    Preview message weirdness.

    This seems a bit odd. Type post, hit preview.

    I get the message "This is just a preview, your post has not been submitted" but also, below that, still get the "Thanks, your post will be updated soon. Be patient." as well.

    A merely cosmetic point, but seems wrong.

    Get the same with the "u 4got ur passwurd stoopid face" (I paraphrase) and "Thanks, your post will bed updated soon" things.

    It's confusing having a big green thing AND a big red thing!

      Very weird. Forwarded to devs.

        It's been doing that for the last 2 weeks at least, both the green and the red bar when you make a cock-up, or malform your html. But also when you merely hit preview, you also get the double green bar of 'just a preview' and also 'will appear soon'. I just forgot to complain about it when I last saw it.

        While we're on the subject of message box weirdness.

        Selecting the checkbox to post as AC results in a thumping great box saying something like "Anonymous Cowards cannot choose their own icon.". Any chance that could appear over the icons below (where it would make more sense) rather than being plastered over the bit you're trying to type in (where it's a royal PITA)?

          It appears over the icons for me (the icons are also "greyed" out except for the AC one. Firefox 19.

          But I posted this once and when I read it back it wasn't clear so I withdrew my post then clicked the "back to forum" link and got into an endless refresh loop with this URL:

          Coat because I should leave before I break anything else.
