Ok.. first bug... it appears that when trying to 'quote' a message it will bring you back to the login screen - then relog-on and you can post again..

Ventrical, that does not do the same as finding all threads started by me. I guess it will be fixed soon. I remember when we first went to the new forum format it did the same with that same feature.
Must be something they can easily fix though.

That basically picked the wrong user name and used my usual username as my full name and greyed out the check mark so I can't fix it.

Ask an admin or mod. They should be able to undo it for you (I hope).

Do you people have any idea how many links come back to the Ubuntu Forums when you use a search engine to help fix a Linux problem. For a while there I thought the internet (or at least 60% of it) had died. Congrats and thanks to all involved in getting the forum back up and running... awesome job folks.

Is there a way to stay logged in (until i manually log out) like the way it use to work? Or has it been changed that you have to always log in again after being away from the forum pages for a while?

Was just curious...Thanks :)
