No subject or message typed or sent yet. Just adding recipients one at a time gives the message after the first recipient. Can it be fixed or is it set like this because of prophpbb?


Pretty sure this is just because of propphpbb. One day we will move to our own host and we will be able to have more options and things like this should be resolved then :)

The ability to send Private Messages or Emails to multiple recipients is NOT active on Prophpbb

This is a conscience decision to limit spam... Bulk Pm's are often used by spammers who register then flood members with spam

Unfortunately, it is out of our hands.

is it possible to add an option to have your twitter/tumblr handle show up in the info under your avatar when you post? (like the pronouns thing why am i so bad at explaining myself jfc)

i know you can add it to your profile but having it show up there would save me from having to remind people who the fuck i am on twitter all the time since my twitter handle has nothing to do with my username here

this is so lazy and first world problem lol sorry feel free to tell me to fuck off

We've thought about doing this, but ultimately decided not to. You're welcome to add unobtrusive links to your twitter and tumblr {and so on} to your signature.

Totally nit-picky, but in the Other Youtubers area, people keep making topics without capitalising both names (Mattew lush etc) and it looks really stupid. Can somebody grammar it up over there pls (or not, your call).
Thanks and have a great day! Oil me

Right click the picture or tap and hold on your phone or tablet to get the link. It ends in .jpg, .png, or .gif usually. Put it in the img tags.

Code: Select all

Request-Can the posts of banned users or at least instant banned troll users be hidden? An example is when a user is on the foe list and their post appears like this.

Troll posts interrupt the flow of a thread and if they are enough to ban the user then the post might be worth deleting or at least hiding.

I also agree with this. I was just on the 'phandom conspiracy theory' thread and the homophobic troll posts there have the potential to upset people who are reading through, as they upset me (what a sad world we live in where being gay is a 'joke' to some people). Is it possible to simply hide or edit such posts to avoid upsetting future readers?
I realize this can also be applied to my own post from the other day. I feel like silly posts like that do not add anything to the discussion and ought to be removed if they are at risk of upsetting future readers.

Request.

Don't know if it is allowed to make a request for a new rule. In just the last couple weeks there were this many trolling threads.
topic479.html
topic456.html
topic452.html
Maybe the thread should be locked immediately after a moderator note and the user should be banned. It's obvious the people do not want to be part of the forum or discussion but only came to get attention and trouble so do they deserve a 2nd chance to post more in the trolling thread or any thread?

I agree, I don't understand why this person was encouraged to post more when they clearly just wanted to bitch and moan at us to try to make us feel bad (and unfortunately I think it may have worked on one or more people) Usually we just ban trolls so this was really interesting to me and kinda stuck out? Basically I agree with spider

Speaking about this particular case, I chose to mod them based on them coming close to breaking rule 1 {about being respectful to other users}, rather than rule 10 {trolling}, because I felt that their post was not a detriment to the board to a level that would require stronger action.

I have to agree with Jesp on this. I think that the other cases had been sorted pretty quickly, those users were subsequently banned and the threads locked. but each case is looked at and discussed in detail.

As a team we are always monitoring and discussing potential situations which could flare up, we do a lot of work behind the scenes to ensure that people feel safe and enjoy posting here and are constantly monitoring the forum for issues. I hope that will reassure you.

If anyone has time to make a couple of festive holiday emojis, that would be fun. May be a string of lights, x-mas tree, snowflake? Something to represent gaymas/gamingmas?

I was wondering if there was any way to create a (mobile) icon for the forum?

I have the forum saved as a webpage on my phone. Currently, because it doesn't have an icon, it changes regularly between a screenshot of the forum itself or a blank icon:

Image

If a website has an icon, it can look v nice and aesthetic:

Image

Happy to contribute a design or dig into what the code for that has to look like, but my phone-organizing heart was curious if it was a possibility. :-D

Hmm, possibly. I think it might use a website's favicon as the shortcut icon so I'll have a look at this today. Good question!
