    Thanks for checking in!!
    Did the default font size for the edit screens get smaller during these updates, or is it just my old eyes??

    Just trying to help out.

    Hey killervp,

    I'll take a look and make sure nothing I changed last is causing it. No styling changes have been made in recent pushes but I'll check!

    Is it possible you have your browser zoomed out?

    Well the day has come. There is no place to add my payment info the my account, and it expires tomorrow. Hopefully I will not be locked out of anything until it shows a place for me to enter the info.

    I don't like this feeling....

    You should be fine Skid, based on all accounts that I have seen on the forums.

    When that happened to me, Skid, I was able to add my payment info (only after the subscription from the kickstarter ended). I was able to see everything fine, I just couldn't access Ascendent features, like editing the CSS. It was still there and in force, just unchangeable. Once I added my payment info and re-upped, full access returned and you couldn't tell that there was an interruption at all. Unless something drastic has changed in the interim (which seems exceedingly unlikely), you should be just fine.

    Yeah, I've not reactivated my Ascendancy since my reforge pledge ran up. My campaign is getting by okay anyways without it, but I'll reconsider it as I see more changes roll out. I think the only annoyance is not being able to make new forum posts, but we've found work-arounds.

    Thanks Twiggy....12 minutes and counting.

    @RyanHeck, I hear yah, however we use the forums for play-by-post...so if there was a glitch...

    Everything seems fine. I wasn't actually panicking...

    The lack of a place to enter info/details on my membership was just a little disconcerting.

    Why couldn't the screen have shown what it shows now?

    Some legacy from the kick starter benefits I guess.

    I re-upped for a year as a sign of good will and faith.

    Keep the comms flowing and I'll here.

    Looking back, around June 21st there was mention of storage locker being one week away and natural editing potentially the next week after that.

    I am used to summer messing with people's deadlines, but yes, would be nice to hear an update- been a few weeks.

    I'm also hoping for an update soon. -I'd also like to see the options and vote for the new T-Shirt.-

    EDIT: Just checked the blog to see that the deadline for submissions has been extended. -Guess I have no excuse not to make one up now!- I still didn't.
    Also, Haste 128 is up!

    Hey guys, here's an update from my end:

    New episode of Haste, got another one queue'd up as well, working on some newsletter stuff and getting things organized behind the scenes there for a better newsletter schedule, also working on a content calendar to stick to a good and consistent publishing schedule for myself.

    Also, creating an OP YouTube channel and re-creating the tutorial vids for the site since all the pre-reforge ones are now irrelevant

    Aside from that, trying to spend lots of time w/ my kiddos who are home on summer break.

    Also pushing hard to get us a new and improved forum here, one that actually functions like a modern forum, and perhaps even matches the new look and feel of the site.

    I'll ping the development guys for updates on file lockers, etc. I know we also just added Elves to the name generator just recently too.

    PS: Also been looking over and approving a lot of DST's that have been rolling in.
  • Unknown
    Hmm, odd, I don't see the option for the Elf Names in the generator on my pages - either way, good to know they should be rolling out.

    Thanks for the update, Dread! I look forward to all them exciting things. Modernised FORUM sounds particularly good.

    Haste is hanging up the Dicebag.

    Hmmm, yea, I'll admit that I don't like that. I think I essentially just seconds twigs comments on the episode.

    Hey Jerry,

    I gather that it's been a busy couple of weeks, but could we get another quick status update?

    Of course!

    Elven name gen is finished and will be pushed out on our next big update. I've got my show outlined for the final episode of Haste which is both good, and bad :(. Aside from that I've got a meeting with the guy who is the head of the Tabletop initiative for the Extra Life children's charity this year to get OP in the spotlight and hopefully raise some money for sick kids. Stretch goals are currently still under development, but I know that the file locker is at about 80%, which is what I believe is being worked on currently. I've also provided a ton of feedback to Kaleidoscope about direction for the site recently so here's to hoping that ball gets rolling soon.

    Any other questions, feel free to ask.

    Sounds good, thanks Jerry.

    P.S. - For those who haven't checked the Facebook or Twitter pages, Obsidian Portal now has a "YouTube":https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpe0g9SHUorIfCtpucv99MA.
    It has all new help videos, something I know many people have been clamoring for since the Reforge.

    Ok, seriously, this is getting beyond ridiculous. While I think that a YouTube channel is great, especially for help videos, STILL official notifications are not occurring in the site's own forums but rather just Twitter and Facebook. Come on! How hard is it to understand that communication should not be limited to the twitch-feeds of social media but should definitely ALSO include the very communication system that is actually integrated into the product that your users are using?

    Sigh.

    @DreadGazebo is a member of OP, and that is an update.
    It may not be an update on what is going on with everything we want, but it is an update.
