  1. Not even sure if worth investigating considering I only ran into it now. Take your mouse, select the text starting with "Not..." and end RIGHT at the spoiler bar, clicking at Quote Selection. The content is shown in the editor, but cannot be successfully submitted. Also not even if you add text below it. More specifically, I struggled with this at this topic, trying to only quote the spoiler with the 2nd image, the Link pony. I am not even sure it actually can be fixed, though, or being relevant enough at all. Edit: If you end your cursor in the first real line after the spoiler bar, it works - Regardless of whether the spoiler was opened (first line in spoiler box) or not. (first line after the spoiler box) Edit2: The same happens with the quote bar. The closest "easy fix" I could think of would be disabling the quote selection feature in these areas, but even that would likely require a lot of knowledge and programming of the code, lol. Edit 3: To specify, no error message gets shown, it simply doesn't happen anything.
  2. Ok, so I'm updating to Windows 10 from Windows 7 SP1. The upgrade went smoothly after I finally downloaded the windows media creation tool found here; The upgrade took a while and then Windows was slow after the install. If youopen up the Windows Store app (Windows logo on a bag icon in the task bar), you'll see it's still doing a bunch of stuff in the background. Ok, no problem, until I noticed a lot of the apps that it was downloading were failing. I figured it maybe needed another reboot, so I rebooted and found problem number one. When you upgrade to windows 10, the default login will be your windows live login, not the computer login you were using on windows 7. After digging through LastPass on my phone, I found my live login and got back into my machine. You will be given the option for logging in with your live id or a local account. Cool, no problem. I checked on the apps that Windows Store was having problems installing...still failing. A quick lookup of the error code pointed to a windows activation error. So I went to the settings app, Update & Security, Activation and click on the Activate button. 'Windows can't activate. Try again later. F-en great. After digging, I found a way to activate via phone. Here's the steps; Hold the windows button and push 'R' to get the run box. enter 'slui.exe 4' without the quotes and you'll be given a window with a phone number and a bunch of numbers. Calling that number gets you to an automated system where you enter all of these numbers to activate. It didn't work for me, so I was transferred to a call center (probably in india) , where the person explained to me that I would need to reinstall Windows 7 and upgrade.....bulllllllshit! I advised the lady with the indian accent, who was obviously reading from a script, that I had used the windows upgrade tool that microsoft had provided for performing the upgrade. After some silence from her, and hearing her talking to someone in the background, she told me she would transfer me to someone who could help. When I got to this new department, the useful automated announcement told me that I had at least a 20 minute hold time. Right now I'm still listening to that crappy microsoft jazztastic hold music. This must be where musicians go to die. More after I've escaped from this technological hell. ~update!~ After finally getting to someone else, they told me that the activation servers were completely overloaded and to keep trying. Seems like Microsoft underestimated how much bandwidth they would need for this...figures. Hurry up and wait.
  3. Since I'm usually viewing this website through my phone, it might be a mobile only problem but... Now I usually leave MLP FORUMS open in a tab for about an hour, I check back after the hour. There's a red circle with a 1 waiting for me. No problem. The problem is only once I open the notifications that I discovered that several more than just one notifications happened during my hour away. I ended up missing a status update from one of my closest friends because of this. Point being: the red notification number doesn't seem to properly count all the unread notifications when I quickly peek in the left opened tab. Maybe the number gets more recent when I simply go to another page? I would have provided photo evidence but since I already open the notifications, the number's gone. I'm going to retry this later and snap photo evidence to help better show the problem, but if any of you have a theory why this "unaccounted notification number" problems happens, let me know
  4. I am unable to use the d-pad and enter key sometimes while typing a message or making a post, occasionally. Like right now I am able to use the d-pad, other times for some reason I am unable to move around with it. When typing a message, for some reason I was able to use the enter key the first time to start a new line, but now I'm unable to do it again. Thots?
  5. OK, so I'm currently in a roleplay with @Emerald Heart and several others, but my post is apparently below the threshold despite being at 108 characters. Is this a technical issue?
  6. So, after the New Year, it seems every time I want to use an emoji (in a new post or status), the list at the top which featured the recently used emojis, is empty! Of course, when you try putting an emoji like this and then look again, it is showing up fine. The list is building up. But if I post another status, or post, the list is empty again. I suspect something is wrong with the code and it might have to do with the new year (date related)? I am just guessing. Am I the only one who has this problem?
  7. Follow You have not chosen how the notification should be sent. Notification Settings I meanwhile want to follow ppl for status updates but not posts anymore - that would be just getting too much. I am assuming i will get what I intend to here, and that the message simply doesn't take into account that status updates addon (assuming it is one)? AFAIK this only just happened once I disabled these notifications. Maybe I should just try out and then report back here.
