    Hmm, it gave a (non-descript) server error earlier, seems to work now though...

    Oh, so this is why the forums weren't working a while ago.
    Hmm. Why aren't the user names properly capitalized?

    Testing, 123! Well, this is certainly an interesting way to use a forum, now that I see it in action.

    Any chance tagging will be done soon? I've already noticed a slight (As in not software-related, therefore not immediately important) problem with not being able to figure out what some of the topics are about without opening them because they don't have key words in the title. (Namely, the thread called "Will everything work with wine / linux x86_64?" is actually about Driftmoon.)

    Oh, and I think threads with new posts should be highlighted, rather than threads that you've already read greying out.

    With all these topics transferred to this place, we could sure use a "mark all as read" button.

    Wow, the forum update has sure done wonders to it's activity.

    I'm in favour of tagging, or something of the kind. We actually discussed it earlier, but let's see what Ville says about it now.

    This is a cool feature for you to check: Click on the quote I just made (or rather the name of the quoted person), and you'll be zoomed right to the original post! Neat, isn't it!

    And I suggest you also try sending some private messages. They work smoothly. Did so yesterday anyway.

    Did you notice this: If you want a pal of yours to read a topic from a predestined point onwards, you can get the direct link to a certain post in the topic by clicking on the symbol # to the right.

    Hey there's a reply box already there for you, neat!

    Too bad the box doesn't fit in the designated forum area, but I'll let that slide for now.

    EDIT: Also got some sort of error when first posting this message.

    The text area looks ok to me, which browser are you using?

    There seems to be some errors when posting sometimes, it's colliding with post id numbers from the previous forum.

    Firefox. Haven't tried with others.

    Yeah, true. The reply box changes size during scale-up or scale-down, but is "jumping" in size, never appropriate to the actual forum wall width. Firefox 6.0.1, reports to be the latest right now.

    @EDIT
    I think I'll miss the olde "go to the first unread post" button.

    That should actually be the default functionality right now. Doesn't it work?

    Yes.
    Good.
    Ok.

    Seems to work now, didn't seem to earlier today.

    I wonder if it could be that it didn't work the first time you opened a topic, and clicked open the last page, but started working right after you'd done that? I remember wondering about the same thing first, when testing the forum.

    That is to say, all posts in the new forum are marked as unread to each user, until you open the last page of a topic for the first time. After you've done that, opening the same topic should take you directly to the last unread. Do you think that could have actually been the case?

    Hmm. What about the smilies?
    Do you have to put in the code that you saw when smilies where imputed?
    Edit: You do!

    One problem with the new forum is that the topic list is flat, currently there are no subtopics. Other than that I like the new format.

    I'm using Firefox Aurora 8 and I've got the text box issue too. I thought it was on purpose at first. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I can drag the corner of the text box to change its size? Or can everyone do that?

    I wanted to test it for now, I'm liking that I can see what's happening at the forum in one go.

    I kind of prefer it this way. At least for our needs it's an improvement.

    Sorry, the usernames lost their capitalization due to a slight error. I hope you can live with it, but if you absolutely can't, I'll fix it for everyone who asks.

    I think I fixed the private mails. Had to store them in a separate location to avoid collisions with non-private threads.

    Also, the Updated x units ago thing is also nice.
    Gives us one righteous reason more to lynch thread necromancers!

    Necromancy is good. Have you never played one?... no wait, where am I...

    Could be, but I mean going not to last page, but to first unread post, which it doesn't. Right now this page is first AND last, right?
    @EDIT
    WAIT A MINUTE
    Now it does. I'm an idiot. The firefox didn't manage to log me in automatically and I'm so lazy...
    @2nd EDIT
    Now it does not again. What's going on?!

    Also, editing text with html tags seems more tiresome now
    I never had it a problem opening reply in another tab. Now I even see it was kind of even better :/

    @11235423rd EDIT
    Also, no user-provided links? They're not clickable anymore.

    HTML tags use , BBCode tags use []. Since I've yet to see any successfully parsed HTML-tag-using post on this forum, I'm fairly certain you meant BBCode.

    Let's test linking:
    http://www.instantkingdom.com/driftmoon

    Linking works ok when you use BBcode. Most of you know this, but info for some: Link by writing the thing below without the spaces:
    [ url ]the complete link[ /url ]

    Ok, this is awkward. Have you folks tried pressing the "Forum" button when already in the Forum?
    #
    Narvius 5 years ago
    I just did. Yes, awkward.

    Also, @BBCode:
    Since a rich-text editor is probably some time away, you might consider, for now, showing possible BBCode tags under, above or next to the editing box.

    Also #2, show who last contributed to a topic.

    Of course! I just forgot what its name is. Thanks
    The angle brackets don't show up. Is that on purpose?

    Yes, we're removing all html from posts to prevent breaking the layout. I could just allow some html tags, but I realized it would take many hours to make a parser, so I decided to leave it for now.

    Why don't you just escape them, so we can talk about HTML, at least?

    Also, I am kind of obsessive about my username being capitalized as MageKing17, so whenever you have some free time...
