Please use this thread to politely and civilly request new features for the forums following our IPB migration. Do NOT post bugs or problems in this thread -- use the other thread for that. You CAN, however, post in this thread about features we had in phpBB and don't have in IPB.

Will there be a return of the song badges that C3 authors had on the old forums?

 

EDIT: Just read the read-me thread, fair enough.

I would love it if we could globally mark forums read like it was previously. That's about the only bone I have to pick right now. Otherwise, it looks great!

It's still there!  It's ALLLLLL the way at the bottom as a link that says "Mark Community Read."

Ah, so it is. It's hard to see. The background blends in with it.

Whoa, suddenly I thought I was on AtariAge!  Obviously they use the same forum software.

 

Speaking of AtariAge, they have "Messenger" and "My Content" links in addition to the "View New Content" link in the upper-left.  Those links are convenient shortcuts for getting to threads you've participated in and your PM inbox, and they'd be nice to have here.

 

I should mention I'm aware these links are also available in the pull-down at the very top right, but they'd still be convenient to have without going into that menu.

 

I appreciate all the work!

You have to remove the old one and search for C3 and add it back to your tapatalk. This is a new one so old one won't connect any more.

May I ask if this migration has anything to do with the supposed "Other Customs" submission and organization scheme that has been teased? :3 If so, HYPE! If not, I'm still hype because the forums look super slick now.

It is, and it is also because this platform has a far longer lifespan and we want this community to be futureproof. :) That's why pksage worked like days on this, so all hail the Webmaster!

Thanks. I tried searching, but eventually had to just search using the URL

All good now.

I promise this is still coming, it's just strangely difficult to get per-user title images working in IPB. It'll happen!

 

can the picture limit be increased?

 

This happened right after you posted, Sideshow's Other Customs OP got nuked because it had too many pictures in it. It's not going past this new limit, though; just make a second post after your OP if you need more visualizer image space or whatever.

 

I would love it if we could globally mark forums read like it was previously. That's about the only bone I have to pick right now. Otherwise, it looks great!

It's still there!  It's ALLLLLL the way at the bottom as a link that says "Mark Community Read."

 

I've copied that link up to the top, where it's now a button underneath the search bar.

Is there a way to be able to highlight a portion of a post and just quote that instead of having to quote the entire post?

You can edit quotes, even inside quote boxes.

Yeah, unfortunately I'm going to have to ask you to make do with editing quotes. :(

 

Now that we have an official bug tracker, which includes a Forums category, I'm going to close this thread. Please submit any future requests on the tracker.
