About the new Blender Artists

Hmm, I can’t explain that. I’ll keep my eyes open for more issues like this.

Ok, thanks.

I think it might have to do with the posts that were lost during the migration. After the migration I noticed in the blender 2.8 thread there was a cap of about 4 days worth of posts missing. I’m guessing it was forum wide and not just limited to that thread.

April 6 wasn’t during that window though. It could be that this was the failing regexp issue; some posts with specific links apparently failed migration - we’re working on fixing those too.

No I don’t mean that posts made during the migration(there were none after all - migration wall/maintenance page in place) but last couple of days worth of posts fro before that. Yes, it likely has to do with the regexp, but probably more to it than just those posts with specific links.

5 posts were split to a new topic: Editing post title gives 502 bad gateway error

Good job! I like Blender Artist 2.0 very much! keep it up!!!


So was it published already? I’d like to bookmark it since I was searching for this thread for several times up until now and it always wasn’t easy.

For real, i never liked discourse. But the Blender Artists approach was so cool i changed my mind, i loved the new forum. Good job!!

It is, but notepad or equivalent, preview panel and cancelling won’t leave drafts, publicly at least. Editing within 5 minutes too.

I think it’s a mistake to start everyone as a new user. Its like losing senority.
Some people have been here a very long time. I joined 2006. Kinda sucks.
Other than that, It’s OK so far.

You still have all information about join date, post count and all posts in your profile.

Hmm, I see, gonna take a while to get used to it. :slight_smile:

Thanks for all the hard work. It’s feeling more like home already.
Great job. :grinning:

For all those who might have missed the news (@colkai, @piergi),
you can now go back to the old website to find your subscriptions and transfer them here.
Here’s how to do it.

And take note of this :
if you posted on a thread back in the old days, you should already be “Tracking” the topic here. Only the threads you subscribed to without posting in them are really removed from your subscriptions here.

You can list all your tracked topics by going in Preferences > Categories > Show tracked topics
(I know, it’s an absurd place for such a thing)

Thanks a lot!

Cheers, will go and check.

it appears you can’t cancel your account

That’s always been the case. If you want to be removed from the site, you’ll need to contact an admin (me or @bartv) via PM.

This is a pretty bad excuse when tasks can be automated. I’ve been here for ten years.
