    Is it just me or does everyone have this teeny tiny box for a reply now? It's really annoying.

    Well, Battou, that is the "Go Advanced" size, but the Quick Reply Box IS tiny ever since some parts of the forum have been "patched" of late.

    There are two sets of arrows on the top right of quick reply which increase or decrease the size of the text box....

    yeah but that only makes it taller and not wider.

    Clicking on the SWITCH EDITOR MODE button (the one with 2 A's) makes it a bit longer
    <-------------------------------------------------------------->
    but I'm sure it was a lot longer before

    I was thinking I was the only one who noticed that. It feels very strange when typing.

    Sorry, folks - it is as Corinna mentioned above: Karissa ran a vBulletin patch recently, and the smaller Quick Reply box was a direct outcome - we don't know why. It functions (that's the main thing) but the dimensions were buggered. She will have to manually adjust it, if that's even possible - and it may be a while before it's resolved. In the meantime, you might adjust it as best you can with the methods described between Matt and LP.

    All other functions appear to have been unaffected by the patch. Sorry for the inconvenience!
