Is there a reason why we can't use BBC code (i.e.-[url][/url]) in shoutboxes or when composing PMs? The code won't execute in shoutbox posts and it's just stripped off entirely when sending a PM. Please tell me it's not an attempt to circumvent spammers, because if so it's merely an inconvenience to users.

Also, how are we supposed to delete messages in our inbox? Will we eventually be able to preview when composing a message?

Also looks like we can't edit messages anymore after posting them here on getsat? I had to delete and recreate this topic because I missed a typo. While I'm on the subject, you can't click on a user's name and go to their profile anymore?

Yes. They are dumb. Easy is that.
