Hi Mirlo! That looks like spam and has since been disabled. Definitely looking forward to better spam protection in Discourse however!
3. The modern design, extra features and the new forum structure take time to get use to, and I’m sure it won’t be easy for many users to depart from the current forums we all love and use today – but after completing the learning curve things start to feel much more natural and right.
Spot on, AmigoProductions, I completely agree! There’s definitely a small learning curve with any change, but definitely for something like forums that we’ve all been using for years and years. I absolutely love the Markdown feature in Discourse and it’s now hard to use the current forums (right here) without Markdown!
My tip for everyone reading this who wants to become a master at formatting posts in Discourse (aside from using the included formatting tool panel in Discourse) is to become familiar with Markdown. It’s super easy and it will help with the transition immensely. Check this out, hope it helps!
Hello all! I noticed the page load issues a couple of days ago this week also, quite frustrating. Sorry to hear about all the frustration this has been causing and please accept our apologies for the site speed.
The only thing I’ve heard is that something new was deployed that affected page load times but it has since been rolled back. Page load time should now be back to normal however. If it’s not, please open a support ticket.
I’ll share this thread internally however to the right people in case there are still some page load issues so it can continued to be monitored. Thanks again for understanding and sorry for the inconvenience this has caused.
KingDog saidHey Travis, Can we know who won these T-Shirts ?
I may be willing to go with Pat just to make sure the tshirt arrives safely
For sure! I’ll get them verified with the Studio team as soon as possible and then we’ll announce the winners! Meanwhile, stickers were mailed out today to the fab five who found the secret elephants!
