    Thanks folks, keep them coming! I am applying for the open position, and with your support, I can help get Obsidian Portal back to an Ennie worthy site! All support for myself making a real difference on the inside would be truly appreciated!

    Best of luck Killervp!

    I would say you were the VP for the position, but... I can't jokes right now.

    Oh how I would love to see us get back to Ennie levels. Might give me a reason to make the trip out to Gencon this or next year.

    1. Forums optional private/public.
    2. Cant' edit recent forum posts without work around (add a new post with one word, delete, and then you can edit the prior post).
    3. Inserting item pages like you can wiki pages.

    KillerVP, it doesn't always happen but sometimes I will change some CSS and when I click "Save" it kicks it back to before I edited it saying that I can only use CSS on the site. Thing is that I was only using CSS. This has happened around 3 or 4 different times. Eventually I would get it to work but usually the next day or something. I figured it was just code-fatigue with my eyes going cross or something. But then I heard that others were facing the same issue. Which is what I figured "CSS Issues" was referring to.

    Really need more people to list their 3 most important currently broken parts of OP!

    Yeah, I'd agree that the embedded videos issue is still the #1 concern.

    Map improvements would be my #2, for totally personal reasons. I'd love to see the square map requirement removed, the zoom capabilities improved, and the customizable flags that were (I believe) supposed to be included in the Reforge. And while we're at it on the maps, I don't know how difficult this might be but I'd love to have the option to make a map GM-only. I was mildly disappointed to discover that this isn't currently available.

    I don't really have a third complaint at this time.

    It's not exactly a complaint but it would be really nice if you could update images instead of just adding new ones. Now if I make any changes I have to upload the new image and then find the new URL and then change all the CSS to match the new one. Be nice to just select an image and upload an update.

    I'd still like to see an option where the End Time isn't a required field when setting up a calendar event. It makes sense to leave it for those groups that want to set a specific end time, but for my group we all play until we're tired of playing (or fall asleep at the table).

    Thanks folks! Please keep adding them, preferably, as stated previously, on things that are broken which need fixing. Presenting these at a meeting in just over 24 hours, at least the fixes that are needed in priority order.

    1. I would like to be able to restore the backup xml, so if a mistake is made that seriously damaged the site, the site could be restored to a previous way. As it is now, there are a few things I am concerned about trying due to no restoring.
    2. Email issues are sporadic for me but still would like to see them fixed.
    3. Have the backup also backup all images in the zip file.

    1. Restoring backup xml; before joeschmoe998 mentioned it, I'd not given it much thought -- but this is key. I like that I can make a backup. Having the backup file splitter hosted on OP (giving full credit to its creator, and linked to the backup generator) would be a very convenient to have.
    2. Better image management (why can't I access the character portraits through the main image editor and vice versa? Access images from other sites with me as a gm/admin. Plot down a url instead of an image using the image management tool. Resizeable interface window. etc..)
    3. Fix the link at the bottom of the forum posts to a valid page listing the redpath textile formatting information. It's a very handy link and it sucks that it's still broken.

    Well, what happened in the meeting?

    BTW, I would still like to be able to restore backups :-)

    Embedded videos are showing up in my wiki - is this the result of a deliberate action / a permanent fix, or is it just another case of videos temporarily coming back for no known reason?

    and... embedded videos are gone... again

    never got any word on if this was the result of intentional attempt to fix the issue or is something that's just happening

    Well, Tuesday would be the end of "Early Next Week" in my opinion so here's to hoping there's something to be seen.

    is it just me or does instances in wiki pages of the character ~ (squiggly horizontal line dash) turn into - (straight horizontal line dash) at different times? Asking here because the most re-appearance of squiggly line dashes in my wiki and it's disappearance seemed to coincide with the reappearance and disappearance of the video embeds...
