    Exclamation Those Doggone Ellipses

    Those Doggone Ellipses
    cooltext515866788.jpgYou know them, right? Those dad-burned dots that many of us use in every other sentence?

    Well, here at SHS we must keep them in their place. The vBulletin forum software that we use does not appreciate ellipses in thread titles. In fact, it takes so much offense that it will basically lock us out of threads that use ellipses.

    So, in your posts, ellipses are fine, wonderful, super, and great........................

    SEE?

    But in thread titles, they are a no-no. Kapish???

    the used to cause really bad problems in the forum. If you had ellipses in the title, unless someone had posted on the first page of the post, they couldnt get to the second page - it would tell them they didnt have privileges to see that page. It was a bug in the forum software, not a setting made by this forum.

    but I kinda think the bug has been fixed, because someone did an ellipse post a few mo ago and no one seemed to have trouble with it
