    Why aren't the recents on the front page not showing the forum they're in?  For example, right now there is a post from Loki that is about "anti-zerg stat" but you can't see the GAME it's for.  All you see is Characters, Skills, Etc sub folder (which is useless in determining if I want to read a thread).
    I was about to make the same observation, but got distracted (food arrived).  I was reading the 'This game is like EQ' topic that only said it was in 'General Discussion'.  No one in that post referenced an actual game, and it was only when I noticed the full directory name of Realm of the Fallen: General Discussions that I was able to figure out what game I was reading about.

    This really cripples the effectiveness of the site, particularly the Recent Discussions page.  Without context in the title, it's just a guess if I want to read that topic.  An error like this should never have passed QA.  Oh, wait.  We're the QA.
    Looking at the feed we get to populate the recent posts areas we don't get parent category information back from posts created in sub categories.  I know @MikeB has some plans to merge some sub category forums into their parent categories.  Possibly this will help.
    Working on this right now, actually!

    I think I posted this in the wrong place, I'll try to delete other thread.  I received this image, so I thought I would post.

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

    Heya. I have lost access to the thread about a game that was moved by moderator to ...Developers Corner/MMORPG Game Concepts

    All I see when I open the link to my thread, or this particular section is blank page with text: "Permission Problem, You don't have permission to do that"

    I can see this section in the mobile 'mode', but can't reply or do anything. Some help, please?

    Beta test results:  Tested changing account e-mail address and re-activation process.

    Everything went smoothly.  No errors.  Forum is happy.

    Ignore list has "Unknown" as ignored user.

    Since there is no ignored person, unignoring the user doesn't work.

    Those forums have been archived and are no longer accessible. I've moved your thread out of there and into The Pub.

    I'd like to be able to see which page i am on and be able to change it without scrolling all the way down each time. Funny enough, the forums do have that, but not individual threads.

    Also, i read that some (many?) people would like to display their favorite role. While i'm not one who goes around and fills such things, it's kinda useless to have it when nobody can see it. It's not like i need MMORPG to remind me of my favorite role. Also, if it's going to "always on", there needs to be a "no favorite/everything" choice, too. If you can enable/disable displaying it in the settings that wouldn't hurt, either, but it wouldn't be as "important"

    Also, while the page numbers are fine for me (could maybe be a tad bit more contrast, but it works).. is the search button supposed to be empty? I mean, just a blue button, no icon or anything.

    If anything was already mentioned here i apologize, unfortunately there is no overview. Adding an overview to the first page, displaying the issues you are aware of and (maybe) the "solution" would probably help sorting things out. You probably have one anyways (maybe in a text file on your desktop or whatever? ;) ), so just post it here.

    A quick suggestion.  The editing section after a post is edited, should be changed.  It's too big and doesn't need to be red.

    When clicking on a thread  it  goes right at the end of the thread at the last post.. is there any way to make it go at the OP first post/comment instead?

    The time stamp is to the left of the post, in blue below post count, forum role and rank.

    What about those of us who were featured as "Spotlight Poster"s?  I was quite fond of the meaningless title; any hopes of bringing them back so I can look upon my posts with false pride bordering on hubris?

    Replying to a news story rather than on the normal forums proper made the post completely ignore new paragraph markers.  Or at least I'm guessing that being a reply at the bottom of a news story rather than going through the forums to get there was the underlying issue.  Regardless, the particular news story that was the problem is here:

    Activity Section (like the Facebook page)

    You and Your are auto-linking to users You and Your, and those users don't exist.

    New Plural?  I'm guessing a translation file configuration default value that doesn't quite make sense in US English.

    @MikeB ;


    I'm getting occasional typing delays - the display is sometimes 10 or more characters behind. This is in Microsoft Edge. I'm not sure if it's the same in other browsers. It seems to happen more often if I quote. 


    EDIT: It seems to be just an Edge thing. No delay with Chrome or Safari.

    I have been a forum member for years yet somehow I can't make a new post because I don't have enough points.

    Really?

    Edit: because I made this post I can now make a post. Guys..

    Also WTF is the deal with me being uncommon and what happen to my join date on the left side? These forums have less functionality and more social media blingy bits that I don't care about.
      Member since Nov 2010 and I too am now a pleb who cant make new posts...what a load of bollocks tbh......
