@CJB:

I noticed that too! Not in that exact thread but in a couple of different ones. I'm guessing it's an error with some of the information being cached and retrieved in the incorrect order? But of course The Next will have a better idea

I don't know if this has been reported yet.

A new user in the AppGameKit Showcase has just joined today to post his creation.

The Thread appears in the Showcase with no posts. The Thread was completely empty until I posted something.

I am guessing this is due to the user being under moderation and his post is awaiting acceptance.

Im guessing the thread should not be created until approved by a mod? So we are not seeing empty threads?

Im curious to see if his post appears under mine when a mod approves it

This a similar to an occurance in the WIP section. The user and the intended showcase may not have be genuine.

Quote: "(to see images at full size, right click and select "View Image"... can this be fixed too - shrink them down if you must, but make them click to fullsize?)"


No worries CJB, it is a temporary measure to prevent firefox from allowing the image to bleed accross the page. I am sure The Next has a better solution in implementation since there is no straight forward fix for the problem as far as I can tell.

Good point.

Quote: "2. The Newest Post marker takes me straight to the first post in the thread and highlights every post in the thread - a bit weird when you can see one's own posts in the thread.

I'm using IE in case that's relevant. "


GG, the same is occuring in Firefox.

Quote: "I think we need a list of things to fix and things fixed in the first post of this thread."


This would be a good idea. TheNext will have his own preference for dealing with each individual problem; personally I would have use the Website forum board so that each post is dedicated to each concern and remains until resolved; however this sticky is in a prominant position to be seen I guess; the last post in that section was in February.

Hi!

Whenever I open up Google Chrome, this notification pops up from my pinned TGC forum website.
Please fix that bug.

Request:

At the top of threads, there is no breadcrumb that brings the user back to the main forum boards list. The breadcrumbs only link back to the board you're in (i.e. Geek Culture). There's no link that I can find that takes the user back to the main list of boards.

EDIT:

Found the link on the 'developer forums' banner. Can you put a link on the breadcrumbs section too? (i.e. Developer Forums / Geek Culture / Thread name)

I just tried to do about ten of these smilies... in a row to show my excitement over the new beta agk2 release and was shut down and told to "turn your caps lock off!!!"
I guess it is a feature to lessen yelling, but I think we are mature enough as a community to be trusted with our caps key (at least for smilies)

I guess we could do without that feature now, or at least disable it but leave it in place in case it becomes an issue again.

It could always be a moderated feature...If you abuse the caps, you get shut down for life with no exceptions of getting your caps reinstated.

EDIT: YOU CAN USE CAPS JUST THE WHOLE POST CANNOT BE IN CAPS LIKE THIS....CUZ WE R DA BEST FORUMS ALREADY

Hmm, I have been thinking of ways to enforce that. All of them seem impractical thus far.

Blocking messages written 100% in caps wouldn't work, because one could just add a lower case character or two.
Blocking messages based upon a high percentage of capital letters wouldn't work, as one could simply add lowercase jibberish at the bottom of the text.
Blocking messages based upon a specific maximum number of capital letters wouldn't work, as too large a post would be blocked even with a normal percentage of capital letters.

Interesting dilemma!

Ah I know, if I post contains too many "caps blocks", it would be blocked. A caps block would be a string of so and so many capital letters in a row. Bingo!

If you go to AGK UK Meet, on the first page it gives me a notice:

"This thread is locked as it hasn't been posted in for more than 90 days but you can post as a moderator!"

But as you can probably see, click on Page 2, and there's recent posts and we're able to post. I think that the error message only examines the dates on the current page instead of the most recent of the entire thread.

@All

Regarding the caps lock filtering, I will leave as it for now just because it has always worked in that way and I don't want to go messing with things I know work right after changing the whole forum software Maybe I will revisit this one.

As for the forum on mobile it should be much better now, with images fitting, the page being the correct width, better highlighting of stickies and the icons on threads should also show.

Quote: "Whenever I open up Google Chrome, this notification pops up from my pinned TGC forum website."


What is the url you have pinned, I don't get this popup. Hard to fix if I can't reproduce.

Quote: "It appears you have fixed threads not showing up until approved by mods...Although they are still appearing on the Fourm Home (Latest Posts) "


I didn't actually but I know why it happens, it is a bug with the moderator controls and won't be a quick fix.

