Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
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!

Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
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?

Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
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.)

Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
[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?

Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
I appear to be doing something wrong with tags, but I can't figure out what it is.

This was the text I entered:
SpoilerShow

But this is the result I'm getting:
SpoilerShow

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!

Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
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:

SpoilerShow

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!

Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
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?

Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
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.)

Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
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.
