  1. As fate would have it, we've upgraded to the newest version and the dark theme is giving us some issues. Namely the header. For the moment, I've switched everything to the light theme as I work with the theme designer to remedy this. We're also looking into the quirks in linked accounts considering certain plugins that could bring in features that were nixed in earlier versions of Invision Community. I'm speaking with said plugin owners before doing such, though. Stay tuned!
  2. I'm seeing the same thing as Ranger. If it's still happening after the forum update (pending) I'll open a ticket. Hang tight.
  3. I'm sorry for not getting this through to the account switcher person yet, I'm going to pass it their way along with some other issues I've heard about it.
  4. I'll see if I can find a way to grab them and rebuild the redirect tables, I suspect it would cause the amount of them to jump from tens of thousands to several hundreds of thousands though, so I'm not sure HOW WELL or how long it'll take to generate. I'll work on the script this week.
  5. I can see about completely disabling status updates then. Apparently I can make them more viable, but it would be on the main page (see below) EDIT: So we can completely disable status updates, which I can do.
  6. Status updates are disabled by default, or at least I thought they were. I don't see anyone particularly interested in using them but we may be able to get more out of the social media aspect Sunday. I can see about maybe getting them out of everyone's views, as I said they're basically disabled for everyone unless you opt in. The calendar may be empty right now but I actually hope we can start getting something out of it soon, as one of the next phases, once the forum software is buffered out, it's the start having more community events and such. I will have to look into the details of the events, as I think the only reason anyone can create them is perhaps a permissions thing? I will need to take a closer look, but I am hoping to get more utilization out of the calendar.
  7. Slingring (and Bronypony) has been banned pending further notice, as they were actually anon122424 ban evading.
  8. I am opening a ticket with Invision community as we speak, thank you for bringing this to my attention.
  9. Can you Pm me the full url and settings of the streams that you're seeing this?
  10. My thoughts in this post are my own, and not reflective of tulpa.info. Time of creation and accusations of roleplaying Back in the day, tulpas took hundreds of hours to create, and before you even started narration, you spent significant amounts of time on form. The end result was imposition, and possession was known as metaphysical roleplaying. Actually, a lot of people were accused of roleplaying. Back in 2011-2012 parallel processing was more or less the expectation, and you would ignore the mindvoice and only listen when they were capable of auditory hallucinations or at the very least a mindvoice with that "alien feeling." Of course, anyone who put less than hundreds of hours into tulpaforcing were accused of roleplayers, so we decided to have an experiment: we did this: https://justpaste.it/1a1m The result of that meddling without any frontloading? This kind of thing: https://community.tulpa.info/topic/1705-me-and-serena-defying-faq-man-progress-report/ I think at that point it started being apparent that the personality aspect of a tulpa is directly related to narration ), not visualizing its form. With all the heartache those quicker tulpas dealt with for being accused of roleplaying were justified in their cries, as it was indeed possible for a tulpa to be created much quicker, since people were just bypassing the steps that take longer. I guess my opinion that "a tulpa can be created much more quickly" is popular, but this time period set a precedent of "no doubting: ever" which can persist to this day. I'm not sure that is healthy, but now you have a history lesson. Effort Now tulpas were being created even more quickly, and once people got to vocality they didn't seem interested in imposition or even working on form anymore-- they usually go straight to things like possession, switching, or just socializing. Should that be all we're aiming to get to? I feel like spending significantly more time on things like visualization can help develop the mind's eye in general--- meditation is good for the brain. Before I started tulpaforcing, I couldn't visualize for crap, but after several 3-hour sessions of sitting with my eyes closed and visualizing Chess, I was able to get to the point where my mind's eye was as vivid as a lucid dream. I also keep hearing how there's people in the community who had a tulpa 4-5 years ago and no longer have them. Does anyone know if those tulpas were imposed? I could be dead wrong but but I'm wondering if taking more time, effort, and attention would be a factor. This also goes into things like parallel processing: what is the correlation between tulpas who are able to "parallel process" and tulpas who are fully imposed? Don't get me wrong, I think it's good to see more tulpas out there, but how many are capable of talking in the ear 3d of the host audio style? Does it matter? Maybe not, but for me personally I would like to see it more. Nature of a Tulpas I don't know how popular of an opinion this is anymore, but I believe that a tulpa is a separate and parallel mind to their host. I don't think they're a part or aspect of the host, but a different person, and the only difference between a tulpa and a host is that the host was there first. I outlay most of my rationale for that from observation touched on in my Neuroscience lecture many years ago. Likewise I also believe that parallel processing is a thing. Yes, there's a clear limitation on working memory (e.g. ones individual consciousness), but that limitation definitely does not seem to be a limitation of the brain (which seems to process basically everything, even at a high level, before disregarding it and sending it to the conscious awareness). I can't prove this, so I'm not super vocal about it, but I'm pretty sure that argument can be supported with cognitive psychology if we play our cards right.
  11. I'll open a ticket with envision community about the Reddit embeds. I added custom CSS to limit the YouTube view, tell me what you think and suggest a better size if it doesn't work out. Right now I'm using: .ipsEmbeddedVideo iframe { max-height: 400px; max-width: 700px; } .ipsEmbeddedVideo.ipsEmbeddedVideo_limited > div, .ipsEmbeddedVideo:not( .ipsEmbeddedVideo_limited ){ padding-bottom: 400px; max-width: 60% !important; margin: auto; }
  12. I can either see about bulk editing the brackets out of the existing tags or add brackets to the new tags. It depends on what people would rather have.
  13. Until I figure out how to make this optional, I disabled visibility for birthdays on all profiles (only staff and yourself can view your birthday)
  14. With MyBB, the posts per page was tied to the user profile. Unfortunately, due to the URL structure of Invision Community's software, they don't seem to support individual posts per page. The rationale comes from Invision Community's community forums: (Source) I'm going to see if there any any plugins to perhaps turn posts per page into a per forum value, so maybe boards like Forum Games will allow it, but if I cannot, I figured the best option is to ask the community how many posts per page they would like to have. Currently it's set to 10 which was the mybb default (I actually favor 10 anyway, it's a nice base number so page 4 will have posts 40+)
