    Again, I have been running this thread:

    https://forums.armchairgeneral.com/f...n-of-reckoning

    for some time now. After the update, none of the videos appear, even the most recent video which was posted after the update. I have asked in the thread for someone to simply state whether they can see the videos, but no one has yet to answer that question either. All I see in any post is the wording and white screen, although the youtube tags are visible if I hit the edit tag. Can you please tell me why this is?
    No, I can't. Odd because I posted a YouTube video Friday and it seemed to work right out of the box.

      Unfortunately, the new system counts a number of automated system notifications as "messages" and that's what't clogging up my in box. Still working on clearing that out.

        And as for the above (can't multi-quote yet, but it is post #68 that I mean) that was a great little feature that I never saw anywhere else. So were the awards and ribbons, any good news there?
        Still working on basic functions like videos. Awards will require a new plug-in we don't have yet.

          BTW & FWIW, I just noticed that the "edit" function has no time limit. Not sure if that's a good feature or not, since it allows a lot of "history" here to be rewritten. .
          I rest that to what should be the old value. Watch it for a day or so and let me know.

            Thanks for the answer, I was wondering if something was wrong at my end.

              Still wondering why game reviews posted by Armchair General are in the North Korea sub-forum instead of somewhere more appropriate?

              I've moved them to the Board Games channel but they may have been intended to go on the ACG Magazine site rather than the Forums. I'll find out on Monday.

                The YouTube wrapper stopped working consistently when the film icon was replaced with the YouTube logo icon. I tried to post a video earlier and can't.

                Also, can the expiration for "New Posts" be put back to it's originally setting to never expire? It is expiring really fast. I walk away for a few minutes and then all the New Post listings is gone. If I log off and log back on, it is also gone.

                  YouTube videos are treated like any other hyperlinks now, click on the link icon, paste in the full url, done.

                  I've reset the new post expiration to the old value.

                    Thanks for the response. Apologies if my original post came across as negative.

                      Sorry awards and ribbons are gone for the time being.

                          I think that feature might be gone.

                            For example, I have tried a search, both basic and "advanced", using the search term "battleship"(a not unusual search term for a military history forum) with the following result:

                            Search>>



                            I have tried a lot of different permutations using different search terms with similar, unsuccessful, results.

                            P.S. Timestamp, for my location, now seems to be functioning correctly.

                            Thank you.

                            "Location" means just what it suggests i.e. the city or region that I live in.

                            It's a shame about "flags" i.e. country of origin or of current residence.

                            (It is not connected to the "flag" tag displayed in "Edit Quote Flag Like")

                            Please try to reinstate this if possible.
                            this should be fixed. they re scaned the site. So search should be working again.
