    I agree wholeheartedly!

    Can the auto-save feature be changed? Perhaps it's just something about my own settings (and if so, someone please enlighten me!), but if auto-save is enacted (which seems to happen about every 30 seconds) while I am actually typing, for some reason, it will re-position my cursor to some random, earlier part of my text, totally screwing me up! Does anyone else have this problem? It's really annoying--I'm a touch typist and type pretty quickly, but I keep having to look at the screen and double-check what I am doing.

    I'm pretty sure it's not a feature you can set to disable--it's part of the overall Board software. I don't have the problem you're describing, though.

    Well, in general, I certainly think of auto-save as a good thing! This is just annoying though. Could it be a browser incompatibility? I'm using Chrome...of course, I'm also on a fairly old netbook that I'll be replacing in a few weeks (just ordered a new computer), so maybe that will solve the problem.

    Could be an incompatibility issue. Jordan is the one with more expertise in that area and should be able to answer your question.

    There are several browser incompatibilities and other problems with this software. We're currently testing a new environment, and will likely be abandoning vBulletin in the next few months.

    There are several other threaded/bulletin/message board competitors out there to vBulletin... maybe they're more user and webmaster friendly?
