    In keeping consistent with my online gaming presence I've developed in the last few years, if at all possible I'd like my name to be changed to Kelzam. Thanks!
    Done!
    I changed only your nickname here, like Xenphire was.

    A few changes went out that fixed several things with account issues.

    If you're still having this issue:
    Make sure "Male" or "Female" is checked when you hit save.
    Make sure you have your Country selected

    If this doesn't solve it either.
    Please let me know with your WebBrowser/version, OS/version, etc.


    (aside: I'm also more than happy to adjust someone's signature/etc for them in the mean time. Just let me know what you want)

    1v2 : 3-3 : Agree. On my draw, Polukranos + Bow give enough pressure.
    1v3 : 6-0 : The win here is hilarious. Breya's tokens fly. Yep. That's it.
    1v4 : 6-0 : I can always land Breya & Daretti.

    Aha!
    I found the issue. At least in part.

    The article links aren't aligning properly in IE11, specifically.
    (Possibly others, but nothing else I've tested has this issue).

    This makes a huge blank spot at the top, the article links don't really appear, and the area where the article links are override the buttons at the top.

    Reporting on up.

    Pulled this out into its own thread because I've gotten a couple of reports on this.

    For anyone having this issue:

    If you are on a PC hold CTRL and press F5.
    This will re-download all the web page bits, which can often fix issues like this.

    Others are a little different, depending on your OS/etc:
    Clear Cache OSX
    Clear Cache Android Device
    Clear Cache iPhone/iPad

    If this does not fix it for you, please reply here with:

    • Device
    • (PC, iPhone, etc)

    • OS & Version
    • (Windows 10, OSX 10.11, Lolipop 5.1.1, etc)

    • Browser & Version
    • (Chrome 57, Safari 10.1, Firefox 52, etc)

    • Any extensions on your browser

    This will let us isolate the problem so we can fix it Smile

    posted a message on New forum performance is horrendous
    This seems contrary to what I and others are experiencing.
    Most of us saw a strong improvement on rendering time.

    Numerically even.
    Every page load gives me a render time, and the previous layout was almost always over a second, sometimes up to three.
    Now I'm generally getting less than a quarter of a second to fully render.

    Sometimes ads can bump this, of course.
    Is this constant, or perhaps a random bad ad you're getting?

    Could this be related to something with the new system?

    posted a message on No more dark theme and narrow site layout
    The first two are best covered and discussed in this thread.

    For the third: After lots of discussion and feedback, it was felt that forcing an absolute height on the signatures was the best solution. We had previously allowed them to scroll up and down so people could have more extended signatures, but a lot of people hated that. It messed with scroll wheels, etc.

    Ideally, we'd like the signature to expand if you click a spoiler tag within it, but that isn't easy to implement with the setup we have. If we can work it out, we'll add that feature. But the forced max-height will otherwise stay in effect.

    I apologize for overlooking this at fist Frown

    This seems very odd, since it's not widespread at all.
    On the profile page where you edit the signature, hold CTRL and press F5 to refresh everything. There's a chance something just cached wrong when we updated. Then add a simple signature and hit save.

    LMK if this works or not!

    posted a message on Scrolling on Spoilers
    Because of the way it loads, the buttons aren't there for mobile.
    It's thought to be better to assume the user doesn't want to load a bunch of cards on the front, than assume they do.
    For mobile, you'll need to click the "View Full Spoiler".
    You can see the new spoiled cards in the top list, and click them individually.

    You're seeing that in your PC because you've narrowed the window enough that it's assuming you're on a mobile device. If you click the = and choose "Desktop Mode", it'll keep it acting like normal regardless of the window size.

    Ask away if I'm not clear or you still have questions Smile

    posted a message on Banlist Poll and Discussion
    Leyline/Chancellor:
    I don't see this as being degenerate. It can dominate a round that forgot to prepare for it, but all it does is put out attackers. This isn't any kind of abnormal game plan, and it's result isn't format-changing either. It falls flat to numerous methods of already-present creature stoppers (Bridge, Tabernacle, Leyline-Karakas, etc). It's a one-trick pony, and having the qualifier that any weekly contender should be able to account for it doesn't seem as restrictive as others.

    Exploration:
    Also not degenerate, although that's definitely more subjective with this one. I can say it does get very redundant. It's the Black Lotus of land rounds. I don't know if a forever-ban would be justified, but a few months away wouldn't hurt either.

    Elixir of Immortality:
    All of it's decks could be adjusted to continue to work (Wheel of Sun and Moon / Serene Remembrance), so losing it would simply take it's decks down a peg.
    I'm decidedly undecided.

