Forum bugs/issues

Hi there (or Moin).
I know the forums are quite fresh and unpolished, but I would like to point out some minor bugs/issues I encountered so you can eventually fix them:
- Add a correct HTTPS certificate for the forums. I am not comfortable to use plain http when logging in, so please add a valid certificate in the near future.
- Please check the forums with Firefox, as I see quite some icons not showing up properly. They appear like Unicode placeholders to me. I find them in the following places:
-- the links at the top, right hand side of my user name.
-- If i click on my username, right before "preferences" in the middle panel and left of "activity", "notifications", "discussions", "comments" and "inbox" on the right panel.

    I'm using the latest Firefox, and those icons look fine to me. Perhaps local settings on your browser?

    I agree with HTTPS as well.

    HTTPS is a _must_ have especially for login.

    When in the Forum, allow the red 'Forum' link in the Navigation at the top to link to the Forum Home page. I keep trying to use it to return to the home but can't :(

    Have a Forum FAQ as well as an FAQ for the game.

    Edited to add: I noticed in the discussions there is an 'new' posts/replies icon, I think this is useful, but I think a counter would be more useful, I think this would also be good to have on the Categories page as well.

    Edit no 2 to add: the 'like' link in posts isn't displaying (in Firefox on a mac) unless the post is hovered over by the mouse.

    The "Like" link is that way for Win10/Chrome too.

    I'll let the team know! Thank you for the feedback.

    Adding another call for a proper (NOT self-signed) SSL certificate. I'm actually surprised that the forums went live without it.

    Also agreeing with the request to allow the "Forums" link in the navigation bar to bring you back up to the root level of the forum structure, from whatever sub forum (Gameworld/Community/Off Topic/etc) you are in.

    On my browser the "quotes" are in quite big letters, larger (about double) than the original letter size of the posts....
    Should be just reverse, make the size of the quotes half in height compared to the comments/posts.

    This would be really helpful. At the moment the link is just disabled while you are anywhere on the forum.

    Moin Moin.

    As far as I can see on style sheet file is missing.

    I can confirm that the icons are not shown under Firefox/Windows.
    It seems that the font file is not loaded.

    The use of emotion is not working when using the smartphone. An image is attached.

    Regards

    Elte

    Oh also, the star, top right of a thread, which claims it will bookmark things on the hover-text, does not seem to do anything. Maybe this is a lack of button feedback, or maybe it genuinely does nothing?

    Edit: Ok, apparently it does do something. Maybe it should be edited so that it stays the same blue as it goes when hovered over, while bookmarked, so that you know if the thread is bookmarked or not.

    Hey, the title of the forum home page (forum.everspace-game.com) just reads "FORUM" as title, with no mention of Everspace.
  • WoonaWoona Kickstarter Alpha Backer ES1, Space Optimizr Posts: 22
    My only complaint so far is that once you've switch to desktop view there is no way to switch back to mobile view. It's not a huge problem, but both have uses and I'd like to have the functionality of desktop and then switch to the form factor of mobile without having to sign out and close the page :P

    Just to keep you guys up to date, we are actively monitoring the forum bugs and issues and squishing them as fast as possible. This week we should have proper SSL in place, as well as a number of other fixes. Stay tuned for now.

    Good to know, we definitely appreciate the official feedback.

    Another niggling problem I have noted is that profile pages do not update properly when accessed. At the time of writing I have 33[+1] forum posts, and have logged in countless times, and yet my profile only shows to me that I have 25 forum posts, have logged in only once, and that was yesterday.

    I was looking for a post on this forum that would suggest this. Please implement this. I'm so used to navigating a site by clicking on buttons like these.

    the thing I want is the ability to edit top lvl threads after the 1 hour. I'm doing a couple of posts that do regular updates and really could use the ability to actually update the primary post. please..

    pretty please????

    may seem a tiny thing but on the steam version can we get cloud support? means i can play on my tablet and then carry on, on my main pc

    confirmed. Have the same issue. Using Chrome.
  • WeatherstationWeatherstation Kickstarter Alpha Backer ES1, Space Pro Posts: 43
    @Kurzon Morris isn't the cloud support available on every steam game?
  • Templar3lfTemplar3lf Kickstarter Beta Backer ES1, Space Dog Posts: 54
    There seems to be a Steam category with cloud support, or at least a tag, suggesting that this is not the case @Weatherstation, but I may be wrong.
  • Templar3lfTemplar3lf Kickstarter Beta Backer ES1, Space Dog Posts: 54
    Another issue seems to be, on the latest Desktop Chrome when editing a post, the quick HTML buttons (Weblink, formatting, etc) don't seem to work. I cannot test on another browser at this time.
  • Kurzon MorrisKurzon Morris Kickstarter Backer ES1, Space Cat Posts: 73

    nope and yup. Its available to all developers and games but not every game supports it for saves. If you go to the page of a game and look at the list of important features like singleplayer and controller support etc... on many games, Including Galaxy on fire 2 HD there is no mention of supporting the cloud save. So really hope they impliment it

    I'll look into it ;)
  • WeatherstationWeatherstation Kickstarter Alpha Backer ES1, Space Pro Posts: 43
    Also is it normal that there is a "reported post" section? ... maybe it would be better to hide it ;)
  • Templar3lfTemplar3lf Kickstarter Beta Backer ES1, Space Dog Posts: 54
    @Weatherstation that seems to have been mentioned some time ago, or at least I remember it being mentioned, and I swear it was fixed then. Maybe they just removed it from the quicklinks bar on the right.

    Actually it is still on the quicklinks bar ^^

    It would be nice, if I could see when someone quotes one of my posts .... I can only see if someone mentions me with @Weatherstation ...

    Morning everyone.

    Got a problem with quoting comments today.

    When clicking on the quote link, the word "null" is inserted instead of the quoted comment.
    Looks like a problem with JavaScript.

    There could be much more living traffic on the site, if we could use our OWN self generated names for the login procedure, rather than this awkward "ES_1234567" login name.
    This is, because when I am out of home and stay idle at the hotel, airport etc., my OWN forum name I do always remember, but this intergalactical SSN "ES_121212" I never remember.
    Thus I just quit logging in..... too annoying....

    This is almost the only forum I have encountered, where a user has to handle all these multiple names for just one account.... :#
