Based on those two statements Basschat should probably dump the ability to have signatures completely. After all if you can't do anything creative with them and over half the audience can't even see them, then what is the point?

It's quick and easy to ignore all signatures, or (as I do) just ignore those of users who feel the need to tell their life story, display their entire bass collection or use their signature as a surrogate for a personal website... 🙂

I think this used to happen before, but while we've being asked – the sign saying, there's another tag we're not showing you is bigger than the tag itself

From a human point of view that looks a bit confusing, but in the grand scheme of programming the thing in the first place, it is the difference between

 

if( numberOfTags > sizeWeWantWithTags)

    show( "and " + (numberOfTags - numberOfTagsShown) + " more ")

 

and

while(numberOfTagsShown < totalTags)

{

  tagSize = CalculateSizeThatNextTagWouldBe (tags[numberOfTagsShown]

   if( TotalCurrentSize + tagSize > sizeWeWantWithTags)

     break;

 AddTagToList(tags[numberOfTagsShown])

 totalCurrentSize += tagSize

}

if( numberOfTags > sizeWeWantWithTags)

    show( "and " + (numberOfTags - numberOfTagsShown) + " more ")

 

In my own work I would go for the second, but I am paid stupid money to do that rather than doing it for shats and giggles.

Do you have to view everyone’s profile now to see where there from and their achievements 

 

Location comes up on desktop. We're working on the achievements bit - they've changed a few things around that, in favour of badges and awards etc.

There's that gap under 'Administrator' but we're looking into that. Otherwise, just a case of getting used to it I think. We may work on a second theme to try but it takes a long time to get right. In the meantime you can increase magnification on your browser

Does the little shield on your avatar mean you are covid secure?

 

Yes it links with the NHS app, and the vaccine itself allows you to post on BC by thinking really hard over 5G

From a  process pov, my task, as a user of the forum, is to respond to a call for visual or functional details that could be polished. My trying to second guess which ones could be reasonably felt to be worth the necessary effort would just make the process less efficient / effective.

Pasting a URL on its own seems to work, but pasting a text containing URL's doesn't. They become links. Any way of making the System understand better, please..? I use this feature quite a lot when moderating. Pretty please..?

 

Example...

 

Good evening, xxxxx , and ...

No, seriously... It took me a few weeks to get used to the previous theme and functioning; 'twill be the same this time around. That's progress, I suppose. Well done for going through this gruelling and thankless task. I'll have forgotten all about any minor glitches in about ten minutes time. Good Stuff, and Jolly Good Show. https://i.imgur.com/R91KekF.gif

Works perfectly. I was using this trick before the update, especially for stubborn YouTube links. 😉

It works perfectly once I've updated all my stored links, that I use in other Fora. Never mind, I'll just create a new, special 'BC' list of Stuff To Insert, with special 'non-BB' code. Oh yes, I can get it to work alright, but each time it's a faff more. I'm trying too hard, I think. Sigh...

... and now my cheery 'Thumb's Up' has become a link, where it was good just now..! Sorcery, I say; sorcery..!

 

R91KekF.gif It works if I 'copy/paste' from previous posts, though. How odd..!