The latest post text has and always will show the latest post, that may not yet be approved, just you normally don't notice as mods are quite quick at approving. You notice at the moment as I have asked some mods not to approve things while I test. The reason this happens is a limitation of the database structure the old forum used, as such it is in the new forums as well as we retained the database, I may fix in future but it is such a minor thing I don't think I will restructure how everything works just to fix that.

I will add in bread crumbs not sure when yet but I will

mobile display is much better now, thanks!

would still like standard zoom functionality to be opened up though, aside from comfort of readability, sometimes it is difficult to click something specific when many clickables are close together,

Have you tried CTRL-F5 to clear out the cache?
I only use Chrome, and it's fine.
Others have said you need to manually log out, then log back in again to clear out the issue.

Indeed it is, 100x better than it was Good work... One thing though, on the 'Main Boards' page, you cannot see the latest post information on a mobile, I use this a lot to see where new posts are. This also gives me an idea, would it be possible for you to highlight the boards which have had a new post in it? That would be really helpful... I.e. if there are any unread posts in a particular board, highlight said board in the 'Main Boards' page... Highlight them just the same as you would a new post.

The forum is looking great! I should take a look sometime at the old forum (on an archive) for memory's sake, but this is really looking very good now. Easy to adapt to, and the new features are very useful. Surprised I haven't been a little more colorful lately! Maybe that's a good thing.

The ability to post without reloading the page is wonderful. That feature alone makes the update worth it!

Not sure if this has been raised or not (did read this section first and may have missed it due to my old age). I jumped over to the FPSC Product Chat section and clicked on the "last page" for the stickied Black Ice Mod Official Thread. It takes me to the login (since I am not logged in). Never had to log in before to view a "last page", especially a sticky thread. Not that it is a bother really- I can click the thread instead to go to page 1 and then select the last page. I just don't always have time to log in every time.
There\'s no problem that can\'t be solved without applying a little scripting.

One thing I miss from the old forum is being able to hide board groups on the main page. I don't use DBP or FPSC so hiding them would be pretty nice

Don't know if it has already been reported, but the code snippet frames dont work properly when used with a dbp language
I have a window "syntax highlighter: cannot find brush for dbp"
and then, for example my thread https://forum.thegamecreators.com/thread/210701, some of the frames can be expanded, the others not...

On my android tablet, the code frame seem to be limited to a few dozen of lines.. so for large snippets I have a small scrollable frame, it is very very unhandy....

Yeah, that did not work. Nor does it make sense considering I was not logged in to begin with, but it is all good. According to KeithC, I am not crazy- he has seen it doing what I said it is first hand and he passed it on to whomever.

Thanks anyways.

I had the same issue and wasn't logged in, but logging out must run some code that clears out the problem. A log in/out/in fixed it for me.

CJB, the second 2 examples are posts that were deleted before being published. They should not be there, they were never live.
Dog Poo is actually real. You may not have seen it at first because it was posted by a new user. So I guess it falls under the same rule of needing to be invisible until approved.

Hmm, the "Developers stop relying on Steam" thread is reporting the latest post to be by "Forum President". Yodaman Jer isn't the latest poster of that thread however, and the board indicates the thread has 10 posts while there are only 9 visible posts in the thread.

I suppose that could just be a new member, on n00b probation, but it looks more like a bug.

Just found an irritable bug, unsure if already reported but, it is only a half cocked bug...

Editing a post, meanwhile new posts are posted, clicked edit reply, was redirected to AppGameKit board... fortunately my edit succeeded, but the redirect was... not pleasant especially if having just made a significant edit... could be a fluke event, but I never experienced this in the old forum... and I oftentimes made edits and left the frame open and had several new posts during the time...

Hope that was enough information to go by...

Odd, I have not experienced that exact bug myself (I've submitted several edits today alone), although I do recall there being issues with submitting edits right after the new forums went live (those in particular have been solved as of now).

mr Handy, literally almost EVERY other forum on the entire internet requires users to login to see the attachments, this is nothing new at all. And in fact hasn't this been a feature on TGC since... I don't know, years ago? I don't remember being able to see attachments unless I was logged in before.

Hate is a strong word and I highly suggest not using it again. The Next might get a little upset.

"Literally almost EVERY other forum" owners are jerks, let us be too?

When you google for some software solution, you stumble upon post like "hey this is simple just look at the screenie" or "here is the link for solution". And the screenshot or URL is only visible for registered users. Is it worth to create a one-time use fake account on every occasion?

Oh yes it worth.

Or some stupid shader demo on random site?
Or why stupid Kaspersky Anti-banner requires useless forum account to download it? Forum is not even a a tech support zone!

