There was an informal mention that the website would get an upgrade (from the "problem with the search function" thread, I think), but no actual announcement.

And yes, the templates need some love, I'm sure Triff is hard at work on it. Software upgrades are the worst.

One note: We are not able anymore to edit our own posts. I did a typing mistake and can not correct it.

Actually, we can, but the location of the Edit option has moved from just below the post (where it was located along with "Quote") and can now be found to the upper right of your post among the three-dot (...) "More options..."

I've accidentally and reflexively quoted myself several times lately.  Yeah, it's confusing.

!i!

@Trifletraxor I clicked 'Submit Reply', but the text in the box didn't disappear, and no new post was added to the thread. This happened again, and then the text disappeared but the post still didn't appear. I wrote it again, and then it worked. And then the previous posts appeared too: https://basicroleplaying.org/topic/13078-clan-economics-or-bread-and-peas-in-times-of-hero-wars/page/2/?tab=comments#comment-203678

Yeah, this happens when the network is slow, or the response is slow. I sometimes copy my reply, or reopen the thread in a different tab, to see if the reply made it in, otherwise I edit the duplicate post away, as you did.

I haven't otherwise noticed this multi-posting problem since the upgrade.

I've seen it quite a few times, before that.  It seems to have been sporadic, with long(ish) periods where I noticed no multi-posts (and thus I feel the current state is not proof of a "fix"), and periods where multi-posts were relatively frequent (weekly(ish)?).

There's been a long standing bug where, if you have a thread that has 2 pages, and you write your reply while on the first page, your reply will show up on page 2, obviously, but you won't see it (since you're on page 1)... so it looks like your post was sent but lost.

There might be another similar but different bug after the upgrade, though, if there's a problem even for 1-page-long threads, or when posting correctly on the last page.

Haven't encountered this myself. Bandwidth on the forum end should be good enough. It automatically upgrade the hosting to a more expensive plan when they number of active members online reach a new threshold.

hopefulyl you are not paying the freight yourself, good sir—or perhaps you meant more expansive path...?

Is the site affected by the Log4J vulnerability, and is that why it was down for a while today?

I don't think so. Just updated the software to be sure I didn't miss a security update, but it was only a bug update.

Would it be possible to increase the per-post emoji limit? I hit it when putting a lot of Gloranthan runes into a post.

I will have a look to see if it’s possible. How many does it take to reach your limit?

Looks like it's 75, but it's behaving differently now to what I saw earlier. Ah, probably because this time I'm editing, the other time I was posting. So if you write a new post with more than 75, it rejects it. But if you edit a post and go over the 75 limit, it just stops rendering them and you get the colon-rune-name-colon text for the remainder.

Hm, no I'm wrong, the post below behaves the same as when I edited. Maybe you get a reject if it's the first post in a new thread.

Hmmm, nope that's not it! No idea why I'm not getting an error message this time!

Invision say:

Quote

We allow up to 75 emoticon images per post. This is hardcoded and is meant to prevent issues with users maliciously linking to thousands of images on a single page (which can then cause resource issues with the server itself).

However, look at his reply to get round it:

note that these are emoticons (uploaded) as opposed to emojis (international standard)

Yeah that doesn't work for me, as I said I hit the limit when editing as well. I think they fixed the workaround since 2018. Shame they didn't make it configurable while they were at it!
