    vBulletin 5 has expanded its use of AJAX, to make various forum functions (including posting replies) faster. Basically it posts to the thread without needing to reload the page in your browser.

    The fact that you can't see your sig right after posting is a side effect of this. Everyone else will see your sig, and once you have reloaded the page you'll see it too.

      I just noticed something strange:

      Moved some sent messages into the trash folder like 2 weeks ago, and now checking my message center, I found an answer to a PM that I had sent and trashed the sent message. The answer was from the 20th of February already and never appeared in my inbox nor did I get notified of a new message

      I really only saw it because the trash folder showed one unread item. Un-deleted the message now and hope this will solve the problem

        Note:
        I wasn't able to enter the following thread from my Subscription Notifications --> https://forum.gateworld.net/general-...-in-new-series

        It told me I didn't have the necessary clearance.

        I tried opening the thread from the main page and had no issue whatsoever.

          Guessing either by now you gave up trying or the problem corrected itself when Darren or Greg last cleared the forum cache?

          If it's any comfort I keep hitting stoopid errors too!

            I haven't encountered the error again so I guess it was fixed, or resolved itself.

            I haven't run into any major issues.

            Only a small one last Friday... I remember cause I was replying to the thread about Cliff's passing and when I hit post, GW decided to kick me out instead. For reasons unknown I got logged out as I hit post. I suspect it was a glitchy moment cause that also hasn't happened again.

              One thing I will praise vBulletin for is how fast the Avatar changes occur. I like, way muchly

              EDIT: it seems to a tkae a bit though on the forum threads, but its instant on the profile pages

                It doesn't let me continue to the site when I want to access gateworld from my pc. What do I do? It's a new pc and I just got internet back today. It works fine from my phone, though...
                Do I have to agree to something?

                      Yeah, just realized that too when I arrived at the main page and it popped up. My addblocks are on.
                      However, when I click "continue to side" the pop-up disappears and I can move around freely without hinderance -- Google Chrome.

                        Tried it on chrome, it works there.
                        I mainly use firefox though and it should work on all browsers...
                        For now I'll use chrome for Gateworld and Firefox for everything else.

                        Thanks for the help.

                            Hey guys, don't know if this is still related to the forum upgrade, but I've been meaning to point out that the SG-1 link to episodes is broken when you click on it on the "forum" page:
                            Invalid Page URL. If this is an error and the page should exist, please contact the system administrator and tell them how you got this message.

                            If you click on it on the main page, it works fine.

                              Just a quick question:
                              Why did the overall height of the signature go from 200px to 180px?

                              I liked it when it was 200 because I knew the image couldn't be more than 180 in height, something that happened at some point during VB4, which gave me 20 extra pixels for text.
