  • I believe you use those tags, not in the html but in the plain text part of the post.

    So, in your actual post (not the html) add an or [PageBreak] and it should work.

  • So... I've randomly lost about 500 points overnight for some reason.  Was there some kind of point reset or something?  I know I had some points that I couldn't account for from my post, blog, and comment count alone, but I had assumed that maybe I gained them through some secret, undisclosed way  since the points had been reset once before already.  I'm not inclined to think a point reset occurred though since Reiner for instance still has 6031 points with 10 blog posts, 50 forum posts, and 105 comments.

    Also, I'm really not one to nitpick, but with 407 forum posts, 1 blog post, and 69 comments all worth 5 points each I should have at least 2385 points, but I somehow have less than that at 2372 points (prior to this post, which should add another 5 points).  I'm not the only one who's point count is less than it should be.  Eddie Dean currently has 1145 points but his 208 forum posts, 1 blog post, and 27 comments should add up to 1180.

    So... what happened?  Personally I don't worry too much about the point system, but it does seem kinda buggy for some people's points to suddenly drop below what it should be based on their stats while other people's points appear to remain untouched and in some cases (like Reiner's) appear way higher than their stats suggest they should be.

  • Indeed, there was one final test needed for our system, which went well BTW, which caused a recalculation.  There should be no lost ranks and no more recalculations...  Ever.  Points are accurate, and some secret rewards were rethought and changed.  No more!  You have my word on that.

    You may notice some old bugs clearing up and we will have even more fixes out there in November.

  • Alright, good to know everything went well.  What happened to trying to give us all a heads up before doing something that would change things?  

    By the way, thanks for finally making it possible to navigate between a group forum's pages.  That should certainly prove to be useful.

  • :-( Why can't I update my status??

    I won't take credit for the fix, but on behalf of the guys who did, you are welcome.

    And as to notifying you of the changes, to be perfectly honest, I thought it would ADD points to most users since I actually put more in than I took away, but nonetheless, head's up should have been given.

    Did you recently change any of your settings?  If you disable people from seeing/commenting on your status in your settings, you would be unable to update it.  If that's not the case, let me know, and I'll look into it for you.

    Have you found a bug or the sites acting strange? Let us know! Remember, we're still in a public beta so there's bound to be some bumps in the road.

     

    Every time I try and edit and save my profile I get an error.

  • yeah every time i try to type a comment and post it it says that there is an error

  • urghh getting this when I post in a forum : Sorry for the inconvenience, but there's been an error. The error? You're looking for something that doesn't exist. We can't explain it, but whatever it was has disappeared and may never be seen again. Some say it may have never existed at all.... We know, creepy.

    When will the developers of games let us actually gamers come up with a creative game idea? The world may never know....

    I've found that usually means the thread you're trying to post in has been locked by a moderator.  You can prove this to yourself by trying to click on "advanced reply" in the threads where you're getting that message.  You should see an "Access Denied" message.

  • I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, but for some reason whenever I try to edit my most recent blog entry, my computer starts lagging really hard.  Like, Firefox just starts seizing and eventually won't work at all.  Even other tabs stop working.  Weirdly enough, if I open up another window of Firefox, that window operates as normal, until I go to GI and start trying to edit a blog post, then things get weird again.

  • The article on att saying that gaming isn't a part of the internet won't open.

  • OK, this is weird. All of a sudden, profile pages are only half there. I can see bios, favorites, interests, etc. But the comments are gone, the friend bar on the side is gone, and several other things are missing. Is there a reset going on at the moment?

    I'm not seeing what you're seeing.  What browser are you in?
