Just a suspicion based on the terminology used in the software, it looks like currently anything with a tag gets classified as "staff". Hence why even moderator posts show up as an "Obsidian" post.

Thank you for being our collective voice, when we just couldn't find the right words to say ourselves. Such poetry.

That was the joke ... You know, following 3 people who already said it and pretending to be the first and only one?

Whoohoo! We got back the square avatars (with dem rounded corners). Finally I can see my ears again! ;)

Thanks a bunch!

Now please reintroduce BBCode mode! :p

PS: what about the background profile picture (cover art or something)? Will we be able to change that in the future?

The option to check the auto login stuff doesn’t appear to be available on mobile, at least not on the iPhone. Just mentioning that, though the 90 day cookie thing should apply to mobile as well.

Hm...  I now stay logged in on my phone just fine. Or what do you mean?

I think this is in reference to the "Stay logged in" checkbox that existed on the old forums.

With the new software, both mobile and desktop users automatically set an auth token via browser cookie.  To log off you have to do so manually, wait for the cookie to expire (90 days?, nope 7 days), or revoke a session via Account Settings.  It's a convenience for many, but for anyone using a shared PC, you may need to remember to log out, rather than assume the session will end when you close the browser.

I meant that the ‘recently used devices’ section in account management doesn’t show up on iPhone, but it shows up on iPad. Pretty sure the 90 day cookie thing also applies to iPhone, so, it works regardless.

Just came to note that I'm really, really happy that it keeps me logged in now. Super glad.

Anybody else having issues with the format buttons on the top (bold, italic, underline, strike through) not turning off easily when you tap them on mobile? The italic button seems especially problematic.

Can't say since I don't use those very often (I manually type the BBcode tags instead which is faster for me in most cases). But speaking of buttons: I have problems with saving posts when on mobile. The button will change from "Save" to "Saving..." but then it changes back to "Save" and nothing happens. Some Javascript hickup I guess. I didn't bother to look into the chrome console... :-

It's not a consistent problem though. ONly happens once in a while. But when it happens it won't go away - until I copy my text, reload the entire page, paste and then save.

Yup.  Looks like we spoke too soon on the long term logins.  The cookies seem to expire after 7 days now.  Oh well.

+1 to that, I’m seeing it here too. I thought it refreshed the cookie or something every time I visited. 

 

Also, quoting you didn’t also get boeroers quote that was nested inside for some reason.

Erm, I've just noticed that I can't edit some of my non-recent posts/threads.

For example I'd like to edit the top post in Attack Speed Thread (link), and the "edit" button is not there:

Have you disabled the ability to edit/update posts created before the re-design? If so, why?

That is correct! I can't edit the build list in the Deadfire's Character Builds subforum anymore!

That's... Booo?

am gonna bump this. 

at the moment, the obsidians ain't particular active with developing or posting, but is nevertheless annoying when threads is misidentified as having obsidian contribution. new patch for deadfire is released and predictable the offering spawns numerous questions directed at obsidian. if a mod replies in the thread, the thread gets the obs tag, which is resulting in functional clickbait.

amentep seems like a swell guy, so am hoping this is fixed 'cause am developing an almost  pavlovian disappointment when seeing his posts. 

HA! Good Fun!

"Those who won our independence by revolution were not cowards. They did not fear political change. They did not exalt order at the cost of liberty. To courageous, self-reliant men, with confidence in the power of free and fearless reasoning applied through the processes of popular government, no danger flowing from speech can be deemed clear and present, unless the incidence of the evil apprehended is so imminent that it may befall before there is opportunity for full discussion. If there be time to expose through discussion the falsehood and fallacies, to avert the evil by the processes of education, the remedy to be applied is more speech, not enforced silence."--Justice Louis Brandeis, Concurring, Whitney v.

What about BBCode mode? It's so hard to deal with quotes and other tags with the current editor. Posts with a bit more sophisticated formatting (see char builds for example) are a pain right now without it.

And can I now edit older posts? You know it's kind of frustrating that I can't edit the Deadfire Build List anymore.

BBCode mode is still sorta around.  The button disappeared in the newest version of the board software, but if you manually type it anyway, it will parse.  If you enter:

[b][u]Super List[/u][/b]
[list]
[*]Oh, an item
[*]Wow, another item!
[*][i]Italic item[/i]
[*][url="https://google.com"]google link[/url]
[/list]

It should display appropriately when you post or press the preview button:

Super List

  • Oh, an item
  • Wow, another item!
  • Italic item
  • google link

(Though, it doesn't remember your source BBCode if you come back for an edit.)  :(

Exactly - and try to edit a quote. Total Desaster!