    Unban:
    I'm probably in the minority, but I've never liked the "Can't do nonbasic hate". Magus of the Moon and Wasteland are strong cards, no doubt; but they're just as strong as a Chalice of the Void is against Lotus. Foil stops lotus and a million other things. I think unbanning the Nonbasic hate duo will balance itself out after a few weeks, and lead to a more diverse field.

    posted a message on Site Redesign Coming Soon!
    We will be releasing our new site design VERY soon!
    This has been in the works for some time, and it's time to preview the coming change!

    There are a few things of note:

    • This is a design update only.
    • There won't be any feature changes, etc.
      Plenty is planned, but this redesign comes first!

    • Everything is where you left it.
    • Although the look is updated, everything else will be the same.
      Same links, same spots, same way to do things.
      It's just prettier now!

    • There is one style; "Dark Skin" is going away.
    • Very few people used the Dark skin, and having two skins caused a major headache.

    • The site width is being streamlined.
    • All pages, including the forums, will be the same fixed-width.
      We had several different width layouts, and that also caused major headache.

    I've attached some preview screenshots below!

    posted a message on Preview not showing?
    Did you make sure to put a "1" in front of each of your cards?
    This is the most common cause of something like this.

    The deck script differentiates between "This is a card" (ie: "Forest") and "This is a header" (ie: "Basic Lands") is to look if it has a number before it. It's a frequent issue in EDH because the number is always 1 due to rules, but the system still needs to know the number.

    posted a message on Now that you're gone // All that remains // Is the [Spirit of EDH]
    Also, we have mods in here, so really quick, can I link to tappedout decks in my sig or on site in general? I tend to update those a lot more than opening and maintaining a thread for each of my big EDH decks, though I suppose I can do that too (despite the fact that I'm not really looking for input they're just for people to see.)
    Sig links are perfectly fine. Even solicitation-y links are generally ok as long as they're not obtuse/annoying.

    As for decks, first look in the sub forum's rules (standard, modern, whatever) if they have any rules regarding them. It'd override anything I'm saying here.

    In general, if it's just your deck, or just A deck, use [deck] tags here. Linking is an unnecessary link away that's impolite since you could easily just list the deck in thread. It's as much an issue of user consideration as anything. If it's an article you want to link to, or you're wanting to cover multiple decks, etc, linking is generally ok.

    These are just general guidelines though.
    Check in a sub's rule thread in case they have anything special.

    Starting today, you'll have the option to merge your MTGS/Curse and Twitch accounts, allowing you to easily log in to MTGS with your Twitch username and password. You'll still keep your username, post history, trade history, etc. The only thing that will change is the way you'll log in.

    Merging your accounts is completely optional, but doing so ensures that you'll be able to take advantage of the exciting features we have planned for the future. Get your PogChamp emote ready - you're going to need it.

    posted a message on CloudFlare security leak
    Instances like this are always a good reminder of "Hey, I should change my password since I haven't lately.."

    That said, while the potential scope of what could have been leaked could be a lot, "only a very small number of requests led to leaked data". This, combined with how low on the totem pole our site would be to a black hat trying to find leaked data, we don't have much of anything to worry about here on mtgs.

    What is recommended - for everyone - is to change your password to anything, anywhere, that you would deem sensitive - especially anything with financial data attached (bank login, anything attached to your 401k, etc). It's not always easy to tell what does and doesn't cross the cloudflare network, so you should be safe and just update your passwords across the board for anything that's sensitive/financial.

    posted a message on Unnecessary Functional Reprints
    Quote from necrogenesis »

    My best guess is that Precise Strike fits the mood of Kaladesh a little better than Kindled Fury does. The plane is full of relatively happy engineers, not brooding warriors full of rage. In a fight, the scientists are going to be executing calculated attacks rather than unleashing some pent up inner angst.

    Like I said, just my best guess.
    In KLD, absolutely.

    In AER, however..

    The consulate went through and confiscated many inventions and detained their inventors for ""safety reasons"". It then became apparent that Tezzeret was behind it for his own gains, which made most of the people who figured it out furious. When Pia Nalaar failed to stoke the flames of the rebellion, she enlisted her daughter's help. Chandra was able to remind them of what they lost, and she kindled their anger into an uprising. She "Kindled their Fury" (ba-dun tshh?)

    </example>

    They can make a lot of cards fit with work.
    Some are much more forced then others.
    I find this example to be fully acceptable.
    Coral Eel.. not so much. It just fails the flavor test.

