Placebo

New Forums: Feedback thread - Bugs/Suggestions here please.

Recommended Posts

Been meaning to say "Thanks for the shiny new forums, guys!" Clean, functional, not at all bad to look at. I just posted on a youtube vid, and of course people always bicker unless you give solid proof of what you say (and rightly so). Was nice to place a quote and give lookup info right down to the post number. Thread/page/post#... Nothing left wanting here, lol. Hope you all have a good degree of satisfaction from this!

by the way, how can we Rate a thread?

I noticed there are several threads with rated stars, how can i do it? I see no option available to do it.

I think it's no longer possible.

There used to be the option in the top right header of the thread.

ok, i thought i read somewhere saying it was deactivated due to some reasons.

I just wanted to know if it intends to exit in the future or if the existing threads could be cleared.

Maybe your connection, YT is pretty quick for me and has HD.....

We may look into expanding the type of embedded video supported but it's not a priority by any means.

Yes yes ...

Germany, DSL 16M, German Telekom. What do you have?

HD is not always available for low or new hit videos.

Also YT HD is still way crappy that standard Vimeo quality.

Vimeo is made for gaming videos.

Sweden, cable 50Mbit down/10Mbit up, Comhem, what do I win?

Whether Vimeo is "made for gaming videos" or not, for now you have Youtube, for the future you may have others, it's your right to love Vimeo and you're welcome to post direct links to your videos.........

Indeed. They actually removed ALL of my ArmA videos on there without giving me any way to access them. The irony is I uploaded them before that rule was put into place. The fact I don't use Vimeo anymore speaks for itself.

Placebo,

I am fairly happy that BIS choose the Vbulletin system. (Caveat: I am biased as I run my own :)) In fact I was going to email you a few months back and suggest it because of its ease of importing other boards data.

Did that search thing and saw that it was already said. So third vote on the change the forum mod yellow asterisk thing. Its messing with my internet feng shui.

The forum search doesn't seem to work for words with three letters.

For three letter search I only get:

Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.

For two letter search I get:

Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.

The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search.

Three letter search could be useful. For example lots of mod names are three letters. :)

Agreed. WW1, WW2 etc are 3 letters long...

Yes that's covered earlier in the thread, 3 letter searching is implemented but requires some downtime to activate, which we're holding off until we have more things that need maintenance.

Some members names stretch over and uglies the board, IMO.

This may have already been mentioned, ignore me if so.

The board titles in ARMA: ARMED ASSAULT / COMBAT OPERATIONS and OPERATION FLASHPOINT, are still displaying "!Forum description". Additionally there seems to be something weird going on with the MODEL EDITING (OXYGEN) forum section, as it's not collapsible like the rest.

Otherwise looking good, kudos to all concerned.

Is it just me (tested it on two seperate browsers) or has the formatting on this thread gone haywire?

Just thought I'd post it in case it's a sign of some wider-affecting bug or another.

Possibly the Asian chars in Manzilla's post?
