    Yes, the forum cache is screwed up and putting things out of order sometimes, will try to fix that.

    Is there a way to change/delete a poll on a thread i made? I wanted to rotate silly nonsense polls on my blogette but hitting edit only gives me the option to add more choices and the rest is uneditable

    In order to change a poll, you have to first delete it from the same place you add in choices. After that, you should have the ability to create a new one.

    Theres still no delete choice, the only thing i can do is add more choices or close the poll

    After going back to do more testing, indeed it doesn't once there's been a vote. My b.
    Test poll is closing in an hour, I'll check if the option pops back up after.

    bzuh?

    subsequent attempts with “bat thread” encased in quotes returned the same result of everything with “thread” in the title, only without comment.

    Yup, the XenForo search function is really stupid. There is a plugin to add ElasticSearch support, but of course, you need to pay for it.

    Verdict: even a closed poll can not be deleted by user. Permissions possibly something to do with deletion of other people's posts? Don't know, been a while since I had a forum.

    Also, Sims 4 needs copious amounts of CC to be a good game, and is thus highly distracting.

    Verily a very ineffective hitman

    I’ve found that if you select two expansion packs that seem like they’ll complement each other (currently there’s a sale so now is a good time to buy if you’re into that), it starts feeling like a much more fleshed out game, even without much CC. I picked Get to Work and City Living on my first go-round, and what with the gorgeous cityscape and festivals that actually felt like local flavor, and the playable careers, the game really came to life for me.

  10. “Bat” is too long obviously

    I picked Get Famous and City Living, I just miss the vast amounts of CC I had in TS3 and the gorgeous graphics and endless colors for hair and eyes so. Genetics are 90% of the mods I've been grabbing.

    I imagine the answer is no, but is there a way for a user to pin a thread to the top of a forum on an individual basis?

    not sure what you mean by 'on an individual basis' -- you mean, only you see it as pinned, and others don't? no, that's not a function that exists. mods can pin a thread, but it's then pinned for everyone.

    Like I thought. Just some vain hoping.

    If you make a post and then edit that post to include a quote, does the person you quote still get a ping?

    I just had the forum ask to use my location for the very first time today, and I wanted to know what it would use it for. I didn't grant permission, but since it was the first time I was just curious why now and not before.

    i am not aware of any legit thing in the forum software that would ask for your location.
