    This is the New Sarcasm Color for the new Forums!

    WTH... that is a lot of work for that color

    Ok how about a solid color then.

    Now we just need Trendy to Designate that Color as "Sarcasm" within the Websites CSS....

    Yeah, can someone explain to me why I need a special PIN from ARC EVERY SINGLE time I try to log into this new Forum? Because if that's going to be a constant requirement now, then I think I'll just start using the Reddit group for STO.

    There are many possible causes to that. I have it everytime I log into arc or the Gateway. My guess is because I'm on a laptop.

    FOR ANSWERS TO THIS QUESTION click this sentence ;)

    Yeah but If I am getting a ton of "False Positives" when Attempting to use something with a Security System... the suggested solution should NOT be to Removed/Disable the Security System. It should be to improve the security system.

  • I guess I'll be sticking to regular text for the most part.

    Nope BBCode for Colors

    Or you both could use this?

    See I can type in cool color's too.

    so.. of its a general forum, do I still get slapped on my hands from Zeb or Lew?
    Not yet. They aren't mods yet. Just regular members. But soon, rest assured.

    You have a new icon!

    I should redo stuff for the new forums.. but now I have to host a image on bucket or something..

    I've used gateway, forums, etc on my iPhone's, old cell phones, laptops, multi-pal pc's & yet to have such an issue myself. But there is a way to turn off the arc defender/security system if your incapable of making it work properly on your end; or to be sure your own systems settings/firewall is not causing any errors on your end....
    The End

    A. The forum is not deleted. It's merely down for data migration purposes.
    B. That attitude isn't cool.

    Posts are only removed if they violate forums' Code of Conduct. That's one thing that should hopefully be standardized across all platforms with the new setup. If your posts were removed before, they'll probably be removed on the new system, after the various subforums are set and opened.

    There's a simple way to prevent your stuff from being removed: Don't post things against the Code of Conduct of the forums. Easy.

    Yeah that would work if the Code of Conduct was enforced in a consistent manner, but it isn't.
    So therein lies the problem a "Subjective" Code of Conduct combined with Moderators with little to no formal training enforcing their own personal interpretation of the forum Code of Conduct.

    On a side note, I would be careful with that colorizer... as nice as it is, it's going to make some people unable to respond if your message is long enough, simply because you're going to hit the character limit. Also, it makes it impossible to read the quoted post to see the parts you want to reply to, thus forcing you to have to scroll up and down to actually type a coherent response. ;)

    As was said, though, mods from various forums will be mods in their respective sub-forums after the migration is complete. I'm excited to get back to work after this whole thing is done. I want to see what they give us for mod tools. :)

    revjimjones, please see my comment above if needed. Thank you.

    Personally I've had a few hard times with mods on the other forums. Yes they sometimes misunderstand things but they like you & I are human's trying to do us all a free service. Abet they are god's in a way who at times need to evaluate things sometimes better; yet even so I still have become friends with at least 3 or more of them, the mod's who once wanted to ban me for a simple misunderstanding, can be reasonable. I know I am far from perfect, I'm a girl not a troll just a very loud girly girl who can, will & does make mistakes just as you or they can.

    Now could we all just be reasonable or even civil & just chill while we wait for the old forums to be migrated to the new forums? Thank you

    Really hope they fix the quotes within quotes issue. It's annoying.

    Apparently they've been made aware of the quote-nesting issue. No estimate on when it'll be looked at or fixed, though.

    That's just funny, even by simply copying the code from the supplied website, I can't manage to make a colored signature.

    I must be unbelievably stupid. And a picture will have to make do.

    Hey, at least your signature shows up. I've done everything right, and still can't manage to get mine to show up. :expressionless:

    Yes. Even URL's you click that say "Latest" in them, generally do not actually take you to the latest post. I'm wondering if it's very picky about what browsers it wants to work with, or if it's just completely bugged.

    EDIT: It seems to work sometimes, but not always.

    Maybe it doesn't have all those fancy-schmancy features because, y'know, plain -wait for it- Vanilla.

    I'm not having the issue with the next page button that you all are having, and about the latest thing... that has been taking me to the latest post in a thread that I haven't read, even if it's not the last post.
