Hey guys, we're currently undergoing some site maintenance. Things should be up and running smoothly soon. Sorry about the inconvenience!

1. We are currently trying to restore some "disappeared" items like active topics, so if you don't have access to that, please be patient. - Fixed!

2. Webchat is currently undergoing maintenance, sorry. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_asleep.gif love it too!) - Webchat is updated and working (for now)! This should allow you IE guys a chance to see it correctly.

3. There does seem to be an extra line under the sigs and maybe 2 lines under the moderator controls for individual posts. I'm not sure how this looks to regular users, but I have about 3 lines worth of empty space. - Fixed!

4. There are multiple instances of some of the smileys in the post/pm composition screen.

Anything else you see anything that's funky, strange, or just plain broken, please let us know in this topic.

Just because I make the announcement I get the blame? Lol.

I actually logged on this morning to see that there was some stuff going on and decided to let everyone know that the site didn't just up and break. We (and by "we" I mean sipe) are on it.

@Oski - You just want the new version of the webchat because it has an xbox smiley. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_razz.gif

If you guys run across any other bugs, please let us know.

I have ignorantly been stating that the webchat version is 1.2 and 2.0 is available. I was incorrect. 1.3 is now installed as the module in Web Chat (SHOULD fix your IE problem Nytmair).

Version 2.0 hasn't been released yet. Please don't pester sipe about it, that was misinformation on my part.

I noticed when I came to log on things looked a little different.and when you go to make a post a click submit all of those options look different too. I'm fine with everything you guys are doing so far though.

Just dont mess it up like the latest Xbox dashboard update http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_neutral.gif

Yeah, Trials 2 SE stats are also absent.

You CAN now enter your various Gamertags from XBL, PS3, Steam, and Origin and have it show under your Forum Name to the left.

All the smileys make PMs a bit difficult on a netbook.

Yeah, I made a few sigs for friends as well, what size would you recommend? - Then I can resize them.

RetiredRonin
02-16-2012, 03:51 PM
I'll let sipe recommend a size, though I think his post was geared more towards the sigs with a banner and then 5-10 lines of text.

Also, I've updated the "bug list" with the duplicate smileys in the post/pm composition screens.

Ah ok, either way if the 500x100 is too big I can change it. When I made them I was just copying the size of yours. - Iron Warlords 350x70 looks quite good, perhaps that would be better.

View Unanswered Posts shows all topics that have 0 replies in chronological order.

View Active Topics shows topics that have new posts in them, also in chronological order.

They are not the same, good sir.

I didn't mention Active topics SIR :p I said NEW and UNREAD. I don't see a difference to them IMO

One or the other is fine (personally I didn't find anything wrong with unread posts its very useful) If you read the topics then they aren't new anymore.

Edit- I just re read your post and again I didn't ask about unanswered posts either lol geez shifty read :p

Jeeesh. I didn't notice them before, don't chop off my head, sir!

On the other hand, there is a whole topic about the changes to the forum, so maybe I should say "geez Jarr3tt88 read :p..." I think I will MERGE!

Posting is a real hassle on mobile for me.
The posting box is huge with a long gap from it and the submit button which is probably to do with the multitude of smilies on the left.
Also the cursor position can go off screen making it impossible to correct any mistakes.

Multi domain logging doesn't work because updated to latest phpbb so there might be auto login issues.

Both sipe and antti in here and my question wasn't answered, *sad panda*

New suggestion!

Is it possible that adding 'delete post' to ALL posts instead of only last post currently? That would be great http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/biggrin.gif

It works fine for me now. I cleared all the temporary files, folders, cookies, cache, forms, and passwords from my internet settings and voila it works fine. Posting has always been annoying on my phone so I don't generally do it (the same as text messaging really -I don't do much of that either).

If I instead browse to the redlynxgame domain, that appears to remember me.

Multi domain logging doesn't work because updated to latest phpbb so there might be auto login issues.

By default PHPBB support only one domain to be cookied. There used to be multi domain support (mod), but its not available because we have updated phpbb recently.
So currently redlynxgame.com is cookied and other domains won't keep you auto logged.

As said it will try to get it back but currently I have more important things to do.

http://www.redlynxgame.com <- Works

All of those search filters on the right are bound to your account and all of the left are global searches.

View unread posts = Topics that your account hasn't seen yet
If you visit any of those topics they will disappear from the list, or click "Mark forums read" at the front page, and then it will clear all of the topics.

View new posts = Topics that were created between your last logout and our current login time.
If you logout by clicking "Logout [username]" and then log back you can see that this is empty because no new topic have been made since your last login.

There you go Jarr3tt88.

View your posts = Topics where you have posted message.

Ok thank you for the reply! http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/biggrin.gif Then I guess a better question would be if I'm on the forum for awhile, which should I use to not miss a thread?

New or Unread?

Idea: a "karma" type system. Where you can give good post props, which could show under your avatar?
I would say do not have any negavtive options, because that would def get abused and be useless.

What would stop people with multiple accounts from giving their own posts props?

I can't speak for others, but I think each post should stand on it's own merit.

I dont know if someone else pointed this out but when searching for a specific topic, the keywords are highlighted in yellow and since most text is either yellow or white its almost impossible to read without highlighting all the text. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/sad.gif Is it just me or does it happen to everyone?
