Homescreen notepad (in Changelog)


AdminNightStrike March 11 2010 12:38 PM EST

A long time ago, CB had a feature called a "user bio" that allowed you, as users, to craft personal biographies for your account. Logically, these would then be displayed somewhere related to your user page. That functionality disappeared a while ago, but the data remained.

I reactivated the bio field, called it "Notes", and put it on your home screen. You can use this for pretty much anything, up to about 4000 characters. Currently, it is not displayed anywhere else but there.

Enjoy.

Demigod gets to receive any complaints for the change this time around. Congratulations, Demi! Please CM him directly, and don't post them in this thread.

Son of a...

:P

I actually don't expect too many complaints. Requests for tweaks, maybe, but not complaints.

You should probably add a space between History: top Characters by PR
and Notes

Agreed, but aside from that this is an awesome addition.

I get a server error when I click on the 'My user page' tab. Is this related or is the problem just my end??

This will come in handy when I need to backup wiki pieces I'm editing.

Cool stuff.

Most likely on your end, because I am not getting this error.

I get the same server error as Wasp.

Thanks, Wasp. Fixed.

I'm going to use it for keeping track of how many people in chat say the word Meh.

Brilliant.
Thanks NightStrike

Prefer it to be on my community page rather than homepage, but that's me just being picky I guess :)

Thx NS! :)
