From the elves:  A request, and a question (updated)

Posted by The_Elves

Update (Friday evening):

1. As to the problem of text disappearing to the left after a blockquote when viewing the "recent comments" page using Internet Explorer, I think this problem is now solved. Please report any continuing problems you find, if any, being sure to note what web browser you are using.

2. I thought I had solved the right overflow problem (i.e. when there's a very long link in the comment, which messes up the right margin). But my "fix" to hide the overflow, just created new problems. I've gone back to the original settings, which means if there is a long link, it will still cause the comment text to overlap the right menu bar.

The EASIEST "fix" is for commenters to avoid posting long links. If you've got a long link, please either use or learn how to format your link so that instead of pasting a long url http://www.abcdefghijkl.... etc., it will instead point to the link like: alphabet

Hi all.
We've not bombarded you all with too much admin stuff of late after a month or more of lots of admin messages when the new blog was launched in late May.

A few housekeeping details.

1. First the request: In general, if you're contacting us with a story idea or a technical question or problem, PLEASE e-mail us rather than using the "Private Message" feature to contact us. Our address, as always: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

We welcome private messages on other topics, but e-mail works best if/when we want to forward something to Kendall or our other elf helpers. Thanks.

2. A question: It's been awhile since we've raised the question of any bugs that need fixing or any features you'd like to see. Or opened the floor for questions and problems. What's on your mind? How can we help? A few folks have been e-mailing us about unwanted e-mail from T19/Stand Firm. We can help with that. We are also always available to help tackle registration / login problems. Let us know in the comments or by e-mail how we can help.

3. Finally: we hope within a week to make some progress again on adding more links, Anglican and non-Anglican to the sidebar. Kendall's travels which left us in charge fro two weeks in July, and our own overwhelming workload of late have meant that any blog formatting changes or adding features or links had to be put on hold. But we'd like to get back to that as soon as we can. We've saved all the links readers have already sent in as suggestions. But we always welcome other suggestions!

Feel free to use this as an open thread to give us your gripes, your questions, your suggestions.... Especially for newer readers / members who may not have had a chance to weigh in on these questions in May, we'd love to hear from you.
