Robin posted the above some hours ago. As is my usual habit I clicked on the “8 hours 43 minutes” link on the forum contents page which normally takes me to the last post in the thread so annotated.
On this occasion it took me to the Reply-To: form, the one into which I am now typing. This behaviour was reproducible.
Also if I click on the post number next to my post
it takes me to the top of the next page instead of to the post. It should point to

We are told that BBCodes can be used to format our postings. I am one of those (very few?) weird people who have memorized a few such codes, such as [_i] [_/i] (underlines added for clarity) for italicizing intermediate text. I doubt that there are many other oddities like me. So, two questions:
1) Would it be possible to provide a pointer to TFM for BBCodes for easy reference when posting and/or replying?
2) Is it possible to provide buttons for pointy-clicky encoding of regions of text such as many other fora provide? See http://www.mersenneforum.org for an example where I post rather often if you want to see what I mean.9 May 2022 at 9:01 pm #610169
And while I am on the subject: a preview-before-posting button would be nice too. Four edits in my earlier post could have been avoided …25 May 2022 at 5:08 pm #610484Alan ThomasParticipant
When posting in the Gallery, my full name etc is now displayed. Can I go back to the old, and less formal, first name and surname?

Thanks Alex – I didn’t notice your thread . . . .

Not sure whether this somewhat elderly thread is still current or whether I should start a new one.
Over on SGL members were asked about their smallest telescope. Ever the pedant and firm believer that one should never ask for anything unless you are prepared to receive it, I pointed to an image taken with a 2.2mm f/1.8 refractor. This one to be precise: https://britastro.org/observations/observation.php?id=20191209_191900_36b00eba365581f4
Now I am pretty sure when it was uploaded originally to the old gallery it was displayed upright and not sideways. Can it be fixed, please?
No idea whether other images have been similarly rotated.11 June 2022 at 7:28 pm #611003Robin LeadbeaterParticipant
