Dangit, I can’t use custom emojis in the text field for the tag. :frowning: Oh but I can use regular ones. Hmm

This is how the emoji in the tag is rendered on my computer:

Weird. Try refreshing/clearing cache.

Clicking the tag also only shows one post(the first one) when clearly dev responses in this thread are far more then one.

Yeah, that’s how the plugin works. It’s not quite the functionality I want, but we’ve requested the ability to be taken to at least the first post in a topic that’s marked as an official reply. It’s not certain this will be added, but at least it’s out there. Right now the way we have it set up is that we can manually mark a post we make as an ‘official reply’ that will then add the tag to a topic.

Yeah, I think that’s hard-coded into the plugin we’re using from Discourse. It’s a modified version of Discourse’s own ‘Category Experts’ plugin so I think the search field is not something we can change. However, I just did hear back that we may be able to get an option to have the Response icon take you within the thread instead to the search - should be completed in a few weeks.

That fixed it. It looks like this now:

The symbol will probably undergo some more changes/iterations as we finesse and nitpick, by the way.

So, uh, this is going to be a short rant, so feel free to remove it, but I just have to get this off my chest.

I’ve been watching bug reports pop up in the PC Discussion section instead of PC Bug Reports section, and I’m flabbergasted. How are people this bad at following even the simplest visual cues? I mean, it’s calledBug Reports”, and it even has this little insect glyph next to it! Does HTML need to reintroduce the <blink> and <marquee> tags?

Rant over.

We’ve had Exiles bug reports end up in the Secret World Legends, Moons of Madness, and The Longest Journey categories. We’re still not sure how that happens, but it goes to show you that no matter what you do, it’s never 100% effective and edge cases of user confusion still occur.

Yeah, I get it. And it’s not like I haven’t seen users do things like that before. It’s just that this was the safest place for me to vent that particular frustration in front of a wider audience, without it coming back to haunt me in some important future scenario :smiley:

Sorry about that.

Hah, nah, I hear ya. It’s relevant to the topic anyway since this is basically the user experience thread. :slight_smile:

Okay, thanks

Hi!!! So far I love the little flag and the pun it creates. The exclamation point and its smooth glow is nice, even if it is misbehaving on mouse hover a bit, and having something to indicate a developer response when browsing is always useful! :>

New badge looks awesome! :smiley:

Turns out it’s not just Opera and it was an issue with a :hover selector. Should be fixed/not possible to cause the flickering effect now.
