IRRC, some forums only list the post as having been edited after another user has added a new post; such that unlimited edits are possible—so long as it is the most recent post in the thread. 

 

This is my preferred method.

So Marceror, have you given up or can we catch you on this thread again in 2019?

If I haven't given up in 3.5 years....

 

The way things are "progressing" you may be seeing me at this for a good while longer than 2019, so ya'll have that to look forward to. I'm hoping that at some point, if for no other reason than sheer embarrassment at their public lack of unresponsiveness (or whatever the reason), someone at Obsidian will, at last, provide some level of (semi)official reply. Or not....

 

But yeah, I think I'll keep carrying the ole torch. ;)

Maybe you would have better luck sending your request to: support@obsidian.net :thumbsup:

 

I guess it couldn't hurt at this point!

I think this stems from a general misunderstanding of the function, or purpose, of these forums. Obsidian pretty clearly maintains these forums as a place for fans to interact. Even the moderators are fans. There doesn't seemed to be any type of paid community manager. It isn't really used as a platform for the company to interact with the public. The developers occasionally pop on, but in a fairly casual capacity rather than something official. 

 

So yeah, just enjoy them. They are free. :p

Are you suggesting that Obsidian fans should not feel empowered to ask questions or make suggestions about the Obsidian forums?

You already did that nearly 4 years ago. You are way past that at this point.

Yes, because I would not agree with such an assertion. But the fact remains, you haven't answered the question. ;)

Of course there is a community manager - and a nice one at that. Search the member list for Aarik D. :)

The question was: "Are you suggesting that Obsidian fans should not feel empowered to ask questions or make suggestions about the Obsidian forums?"

 

It was a yes or no question. You've not provided a yes or a no response. So no, you've not answered my question. You merely responded with a non-answer. ;)

What can change the nature of the quote function?

I mean, I could. But since I asked the question that I meant to, I’m not really inclined to do so.

I, of course, accept that you are under no obligation to answer more directly. The implied answer seems to be that yes, you’re in favor of censoring questions to the devs. I was just giving you a chance to clarify otherwise.

It stems from a feature of these forums that I happen to find asinine. I have a better chance of getting it changed if I say something, rather than not. I'll concede that my chances aren't looking great after 3.5 years, but what can I say, I'm stubborn. And these posts don't cost much to make.

Yes, pls someone fix the not working line breaks in BBCode post mode. :>


This is still not fixed either, no? Can't check right now, because of mobile phone. Does the forum getting any updates anyway? What about security issues? I had my data stolen on quite a lot boards in the past couple years, seeing my "have I been pwned?" counter steadily go up. Makes me wonder when the Obsidian Board will show up on the list.
