Title pretty much says it all and I want to test it. I just saw three or more instances where one should have been used.

Let's see what happens.

Members are NOT being lazy.

Not laziness.

A glitch actually.


Think a full stop is the only symbol that shows in a thread title when viewed from outside of the thread itself.

Ahh I see it now. Annoying. Well maybe it will get fixed by next year.

The only symbols that work in titles:
- hyphen
. period

I'm pretty sure the rest have been disabled.

Commas, period mark, apostrophe's haven't worked for a while. 😁🤗

Hefficide: it only doesn't work in the the title box. But once you get into the thread, it shows up.😊

Idk whats going on in here... you guys are all crazy, cause my phone is doing the opposite of what you all are saying! The symbol shows up fine whether im in the thread or not. I dont see it in your post though... did you put one in your post or only the title?

Maybe you could explain the parameters of this experiment a little better?

Yes, thread titles can be turned into some very odd statements when the quotation marks or question marks are invisible.

I saw an argument in a thread a few days ago over a missing question mark in a title.
The OP explained that question marks don't show up in the title, and another member called the OP a liar.

Nearly 70 of American voters disapprove of congress performance

The disabled % sign in ATS thread titles makes it interesting, especially for people who only read the title and run with it.

LOL, that does change the meaning quite a bit, doesn't it?
