I'm going to take the liberty of adding a bit of extra info to this thread...

Just a heads up that the Report button on cRichards post does not send a report with your issue descriptions to a developer. It sends the moderating team a message, the developers never seeing it.

Since this thread is locked, the normal Reply button isn't there.

The thing to do is to create a New Topic in this section and then post your report there original.gif

Added bigger fonts as people as still sending reports to moderators instead of info to developers
