    So, will we ever be able to see what's on the front page from the forums, like on the previous layout?
    They might bring it back if they find a way to do it, although I'm not sure since a LOT of people complained about it when it was there.

    I'm not the only one seeing the game specific forums being mashed together right? For example, when I look at the Street Fighter X Tekken Character Discussion, there's characters from Mortal Kombat, MvC2, etc all mixed in there. It's a mess.
    Nah, it's like that for everyone. Wiz is still working on it but it's being a total bitch as far as I know.

    Got an update concerning the issue of subforms being in the wrong sections:

    "We should be able to fix it on Thursday of the upcoming week. There are some caching problems on this server, so they have to step in and correct it."
    Got a question or gripe about the new forum software? It might be covered in the FAQ.

    Request
    A flag for threads made in wrong section.

    I would think this is what the "off topic" flag is for. It doesn't have to be limited to the scope of the site, but I assume it's applicable down to the thread level, even.
    Off topic doesn't get the mods attention.

    Anyone know what the "Promote" reaction means yet? I see it everytime I go to my profile to check notifications and stuff, but I got no idea what it means. Kinda like the level star to the left under our usernames.

    Ok, a rather situation-specific question here -

    http://forums.shoryuken.com/discussion/165165/february-1st-tapioca-tea-ssfiv-ae-umvc3-tournament-in-elk-grove-ca/p1 - in the first post

    I run tournaments and try to keep a running results list in the first post of every thread for that specific tournament. I've been running them for quite awhile now and have a bunch. With the new forum transition, there seems to be a new character limit per post; I have no gripe with that. However, I can no longer view all of the results in the spoiler tags in edit mode, and when I click "show source", it shows it but with <div class> codes and other HTML. Am I out of luck? Will I not be able to get the post the way it was formatted in Xenforo?

    It's weird because in normal viewing mode, I can click every spoiler tag and see everything that was there before the transition. I just want to be able to have the simply formatted post so I can just break it up if need be to meet the character limit next time I start or edit a thread.

    I dont if this was covered somewhere else , but..

    I made a post in Image Mishmash section in the Hot Asian Girl Thread comprised mostly of pictures.
    When I clicked "post comment", it said" Your comment will be posted when content is approved"
    It never appeared, but I was able to post images in hot white/bhl girl threads just fine.
    New feature or glitch?

    Thanks!

    Hopefully when everything else is ironed out, they'll be able to customize it so that it can.

    Since you seem desperate, you can copy and paste the stuff between the tags into any other youtube URL.  Or in other words, put "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=" in front of it.  So you can find your Zero video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CTit_LC4js

    The priorities of the new thread need to be:

    Fix character image notations
    Fix links
    Fix the character length of posts

    This needs to happen first before anything. It is driving me insane. I can't update any of my OPs (my cap thread is 2000+ characters too long! two-fuckin-thousand!), my combos all look a mess, etc... Content before trivial perks and visuals. I can care less about the color palette, my concern is can I get the info I need easily from the forums.

    Aw, a lot more stuff works in the editor and then gets stripped out when actually displayed. I miss my <blink> tag :(

    Ha.  For anyone else wondering: If you just put in a YouTube URL the forum will automatically turn it into an embed.  If you want to actually see the URL as in my previous post you have to switch to HTML mode and put an entity in so it won't get detected as a URL.  But if you go back and forth or go back and edit a post the entity gets replaced and the URL gets detected and the video gets embedded.

    So what should we be doing as far as notation for moves going forward? Should we keep doing :dp:+:l: style notations or will those be changed entirely and we should just post it as "DP+L"? I REALLY want those images back as everything is a mess without it.

    So what dimensions should our avatars be uploaded as now?
  • HisakiHisaki Pro Lurker Joined: Posts: 22Registered
    Hm.  Silly question, and I may well be completely dumb for not looking enough, but is it still possible to buy premium membership in the new layout?  I said in another thread that I'd do so if the site move improved the stability of the forums, and that's been taken care of in my experience, so I'd like to follow through on that.

    It's not a matter of getting the resolution right (I tried). They are scaling up the phone avatar instead of the profile image.

    Yup, see that little icon next to your name on the top right of the board?  That's what's actually getting scaled, not the avatar you upload in you profile settings. It'll get there, just need to be a bit more patient.
