You might be placing the mouse too closely to the LOGOUT function tag. I've done it myself a few times...

If an of-topic forum was included it should probably be a "General fantasy and Gaming" version. A totally open off-topic forum is often begging for arguments and lingering bad feelings from what I have seen on a couple of other sites and would probably need heavy moderation to keep the friendly tone Candlekeep has had until now. But it would be nice to be able to go a bit on the side of the Realms from time to time.

Personally, I would not include an "off-topic" shelf. One of the things that I like about Candlekeep is that is is focused on the Realms (and, to some extent, on D&D in general). It's about the only forum that I visit on a regular basis. The reason? Just check the level of discourse on most general forums.

Plus, and no offense to the scribes here, I think that entering an off-topic shelf leads anger, anger leads to hatred, hatred leads to the dark side. We FR fans already have enough to split the ranks (1E, 2E, 3E, 4E), let's not add a couple reasons more? There are other fora aplenty where anything can be discussed, ranging from Battletech to general discussions relating to organic solid waste of male bovine origine, but there's only one Candlekeep.

I placed it as far from LOGOUT function as possible and the page shows that it tries to get to the needed page yet it logs out.

Hmmm, that doesn't sound right. Which browser are you using?

It might. Can you use any others -- like Firefox or Internet Explorer -- to experiment and see whether the same problems occur?

I tried now. The bug works on Members and Private messages. It is the same with Internet explorer and Firefox. Don't have any other.

As far as I tried, yes. Did anyone have something similar?

I can't speak for every scribe, but I've asked around privately and through alternate Instant Messaging discussions elsewhere. So far, it looks to be only a problem on your end.

...

As an aside, Sill, have you upgraded your browsers with the latest versions? This might be a problem with older browsers accessing the site.

It asks for no update, so I guess it is upgraded enough. Just which browser you normally use?

Usually? That would be SageBrowser.

Though I sometimes also use Firefox, because SageBrowser has a perverse tendency [probably as a result of my own unintentional coding errors] to dislike accessing some websites.

I would like to see storage for more Inbox PMs.....I loathe deleting old PMs, full of goodies when I "approach" my limit. Especialy since my Outbox stretches back into the ethers....chock full of scrolls!

Actually, I thought we'd already increased the size of the storage Inbox for PMs. Heh. I'll have to look into that.

How many PMs does your Inbox hold at the moment, RW?

20....I think you get warned at 17 that your are close.

Curious. My Inbox has significantly more than 20 messages. And I'm fairly certain that Alaundo increased the Inbox size a few years back, after previous scribes began querying the limited Inbox size.

Again, I'll have to look into this.

I too had 21 message and it said that I cannot send any PM until I will not clear the box. Must be you can get as much as you can, but to answer you must clear the inbox.

I would like to see some notification beisde or under a scribes name(within scrolls) that denoted they are logged in, so as to see if someone your replying to is currently "here" without checking the main forum page.

It's not exactly the same thing, but the "ACTIVE USERS" function at the bottom of the page, serves a similar purpose. It notes which scribes are currently active, and what they are doing at the time the page is loaded up.

Some "when was the scribe last active" information underneath "Total Posts:" when you view a scribe's profile. This would help see when/when not scribes last visited here when waiting for PMs, wondering why a Sage of Realmslore hasn't replied, etc.

I am a sexy, shoeless god of war!

The Sellplague began, for all intents and purposes, in the dominions of the Corporation. Greed murdered Good Design, unraveling common sense in the cosmos and destroying her dominion. At the same time, Sales Fears and Warcraft Envy happened into alignment. This cataclysmic coincidence led to upheaval, shaking apart the primeval order, opening up holes in wallets, and reshaping everything...

The only real option for eradicating our nuisance population of gremlins is to completely restructure these halls and shift them, slightly, out-of-synch with the surrounding temporal Prime.

[In other words, what we intend to do with Candlekeep 2.]
