The Obligatory Forum Upgrade Thread

Recommended Posts

DarkXero    2,885

I got the O2 badge but can't remember posting in the subforum. So, uh, there's that to fix.

The color palette is the same ol' orange black white, but now there are clear distinctions between different content. It's welcomed.

I don't like that the reply box text is light grey (unlike posts), because I have to concentrate to read what I'm currently writing.

Overall, the update gets a thumbs up from me.

Most important of all: there's a Lua syntax option in the code writing box.

And looks like the "Paste" function is broken? Welcome the white void that shall not be deleted.

It does feel kind of weird though in a sense. Since I participated in the Alpha, but I guess that isn't much of a contribution if you stay quiet?

I know I know, that's my collector's instinct speaking. v_v

 I thought you got the oni badge from registering on these forums before oni was in early access.

Thou, judging for what I've seen... it might be getting awarded to people that got the alpha appreciation gift.

That doesn't seem to be the case. Otherwise I'd certainly have it. Along with just about everyone else on the forums.

Possible, I haven't redeemed mine yet.
EDIT: Went ahead and redeemed it for the sake of testing. Unless it's not instantaneous then this is not the case. Shame.

I don't have any way to see what you own in steam, for now. Right now, they were just awarded to people who posted in the forums during that period of time before early access. I will grant a new one after early access ends.

What I found weird is some users who had the DS Beta badge don't have it anymore, like @Lumina.

Hmm, i got a DS badge recently (and don't have it anymore) but wasn't knowning it was for the beta. I never played DS beta as far as i remember, i think the game was already released when i start playing. I played RoG beta, this i remember, and was active on the forum during the beta, but maybe the badge is only for the DS beta itself.

So it would probably be normal for me to not have the badge anymore if it's for DS beta only ?

Just guessing. Don't know how it supposed to work exactly :)

But can we keep the Alpha one, pretty please?

I fear badges may become the next "Weirdobob's signature".

The Chucklefish forums have a nice solution for that. They only display 2 - 3 badges in the user's posts, and then one "See all badges" badge, that'd lead you to that user's badge room, showing all the remaining badges they have.

Badge.

And you can't ignore/block badges! D:
EDIT:
Oh look, I'm one of these O2 guys aswell D: I don't even own the game. It's probably because I made a joke or two in that forum section, not necessarily contributing to discussion ;_;

Also, about forums not being able to detect our Steam games. Simple and probably the only one solution that everyone can think of is adding "sign in trough Steam" and account syncing option. That's how some titles/ranks are given on Terraria forums, automatically. No idea if they are IP.Board like our forums (I think?). Dunno if this can be implemented here aswell. Either way, just throwing my idea.

That's what the escapist does as well.

I'd be perfectly fine with a fear react.

There shouldn't be too much reactions. But I'm all up for loads of emotes.
I think that if some artist or group of artists make some klei-style like emotes and show them to admins they will gladly implement them.

So... since we're able to give ourselves our own titles and stuff now, does that mean @JoeW won't give us any more title fairy titles? :<

It would make sense if there were more imo since you can see what title Joe bestows upon you by hovering over the badge if you have one.

He still will, it's just that now people that want one won't need to hope he will one day maybe give them one.

I mean, it still shows the original title on your profile. But it's likely that people who give themselves a title won't get one from JoeW.

Donke gave himself one and got one the next/same day.
