Hmmm, just looked at it through non-admin settings and you don't have that same option.  I can manually change yours, Gud, and yours too, Cindy, if you let me know what it needs to be.

Yay thank You!

 

mine should be

It's called unread content now, I see it bottom right and sometimes up top right. Much more difficult for me to find on the phone, but the site in general isn't great on the phone.

 

as noted above, there appears to be a glitch with the unread content but sometimes it works.

Is there a "New content" button anywhere?

There should be an "unread content" button in the top left-ish of your screen.

 

I think.

 

 

Also, for the name tweaks, we'll have to manually update them back to what they should be....not sure how that happened, but it seems pretty widespread.

Does someone need to start a thread for this, or do the admins have records of what the display names should be?

Someone really needs to help Leyrann.

Here's a weird glitch - I've edited the title of a thread (the roll call one) twice now, but it keeps reverting to the original (it asks me to confirm that I'm not a robot - is that the new normal?). I've done it a 3rd time now - hope i will stick.

When replying to a thread(not a comment, just replying to the thread) in the brown Ajah, without doing anything but clicking in the post field, it pasted the last post I had made in that thread, the day before, into the reply.

 

i went out of the thread and retried it 3 times and the same thing happened.

 

to document it, I just put the old text in spoiler tags and wrote my new post.

 

when I saved the post, the whole thing was in spoiler - I think I'm noticing that end tags don't always work?

[spoiler]blah blah Anna karennina dies at the end blah blah[/spoiler]

 

like that.

 

oh also when I tried to go back in and edit that post, it wouldn't let me edit anything that was spoilered or add any text to the comment. 

 

Brown ajah library fwiw, last page or two.

We don't have records of that, so we'll need to have a consolidated thread that we can work through once we're back online.

I’ve experienced this too, Elgee.  I attempted to edit a post at least a dozen times.  I reported it to the other admins and Jason was able to edit mine no problem.  When I tried again, it worked!  But then I edited another post and it didn’t work again.

I’m finding that editing a post in small batches (yes, this is a pain in the butt to do) has worked better.  For example, I’d edit the first paragraph and save.  Re-enter and edit the second paragraph. My success rate was much higher.

This happened to me as well, Cindy.  I just erased the copied text and wrote what I wanted to.  It didn’t inconvenience me at all.

It a slight pain to backspace through a long post on mobile, and I've had problems getting the text to select so I can delete it all at once.  and I've been getting an unusual number of tappos, double words, double posts, multi quotes, random emoji insertions, etc. as well.  

 

I'll try to watch out for these as they happen (and fail but it's not your fault I'm blind lol) but when I'm posting I'm usually posting fast. I could see this being a bigger issue in games, where there's no editing option.

I know all about the hassle of selecting the proper section to remove stuff on mobile.

I tend to select a section that's close to all of it, then manually backspacing the stragglers.

This happened to me a couple of times but it had a message saying it had saved my last reply and a little underlined link thing asking me to select it if I wanted to clear it.

The ads only appear at the top of some pages :)

I'll have to look for that. Lots of stuff I haven't figured out here.

 

the multiple boop backspace deleting is beyond my dexterity.

A configuration or server error just occurred.  It was terrify:ohmy:ing 

 

see, that just put itself in the middle of a word for no reason.

 

that wasn't the error ... it was a blue underlined index page or something *shiver*

I don't mean to be a party pooper but the notification system really sucks.

It shows all the posts (individual notifications for each post in a thread), so I'm looking at the same thread multiple times. That's if I don't miss it completely because it just removes the bolding if you click on the system somewhere, and then you don't know what you've seen and what you haven't. If you click on "show all" then they're suddenly all bolded again. Hope that gets sorted out.

The notifications are disheartening. That will get worse as more people come back. Blarg.

 

do enjoy the tagging ability tho. Get notifications for tags.

    •   Can you list some of those points here?     Chemotherapy.   Its success rates are abysmally low compared to treatment options in other diseases, and horrendously expensive without medical insurance.   Still, when the alternative is death, most people choose to undergo chemotherapy.   Same thing for proposed solutions to climate change. The reason you don't believe in them is because you don't believe climate change will harm you. You're like a teenager who doesn't believe drugs and alcohol will kill him, who believes he will live forever, and thus keeps on partying.
    • Today is the release day for Mystic Dragon, the second novel in Jason Denzel’s Mystic series.  This captivating story is a great addition to the series, expanding the scope of the plotlines, the characters, and the world.   Slight spoilers will follow.   Synopsis: The first book, Mystic, showed Pomella AnDone, a commoner, summoned by the High Mystic of Moth to trial for an apprenticeship.  Though Pomella shows strength and courage and cunning, she’s not selected to be the High Mystic’s apprentice.  Instead, she is chosen by Grandmaster Faywong, a man retired from the position of High Mystic of Moth, and becomes his apprentice.   Mystic Dragon picks up the story seven years after the events of Mystic.  Now, Pomella is a full Mystic, using her training, and her reputation as a commoner, to stop a slaver named Shadefox.  Shadefox has been taking the Unclaimed people of Moth and selling them on the Continent.  Her mission is cut short, however, by the celestial event known as Crow Tallin--which takes place once every sixty years.  Pomella is needed on Moth to help control the fay as Treorel, the Mystic Star, momentarily links the human world and Fayun.   However, Shevia, another Mystic, shows signs of going against the traditions of Crow Tallin.  Shevia has been given visions of the future and her intentions for the event counter greatly to what Pomella is instructed to do.  The two women must make some sort of agreement, or it will be a full-out war between them.  And Shevia’s powers are much greater than anything Pomella has ever seen.   Pros: From start to finish, this story was enthralling.  While the first novel focused on Moth culture, the world is expanded greatly in Mystic Dragon.  We see many of the other cultures of the world which solidifies it in the reader’s mind.  The countries on the Continent are very different from Moth, and they offer a contrast to Pomella’s upbringing.   Though the story takes place seven years later, those years aren’t lost.  Through flashback scenes, we get to see exactly what happened to Sim and Shevia during that time.  These scenes were among my favorite in the book because of how poignant the emotional reactions were.  Much darker than Mystic, this novel dwells on loss and pain, sadness and suffering, loneliness and abuse.  These times where the characters are at their lowest makes them shine so much brighter when we see them try their hardest to overcome what’s kept them suppressed.     As the time of Crow Tallin approached, I was constantly guessing the direction the book would take. It was completely unpredictable. There were so many ways the events could have played out, so many choices the characters could have made.  One surprise after another kept me in suspense until the very last page.   And Pomella.  I love her as a character.  Though she’s been a Mystic for nearly seven years, she’s never forgotten her commoner heritage.  Though powerful, she never lets that get in the way of her helping people.  She could live a life of luxury, but she insists on being among the commoners.  Her character has stayed true despite being so highly elevated.  She struggles through this book, she grows, and her future is still uncertain.   Cons:
      The deaths.  I won’t give away who (or how many) die, but some of them devastated me.  Not to say these deaths were for shock value.  They had a purpose.  I hope the third novel will ease the pain at these losses, though.   Conclusion: This story was engrossing.  It was difficult to put down because I wanted to see how the events unfolded.  The pace kept the actions going, pulling me along with it, even late into the night.  The themes of loss and survival resonated strongly with me.  I am eagerly awaiting the conclusion to the series, as so many questions were left unanswered at the end of Mystic Dragon.   Rating: 5 out of 5   You can purchase Mystic Dragon from Dragonmount’s DRM-free eBook store.  To find out more about Jason Denzel and the series you can visit his website, or follow him on Facebook or Twitter.
