    In my discussion thread AE Limits, the chapter symbol (§) is displayed incorrectly. It appears as an at symbol (@).

    If I edit the post, the character is displayed correctly.

    Hi Michael,

    I see what you are talking about.  Let me review and bring this up with the vendor and see if we can get it fixed.

    Thanks

    ​Michael,

    Was it a typo in your post, or is this very, very meta? ;)

    ​Oh wow. When I reply to any of this, the accompanying brief message popup says:

    Any idea when this will be fixed?

    The case was escalated to the vendor's engineering team and is still open pending a resolution.  As of today, I do not have a time frame.  ~jm

    It has been more than six months since I reported this bug. Has there been any progress?

    @Michael A. Lowry  -  You are correct, the vendor Engineering team is working on it.  Every bug has a priority, this one, in my opinion, is a p5 - not the highest priority, not affecting a wide audience, with low impact.    ​I'll check if the JIRA ticket has been updated with a patch.

    Hi Jason, I've reached back out to Development to get an update on this one. As soon as I get a reply from them, I'll forward it over to you so you're up to date on it.

    Thanks. I want to give you an idea of how this feels from the perspective of your customers.

    With Jive, we were at an 8 out of 10 with regard to functionality and usability.
    With Higher Logic, we're struggling for months just to get from 4 to 5.

    This bug in the Higher Logic platform is still present 10 months after I reported it. Is there any chance it will be fixed?

    @Michael A. Lowry  - the ticket is still open with the vendor - as you can see it is escalated and a bug in the system that is in engineering.   Their cycles and updates are mapped so this is not a quick fix.   The vendor usually clears tickets quickly.  This one must have deeper roots.

    Thanks, @Jason McClellan. It's clear from the surprisingly candid transcript you provided that this is not a priority at all. It is not my intention to ask you for something you are simply unable to deliver. I will stop asking about the fix.

    I was about to ask about another bug I reported that Broadcom acknowledged months ago, but then I found this thread.

    Appreciate the honesty. I think we can finally drop the pretext that it's all "customer first", and our input valuable.

    Think I'm done here.

    All,  I can control what I can control - or what I perceive I can control.  (Need a little humor today) but vendors have their own roadmap.   I've actually raised the ticket I shared with the community into another security fix I am working on which is a P1.    When I can, I try to be as transparent as possible.    ~jm

    @Michael A. Lowry  - I just received this note this morning from vendor support.  It looks to be rendering correctly on the post you shared in the above thread https://community.broadcom.com/communities/community-home/digestviewer/viewthread?MID=791473.     Backlog p4 items take a while to resolve.   ~jm

    Hi Jason,

    I wanted to let you know that we released the code that resolves this issue. If you notice it still occurring on your end, please let me know and I'll send the case back over to our Development team.

    Thank you for your patience while we worked on the issue for you.
