Is it just me or is the forum looking a little wonky?
Yep, I was having the same Wonks, so it's not pure imagination:
Quoted posts in jammed highlit microfont, and no ability to delete or edit. And, the index icons for "New thread response" were missing.

Good to know it's probably a bug, and not a new reformat. :?

I noticed this a couple of nights ago and have left a note for James to check up on. Hopefully it’s just an update that hasn’t reapplied some of our customized tweaks and we should be back to normal soon! :)

Everything looks and works like it should again. What a relief!

Ah Duster, good times. ;)

Always seems to be the case as soon as I bring it up. Coincidence? ;)

Nope. James fixed it. A software update was not compatible with our site, but it's being looked after now.

Maybe not as confusing as Dusty's older posts, but still confusing.
They were always good for a laugh! ;)

Few may disagree, but Duster was the lesser of two evils as far as I'm concerned.

Obsessive, intense...but not evil, I don’t think. But we have certainly had the good, the bad, and the ugly on the boards over the years!

I couldn't sleep last night, so I went scrolling across some old topics....and went down the "Special_Ed" rabbit hole.

Man, that was all certainly...something, wasn't it? Seems it was from the earliest days of the forum, but man, he sounds like a first class headache.

And he used to work with me and Ben on another site!

Quite an odd duck, that one.

Indeed. I remember when he came back and I single-handedly saw through the ruse. Sloppy, sloppy! ;)
