Anything Goes / Re: Cutstuff Sanctuary

Those of you who have struggled with this before and won this battle, or never had trouble with it at all: please, what do I do? How do I get over this slump of thinking that I've worked hard only to find out that I've not even scratched the surface of what's called effort? How do I go from failing nearly all of my classes to making straight A's? Why am I asking YOU all of these questions?
Mermaid Man, where are you?!?

No freaking clue. I started studying for a B.Sc. in CS and just dropped out after 2-3 semesters, because of things similar to what you described.

So I did something like (I live in Germany, things are kind of different here) an https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apprenticeship as a programmer instead (which I recently finished, yay!).

I already had a diploma that was roughly associate's degree level, though.

EDIT: I guess not having any loans and such helped. A semester cost like, what, $200 where I studied?

Apparently something SEGA-related.

I had to turn the custom fields off temporarily because people were writing huge ones that were bleeding into the posts and that's no good. I'll see if I can bring it back later.

Maybe you could add something like
Code: [Select]
word-wrap: break-word;
to the CSS of whatever theme we end up using for that field of the side bar? That way we could also increase the limit again without any text intruding into the post area. (Makes you wonder why this theme doesn't have something that elementary to web design though ...)

It seems like avatars only work if the hosting URL has http and not https. That's kind of annoying.

EDIT: It looks like the same thing might apply to posts. I guess getting that fixed might save the art threads?

Search seems to be quite iffy. When using "Search in topic subjects only" it often doesn't return any results, even when using words that most definitely appeared in titles - like "general" or "Roboenza".

I'd like to have strikethrough and underline in the editor.

Additionally, the first button in the second row of the editor has no tooltip description:

What does it do?

23
You know what's misleading? The "<< previous next >>" links at the top and bottom of each page of a thread. They don't take you to the next page of a multi-page thread; no, they take you to completely different threads.
Didn't old Cutstuff have that, too?

EDIT: Apparently not. But I've encountered those buttons quite a few times on other forums before.

Users with certain symbols in their usernames will be unable to log in, ever. I will allow a name change for these users. Contact me via e-mail (admin @ cutstuff . net without spaces) or @cutmanmike on twitter with your old username and desired new username if this applies to you.

Wow, am I lucky. Plenty of forum software doesn't seem to like *s.

Metconst's SMF is still much sexier than this one.   8)
