For example in this post https://www.rpgwatch.com/forums/show…ostcount=13381 I see something like "Yeah, I’ve thought …".

Edit: Is it possible that the post editor produces unicode but the overall page templates are made for Western?

When I switch to Unicode manually, I see the text correctly.
Yes, if I do that in Chrome it looks a lot better. However if I change the page itself to UTF-8, which should be the same as doing it through Chrome, the results are not the same. It is still a garbled mess.
You can check that by changing the forum template (at the left bottom of the page). By default it is Lapis Watch. If you change that to Amber Watch, it uses UTF-8.

Thought about that, but there are a number of things to consider:
1) At RPGDot the system was flawed because there were many people, just rating it with a 1 or a 10.
This can be prevented by only allowing people to rate games when they have a minimum amount of votes.

2) A rating without a comment is not helpful.
I don't want to add the comment to the rating, but want to integrate the comment to the forums. to facilitate discussing the game.


This isn't impossible, but I don't want to do that using this forum software anymore.

What about just an up or downvote and only for people with a minimum of 10 forum posts?

Might be something interesting to look at on the future software. I wonder if it might work to restrict the ratings to a sort of members' voting academy. Doesn't need to be exclusive at all, but just to restrict it to folks who agree to give sensible ratings and meaningful comments, and not the 0/10 hysterics.

We should have a username generator for bots

Damn true I just love the names. Yet some use brand product names as well.

Just remember some are people paid penny's to create accounts as well.

Well, looks like this person already earned 0xe2585fe7 = 3,797,442,535 pennies!

Myrthos,

Is the "Happy Birthday" thread locked? I can't see the Quick Reply form that's usually located at the end of each page!

Well I'm not Myrthos but the thread is labeled as closed. So yes no one can post.

Oh. I can't imagine that was intentional, so I opened it again.

Can we get the ability to list multiple developers for games. It is becoming increasingly common for AAA particularly.

Two questions related to images.

1) Is it possible to post images in the forums, that enlarge when clicked upon, like the images in the articles? The only alternative I found was to make the image a link to itself (which is a good workaround, just less impressive). From the IMG help page that doesn't seem possible, but I'm asking in case there's another way.

2) I often do this to avoid the extra line between the image or video and caption (like ex. below), it looks good on my browser, but I was wondering… could that render badly on other platform or browsers, because I put the image and the caption on the same line? Do you see that correctly?

@Redglyph: We are not going to add any new functionality to the forum software as it will be replaced somewhere in the future.

@Silver: Obviously everything is possible, but at the moment it is a 1-1 relationship. To make it a 1-n relationship, requires quite a bit of work. So, this is not going to be a quick fix.

It was more a question on the current functionalities than a change request, I should have posted that elsewhere but didn't deem it worth a thread

Wow, a change of forum engine. Are you updating the version or changing completely?
