"Broken Thread" Megathread (read OP before reporting)

Postby Frisbeeteria » Sun Apr 08, 2018 8:15 am

Please restrict comments in this thread to people reporting posts and moderators (or OPs) reporting them fixed.
You can link to the specific post where the problem is occuring by right-clicking the Image icon at the top right of the post, next to the Author's name.

We get a lot of individual reports on so-called Broken Threads, where something screwy happens to the thread formatting. This is invariably caused by mis-nested tags and careless or overly complicated formatting. This can occur either in the post itself, or in the forum signature of the poster (or preceding poster).

If it's your post that's causing the problem, look over it carefully yourself and fix it. If you've got one of those massive RP declarations with lots of quotes, tables, boxes, and spoilers, you've got a much better shot at fixing it easily than we do. You know what it's supposed to say, so you should deal with it.

It's worth noting that different browsers reflect the broken tags in different ways. For instance, Chrome is very picky about these failures. Firefox is more forgiving. Just because I don't see it on my browser doesn't mean it isn't broken.

Here's what properly nested tags are supposed to look like:
Examplestan wrote:Previously posted content

Centered Title
A bunch of content with a
  • bulleted
  • list
Subtest under a spoiler

More stuff that's very important to you for whatever reason.

Something like a signature or seal or whatever majestic image you feel the need to share


Code: Select all
[quote="Examplestan"]Previously posted content[/quote]
[box][align=center][size=150]Centered Title[/size][/align]A bunch of content with a [list]
[*]bulleted
[*]list[/list]
[spoiler=Subtext]Subtest under a spoiler[/spoiler]
More stuff that's very important to you for whatever reason.[/box]
[align=center][i]Something like a signature or seal or whatever majestic image you feel the need to share[/i][/align]

The most common ones to screw up are boxes, quotes, and spoilers. Please pay attention to the formatting tags when you go back in and put everything inside a box or under a spoiler.

Max: The code changelog says, "Added 'butthole' by mod request"
Lenyo: This dilemma needs an option that Luna would support in RL.

The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. The unnamable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. Free from desire, you realize the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source. This source is called darkness. Darkness within darkness. The gateway to all understanding

Thanks. Also in the same thread, I think this signature in this post might have something wrong too, it looks different from the others.

That's really not necessary nor particularly helpful. Mods can merge this thread into that thread quite easily. It's better than having it posted twice.
