I'll give it a go. I just about understand that code - keeping in mind I've spent a lot of time trying to get BASIC, MySQL, ASP and PHP stuck in my head and very little of it has... well, stuck - but I may BORK the forum in the process.

Wish me luck.

I will now. Again, I'm not the Master when it comes to PHP, so bear with me.

Ahem, it's Dr. John Zoidberg (A Medical Corporation), thank you very much.

edit: And no one could've been happier unless it could have also been Valentine's Day.

Nope, Valentine's Day pisses me off royally.

Until I realise that its initials are VD, then I laugh.

In fairness, if I just drew someone random you would be forgiven for thinking it was a bit-part Simpsons character. I have a very similar drawing style to Matt Groening. I have no idea if this is down to coincidence or plagiarism.

Actually we do have a "merge topics" mod installed.

I don't think it'll be a problem anyway, now I've thought about it properly.

Get a circuit breaker instead. Then you wouldn't need to ask everyone for a fuse everytime one burns out.

And if you merge threads, it doesn't matter if you order by ID or post time. It will still cause the same ammount of chaos.

Agreed. You should only ever merge threads that run one-after-the-other.
