Yes, this is the same wordfilter function. We actually have wordfilters in place to automatically correct the most common misspellings of "Asuka" and "Kaworu" because seeing them spelled wrongly all the time can become annoying. What happened on April Fools' Day was a deliberate prank, but the "que"->"cue" wordfilter was an unfortunate case of an anti-annoyance utility lasting long enough to become an annoyance of its own.

From what I have read, the linguistic situation in New Mexico is somewhat confusing, with no "official" language, but with the state being "English Plus" and having its own form of Spanish.

Yeah, it happens all the time. I have a trick to deal with this, though. Always CTRL-C your posts before uploading them. That way, you won't lose paragraphs of text after being logged out.
That actually happened to Berserk EVA-02 once. It was a shame.


That sounds like a browser issue rather than a site issue. You checked the option to stay logged in, right?

Yeah, you're right. It seems like New Mexico's constitution doesn't specify an official language.That said, laws are published in English and Spanish. It is the government's job to ensure that materials and services are made available to speakers of both languages. It's similar to what happens in Louisiana (where services and documents are offered in both English and French).
The US does not have an official language at the federal level. It's up to each state to define (or not) these things. Both Hawaii and Alaska, for example, have more than one official language. This is crazy, but it makes sense.
Anyway, New Mexico's Spanish dialect is indeed "different". I actually know some Spanish, but I'm used to the Argentinean variation.

I don't know exactly what causes it, but I'm frequently logged out from the site. Usually it doesn't bother me. It gets annoying once I'm actually trying to post something. I click on the submit button, but as I have been logged out from the forum, it asks me to log in again. That, in turn, causes my entire post to vanish. It's hard to explain. This happens both on my cell phone and on my computer. Interestingly, this doesn't happen on the wiki, where I'm always logged in.
I have noticed some patterns. It happens when I go from one device to another, for example. Other times it's just random.
Just sit here and waste your precious time. When you want to do something, don't do it right away. Don't do it when you can. Read my posts instead. It's the only way to live a life without regrets.

It's exactly what happens to me too. Sometimes I even click to submit a reply, and then I get a message telling me to log in, or that the forum does not exist if it's in the Shin subforum. I recall something similar happening about a year ago too.

I've never been able to find a reason for this. It's never happened to me, but some people can't escape it. I usually mutter something about cookie permissions or https and hope it'll go away (which it doesn't)...

It stopped happening to me after I switched from Chrome to Brave. Might have something to do with it?

Every time I try to type the word "q-u-e", it doesn't work. Instead, I'm greeted by "c-u-e".
I can explain this one. At least one poster (names withheld to protect the guilty) was, maybe still is, in the habit of wanting to type a word pronounced /kju/ by splitting the difference between "queue" and "cue" (when meaning the latter).

Both front page (https://evageeks.org/) and the EvaWiki (https://wiki.evageeks.org/) is down; I get a HTTP error 522: connection timed out.

Ornette's server hosts the Front Page and the Wiki, so I sent him a message on Discord letting him know about it. Getting in touch with him via Discord or email is usually the way to go if there's a 522 error.
