Hey Hog,

All the anti spam measures possible are already in place so literally nothing we can do when a really smart one breaks through the security.

Will have another look at some extra precautions beyond recaptcha which is already incredibly strong and sufficient vs most bots.

Something that never fails is, instead of using reCaptcha (or as an addition), creating a custom question for the users to answer. For example: “What World of Warcraft zone is this forum named after?”. I bet any bot won't be able to go through the registration form unless it's specifically made for this forum.

Very nice idea, will consider adding this for user registration in next patch.

Althogh see my post re: the recent attacks on main forum - basically I disabled something and forgot about it hence the registrations lol.

The security was already satisfactory until i messed up!

Description: The forum does not support retina displays.
OS: macOS 10.14.3
Browser: Safari 12.0.3
Screenshot:

SpoilerShow
Images in the forum are uploaded using a single sprite, which is designed for regular x1 displays. This means that, in x2 displays (retina), there would be 4px where in regular displays there's only 1px, so images are zoomed to fill more pixels and, thus, making them look blurred. In this article there's an easy way to fix it.

Hey Flerex,

Thanks for the suggestion. It’s something I have considered before but the work would be immense. When I made up all the art assets I did them in raster format meaning that I can’t enlarge them to retina dimensions without also blurring and distorting them.

So if I wanted to implement retina support I would have to completely repaint every art asset at those dimensions which is too much for right now anyway.

Have added it to ‘postponed ideas’ list for the future when I run out of other ideas :razz:

Large threads seem to cause the number to bump down (but not when your closer to the last page).

I just became an Alliance Shaman.

May not be a big deal. Was kind of weird how I got it, and may not be repeatable for anyone else. This was th first time I edited the profile since you added the race options.

Went in thinking about adding my race. Clicked the race. Saw the shaman option go dark. Clicked back to Alliance. Clicked shaman I think? Or it was already clicked? Anyway it was clicked and darkened somehow (late here). Hit submit. Profile came up as being Alliance without a class. Went back to selection page. Shaman wasn’t darkened anymore. Selected shaman. Submitted. Now am an Alliance Shaman.

And I am keeping it.

A short description of the issue: When previewing text in the full editor, if a line break it required it will be made no matter. I saw it split "out" into "ou-*linebreak*-t. The whole word should instead be moved to the next line, and larger words should be split where it makes sense.
Your OS and browser: Windows 10, Chrome

Yeah, it's minor and subtle. It's still a thing, though.

Ah okay, thanks. I've now based on Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) so that people can apply their timezone to get a super accurate time. For you just add an hour. The hours and minutes will display when the countdown reaches less than 1 day.

Okay guess this is a new bug then :smile: Have you tried deleting the banner image first, then uploading the new one?

UPDATE: When i went to my profile a few minutes ago the banner changed, this is 24~ hours since the change. So my issue is resolved. but it might still be a bug! :)

@Ava okay not a bug then - basically your browser’s cache still had the old image stored so it didn’t show the new one until the cache was cleared.

Got a PHP error from all of this. Also, holy hell turn off PHP debug messages.

Yikes.
