    Is there a limit on how many multiple-choice answers can be in a poll? I tried creating a poll with 9 possibilities and get "Invalid server response".

    Thanks,

    There's no limit. I just tried creating a poll and it worked OK for me. Try again... maybe just a glitch?

    Right, I know. See my post from the previous page. It appears to be the way that list was designed. I'm looking into it.

    I agree, those lists are fine. The issues are the 'Latest Activities' view and the ones in Tapatalk.

    If it helps, the message text shown the 'My Subscriptions' view is as preferred. Unrelated, the thread sort in this view is strange. I think its sorted by date of 1st post of the thread (which isn't shown so is fairly confusing).

    Are you specifically clicking "New Unread Topics" or "Today's Posts"? If not, try those and see what you get.

    Text highlighted is from 1st post of threads. Would be more useful if it were from most recent post instead. Same as shown earlier in the Tapatalk screenshots.

    My comment was directed at the time you have spent sorting out the special character issue when it should just work out of the box....

    when viewing latest activity the text under thread title is still from the first post in the thread-not from the last post. The previous board showed text of last post in each thread in thread view. It is extremely irritating to have to open each thread and scroll to see the text of latest post for each thread when previously this was not required.


    Can can you fix this?

    I really cannot understand why a bulletin board designed for worldwide use cannot handle special characters and you are having to spend numerous hours tweaking and testing this. The old board had no issues with special & international characters so what is different?

    Having the avatar, post count, Facebook and Twitter icons etc vertically is the cause of all the white space. Having these along the top of the post (which is also unused space) would allow the table to shrink to fit the text posted. Aesthetics over functionality again....More scrolling.....

    It sounds like you want the list generated on your initial search to remain when you go back to that page. Because vBulletin is now dynamic, hitting the back arrow on your browser causes a fresh fetch of data on a page reload, where vBulletin 3 reloaded the originally built page without a fresh query of the database. I prefer the current behavior.

    Apparently you had never used the board as I had, or it would be perfectly clear. I have articulated my issue so that anyone can figure out exactly what I'm saying. I seem to be the only one who "misses" the old behavior. So mote it be.
