    I also have this problem, no text in edited posts, usually i have to highlight the place where text should appear to see it, sometimes scroll up/down also helps. I'm using internet explorer 6.0 win 98SE, high colour.

    You should delete both posts, and maybe give some other punishment

    I actually considered that option, but then people would think me a fascist authoritarian (well, more than they already do )

    I sometimes double post when I write something and then notice somebody asking me a question and I am responding directly to that.

    Well....actually, there might be another reason. Some similar boards have disabled the edit function for rather obvious reasons (preventing people from editing their post if for instance they take some heat, or if they want the person they're arguing with to look silly, etc...). I personnally had completely forgotten that an edit function even existed on this kind of boards, due to a long story of posting on a "no-edit" board.

    Plus it's quicker to hit the "reply" button when you've forgotten something than to edit your post. And anyway, I'm not sure why the mod thinks it's an issue. What difference does it make whether you write your comments in one post or two?

    Thanks for this thread, I now understand why I'm unable to read parts of some people's posts. Indeed, scrolling up and down helps. Dosn't work readily every time though. And besides, it's quite annoying.

    Double-posting in the "Double posts" thread, that's ironic...

    As to why i think it's an issue, precisely because sometimes it's just to spam, and less posts means less server load. So if you can say something in 1 post instead of 2, everybody'll be happy...

    At first, I was confused by this comment. Then I remembered that I answered to two posts in a row. So, is posting twice (or three, four, etc... times), but each time answering to a different post, considered double posting too?

    Well, if you say so, I'll try to comply. Though I have a tendancy not to consolidate posts, so I'm probably going to forgot.

    Laurent... To fix the 'cut-off posts bug' see the 'Complete Guide to Patching Beyond version 1.06c.

    I put some instructions in the table of contents detailing step by step how to change the post ID from the top of the post to the left of the post. For some reason, having the person's name appear to the left fixes the problem entirely.

    I was really annoyed by it until I found the explanation somewhere on this board.
