The spell checker appears to be something set up on the server side using this editor. And in the easy case it only works with IE. The other case is a little harder to set up but I think it covers more browsers. I'm sure they are working on this.

btw FCKeditor which is what the forum is using does have the ability to do spellcheck. But that may be something the admins have to setup.

Hi Lothar, nice to see you in this nice but PBeM uncomfortable FFG Forum.

So I finished my transition to this new FFG Forum by this first post.

Let's just wait and see, how we can send PM.

May be we will all befriend each other or there will be a TI3 Community to joining in.

Hello all!

Mordred here. Formerly Mordred24 but I dropped the "24".

This forum is rude. As soon as I signed up they told me I had 0 friends and to add insult to injury they even specified that no players wanted to be my friend.  ;- )

Welcome back!

Why not use the spell checking of your browser?

 

Woah, what's that? Somehow this ******* editor is loosing the focus all the time. Damn, I hate this forum. Seems to be made by idiots.

Obsidian checking in. Probably won't be using the forums a whole ton but good to be signed up anyway :-)

And I sure hope that more features are on the way. The Web 2.0 theme with friends lists and points, etc. doesn't make up for the lack of PM's and personal avatars, among who knows what else.

It's also because the posting window is a java app and your browser only does spell checking on text fields."

Me likes dem ! So I signed up!

Sometimes you have to move to a new place. But I do not understand all the moaning. It is a nice Forum running native on own servers. This can and probably will be a benefit in the near future, because it offers more possibilities of user interaction. Maybe they put it up a little early, but we as users are the best bughunters menkind has to offer, so I understand it. I like the new look. It looks fresh and modern.

But here is one for you FFG: Please provide us with some of the more interesting content from the old forums. You have Database access, please copy and paste for us!

The reason for MY moaning was largely because this forum used to be slow as molasses (and still isn't as fast as it used to be before the switch).

I continue to moan because this forum lacks several MAJOR functionality things, such as PMs, custom avatars, editing capability, and an intuitive editor, to name a few.

This forum LOOKS pretty, but it's functionally inferior to the old one :)
