RE: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
Regarding invisible pages and pages with no posts, I think it's because the database is confused by how many replies there are. (it thinks there are fewer posts in the former, and more posts in the latter)

With some research, there might be a recount option that admins can use. Has this possibility been explored?

Unless we want the forums to retain this quirk/bug for legacy purposes which I totally understand too.

So, several times today, the site's been tossing up an "Error 503 - Service Unavailable" page.

Is the sheer size of the Post Making Contest causing problems or is this just unrelated?

I think we could save a lot of memory and streamline the forum if we took all the personal information fields on our profiles and replaced everyone's bio and signature with this post

We could use the extra bits and bytes to make a subforum nested in Neo New Trollspace After Dark that's just 24 threads where we update each other on how gay and tired we are

I figured out how to do this, as well as fix the text under the banner!
I also rehosted the banner image for the Hawkspace/Buzzard Bee theme so now it's on the forum proper.

Also also I added a new theme, by which I mean a theme Wheat made years ago

E: (29/3)
Added three new emotes (It's Larry! Thank You, Please You are now Cobalt Ootkins and you are kinkshaming your crew ) and made the Posting section of the Help Pages a slightly-less-useless resource. Now includes a page with all of the emotes, their text shortcuts, and in some cases a link to provide precious precious context.

4/20 Suspiciously Vegetation-Free Updates:

- Noticed when moving a thread we had the old BBCode default thread icon for it, so I've scratched together some matching art for it.

- I also changed the little Unread Posts icons visible on the front page for subforums because that antialiased round nonsense was way overdue to go. I realise the gray-and-white was quite hard to read on darker forum skins, so I'm happy to change it back/find a compromise if it bugs too many people.

- Similarly, I altered the three assets which make up the bars on poll results. I tried to get a nice stipple effect with our basic palette but it turns out the forum just stretches out the middle bit

- Finally, some new emotes. Thanks Gime and Gen for hooking me up with those もしも~し


Edit:
4/28: Changed a few lines in our Welcome Newcomers sticky to make sure it's up-to-date with our #brand and #holdings 左電話自称霊能力者 霊幻新隆右電話

RE: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs+Changelog
I have two (two) suggestions.

1) You know that "finished forum adventures" subfora idea from a while back? I think I've shifted my stance from "We have so few, not needed." to "It's pretty hard to find finished adventures since they don't get bumped."
Only quip would be I'd suggest a lock on anything that goes in there to prevent the bumping issue.

2) Some kind of "Adventure of the week" dealio, where an adventure gets pinned for the week/day/month/fortnight/year/time period.

RE: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs+Changelog
Would editing a list into an OP of an existing stickied thread, editing the thread title so you can tell at a glance there's an index there, and updating the list as needed be acceptable?

E: I'm thinking This thread cuz it feels right for it to be in the discussion subforum, but we could also make a regular non-stickied thread in Discussion Town for Completed adventures in general?

The disembodied eagle head floating in the ether isn't a good look, imo.

RE: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs+Changelog
It might be fun to have a banner contest. There are lots of ways to change the Eagle-Time Eagle besides just a floating head. Again, this is more of a "could-be-fun" than a "needs improvement."

RE: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs+Changelog
So some years back, I made a list of threads affected by the off-by-one error. Schazer said it might be fixable now.

It seems the latest update magically fixed a few of these, including this very thread, but most are still showing the discrepancy. So I'm going through and checking again. Haven't gone through Forum Games or Adventures yet.

These lists are currently not organized in any particularly sensible way - I just modified the old lists, and I have no idea what I was doing with those.

Finished checking the Forum Games threads, everything there that had the problem still does, except there was one thread I couldn't find.

RE: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs+Changelog
So I finally got around to checking adventures for the post count mismatch.

Again, I just checked against my old list - though it seems I completely overlooked the adventure Monstrous in that list, as I didn't have it in either category and it would have existed at the time. It's got the issue, anyhow. Also, another thread has disappeared. The fanart thread corrected itself somehow, though.

So here's the list for the Adventures forum:

RE: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs+Changelog
That looks quite similar to the problem wheat described here. iirc Schazer may be able to handle that in the ACP

RE: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs+Changelog
This is probably a nitpick, but when I unsubscribe from a thread by clicking the "Unsubscribe from this thread" button at the top of the page of a thread, a box shows up telling me it's going to return me to the thread subscriptions list. Instead, it just takes me back to where I came from (the thread page). Should the message be changed?? I dunno

RE: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs+Changelog
I remember other people were having this problem, but all of the images have broken from my point of view.

They look like " [Image: blahblah] "
