It appears that every time I edit my profile, my signature adds 4 or 5 unnecessary carriage returns.

Are you trying to use HTML line break code (or paragraph breaks) along with actual line breaks? That will double you up, because we translate all line breaks into HTML when you hit Submit.

Once upon a time when I first set up my signature, I only used the enter key to separate my lines. Now when I see that it's increasing my breaks (by having 5 or 6 [br]'s), I go into my profile and just delete all but one. Which works, until it magically bumps up to 5 or 6 again (which I think happens the next time I edit my profile).

So right now my signature coding looks like this:

[br][br]GCWOC-Approved[br][Ty Cobb signature]

It already looks like a second [br] got popped in. Perhaps every time I go to my profile, the enter key return after "subject." is turned into a [br]? Let me see if this will work if I take out ALL [br]'s and replace them with enter key returns.

(5 minutes later)

Nope. Each profile edit adds one extra [br]. Crappy. Let's try no enter key returns, and use [br] instead...

(5 minutes later)

There we go. Apparently the enter key returns were the problem. It kept reading them as [br]'s, but also kept the initial return as well. (Looks like the same thing was happening in my bio too.)

I know there was an issue with this right after we changed servers...if I can remember what it was, it probably is the same deal in the profile edit page but wasn't ever noticed and thus never fixed. I'll try to suss it out.

EDIT: Ah, it's probably the carriage return thing. You silly PCs. MAYBE it's fixed. I dunno.

Well, NOW I can't make a line break between "GCWOC-Approved" and Ty Cobb, regardless if I type [br] or if I throw in some enter key return. (Same problem with the bio.) Methinks your fix broke it. :)

That's weird.

I've probably undone the fix, so your posts may look wrong again. If it does, I'll try harder to figure out just what the heck we'd been doing with it and try to get it consistent between the profile and your posts.

I just started getting into wresting. Namely, because of this bad boy ^ I like how I can find answers here. And... yeah. Because the people I know who watch it SUCK. Except for maybe a few.