  8. For some reason embedded videos, at least for me, don't play audio.
  9. So I wanna preface this with this: I'm thankful that everyone was caring and offered lots of help and showed a lot of concern for the site. We weren't hacked, DDoSed or anything like that really. We just experienced a symptom of old age it turns out! To get into a bit of technical stuff, we actually lost both of the main hard drives (SSDs) in the main web hosting server on the same day. To put this succinctly: This kills the server. After spending a day diagnosing the issue, the ops team and I were ready to submit the case to our hosting provider OVH and let them start replacing the parts. This is a great time for us to revisit our policies so that we're very sure that something like this wouldn't be a huge loss in the future. We already take daily backups of all of our services and put them offsite as well so that losing a host server like this isn't the end of the world. However due to this extended outage we're going to take our time and verify a few things to make sure that all of the processes we have in place are working as intended just in case something like this happens again in the near future (We just got new hardware, so fingers crossed it doesn't!). This has also given us a lot of insight in the lifetime of our servers and when we actually need to schedule this kind of maintenance with our hosting provider so that in the future we can plan for this and only end up with a few hours of downtime rather than two whole days. Really though. I want to thank everyone here, new and old for being here and giving the site life. This was a difficult time but a sign that we've been going long enough to wear out the hardware the site was running on and that to me is something to celebrate! Thanks again everyone and if you have any concerns or questions feel free to inbox me or post them here!
  10. So I've noticed that certain groups of staff arent being featured in the daily birthday list, like events and RP staff. Had it happen to me. Noticed it happen to others. The forums are a good place to celebrate and it kinda sucks when nopony knows and you're glossed over.
  11. a certain somebody, my only work around is to find an older thread within the PM and start a new message from that point
  12. Sometimes when I open the forums website my whole computer starts to crash? Especially at night time. Is this normal? Am I the only one?
  13. Not that it bothers me personally, but I thought I better just report it.
  14. I notice that lately, whenever I reload the page or go to a new one, the 502 Gateway error appears most of the time. Is this something that can be fixed or is it just something on my end?
  15. In an effort to update the community on current technical issues, and help the tech pones that keep the gears oiled for us, we are making this topic stand as a list of known issues. You will find statuses of where we are in fixing them within. I'm going to keep this topic locked, so if you see a new issue or an old issue pop back up again please make a new thread, and once verified and tech is informed this will be updated in this OP and with a new post. (Note: I'll pretty up the formatting later and will be adding older unresolved issues tomorrow). Feel free to follow this topic for updates.

  16. There seems to be a minor glitch in the system - I want to type a status, but when I click the "What's on your mind?" space, it isn't opening up.
  17. I just posted a character sheet. However, it seems like formatting is broken? Did I mess up or is it just me seeing the HTML all over the post? ty.
  18. For the last while, I've had a recurring issue with the Spoiler boxes where when I post it there's just a wall of empty space before the actual content,
  19. Is anyone else having issues where they can't move the text cursor with their keyboards arrow keys lately? As far as I can tell it's not my keyboard or PC, cuz it works just fine on any other site or text editor program, it's just the textboxes here, but it seems not to happen immediately...there's something that causes it to stop and I can't figure out what, or how to get it working again once it's stopped besides going to a new page and writing a new comment/post/message (eg. just before I posted this, I was commenting on a friend's status, worked fine initially, had problems start at some point in the middle of writing the comment, and now it's working fine again as I write this post).
  20. I tried sending my trivia solutions to Discord, but get the following message: @Jeric and @PathfinderCS, can you please fix this? Thank you.
  21. Started supporting the site again as I have the spare scratch now. The member title I selected was cringe when I initially went with it and it seems to feel more cringe as the days go by. That was a long while ago. I can't remember how I changed it in the first place and I can't seem to figure it out now. I feel a deep shame that I get worse and worse at navigating websites as I age. The 30 year old boomer meme is real.
  22. Just a announcement that the email server that supports notifications is currently down and we will let you all know when it is back up and running.
  23. So, I have been having an issue for a while now where the text box at the forums stops reacting to me pressing Enter or the Arrow keys. It seems random, as the length or content of the post that's being written doesn't seem to matter, though with Enter-key it seems to be more frequent with longer posts. I first guessed that my well used keyboard is just starting to die, but I doubt that being the case since it happens only here. (Though it seems to happen 100% of times when I'm writing a PM, but I write them so rarely that it doesn't necessary mean anything.) Refreshing the page always fixes it.
  24. i have been trying to remove [@ mentions] from my mlpf account. but it can't delete the mentions at all
  25. I can't see the "What's on your mind?" banner above the updates unless if I refresh enough, and when I click it and get redirected to my profile, I can't write down anything. i can see other people's updates and reply to them no problem, but it doesn't seem to be working on just my profile
