New Forum Software FAQ (WIP) for Vanilla


#41

Man i  dont care about the colors, I  just wanna be able to watch the you tube  videos that were posted here in different character forums, with this new layout  you guys screwed up the entire strategy forums. Im SHOCKED no one has complained  about it.  WTH??? Right   where there was suppose to be videos  i just see links like <b style=“box-sizing: border-box; color: rgb(34, 34, 34); font-family: Helvetica, Arial; font-size: 15px; line-height: 18px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);”>[media=youtube]5CTit_LC4js[/media]  </b>  WTH is that? did someone just posted the solution and i didnt read it?<br>EDIT: now i saw a bunch of recent videos that were posted after the layout change  but still, I need to watch the old videos! is that still posible ???

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<br>

The priorities of the new thread need to be:<br><br>Fix character image notations<br>Fix links<br>Fix the character length of posts<br><br>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.<br>

Is html going to be removed?</div>

#45

Just dropping a line of encouragement: the forum seems a lot faster now than it did before the changes. So thanks. :)<br>

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.<br><br><br>


#49

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.<br>


#50

So what dimensions should our avatars be uploaded as now?<br>


#51

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.<br>

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.

How do I make an about statement underneath my avatar? I can’t find the option in edit profile.


#57

where do i find my drafts i saved?


#58

Is there a way to see my subscribed threads through the mobile site?


#59

@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.
