I'm automatically auto-subscribed to any reply I make, even though I have that feature deselected in my profile.

Evidently, it works for some people as indicated in the following thread...

Also, if I try to navigate to the Forums Issues area (this area) from the GalCiv3 site, it says "Forums Go Boom".  I can navigate here from the GalCiv2 forums though.

It seems that HP agrees that the Win8 UI is problematic.

Sure, MS is rumored to be perhaps thinking about maybe bringing the start button back.  I wonder if this might open their eyes a bit.

Karma isn't showing up when given on a Galactic Civilizations III post.  For instance, I and someone else gave this person karma.

However, the karma number shows only the one given at the person's profile.  The two karma given from the Galactic Civilizations III forum aren't included on his karma number.

This is not the same issue that was reported earlier.  I didn't see any errors when giving karma.

Time Warner Cable is going to start charging its customers extra to download games, watch videos or even update your games.  This is going to adversely affect any internet based business, regardless of actual cost to the customer.

Percieved pricing will prevent some customers from using services like Impulse and Steam. 

Imagine downloading a "free" 8 GB HD movie and having to pay $8.00 just for downloading it?  Yep, it's $1.00 per GB.

Time Warner did a test run of the pri...

This isn't a complaint in any form or fashion.  I'm just reporting a possible anomoly.  It might be nothing.

I've been noticing the following error in the Quick Reply box.  It pops in there and quickly disappears, so I had to be fast with the screen grab to get it.

It might be just be an issue with Firefox (I'm using Firefox 3.0.1 which has known issues with TinyMCE).

Thought I'd post it in case it relates to any issues that are being worked on.  I hope it helps in s...

I tried to use the Edit button on forums.galciv2.com and forums.impulsedriven.com.  It doesn't work on either forum.  I haven't tried anywhere else.

In both cases, the screen appears to reload and just go back to displaying the reply.  After trying to use the Edit button on forums.impulsedriven.net three times on the same post, the Edit button disappeared, but I'm still logged in there.  (This happened a few seconds ago).

(Edit - The problem appears to be limited to the...
