    I never ever understood the point of the white crayon. Even on black or dark coloured paper it was more like a smear of shine than actual 'white'.

    Don't be silly. Wax crayons don't 'mix'.

    I'd accept that in the event that melting occurs, however when using White Crayons with, say, deep purple, you DON'T get light purple. You get smeary deep purple. I tried.

    The forums have been experiencing a bug where people trying to post, and it does, but tries to post twice, so you end up getting sent to the advanced page saying you need to wait 30 seconds.
    ZeroHour enabled consecutive-post merging and that's what it's doing.. Forum thinks you're posting twice and updates the previous post to add the additional content. Which would be great, if it weren't the same post (due to aforementioned bug)
