    The new website looks great.
    One minor thing that has me puzzled is what the heck are Trophy Points? and how are they calculated? They don't seem to correspond to "posts" or "likes" or whatever. I've poked around the site, but I can't seem to find anything about the formula.
    So how does it work?

    I am working with the software developer. This is a great suggestion. I will ask if this can be incorporated.

    Having issues with uploaded images. Whilst I can upload an image with the 'Upload a File' button, I'm no longer getting an option to show the image as an inline or thumbnail. When I look at my post there is no image. Only an attached file is showing with no thumbnail. If you click on it then the image does open. See post 52 here.

    It's the size of the image that is causing the issue. The system won't allow for inline images that are over a certain size as well as showing an image in the thumbnail. Art Andrews will have to chime in regarding any possible change to this.

    Is the limit resolution or file size? I can refactor but it would be useful to understand the maxima.

    Max res is 10,000 x 10,000 and max file size is 10Mb.

    But that's not the threshold for the issue that we are discussing. We will need to do some tests to see where it stops allowing inline images.

    Ah. I was going to point out that the image was about 4.2Mb and no more than 6000 x 4000. The camera is a Sony A7 III. I wonder if it’s an issue with bits per pixel or embedded metadata.

    Again, about the Trophy points.

    How are they awarded? Does the site compute them with some formula? Or are they awarded by staff?
    And why don't they actively change as we make more posts and get more likes? If that is how they are figured.

    Mine hasn't budged once; and be the egotist that I am, I want to move up to the next level!

    If you click on the trophy points number under your avatar you can see which ones you've been awarded.

    Is it calmed down enough to check on the non-Animating-Avatars ? I can see my animated avatar in my account details, but it doesn't animate in the Forums.

    I see the list of awards, but what I want to know is why aren't the numbers changing since the first computation was done? There have been plenty of Posts, Likes, Quotes, etc... since November - but the points haven't changed.
    What gives?

    Did you look at the chart that TurnipyOdour posted a link to? You only get trophy points when you reach a particular threshold.

    Thresholds huh? I looked at the list of my points, but I didn't see anywhere about thresholds. Is there a counter that could tell me how close I am to the different thresholds?
    I'm not upset about this. I'm just really close to the next Trophy level, and want to keep track of how I'm progressing.

    Before the change over, there was a constant counter of Posts to inspire us to contribute. Now my number never changes.

    The only counters that I can find are for Posts and Likes. How can I find out how many of the other things I have? -like Quotes and Media Uploads?

    Are you saying that your Messages (posts) counter is not increasing?

    The link that was posted above shows you the trophy points that you received for reaching each threshold. Here is the link again...

    Likes, messages and YEARS here, are the main factors in Trophies. You can check each of those. Not really that much other stuff gets any significant points.

    From another website:

    On December 26, 2017, the Department of Justice announced that they have withdrawn the Obama-era Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking which intended to require ADA website compliance. The DOJ’s withdrawal announcement stated, “The Department will continue to assess whether specific technical standards are necessary and appropriate to assist covered entities with complying with the ADA.”

    Additionally, in February 2018, Congress passed the ADA Education and Reform Act, a bill designed to make it harder for disabled Americans to sue businesses for discrimination. Republican lawmakers who wrote and passed the bill argue that the law will help curb “frivolous” lawsuits.


    I, admittedly know very little about ADA compliance. With that being said, we will always do our best (within reason) to make the community as accessible to those with disabilities as to those without. Can we cover everything? Unlikely, but it is in our best interest to make the community as accessible as possible to anyone interested in learning more about props and costumes.

    Noticed something a little weird. The word "f l a n g e" is being censored and replaced with an asterisk in posts and messages (see: flange). As far as I know that's not a dirty word and is a pretty common technical descriptor term.

    When I google it with the word "size", the first thing that pops up is "pumps" for lactating women.

    Hmm, odd. What's funny is that when I got the email notification of your reply, the quote of my original post still had the original word rather than the asterisk.

    Good catch. Our censored wordlist is comprehensive (it came from Google). It took all I had not to find out why that one was censored, but since it has a different definition here, it has been removed from the list.

    Can the search function drop down be disabled while making a title in the Junkyard? It's rather annoying:

    This is because the word isn't permanently changed, just your view (which can be disabled) on the site.

    Awesome idea. I had the same issue last week and didn’t think to ask about it.

    Thank you Art for removing it.

    Okay, before the Animated Gifs had to be really small. But the info now says at least 200x200 pixels.
    I increased the resolution of my animated Gif and it now appears to be working.

    ---edit----

    It needs to be exactly 200x200 or it cuts off the picture.

    Am I the only one getting ads on the site, despite premium membership?
