Forums - Website Topics - The reply and quotation system is overly buggy.

Hey, so I've been trying to get a rather lengthy reply to Pemalite out for a few days now. The reply system is just overly buggy, making formulating a long reply on this site like pulling teeth. Anyway here are the bugs I've encountered...

1. When copy/pasting the site automatically pastes something twice in a row. Such as...

This is what I mean.This is what I mean.

When copying and pasting quotations for a long detailed reply this normally wouldn't be an issue, but...

2. If you highlight and delete what you just copied and pasted, your entire post gets deleted. So if you were to highlight the second "This is what I mean." and then hit the delete key, your entire post gets deleted. Same goes for the backspace key. 

3. The site frequently does not respond from the enter key, after copying and pasting. You have to hit Shift + Enter to get the site to respond. But this messes up the scrolling feature of the site, forcing your to manually scroll by dragging the scrolling bar with the mouse. 

4. When making lists that do not have doublespacing by hitting shift + Enter you are sometimes locked out of using the space key. So you get things typed like this....

What OS and browser are you using?

I've only experienced #4 but that's an issue with almost all WYSIWYG text editors.

Regarding point 4, there's no randomness to it. You can create spaces for the first two lines, but for the third line onwards you can't anymore. That's why I type one long sausage for my lists and only afterwards move the cursor to the appropriate places and hit Shift+Enter. Alternatively, the Quick Reply box has no such limitations, so when you do not absolutely need the Rich Text, you can type normally there.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Chrome and Windows 7. I post a lot at work and use my at home downtime for playing games. My boss knows I post and is okay with it, because I still do my actual job.

Anyway, I guess I'll have to save long winded quote heavy replies for weekends from now on.

Yeah. Sometimes I type my whole post on a note app. Then I just copy and paste it to vgchartz. It's extra work but it's a lot less frustrating.

I did the same thing yesterday. I was trying to reply to someone on my mobile phone, and there was an ad blocking my view of the text that I was writing. The ad itself didn't market something I was particularly interested in.
