The reason that pin is placed by default in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean just beneath the African coast is because that's where the latitude and longitude is exactly zero.  When you move a pin to your location, you're actually putting in a latitude and longitude.
Correct :yes:

So we're not allowed to post new topics anymore? :blink: Seems a little harsh, but I think I *might* know the reason why. :thinking:

Probably because too many people were posting the same topics elsewhere in the forums or made topics that could belong to another topic previously posted. I agree with this decision though, it helps keep down topics that might otherwise fit in the General LF, TWC Discussion boards, The Front Porch, etc.

I also have a feeling it is also a spam prevention technique until the next SMF update, because spam has really increased dramatically in the last few weeks...

I assure you it was not intentional. I am very annoyed at how the changes were made.

You messed up something in the BBCode. Test:  :rofl2:

That's not the code for that emoticon.  It should be rofl2 with a colon before and after it.  Keep in mind that you being on a Mac might be a factor here as most things are designed for PCs.  You can always click on the graphical emoticons themselves and see the codes being shown when you preview your post.
