• Most people probably don't realise this, but this forum has had two editors for a number of years. One is the xenForo default editor, and the other is a custom editor I made years back I called BBCEd.

    All the settings for which editor you use was lost during the upgrade. You can find the setting under Account Settings > Preferences > Editor.

  • I've had it made known to me that for about a week now people haven't been able to finish registering or receive email notifications. I can imagine how frustrating this must have been, particulary for our newest members. Unfortunately our site owner is away at the moment and he most likely won't be able to do anything about it for another week or so. Until then, anyone who wants their account manually verified can contact me via their method of preference and I'll sort it for them myself. Thanks to everyone for their patience regarding this issue. -DoubleThink

  • Emails should hopefully be fixed, please let us know if they're working properly now.

Animated Avatars.

When the forum was upgraded it seems like it was forgotten to turn these back on, or were they left off on purpose?

Animated avatars? So just as I find out I can have them I find out I can't? That's nice.

You can still have an avatar, in time. Just not an animated one.

I know I can have an avatar. In two or three more days, actually.
I just didn't even know this forum had ever allowed animated avatars. Guess not, anymore. >_>

I have reactivated the animated GIF option for avatars for those who can have an avatar, this seems to have been an oversight when the forums were updated and not a deliberate policy change.

However, I will remind people that we can remove this option if people decide to choose an avatar that is highly distracting, such as on a high speed loop.

I'm hoping the avatar I want to use



doesn't count as highly distracting.

Only if you count that the animation being a bit jumpy and sprite being stretched is bugging me, then it's distracting.

This discussion should end. It hurts me dearly, being the only person I see active without avatar priviledges. :/
