Something Could be Better? SHOUT!

Post by domsalvia » Fri Feb 02, 2018 7:14 pm

Hi all,
Thanks for coming to visit! A forum is only as good as what it gives to the users. If something could be better, if you think we've missed something you would like, let us know! Post here, or PM myself or @tainkirrahe or some potential future mod and we will see about getting it sorted for you.

This is a place that belongs to all of you so let us know what would make it better and we will make our best efforts to make it happen!

Much Love!
Dom

I think email notifications are by user and can be enabled from the notifications settings in the top right of the site.

...yup! Okay, then could replying to a topic automatically subscribe you to it (if it doesn't already)?

I think I've set that now, but time will tell. If it's not working I'll investigate again!

Okay! Also, the links in the email notifications aren't working for me? Sorry if I'm spamming...

Small suggestion, depending on what options this version of phpBB allows you - a couple more profile fields that display under your avatar. Location is the big one, I really like knowing where everyone's from at a glance, and maybe something for social media like your Twitter handle.

EDIT: Okay, so it IS an option, I found it! For anyone else, the fields in question are under Edit Profile in the Profile tab of the User Control Panel.

The default for "newly registered user" was not allowing profile fields to be set until they moved up to "registered user" after 3 posts. Made it so they should be available from the start \o/

That's why it felt like I didn't see them before. Thanks!

To auto subscribe to threads you post in Go to your User Control Panel (click on your name in the top right, pick UCP from the menu), then go to the board preferences tab in there, then the edit posting defaults section. There should be a setting in there for you.

Apparently only lets me like some posts and not others!

Yours above? Not an option. Mine above yours? Yes!
