Ask the Team!

Thanks for letting me know. Sucks that if I want to edit my class then I’ll have to open 19 more places :frowning:

Hey Car, I’ve updated the edit limits - you should be able to update your posts again.

Hey! My cover shop has been hidden (it was under construction), is there any way to make it public now that it’s open? Thank you!

Are users ever going to be able to change their own usernames? (sorry if this has been answered already)

1 Like

No, only brand new users can change their usernames for a limited period after signing up. After that, a mod will have to do it for you :slight_smile:

Just curious, is there a reason for this?
And who do I ask to change my username? I just want to drop the second a. (ilianasarigo to iliansarigo)

Yes, because we have to keep track of username changes and every time a username is changed, it requires the forum to change over all posts to the new name. In the case of users with lots of posts, this can put a large strain on the site, which is why we limit the ability.

That’s a good reason. And it’s not possible to have it not edit the past posts.

I’ll leave it, then.

Just making sure (because my memory is wonky xD) but I heard that the game-roleplay section of the forum has specific rules that, as soon as we make a duplicate of a thread, then the older thread will be closed in two days afterward. Is it still working like that now?

I notice that the chat thread has much longer lifespan now (two weeks I think? I remember the older one have only like few days lifespan) so it might worth asking about the other section.

Also, is archiving a thread still an option? We have absolutely no problems with any of our threads being closed sooner or later, but it would be nice if we can view them again later.

Yes.

Archiving a thread was never an option (and will not become an option), unless you archive it yourself off-forum (as pdf, in a blog post etc).

Is it me, or did some of the threads in the Chatters have the ability to reply removed from them?

Which ones? Maybe they were old and got automatically closed.

If you have an example, can you please run through the troubleshooting steps below and report it as a bug if the problem persists? Someone just mentioned something similar and CJ will need the info to pinpoint the issue. Thank you!

I noted a few: Polls for Fun, Asylum, and mine. I can guarantee that all of these have posts daring to at most two days ago. And I believe that the closing limit for Chatters threads is 14 days.

Yup, I’ll make sure to do that!
