Firstly, how do you change the mains that appear on your profile?
And Secondly, how do you add that extra thing that appears under your post?

Why I can't use my usual all-black profile picture today?
Tis April Fools and Crash crashed into the boards. It will be like this until the end of the day.

There's this 9 year old thread in the "General Social" forum: if I wish to discuss the same topic, would it be better for me to bump that thread or make a new one?

There is currently a glitch where you can't search up posts from the last few years using the search function.

For example I searched posts that have the term "Quote" in the title. The latest result is from 2014 despite there being a Quote support thread from 2017.

Try searching any term in the searchbar and you won't get that many recent results.

Oddly enough, phrases that are used in quote/spoilers can still be found. Search up "Geno" to see what I mean.

EDIT: Search up posts from me and you will only get stuff from today and around 2014. Everything else is gone.

I've been running a rebuild of the search index today, so that would explain this. It takes a number of hours to do a full rebuild, so it's still currently running

I would expect this to be working as expected in another few hours once it's finished :happysheep:

Hello everyone, I keep seeing people with sweet pictures in their signature but I haven't been able to find out how to add images into the signature. The only option it seems is that I have to add it using a URL but I can't just add them from my computer? I appreciate any help!

Thanks!

That is the only way. Easiest way is to upload your images to a image hosting site like imgur or the like.

Right here. Where are you?
Mic_128 Mic_128 , or anyone who sees this first, I am aware that someone's thread was locked due to its expression of support for a fourth party character. I told them about it, but they were confused because Goku is a fourth party character. Is there some missing piece of information?

How do I access my drafts from threads I started but haven't posted? I saved one as a draft but now I can't access it.

Is in depth discussion of cryptocurrency allowed here? I was thinking of making a thread for it under general social.

Post/thread drafts are not intended to be used as a long-term storage solution. Drafts are discarded if they are not edited for 48 hours. If you need to keep one around for longer than that without changing it at all, I recommend using a word processor program on your computer or Google Docs.

Hmm, I guess you can make one, I'd just make a clear note that our users aren't qualified to give financial advice and that Smashboards is not a place to seek out financial advice. If the thread goes in that direction anyway we may have to close it.

I've been wondering, how do the top pinned threads work?

For context, we've been discussing the possibility of a "Character Exploration Thread" in the general DLC discussion thread. It's kinda like Rate Their Chances, but it would eschew the ratings and debates in favor of casual discussion of the character in question; Who they are, what they could bring, what their games are like, etc. The intent is that it helps liven things up a bit and get more topics, since a lot of people feel the DLC Spec has gotten kinda repetitive as of late.

I came here to ask some questions because I'm wondering if a thread like this could/should be pinned at the top of the messages, like with the aforementioned General DLC Spec and RTC threads. There's also a community Echo voting thread, but that seems to be dead. A general yet organized thread like the Character Exploration pitch I've suggested seems like it would fit in with those, but I'm not quite sure what the criteria is regarding those pinned channels and if the hypothetical CET would fit those requirements.

The posts section of profiles is acting glitchy. For example if you check out my most recent content:


It'll say that my most recent post was on June 14th. This is wrong since I made a bunch of posts on the 15th and none of them are showing up.

Yo! I'm just a bit sick and tired of not being able to add a photo to my signature. It was easy to do before, just upload to Imgur, and add the text/link within; "insert photo" by url. However, each time I try there is this error; "Something went wrong, try again or ask an administrator". I have even resized it plenty of times, and it's really getting tiering. Is there any solution to this? It would be appreciated.
