Can the "Legacy Mortal Kombat Emoticons" be placed on top of the Flag emojis?

@Baraka_MK Done

Uhh... also, how do you add emojis to posts? It wasn't working for me when I tried, but now it seems that it's actually used as a "like" feature for other posts? Hmm.... Someone clue in the new guy over here.

@Baraka_MK Click the little happy face on the bottom right of the editor, choose the emoji.

When I click it, nothing happens for me. Unless I'm clicking it for a message that has already been posted.

You actually got rated downward on one of your posts because of the tone and language used, so the additional deduction was valid.

Posting rapidly is fine; we just have a small timeout before we allow it again.

I'd rather talk about this behind closed doors, but seeing as how there is no longer a way to chat with users, I've been forced to do so here. Where are the site guidelines? Also, how would anyone be aware that they committed a transgression unless they happened to notice a change in their inconspicuous "Dragon Points" total? I would think communicating with your users, when they've committed a transgression would be the best action to take. In my opinion, penalizing users would best be handled by first pointing out the offense that they've committed so that they are aware of how to avoid making the same mistake in the future. Or, give the user a chance to edit his or her post because he or she may not have been aware that they've even committed an offense, which is exactly my position at this point in time.

I was also under the impression that contributions to the "Fan Kreations" center would warrant an uptick in the total of "Dragon Points". Seems as though that's no longer a thing.

Also, post totals are still glitching. Sometimes the number increases, sometimes it doesn't.

Actually, we do, its the bubbles on the bottom right hand corner. You do need to be friends with a user, but once you are, just click on "Send Message" when hovering over their username anywhere on the site.

Agreed, and we've started adding moderation notes below those posts to make that clear.

We did; we don't now. Its still be decided whether we want to go back to doing so long term.

Numbers get cached for a minute or two; they do actually update and the view should update after that minute goes by.

A topic search option would be good.

Have to quote messages to type anything. Using iPhone or iPad. Cannot create threads. Also cannot see what I’m typing so my apologies for this if it makes little sense. Trying to create a thread about the cover art reveal but cannot :(

Having similar issues.

And word on what’s going on with this?

Nope. Standard iPad running a regular version of safari with zero plug ins.

When I hit post reply, a black box appears and doesn't allow you to do anything. You can quote a post and your keyboard will pop up, but the black box remains and you're basically typing blind.

Everything was fine the first couple of weeks. It only started in the last week or so.

You work with what you got...not what you hope for.

Hrmph. I'll have to get a hold of an iPad or an iPad emulator then to test. I can't reproduce the problem on either Safari or my phone.

I'll let you guys know as soon as I can see what the problem is :/

So I’m having to type this from an iPhone, but for some reason nothing shows up when I’m on my pc to reply to a thread.

I click reply and it’s just black.

I'm using Google Chrome and the ads are extending over and past the menu bar. I am unable to select anything past forums. If this was already brought to your attention, sorry for the oversight. Thanks

So this issue appears to have been resolved now. Thanks!

​​​​​​Just registered like 30 mins ago (which had some issues of its own, but ended up fine). Here are my initial thoughts, from using via mobile (iPhone X).

  • Default Sub-Zero theme is not very readable (actually, most of them aren’t)
  • Uploading a user profile pic simply didn’t work. It just did nothing after choosing the pic. Link version worked fine.
  • Mobile layout of the forum view (list of threads) is just... not good
  • No breadcrumbs within threads, to easily get back. Instead, have to use browser’s “back” button, which takes you back to the edit post screen (if you just posted a reply), then you have to go back yet again go get to the forums. Either that, or you have to completely restart your navigation from scratch.
  • No thread memory, so every time you return to a previously viewed thread, you have to scroll through every page/post and try to remember where you left off.
  • “Reply” button under posts within a thread doesn’t work. Click it, the word “reply” pops up, but nothing else happens, no matter how many times it was clicked.
  • Smiley (emoji?) icon does nothing when clicked
  • Uploading an image into a reply just inserted a giant black box, and navigation and editing became impossible. Had to reload the page and try again.
  • Editing a post causes the text box to become extremely narrow, and jumps all over the place while typing... if you can manage to start typing, since it’s a gamble if it will let you scroll or not.
  • Poll results on bottom left of the page are clipped off-screen
  • Random zooming/scrolling issues, especially when typing

Basically, this is the most user-unfriendly forum I have ever used. It has been nothing but frustrating. Try to use this site on an iPhone and see how long you last.

