Editing and post with any sort of tag is busted, I can't even edit a post with a quote without making a double post. Also, moving text in around seems to change the font or the size, and I don't even want to look at which for fear of making more double posts.

Can we please fix this?

Quoting myfist0,

OK, I quoted you.

 

 

And posted a video. 

 

 

 

Now adding this as an edit....

 

 

Is this what you meant?

The Sins forums are notorious for having quote issues...many a threads and discussions have been completely derailed because the quote feature improperly attributes the quote to the wrong person...

I have continually experienced the same issue over the years even as I switched amongst Firefox, Chrome, IE9, and IE10...

So, just ignore Chrome users because you don't like it?

Chrome vs. Firefox vs. Internet Explorer vs. Safari stat counter

According to the latest numbers from StatCounter, Chrome was the top browser for Jan. 2013,

No, but Stardock makes software for Windows, not Google. Regardless of user base or popularity, IE support needs to be the primary focus on all SD sites, imho. Expecting the forum guys to keep up with browsers that change on a nightly basis is unrealistic. Just my .02

I don't recall anyone saying to ignore other browsers though.

Because if Google's insidious efforts towards world domination by 'offering' to install Chrome at every opportunity it can...all for the sake of data-mining....

But yes, I use it too...as anyone vehemently sticking to only one browser has his head in the sand.

I'm not 'ignoring Chrome users'...and if I were it means nothing...as I am not a coder coding these forums....

I use Chrome portable occaisionally. Mostly when IE9 is having trouble with WC. I like to keep a "secondary" browser on hand for emergency use...lol.

Actually...that raises an interesting Q ....how does 'statcounter' count browser use....via hits on its site?

If so....then it'll be more accurate to say Chrome users have an inferiority complex...constantly checking out the other 'members' at the urinal....

What'd be more relevant would be local stats for Stardock's sites...

mmm... yeahhh 

took all of 5 secs to look it up.

StatCounter is a web analytics service. Our tracking code is installed on more than 3 million sites globally. These sites cover various activities and geographic locations. Every month, we record billions of page views to these sites. For each page view, we analyse the browser/operating system/screen resolution used and we establish if the page view is from a mobile device. For our search engine stats, we analyze every page view referred by a search engine. For our social media stats, we analyze every page view referred by a social media site. We summarize all this data to get our Global Stats information.

We provide independent, unbiased stats on internet usage trends. We do not collate our stats with any other information sources. No artificial weightings are used. We remove bot activity and make a small adjustment to our browser stats forprerendering in Google Chrome. Aside from those adjustments, we publish the data as we record it.

In other words we calculate our Global Stats on the basis of more than 15 billion page views per month, by people from all over the world onto our 3 million+ member sites.

By collating our data in this way, we track the activity of third party visitors to our member websites. We do not calculate our stats based on the activity of our members alone. This helps to minimise bias in the data and achieve a random sample.

In August 2012, our global sample consisted of 17.1 billion page views (US: 4.2 billion); 2.5 billion of these were search engine referrals (US: 524 million); 262 million of these were social media referrals (US: 121 million).
