Ask the Mods questions about the Forums!

Recommended Posts

Hi @Heirloom,

You made an interesting and worthwhile post to ask about mod licensing issues... but that's a complex enough topic that I think it's worth a thread of its own to discuss.  So I've taken the liberty of splitting it off to its own thread under Add-on Discussions, here:

...will respond in detail there.  ;)

I don't know, that's why I was asking

We've had rapid unplanned server crashes, do those count?

But I don't recall any organized events before, aside from April Fools day stuff. 

If you have suggestions, we'll listen to ideas.

How about a rapid planned server crash? That would be quite an event.

This isn't really a good question, but how many forum users view the challenges a week?

HI. Can there be an image picker similar to Discord on the forums? And MAYBE some sort of More than 10 members version of PM

 

Ping me with an answer

No idea.  The way to answer that question would be to count up the numbers for all the threads, make a note of them, wait a week, do it again, and then see the difference.  ;)

Which, 1. would be incredibly tedious to do, and 2. you could do as well as we could.

Nope.

As we've pointed out numerous times, Squad does not write the forum software.  It's a third-party product and Squad just runs it pretty much "off the shelf", with a few minor customizable things tweaked.  So, if you have a request for "new features for the forum", you'd need to go talk to the forum software vendor, not here.  ;)

No, the forum has never had a member abducted by Kerbals. :D

What's the best way to search for my own posts in a specific thread? I can't seem to find a way to do that. I just want to make sure I don't post the same thing twice, and there are too many pages to sort through...

*sigh* that’s what I thought....

Maybe I’ll try to search for *youtube* and filter by author, since it’s one of those threads...

E: bah! Doesn’t work on embedded videos

This is the closest I managed to come.

"Search a particular thread for the word 'the', then narrow it to search by author"

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to let you just "search by author in a thread" with no search term.  I figured 'the' was common enough to work.  :)

Unfortunately, the thread I want to search is the "What Song is stuck in your head today" thread. Many posts with few if any words in there, just music vids.

That's the same thread I was asking it for...

Why does @Vanamonde post from my house??????

He was there first, so technically it's his house.

@Vanamonde is the all knowing banana. He knows everything. He sees you when you're sleeping. He knows when you're awake. He knows if you've posted something in violation of the rules. So, post only good things.

Just to confirm, yes - nothing is out of reach for the all-knowing Banana.

I found a picture of him, by the way:
