask what's happening with Newskrusher?
    Sorry - just found the bit on the Reboot thread where Warren said we're taking a week off.

    I know I'm a moron, my wife keeps telling me so, but I can't seem to get the "quote" feature to work. Can you enlighten me?

    When you hit the "quote" button, you get the html tag for a blockquote. Then you can paste in the text you want to quote, and hit the button again to get a closing tag. It should look a little like this in the input window:
    <blockquote>This is where I can paste text. For instance: "I know I'm a moron, my wife keeps telling me so, but I can't seem to get the "quote" feature to work. Can you enlighten me? "</blockquote>

    Then, when you post, it'll look like this:
    This is where I can paste text. For instance: I know I'm a moron, my wife keeps telling me so, but I can't seem to get the "quote" feature to work. Can you enlighten me?

    If, when you post, you're just getting the blockquote tags showing, like this:

    <blockquote>This is where I can paste text. For instance: "I know I'm a moron, my wife keeps telling me so, but I can't seem to get the "quote" feature to work. Can you enlighten me? "</blockquote>

    Then you need to make sure the little button under the input box is selecting "html" not "text".

    I would just like to make an official apology for the past...oh...I dunno...how long has Whitechapel been here now? I think I joined within the first day or so...anyway...back to the point...I apologize that for this time period I have been under the influence of a sick psychiatrist who wanted to test various different anti-depressants on me. I've quit now, am on the tail end of horrible withdraw symptoms, and I think I might have regained a portion of my mind. I'm sorry if I've been a yammering twit since i've been here. I'll do better, i swear. :P

    No so's you'd notice...I mean, compared to the majority of Whitechapellers, you're downright normal.

    lol...what's crazy, is that I just quit a message board because I was too strange for the majority of the people there...even the owner rose up against me...go figure...
    I don't have a reliable perspective on how people perceive my particular brand of insanity... I thought I'd just make it known that I try not to be too retarded and annoying..

    Yeah, strange is good, or at least interesting. How boring would it be if we were all normal?

    Any suggestions on how to embed from Vimeo? The usual tricks aren't working

    I don't remember if I ever made us Vimeo friendly, Rachel. Link for now, and I will look into it, um, at some point...

    Hey folks. I'm new here and desperately trying to post an entry for this "Woman with a black heart" I've been looking around and can't find why it doesn't work. I click on the image button, copy and paste my link, add a description, and it doesn't show up on the preview or the forum. HEEEEELPPPP! :)


    I've tried linking to my site (rcdraws.carbonmade.com) and my deviant art page (http://magikmarker16.deviantart.com/art/The-woman-with-the-Black-Heart-116526676). Anyone see my mistake or have a suggestion? I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks!
