1.) Why is the BB code not shown for the Bold, Italics, and the Underline options, is it a new features that it just bold when we press them because the "" is not shown when bolding something.

2.) I noticed that PC supporters for some reason have two badges/signs. For example, one saying 5th Tier and the other saying 4th Tier, [B]both of them on the same person. Is this a mistake, or could it just be the theme I'm using.

Theme used: Delibird's Delivery

etc is shown for bold, Italics and underlines in the default and advanced editor. It may not be shown in the WYSIWYG one as its not a 'code' view editor.

As for the badges, only STAFF members who are also supporters should be showing 2..
Who was the user you saw with 2?
There is most likely a mistake with their profile set up.

Here is an example:

(This is not a personal attack on a member, I don't even know this member, just using this as an example of a question)

I've noticed that too...

But wait Steve. the WYSIWYG format doesn't put codes?! Then why does it put codes on mine? I have WYSIWYG on.

Actually it puts codes for the HTML, Spolier, etc., but not for the Bold, Italics, or the Underline anymore.

Orly? Why do you think it's doing with the Bold and Italic codes? It actually puts the code in the box.

I'm not a noob at the computer world, I know how HTML works, you obviously didn't read carefully about what I said and made assumptions. What I said was they don't show the codes such as "" when typing it, not that the effects are not visible.

I think the reason for Lornami having 2 supporter badges is because they were initially in the recurring supporters group, which put them in tier 2, however they donated again (not automatically) to gain tier 5 status, however the recurring supporter status was still registering that they had not reached enough $ to have the tier 5 badge, so in order to rectify this I believe Steve enables Lornami's secondary usergroup to be tier 5 so that they show the correct tier group. The tier 4 badge is only there until the recurring supporter status finally decides it's time to move them from 4 to 5, at which point I'm assuming Steve will most likely return Lornami's secondary usergroup back to normal members eliminating the second tier 5 badge.

for the editors, Steve is right, however I believe it still shows the codes for Spoiler because the spoiler tags are not a default bbcode for VBulletin, but a custom code put in by the Admins.

Yep, Gerri Shin has it right; I believe she was the one who posted a topic here awhile back asking about where her supporter banner had gotten too. Then she found herself with two due to a system glitch and she has the two banners until a certain date when her payment method stops. XD
