can we have boxes on our profile for Windows Live/Skype names? those are pretty much the only messengers I use and somehow they're the ones absent from a profile!

Probably it won't be important for a long time yet, but redirecting new users to the Rules Page upon first login would be nice. Would work well in conjunction with the proposed list of helpful links. Although if this is instituted, there may need to be a few changes in the Rules Page structure to make people, Iunno, want to read it, I guess?

Before I was having this weird thing where I was unable to edit one of my posts (and only that one) but that appears to have resolved itself so nevermind.

Also I can't seem to vote in polls. I keep getting a 'The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.' message.

Yes, polling is significantly impaired, so it's not an isolated problem.

Perhaps you should be more specific, considering I went in and did some poll-repairing last night and then a bunch of us got together and had a poll party with the explicit goal of checking to see if they worked for everyone. There were zero issues then, so you're apparently in a different situation and should maybe say more than just "it's broken fix it."

Clearly this is all your fault and you've ruined spoilers forever. Way to go. (Yeah, I'm going to look into fixing this, but I don't think it's going to be easy.)

I dipped a toe into the code and it looks like the various messenger slots are fairly hard-coded in. I'll see about changing them, but I can't promise much.

The page titles should now be [Whatever] * Eagle Time. (For anyone who ever runs phpBB in the future, just know that there are a number of things that require you cracking open some PHP that don't seem like they should. Page titles: one of them. Seriously, it seems like a grab bag whether something is going to be a simple fix or whether it'll require tracking something through code to where it's eventually defined.)

[quote="name"] works.
[quote=name], without quotation marks, doesn't.

It would be a bit more convenient at times if the latter worked. Not that this is a big deal, it's just a little thing that would be nice to have.

Hardly an urgent thing but I was wondering if at some point it would be possible to have more than five links in a signature?

I appear to be doing something wrong with tags, but I can't figure out what it is.

This was the text I entered:
Spoiler :
Code:
[color=#3a136b][b][font=Sylfaen]The decision was uneasily made, and the sun dipped just out of sight below the horizon. With light still prevailing the guests found  it too early to sleep, yet too late to make any alterations to the judgement they had chosen.

And so, just as they would have on any other night, the inhabitants of the Last Resort made their way to the bar.

They drifted towards it in small groups, falling back into the old habits. Soon talk began to rise up amongst them, and as they arrived at the bar a soft layer of chatter had begun to mingle with the other sounds of the room: the gentle splash of water in the fountain (muffled by its distant location in the courtyard), the uniform clinks of glass from behind the bar and the calming classical music infiltrating the room via gramophone. Through a glass ceiling the first stars could be seen to appear in the sky, their bright coldness an appealing contrast with the warm gleam of the polished brass that pervaded the building's décor.  

If you put aside the memory of the gory events of the morning and focused on the moment, it could have been any other night in the hotel.

But then your ear would catch a snippet of conversation. Words like 'lynch' and 'death' would waft towards you, and every now and then you would see someone cast a glance at the doomed man.

No, this was no normal night at the Last Resort. You have a feeling that things would never be the same in this once peaceful place.[/color]

The Day has ended, and the Twilight has begun. This will last 24 hours. The votes are frozen, but you may still talk. After this has ended the lynch of AKillerCuppaTea will take place and Night will begin.[/b][/font]

But this is the result I'm getting:
Spoiler :
[Image: Example.png]

Instead of losing its colour, the last line of words instead lost its boldness and its font. It seems to have swapped around the intended effects? A fix for this or just a method of writing the tags so the correct effect takes place would be very much appreciated.

Thanks!

If I recall rightly, phpBB3 isn't too smart about tags. You've got to 'nest' them properly so the "innermost" tags stay "innermost" (woo non-knowledgable explanations go.) So I think they should go in order:

Code:
[b][font=Sylfaen][color=#3a136b]The decision was uneasily made...[/color]

The Day has ended...[/b][/font]

testing that out now:

Spoiler :
The decision was uneasily made...

The Day has ended...

Yup, that seems to have done it. So if [b] and [font] are the "universal" tags for the piece, they go on the outside. If that still makes no sense, perhaps prod Pines about it.

Ah, I see. I remember that forums always seem eager to have you arrange your tags properly but I never got why. Thank you!

So I was writing a relatively big post for the politics thread but then I had lunch before finishing it and when I came back and clicked submit (or was it preview???) I was apparently logged out and the forum asked me to log in and I lost my post.

And I was all [Image: eaglecry-2.gif]


it is probably my fault maybe though?

The logo on the top is very nice, but when I ctrl+scroll to make the text bigger (phpbb always has it just a bit too tiny for me to feel comfortable) the banner grows with it, messing up the pretty dithering! Could you fix the banner's size to a certain amount?

Sorry, Woffles, but only you can prevent forest fires.

(That's not really a thing that I can do, but your web browser should have a setting to "Zoom Text Only" or some such.)

Oh, hey.

We're officially done with that "Closed beta" shit; there's a still a few bits and pieces I need to nudge Pinary to wrap up at some point but otherwise you're free to invite peeps in.

Could we please have an easier "code word" for registration? I know I am not always the brightest crayon in the box, but it sounds like some other users have had problems finding it as well. Is there anything wrong with perhaps bolding it? Or maybe writing, The code word is _____. I felt that I had read the Terms of Usage well enough, yet I skimmed over it. And the last thing you want on a newly-developing forum is a mechanic that inhibits new users from joining.