    With no more core sets, the more generic cards start flowing into the block expansion sets. Wetland Sambar will be rotating out long before Kaladesh block, so Curio Vendor was created to replace it, and the used name space is almost nonexistant.

    Again, Precise Strike IS name space that could be better suited, but there's still so much left to explore it's ridiculous. Who knows how many thousands of burn cards or fiery cards we have thus far, and we still don't even have a plain old "Scorch" spell yet. Add in the ever possible Name-ian Scorch variants, etc, and there's no shortage of spell names as we traverse the multiverse.

    posted a message on Unnecessary Functional Reprints
    While I agree that sometimes the old card will work in all regards, most of the functional reprints we see are reprints with a different flavor more suited for the set.

    Strong Example: There are no "Golems" on Kaladesh, thus "Glass Golem" is unsuited for the plane.

    In the reverse example, when they get a card they're pretty sure they'll want to see in future sets regardless of the plane, they'll give it a nonspecific name. A good example is Disallow, which was given a name that could show up anywhere.

    This applies to almost all of the above: "Gryffs" are specific to innistrad, so they created a more suited one (and the other two functional reprints this card has also don't fit). No golems, as above. Chandra is a fire mage, so her Pyrohelix and Flame Lash are better suited than the lightning-magic Twin Bolt and Lightning Blast. Eel may have been able to squeeze in, but the vendor "fits in better".

    (Edit: Stopped at the AER reprints, since that was the end of the op list, initially)

    All that said, Kindled Fury could easily have replaced Precise Strike, with absolutely appropriate flavor.
    This is an instance I can't defend.
    Sometimes they do it just to do it, I guess?

    I've goldfish tested your build many times, and I've found that I prefer cutting the Visionary, Explorer, and Nissa for 3x Eternal Scourge.

    Granted, I have a personal biase against Explorer, but the no-nonsense combo of Scourge-Chain mana gets around some of cards that disrupt the traditional combo.

    That said, my tests were pure goldfish, so this is more theory then practice.

    Does the "if you do" actually check that a card was actually drawn, or just your choice to attempt that draw?

    Specific example: if you have Abundance or Maralen of the Mornsong which prevents/replaces the draw, will his "discard a card" still take effect?

    posted a message on What Color, Converted Mana Cost & Rarity Would These Strange Cards Be
    Card 1: As an enchantment with no other effects, this is definitely a 1 drop. Depending on the flavor, you could put this in White and/or Blue. Uncommon: Weak and noncomplex effect, but you don't want to see a lot of them in a draft.

    Card 2: Exiling the hands is rough. I wouldn't drop below 7cc. I could see this white and/or black. Rare or Mythic, depending on how far you push it on the casting cost.

    Card 3: This one is hard because the life makes it want to be cheap and undercosted for its effects. I definitely see it as a 2-3cc card. The life part makes it feel very white. The abilities themselves, in a vacuum, feel black-white and blue. You could really push this in multiple color directions based on the flavor you give it. Arguments for monowhite could be made, given the life restriction, but there's several multicolor options. I like 2W or GW. Definitely Rare.

    Card 4: Nifty. 1U at Common/Uncommon.

    Card 5: 1GB Rare.

    Card 6: Reverse how it goes around the table, or Topsy Turvy? I'll assume the former. This is either madness and/or sciency: Red and/or Blue. It doesn't actually have a board state impact, so it should be cheap: 3cc or less. Rare because of the effect.

    posted a message on [[Official]] Bad Advertisements Report Thread
    There's been a rash of attack ads against Android.
    They've already been able to kill the vast majority of bad ads against iphone, and they are making adjustments to hopefully kill these bad android ones as well.

    I spend a lot of my free time browsing to try and capture them to get them killed, but their ad targetting is highly sophisticated, purposefully selecting a small percentage of users.
    I am, truly, sorry about these bad ads.
    They are not acceptable to us, and work is being done to combat them.

    So far, no response or results :C
    Sorry, forgot to respond earlier, and was away all this morning.
    A full fix is being worked on, but they're still trying to pin it down.

    Try clearing all of your cookies, and see if it goes away.
    This worked for one person.

    I've pulled it out of what it was piggy backing and made a separate request to fix this.
    It's still extremely low priority, but it will eventually get fixed.

    posted a message on "My Account" Tab is Forbidden
    No, the account tab should give you access to change your email, password, etc.

    You should definitely not be forbidden.

