This thread is for feature requests and to report problems. There is no guarantee you will get any other features before the new board software can be rolled out.

If you have a problem, IM and PM VV and I about it as well.

Is there a way to make the blue print look better in the yellow and black background?

I have really no idea...

I am going to say no...

This is a tough one to get a hold of... and that is trying to deal with the whole, what colors work with other colors. Blue just doesn't work on Black, it's just too dark. But a lighter/brighter blue doesn't look good on lighter backgrounds.

(1d6*10)+15 = 55 (4) * (1d6*10)+15 = 25 (1) / (1d6*10)+15 = 65 (5) dfjdlfjdljf lfjldjfldjfldj jdfljdfljd (1d6*10)+15 = 45 (3)

Hey can we up the character count in the signatures? If not oh well, figured I'd ask.

We can probably do that.

Make sure your signatures are limited though. It should reflect what is most important about the character. What is the character count that you think is appropriate?

It seems to be about half the count that is allowed on EU. I like EU's sig sizes.

It has been set to equal that of EU's: 5,000 characters

1) Is it possible to Give GM's the ability to edit other peoples signatures? A lot of players do not keep their up to date and i have to deal with the extra effort of a tracking spreadsheet. it would be good to be able to help people out by populating theirs for them (and make sure they are in OOC tags and help out my players who have trouble with staying on top of their signatures.


2) Is it possible to remove the limit to 5 hyper links in signatures? I was hyper linking where I spent and gained bennies until I exceeded the limits. But if i had them back that would be awesome.

Post subject:  Re: Tech Support and Feature Requests

The only way to do that is to be an administrator Rob.

Author:  RFT [ Mon May 21, 2018 7:59 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Tech Support and Feature Requests

I know currently. However as someone who works with DBs and as a former DB administrator I know there are a lot of permissions that can be assigned by creating roles with permissions.

Sometimes all it takes is investigating. Other times it just is not possible. I am hoping this is more the former and less that later.

No, I mean the interface to do so is only available from the admin control panel to my knowledge. It can't be done in the main interface.

Pity, I would've liked that, too (directly linking all my PCs in my sig was very useful, til I hit 5 and was still wanting to do the direct-edit link for my GM Bennies.)

Oh I don't know about the hyperlink limit. that's definitely a Tiree question.

I'll take a look at the signature limits

Edit: You should be able to add more to your signature now.

Thank you.

Now that we have standardized the expectation for signatures to be in OOC tag, I do not think it will hurt to have larger ones or multiple links.

I have been having an issue where emails are not being sent to me when people post.

Mike has also reported signing up for a new account and no email comes to him for activation.

Johnathan also has had email issues with emails not being consistent sometimes he gets them and other times not.

Post subject:  Re: Tech Support and Feature Requests

I have to admit, I am surprised that the e-mail functionality is actually working.

Right now SavageRifts is sitting on a VPS, with no mail server. The database is sitting on a hosted domain. And the e-mail is going through the hosted domain's mail server. Wonkiness was expected.

Now I am working on migrating SavageRifts back to the hosted domain, but it's taking me a lot longer than I anticipated (mainly because I don't have any time to work on it). But once it's migrated back (with newer board software), you should see some massive improvements.

Strangely last night I got about 20 emails for all the threads. So something must have auto-magically happened in the background.

Post subject:  Re: Tech Support and Feature Requests

RFT - that is good to know. There can be hiccups in the system, as EMail is not real time. EMail messages could be held on a variety of mail servers throughout the world, waiting for a log jam to clear and let them through. This did happen last night, so it may have been the cause:

Quote:
Brief disconnection event
May 30 2018 12:20:41 AM PT
A short while ago, we experienced a temporary (approximately 1-minute-long) interruption in Seattle related to our troubleshooting of a serious routing problem caused by an upstream issue (INAP). This routing problem caused many scheduled payments to fail this morning.

We have worked around the problem and do not expect further interruptions.

Now, I understand this caused a payment issue on their end. But Mail servers tend to get ignored if they are not the primary mail server, just a hop along the way. Plus this was a routing issue, and a server that normally goes through that route could have been causing a log jam because it couldn't get through it's normal path. I hope this was the fix, but for the most part because we are on a hosted environment, and have limited support - I can't really lean on my provider.

So, here is the deal. If this becomes an issue again I want the following:

What is your EMail Provider when it works?
What is your EMail Provider when it fails?
Is your EMail Provider one of those free hosting ones (Google, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc...)
Is it intermittent?
Are the e-mails in your Spam, Junk, or Clutter folders?
Can you provide the headers of the EMail (if you don't know what it is... don't bother) - if so, send a PM with the information.

@Tyree,
The problem resolved itself. I assumed you did something to fix it. My gmail is 'ndreare at'



I would love it if we used a WYSIWYG editor. They are pretty common, but I do not know if it is compatible with the current vendor.

They also typically include simple table makers.

...Strikethrough text formatting? I have had several opportunities to use it to good effect. Is that a difficult/impossible addition?

+1 to strikethrough. [s ][/ s] is (relatively) standard BB code, I thought, so maybe just needs to be enabled?

Strikethrough enabled

Code:
[s]{TEXT}[/s]


Or, use the "s" button right next to "OOC"
