I thought it was an odd feature too. I feel like nobody is ever going to use a button to quote a post and PM it to somebody, right? Should I just change that to "PM this person", minus the quote? Maybe change that icon to piece of mail?

Also: Color fixes on the button icons, and within the Full Reply/Make Post/PM Authoring screens, are still going to be made. I just have had dick for free time recently. Looks like things are slowly winding down, though.

I like it. It was convenient for doing the 'here's your key' when I was giving out a spare Humble Bundle key.

Also, the 'quote' and 'pm this person with a quote' are nowhere near each other you crazy people.

Yeah, they are kind of on opposite sides of the screen. I find the "quote this and send a PM to the poster" button to be occasionally useful.

How is there an issue? The buttons are in different places.

I think changing the icon would help. It currently conveys the "quote" portion of its function perfectly, but the more important "PM" component is not conveyed unless you hover over it with the mouse pointer for a while.

But... it doesn't say 'Quote', it says 'Send PM'.

Ohhhhhh... wait, you guys are on the mobile theme, aren't you? (I'm still on the previous Brontotheme, which looks better on the PC and looks fine on my phone)

Dirty Santa '14 is up, but enrollment is down, and I feel this is because of two reasons

A) There's no forum-wide message going HEY IT'S UP
B) There's no thing at the bottom saying the hot new threads that everyone's posting in going DIRTY SANTA '14 20 times in a row

Any leet modz to fix this issue?

Hmm, I'll look into it. I feel like the news bar, at least, would definitely be possible.

Related to Lyrai's suggestion: You know how on the old board it says "Latest post by [user] in [thread]"? In this one it's just "Latest post by [user]", which isn't nearly as useful.

I think if people saw "Latest post by [user] in Dirty Santa" then it would call more attention to it.



(I'm also guessing that's the reason McDohl hasn't posted in the new KateStory, but really I should just PM him since he's probably the only guy who hasn't posted in it yet but might want to if he knew it was there.)

Yeah, I feel the same way. Haven't gotten around to checking it out, but I don't think it would be too difficult to fix.

Lyrai, I think I found a decent mod that does news. Going to try it out when I get some free time (hopefully tonight?).

I know that having the list of who posted where, like on the old forums, is possible. There was a sidebar on this theme that had such a list, but I removed it, as it took up a third of the screen. I think I could pull the guts out of that sidebar and stuff them back in above the forum listing.

MAYBE

I have a sneaking suspicion Mothra got the news bar working.

DARN TOOTIN'

Trying to make it look not terrible now.

Is anyone getting missing-character symbols when I use this:【 or this: 】

They could be more noticable.

See if you can get a midi from the FF7 soundtrack playing as they scroll across the screen, blinking.

Yeah, the thing is, if I make the font any bigger it messes up on mobile.

Open to suggestions, though. We can do all the styling we have in the post box, also probably HTML stuff.

Just added a [ twitter ] tag, for embedding twitty tweets from twitter:



Just put the tweet's identifier number in the tag.

I read that as "titty tweets" at first.
