    Since you seem desperate, you can copy and paste the stuff between the tags into any other youtube URL.  Or in other words, put "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=" in front of it.  So you can find your Zero video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CTit_LC4js

    The priorities of the new thread need to be:

    Fix character image notations
    Fix links
    Fix the character length of posts

    This needs to happen first before anything. It is driving me insane. I can't update any of my OPs (my cap thread is 2000+ characters too long! two-fuckin-thousand!), my combos all look a mess, etc... Content before trivial perks and visuals. I can care less about the color palette, my concern is can I get the info I need easily from the forums.

    Ha.  For anyone else wondering: If you just put in a YouTube URL the forum will automatically turn it into an embed.  If you want to actually see the URL as in my previous post you have to switch to HTML mode and put an entity in so it won't get detected as a URL.  But if you go back and forth or go back and edit a post the entity gets replaced and the URL gets detected and the video gets embedded.

    So what should we be doing as far as notation for moves going forward? Should we keep doing :dp:+:l: style notations or will those be changed entirely and we should just post it as "DP+L"? I REALLY want those images back as everything is a mess without it.

    Hm.  Silly question, and I may well be completely dumb for not looking enough, but is it still possible to buy premium membership in the new layout?  I said in another thread that I'd do so if the site move improved the stability of the forums, and that's been taken care of in my experience, so I'd like to follow through on that.

    It's not a matter of getting the resolution right (I tried). They are scaling up the phone avatar instead of the profile image.

    Yup, see that little icon next to your name on the top right of the board?  That's what's actually getting scaled, not the avatar you upload in you profile settings. It'll get there, just need to be a bit more patient.

    @DaRabidDuckie you should add something about setting the Category Filter to "All Categories" for folks who can't see the 3S, MvC2, CvS2 and TvC forums.

    Dunno if I should have posted this in the themes thread but is there currently a dark theme for the mobile version? If not is it something that might be added in the future? Assuming that it is possible to do with vanilla.

    The mobile version of the site is really good imo but a darker theme would be more pleasant on the eyes and help to preserve battery when browsing the site for long periods of time.

    Hi, this seems like an appropriate place to post this.

    I can't seem to get spoiler buttons to work when there are multiple spoilers embedded within a spoiler. Example: Can't see any of the info in the spoiler under "Abel's normals" here: http://forums.shoryuken.com/discussion/143901/the-complete-abel-guide#latest.

    When I click the first button under "Abel's normals" it expands to 4 more more spoilers, but when I try to click one of the 4 it exapnds to it just ends up hiding them.

    I have searched around quite a bit and I can't seem to figure out what is wrong. I have tried using Chrome, IE and Firefox.

    Thanks in advance for any help/info.

    Looks like a bug in:

    /plugins/Spoilers/js/spoilers.js

    A mod could fix up each affected post on a post by post basis (we'd have little way of knowing what's affected unless you tell us) if we can't get a fix from Vanilla. :\

    Q: I made a post and it disappeared? Where did it go?

    A: Did it have a link or several embeds in it and not much other content? It could have been flagged as spam. One of the best features of the new forums (at least for the mods and admins) is the anti-spam control. Click on your profile and look at it for a sec. See that bit that says "unverified" or "verified"? That's part of the spam filter protection. Every time an "unverified" person posts a link that contains only images or an excessive number of flagged words, it removes that post automatically and puts it into a queue. A moderator reviews that post, and when they determine that it isn't spam, they approve the post for viewing and then get an option to mark that user's account as "verified," which means that they won't be flagged for spam anymore. Even so, people can still flag stuff for spam in case someone's account gets hacked or something.
    Serious question: How well does this anti-spam filter work? I still see quite a lot of spam getting through, but would there be a lot more without the filter in place?

    It was just a GD bot thread with a thread title of "So glad I registered" or something like that that popped up earlier today. I've definitely seen a bot thread like that before, too. That threads seems to be long gone, though, but I still see bot threads sneak in every now and then.

    You shouldn't care about the division between ST and HDR, but rather the message you are sending to tournament organizers if you stop supporting the classic style of Street Fighter II.

    Basically, the stars is your reputation bar. The more stars you have, the "higher" your rep is.

    Every time someone hits insightful, agree, or like, it gives you a point. You can see how many points you have earned by going to your profile.

    The point system goes like this: 50 points = 2 stars, 100 points = 3 stars, 500 points = 4 stars, and 1000 points = 5 stars(max level).
