Switching the User agent string to ie10 pretty much allowed pasting,

I believe this forum blocks hyperlinks not sure though ?

Pretty weird interface,

Safe mode with networking,

Shut down your machine, Unplug-Hold the power button down for 30/45 seconds (Power Drain)

Power up and Tap the F8 key continuously until you see a black page with white text,

Use the down arrow key to toggle to safe mode with networking/ hit the enter key.

Login as usual

Other advanced methods,

Added to Safe Zone, no change. It must be the software, somewhere in CSS, JSscript or something like that, that I know little about.

I'm sorry but this forum software is not open source and our site is often a heavy target of attack and part of the issue may be related to other security measures taken to help keep the site online.

We have had over a quarter of a million members sign-up on the site and for the most part are able to use the system. We've purged many accounts over the years as well and yes there are a few users on occasion that do have pasting issues with IE but are still able to use the system. I'll submit for review with our Server Team to see if there is anything else they can do about it but for now you'll need to type it, attach it, or use another browser.

Thanks

vBulletin isn't open source either, but forums that use it can change the doc mode to be compatible with the most popular and widely used browser. xenfro also works fine.

Thank you for your input Britton but as said there will not be any forum changes related to this at this time.  The issue is under review by the Server Team and if or when they decide to change something it will be up to them.

 

Thank you again.

Thank you for letting them know, hopefully they will realize how inconvenient it is to switch browsers to use only one forum.

 

One more thing, the built-in spell checker doesn't work here with IE either.

The copy paste issue with IE 11 is similar to the problem that happened with vBulletin forums. You either have to change the document mode of IE 11 from Edge to 10, or you need to turn off the WYSIWYG  formatting (toggle the BBCode button in the upper left of this editor) to be able to paste again.

While I think it is great that you care to help, the fact is that browser statistics can be very misleading and using another site's breakdown probably will not reflect the audience of this particular forum. A couple of others for comparison:

http://www.sitepoint.com/browser-trends-january-2014-yearly-review/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usage_share_of_web_browsers#Summary_table
http://www.w3counter.com/globalstats.php

 

It would have also been nice if Ars Technica would have provided how they were breaking their stats down as that's the highest amount of IE use I've seen yet.

 

The point is, don't immediately trust other's fancy graphs, tables and breakdowns like that. As a web developer myself, I never rely on other's statistics. I run my own analytics, I can assume the developers of this board are aptly equipped with even better statistics of their user breakdown. :)

Can't edit, but please note that I'm not trying to provide justification of NOT updating site compatibility; simply that the issue in question may not be of the highest priority right now depending on how the demographics break down.
