random bugs and suggestions

  • Suggestion: Make the "You have X PMs" message a little more visible.

    I think it is in a zone of the screen (the logout) which users tend to forget about. And as the display of the message is pretty much the same as the logout link, we don't tend to notice it very much.

    Maybe add a little candy like shadow css, or some background filling to catch the eye.

    I've sent a PM to Zack0Wack0 two days ago, he's been twice on the forum since (checking the last activity) but the PM I sent him hasn't been read yet.

    This leads me to believe he hasn't noticed the "You got mail" link yet. (I haven't had noticed it right away either the first time I received a PM)

  • I don't see any "You have X PMs"? Does it appear only when I receive one?

    edit>

    I just noticed this little crop.

  • I don't see any "You have X PMs"? Does it appear only when I receive one?

    Yes.

  • Perhaps a pop-up window or an email if you have a new message? I liked that about the old forum (though I definitely did not like how the indicator on a page that you had a pm would disappear if you didn't notice it the first time it was displayed).

  • Thanks guys, good suggestions. I will look to implement them soon I know they've been building up a bit :) Good news is I'm on a 3 day week at work now so I can spend a lot more time working on the site and other Scirra related things, there's a lot going on behind the scenes at the moment!

  • The bigger link catches more the eye. I'd still have filled its background with some light green to really make it stand out though ;) But I'm picky :P

    Dear Tom,

    I would like to suggest a reorganisation concerning Construct 2's forum section.

    Construct 2 general has been taken over by a lot of "help & support" type of topics. Maybe it is time for those topics to have their own sub-forum, alongside "bugs".

    Moving those topics might help clear the general discussion section.

    Following the same pattern as CC's section.

    In the long term, extensions should also have their own sub-forum. It might not be a necessity as of now, only two topics are concerned. But in the mid to long term it might come in handy hopefully.

    Also I think this "post your tests" topic should be stickied. This might lead the newcomers and ppl actually messing with C2 to bring some "positive" flow other than "help & support".

    orking on the site and other Scirra related things, there's a lot going on behind the scenes at the moment!

    Okay, now you have my attention and curiosity.

    You've either said too much or not enough. Anyway, what's going on behind the scene ? :)

    Keep up the good work ;)

    EDIT: Also when reporting a post, on validation of my reason message I get this error:

    Error
    The email failed to send. Please contact the Forum Administrator with the error message below.
    
    Server Error Message:-
    
    The server rejected one or more recipient addresses. The server response was: 550 No such user here
    
    

    And I don't think the post is being reported.

    I confirm this. Just wanted to report a spam post. Got the same message.

    I reported this issue 12 days ago HERE. I think Tom probably has other, more important (behind the scenes) issues at the moment (any hints!) :)

  • For how long I can stay signed in. Sometimes after browsing the forum I want to replay a post and after writing it and clicking Post Replay, it's deleted and I have to login again.

  • Sorry guys been super busy at the moment, but I haven't forgotten about all these things they are going to be fixed at some stage don't worry.

  • Error Error

  • How about members with post count less than x amount cant show links of any kind, including non linked url's?

    Then again I have no idea how hard a parser would be for that, and apparently non bot spammers, can figure out that all they have to do is make fake posts like, "Thanks again!", or "You rule dood!".

  • There's a problem with member (or function) called "Guests". Any topic this member posts becomes internal error. Perhaps this username is used as a reserve word for some reason.

  • not anything big but noticed this--

    Congrats dravenX!

  • I just spotted that, it's bizzare and am looking at why it's happening right now!
