It's a shame that the forum has become just about ripping models, rather than creating them. I have no problem in theory with people doing it. While you could technically say it's warez, the majority of developers don't mind and enjoy seeing their art being re-used for fan pro...
Yeah the original intention was to isolate those forums and appear as their own. I'm not sure it's working out like that, and I feel it's a lot to maintain them all instead of just this style.
The rules aren't explicit, everything is subjective, intent is a factor. We're not the police, we don't have to prove anything. Everyone knows why he was posting how he was posting, so we just get rid of him.
I've posted an updated Rules Page to make things a bit more clear where we stand on things. Here's some responses you can copy and paste to save you some time This is going to degrade the immense quality of discussion on this forum Waste of time having moderators One step fo...
You guys only want a rules list so you can catch other people breaking the rules. Why don't you just use your common sense and act accordingly. Same goes for moderators.
The moderators shouldn't be using the report feature
Report spamming and illegal stuff. The moderators are the police, not your school teacher or mom.
The last post in the UE forum, in any thread that wasn't created by a bot was 2 months ago. If someone had replied to a thread a week ago it's be 3rd on the page. If someone had replied to a thread today, it'd be first on the page. People have been making the excuse that "goo...
Looking into it now

Yeah this should work now.
Putting a bunch of books in a library makes it hard to find the other books
Really? You're having trouble finding all the interesting threads?
Does it happen without custom css?

Auth Site Updates
I've updated the auth system. Can have multiple logins of same type Link to delete account Can migrate multiple legacy accounts Can remove auth methods (must always have 1) The legacy migration stuff is currently broken, but should start working later today.
I think to make new threads stand out a bit more, we could show an icon there instead of <1
Again, I'm more interested in what people viewing and joining the forums will want, rather than retaining the current membership.
What was the old optimistic icon?
A lot of people think like this. "What if we have 500 subforum games, this isn't going to work". It's a matter of presentation, it's not a big issue, it's not something we have to deal with now.
Maybe go to the TV or Movies section?
I'm gonna re-add ban words just so I can add a 7 day ban to "clog up".
Yeah we can definitely do better on sizing them now they're vectors. I want more ratings, so it needs re-organising anyway.
4chan and reddit work properly in terms of people creating new threads, because your new post inside a thread isn't going to get read. The threads become more unusable the longer they exist. This forum is the opposite in that no-one posts new threads, so new threads hardly ge...
I can see why people think like this, but I don't want broad categories like this where the threads inside are megathreads. I want forums that are on specific subjects, where the threads inside are threads.
Yeah I agree, the informative is shitty. The paint drips on the artistic run into each other too.
Icon Debate Punch, closing this thread.
Why do these threads always turn into general "bitch about stuff" threads. If you're unhappy with something, please make a thread to discuss it.
Sorry, what conclusion did you come to?
It's an attitude thing. If go around a friend's house and their mom cooks you a burger, do you say "Thanks for cooking me this burger, I don't really like this sauce - could I have some ketchup please?" or "This burger is shit, the sauce is horrible, it's all over it, I can...
Yeah I can appreciate this, if anyone wants to recommend feeds, make a thread.
Yeah this is something I don't agree with. The sections exist, so it makes sense for bots to post in each one, should we choose it.
You'd rather have these? https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/1/58182477-63fd-4fe7-8532-246e86a0bc57/1f64b.png https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/1/ead4a852-a0c1-449e-93df-4353fc2f474f/1f3ae.png https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/1/2ecd381b-6f32-4d90-a...
Forums are meant to have new threads. If threads being posted are "choking" a forum, there's something wrong with how you use the forum.
Yeah I prefer beefy outlines too. This pack is annoying in that the border gets thinner the higher the resolution is. https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/1/9f4ab1b7-4135-4f86-ae39-4f9a0d85398b/icons8-broccoli-30.png https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/1/3a7810...
The issue with people making icons is that we need them to make them all. If 3 icons get changed it's no good. The idea with choosing an icon pack is that there are shitloads of icons, all in matching style. We don't have to ask people to make them if we're adding a new featur...
How could I possibly stop them?
