Got that alert as well. Let us know if Rainbow got hers..
I got your tag.
@Rainbow Knight Star
I always put the name right next to the @ for the tag to work
If done correctly, a list should pop down. though I see it still pops down if there is no space.. hmm Maybe the spacing has something to do with it? Or not?
I'm not using Rich text, because it is really hard to use. When I do tags, I write out = and USER. I wonder if tags only work in Rich Text..
What is hard about using Rich text?
and btw I didn't get the tag because the first letter is lowercase
It doesn't appear that the alert is properly generated when not using rich text.
So, it doesn't matter whether or not I use Rich Text in tagging, unless I do the shortcut, which only works in Rich Text, correct?
Apparently so. I did not receive an alert for that tag.
I'm using Rich Text now. How do I do the shortcut tag?
Try typing the @ sign plus the username, making sure there is a space before any additional text.
@Grimby Did you get this tag?
Thanks for the help. Just one more question. If I tag after text using this wonderful shortcut, after the last name, do I need to space if I don't plan on adding any text after the tags?
Nope, it's just a precaution in case you add any additional text after the tag. Some users have reported that their tags didn't work if they added things like commas immediately after a tag. I honestly don't know if that's true, but I like to make sure I add a space just in case.
Long story short: Had issues today with my AdBlock Plus, so I uninstalled it & installed the regular AdBlock, which has been working fine for me so far... and an added bonus is that now I'm able to block those ridiculous looking gray identifier tags ('game host', 'mod', etc...). Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice.
Q: How come I wasn't able to do that before with AdBlock Plus?
Because AdBlock Plus is ironically less sophisticated than AdBlock.
Only been jumping in here sporadically since the relaunch...so I went to my post history to see where I had left off...and the post history wasn't accurate...it claimed my last post was in September...except I recalled posting in late October (when Disney bought out GL)...and I found those posts...they haven't been deleted or moved or anything.
Just a glitch I'm sure y'all are well aware of.
Now I'll post this and hurry back over to see if this posts to my history...
Edit: And it did, so perhaps the glitch was fixed already.
Can you link to one of the posts that isn't showing up in the post history? I know we had some board issues when things first went live for regular users.
Starting at post #212 ( I like that feature, the post counter for the thread...very nice!)
Well it was post on October 30th...
maybe it was congestion from the traffic caused by the news that day...I know it's why I logged in
Any chance we could put a countdown on the boards for the number of days left until Episode VII comes out? I remember there being one for ROTS. I don't remember where exactly it was but it's obviously been awhile.
Perhaps when we know the exact dates.
Will we ever get back the drop-down page-number menu? It's so much better in long threads...
@Grimby - he's right. If you look at the post history in his profile there's a gap between Sep 4 and his post last Thursday here in Comms. But there are at least two posts from Oct 30 in the thread he linked to.
A valid point
