Somehow I fit all those characters in before, but then it said I had exceeded the character limit and truncated the message (like the limit had been decreased, maybe before the switch)

I forgot how text sizes were before -- I see now the bbcode uses points, but somehow a lot of existing messages got transformed to spammy sizes -- is there a legacy-to-current translation you can modify to fix this automatically, or will we have to manually fix existing font-scale posts?

e.g.
http://72dpiarmy.supersanctuary.net/index.php?topic=75.0
http://72dpiarmy.supersanctuary.net/index.php?topic=10456.0

edit:looks like it might be too late -- it seems to have converted them all to 99px (not points) in existing posts.

append:spoilers tags broken with switch to spoiler tag, also adds weird code after. Looks like just a lot of stuff is different from the switch.

Looks just as good if not better than the old forums. Just wondering, is the coding for the site Java, HTML5 or something else?

Ever tried Sauerbraten? No game in the world has beaten it yet. Only one that has come close is Legend of Zelda.

Super Mario War v1.8 Beta 2 FTW.

Sorry for necroposting, but one feature I would like in this forum is the ability to embed objects, such as Flash Player and YouTube videos. I know the forum has been basically dead for a few years, but I thought the embed feature would help liven it up at least a little bit.

Embedded regular flash files is pretty much never going to happen. I doubt it'd help the inactivity regardless, because you need to have active users to actually embed videos.

Sadly, I don't think anything bar a sudden new release of the game with networking is going to liven the place back up. We'll see what happens whenever fluffypillow finishes up their work.
