Yes, polling is significantly impaired, so it's not an isolated problem.

Perhaps you should be more specific, considering I went in and did some poll-repairing last night and then a bunch of us got together and had a poll party with the explicit goal of checking to see if they worked for everyone. There were zero issues then, so you're apparently in a different situation and should maybe say more than just "it's broken fix it."

Clearly this is all your fault and you've ruined spoilers forever. Way to go. (Yeah, I'm going to look into fixing this, but I don't think it's going to be easy.)

I dipped a toe into the code and it looks like the various messenger slots are fairly hard-coded in. I'll see about changing them, but I can't promise much.

Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
[quote="name"] works.
[quote=name], without quotation marks, doesn't.

It would be a bit more convenient at times if the latter worked. Not that this is a big deal, it's just a little thing that would be nice to have.

Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
I appear to be doing something wrong with tags, but I can't figure out what it is.

This was the text I entered:

But this is the result I'm getting:

Instead of losing its colour, the last line of words instead lost its boldness and its font. It seems to have swapped around the intended effects? A fix for this or just a method of writing the tags so the correct effect takes place would be very much appreciated.

Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
If I recall rightly, phpBB3 isn't too smart about tags. You've got to 'nest' them properly so the "innermost" tags stay "innermost" (woo non-knowledgable explanations go.) So I think they should go in order:

[b][font=Sylfaen][color=#3a136b]The decision was uneasily made...[/color]

The Day has ended...[/b][/font]

testing that out now:


Yup, that seems to have done it. So if [b] and [font] are the "universal" tags for the piece, they go on the outside. If that still makes no sense, perhaps prod Pines about it.
Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
Ah, I see. I remember that forums always seem eager to have you arrange your tags properly but I never got why. Thank you!
Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
So I was writing a relatively big post for the politics thread but then I had lunch before finishing it and when I came back and clicked submit (or was it preview???) I was apparently logged out and the forum asked me to log in and I lost my post.

And I was all [Image: eaglecry-2.gif]

it is probably my fault maybe though?
Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
The logo on the top is very nice, but when I ctrl+scroll to make the text bigger (phpbb always has it just a bit too tiny for me to feel comfortable) the banner grows with it, messing up the pretty dithering! Could you fix the banner's size to a certain amount?

Sorry, Woffles, but only you can prevent forest fires.

Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
Could we please have an easier "code word" for registration? I know I am not always the brightest crayon in the box, but it sounds like some other users have had problems finding it as well. Is there anything wrong with perhaps bolding it? Or maybe writing, The code word is _____. I felt that I had read the Terms of Usage well enough, yet I skimmed over it. And the last thing you want on a newly-developing forum is a mechanic that inhibits new users from joining.
Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
Nah, we're going to keep the weird registration stumbling block. We may lose some potential members over it, but if they're people who aren't even on good enough terms with any of the people who are already on the forum that they can't ask them "hey what's this dumb "secret word" question about?" then I wouldn't be too rightly sure why we they wanted to show up in the first place.
Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
The idea seems sound enough but I would think that it would make more sense to stick the word in one of the parts that actually cover the terms that the user is supposed to follow rather than the otherwise irrelevant-to-the-end-user section about phpBB and their stuff. I read everything carefully except for that last part, (bit unusual even for my standards but hey) and then came to the registration only to go "Out of place word? Where was that?" and then proceeded to reread the user-relevant portion twice before looking at the bottom part. Eh, it works as is, but moving it a bit would make a little more sense to me anyway.

Re: Feedback/Suggestions/Bugs
I think it's a little unfair to call people lazy because they can't pick out the word partridge in the paragraph normally reserved for the most serious of business, and saying they lack reading comprehension because of it is even more of a stretch. Reading comprehension is about understanding what you read, not being the best at I Spy. Like JR I gave the thing a few good readthroughs before I really examined it with eagle eyes (tee hee), and by that time I had called bullshit and threw the block of text into spelling and grammar check. That being said, I'd agree that putting it slightly earlier in the terms or giving it its own sentence would be best, but it is not my forums.
