Pure Xbox Ideas / Problems

Description:
Hey. If you have an idea for the site or are having problems, post your feedback here. There's a thread for this at Nintendo Life, so I thought I'd make one for this site too. If the staff wants to make their own thread for this and lock this one, that's fine.

This may be intended, but there's a second bar w/ a forums link at the top. Is that a display glitch or is that intentional?

We can keep this one open, that's fine. A good idea.

The second forum bar is just a title for the forums, so its supposed to be there.

2 ideas that could improve the forums:
[list=*]
[*]Check the BBC Code help. It says for red font "(color=#FF0000)Red text(/color) produces Red text" (Note: brackets are replaced w/ parenthesis). Isn't that a little unintuitive, or is it a typo?[/*]
[*]Second, in my Minecraft thread, my designs on the 1st post take up a lot of room. Can there be a spoiler tag to hide spoilers + collapse certain sections of larger posts?[/*]
[/list]

Hi Vincent - where are you seeing that in the BBCode help? I'm looking here:- https://www.purexbox.com/forums/help.php#bbcode and I can't spy it.

Spoiler tag is a good idea - I'll put it on the list.

Look at the red font's area for how to format it. Maybe it's loading differently on my PC. What it shows is a way to use red font (it does work too), but using numbers vs the color's name is unintuitive to me. Thanks for considering the spoiler tag too. Preventing game spoils + making posts more compact is a double win.

Ah, I see what you mean. It's just showing that you can use either way - either HTML color codes, or the name of the color. It should say (color=colorname) as that would make more sense.

If I'm right, this next bit should be in green...

This is green text

That was done with (color=green) - So you can use blue, red, green - whatever you can think of, really!

Cool new look for the site. The icon for the site on the tab in my browser still shows purple for the p in Pure Xbox in case you guys forgot.
Edit: On the forums, if there's a large image, it stretches the other comments out making them hard to read on my 10" monitor. Is it possible to have an option in your profile to make all large images display smaller?

Is it possible to make the logins for Nintendo Life, Pure Xbox, & Push Square universal? It's annoying to re-enter your password on each one when you empty your browser's cache, cookies, history, etc. Also, just for a little visual improvement, if you have the time the reply button could be more smooth like the rest of the site is & have the corners rounded better / made square.

Yeah, I'll look into the browser icon. Also, looking into the forum images issue for you too - it annoys me as well

We'll see what we can do about the reply button. For the universal login though, I don't think that's going to be something we can do without potentially causing all sorts of issues. I shall bring it up the next time we're chatting about things of that nature, though!

Great. I also realized the submit & preview buttons also look a bit out of date in comparison to the site's look as well. They use the same basic design as the reply button though, so it should be easy. Good luck improving the site's look!

Anyone been getting the message you get when you log back in? I got it on NLife, & posted in a thread about it. Afterwards it stopped, but now it's happening here. Might be a glitch w/ the sites.
Edit: It seems to stop after you make a post in the forums.

Anyone noticing the "Welcome, you are now logged in" screen coming up again? This is bizarre. It's no big issue, but there's no permanent fix.

Yeah, it was happening for a while. I think it's been rectified now as it isn't happening for me anymore.

Suggestion (and please don't shoot me if this has been done already).

What about a thread for game nights? A place for people to hook-up and play a particular game?

I did have a look and couldn't see one - but I am still getting used to the layout of this site.

Captain, we are thinking the same. I dropped a note in the features thread, pop over and have a look.

We had one organized for Halo:MCC upon launch, that didn't go well (as none of us could play online).

If the interest is here for MCC get togethers I'll re-start a thread and oversee that it happens. We just need enough players and a time/day that most of us are available.

I love this idea! *scribbles down under "more things to nag at Ken about"*
