Currently, the site doesn't bring in much money, and it costs about $85 a year to keep up. Not a whole lot, but the owner of this site isn't particularly rich, so every bit helps. Also, the web designer spent a lot of time and work to implement skins, navigation layout, make the site work quick and neat, and implement the options you asked him, all this instead of doing a paid professional site. The more you support the site, the better it'll run and the more potential its future will have.
Playing the odds, I'd say it was one of mine considering it's the only discussion he's been involved in recently.
If I'm not correcting spelling or grammar errors, I have a habit of refining or rewording posts to better reflect the point I'm trying to get across. I generally only do it whilst it's the last post, because doing it after someone has already responded creates all sorts of headaches for following the thread. I've seen other people do that to specifically respond to a post someone has made below them, which is just a pain in the ass. Further refinement at that point should go into a new post. Although this doesn't preclude some crossover where someone posts whilst you're in the middle of editing though.
With regards to this particular request, I'm inclined to believe the motivation here is less than pure. I won't go into it more than that, because the last thing this board needs is to become infused with my family drama.
That being said, I think the function is hardly necessary and certainly not required for the average user. If it's not particularly easy to implement I wouldn't expect Zero to waste his already limited time on it. If it *is* an easy change, it should probably be restricted to the Mods for when the rare need arises for them to investigate something that may have otherwise been edited away. That's about the only legitimate use I can see for such a function.
@Shadowlink I agree, being able to see the edits seems to defeat most of the reasons someone would want to edit a post. Only a mod should be able to see that, in case someone tries to break the rules then edit it away.
Yeah I'm fine with the sit system as it is. If you're worried about something being changed after it's been rebutted then you can check the edit date to see if it was changed after the response was posted.
And if someone posts something and decide they shouldn't have said anything more than an hour later, I think they should be able to edit out their post.
I made a mistake when adding Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and listed the game as being for the PS4 when it is actually on PS3. Can someone please fix this? I would corret this myself if I could.
No one has helped out HOH with this yet, whats the deal? C'mon, guys.
EDIT- if YOU click on it and look in the bottom right hand corner, there isn't a "Show Edition Form" thing? Its kind of out of the way, but if it IS there, you can adjust it there yourself, just change the game in the drop down menu. Good luck, hope someone gets to you soon. -3's can't help you either, unfortunately. Sorry.
Question: Would a Negative World Discord server be a good idea? I know we have the current chat site, but I've always found it less than ideal. If you aren't familiar with Discord, it's basically a voice chat/chat program similar to something like Teamspeak, and to a lesser extent Skype. I could see it making it easier to organise to play games with people. Dunno if it's the best plan though as it's something that would most likely require some moderation as chat history can be left, but it has systems in place for that.
I'm on Discord seeking help for a Nutaku (18+ game), and its like I'm not even on there as I'm ignored so much. Unbelievable that that is their secondary support platform; I'm also ignored on their primary option. Weird.
Zero, will you please add Switch as a console to choose from in the Game Database? We'll need to be prepared for Jan and also, there are a few known games now. I was trying to add Yooka-Laylee into it. Thanks.
Let me try to remember this… I think I had fixed it before.
Carlos, I 'hacked' into your post and found that you hadn't closed some HTML. I think that's what did it last time too. I'd recommend using Andrew's Video button for Youtube going forward as it's easier not to cause this problem that way. Or just be very very careful to check the HTML before submitting. It's weird that this error causes a page error of this kind but luckily it's fixed now.
It's there in the screenshot. You merely missed the last ">" character at the end of your HTML string. This left the iFrame open and since it never closed, it causes the website to stop loading all together. Since Andrew's Edit button is under the body of each post, it was blocked from view and we couldn't normally edit it.
Just so others know too, for that YouTube button, it's the one called Video between Image and Link above the post subject. Just putting in the actual youtube link number tag in the following fashion will work.
So for this link; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ktAFA2ueFY You'd put; ~youtube=0ktAFA2ueFY~
But instead of ~ characters you use the open and closing tags of that Video button.
