turn your world upside down
Just wondering how come I wasn't given one of them star yokes under name on the back of winning an award or two?

Thanks million.

TBP
They were only handed out for the first time at last years ceremony and the arrangement at the time was that they would only be up for the year after they were awarded - meaning they disappear with the next Awards Ceremony and new ones may be handed out to the next worthy winners. @Niall ??

So firstly you peaked too soon, secondly even if you'd had them, not winning anything last year meant you wouldn't have one anyway and last, you'd better put some serious effort into getting any votes this time around don't ya think? Maybe you are relying on old reputations TBP?

Something like this was asked before but the initial question seems to have gotten lost in the discussion around threadmarking etc.

Would it be possible to have pages added to the watched threads list?

Is there a reason it's limited to 19 or whatever it is? The other threads are there it's just I can't see them unless I remove a few.

Just wanted to say that the new stat feature in the match day thread is a nice addition. To whoever is updating it in real time, thanks and great work!

I've seen some people liking posts, is that reserved for certain people only? Doesn't seem like an option is available?

Having issues using the formatting and smileys in Chrome on android 11.

Anyone else facing the same issues?
If you're talking about everything being greyed out then yeah, I had that problem. If you look on the right hand side there's a yellow cog. Tap it and it goes back to normal.

Any chance for a "viewed" button allowing quoted posters to avoid replying, but letting the poster quoting them know they read his post?

To expand on what Olly said, we use likes primarily to promote people from the newbie system, so that is part of the reason why it is restricted to staff. Some rogue staffers may like a mains post or two but we highly discourage it.
Thanks.

I cant use anything from the meny above were i write this. Cant press the emoji button, insert links or anything. The whole meny is just almost invicible, like its a grey layer over it.

My question is, why is that?

Edit : i am on a mobile, chrome.

Click the little yellow cog icon on the right and it will enable the rest.

Press the wee yellow cog on the right hand side.

And your question is because you pressed the wee yellow cog on the right hand side.

Thanks.

a follow up question. Why does that cog exist?
So you can post or edit messages directly in the source code. Sometimes I'll paste something and the options wont get rid of a certain style applied to the text, like an indent or something, and so removing it directly from the code is the only way to do it.

Also if you're posting lots of images they can take up lots of room in the box, so turning them off and only showing as the link rather than the actual picture makes writing the rest of your post easier.

Ok thanks. Most of that was like greek to me, but i understood ”makes something easier” and i really appreciate all the things you guys do to make this forum as great as it is.

I don't know if it's a coincidence but since last accepting cookies here I'm having problems closing and opening new tabs (any tabs) on my tablet and also my mobile when I'm on the forum. I have to come out of the forum and close the tabs manually. I then go back into chrome and the tabs are still there but it now let's me open and close tabs as normal.

Anyone else having the same problem?

Dear Withnail,

I was the poster which raised the initial question. Today, I unintentionally figured it out.


This page is what led to my question. 8 threads and when you scroll down to the bottom of page it ends at the 19th thread



Here, you can see there's 20 pages worth of 19 threads. So, on this tab I can effectively see 380 threads. In contrast, the second tab, I can only see 19 threads which led to my ignorance

To conclude, you need to view from https://www.redcafe.net/watched/threads as opposed to Redcafe.net.

In other words, locate forums from the navigational bar which can be found in-between "Home" and "Match Day", and click the arrow facing downwards. Click watched threads and you'll see an extensive list.

The issue was that we clicked "Watched" next to "Newbies" section. Doing so will result in you seeing 19 threads.


Kind Regards,

Rasendori

Where are you sourcing that URL from? Does linking to the relevant facebook.com URL not work?
That's from the FB iphone app, using the share button under the vid. Not sure how I'd do that?

Hmm, I've not seen Facebook urls like that before. It's odd that it isn't coming from facebook.com. I'll need to look into this.

Do other videos from the Facebook iPhone app have different URLs?
