  1. @Jovahexeon Pirate Ridley I've heard back from IPS; the image pasting behaviour is a design choice on their part. Reportedly, Firefox's behaviour is different in this situation, and IPS's approach is to respect the browser's behaviour. In this specific situation, it may not even be possible to create matching behaviour if Firefox is only providing the data and not the reference. Image data copying/pasting is one of those things that has never been addressed in a web standard as far as I know, and it's only in the last couple of years that sites have actually started to do sensible things when faced with it. Thankfully, copying the image location isn't much of a stretch In terms of some of the other issues, this post may be of help:

    Mobile Site Broken?

    I've made a new theme available, "SSMB '18", which you can try out and see if it makes things better. This theme is a recreation of Sonical (light version) starting from an up-to-date codebase, and will eventually replace Sonical. Please note: This is a work in progress, and it's not in the least bit finished We'll be making changes, and strange things/breakage may occur All complaints will be ignored If you can handle that, give it a shot.
  3. Looking into it. (The information in the previous post about how images are stored in the clipboard was slightly incorrect - they're stored as two fields, one with the raw image data, one with the original URL.) https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/topic/446652-browser-specific-behaviour-pasting-images-into-ckeditor/ (for my own info - this link won't work if you aren't an IPS client, but you get the idea)
  4. Slowness: We're running a maintenance op in the background to rebuild the content of all the posts and status updates. It's been running for about a week handling 750 posts a minute, and should be going for another week or so. I'm hoping this is the cause of the intermittent slowness, but will look at it again once the job's complete. Problem ads: I haven't looked at the monetisation strategy in a couple of years, so that's planned when there's some free time, but I am inclined to move away from the type of advertising that invites the problem ads, if we can make it work. I should note that it's disabled on the forum for logged-in users, so your ad blocker isn't really hurting us in that sense! Multiquote: Should be fully functional. It may be a skin-specific issue, or related to an outdated cache or cookies, so try clearing those. If it still doesn't work, could you open the developer toolbar (F12) and switch to the Console tab, and see if any errors appear when reloading the page. Notifications: May be related to the multiquote issue. Editor image importing: This does seem to be different, looking at it more closely. This is intended behaviour. Standard text editors (used in IPB3 etc) will fail to paste an image, or will insert the local path for a drag-and-dropped image (which won't work anyway). Early versions of IPS4's editor would store a pasted/dropped image in the post itself as a data URL (a very long URL containing the entire image data), which isn't ideal for the database - this may be the behaviour you're thinking of. The current editor should work like this: Drag and drop an image from your computer = upload as an attachment Drag and drop an image from a webpage = hotlink to the original image Copy and paste an image from Windows Explorer = upload as an attachment Copy and paste the URL of an image = hotlink to the original image Copy and paste an image from a webpage = upload a true colour PNG of the image browser-specific? The latter case happens because, when copying image data, it's stored in the clipboard as a raw uncompressed image (of a single frame - forget using it for gifs) and nothing else (no URL, for example), so the editor doesn't have much choice but to convert it to a web-suitable format. General theme problems: We're working on a new set of themes, which should resolve the small wear and tear problems from updating a load of times. No ETA.

    GIF Embedding is Glitchy?

    This should fix itself eventually. As far as I know it's to do with one server taking a request intended for the other, and acting as a middleman (proxying) for it; there are a few things not quite working properly, and this is one of them. It was previously the backup server proxying for the main, now it's the other way around. It's necessary to do it because it can take days to make every visitor's system aware that the site is on a different server (DNS propagation), and during that transition period there's no real way of controlling which server a system will try to access - imagine two diverging versions of the same forum where one group of people can't see what the other has posted, and vice versa. That isn't what we want, so the moment we switch from one server to another we replace the forum on the old one with a proxy. That allows us to take people stuck on the old server and give them a way to use the new one anyway, until eventually no-one remembers the old one any more! Might be worth clearing cookies/cache in the meantime, though I'm not sure it'll help with anything.
  9. The move went smoothly, if slowly. There's still a lot going on in the background, so things may be slow at times.
  10. We're doing some major work on the main TSS server over the 1st and 2nd of June, to resolve some big under-the-hood problems that have appeared in recent months. As part of this, all of the websites are being moved to our backup server while the main server is being worked on. In SSMB's case, we brought the move forward to earlier on Friday since people were experiencing major problems using the site - this was the cause of the 3 hours of downtime. However, the backup server has significantly fewer computing resources, so everything will be running slowly until the sites are moved back over. We've also had to disable the search functionality, which includes the activity streams on profiles. We intend to complete the work tonight (the morning of the 2nd) if possible. When we're able to, SSMB will be closed for maintenance again, so the database and uploads can be transferred back to the main server. As always, I apologise for the downtime, and with any luck things will be running better on the other side.
  11. Thx D. It's around the £30 mark, which is slightly disappointing but unsurprising. https://www.shopto.net/nintendo/switch/SWSO07-sonic-mania-plus
  12. Forum update shortly, a little downtime expected.

      Don't tell me SSMB's going under because of Nintendo America too D:

  13. I just remembered I have an important announcement to make. Today is 1 year, 2 months and 23 days since Capcom installed a rootkit on their PC SF5 players' computers. That is all, thank you for your time.
