    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.

    Internet Explorer dies a horrible horrible death if you try to open up any forum. This is on windows 10. The page will just freeze up and need to either kill the window through the taskbar by closing everything or when that fails 50% of the time then killing IE through task manager
    Is this using the new edge browser?

    Actually no, just loaded up edge and it works fine. Its the run of the mill normal IE 11 that hates the forums for some reason
    Got it. We'll test that. Thanks

    In the comment section, making longer comments seem to overlap with the 'flag' and 'quote' buttons, I can't read the last line (Chrome x64, latest version, Win7 x64):

    This one is a known issue and is on the list to fix. Thanks!

    When you hover over the items in the notification preferences they "white out" and you cannot read them.

    Are the "spotlight" poster titles going to be reissued?

    I will need to get used to the new forum in browser.
    The mobile version however is really messed up. Layout is really not neat. The page is completely white, I have no feeling at all where the different parts of the page are. Very confusing. It looks like those old HTML pages but with much more content (text).

    Is this what it's suposed to look like?


    Does not look like this for me. What device, OS version, etc?
    Samsung S6, Android 5.1.1 on both Chrome and stock browsers

    EDIT: It's fixed now for me. I opened the browser in incognitor mode which ignores all cache and I get a nice forum layout now even with colors. So I went back to normal mode, cleared the cache, and it works fine now.

    When you get a notification about new badge, like: "You earned the 2500 Comments badge"
    The You -word is a link to http://forums.mmorpg.com/profile/You
    Clicking the link gives error message about user not found.

    Please tell me which link you clicked on to get the ssl error. Also Firefox has extensions that will force all browsing to be done over ssl. 

    Just trying to determine what's going on. Any specifics on how to recreate the issue helps me out a lot. 
    I just typed http://forum.mmorpg.com in a new firefox tab and it didn't get the error, so firefox isn't adding the S from that.  I don't know the link as it was on the recent post list and I can't find the post as I don't recall the exact title.  It won't be in the firefox history as it never made it to the page.

    So to spell it out.
    1) I was on the main page (http://forum.mmorpg.com).
    2) clicked on a link in "current forum activity" section.
    3) the error came up.
    4) FYI, every time I went to that specific link it happened. I didn't have the problem on other links, although I didn't test for it.  So it could happen on other links.

    Hi there,

    Since the new forums have popped up when I click a link on your daily digest email for an article, the first time I click it just takes me to the generic MMORPG front page, If I click the link a 2nd time it takes me to the intended page..  Its all quite odd..

    Love the new forum look though by the way..  Much more modern.

    I think it was just a timing issue. I just got one. Maybe it's doing groups of users by thousands or something.

    You, Veepeeza, slyths, VaultFairy, devilution and 1029 others earned the First Anniversary badge.
    Thanks for sticking with us for a full year.

    This one may just require waiting a bit to resolve because many ppl are on the system.
    Nope. Manually granted it to you. Not sure why you didn't get it on first login.
    I too guessed it's just a timing issue, and that I'm stuck in the queue somewhere... not that I'd be in a need of badges, not a big fan of this web2 gamification fad of the last few years :lol:
    But if it should be automatic, then just an fyi note, it's still not working properly :wink:

    Only thing I find weird is that edits are shown in red. It's weird that it is so pronounced.

    Otherwise it's great, and the fact it is still a dark themed forum is great, I don't like white forums, way too bright.

    In the profile section, there's badges for comments, and I received a notification that I had received a 10K comment badge (but in fact, none of the comment badges for 10K or lower are lit up on my screen, is this a bug?

    Also, where's my badges for 15K and 20k :)

    Not really an issue as such, but on the main forum page having the game icons down the left is a bit distracting. It'd be better to have them on the right, since we're reading from the left.

    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).

    This one's known, and I believe @meddle and @skywisenight are working on it.

    It does not show the forums for that game like it used to.

    Perhaps look at the two posts above yours?

    Not sure how best to show the error, so I'm putting it as a post.

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

    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.

    Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.

    Most likely to be a stupid question, but is the "ignore" or "block" feature gone ?

    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.
