I Have Been Getting It Too For A Few Weeks 
but I also thought it was maybe Australian internet... 
 
If you are on windows, try in command line:

tracert celephais.net

...and you'll see what bottleneck you have on your road to func_msgboard :)

I feel like it's a commentary on my university studies that I'm currently learning a CCNP subject and I don't really know how to use tracert properly yet.
I guess Telstra is having trouble connecting to Germany though...

If any identifying information about me has leaked with this screenshot, please don't use it to hack into my house or anything like that :( 
 
It kinda bounce between servers in Hong Kong - lol weird :D 
 
I have problem like this though: http://imgur.com/a/MJuwW

Every time I post, I get mixture of CSS/JSON and other shit, instead of proper site view.
If I refresh this, it will post reply again.
I have to go to main page and load thread again, to see my reply. 
full  width  unicode

O O H ! T H A T ' S C O O L 
 
 
Now my steam name and func_ name look the same! Please don't ban fullwidth on the site or anything like that :( 
T E S T W I T H U N I C O D E 
Trying to see how to type unicode on my phone....let's try copypasta out of this online thing...dang it. Guess we mobile folk are stuck with autocap nonsense. 
It's Impossible To Edit The News Before It's Approved 
I accidentally hit submit instead of preview on a news submission and submitted the news without any links. And I can't edit it in no way. It's kinda ridiculous that I have to submit another news to get it right.

Metlslime can you add a feature the allows to edit your own submited news before it is approved? 
 
yeah, that seems like a good idea. I'll add it to the list. 
Metl. 
Can you give us mods "Edit Post" powers for normal posts please? It would enable minor censorship on the few occasions it's required, rather than referring to you or marking as spam.

Also, but maybe trickier, a "Move Thread To GA As New Post" option would be cool. 
Can You Fix My Account :) 
Hey there,

During the recent change relating to utf-8 and whatnot, my account appears to have become broken. The username was "ma†echa" but now it changed to "ma�echa" and I am unable to log in. Can you change the username back to "ma†echa" , or if that's not possible, I guess just "matecha"? Thanks in advance and please let me know if you need any other info to proceed :) 
 
hi, sorry for the delay. I changed your name to ma†echa. 
 
Awesome, thanks!! :D 
Dear Shambler/metl. 
Could you please rename the Quoth tricks thread to something else, so the proper progs.dat tricks thread is the first search result instead? 
Done 
 
<3 
 
 
curious -- what was the search string you were using? 
"tricks" 
 
And 
I meant browser search, not func search. 
 
6 out of 10 of the chronologically latest discussion threads are marked as invalid/duplicates and closed. Can I once again suggest an approval process for discussion threads? 
 
Make that 7 now. 
How About It? 
 
Suggestion. 
Add a link to Spirit's comical file packaging standards to the Submit News page so newbies have an easier time adapting to them. 
 
those standards aren't that comical. He spent a lot of words saying a few simple rules:

1. blah.bsp should have blah.txt and be packaged inside blah.zip

2. no directories for bsp files, mod directory for mods (should also match zip name)

As for whether adding that link to the Submit News page will actually help, not sure? Do people read those instructions? I'm willing to try it.

It makes me wonder, did this problem exist back in the old days? Were there a lot of weirdly packaged maps back then too? If not, what social pressures existed to keep people in line back then? Was the guy who ran idgames2 on cdrom.com enforcing these standards? It seems like almost every map I downloaded back then followed the standards. 
I Believe 
those rules are basically related to Quake Injector util, it doesnt read rar/uppercased files etc. Just guessing 
@metlslime 
I recall there being the 8.3 file limits in the early days of Doom content, so that helped keep things tidy. Now you have what 256 characters for a filename and spaces? 
Anonymous Posting. 
Has largely increased in quantity since removing the IP displays and has not improved in quality a single iota. Please disable it altogether. 
I Agree 
that prefab thread has been a cunt magnet, and i'm not talking about the good sort 
MAGA Bitches Trump Rules Etc 
i think what we are seeing in the prefabs thread is a bunch of board regulars who have strong and controversial opinions on a quake thing and want to express those strong and possibly controversial opinions without being hounded out of this board by the usual manchildren.

but by all means stop the ability for us to do that yeah. 
Epic Post. 
Changed my mindset completely. Please ignore me metl, I want more stuff like #2267 all over the board. 
Option To Mark And Censor Post As Anon Idiocy Instead Of Spam. 
Would be fine. 
 
2 posts not shown on this page because they were anon idiocy. 
I Kind If Agree With Anon Though So What Is Happening!?!? 
 
 
If anyone actually were to get "hounded off of this board" for a Quake opinion then I would guess that their delivery was the issue.

We're talking about a video game here. Among the possible controversial opinions you'll deal with in life, the actual content of the most extreme Quake-maps-related opinion is a bee fart in a hurricane.

I mean someone can walk in here and say "hey I think hi-res normal mapped textures are pretty cool in Quake" and they are going to get their nose whacked with a newspaper a little, but "hounded off the board"? What does that even mean? Maybe if you lead with something like "anyone who doesn't agree with me is a fascist sheeple" and then double down and escalate when that goes poorly.

Anon posting has been some of the worst stuff on this board. If you don't feel like you can shitpost under your normal handle, how about: don't shitpost. I don't think that preventing anon posting will help though, because then the dedicated shitposters will just create character accounts.

Rubbish, they won't be bothered to go through all that.

Anyway, as we were saying, I think people are being really hard on Trump. If you don't want your kids to be caged, don't try to break into my country bitch. 
 
shitpost on main or gtfo, tbh.
