Yes, you can change whether you auto-watch threads in your Preferences.

the cursor in the text entry box for posting is more active than I’d like, at least on iPhone safari which is where I’ll be doing 90% of my talking timing. If I use backspace to delete a word letter by letter it’ll also delete the space before the word on the same tap as the last letter, which is leading to me typing two words likethis a lot. The line break is strange, too. Usually I hit return twice to get a new paragraph with a blank line between, but that seems to be only taking me to the next line. Hitting it a third time takes the cursor where I want but drops automatic capitalisation of the first letter of the paragraph. Then when I backspace to turn caps on it’ll delete the line breaks along with the letter. All of this is intermittent, too, so I can’t just adjust my typing to accomodate.
This is still happening and still driving me nuts. I don’t get this behaviour on any other site I use. Is anyone else having this issue?

Edit: I had a google which I should have done in the first place and apparently it’s a known issue in xenforo which should get patched out at some point. It doesn’t seem to happen if you hit the cog icon to switch to the plain text editor, but that disables all the buttons.

We have little control over the rich text editor widget, which I would expect to have compatibility issues. Fortunately, it appears the board will remember your setting for whether to default to the rich text editor or the plain text editor.

I don't know if anyone else has ran into this, but I received an alert that my post was quoted despite, to my knowledge, not being Red Silvers.

There's nothing that can be done from a software perspective. I think you should look into becoming Red Silvers; it's by far the simplest solution.

I would, but why would I deprive the world one that is already doing a much better job than I ever could? Unless we are looking at this like a Hawkman situation.

Weren't the URLs supposed to be bodyswapped today in a hilarious three-part mini-arc that will have ramifications for the entire rest of the series as secrets come to light and unresolved sexual tension erupts into blind passion?

I think the link button in the toolbar isn't working. I tried to use it in my Festivus DM the other night, and again in a thread earlier tonight. In both instances, the link did not appear in the inline text like this (which I needed to type out manually).

It's been working for me. If it weren't, though, there's probably little we could do about it other than file a support ticket.

Are you highlighting text you want linked and then clicking the link button, or are you clicking it to insert both link and text? (Just curious; it should work either way.)

I'm ruining into that embed bug with YouTube videos. They play fine in Steam Chat and Discord but not here for some reason.

Could you please post a screenshot of what you see?

Are you saying that you are unable to view Youtube videos that other posters have posted here, or that you're unable to embed your own?

Content owners can prevent their videos from being viewed from an embed. It's likely that the music videos are being protected that way.

It'll prevent you from playing an embedded video wherever it's embedded. I think the idea is that playing on YouTube is more likely to get them clickthrough on their other videos.

It's on a per-video basis. Try some of the videos in other threads.

When typing on mobile, every time i hit backspace it kicks me out of the phone keyboard and it's fucking annoying because I'm bad at typing and hit backspace to correct typos like 5 times per sentence.

Yeah this fucking sucks a lot, actually. I imagine we'll just have to wait for a Xenforo patch for it? (btw it happened to me twice while I was typing this)

the widgets on the top of the posting window don’t seem to work on iPad. It’s fine on mobile, and my laptop, but just not that one platform
