Hello,

We are releasing a small update to the site this afternoon at approximately 2pm CST. This update will focus almost exclusively on the rich text editor that is used to post debates and messages. We have updated the editor so that it is friendly with all browsers.

As usual, I will post on here when the update is complete and allow you to note any issues that may occur.

Thanks,
Julia

Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

I know I sent feedback on this the other day, but just to make sure the issue is out there: under the "Forums" drop-down menu, "Philosophy" is spelled "Philosopy". I (and all members experiencing a similar psychological compulsion upon realizing the typo) would appreciate if you could give that a quick fix. Thanks. :)

I'd say get rid of it. How many people really use that and look at it?

If you do update it, here are the only updates I'm aware of that came after the addition of the Forums:

The site name change happened sometime in February 2009 (http://www.debate.org...), perhaps the 8th, maybe the 7th.

11/13/2009 - Google search function improved http://www.debate.org...

1/19/2010 - Voting tab finished http://www.debate.org...

2/24/2010 - Forum email notifications http://www.debate.org...

6/2/2010 - Tea Party Patriots added to Political Parties http://www.debate.org...

10/7/2010 - Like/Dislike replaced with FB "like" button http://www.debate.org...

Ads also came and went, but I can't find dates for them. They were the worst kind of ads. Fortunately they're gone now.

The only benefit it has is for site history. Most members probably couldn't even navigate to that page without a Google search or the provided link.

Hey guys,

We are going to hold off on this update until early next week - Monday or Tuesday. I am not comfortable releasing the update until we do a little more testing since it is such a critical piece of functionality. (I figure you guys might enjoy posting debates and messages.)

I apologize for the false alarm. Thank you for your suggestions for quick updates. I will see if we can roll a few into the release early next week.

Thanks,
Julia

What gives you the idea that we enjoy posting messages and debates?

Just kidding.

We have performed additional testing and fixes on the editor updates and will be rolling these updates today (Monday) at 4:30PM CST. Please note that this update may cause you to have to log into the site again.

If anyone finds any problems, please report them in this thread.

Thanks,

When I try to center a single line of text in the text editor, it messes up the alignment of the rest of the text.

We are forcing a BR when you hit enter rather than a P tag. I was under the impression this had been requested at one point but could be wrong. Since we don't have any P tags, the editor does not have anything to align based on besides all of the text. We could update the editor to do a P tag on enter which would resolve this, but I am not sure how everyone feels about this. Thoughts?

This happened ages ago. When are they going to un sticky this thread?