You really need bazillion accounts for every site?
Oh yes you need.

Since when TGC software upgrades and essential PUBLIC plugins should require a forum account?

Moreover, this forum already have so many answers and years of teamwork, so you even don't need to ask something just search, but now all non-text solutions are "broken" and you need an account... just because???
Trying to attract new new users?

Account should not be needed unless for restricted (hidden) content view like NSFW or dev board, or just regular posting messages.
Attached files could be uploaded on any other hosting and the links are still visible here for all YET, but TGC upload is made just to make files safe from third-party loss.

p.s. hate is the only word that describe my feelings every such time.

The only person being a jerk around here is you, Mr "out of TGC forever" as your location. Take your trolling elsewhere.

Mods, why did we let this known troll back in? He's attempting to bait this thread just for a laugh and I'm not gonna stand for it.

EDIT: Oh I see we no longer have a "report" button. So now I can't report his posts. Still, you can read them for yourselves, and if he edits them just read the edit history.

I'm pretty sure the report button only sent a message to the admin (as opposed to moderators), so it wouldn't have been too effective anyway unless the admin had some free time.

mr Handy you have an account, login and your problem is solved not hard at all. The change was not put in place to attract new users, the TGC forums have no need for new users that aren't using TGC products. It was done to prevent hotlinking to forum files from third party sites, which is why it is done in many other places as well.

In response to your bad attitude, much more like that and I won't have an issue with banning you again, your not making a very good impression.

Quote: "I'm pretty sure the report button only sent a message to the admin (as opposed to moderators), so it wouldn't have been too effective anyway unless the admin had some free time."


Yes it did, I will be implementing a new report system when I get some free time.

Quote: "Is there any reason we cannot have PNG banner images these days as the quality will be sharper... just wondering... as we have a new Banner Thread and jpg/jpeg images are too compressed for things like fades/blends... "


I am afraid we cannot do this easily. JPG files should be more than capable of nice fades and blending just ensure that you are not compressing the files too much.

Not essential just wondering

Also one more issue, the emails feel as if the whole message is quoted... kind of irritating as the message text is pushed away from the left side by a lot... for larger text users this is a problem EDIT on mobile /EDIT... no rush

Its seems that since the forum software update, it's been occasionally pulling text strings from the wrong places, thus making what you're experiencing quite possible...

I hope my username never shows up as a banned user lol

Mind you, the forum has become laggy, dropping out a lot, and about 15~ times slower than the previous forum lately... getting annoying...

Adding to that, I have noticed a slightly annoying, albeit not critical, issue. When browsin' the forums, I often click into blue highlighted threads to see the new post, then within a few seconds or so click back to the main board. When I do this, the thread I just saw will still be highlighted blue. The highlight does go away after several minutes. This does happen with every single thread I try it with. When I click back to a board after I've looked at a thread for a while, the thread will not be highlighted (which is the correct behavior). This simply indicates that whatever system is responsible for keeping track of what has and hasn't been read is a little slow on updating itself.

forum president user has been resolved.

The silver (and probably gold) code master images are missing, such as the one underneath my name.

Oh such saltiness

Good. My internet provider compresses PNG so they get strongly noticeable banding. Probably because I'm on tethered 3G, but still I'd prefer not to have to look at yucky low-colour PNGs when we have perfectly good JPGs Besides, you can set the compression level on JPGs yourself. If you set it to 100% it'll be just as perfect quality as PNGs.

Compression is not the issue as I apply 0% compression... I might have a go at creating the images at 460x60 and snip the 1 line off using my photo editor and see if that solves the issues with the artefacts at low resolutions

As I am in with a new dream job [Solid news in two days] I might just pay for the master suites if Adobe is still doing them... Well, I still have my other businesses ^^ but some seasonal change is always worth the chance

Anyway before I lose the chance to wish you all a seasons greetings, I hope you all have a safe and fun end of year and a great new year! I might have the chance on XMAS to post a new year post...

The Next, if you were in town and I have said this before, I would surely buy you a drink /



[ Clonkex I can now feel your pain to a degree, the 3G/4G in my new house area is not so speedy, { dang trees } and I have to wait around 2 weeks after today to get a measly 76D/19U Mbps fibre installed... I can get 152 Down and 18~ Up but I much prefer having a static IP and that solid 19Up on a business grade SLA something the other option/company does not have { 19Up } nor do they offer a static IP either at that speed... only on a lower speed 50 Down and 6 Up LOL Yes they work their uplinks at 12% of the downlink... ]
