Peeking in

Hi,

I stumbled upon here briefly and thought it looked interesting. It looks a little quiet lately, but that is alright. I come from a forum that slowly is reaching an odd sort of sunset. So greetings to you all. I see there are specific markups for roleplaying, which is rather intriguing.

Anyway, feel free to ask me about interests or whatever because otherwise, I am a boring creature who doesn't have much to say.

Be surprised how many don't read the markup guide when hot linking to sites outside of antilia.

That being said, your avatar reminds me this little music animation...

I always see that around from time to time. I heard it was a disappointing movie, but it's an amusing animation.

Who are you though and why do you mallet the opposition. That seems like something a guy like Trump would do or whatever. :P

@Sly, as far as I can tell, I'm the only one who messed up hotlinks to elsewhere here in the last few days (or even within the past month, I'm not looking further than that). While it's possible you're hinting about other people, it would be my preference that if you have feedback about me you would send it directly to me, or if I made an error, correct me where ever I made that error so I might improve. I'm not sure how to write this with a positive spin, so I apologize if it comes off as harsh.

I guess the irony of this is that I cannot send this MORE directly to you either; I'm getting login errors whenever I try to use the site's messaging functions. Sorry for going off-topic folks, I have no recourse.

The syntax for markup stuff has been a pet peeve of mine too. I would say I did read the markup guide, or at least what I felt was relevant parts of it, but forgot there was a difference between syntax for internal and external links and figured it would be able to figure out the HTTP part like modern browsers. Even once I realized my mistake, the "edit" button on my comment was gone too (and the edit link I saved ALSO returned login errors! Nooooo)

EDIT: odd thought, I'm now wondering if it's possible to change that syntax so that it does not recognize regular URLs as page names. I do see some pages have periods (such as Friends.Social and Forums.Topic), but the variety of pages using that format is probably short.

The forums work a little differently for me as I'm a mod/admin, so I haven't observed this problem before. As far as I know, the forums only allow private messages to people on your friends list, to prevent spamming and other unwanted messages. It seems like bad design if you're getting the login screen trying to message someone else, however. Where on the page are you seeing a link to message a user that isn't a friend? (I thought all "message this user" links were set to only be visible when it's allowed.)

I fixed your links in your post regarding web comics... I'll have to think about how I can detect internal from external links without the http. (And I know https is still broken entirely.)

I'm seeing the "Send Message" link in people's profile pages, in the "Interact with Playername" section on the right. If you'd like screenshots I can grab some

EDIT: Yea, seeing it on every profile I look at, even profiles of people I've never even heard of

Ok thanks, I'll add that to our bug tracker so it gets fixed next time I do a pass on the website.

You're not the first nor directed at you (another person did not know how to hotlink either yet gave a link in the same thread), it has happened before hand many times over, despite the site tends to be quiet.
