Website update

Postby Miburo on Thu May 21, 2009 8:55 pm

There's a new shoutbox and now a profile feature on the website. the kinks are still being worked out, but if you find a bug go ahead and post it here.

If you cannot see some of the new changes, try refreshing or restarting your browser.

Thanks everyone!

-- Edit, May 28 --

New smilies for the shoutbox!

I don't know if this is bug or feature but:
- The input window changes height while entering Text, causing the entire chat to "jump" (Maybe a fixed height would be preferable)
- Beginning with an certain length of text-input the result is no post at all. (to much text = no post)

Besides besides the shoutbox ones posted by Taru, the 200 character limit in the profile description is too too short, being as conservative as I could still ends up with over 600 characters ^^; also small things like my "choose" button for the profile picture is half missing ^^;

thanks thanks ^^

We change height of the input box when writing in the shoutbox to make it more easy to view long lines of text without having to scroll up and down. It's a design used in the daydream shoutbox too.
The not being able to submit long texts is being looking into.

Can you also please include what browser version you are using when reporting a bug? it makes it a lot easier to replicate the problem and see where it goes wrong.

With the last Page update the "image preview" disappeared from the "edit profile" window. (Is it supposed to be shown after a new picture has been uploadet?)

It was giving errors for IE users, we have temporary disabled it to keep the site accesible for all users. It will be back up once we located and solved the issue.

It is not meant to hold your character background. Only a short physical description, or possibly a short description of any type.

(Also posted in the shoutbox)

I notice there is now a 1000 character limit on our submitted EA actions. When you click the (i) button in the pulldown menu, the html tags are showing, so does that mean we no longer need html to format our actions? That would help cut down the number of characters, but even so, checking my last action shows that it had 1132 characters, and I'm not sure I could cut it down much further without losing important information. :S

Yes, the event actions will no longer need html code, it was a major security risk and has now been removed.

Character limit is something that can be easly changed, feel free to test out the submit screen once the new Event page goes up tonight.

I see. While I think a character limit is a Good Thing (especially from Kern's point of view ^^;), there are times such as the current crisis when actions may require more length, or like the warrior action since they have so many people/squads doing different things with different equipment.

Oh, and I like the upgrades very much. :)

Could you change from "Edit / Create" to "Edit / Create Character", for the character profile please?
It would be more clear, especially for people who just read the comic, and anything we can do to make those faceless create characters is good for the clan. :)

Another thing: After a while of browsing in another tab it happens that the Shoutbox stops to update, and on other occasions it requires a refresh including re-enter the login data. I am now trying to construct the conditions for that to determine what reasons it may have.
