Performance

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where pressing the middle mouse button on a topic would open the post preview.
  • Fixed an issue where banned users could log in to Cards Against Lucas if they were previously signed in.
  • Fixed an issue where the title of a post would get mixed in with the post's statistics.
  • The YouTube BBCode tag no longer requires the video ID. You may also use a youtube.com or youtu.be link.
  • The cookie banner now only shows up in European countries that require it.

Removed
  • Removed the members page, please use the search page. Rational: https://twitter.com/DonutTeam/status/969487299238137856.
  • Removed the custom context menu that plagued the editor. You can now use your browser's spellcheck again. This creates other issues, but the ability to use spellcheck is very important.
  • Removed the forum search.
  • Removed the steam link found in profiles.

Known Issues
We're currently working on fixing some issues that we did not notice while testing:
  • Boards are showing up in the incorrect order. This is now fixed.
  • Private boards do not show up for people with permission to view them. For now click "More > Private Topics" This is now fixed.
  • Previewing spoiler tags in the editor is not currently working.

Sincerely,
Jake AndreĂžli
