I'm fine with square or round avatars really. Doesn't bother me.
We just have the default ones right now, we can add as many as we'd like but that would come later.Lol I can see the ratings getting disabled eventually. Remember the return of reputation years ago? That didn't last long because of how it got abused. Although I've noticed only six reactions show up for me compared to this:
That by design, or what? Had no plans on using them, personally, I'm just curious if certain ratings are locked out.
Nah that would cause a lot of problems kind of like when reputation came back a few years ago and people abused the hell out of it. If you don't agree with someone's post just reply to them and explain why you don't agree with them instead of thumbing them down. That's better for discussions any ways.There are too few options imo for reaction emojis. In addition to the options already provided, could we also get "thumbs down" (for posts we dislike) and an eyeroll emoji (for posts we find to be silly or ridiculous)?
Oh wow, that's actually an issue. Not like it already wasn't previously, hyperlinks were just a slightly different shade of grey previously, but that's terrible. Good find.One thing that hasn't been brought up, is that links now like plain text in Default Style. HERE is a link.
This is important to me because I recently (before the upgrade) made a big theory post with lots of links (https://forums.serebii.net/posts/19080670/ ) that I even tweeted about, and outsiders are unlikely to notice the problem or even think of switching style to be able to see links.
You could just view it from the "Members" tab on the top header. I don't think many users besides mods are using the current members online to look for spam bots...It would be great to keep members online in order to spot spam bots. Is there any way to just collapse it some how for those who don't want it around?
Yea that helps. But sometimes they slip through, meaning older spam bots. So members online comes in handy there.You could just view it from the "Members" tab on the top header. I don't think many users besides mods are using the current members online to look for spam bots...
You mean the one with the bulging eyes? That reaction is extremely condescending and most people use it to express contempt or annoyance when someone says something they don't agree with. It's basically a pseudo angry face reaction and that kind of negativity shouldn't be welcomed.Bulbagarden uses a whaat Lapras reaction that's hilarious to me but that's just my opinion.
That's the wrong interpretation of that reaction if I ever heard one in my opinion. Like this would convey more of what you are describing. Plus bulbagarden has very little reactions and weird ones at that so it's not too surprising some would have their meanings morph. On top of that without responding/replying how does one assume the meaning behind the reaction? If I said "Pikachu is yellow" and someone reacted with all that's going to do is confuse me, if the person responds with "Obviously, are you colorblind?" then I could associate that reaction with "People think I'm disabled/dumb" but by itself?You mean the one with the bulging eyes?

I think it was a meme that transformed into an emoji. Its like the Pikachu face meme but more exaggerated.Why a Lapras, though.
Hi! I've tried it for a week now. It's still impractical if the only place you can 'go backwards in a thread' is down at the bottom of a page (on mobile).Click the date, not the thread title. It brings you right to the end. Alternatively, click the "Jump to new" button right at the top to go to new posts since you last viewed the thread. Regardless, these specific issues have nothing to do with the forum upgrade. We haven't lost any functionality as far as this kind of thing goes, and it's an issue with forum software in general.
As far as Googling goes, there's really not much we could do there besides start deleting a ton of stuff. We have a lot of content, a downside is it becomes more difficult to scroll to certain things. If there are threads you frequent, then you should make use of the bookmarking features of the forum, or just bookmark it in your browser itself.
No, jump to new jumps to the first unread post in the thread, not to the end."Jump to new" also doesn't function as it should. I refresh the page (to make sure I'm up-to-date) and click Jump to New. It jumps to the bottom of the page and there it says: 1114 of 1116. Shouldn't it have brought me all the way up to page 1116?
