I don't see it as a problem, it's only showing what is already on people's accounts just on a map

So like a map where you can optionally add yourself to be able to find other GTF'ers near you

Yeah, it's doable. Although if you just want people to see where you are, add each other on Snapchat and use that location feature. Having it as a feature on GTF seems kinda abusable.


yea i found a good map site for it with a password but i feel like kids mapping the location of their house is just begging for disaster

Yeah I don't think it would be a great addition either, snapmap is good enough I think.

There is a feature for blocking people (you mark them as your foes), but not to block moderators. They are considered too respected and established to be blocked.

I know it's been already said and that the staff have work they already are doing, but maybe instead of a large YC event like the writing challenge, smaller contests that are worth less points but are more frequent and engaging so people stay involved and team leaders and members don't have to push and remind for more participation within their group

Please make a separate, non-English speaking channel on the Discord. It is frustrating to see people typing another language, essentially isolated the majority of the forum who are not bilingual.

I mean, if you really want to know what’s being said that badly, use google translate.

I don't see anything wrong with people speaking another language. I don't think it needs to be discouraged and I don't think suggesting that such users be SEGREGATED is a decent idea.

Discord is busy enough that multiple conversations happen at one time and I've seen people conversing in another language and people just talk around it. It's really just not that much of an issue imo.

I stand by what I said.

We've actually taken this into consideration and created the "overflow_channel"-channel on Discord. You can move to this channel when something/someone annoys you in main_chat, this can be during argument or when someone's talking another language, bilingual people can also immediately move to this chat to prevent people from getting annoyed. :keke:

It's possible I'm going crazy but I swear certain posts have a larger (and somewhat annoying) gap in between the first sentence and text they're quoting - and the formatting of the post suggests that the gap shouldn't be that large.

Example:

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=75350&p=2515753#p2515753

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=75350&p=2515753#p2515753

How it should look:

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=75350&start=1360#p2514549

Maybe I'm getting old and senile. Can anyone else see that?
