Mike,

On the link color question, I am seeing the dark blue in image links, as we knew, and in url links. I am not seeing it in user mentions.

Also, I ran across the quoted material thing just now in a very recent notification, reverting back to the longer style. Here's a screenshot. Also, in this one you have the username DavidHP set off with an @ in the post, and it comes through with the normal color here, so that answers the question about mentions:

Mike, while looking for the answer to this question, I found maybe something else for your long list.

This is a thread notification I got July 29, 8:59 PM from your "Big Mike in Ecuador" thread. The post has a quote from a previous post and then your additional update. The prior post is set off by the words "---Quote (Originally by Big Mike)---" and then "---End Quote---"

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).



What I'm seeing now is this, the quoted passage set off by QUOTE tags (10:46 AM today):

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).



I never pay much attention to these messages, other than to just click View, so I don't know what it has been, but I noticed that the QUOTE tags looked funny, and then I saw the other style, which looks much more right, so I wanted to let you know.

I'll get back with the link color question in a minute.

Bob.

I noticed this a while back, and I think you are looking at a MENTION or QUOTED email alert, vs a normal thread subscription alert. The prior aforementioned being the better formatted, because those mods have a custom function that improves (or removes/replaces) the markup.

I looked into implementing it into our main subscription emails, but backed off because of the initial complexity. But yes, on my list, and agree that the formatting is much improved in the former vs later.

This is not supposed to be happening:

@DavidHP username in yellow, but title of Market Wizard.

Reputation is:

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Which qualifies him as not just as Market Wizard, but Legendary.

However, something is wrong with logic somewhere because Legendary is being applied, but usergroup is wrong (Elite instead of Market Wizard):

Recording this here so I can look into it again when I have a moment.

Of course and we appreciate that sentiment, but it's also important for our community to reward helpfulness and this is one of those ways we do it, so we want to get it right

OK, let me investigate @trendisyourfriend

I actually just came to this thread to double check @GruttePier --- and found he was still wearing red -- and was about to declare victory, then I refreshed and saw your post.

It's the same bug. His reputation is being squashed to zero due to a math error somewhere in my formula. Then it gets fixed next time the script is run, but I am having trouble nailing it down as to what is causing the error to begin with.
