    ...get cut off short in the forum topic listings?

    That one was deliberate. But full titles seem to get cut off for no reason, like ones that aren't especially long.
    They seem to be cut off at various lengths at random.

    Just something I wondered about while I am supposed to be working.

    Ah, I see what you mean.

    "Official"... for "Official" Carvin Club - Part 3

    New competitio... for New competition for GK's MB200??? Traynor Small Block!

    Rocksmith/... for Rocksmith/Bandfuse...

    "Sting"... for "Sting" bass owners, is this normal?


    Yet, just bought a 5 string. need some advice. and Advice for a player coming off a long break are left in full. It is a bit odd.
