Thanks for looking into it. If it can't be fixed, then so be it. All I wanted was for it to be looked into because clearly this bugs at least one other person besides me or it wouldn't have been brought up a few weeks ago.I think you're hugely exaggerating here but we have been looking into it. Unfortunately it's really a problem in Xenforos code and it's hard to find the source.
It would be much appreciated if either you or Kitsu could update us on the outcome of your findings once you know for certain whether or not this is fixable.
