    Hello,

    The word Anvil, when written with lower-case characters, produces a little bug that has something to do with CN's abbreviation handling. Observe:

    The anvil.

    This here is an anvil.

    Use it as an anvil unit.

    Only the lower-case spelling seems to be faulty, though.

    Anvil.

    anVil.

    anviL.

    Ah I see, I had no idea what you were typing, but what its just "ANVIL" in lower caps above this text..

    Edit: if you edit the post and just click save, the bug fixes!

    It fixes itself until you reload the page, then it comes back.

    Indeed it does. The word hammer doesn't seem to work either, if you hover over it you can see some of the web code, but only when its used in anv1l it seems

    The word "bus" when spelled with a capital B also suffers from the same issue, it seems. Like so:

    Bus.

    Let's take the bus!

    Bus is still broken, DoN.

    Edit: That is, 'bus' with a capital 'B'.

    Everything seems fine now. Thanks, DoN. :)

    I'll let you know if I discover anything else.

    Also, lol @ DoN being an official abbreviation. That's a good ego boost right there, I bet. :clown:

    Excellent :thumbsup:

    I just need to remember the description cannot contain an abbreviation and amend accordingly.

    I have also removed VC as it is used too much in links etc, plus I would hope everyone on here would know what it is xD

    Yeah.....I like warranting my own abbreviation xD

    Hehe, all the mods should get their own abbreviation, that'd be a great morale booster! (or at least people can hover over their name to see what they're mod of. *although I guess that's pretty obvious anyway isn't it...)

    There's one more thing for you to take a look at, DoN. Note the faulty format in the quote's header.
