Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

You are now probably on my cat's blacklist.



In comments for news, quotation doesn't seem to work properly. The syntax I'm talking about is this:

> quoted text

my answer to the quoted text

Instead of just the quoted text being marked as quoted, the whole comment gets marked as quoted, including my answer to the quoted text. I feel like this is a feature that would be nice to have working in comments since there is relatively often need to quote certain parts of the news article. I also know this is a feature that should ideally work since IIRC the comment section supports Markdown and this is exactly how you use Markdown.

----------

On another note, a similar problem seems to apply to switching to preformatted text in forum posts:

  1. I typed one line as I usually do and pressed Enter.
  2. I changed to preformatted text and pressed Enter.
  3. I switched from preformatted style to paragraphed style.
  4. The preformatted text switched to paragraphed (or possibly unformatted).

The regardless of what I would type or selected after the paragraphed text, my style selection would apply to everything after the first line. I had to edit the source code to get this post to format correctly.

----------

EDIT: Another nice thing would be if the post actually looked something like it does in the editor. I did have preformatted text in the editor but not in the post itself after I posted it, so I edited the post to format... more clearly, at the very least, if not as I intended. I think the horizontal line is another one that doesn't work properly, and I think I've encountered others that don't work either but can't remember those anymore.

Can we combine 2 existing threads into one? I found an old thread I was looking for a long time , I used topic search instead of music thread search in 2019 .I love it too.

One of my Supporter Perk ideas was a personal 'vault' of Emoticons for users to easily access that they could upload themselves but I don't know how feasible it was, basically ripping some Discord ideas, Lol.

Like 5 Emoticons for Bronze, 10 for Silver, 15 for Gold, Gifs could have the same feature.

This will never happen, Lol.

Just lock it, I would like that feature too but no telling what/when stuff gets added now.



I've two questions.

How many people view threads via here: VGChartz

Vs here: VGChartz

If you view solely through homepage, do you think a page sorting option would be useful? VGChartz only displays 14 threads at a time in comparison to ResetEra's 40, I noticed the other day as I created a bunch of threads, it was also the same date as the Nintendo Direct and half of the days threads were then pushed out of sight.

So I sorta thought why not have a page numbering somewhere on the front page for threads, either above or below...Page 1 = First 13, Page 2 = Next 13, etc. Would you use that? Would it be useful? Do you think it will help you see more relatively recent threads?



I just noticed quoting seems to have issues with character encodings. I quoted this post: https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=9373388 and the result was this: https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=9373395 Note the addition of some fairly interesting characters, e.g. €, which are not found in the original post.

In case it matters:

  • I'm using Firefox.
  • I have English set as my preferred language in the browser settings.
  • I'm using a Finnish keyboard (and obviously a Finnish keyboard layout as well), and there's definitely some Finnish locale settings enabled in Windows.
