Japanese text

We have a number of posts using Japanese characters. Because of how vBulletin stored these and how Xenforo stores them now, these have not been transferred over correctly. To fix these, we need to:

  • Go to the old forums and find the same post
  • Copy the text - ideally by going into “Edit Post” or “Quote” mode
  • Go to the new forums
  • Edit post
  • Paste
  • Save

That should re-store these posts as UTF-8, that is, in their proper encoding.

Apologies for the inconvenience, we were unable to find a way to fix these and the Xf support forums were unresponsive in this case.
I feel personally victimised by this and am lodging a formal complaint.

But also how cool is it to be able to just highlight text (even on a phone) and quote that in a post. What a time to be alive.

Hey all, awesome work on making everything look all shiny & new :D

This may have been covered, but after a quick tinker & look, I can't find my "subscribed threads", is this what the "watched" is meant to be? In saying that, would the old subscribed threads be able to be ported to this format?

Thanks :D

Yeah that contrast looks like it wouldn't pass any of the WCAG minimum requirements.

In other news, the green background when marking text is pretty. It makes me happy.

Just wanna chip in that I figured the text colour thing was a design thing and that I'd have to get used to it, but I dun liek it because I have to tilt my screen to see it properly. I keep my screen slightly dimmed because bright lights hurt pretty quickly. Is there any way of making it sharper at least?

I've changed the colours for both the "not selected" tabs in the header and the search bar (which also changes the mailbox icon colour), since they were also black. Could you all please let me know if that's better?

Thanks

I had a colleague who was quite into / versed in the accessibility wotsit, and he used a contrast meter (like https://webaim.org/resources/contrastchecker/ ) to check his colors here and there; iirc the WCAG dictates a minimal contrast rating. One of the interesting things he did was very subtly change the official company logo shade of orange so that it met the WCAG recommendations (I forgot the exact location / circumstance it was used at). Nobody noticed, but the number was better, so, woot.

Erm, I mean. I agree the previous colors was a bit hard to see in high light conditions. Carry on, :monster:. How is the official Xf skin looking in those conditions?

Late to the party, but yes. The forums look awesome.

I'm having a hard time figuring out how to navigate on mobile, though, buuuut maybe that's just user error. :monster:
I only ever use mobile to view the site so let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to fill you in :)
