Feature request:

Automatic merging double posts.

Benefits:

-If you accidentally double post you can edit your post and fix it instead of waiting for a mods to do so.

-If you want to reply to 2 different people at different times and your post is still the last one you can do so and it will be automatically merged to your first post. More than once I've been going trough a thread, replied to someone, continued scrolling and find something else I'd like to reply to. Yes I know I can edit the first post but as far as I'm aware editing in a @ won't send the person a notification, nor it will bump the thread.

not sure where to ask, so I will ask here; is there a way to set it so that images/videos do not load/embed and just display a link instead, or hide all together?

A nit picky request.

When you click a thread (or the tiny page number), you go to the thread page as intended, but you are placed at the top of the page.

If there an option (maybe in settings) where you click the thread and it whisks you away to the bottom of that page so you can start at the most recent posts first?

Or is it just me?
This should now be fixed.

When you make a new thread there is a listing of threads with similiar words to help prevent creating a thread someone has already created.

I just wanted to say that is a really good idea and I like that feature a lot.

I still get the "line break" issue, where it doesn't always put a line break after an image or video even when you put textdon't put one yourself. This leads to me having to check the preview before I post each time because it will sometimes add two line breaks if I add one myself, other times it will not add one so my text is butted up against the image/video.

Any chance that can be fixed?

Also, I would like to use the "clips" from this site http://vlipsy.com in my posts, but the embed option they give doesn't work on GAF. Is there anyway to have them appear in a GAF post without having to go offsite to view it? Its an html5 video afaics.

Use "insert link" at the top of the message box. You can leave the text box empty and it will just show the link, or you can enter something in there and that will be the link. If you want to hide it you have to use the spoiler tags I believe.

I don't know if this slipped or intentional but I can't edit threads titles anymore.

You are a VIP member then because that's only for the mods if i know correctly.
I requested it couple of years ago with a reasonable reason and I guess they gave it to me

You make lots of threads without trolling or fuckery so if you asked I think you'll be fine

I wish toolbar was a bit more aggressive about NOT hiding stuff behind dots. This looks a bit too conservative:

I don't think you can do that as a neo member. Otherwise there's an edit button next to the report button

This is how it looks:

I can do it as a Neo Member. They might be on mobile where you have to click on the three dots at bottom left of post, even I was confused earlier.

Not available for me it seems.
Edit: Now it is, but not for my older posts.

I do have a small complaint. Before the update I didn't have any issues adding emojis. Now after the update everytime I try to add emojis it freezes up my mobile device. It's almost like it's trying to load everything at once because after a while it seems to work. But sometimes it crashes my browser.

It could just be my device but I never had this issue before. Strangely adding Gifs doesn't give me the same issue.

I've noticed several times on the main page that the latest thread from Gaming Discussion is shown as ignored and I ignore only one thread from Off-Topic. Here's the picture:



Is it because the last post was written by an ignored user?

It always show at least 4 notifications for me. It never goes to zero, it starts at 4 and goes up as they add up. After reading them, it returns at 4.

Only happens on Android (Firefox).

Just wanted to say that, since the last couple of days, the problem seems to have been solved. Thanks!

Palliasso Palliasso Hey brother, the quotation box isn't functioning well

Pressing enter to make a new line takes me off the box and puts me under it

Do what I am currently doing till it gets fixed

Just write whatever you want in the standard post box and when you're done highlight it all and click the quote icon

Most of the feedback has been positive. What are your issues specifically?
Pages fails to load, pressing enter to skip a line skips two instead, pressing enter while writing a thread deletes the title, and I don’t know if it’s intentional or not but the quote feels weird. You either highlight it all and then click the quote button or you’ll not be able to skip lines and add more stuff.

First time hearing this, and haven't had these issues personally. What browser and platform?

I’ve posted about odd behaviour on iOS browsers before (I’ve definitely posted about broken lists in another thread), there’s so many things that go wrong. I’ve thought about recording myself writing my posts just to show how strange it is at times. I’ll have to start logging what’s happening and when, because at this point I work round it.
This sentence was supposed to be a new paragraph under the one below, but the line break brought the cursor and line break here instead.

Sometimes I just use BBCode because I know where I stand with it. It’s gotten better, though.

I like that a line break under new quotes will take you out of the quote, it makes sense to me. But I have been stuck in a quote before, I had to abandon the whole reply and start again. Again, wish I could remember the exact circumstances to give a proper bug report.

edit: I don’t want it to make it sound worse than it is, when I say broken I mean a few things are cracked.

EviLore EviLore I'm sure this has already been brought up, but I thought I'd bring it up anyways.

There is this bug I've noticed with the bell icon for reactions where it flashes a number when you open up a new page. Even if you've seen all of your reactions already.

Not a huge problem, but thought I'd mention it.
Still happens to me.
