Playground: Features of this forum

With all due respect, please don’t do signatures.
I’ve seen so many forums riddled with one line posts that have signatures with huge images and texts in all colors of the rainbow. It completely messes up the ease of reading the forum.

Maybe we can compromise by improving the badge system :slight_smile:
https://meta.discourse.org/t/badges-feedback/13789/17

I already like that we are starting with a “First Edition Fairphone” badge, but we could come up with more. Annoying is that I don’t think there’s a way to make it automatic.

For now, @Marco gives badges based on your introduction.

Yes, I am like robot! @Robin it has also been discussed here: https://meta.discourse.org/t/automated-signatures/1127

and I’m afraid that the general consensus is that discourse will not offer signatures. I kind of concur, because I like how clean this place looks. But me too misses that I cannot insert .gif’s in my phpBB signature :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Maybe we can also use titles, I think you can fill one in once you are on a higher level - and it shows next to your name.

I have to agree that I hate signatures on forums. With the topic layout of discourse you’d end up scrolling from a long time to get through all posts :wink:

The absence of signature definitely gives a much cleaner feel.

@marco are titles available to other levels as it appears under the Admin section at the moment? I like the badges though :smile:

I’m convinced about not needing the signatures. You guys are quite right when saying it looks much ‘cleaner’ (without them). Thanks for the insights :slight_smile:

Ok, just found out, how to mark keys here on the forum. :smiley:

Solution is to use the <kbd>-tag.
Example: <kbd>keys</kbd>

And what does this do @Stefan?

You mean the “kbd”-Tag? E.g. you can tell someone to press Ctrl+c simultaneously. :wink:

I was trying to insert coloured text, but didn’t succeed…

Just checking if RSS feeds work for a topic…

Edit: OK so you can add “.rss” to any topic, copy the resulting url into a RSS reader and follow it through rss. Example: https://forum.fairphone.com/t/playground-features-of-this-forum/28.rss

Does anybody know why this

 - Text
  - Text
  - Text

Sometimes leads to this:

  • Text
  • Text
  • Text

and sometimes to this:

  • Text

  • Text
  • Text

?

It’s quite annoying if you want to use it more than once in a post and it looks different every time.

It might depend on what’s before the list. Cause if you don’t start with a headline, the list isn’t rendered at all:
-Text

Yeah but take a look here:

I don’t see what could possibly be different in the lists.

EDIT: Correction: Only the first sub list is rendered without the additional line break.
