No matter how often I save my profile, it doesn't seem to let me choose anything other than standard font size and colour Sad

This makes me a sad panda.

Because one man's mundane and desperate existence is another man's Technicolor.

Try changing the colour and size again and save it more than once.

I have no idea why I'm in the chat room twice, but one of us needs to go.

Any suggestions?

That reminds me!

A few blips since the colours arrived. We have realised that the people who cannot change their text colour and size are those whose names appear in the user list more than once. The other night it was Boz, Talkie and someone else.
A smaller blip... Occasionally lines of text appear twice. Not a massive problem, but strange since it only started happening after the personalisations.
Lastly, there used to be a message appear to let the room know when a user had left. This doesn't happen any more. It's easy to find yourself talking to someone who is no longer there.

There may have been something else I was supposed to report, but I forget what.

Something i would like to see return to the board is the old pageing system. Only a handful of people would remember this one.. It would have been around in the extremely old days of the board. Say, 2001? That is indeed how long I have been here. But the page thing was awesome.

The instant PMs that would pop up on the screen? They existed on the forum until the change to the new format in 2009. They were also awful and very limited.

But at least I knew when I received a page, unlike the PMs of this forum. I had some really fun conversations using the page function. Mostly when I was at college/uni and couldn't access the chatroom. I needed my daily Jen fix Smile

I think there needs to be some kind of indicator when a PM has been received. Sometimes whole weeks have passed without me realising that there was a private message waiting for me. Nowadays I always make sure to check every so often.

I get emails when I get a PM. I don't know why you don't - could be that either the address you're registered with is out of date, or they're going to your spam folder?

However, if we can introduce a displayed number of unread messages at the top of the screen, that would be useful. I'll see if it's possible.

I do receive emails when I get a PM, but I don't open my email account all that often.

My registered email isn't my main email address so I don't get them.
