    Passing it on to the dev is exactly what I was looking for. Smile

    Looks promising.
    Feel free to reach out to me directly, just note that I'm juggling quite a bit between both sites, developing, setting up, etc, so my response time might be poor.

    It's my goal to give primer writers everything they need to have full control over the look and feel of their primer. If you're going to invest the amount of time it takes to really do a good primer for the love of the game and for the benefit of the magic community, the least I can do is make sure you have every tool you need at your disposal. If we're lacking something, at launch or even down the road, let me know.

    First of all, that is super cool. Second, will there be another "Tag Explanation Thread" to go over all the different options each tag offers? Especially if they are different than the current tags?
    Absolutely.

    There will be two:
    One for "these are the basic tags and how they work"
    Another for "This is actually everything you can do"

    I'm trying to make them as "backwards compatible" as possible, but there will definitely be some that have to change in order to best serve stronger function. For instance, [hr]black[/hr] is what we have here, but [hr] (that's it, no closing tag, etc) will work easier for the average user. We can then add width, color, size, dashed/dotted/solid, etc, to make it a real customizable line for those of us who really want to control the look and feel.

    Having worked on one such system previously
    Apologies, I didn't catch that the person asking was tech savvy. I thought it was a random request of "lets just have full html access". Sneaky

    The board software stores all posts in s9e/xml, so I would have to write a heft extension to sanitize the input and then convert it into the proper xml/s9e. Such would definitely take some time, and would definitely take a back seat to the myriad of other things we're wanting. That said, tag/property filtering is something that I want to add to the front end CMS eventually, so it's entirely possible that when it's worked out I can port it over. So hopefully down the road perhaps.

    Before that, I'm fully willing to add ALL the various tags and parameters that we need. My goal is to have the basic usage as straight forward as possible, so the average user can use them intuitively, and also have them fully customizable for the more advanced user.

    Our new [BOX] tag is a good example:


    And I'm absolutely willing to add more optional/defaulted parameters as we need.

    For [DECK]s, currently they use css columns to allow the browser to do the column breaking. That's not set in stone, and needs some more testing, but so far it's been rather good. Adding a COLUMNS parameter to specify the number of columns is doable. My only concern would be how to handle it with Mobile. I've been painstakingly careful that nothing anywhere ever makes a mobile screen have to scroll sideways. It might just have to force it back to 2 columns regardless at a certain screen size.

    Hmm. Not sure what happened.
    I know I processed them into legality.

    I processed them in a 2nd time, and they seem to be showing up fine now.
    Apologies for the issues.

    So they are closing this site but making a new one? Doesn't really make much sense, why not just work on this one?
    Our owners are shutting this site down.

    The staff and I are are creating a new home for our community. Moreso, we will have the freedom to innovate and create.

    It will take time to get there (a lot more than the 40 days I have, so we'll be launching feature-light), but we will end up with something that truly does the community justice

    For those of you who wish to continue on with our community here, the staff and I have begun building a new home. We'll announce and discuss the prospect when it is more concrete and closer to completion.

    We hope that you follow us to the new home we are currently building.
    It's only 40 days away, so it won't have everything we've planned, but we will never stop building and improving it.

    I'm pretty sure this goodluckday bad ad was made by Hydra.
    Everytime you cut off one head, two more grow back.

    I'll keep reporting them.

  • posted a message on Cannot save deck after edit
    I've been banging my head on my desk for a while trying to figure this out.

    Here's what I've come up with:
    The problem lies with "Gigantosaur" somewhere.
    I've deleted and remade the card, and that seems to work fine for any new decks.
    But it's caused some unknown issue to be persistent in your deck.

    For your deck, if we remove Gigantosaur, we can update and save everything just fine.
    If we re-add Gigantosaur, even the new version, it will save any decklist card changes, BUT it'll error out and not save any of the discussion/writeup updates.

    I think at this point, the only thing we can do is to remake the deck.
    That's definitely not ideal, but I don't see anyway to fix it as is.
    If you open up two tabs, you can hopefully copy-paste everything over.

    I apologize for this issue.
    I'm honestly perplexed as to how it's still erroring.
    I think Gigantosaur is just cursed.

    If the size of our own images works, using them is the most ideal.

    You can also save and upload images attached to a post for use.
    This is what I almost always do.
    The test forum is a wonderful place to upload your images without clogging up real posts.

    We're no longer attached to MagicCards.info, and definitely not with Scryfall.
    I'll need to remove the reference in the guideline, it was overlooked.

    I've added a tag just for you, though Grin

    Usage:
    [imgsize=width,height]url[/imgsize]
    Note the order and the comma

    Example:
    [imgsize=100,200]https://i.imgur.com/X7MQ6Ja.jpg[/imgsize]

    Result:


    Example2 (about the size you want):
    [imgsize=300,427]https://i.imgur.com/X7MQ6Ja.jpg[/imgsize]

    Result:



    We also have a [cardimg] tag for easy use if a bit smaller size is ok:

    [cardimg]Nemata, Grove Guardian[/cardimg]

    We've been having a slew of bad ad redirects. It's not just us, at all.

    It's been labeled as one of the largest ad network redirect attacks anyone has seen.
    Not only is it not just our site, it's across a multitude of ad networks.

    Please be assured, our ad team is doing everything they can to kill the bad ads as soon as they arise.

  • posted a message on "Mark All as Read" only works on main forum page.
    The drop down seems to be erroring.
    I haven't encountered this issue before.

    If you go into the forum above what you want to mark as read, you can click the bubble icon of the forum to mark everything within as read.



    I can confirm this is working fine.

    I know some of the email notifications have had bugs off and on.
    I'll prod the developers to take another look.

    (Also, irony: I didn't get a notification for this post. Apologies for the delay in response)
