Members will now see their own threads when posting in a forum that requires moderator approval. Hopefully this'll cut down on the duplicate threads being created when people don't read the notices about the threads being invisible until approved.

Tiny tiny update!

Running low on PM space? It's now been increased to 200 for regular members, and multiplied if you're a supporter. Now you can breathe easier.

Did it seriously take me this long to optimize Poké Link 4 Blue, Poké Link 4 Pink and The Johto Elite for fixed-width viewing? Nonetheless, it's finally happening.

Secret! Set your Style Accent to "4280AB" and use Stand Nexus. That's all.

Tonight:
  • Previous usernames are now shown in postbits. Click on the user's name in a post to see what they were previously known as (under "also known as") - also, I realize it's currently ugly--in the 2.0 redesign the whole popup is different and will be more functional
  • Userbars are now more useful. Hover over a "Moderator" userbar to see what sections that moderator is in charge of
  • Clicking on the battle server staff bar now takes you to the thread with info on how to join the battle server
  • Clicking on a community supporter userbar will now take you to the thread with info on how to donate/donation perks

Tonight:
  • Links to the Battle Server have been added to the navigation links, right next to chat. Which leads me to...
  • In order to make room for the Battle Server links, the "Your Options" menu has been removed from the navbar. You can now access the same menu by clicking on your username up at the top next to where it says "Welcome"
  • The list of themes from the dropdown menu at the bottom of each page has been rearranged and now display them in alphabetical order
  • A new type of announcement has been added to the forums. Occasionally, moderators and administrators may post "global" announcements (also called howlers :D) that will appear on the main forum index. There is no way to hide these and I have no intention of making it possible, so please, don't ask.

Ears open, guys! The [sound] tag has been deprecated (meaning I will personally murder it someday). It's been supplanted with a new [audio] tag. It sports HTML5 and falls back to Flash if you're using a crappy web browser. (The audio tag does not accept a "title" where the sound tag will continue to.)


Usage:
[audio]URL of MP3 file[/audio]

Some small updates:
  • Pasting a normal YouTube URL will automatically convert the URL into the embedded video now. No need to use the BBcode anymore.
  • You can now choose a default font/color for your posts on the edit profile page at the very bottom
  • Anniversaries for being a member on PC are now shown at the bottom next to birthdays

Small update with the new unread thread marking feature. Anything older than 3 days will now be automatically marked as read. Hopefully this will cut down on the clutter in subscribed threads/improve general usefulness of the feature. I figure if after 3 days you haven't read a something, you probably don't care about it, haha.

It should also speed up the forums, which have been noticeably slower since this switch.

Another small update. I just went ahead and added size, fonts, strike, image, highlight, spoiler, sup, sub, youtube, div, and span tags to quick reply. Most people use Quick Reply, but it's a pain to do simple formatting when using it, so this should help a little. Enjoy!

This may look odd on some profiles, which will be fixed soon.

When caught up with the whole "YouTube URLs now automatically embed" business, we neglected to point out that we now have a tag for embedding live Twitch.tv streams.

Watch live video from twitchplayspokemon on www.twitch.tv

The tag is "[twitch]" and the channel name. (If you're not already doing so, go watch Twitch play Pokémon.)

Thank you very much.

When you say a filtered word (you know, like those bad words your mommy told you not to say!), letters are now replaced with ♥'s instead of *'s! Don't like it? Well tough ♥♥♥♥!

Certain forums have been exempt from the minimum character limit for some time, but the forum still gave you an error message when you didn't have at least 25 characters in your posts. Tonight we fixed that, no more "fillerfillerfiller" :D

You can also check the minimum character limit for the forum you're posting in by looking at the "Posting Rules" box at the bottom left of each forum/thread/reply page/etc.
