thanks for deleting my plain-text password

Thanks Matt, for deleting my previous password-revealing eQuill post.

I think I've refined the problem more though. In the whois microsoft.com thread (too lazy to link) while previewing the comments I have in a blockquote, the formatting is off in much the same way as the ul block I linked to.

Basically, the layout was broken after the blockquoted area, and the text started flush to the left of my window. While it doesn't actually effect the final posting, perhaps there's missing close cell tags in the preview or something?

Bug: You aint' all th@

minor bug: The @ in an email address shows as a url encoded %40 in a user's profile page. The link works okay, it just looks weird.

Putting HTML tags in a post works in preview, but not in the actual post

I wanted an HTML tag to appear in my post, so I typed ampersand-lt-semicolon and ampersand-gt-semicolon for the karats. Looked fine in preview, but they got converted to karats -- and therefore invisible comments -- for the post.

Log-in issues with MF and MT

Just today, MF, but not MT, *does* think I'm logged in, but does *not* fill in the password field on my posting pages automatically. W98/NS4.7x and it's been working ok up til now. Not having the password there, incidentally, preview's you through to a preview page *without* your posting at the bottom; no apparent error message.

The Day the Login Died

The Day the Login Died: for some reason, this afternoon I had to login today again after months of happy not-having-to-rmember-my-password. Has this happened to anyone else? Netscape Navigator 4.08 on the Mac, if that matters. Is this a Metafilter problem, or a browser problem?

Indent after post bug

Matt, after Skallas's post on Symantec charging for virus updates, the entries indent another indent's worth. Still not sure what causes that...

No place to post comment

I'm using IE 4.5 for the mac, and I get this strange bug whenever I hit "... comments".

It happens like this:
The first time that I come to Metafilter on a particular day, if I click on "... comments" next to a post that someoen has put up, I get the various comments, and everything is normal up until the password form. In it, there's a bunch of "" tags, and stuff like that, and instead of having the normal form to post your comment in, I get some weird error (I'd post it, but I'm not getting the error now).

I can fix the problem if I delete my "password" cookie, so I imagine it's related to that somehow. I hope you can fix it =).

I can't get user info when I'm previewing a comment

I can't get user info when I'm previewing a comment. After I enter a comment and hit preview, I've tried twice (2 different threads) to click on a users name (opening the link in a new window) and both times I got a 404 Error. The URL I end up trying to use looks like this http://www.metafilter.com/contribute/user.cfm?user_ID=993

Page display on IE 5 for Mac (June 2000)

The floating 'other blogs' palette does not work well at all in MSIE 5.0/Mac. When the home page first loads, it shows up on the left side of the page, obliterating much of the text of the links. Only when the page is finished loading does it move to its proper place on the right side.

Then, when paging up and down, the palette only draws down to about halfway through the "kottke" link. Yuck.

Stuck logged in on MetaTalk.

D'oh - I just noticed it's not easy (actually, it's not possible) to log out of metatalk. Sorry about that, I'll dig in and see what the problem is this weekend.

MeTa: "Back" link working logically but not helpfully.

The returned URL from a MetaTalk comment posting is not identical to the page from which you posted it, which means that "Back" takes you back to the comment page with the filled in form, rather than back to the parent page, a feature I'd always rather liked...

You need to set your time-of-day clock

You need to set your time-of-day clock; you're seven hours off.

Tossed into metatalk again

Bug's still there... if you hit "post a topic" from a comments page, it tosses you into metatalk. I almost did it again. Doh.
