Tips: 0.50 INK Postby Ylanne on Sat May 11, 2019 7:42 pm

Hey, I have a few current suggestions and requests:

* Create a way to "mark notifications as read." I have over 18K notifications and nothing makes that number decrease.

* Create an "x" to exit the pop-up information box in a place when inside a roleplay reading or replying to posts in a particular location. It's visually distracting and cluttering.

* Enable editing of a user's own posts past a brief time period.

* I also want to note that character pages have always been broken when a character's name includes certain non-standard diacritic markings. For example, two of mine include the following - if you click either link, you'll get an error: (1) Fātiḥ Sayılgan (2) Thục-Đoàn Phùng. It would be great if these errors could be resolved while enabling non-standard diacritics (for proper spelling! in this case of a Turkish and a Vietnamese name.)

Thanks!

New question - the chat tabs (a la Facebook chat) from a few years ago have popped up again at the bottom taskbar on the site, and they each contain messages marked as unread/new from everyone who has ever messaged me (but only a few of my responses as interlocutor). What is this? Is it mean to be a bug or a feature?

It's the history of your chat whispers, in instant-messenger form! We'll be exposing more tools for all historical logs soon.

Tips: 1.50 INK Postby ~Lonesome Butterfly~ on Sat Jul 27, 2019 9:16 pm

A lot of factors have gone into this site dying in the past few years, but one of the things that I think hurt was being able to easily track the new RPs at the top of every page.

I know you changed the layout of the site to give it a facelift and add new feature to try and give the site new life, but in process it became more convoluted and weird to navigate and it took away simple features - like seeing new RPs at the top of your screen - that really helped foster the community/group-RP aspect of the site.

Tips: 1.00 INK Postby Maci-Care on Sun Jul 05, 2020 5:02 pm

Ello all!
So had a small idea came to my mind recently that I wanted to suggest/request, so here I am!

So I know sometimes when stuff is changed on the site, it takes a bit to realize or you notice a button moved somewhere or something. I was wondering if maybe we could have a forum that show what all was changed? Like the small notes. It would be helpful for when stuff happens, people could subscribe to it so they KNOW when stuff changes and could keep it underneath the Announcement section of the Forums. Would (if possible) be good idea to make it where only the Mods/Staff can post there so it doesn't get spammed by other people.

Anyways, just an idea!

Yes! We try to keep the changelog up to date, but there haven't been any significant changes in the past couple years. Most recently, I added character portraits to the "Scenes" page and announced it in RPG Chat — though I wonder if it wouldn't be helpful to have someone go through and take screenshots for a "Guide to RPG" of sorts?

Personally, I think it would be helpful to announce changes somewhere other than chat. Not everyone is on the chat all the time (the chat is definitely nice, and useful, but I don't have time to be on there 24/7, so I can't stay up to date with what's going on in there if people are chatting a lot. I'm probably not the only one.)

I think a guide to rpg would be great!

Tips: 1.00 INK Postby ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ on Thu Jul 09, 2020 8:52 pm

A few things:

-I suggest adding the option to freely select where your character will be posting from (without going through chat) as well rather than having to move your character through the chat functionality OR to hide posts that show the spawning of an area/character. It's troublesome having to move your character in chat to different locations and it clogs up the page with needless posts that you, the GM, can't delete. Additionally, the /join command is broken so you also have to make sure all your locations are built to connect with each other lest you screw yourself over by creating your character in the wrong place. I understand that it's convenient for mapping out areas that are meant to be separated (especially for sandboxes) but it's very clunky for smaller roleplays that aren't meant to be as open world.

-Allowing us to edit posts older than two weeks. I can understand not allowing this for threads but I don't see the purpose behind that for roleplay posts.

-A character journal tab in roleplays. I noticed that many independent universes have threads for relationships and I think that having a separate tab for them rather than an OOC thread would be a good way to declutter the OOC forum, especially if you can edit journals as well!
