    This has been fixed. There was a permissions issue but all users should now be able to upload pics straight to DMs.
    (Make sure you have the latest build installed)

    Bought a krom and they gave me this mini poster and I swear it has Tyler the creator in it holding a kendama. Maybe they just look similar but.... I’ll take a pic when I can.

    When I check few accounts on my mobile phone, few profiles are cut. For example Ben Lowe is ok, bad dæmon isn't framed.

    @Gasiek do you have the latest version? That looks like the one from a few months ago.

    He doesn’t seem to be full dama but he definitely seshes every now and then

    The "thumbs up" guy (local celeb) in the pic below is a customer of our ramen shop and he can play a bit now since he's tried our kendama/ramen challenge a few times. Not really a player's player but at least it's a step in the right direction and he was part of getting kendama on that morning show in the Philippines.

    Forum search could perhaps benefit from a tweak if it's possible. Searching for partial words doesn't seem to work. For example searching "Photo" doesn't return results that have "Photos" or "Photograph" or "Photography" in them.

    My opinion is to have the sidebar reorganized, and grouped.
    Only have these items (in order, from top to bottom) :


    (Forum items)
    Home
    Search
    Forums

    • Forums
    • The Sesh
    • DS Exchange
    Videos
    • Featured
    • Trending
    • Fresh
    • Add Video
    Members
    • Leaderboard
    • Currently Seshing
    • Recent Activity

    <gap>

    (User items)
    Conversations
    Chatter
    Alerts
    News Feed
    (dunno if we should keep this)

    <gap>

    (Account related)
    Account
    • Settings
    • Notifications

    The idea here is to make the Search feature more prominent, to encourage use.
    Splitting it into 3 main categories (forum / user / account) makes it easier to navigate.
    Have clear gaps between the 3 categories. It’s psychologically pleasing to the eye and faster to glance and navigate.
    Keep the sub menu items at a minimum. Ideally 3 at max, but there’s really not much choice at the Videos sub menu.
    Having the News Feed is debatable.. i dunno if people ever use it.

    Can't seem to get BBCode to work correctly for making my signature's image clickable or rather it always goes to the image host not the site I put in. Checked the code that should be OK on a BBCode checker and it works but the same code doesn't work here.

    Anyone else have this problem, from search results if any are videos and you click on the link to that video it just takes you to the video page not the specific video?

    Under profiles "Interact" there are sections for Instagram and Facebook links. The Facebook link still doesn't work for me.
