Hey, I've received a couple of PM's today and none of them are formatted properly ie the username of the avatar of the person is displayed under the message themself. Is this delibrate? Looks like this:

Seriously. Read your role PM before playing.
I am sorry if you have to prod me, I have absolutely no concept of time.

My prefered pronoun set is "cie/cir/cirs[elf]" but they is more than acceptable.

Thanks, Haylen.

This is already being discussed. It is an unforeseen side effect of some recent changes.

We are currently deciding whether it would be better to fix it back to the way it was, or to do away with the avatar/other info altogether, leaving more horizontal space for the PM itself. After all, it already shows the From: and To: at the top of the PM, and you don't really need to see the avatar. To PM the person, just click Reply or Quote. It wouldn't really affect anything negatively to do away with that misplaced info card altogether and leave more room for the PM itself.

Plus, can I get an Amen for no more cut off role PM images? :)

There's no earthly reason that page should have changed; I didn't even edit the PMs screens last night. Nonetheless, as RC says it's being looked into.

Good news is: I fixed PMs.

Bad news is: mafSepia got nuked in the process. Working on backups now...

In other news, I note that in a PM, the infocard shows a poster's number of posts, while that info is not in a game thread.

I vote to include number-of-posts in the game thread infocard. (If it's not a huge deal.)
....what?

Hmmm. That doesn't seem like a big deal to me. I think it might be because I've seen that as the default on other forums. I'm not sure.
