    posted a message on Weird bug (link replaced with entirely different text)

    That's really very strange; are you able to reproduce it following your steps when replying to this thread? I'm unable to reproduce it here. I would guess based on the fact that I can't reproduce it that perhaps it's an issue with an extension you have running in your browser, which could be ruled out by attempting to reproduce in incognito mode, however I'm not confidence that is the cause as I can't really work out what issue could manifest itself in this way.

    posted a message on Font Options Broken
    Quote from citricsquid»

    I'm sorry for the inconvenience! This is due to a bug with our software, any font that contains a space in the name is broken, here's a list of fonts that you can use: Arial, Georgia, Helvetica, Impact, Symbol, Tahoma, Terminal, Verdana, Webdings. I don't have an ETA on when this will be fixed but the development team are aware.


    This is something we intend to fix unfortunately other things have taken priority for the development team. I'm sorry for the inconvenience :(

    posted a message on What is "Upload an Image" for?

    The "Upload an Image" button is for attaching images to your post, you can't then directly include these images in the body of your post with any of the built in functions: they display at the bottom as attachments. You can however manually include them in your post, using the url of the attachment, like so:


    1. Upload the image

    2. After the image has been uploaded right click on the thumbnail and click "Copy Link Address"

    3. Open the image embed dialog and paste the URL


    You must keep the images as attachments, as if you delete them then the image will be removed and it will no longer show in your post.


    Here's a screenshot (included using this method):

    posted a message on Forum punishes the best contributors, is kind to the worst

    The forum rules that can realistically lead to posting suspensions are the forum rules that are most important to our ethos of providing "...a safe, secure and family friendly environment for Minecraft fans of all ages to share and discover their love for Minecraft". Members who are polite and constructive are rarely, if ever, going to risk any form of posting suspension because the forum rules that they might violate (while remaining polite and constructive) are rules that we'll initially issue friendly rule reminder warnings for, which carry no points, and only members who repeatedly break these sort of rules (for example bumping, duplicate threads, necroposting) in a short period of time would gain enough points to receive posting suspensions.


    I have reviewed every posting suspension issued in August so far and every single one has been issued to a member who either broke one of the rules around being polite (flaming, profanity, inappropriate material) after having received previous warnings for that behaviour, or someone who has broken one of the other rules (bumping, advertising, duplicate threads) numerous times in a short period of time.


    There are members who have made thousands and thousands of posts without ever receiving a warning for flaming, or using profanity, as their attitude is not one that would ever lead them to behave in a way that could be considered anything but polite and constructive, and for many of those who have received a warning for that behaviour, it was the last time they ever engaged in it. Everybody can have a bad day once in a while and might say something out of character that leads to a warning, but only those who consistently come to the forum with a bad attitude towards others will ever risk being excluded from the forum for any length of time.

    posted a message on What the heck happened to the post editor?

    The post editor requires Javascript to function. You have unfortunately discovered that because of how the forum has evolved over the years (multiple software changes) that older posts are very fragile, and don't function well when it comes to the editor. Web based WYSIWYG editor technology is somewhat weak in general, it has improved leaps and bounds over the last 5 years but it's still fragile. The editor is required to post because of some clientside formatting changes that happen, you can technically access the post submission form without the editor but when you submit that post it will not render as you expect it to. The only real solution is to rewrite your post using the current editor which will mean all the formatting is compatible with the current editor. Sorry for the inconvenience :(


    The forum supports revision history so that if your post does break you can rollback using Tools > Post History, which isn't a solution but it means that you don't need to worry too much about losing your post -- just the time it'll take to fix it.

    posted a message on HTTPS on Forum and Wiki?

    Quick follow up, just noticed you also asked about the wiki. The wiki (and all gamepedia wikis) do offer full site https if you're a pro subscriber because that excludes the advertisement problem, you can learn more about it here: https://www.gamepedia.com/PRO

    posted a message on HTTPS on Forum and Wiki?

    The reason that a lot of media websites like this don't use https across the site is because of advertisements, unfortunately advertisement technology is years behind the rest of the internet in quite a few ways and by enabling https site wide we would greatly harm our ability to deliver advertisements -- which is an important part of our business.


    The pages that require security, like login and account management, are all served over https (without adverts) to provide security, and long term we hope to serve the whole site over https because we agree that level is security is best :)

    Curse Premium doesn't exist any more, but previously it gave you: advertisement free browsing, a private forum for Curse Premium members and a member title.

    Lost it again, even though my downloads this month are the highest they've ever been.



    Since this thread was created Curse Premium has been retired, you can learn more about that here: https://mods.curse.com/news/curse/52112-curse-premium-update, this means that you are no longer eligible for automatic Curse Premium based on CurseForge downloads. Over time any existing Curse Premium entitlements on this forum will expire, and members will be returned to their default Registered Member status.

    Any member that was previously eligible for free Curse Premium is welcome to contact me and I will manually subscribe their account to Advertisement Free benefits on the forum. I have done this for you already macadamia238, please let me know if you run into any issues with seeing advertisements on the forum.

    posted a message on [bug] Youtube Links ALWAYS embed

    This is a known bug, unfortunately there's no fix in the pipeline. The work around at the moment is to use a URL shortener, like bit.ly.
