I am one of those “New Folks” you were adviced to welcome friendly
So here are my first two first impressions regarding this forum:
I really like the concept you purpose with the Badges.
Of Course most Members try to collect as many as possible.
I had collected the “Autobiographer” Badge when I filled out some Stuff on the Profile Page.
Then I deleted it (Location and Name) and the Badge was gone. But now, when I fill out this Lines again (for testing purposes) the Badge wont be shown again. Maybe a Bug or smth.
Dont get me wrong, its not that I want this Badge, its just that I want to tell you guys about a possible bug
You REALLY need to implement an “image tag” button in the editing area.
This would save you a LOT of disk space, because i gues most ppl. do upload their pictures.
And as i saw the html img tag is working fine here!
(otherwise you would not see the linked pictures)
Issues or suggestions regarding the forum you can best post under the “meta”-forum. Or (if you like the forum software in general and you want to support the development, just visit their home)… @SteveAdamo or @Relyss, are our friends from Discourse still hanging around here?
Regarding pictures the forum is very clever. You can simply post the link into your thread and it will show up as a picture in the post. So no need to care about uploads.
P.S. Das Willkommen war ehrlich gemeint… wirklich .
Ahem… the picture button is the same for non-picture files: the arrow
Meaning “upload” and it lets you upload a file among the supported types. You can even paste an URL of an image and it will upload it (generating an image tag). As other people said, dragging or pasting directly the url will also work.
About the badge issue, if it’s a bug of Discourse forums it’s better to leave a message under the Meta category, and sysadmins can take a look into it.
