And we're back! 🎉

So basically nothing has really changed. If I was a troll (I’m not by the way). There’s nothing stopping me using disposable emails and VPNs to sign up and post. Get those accounts established over a few days, multiple accounts if one is that way inclined.

Then let rip later on in the future.

Did that 3 times it’s finally changed, must have been a glitch 🤦

Edit - that’s just temporary view though, it switches back to list view as that’s the only default I can choose in settings

Same here, I can put it into the good ok’ categories but refreshing the page/logging back in, resets it.

Did as @davidwalton suggested, but the admin settings must’ve been changed, and the only allowed default view is “Latest” :disappointed:

Spare a thought for the poor users who were reaching for the ‘Enthusiast’/‘Aficionado’/‘Devotee’ badge and got to day 9/99/364, only for the forum to be closed :disappointed:

Wonder what happens to the discourse ‘visits clock’ now - is it reset to ignore the lockdown or was it always counting?

It’s great to have the forum back and I hope there isn’t a repeat of what happened over the fateful weekend. I am not sure if the steps here go far enough but they are definitely steps in the right direction so I am quietly hopeful :blush:

Approx 79 minutes after unlockdown before someone got flagged :man_facepalming:

Can we at least try a flag free period on the first day of the return of the forum?

I feel like a lot of people abuse the flag feature and always have and always will until it gets fixed.

Maybe if you flag 3 posts in rapid succession your own account goes under review. I don’t know the ins and outs of discourse

They’ve always said that flags and people that do then can be reviewed, so that’s nothing new. But then you’ve got to work out was it really worth a flag and that’s subjective to that individual.

Could the admins please put back the forum layout to how it was ( I believe categories layout has been turned off )

And welcome back everyone :wave:

I agree, this layout is terrible, category view is much more useful when there are lots of discussions about different things going on

@AlanDoe @cookywook please? :pray:
