random bugs and suggestions

  • just an idea: make a tutorial about how to write a good tutorial, with good practices and etc, and lock it at the top if possible.

  • Animmaniac, excellent idea, I'll write on tonight hopefully!

  • What would happen to the older CC tutorials?

    Earlier they were listed on the wiki, but now since the wiki link is missing and it's unlikely that new users will hunt through the forums for tutorials.

  • Would there be any way to filter out the default Gravatar avatar?  So we don't see this on the forum:

    <img src="http://i53.tinypic.com/2im71g7.jpg" border="0" />

    <img src="http://i53.tinypic.com/2im71g7.jpg" border="0" />

    <img src="http://i53.tinypic.com/2im71g7.jpg" border="0" />

    <img src="http://i53.tinypic.com/2im71g7.jpg" border="0" />

    Actually they have a few options:

        * 404: do not load any image if none is associated with the email hash, instead return an HTTP 404 (File Not Found) response

        * mm: (mystery-man) a simple, cartoon-style silhouetted outline of a person (does not vary by email hash)

        * identicon: a geometric pattern based on an email hash

        * monsterid: a generated 'monster' with different colors, faces, etc

        * wavatar: generated faces with differing features and backgrounds

        * retro: awesome generated, 8-bit arcade-style pixelated faces

    I vote retro. However, I'm not sure, but for some of those the image might have to be generated here at Scirra using GD lib. Which means the image would also be hosted here at the site, and use up some bandwidth.

  • Try Construct 3

  • identicon and retro sound cute.

    Is there a place to see what it look's like, or i have to remove my avatar image? :/

  • There's some examples down the page here.

    I gotta say the monsterid, and wavatar images aren't very impressive.

    But I think its possible to change the api to use your own parts.

  • Few things don't work for me (using Chrome):

    • preview post open a pop up window saying there is nothing to preview!
    • new posts show me posts from my last visit... but consider my arrival as my last visit, so there is no new posts...
    • Making text in bold does not work when i select the text to bold it, it either put the {b} things at the end of the text, or pop up a window to ask me to retype the text i want to bold, to put it at the end anyway > preview post
    • quotes of previous posts are slightly bigger than the forum column and add a slider bar for nothing
    • i cannot search my previous posts (which makes it hard to follow a conversation)

    Little things, but annoying ones...

  • A few don't likes

    • graphic design, are going to change it later? It's simple (that's alright), but I think too much. Colours together with the design gives me feeling it's not serious page. If I were first time visitor, I wouldn't click another page and left immediately.
    • I miss "mark read" and unread coloured posts
    • couple more little things, like fonts size, width, forum navigation only at the top, but all that isn't important.

    likes

    Navigation (not design) <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" /> , tutorials, tags, etc.

  • there seems to be problems with User Control Panel-

    -there is no direct link to the UCP, you have to access it through the FAQ.

    -if you try to change your profile info there and click on 'Update Profile', it shows a '500- Internal Server Error' although the info may get updated(I'm not sure of that).

    -I updated my sig, but it only shows the sig in the post that I posted after setting my sig(or is that the correct way?)

  • On the contact page, it says:

    By Email

    Send us an email

    By Telephone

    Send us an email

    ...without an email link.

    It would be nice if the stuff written in the post would be remembered if you accidentally navigate away from the page and click back - currently, the post is lost.

    Also, google appears to be caching pages that aren't supposed to be looked at yet, like the store, in case you're wondering about the extremely angry email you've apparently been sent about it. :D

  • Set up a new network today, and now login, and pass is all screwy again.

  • Getting the following a lot:

    The form has not been submitted because there are problem(s) with the form.

    Please correct the problem(s) and re-submit the form.

    _______________________________________________________________

    The following field(s) need to be corrected: -

    WARNING

    **UPDATE**

    I use Firefox 5 with NoScript and block all scripting unless I specifically allow it.

    I allowed scirra.com, but this message occurs if you don't also allow scirra.net.

    Mystery solved :)

  • Tom,

    I posted a comment on release 47. The comment ends abruptly whereas I had more text entered. Also strange thing is I can't seem to be able to edit it now (I just have the option to quote it or report it, as it was someone else's post).

    When I posted it, I was supposedly second post (I was on the page for a long time, and cow_trix's post didn't appeared when I posted). At the moment of posting I had the edit option and tried to edit this comment.

    I added stuff to complete it but when I validated, a jquery red alert warned me that I had added nothing to the content (which was untrue).

    Also, following the url scirra.com/construct2/releases/new (the "last release" button in Construct tab of the site) leads me to r46, not r47.

  • Hi Kyatric,

    Thanks for the reports! For me:

    scirra.com/construct2/releases/new

    Does redirect to r47, I'll look into it though, it might be cached? Not too sure.

    In regards to the comment being cut off, sorry about that! It has a text limit. It was 500, I've set it to 1000 now. I will at some point add a counter so you know how many are left, that must be a pain to have it typed out and lose it, sorry :(

    Tom

    It is not the end of the world ^^

    It is just that to me that cut-comment seems weird with the rest of the comments.
