    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.

    My guess is that Robin’s post is the last one on the page and the javascript has a fence-post error which led it to create a new page.

    Also if I click on the post number next to my post
    https://britastro.org/forums/topic/new-website-feedback/page/5#post-609928
    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.

    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 …

    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?

    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.

    Not sure if I’ve logged this one already but the old link to my profile
    https://britastro.org/profile?id=146
    which I may have put out there on the internet in the past
    now points to
    https://britastro.org/forums/reply/profile?id=146
    which brings up a random unrelated posting on the forum
