    1 Is it possible to see content (all posts and started threads) from yourself?

    2 Is it possible to forbid people using the spoiler option when posting pics?

    1. I think it is. Rt click your name, your content. You can also search through all your posts and threads.
    2. No idea. I've seen a "spoiler" here several times and have no idea what it is. So I don't click it.

    1. Hover over your username next to Inbox, click "Your Profile Page", and check under Interact.

    @ act8192 and J_L

    I feel a bit silly now, it seems that you need to select your username beneath your avatar, instead of on top of the screen. About 2, this is something that should be forbidden, it's so annoying, especially with JavaScript turned off. The spoiler feature is one of the dumbest thing ever.

    Well Rasheed, I'm going to use the spoiler tag more often as a solid proof to show my love for you. :shifty:

    I'm not happy with the new upgrade, I don't like the green indication on avatars, and "fit to width" in Opera 12 doesn't work correctly on Wilders Security anymore. :thumbd:

    Rasheed187,
    On Win7 Opera 12.17 Fit to width is working for me.
    Often when I come here, not logged in for a bit, I don't see the icons on thread titles. Fit to width fixes that. Same within posts. I just retried after making the Opera window approx 900x700 and fit to width worked fine. I have that Fluid thingie set.
    Works on XP as well.
    I wish SeaMonkey had fit to width, but I guess they're incapable of doing anothing other than some Zoom percents :(

    Green triangle, is goofy, doesn't bother me, when I think about it.

    @Rasheed187,
    Opera 12.17 on Win7. Browser window size was 893x693. Less than the smallest screen here.
    Not logged in: the linked post is cut off on the left, no people icons. Fit to width works. Can see entire width.
    Restarted Opera, Logged in: identical. It works here.

    I wonder what setting might be affecting this behavior. Aha, maybe this: I have Fit to width set globally in Opera but that setting never worked for me anywhere, so I always have to click the itty-bitty thing at the right-bottom. Are we speaking of the same thing?

    It does work correctly on most pages, but as soon as the "code" tag is used, the page gets messed up, did you check the link that I posted of the EXE Radar thread? I'm not using "fit to width" in global mode, but I don't see how that should matter.

    Yes, I did use your link to page 177 of that thread. Tried in the same tab and new tab, and it's always the same. Comes in narrow (left margin aligned with "New...", and fit to width fixes that.

    Weird, I don't know why you're not seeing the same.

    It is weird. I wonder if the global fit to width might be an enabler for the bottom-right clicking. Most unlikely though.

    Green triangle doesn't move. If it moves it would bother me. Curiously, in my profile, show the online status is not checked and yet the triangle is here. Hmmm.

    It shows yourself to you alone... If you view as a guest, you won't see your member name as logged on. Anyone who has not selected that they be visible to others, still can see themselves in the online display when they are logged in. (This question gets raised over and over at the XF developers forum. It's a feature that let's you see yourself. Nothing more.)

    Well, not really. By seeing yourself as online, it tells you that you are browsing the forum logged in as opposed to viewing as a guest. People aren't always sure if they're logged in or not. This lets you know.

    That's the same as your member name being listed in the Members Online. If you are not showing your online status, then only you see the green corner. Well, and I do, as well.
