Quotes and Automatic Shifting
« on: July 08, 2009, 01:22:20 PM »
I think this might be bothering some people but when I quote a long piece of text and want to write something underneath it , it keeps popping back up to the top of the page where the quote was.

I've got the exact same problem. I really can't tell what I'm typing when it does that.

Is there a post I can go to where I can quote that post and get that error? I'd like to see it.

It's not an error per say; just get a quote from someone who written several paragraphs in one post and see if it happens

When does it go back to the top - after you reply, or while you're trying to reply? The more specific and precise you can be in explaining what's going on, the better chance we have of helping. :)

Let me see.

When I try to type, it always shifts back up in the scroll-bar thingamajigger. (Sorry for not being so technical there, m2!)

That is, the scroll-bar when you are typing your post after quoting.

Hmmm. That might be a browser thing. Doesn't happen for me.

Until we're all quoting the same post and see what happens, we can't hope to find the problem or even duplicate it.

I'll ask again...point us to a post where if we quote it, we should see what is being discussed here.

Thanks.

A Crazy thing.........


Earlier this year a chance message dropped into Andy’s ‘myspace’  inbox from a man by the name of Tim Dannenhoffer. It was a request to get on the mix of a track from the latest U2 album ‘No Line On The Horizon’. The track in question was called ‘Magnificent’. Surely the guerilla tactics used on 'Vertigo' couldn’t work a second time?


Late one April afternoon the E-Mission Music studio sound system was kicked into life as Andy attempted to pull off the impossible again. However, it wasn’t so easy with ‘Magnificent’ as it was with ‘Vertigo’ so the best he could do without the parts was a 3 minute demo version. Without a finished version to send to radio, there was only one way to get it heard - management. So that’s where the demo went. The following week Mercury Records were in touch to say the band loved the demo and wanted the proper mix done. Bullseye! It seemed impossible that it would happen a second time but it had, so the 360 and 180 mixes of ’Magnificent’ were mixed and sent away to mastered. Mission accomplished.


A few weeks later Mercury Records were in touch again, this time coming directly to Andy to ask for a remix on the next U2 single to be released from the album entitled ‘I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight’. There was a problem however. Andy had been booked on a month long tour of Brazil and flew out in three days time - the label needed the mix back in two! It was too good an opportunity to miss, so all the stops were well and truly pulled out and a mix was duly submitted to the label in time.


Having been in Brazil for a few days, the word from camp U2 was that the band had gone for the mix in a big way. A REALLY big way!
In the normal scheme of things a remixer will work on a mix, sit with it for a day, go back, change a bit, and so on until it’s right. Having only had 2 days to do it Andy knew there would be a few things to put right. Bono himself came up with some ideas to lift certain parts, one of which was to record a crowd chanting ‘We’re gonna go crazy’ during the breakdown section of the track.
This was a BIG problem. Software synth lines were easy enough to play and mold...

I couldn't even copy-and-paste the whole thing, but it's already doing it.

I just tried it in the Pie Thread. I may be misunderstanding here but quoting the long text then posting below it worked for me. Go check it out .  SG
