Re: Private Line to Multiple Recipients
The remedy for that is to contact the game's GM and ask to be removed from the game.  If they do not respond within a reasonable amount of time (a week or so), contact the moderators with the information via rmail, and they will remove you.

Re: Private Line to Multiple Recipients
To be fair some of the methods of people asking to leave the games havn't been exactly polite. I have considered leaving them in a game just to annoy them for their rudeness (a thought that quickly left due to hassle reasons).

But all this is is a teething period where no one likes the new way of doing something. But in the long run is probbably better as it will reduce numbers of "Dissapearing players"

Re: Private Line to Multiple Recipients
I'm glad you reconsidered. :)  Noone should be left in a game who has asked to be removed from it.  If you don't like the way they ask, then simply do not allow them in any future game.

I'm also assuming some of the hassle would be from the moderators who would then have to step in to deal with something that they shouldn't need to .... ;) So, if anyone is seriously considering this, please don't. :)

Re: Private Line to Multiple Recipients
I love this new feature. Players can't vanish without a word so easily, and it helps keep our community games tidy. :D And if there's activity in a defunct game, we're easily alerted to it.

Just a question: does a board only reappear on a player's sticky-list if there's a new post in a group that they are a member of? Or does it happen if there's a post in any group?

One more question. It's probably not a bug, but a feature I didn't see in the updates list and also quite like. I've not been getting indicators for posts in groups that I am not a member of. Is this okay? If so, that's great, because false indicators have been a big complaint in multi-group games. Thanks!

Re: Private Line to Multiple Recipients
I've noticed that when I quote things in-game, it displays it differently to how it used to.

It might have said 'quote so-and-so' before, now it just has the name (or just the word 'quote' if using the quote command).

Of course, that may not be an error. It's just different.

There's one other thing, although I'm not sure it would make a difference for most people. Is it possible to centre tables? I can't seem to get it to work (either in game threads or the character description area).

Re: Private Line to Multiple Recipients
There were some of us who complained (vociferously) about the "So-and-so typed:" wording in the previous quote feature.  Perhaps it was removed due to that.

By center table, do you mean?

Table, centered.


Via:
<center><table width="50%"><tr><td>Table, centered.</td></tr></table></center>

Re: Private Line to Multiple Recipients
I mean the table centred in the middle of the page, rather than content centred within the table.

As for the quotes, ok.

Re: Private Line to Multiple Recipients
What you may be seeing is a difference in how different browsers interpret the code they receive.

In IE, that table is in the center of the page.  In Firefox, it isn't.  It's difficult to get them to cooperate on the matter.

Note to jase: "center" is just putting a "text-align: center" on the DIV around the table.  Any way to slip a "margin-left auto;margin-right: auto;" on the "center" tag's children?  Don't even know if that's possible.

Re: Private Line to Multiple Recipients
Yeah.  IE takes the instruction "text-align: center" and centers other things too (it probably shouldn't), while Firefox takes the instruction quite literally and just centers text.

I see what you mean. It shows up in Google Chrome and Seamonkey the same as in Firefox.

Re: Private Line to Multiple Recipients
Small think I just noticed in a game.

When you click the "reply" link on a post in a private thread it writes "In reply to XXXX (msg #N-1):" instead of N so if you are replying to the first post in that thread it writes down "In reply to XXXX (msg #0):" instead of 1 and so on with all the others.

In reply to cruinne (msg #263):

Is there a way to align the tables so the top row of information can be turned 90 degrees? Just asking if it is currently possible.

And of course, how do you do it if it is possible.

That count above is right ... so either jase has fixed it already, or maybe there was a deleted post in the particular thread you were having problems with which threw the counter out ?  :>

Re: Private Line to Multiple Recipients
Weird, I'm seeing those tables as centred w/ centred text in IE9, FF9 and CG17.


"In reply" will be fixed soon(ish) for PMs, thanks.


Vertical text can be done in a lot of browsers, however it doesn't work in older versions.  While I'm all for progress - it'd result in pretty horrible tables for those using browsers that didn't support it, so I think it's best avoided (for now).

Re: Private Line to Multiple Recipients
Hmm weird bug or something that I just noticed in one of my games.

When you copy/paste a link to a different thread in the same game the "http://" prefix gets added twice.

Example: http://link to a message in this forum

Edit: Apparently happens here too :P.

Firefox 12 on Win 7 Professional x86. Don't have any other browsers here to test it (for some reason IE just doesn't want to work).

Are you previewing before posting?  Sometimes there are odd glitches there.

Might be your machine I'm afraid.  Can't replicate it here.  Try it without addons, or a different browser (for testing purposes, I'm not suggesting you stop using your favourite addon or browser).

Likely yeah. I didn't notice it during the weekend and just noticed it when I got to work and posted. The odd thing is that it didn't happen last week (using this same computer+configuration).

I'll test it on my home computer tonight.
