If anyone ever NEEDS to edit after that period of time, please feel free to ask any moderator for assistance.

It's SET to 30 days, but the vBulletin software just doesn't LIKE you!

I thought I was being singled out.

Oh well, better than being kicked out (for now anyways).

I am talking about a new post, there is something funky going on with the edit function, just wondering if anyone else has run into this. I don't know if its a compatibility thing. But if I put in a return (enter) into a new post (to make a new paragraph) when it posts the space is not there.

Ah.... we discussed this in another thread.
Someone else had the same problem. I forget the fix.

The thing is I have changed no settings so I don't get why it would all of a sudden start doing this......computers some times frustrating.