    I don't see anything obviously wrong from my end, so I've pushed it up to the developers to see if they can figure it out.

    Apologies.

    (Note: If there's a specific setting you need changed, feel free to PM me and if it's something I can control for you, I'll change it for you in the mean time)

    Quote from TappingStones »
    If you could surgically fix it I would be very happy. I think I would botch that pretty badly
    = /
    Finally home, sorry.
    Signature is fixed.
    I also went ahead and resized the image and uploaded it here.
    Not sure on Amazon's hotlinking policy, but I figured it'd be best either way to host it here.


    Of note:
    There isn't a way to force a size on images.
    In signatures, however, the maximum height/width is automatically enforced (based on what we allow in signatures).

    Quote from TappingStones »


    I mean that I want it to show the image. This is a link that should show my book cover. I removed the size tag. Could someone please help me make this link show the visual?
    I won't be able to fix your sig for a couple hours while I'm out, but the issue is you copy pasted in HTML tags.

    Just like the forums, sigs use bbcode.

    Just change the html <A> tag to a [URL=Link url] tag, and the <img src> to a [img]book cover image url[/img] tag.

    it should look like [url=...][img]...[/img][/url] with the "..." Being the two urls of course

    posted a message on Primeval bounty and beast tokens
    No.

    The player who controls the ability that creates the token will always get the token, unless the ability specifically tells/allows them to "give" it to another player. In cases of creating tokens, absence of defining who's control the token enters the battlefield under is considered an explicit statement that the person who controls the effect gets the token.

    Although you control the opponent, and control their actions - they still control the triggered ability, and the ability explicitly gives them the token (since it doesn't state to give it someone else).

    Just a heads up that there has been a recent uptick in browser hijacking on this site. I know that's not helpful without a sample, but I've been redirected several times today to various scareware-related sites. (Currently using Chrome.)

    posted a message on Discussion of the Commander Format Philosophy
    Quote from cryogen »
    How do you measure the balance of the format?
    This is pretty much the exact way it's defined to me.
    Basically I ask myself "If I come up with a reasonable deck that I want to play, will it have a chance?"
    This basically defines which formats I play, and EDH answers this question with a Yes.

    If there are only a few decks or 1-2 archetypes that's dominating, so that you either build those or build to beat them, THAT is when things get unbalanced.

    We're trying to narrow down some of these bad ads.
    Most all of them we are getting now are mobile based.

    If you are mobile, please please list:

    Your device, OS, and browser.
    Also your City and State (or City and Country outside of US)

    This will not only let us grab the current bad ad, but also help stop them from coming up in the future.

    If you do not want to post this publicly, please feel free to PM me directly.
    (This will of course only be used to help fight the bad ads.)

    Quote from MRdown2urth »
    Are there moderators monitoring this forum?
    Yes I am.
    Everytime there's a report, I go bad-ad hunting.

    I have a customized chrome that can imitate other browsers and devises, and sit there refreshing pages over and over on each, recording network traffic until it pops up so I can gather all the necessary information that allows them to get google to pull the ad. Unfortunately, the algorithm for google's adsense takes into account previous things like history, geolocation, etc. So there have been some I can't personally grab and just have to forward blindly to hope someone elsewhere can grab them.

    I did miss responding to your "any update?" question, but I assure you I look at every bad ad report and personally try to find it to kill it.

    posted a message on Rapid Fire Refresh/Stop Loading (Chrome)
    Quote from Solmancer »
    It occurs a lot. By that I mean closing the browser completely, coming back to the site a different time, even the from-scratch reload you mention. I haven't observed consistency in ads yet, so if I see that I'll holler.

    EDIT - I killed my cache and whatnot in case it is on my side (can't imagine what specifically would cause this though). So far so good, but there is SOMETHING still causing a quick load on every page right after the main content comes in.
    One quick "oh, wait.. some things are loading again" is normal.
    That one is part of our site scripting (jquery waits for the page load, then does stuff)

    However, this shouldn't take more then a couple seconds, and should never do it over and over.

    Our scripts shouldn't be doing this, it sounds like an ad doing something it shouldn't.

    Is it ongoing?

    Hold CTRL and press F5 to redownload everything just in case.

    Let me know.

    Good afternoon!

    All of your old blogs are listed under your profile on the "articles" tab.
    You only have two pages so it shouldn't be hard to find the right one:
    http://www.mtgsalvation.com/members/22565-zasz234/articles

    As for moving them into a forum, that's not a bad idea. Not sure how technically possible it is, but we'll ask and toss the idea around. Smile
