FORUM BUG: Anything you post will be in the "ALL THINGS GAY" section - regardless of what sub-forum you post in.

    Title doesn't make sense, but too tired to word it differently. I just wanted to throw this out to get exposure out to the admin, and you guys as well. Here's a solution on how to "fix" it also.

    -So you're trying to post in sex and adult, but somehow you end up posting in all things gay (lol bizman). It's because by default every catergory you post in is going to be set in the "ALL THINGS GAY" section for some reason. Now you have to actually click on the CATEGORY list above and fix it.

    Confused? Here's a screenshot of what I'm talking about.

    If you're posting in a different section... say Dating and Relationships, you're now going to have to click on the drop down list, and actually SELECT "Dating and Relationships."

    Some of you may already know this, but for new members it may get confusing. Also, if people aren't aware of this we're going to have the "All Things Gay" section filled up tons of topics from travel, food, sex, video games, ect, ect for a while before the admin has to move them.

    Any questions or concerns feel free to fire away.



    EDIT: If you want to see what I'm talking about, visit any other forum section and click "NEW TOPIC." You will notice that by default the CATEGORY list is set to "All Things Gay"

    The other categories don't get as much attention ... that more likely why people just leave the topic on All Things Gay

    This isn't a bug. It's just lazy development. It's been like this for as long as I can remember.

    Also the ridiculously long subject field enables people to post threads with ridiculously long thread titles. And sometimes that breaks the format/layout of the page.
