How does one get access to Omar is Dead..or does that not exist anymore? I was never able to post in there, but it used to be my go to for reading about everything entertainment. Also I don't have access to P&G anymore.

I'm another member who got switched to lurker; would love to get my membership restored. Thanks in advance (and for all the work improving an already stellar site).

If possible, can I get access to "Other Crap". Next week is going to be long and boring and that will help me pass the time.

Trying to finally pay for membership and the thread won't open for me - where do I send my $20?

When you type a post but don't post it, it won't erase. You can delete it, but then it still shows after you hit the back button then re-visit that thread later. It's weird.

You have to delete the draft or erase it and save the blank draft to get rid of it.

The former is done by clicking the floppy disk icon and selecting delete.

Saved drafts are also deleted automatically after a configurable (for the site) amount of time. I think I set it to 48 hours, maybe 72.

Beating a similar drum, longtime non-posting member relegated to lurker status. Would appreciate access to "Other Crap" forums if possible, an account contribution has just been processed. Thanks all.

O wise and mighty SoSH overlords, I am just another humble peon seeking a blessing and access to the sacred fields of P&G.
Thanks in advance.

How are you doing this? Highlight a part of the post and click on the "Reply" option in the bubble that pops up? What browser/OS?
it seems like it happens when I try and use the quote BB code on tapatalk. (like If I want to quote an article

Links aren't appearing in Firefox this morning.. I posted a link in the amazon thread in P&G and this is what I see

edit: to be clear, when I just paste the link into the post, nothing appears. Noticed it with several posts above mine in this thread too. But when I use the link button and give the link a name, then it shows up. Really weird.

I did some stuff to help prevent the 3x a week or so spammy account we've seen with the new software.

However to put it in perspective we get a few thousand attempted spam signups a day, so we're not doing too badly.

Is there a rule now that everyone has to have an avatar? I'd really prefer to, you know, not; but I keep getting assigned one every time I delete it. I'm not gonna fight a losing battle but if this is custom now I'm curious why.

Assign yourself a white square. We go through and assign avatars to people without them when we get drunk or bored, but if you have a blank one we should (at least mostly) leave it alone.

I've been wondering why I couldn't find Omar and the like in P&G. Can I be reinstated?

Thanks for all the work, guys.
