It seems to be working (at least I can see all my messages from all the forums). :)

John,

I don't have any private messages but:

Uplink in Moderation > "Simply uplink" Goto page 1

has some word wrap trouble.
Or maybe it's my Mozilla Firefox? Other pages wrap okay.
Are you the only one fixing/improving this board?

I sure do have fun with the game and this board.

That's caused by codename's sig. It contains an unbroken string which cannot be wrapped since there is no break. It's not a problem with the forum really. :)

It should have filters to prevent that kind of thing in fairness, stews..

I don't know that I have ever seen a forum with such a filter. The major problem would be filtering out long strings from the long strings that result from HTML formating. I don't think it would all that difficult just some regex's but it is not really a problem and moderators need something to do anyway. :)

I'm sure NeoThermic could do it if he puts his mind to it :)

Right, more CSS to the rescue, I hope. Very long unbreakable strings are now chopped in the Uplink theme. I could provide a scrollbar if this is preferred.

Did you just limit the width of the table to the screen-size? That works nicely though it might limit pictures on screen shot threads, but that's probably not such a bad thing. :)

The board is fixed and tested:

You guys are good! Even when "lounging around".
Still, I kinda miss the glowing, pulsating blue dots in here.

Of course, since I'm one of your customers, just beware:

You are incorrect, sir. There are 10 types of people in the world: those that understand binary, and those that don't.

Heh, that's not in the CSS, but whatever.

Just a note that the overflow style is a bit buggy. I think hidden works ok in most modern browsers, but scroll can cause some issues. :)