There's a huge effort gap between saying something doesn't work and making something that does work, no matter how valid those reasons are.
Show me your plan
Won't ever happen. It's easier to talk shit than to try to make things better.
Sorry, I made it so you won't get notified the first time it posts now, should make it less annoying.
The whole surface or just the screen?
Can you email me, email@example.com - I haven't actually tested this feature yet.. but it needs to work for us to comply with gdpr.
press ctrl + f5 I guess
I just pushed another update, find out what changed by using the forums. Let me know if it broke anything.
Turns out reporting was broke for non mods - should work now !
It should work fine, give it a try
I know that that is, you'll probably have to subscribe and unsubscribe to the forum - will fix
I updated some stuff. You can find out what changed by using the forum. The one thing I want to draw attention to is that I added a report feature. There's no way for moderators to see reports yet - I'm going to add that feature tomorrow, I want to have some data to work with...
I get this too, can't seem to find out why. It works fine in the emulators.
Just because I'm not in these threads answering your concerns and kissing your ouchies, it doesn't mean they're not being read. I've been busy I've got two kids I'm building a house I own a game development company I do whatever I want I want to make the forums better Someti...
it isn't/shouldn't be
People bitched and moaned at the pixel stuff People bitched and moaned at the coins stuff
The forums aren't a standalone generic piece of software. They're closely tied in with our sites system. https://files.facepunch.com/garry/36e1c36f-88e2-4525-88a7-30dc0290cc31.png And while time could be spent decoupling it, you might as well go away and make your own open ...
Not gonna happen tho
Yeah I’m sure, maybe I’ll just stop trying, shut it down, and you guys can move to a self hosted vbuletin. I’ll even give you our modded source?
Haven't read the entire thread, so some information that might be useful. "active users", "online users", and "viewers" are subjective. They're all based on some period of time. That period of time can be configured. So none of the graphs based on scraping historical displaye...
Ratings shouldn't show there anymore. If they do it's because you're being rated on a server that didn't get the update yet.
Why are we having the same arguments over and over and over? No-one told these guys to spam a ton of low quality threads about subjects they weren't interested in discussing. They did that because they're assholes. Not because of a lack of communication. Not spamming is commo...
So this thread got derailed.
I do like the idea, I'm just considering how it'd best be implemented.
What's the disaster you think is going to happen?
They knew what they were doing. This isn't on Hezzy.
There's a difference between what Hezzy said and what was created. It's fine to create a thread about something you want to discuss. It's not so great to create a thread to host a discussion you're not interested in, and just to be the one that created the thread. It's espec...
That's up to Hezzy, if he thinks that's the way to go then fine. I'm not forcing behaviour, I'm trying to make it more attractive to make new threads instead.
I haven't banned megathreads. There are plenty of megathreads still on the forums. I'm telling mods to stop banning people for creating new threads instead of posting in megathreads.
That model is called a "forum"
Why do people keep talking about reddit?
And I'm sure that's what they thought too when they were enjoying making all those dumb threads.
Creating spam threads to make a point isn't feedback. It's childish, malicious compliance.
Creating any thread is fine if the reason isn't malicious.
Let me know if I missed any
Yep - also on the list
Yeah this is on my todo list
No - there's no need to delete subforums, it makes no difference. They're not hurting anyone.
But if we didn't have subforums, and there were five tf2 threads, what would you do?
I'm going to add an autoban on the word "clutter". You guys think that threads in a forum are "clutter"? You don't want to see these game threads in a game forum?
But now they have a choice to post about Mario games in a Mario forum. And their threads won't get knocked off the forum by 20 megathreads that are being posted in exclusively by the same 30 people, who never actually view the forum they're in to see the guy's mario thread.
I'd make the argument that the root forum encompasses the child content, is not exclusive to it. The way to cut out clutter is to enter a child forum, not its parent.
Yeah that's nice
This is turning into a bit of a megathread. Closing - make threads if you have issues.
I don't get what you want, a forum for each country, or a forum for each language?
Yep - you're right - this has been fixed
I was thinking of this. I was wondering if Creationism Corner fits into this. Whether it should be a root forum for all these other subforums.
