Be sure to read and follow the guidelines for our forums.

Oct 1, 2021 3:09 pm
Whilst Keleth works on version 2, we've been looking at making some changes to v1. The changes have been discussed and implemented by representatives of the Gamers' Plane community (Adam, Antiproduct, bowlofspinach, Harrigan, Qralloq, Skeptical_stun, vagueGM) under the supervision of Keleth.

Discussions are still ongoing, but it's probably time to open this up for community feedback. We hope to have a test site before these changes go live, but so the changes don't take you by surprise here's a list of the new stuff we're looking at.
[ +- ] Responsive design for mobile support
[ +- ] Homepage redesign
[ +- ] Games linked to their tavern posts
[ +- ] Abilities section
[ +- ] Abilities, snippets, spells and abilities character sheet integration
[ +- ] GM character sheets with integration
[ +- ] Post as NPC
Other changes and fixes

* View a thread as a single page
* Upload images directly from the clipboard
* Use notes on character sheets
* Access public forums from game details
* Top menus show more entries
* Dice rolls available on creating a thread
* Frames removed from profile pictures
* More features can be performed by secondary GM
* GMs can turn off player character sheet integration
* "Unread" moved to the left, now reads "Mark as unread"
* Dice back on homepage in dark mode - now always clickable to last unread post
* Code blocks remove extra lines
* Top-level subforum headers now on the left
* Remind new users to post in introductions (for two weeks or until they have)
* Characters bottom menu redesign with selecting a name to posting box
* GMs can access the advanced posting page of locked threads
* Advanced Rules Definitions translates curly quotes
* Better support for not closing the post on a HTML angle bracket

The code is checked in, but the scale of the changes for making mobile-friendly pages means it needs to go through a testing phase using real data.

The plan is:

1. Keleth to set up a test site using the checked-in code.
2. Testing phase. Feedback and changes.
3. Deployment to live.

*budum tish* (I guess that's the onomatopoeia for a rimshot gag?)

Anyway, I think Koldik has some stuff he gets to throw into his legend.
