Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

PPM converter won't handle 1000ppm correctly

the ppm converter is faulty as it won't accept 1000ppm correctly and the system adds the , for 1,000 but then treats it as a decimal point where none should be.
so if you type in say 5321 ppm it automatically changes the input ppm text to 5,321 and shows the answer as if you had really input 5.321ppm

We've tested and were unable to reproduce the bug you describe. 5321 ppm is indeed automatically changed to 5,321 (only if comma is selected as digits separator). But the answer is shown for 5321 ppm as it should.
Could you try switching digits separator to "none" and see if it helps? You can change it in the settings box on the same conversion page.
