    Whole sections of the Dormammu thread have completely disappeared:
    http://shoryuken.com/forum/index.php?threads/the-dormammu-thread.125050/

    Notably, in the Basics section, all of my headers are gone for each attack before the spoilers...

    Also, the text for all of my videos has been changed to a [ MEDIA], which biffed up the formatting; do I simply have to go through and change every single link back to a [ URL] like I had it before?

    At least [ SPOILERS] is back.

    Can any admin look into this? Karst has been running a gem of a character thread covering lots of things, it would be a real shame if things got lost.
    A lot of character threads have become cluttered due to the forum software change, can the old codes be reinplented?
    Or is it just a permanent change we have to live with?

    My understanding is that this system didn't even really work before the update. It was the empty shell of an idea that didn't work out.

    No don't. Report is for infractions and mod intervention.

    Actually as far as I know it worked quite well. People were just idiot about it, nominating good flame posts and stupid jokes instead of posts with good content.

    The flash ads embedded in the upper right can sometimes layer in front of the alerts box, so when I hover over the alerts it ends up underneath the ad. Doesn't happen with every ad but it seems theres a few that are forcing themselves to the top, so I'm not sure if theres actually a way to fix it on your end but it's annoying nontheless

    Also I'd like to see the post count feature come back, if it's not available and somebody can point me in the direction of APIs or something for the new forum software I wouldn't mind helping out and creating one

    Cool, I haven't used it in this way, which is why I posted here to make sure.
    I can see why it didn't work out in the past due to idiots using it to nominate whatever may be the trash of the day.

    Anyway to not automatically go to the first unread post in the thread? In cases like the Trading outlet, one usually wants to go to the first post.

    I have never been able to post a comment on a front page article.

    Enter in comment, hit submit, page refresh, nothing. Check a half hour later. Nothing.

    For some reason, some threads indicate that new posts are in a thread, but I can't see these new posts, or mine for that matter, unless I look at the forum via Tapatalk which, by the way, won't let you view more than the last page of a thread even if you try to go to a previous page.

    The only thing I can think of causing the invisible posts is that embedded Youtube videos do something to the display as I wanna say this is what all the threads that have this issue have in common.

    If you go under the main title there are numbers to the last page.

    So I'm having an issue now when trying to edit the first post of the Garou MOTW thread here:

    http://shoryuken.com/forum/index.php?threads/get-ready-survive-the-new-garou-mark-of-the-wolves-thread.43248/

    I just wanted to edit the smiles and add some new information but it's telling me I've reached the 20k character limit. I took a screen here:

    http://img824.imageshack.us/img824/3545/srkerror.jpg

    Does this mean I have to edit the post so it has the character limit now? I put a lot of work into the thread and it would be a shame to have to edit and lose information already posted. Any ideas would be great.

    so is there ever going to be a way to disable avatars like we previously could?

    forum looks so sloppy with avatars showing on the main thread list and the threads themselves.

    I am unable to post on the front page. It keeps telling me to "Log in to reply", and I have logged in and it still keeps telling me to log in. I have tried using IE9 and Firefox, both with the same results.

    Yeah. So the project was abandoned, and it didn't work.

    I didn't mean that it was a failure from a technical standpoint, but it was definitely a failure at the level where we were supposed to participate.

    I'm not sure if anyone has reported this yet, but when you change the title of a thread, I think the links to individual posts also change. Consequently, once you change the title, the old links to individual posts just stop working, and the links just take you straight to the first page of the thread. I can see this being a huge problem for match up threads. Is there a way to fix this inconvenience?

    It seems like that's how Xenforo works.

    EDIT:
    Tested it. Even when you rename the thread, the old link works. It just redirects you to the new link.

    Please increase the php memory allocation. The current 67MB is not enough and causes relentless javascript errors when trying to post in longer threads as it trys to allocate resources for the new posts. Try 256MB. Thanks.

    Noticed a sort of double post glitch. There are times when, after posting, the new post doesn't load, making me think that I didn't click on "Post Reply." When I click on it again, 2 new posts come up.
  • J.ScogzJ.Scogz Bye Joined: Posts: 2,378
    I have a question: Why is it that some posts become completely unavailable? Meaning, I see maybe half the posts on a page, then see nothing until a new page appears? I still can't go back and see the last xx amount of posts either. They just disappear.

    there's probably nothing you can do about that civic ad going around right now, but that popout ad is annoying as hell.

    Not only is it annoying as hell, but for me, it blocks my alerts drop-down box on the upper right, so I can't even see my alerts because of it. On my home computer this happens to me both in Chrome and Firefox.

    EDIT: nvm...looks like somebody already made a thread about this problem

    Came in here to post this as well. I also see a thread made. It covers my user controls, alerts, and my inbox. I have 3 alerts I can't get to because the add covers the drop down box. I use Chrome and Firefox and it is on both.

    EDIT:
    Did the font colors go away? I had a pretty big post that was color dependent on a few things. I edited this post a few minutes ago and when I saved the edit all the colors went away and everything is black font. I tried to reedit the post to get the colors back but the option to click font color is gone. Is this permanent? a glitch? The colors in my thread signify different things hence why this is important to me.

    Dumb Question:

    I would like to change my avatar picture for comments on articles from the homepage. How do I do that? I changed my avatar for forum posts, obviously, but my comments on articles are still the default image. How can I change this?

    2 weeks later the black theme is still unusable for writing (white text on white background), but we have amazing new advertising, amazing new blocks on the top of the page that take half the screen with useless information, and the bar on the bottom getting higher with every update (new "beautiful" advertising of the cola).
    If your purpose is making the browsing of SRK more annoying every day you're doing it perfectly.

    Look in the previous pages. I brought the problem up multiple times. And another user confirmed it, so it's not like I'm dreaming it.

    Before, spoilers within spoilers as in

    (spoiler= ST Character Movelist)
    (spoiler=Ryu) Hadoken (/spoiler)
    (spoiler=Ken) Shoryuken (/spoiler)
    (/spoiler)

    worked fine. As in, if you clicked the 1st spoiler, it would open up the rest of the text inside, but would not open up the subsequent (spoiler) posts. Now, however, clicking the main spoiler will open up all subsequent spoilers, and - even worse - clicking the subsequent spoiler sections will CLOSE the whole section and then you will be unable to open any subsequent spoiler section without essentially refreshing the whole page and having to look at ALL the text in EVERY spoiler tag within a main spoiler.

    http://shoryuken.com/forum/index.php?threads/june-10th-tapioca-express-ssfiv-ae-mvc3-tournament-in-elk-grove-ca.134187/

    Check the previous results in the first post in the thread above to see what I'm talking about. Unspoil one of the games and try to reopen it.

    Any way to make spoiler tags function the way they used to on vBulletin?

    I can't post in my regional thread. Koop recently made a new one for us a few weeks ago, but I haven't been online until recently to figure that out.

    So when I try to post in this thread, the boards tell me that I need to be logged in to do that. The first time that this had happened, I simply thought that my log-in had expired (like it did sometimes on the old SRK when i forget to check 'keep me logged in') so I just logged in again and tried to post once more. Immediately I get the same message. I've tried at least 10 times. all in succession.

    What's up with this one?

    EDIT: It happened in this thread as well while I was typing that message, lol. But somehow I just refreshed and it went through. This is so strange.

    Tried posting a comment on another front page article, this time in Chrome instead of Firefox. Still never showed up :\

    Like, can you be banned from front page comments? Not that I can recall anything that would warrant a ban. Just started happening to me with the site revamp.
