Hi everyone!
As you may have noticed the new dark theme has been rolled out a few minutes ago.
I have been pushing through some fixes for the preview being too dark and the bold seemingly not working. If you are experiencing issues with this still, please clear your cache.

If any other issues are experienced, please notify me.

Hi everyone!
This is a short update about the search issue you all have reported some time ago. We did get in contact with Ellimist and he has looked into the issue. This is something we are very grateful for, considering that Ellimist is not a regular staff member, but the person who helps us host AS.

The issue boils down to the fact that we are using a search algorithm not optimized for a board with this many posts. We will be looking into switching to a better search algorithm, but this will take some time due to testing it before we apply it on AS. We will keep you updated as we proceed. Thank you all for your patience!

If you have any questions, feel free to message me!

I hope this is the place to ask and apologise if it isn't, but are there any updates to be had on the Personal Storage forum no longer allowing the deletion of posts?

Hi there!
This is the correct place to ask, don't worry. As far as I can see in the moderator logs, you should be able to delete your posts in the Personal Storage. If this is not the case, feel free to send me a pm with further information as to what you are trying to delete exactly and the view / steps you are taking to do so to ensure that we are on the same page about it.

Hi everyone,

Here a short update. I have updated the e-mail settings of the board. This should fix the issues people were having with notification / subscription emails not being delivered. Please let me know if the issue persists!

      • i have a recommendation for something that could be added to the site if it's possible. i think it would be really convenient to have a search function within your own pms. i know there's a sort function to display them in a different order, but it still requires clicking through pages and pages of pms to find what you're looking for. unless this is a function that already exists and i'm just an idiot who can't figure it out

We have had this request before and I definitely think that it is a handy feature to have. Unfortunately, phpbb does not support this functionality. I have looked through the extension database and I did not find any verified extension enabling this functionality. So as much as I hate to say it, I am afraid it is not possible. If it was, I would definitely look into it. I'm sorry to let you down. I wish I could do more on this but I simply can't.

Hi scribes,
Just a small post to update you all.

I have noticed that the "edit signature" page (and for some users other pages) throws 504 Gateway Timeouts on some devices. It has persisted for a few hours now. Therefore I am in the process of reaching out to the server host to see if it can get fixed.

I'll keep you all updated about it, but this is a heads up to let you all know it is being worked on, in case you run into this issue as well.

As an intermediate user-sided fix, it seems like using a different device may bypass this error. However, I unfortunately can not guarantee this.
