I'm back. I had some personal issues to take care of.

You can change your username once every 3 months, and your old username will still link to you and won't be recycled. PM me if you want yours done.

Trying to make some database updates without downtime, so things will be slow / shaky for a bit.

Guild can't really be fixed without some solid sit-down time which I can't really afford until I'm back in the city.

I have some pending changes that I want to apply, but they need to be tested. It's just not a good time.

For now I have put the Guild back up so that people can at least try their luck with it, particularly so they can access their material. Just be patient with it.

yeah i know

Seriously? Never even knew this could be an issue.

To be fair, the emojis could be worse. I kinda like the Discord icon.

@Grimhildr Is this cookie expiration issue a relatively recent phenomenon (<1 year) or has it been like this for longer?

@Grimhildr Re: fullscreen issue. Same here. Looks like it's a relatively new issue possibly after updating the version of a CSS library I use. :(

Okay, thanks. Sounds like it's predominantly a mobile issue. I'll have to see if I'm encoding cookie expiration in a way that only works on relatively modern browsers.

@Grimhildr Wait, it won't even let you check the checkbox to begin with? Now that's weird.

@NuttsnBolts Oh yeah, I remember. I even rolled out the feature but had to reverse it due to a root issue with how deleted posts work with pagination.

I spent most of my Guild time this weekend fixing issues that prevented me from setting up the Guild dev environment on my new laptop.

Hey everyone, I'm back.

I have some low priority pushes to make like updating the homepage. But I'm also gearing up for a platform upgrade in the Guild's underlying software stack.

I'll have to read the last 100 posts in this thread or so to remember where I was at mentally before my break. I have a dozen work-in-progress features on my computer and I don't remember which one is the closest to being done.

If I recall correctly, the email system was my main priority before I had to leave.

I'll be on Discord tonight so feel free to PM me even if I'm offline.

I'm catching up on some PMs right now. As I've said in my status, I unplugged for a few weeks to handle some personal issues.

I've been very sick for the past 4 days. So sick that I'll be heading to the doctor today.

Dunno what it is. Worms? Bad tacos? The resurgence of the Black Death?

Today marks the end of the 10th year that I've been running the Guild.

I will try to get on later. Worst case scenario, I may have to sign in tomorrow. Or, if even worse, Hank is my next of kin.
@VidyaParamia Yeah, right now you only get on-site notifications when you subscribe to a topic/RP. (A lil number next to the bell icon at the top of the site)

But I'm working on an optional email-notification system as well.

Oh, think I found the cause. Seems to only be an issue on 3 year old posts.

At some point in new-guild history, I think when I rewrote the forum the 2nd time, I changed the BBCode system.

Might offer a "Migrate" button for those posts that lift the post into the new system but require you to make it compatible with the new BBCode parser.
