Why has the Vb code been turned off.

I am not seeing the quotes as quotes or bold as bold. What I see are the encoding marks. If this is something I did would someone tel me how to reeset it. If it is forum wide is there some reason for the change.

Thanks for your time.

There have been some problems on the boards due to the coding (both VB and html) so they're turned off until the issues can be resolved.

It does make for crazy looking posts with the codes showing .

Thank you for the answer. Do you have any idea if it is coming back soon?

I noticed that Tom Bartco, Forum Host, posted an announcement at the beginning of each forum about the coding. It appears that it won't be turned on any time soon. Its a shame that one idiot out there can blow it for everyone else.

If you would like to read a copy of it, click on "electrical" at the top of this page and it is the first post listed.

Until we can find a way to prevent this from happening, we will have to take a 'step back in computer time' and do the copy/paste routine. I didn't realize how much I had gotten used to the convenience of just clicking a link, or seeing a pic.

Some coding is allowed, but only in your signatures that you set up in your profile section. It is HTML coding only. VB coding is turned off for the entire forum board.

My hope: the computer gods will 'bless' these idiots' computers according to their actions. that every virus and hacker give to these porn posters sevenfold of what they've given us here at DoItYourself.com

I still don't understand why people find the need to do such things. What purpose does it serve?
