Can we have a button to preview PMs as we're composing them, next to Send? You take a bit of a risk with complex formatting at the moment ;)

I wish it was a option that I could offer, but the software does not allow it. I will however send it as a suggestion to the people who do the programming for the forum software upgrades and perhaps at some point it will make it to the added features. Good idea!

Looking at it I think it's already been added for vBulletin 3. I must say I'm looking forward to the gold release, it's much whizzier and seems to work well on all the sites I visit that are using a release candidate of 3.0.0... in the mean time are you going to upgrade to 2.3.4? Looks like a number of security fixes have been implemented, and they recommend upgrading to it. It took you long enough to get off 2.0.0 IIRC though :p

We are cautious with our upgrades. On one of our upgrades a year and change back, we ended up with some serious bug/crash issues that really messed with the forum, and we had to actully go back to the earlier version. We were even down for a few days because of it. So we tend to wait until a release is out for a good bit before moving up. In time we will if it proves to be stable.
