Due to the shift to social media and the use of the forums dropping dramatically, we have made the decision to close the forums.

The forums are now in READ ONLY mode

The gallery will be migrated to flickr

Forum upgrade

Recommended Posts

The forums are the centre of our community here at epic, so it's important to make sure they are up to date and shiny for everyone to use. 

 

We have just upgraded the forums to bring in a few nice enhancements:

 

Sharing a single post

 

You might want to share a great reply to a topic on Facebook or perhaps email a link to an interesting post to a friend. You can now do this by clicking either the post number or the little share icon to the right of the post number. This brings up a new modal window which will allow you to share just the post in a variety to ways. 

 

Editor Pasting

 

A lot of the time you find that you just want to paste plain text into the editor so you don't have to then remove formatting such as background and font colours. There is now a new option in the editor to allow you to do so. 

 

Best Answer Feature

 

This new feature allows a topic starter (in specific forums) to mark a post a the best answer. So if you have a burning question and someone posts a decent answer in the flurry of responses, then you can let everyone know which answer was the most useful to you. A small excerpt of the answer is placed at the top of the topic for easy reference and a user can instantly jump down to that answer if they wish. 

 

Editor Improvements

 

Code boxes and live previews have been improved for those times when you need to paste in some code to show to everyone. Code is automatically formatted based on your selection and line numbers added. 

There are now also live previews for both code and quoting.

 

Enjoy :)

Since the upgrade I have an issue that the website keeps reverting back to the mobile version on the iPad when I refresh the screen.

Is anyone else having this ?

EDIT:Awe, dunce, you deleted your post right at the point I realised the theme is user specific and not broswer or session specific :(

EDIT 2: Dunno what happened, but it looks to be working right now :)

Hmm nothing appears to have changed. I've recached the skin and specifically set the ipad to use the full theme. Try that.

The iphone should be using the mobile version of the skin, what is yours doing?

It is, but when I tell it to use the full version and then return to the site, it keeps going back to the mobile version.

Was it doing that before? I think that how it is *supposed* to work. There is a maintenance release to go on the forums this weekend which may or may not have a fix for it if it's not meant to happen that way.

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
