That can be rectified by you.  Go to your profile, click on "Look and Layout Preferences"; a checklist comes up.  Put a check in the box next to "Return to topics after posting by default."

Same place in profile, "Use quick reply on topic display:", "show on by default" should fix that.  I think.  I haven't tried it yet.  Be the guinea pig.  ;D  There's a few things you can customize for yourselves; just look over the options at your profile page.

There are a few things here that they have defaulted to the exact opposite of what seems intuitive to me. Once you learn your way around the control panel though you can figure most things out.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

Hey there!
We are so far past and beyond the “long train of abuses and usurpations” that the Colonists and Founders experienced and which necessitated the Revolutionary War that they aren’t even visible in the rear-view mirror.

Greetings all! Rick, *hat-tip*

Yup, some of the things we did before have to be redone now if we can figure it out. Resizing the quote text, adding smilies, adding the banner. Then the youtube embedding thing, seeing about spellcheck....

I've got a list of questions going for the hosts...

I know, brings back bad memories, dudn't it? I think it took about 6 months at the old place before I figured out it was even an option. I sure hope the same goes for here. In the meantime, we can always resort to manually resizing what's inside the text box like we used to have to do.

That's on my list. All I know right now is that this is what they call "open source" code, and there are supposedly a lot of user mods or "hacks" out there to make changes. I won't know what those are, or how feasible it is for me to try to implement them until I get the attention of a forum software support person, and as I mentioned elsewhere, while the hosts have 24/7 server monitoring technicians, their actual forum support is basically a M-F 9-5 operation. Which I welcome. It means we're dealing with a business that's got better things to do than worrying about spying on behalf of political correctness.
