I'm a fan of the new page. I'll try to be more active now :)

When I attempt to copy & paste inside of quote tags, it's blank like this:

No, I can replicate it.



If I copy any text then manually add the quote tag, paste the text and close the tag, it's gives a blank quote.

My track record starts with two number 0's, then the real counting starts. Didn't see it mentioned anywhere in this thread yet.

Yeah. My track record counting is all messed up too. I have a whole bunch of 0's then it counts even numbers only up to 402 (I'm pretty sure I entered somewhere in the low 300's).

Are you typing the quote tags, or are you using the " button on the text box? Truth be told, I'm surprised it's even there. :) What browser do you use?

If you rank (not rate... but numerically rank) your track record, anything you add automatically starts at the top. If you go to edit the ranking, then save it, it'll give them all proper numbers, but keep in mind that the thing at the top will be #1.

I just tried changing ratings, JW... what browser are you using?

I'm typing out the quote tag manually, pasting the copied text (earlier it was from the RCT3D article) and typing the close tag manually.

I use Chrome.

Not that it's a big deal, how often does one really quote like that? Just something I noticed.

I quote like that pretty often if there's something I want to post from another site. In fact I just quoted you, but copy/pasted the text and manually typed the quote tags. Firefox 11.

Ah, so you were pasting from another site? You can't "see" it, but there might be some kind of naughty HTML on the other site that gets filtered out. What I'd do is select it here in the text editor, and then click the little eraser button. That should clear out weirdness. Hopefully.

Let's me try a couple of experiments.

Copied from RCT3D article and pasted:



Copied from the article and eraser buttoned:

RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D is the story of a man who doesn't have time for his son. Well, OK, that sounds a bit melodramatic – but it's accurate, at least, as the game opens with an eager young teenager getting the brush-off from his old man. He dreams of being a thrill ride designer. A theme park architect. A rollercoaster tycoon, of course – and it seems like he's set up well to realize those dreams, too, since his father happens to be employed in that very field.

Copied and pasted from your post:



EDIT - Ok, so it looks like I need to eraser button everything I paste. Cool.

My mistake on Track Record... I was trying to change the rating from my profile page.

Yay! I actually manually copy/paste a lot in my responses when I want to quote someone. It's a lot easier when there's a big post from which I only want a small piece...especially if that post is already quoting someone. I've never had luck with copy/paste in the past and have always needed to retype in order to get things to display.

This makes me happy.

Nice updates on the website - looks very clean, and organized, much "lighter" feeling, if you get what I mean. Any thoughts on updating the CoasterBuzz logo? *Graphic Designer, here : )

I love Buzzy. You'll never get me to replace him. :)

For the designer types, you might be able to tell that I've been heavily influenced by the "Metro" look of Windows Phone, Xbox, the forthcoming Windows 8 and various Web sites. Plus, stuff loads faster when you don't have to send gradients and textures down the pipe!

So, a gradient and texture person. I see how it is.

I was thinking more about iOS. Don't get me wrong, I have lots of shiny aluminum stuff, I've just moved to a simpler user experience look.
