Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    May I just say that the stylish script is pretty boss? Only complaint is the alternate blue color is still a tad bright. But much easier on the eyes than the endless white.

    I was using a custom stylesheet on the old forums that turned everything black on white anyway to make it less obvious whilst posting at work. I actually like this new muted palette. Why be Denny Different about it?

    Because change is bad.

    Actually, mainly because I'm reading it at close to 4 in the frickin' morning and my eyes are tired.

    Oh hey! You can dismiss threads you don't want to see.

    No more glorious edict for me!

    More of a softer warm color than orange, and when you get used to it and then turn it off, your eyes will truly cry out in pain

    How do I know where I have posted in threads?

    ·
  • nateknatek Registered User regular
    you can bookmark threads on the right side of the page
    it is the opposite of where to look than the blue dot but it still is a marker for threads

    I think that's what they mean by blue dots are now yellow bookmarks to the right... still figuring this out though

    In the words of the ancients, one should make his decision within the space of seven breaths. It is a matter of being determined and having the spirit to break through to the other side

    I seem to have everything red on the right, maybe I changed a setting.....

  • nateknatek Registered User regular
    you need to manually click the little bookmark tab on the far right
    it turns yellow I think
    that is your blue dot

    Is there a way to access one's old list of tracked/subscribed threads? Please (!) tell me there's a way.

    That's far better than having to infract people for blue dotting a thread.

    Why god, why? Is it my machine that is fucking this up?

    The answer is blowin' in the wind.
    Edit: I also learned that I was a "User" today, so where is my lightcycle.

    you may have, somewhere along the line, used control+scroll wheel which makes text bigger or smaller. It happens to me sometimes and makes for jaggy text.

    With the cleaner topic list, I actually haven't really relied on that feature yet, even.

    My eyes no longer try to jump out of my skull trying to parse the bolded white text clumped all a clutter, so I've just been clicking on the threads by topic title alone

    But subscribing to a thread is now easier and quicker! just click the little bookmark icon on the right side of a thread.

    I like that you can "dismiss" stickied threads

    but I wish you could dismiss any thread!

    I don't wanna see Phallas or WoW threads or Pony Threads!

    Wrong kind of survival, think Zombies not Dungeons and Dragons. Rifles and Machetes for everyone.

    really? it only said 7000 for me, and i know I have ... well, lots and lots more than that

    but then it also said I've only made 3 threads so maybe there's some kind of date filtering going on.

    31 for me so far. I turned off the notifications to everything but PMs but I'm still getting a rising number by my name up top. Kinda annoying.

    I'm not sure about the post thing. I had 59k before the new forums and now I have 16k. It might just :bz that it keeps track of only the posts still on the database.

    I'm going to use thae bee for every be I type from now on.

    If you go to your preferences, you can uncheck notifications for bookmarked solutions.
