    quotes usually either look like this
    Code:
    [QUOTE]text[/QUOTE]
    or
    Code:
    [QUOTE="person quoted, post ID: number, member: number"]text[/QUOTE] 
    you can fix it by replacing [xQUOTE="
    with
    Code:

    it's [ quote=name] words words words [ / quote] without the spaces in the square brackets if you're doing it manually



    ETA: automatic quote tags also work

    An odd question but. Why are you a bandit king and not a regular one?

    I have no idea if this is what was intended but i had a gorgeously illustrated version of The Snow Queen as a kid and when Gerda meets the little Robber Girl, her father is introduced as the Bandit King. My mental image when I read the phrase is always of that illustration: short, stocky, holding a horse, furry hat.

    Doctors who don't listen to you are the worse. :\ I had/have similar problems with a few of my doctors about my weight and illnesses which are allegedly solely because of same. (sleep apnea and asthma)

    i know weight can exacerbate sleep apnea if you sleep on your back or stomach, but not if you sleep on your side. but it doesn't cause it, for crying out loud. i've had it since i was a baby, and i wasn't fat until i was thirty-five.

    i've even seen things that suggest that sleep apnea causes weight gain

    since any kind of stress, physical or mental, can cause weight gain, that seems pretty logical.

    Wait, I thought sleep apnea was only a thing to worry about if you sleep on your back and that sleeping on your stomach won't cause it. I don't know why I thought this, but it was a thing I sure believed.

    all i know about sleep apnea is that there's two kinds, one of which is caused by like something being wrong with your nasal passages/sinuses, and the other being a thing where your brain just forgets to breathe sometimes when you're asleep. the first is the kind that develops later in life, the second is something you're born with/develop young. i know with the second kind, literally nothing other than a cpap helps because there's no physical problem, it's neurological, but the first can be impacted by weight.

    if you've had it since you were a baby, i'm assuming you have the neurological based one, in which case... your weight... has LITERALLY NOTHING to do with it?

    what i've been told is that if there's compression on your chest or throat, that can trigger the 'stop breathing' thing. so my doc told me not to sleep on my stomach, or let my cat sleep on my chest if i sleep on my back. he didn't think my weight would be an issue with sleeping on my back, since my paunch is too low to compress my lungs.

    it could be one of us has old info. in any case, i'm most comfortable sleeping on my side so it doesn't impact me.

    i decided to try out the 'sprout' modpack, found a cute little abandoned house and moved in. it's over a dungeon, but that doesn't matter because i'm playing on peaceful. except apparently the dungeon was full of dryads?

    here is webmd, super sorry if you've already looked it over, but:

    it lists obstructive and central sleep apnea. obstructive is where the soft tissue collapses, and where weight can impact things. but central is just. the brain doesn't work right. which like. if it doesn't work right, it just doesn't work right.

    i was under the impression but may be mistaken that to be diagnosed with sleep apnea as a child, you almost exclusively are a case of central sleep apnea

    could be my doc got em mixed up then. he's not a sleep specialist, and i didn't ask him to read up on it or anything. i never had a sleep study, i've just always had that tendency to stop breathing sometimes.
