    multiple times today, i've been logged out after refreshing kintsugi. seems to be after i've left the site open in a tab for a bit, because just refreshing over and over doesn't do it.

    Mobile version of the site lacks a "back to top" button for me.

    if there's some backend reason this wouldn't work/is undesirable, that's fine, but would it be possible to set kintsugi up on tapatalk? i'm on two other xenforo based forums, and tapatalk provides a mobile experience for them, so i know it can be done, although idk how difficult/what hoops need to be jumped through to set up that connectivity

    i'm just rarely on desktop anymore (current computer is going the way of the dinosaurs and i'm not real interested in getting a new one just yet), and while kintsugi is one of the better websites i've had to access through a mobile browser, tapatalk would make some things easier for me

    is there no way to stop xenforo highlighting new posts in threads by people I have on ignore? like, I have them on ignore for a reason, and even if their post content is hidden by default to me, it's still irritating to automatically click to read new posts in a thread and see it's posted by them

    this may very well be a My Device thing but it's only happening for kintsu, SO:
    for some reason I keep getting kicked out of my account on mobile (firefox, app is up-to-date), I assume whenever my session times out if I've been in another tab too long (despite having clicked 'remember me'). when I try to log back in I get stuck in an endless "you need to accept cookies to log in" loop. I click 'accept cookies,' the pop-up vanishes, I re-enter my login info... "you need to accept cookies to log in." :| Clearing my cache worked the first time, but hasn't since. desktop firefox works perfectly fine, so I don't know if it's the firefox app, my phone, or something with kintsu or xenforo.

    I'm using the Firefox app and haven't been experiencing what's happened to you, so I think we can rule that one out.

    afaik it has to do with kint's version of xenforo being outdated as fuck, it's been doing all kinds of weird shit as a result (see also: had to have a friend ask if one of my IPs was being discouraged because of my inability to load this site from said IP but not from any other IP, and seebs saying yeah no thats xenforo for you)

    you know how we're able to embed videos into posts? is there any way that we could add the ability to be able to embed Spotify songs into posts as well? i know phpBB is able to do it with an additional extension but i'm not sure to what extent xenforo is able to as well

    I´m sure it´s been brought up before but is it technologically possible to let folks change their own names?
    I want to reuse some old subaccounts for RP purposes so I don´t have to keep making more but i don´t wanna bother the mods all the time.

    I think the whole subaccount system is going to need to change soonish in order to keep the forum software updated? I know Seebs has been putting it off for the exact reason that it will change things, requiring consultation and figuring things out and giving people reasonable notice before any kind of rollout.

    Short answer: Maybe!

    has anyone else had trouble typing on this site on mobile? it only happens on this site for me. the whole thing kind of glitches out - it's kind of like the site is lagging behind my inputs, or something? I can't hit enter, because when I do the new paragraph immediately gets deleted and replaced with a few spaces. so an attempted new paragraph would look like this. (I'm typing this on desktop, that's just what it looks like.)

    the cursor will also sometimes move around like the site thinks I'm still typing several lines ago, inserted hyperlinks will un-insert themselves, and stuff I type will generally not register. it's weird. I'm on the firefox mobile browser on android and afaict everything is up to date.

    Firefox mobile did that to me last year at some point? Couldn't figure out a fix so I just swapped to duckduckgo, hasn't happened since.

    btw here's what it looked like when I tried copying out my above post on mobile:

    and after that I gave up because I could barely even get the cursor to stay in the right place.

    I already use duckduckgo as a search engine - do you mean a duckduckgo browser?

    Seconding Firefox trouble on mobile when I used it around last year, I use chrome now and problems vanished when I switched

    When I had that problem (it has since gone away, this was well over a year ago) I hit the button to get out of the rich text editor when I was writing posts and that seemed to fix it

    ok lemme try that testing seems OK so far and now I just switched back to rich text and it's all fucked up again...

    switched back, good again

    looks like the rich text editor is the problem! which means I should learn to use the non-rich text editor I guess.
