Double clicking a poster's name...

When you double click on a poster's name (if they haven't got a profile) to highlight it, it highlights the word "poster" on the other end of the bar too - so copy and paste gives you "poster confuddledDOTcom". It's a bit irritating when you're replying on a long thread and have to keep deleting it every time you copy someone's name. I was just wondering if there's a space missing or something that's causing it? It's nothing major just a mild irritation so if it's something a pain to sort don't worry I can keep deleting.

It's not happening for me.
I've just got confuddledDOTcom
I'm on a PC, using Firefox, if that makes any difference.

JenFrankenstein Tue 30-Oct-12 09:09:57

It works fine for me too. Using Firefox on Linux

poster confuddledDOTcom

Using Chrome and that's what is happening for me too.

Chrome here too

CaptainNancy Tue 30-Oct-12 09:26:29

Does this. To me in safari too.

Ooh, that's interesting.

So, you folks who are getting this on Chrome and Safari: you're on a computer, not a phone, right? And you're using the desktop version of the site?

NotQuintAtAllOhNo Tue 30-Oct-12 12:35:32

Is that why you chose that username?


BartletForTeamGB Tue 30-Oct-12 13:24:53

Helen - yes, on a Mac, using the desktop version.

confuddledDOTcom Tue 30-Oct-12 14:44:29

I'm using Chrome on a PC. I just tried it on IE and it didn't happen.

systemsaddict Tue 30-Oct-12 14:54:55

Chrome on a PC here too, does it for me too

Wallace Tue 30-Oct-12 15:01:56

Yes PC desktop version

DameMarghoulFountain Tue 30-Oct-12 15:03:35

yup, i'm on chrome and just tried this

maybe linked to the other problem too then?

confuddledDOTcom Tue 30-Oct-12 15:40:37

What other problem, poster DameMarghoulFountain?

confuddledDOTcom Tue 30-Oct-12 15:41:03

Sorry blush

DameMarghoulFountain Tue 30-Oct-12 15:46:27

some of us are finding it's taking ages to change page

it's on average about a minute per click for me

confuddledDOTcom Tue 30-Oct-12 19:35:23

I find it can be slow to change when I hit post but not noticed it elsewhere.

MapofTassie Tue 30-Oct-12 21:20:13

Same here. MacBook and Safari.

McPhee Tue 30-Oct-12 21:22:51

Well I never even knew you could do that blush


BigBroomstickBIWI Tue 30-Oct-12 21:24:46

Happens for me as well. Google Chrome, laptop

NetworkGuy Wed 31-Oct-12 16:21:18

No, not an idiot, McPhee.

To highlight something I wish to copy I always hold the mouse button down while moving across the text. That still works if someone's NN is a link to their profile, you just have to be a teeny bit more careful (!)

FWIW, double clicking here, on Chrome on an iMac, also highlights the word 'poster' but I only did it as an experiment anyway.

I've never noticed before but have just tried it out and I get the word "poster" added on too.

I'm on a PC and use Chrome.

hellhasnofurylikeahungrywoman Wed 31-Oct-12 16:34:04

On a PC, using Chrome and it does it for me too (although I never knew you could do that either).

confuddledDOTcom Wed 31-Oct-12 20:24:24

I don't usually use a mouse because I'm on a laptop and my youngest likes to "help" if there's a mouse about. I tend to save it for when I'm able to play games.
