• We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :) Please help by posting all issues here.

For the past couple of weeks, any time I try to reply to a post, the system appears to ignore my space bar on the first line. I end up having to type a couple of words, then advance to the next line and start the post for real.

It's only ocdo; it's only on replies. That suggests it's not my system.

Anyone else experiencing this?

I'm experiencing it but only on PMs in the forum while on a standard desktop type computer not via the smart phone

You don't need to know what kind of device or tool was used to send this

I'm having a similar problem, but only with PMs!

I use a desktop computer, btw.

Occassionally have the same problem.

Cure it by clicking on Preview Post and then editing.

Thought it was just me - will report it to John.

As I said previously, I have the problem with PMs, but now I see what people are talking about when quoting posts...

Regarding posts: if I don't hit carriage return :)D) at the end of the QUOTE line, and instead just use the mouse to go down to the line for typing, the problem shows up there too.