I post on TYM and Reddit (among others) daily with zero issues, and was just looking to find yet another like-minded community to join.

I would highly recommend upgrading to something more usable, like xenForo, which is near perfect.

I hope this helps you sort some issues out!

DDustiNN

Can you expand on these?

DDustiNN

Too dark? Something else?

DDustiNN
Uploading a user profile pic simply didn’t work. It just did nothing after choosing the pic. Link version worked fine.

Please disable your ad blocker. The forum and profile both use Imgur for upload, and if you have an adblocker enabled, neither will work.

DDustiNN
No breadcrumbs within threads

They are actually there, but hidden on mobile. I'll reenable them once I figure out how to have them not take up too much height.

DDustiNN
No thread memory, so every time you return to a previously viewed thread, you have to scroll through every page/post and try to remember where you left off.

Good idea. We'll get this added.

DDustiNN
“Reply” button under posts within a thread doesn’t work. Click it, the word “reply” pops up, but nothing else happens, no matter how many times it was clicked.

It actually does, but the box isn't auto-focusing for some reason. I'll look into it.

DDustiNN
Smiley (emoji?) icon does nothing when clicked

This is disabled on mobile and should be hidden; not sure why it is showing up.

DDustiNN
Uploading an image into a reply just inserted a giant black box, and navigation and editing became impossible. Had to reload the page and try again.

Same issue as the profile upload; please disable ad blocker.

DDustiNN
Poll results on bottom left of the page are clipped off-screen

Poll results?

DDustiNN
Random zooming/scrolling issues, especially when typing

This appears to be a bug in the editor we use, same with the box changing shape incorrectly. I'll have to look into why this is.

Wow, thanks for the speedy responses! Yeah I can’t seem to find the poll thing anymore. Weird. It was something like, which reveal character was most hype, and had percentages. But it was shifted too far left and I could only see the last digits of each one. No idea which page it was on though.

I’ll post some screen shots later for the themes. But basically the contrast between text and background was not easy on the eyes, when viewing the lust of threads. The Scorpion theme is perfect though.

Thanks man. Really hope the editor gets fixed!

There is, but it isn't enabled on mobile. I'll make sure to get that added to the mobile view as well.

Please hard refresh and take a look. I've implemented most of the changes, although the editor might still require an extra click to focus into. I'm still working out how to remove that requirement. Please let me know if you encounter any other issues.

Yeah man, seems much better! And notifications! Awesome. Is there a way to get the notification to focus on the actual post? When clicked on, it takes me to the right page, but all the way to the top of the thread.

I also noticed that the like and other buttons no longer take two clicks to activate. And I didn’t even mention that one, lol.

Loving these quick changes already!

Oh man, and a back link within the threads now! Perfect. Can this be added to the bottom as well? That way you don’t have yo scroll all the way back up to the top.

Keep up the great work!

Alright I got two more things, both regarding memory retention:

  • Is it possible to bold unread threads, and previously-read threads that have new posts?
  • When clicking on a previously-read thread that now has new replies since your last visit, is it possible to auto-focus to the first unread post? So you can easily resume reading the thread, instead of scrolling through all posts to find where the new stuff begins.
  • EDIT: Unrelated note: I posted this as a numbered list, and it still shows as such during this edit, but the post shows up as a bulleted list instead within the thread. Also the bullets are not indented and formatted properly.

    @DDustiNN it should take you directly to the correct part of the page. If it isn't, its a bug, and I'll have to double check that tonight.

    Sure. I'll do so.

    This requires post-view tracking, which is now planned, but I have to figure out exactly how I'm going to write it 😁

    It exists, but the search takes way too long right now. I'm working on replacing it with something better.
