Post twisting bug
Sometimes when you post on a thread, you notice that your post has been "twisted" so it's above the post of the person who last posted. It's to do with the forum coding; cuz it hasn't been updated.

The only way that I know of to fix this is as follows (suggested by Wolfie):

1. Check the time of the last post on the thread. Example; say the last person who posted on the thread was Elanorea and she made her post at 12:32pm. You should view all posts posted as being in your own standard time, whatever that is; mine just happens to be GMT.

2. Check the time on your computer clock. Example; my clock says 12:30pm.

3. Wait til your clock shows a time past the time of the previous person's post. Example; I wait til my computer clock says 12:33pm, before I make my post. It doesn't twist, cuz the forum recognises it as having been made after Elanorea's, not before.

Also, don't post at, say 12:32; actually wait for the 33 minute time, for even if you post yours at the "same time" as the other person's post, yours will show up before the other person's. I know from experience, sadly.

Read something else online, watch a youtube video while you wait; that's what I do.

xD it's happening right now with the rp section, apologies from me if I'm causing you to wait.

That's why I'm taking so long to reply; I'm waiting it out. XD

At least we get a good few replies in every hour or so xD

Well, the bug is getting worse or Elanorea has figured out how to time travel. It says her last activity(and she is online) was at 6:18PM... its only 6:06PM. That's a pretty big discrepancy. Clearly the lack of updates is causing this issue.

Bear wrestling AND time travel? Clearly, Elanorea is full of win. XD

It's really annoying when RPing; I end up having to wait til at least five minutes has gone by before posting, sometimes.

I wait until two minutes after tha last person's post time. Like, if Miranda made a post at 5:15 my time, I won't post until 5:17 at least.

Don't blame Elanorea, I time travel too.

Keep your eyes open for a blood-crazed hun, please. :lol:

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 08:49 AM.
