    [quote=Mr Quin;1568786740;67293993]I've got a problem where I cannot access my profile. It throws a 404 error when I click on my profile, and other users can't see it as well. I suspect it's because I have a space in my name. Anyone know any way to get around that?
    Yeah, it's because of the space (there are some other problem characters as well). There are quite a few such inaccessible accounts which don't seem to ever have got fixed, so creating a new profile and requesting deletion of your old one is probably your best bet.

    kuma -- can new account creation be fixed so it doesn't let users create accounts with spaces etc in their user name?

    Can we get item condition to show up in the Notifications for Ads? I hate seeing a sales notification for an item I want and then clicking through only to find it's in an undesirable condition. Would rather be able to see it in the notifications. Thanks!
    Treasures untold in my Sales List 1 and Sales List 2!

    Hello!
    Due to the recent state of the articles and a lot of people feeling less than happy about it, I'd like to suggest something to elevate at least some of the frustration I've been seeing.

    The forums on this site are fairly inactive compared to the articles page. Some of the topics that have dedicated forums (predominantly shop questions and figure identifications) get asked a lot in the articles instead, leading to some frustrating comments, and a discouraged user who's article gets deleted.

    Here's my suggestion;
    Consider adding a note on the article creation page, which would direct a user to specified forums, with links to different forums. There's a big empty space on the right side of the article creation page, which seems like a perfect place for that kind of information. It would both direct the person to the right place to ask their question, and remind people that forums actually exist, which would, ideally, make them more active.

    Here's a mock-up I did to illustrate the idea better;

    Additionally and unrelated to the previous part of this post; I've been noticing that the articles sometimes cut a word if it reaches the end of the line, and the word is replaced by '...' instead of being properly fully moved to the next line. Sometimes it makes the sentence hard to read because the reader needs to assume what the word was supposed to be. I've never seen anything like this before on other sites so I assume it's a coding issue, and just wanted to bring it to light in case no one else did yet.

    This this this this^^^^^

    I feel like part of the issue is that people don't read the guidelines before checking off the box at the bottom of the article creation page, so I wonder if an alternative would be to put those "immediately relevant" info points down by the check box, or move the check box up to the hypothetical sidebar information. (I'm not particularly married to either of those configurations; I just think the two elements should gesture towards each other in some way.)

    EDIT: I just left a comment on BLOG #44300, but the short version is that I would love to see a crackdown on what qualifies as an article in general, and then see some of that other content migrating over to the forums.

    It also occurred to me that the regular MFC forum doesn't even have a general figure discussion thread? Or like, just a thread to talk about pre-orders? I feel like that kind of stuff would be relatively easy to get people to use, and then maybe lead to more (and better) forum usage overall.

    This seems so obvious to create, i remember how this helped getting convos in check on a forum i frequented a lot and people could ask questions and being directed to other threads from there without fearing of posting somewhere wrong.

    I checked and i can sticky threads in here, at least something we can do *hurray*.

    Gonna get a second opinion in quickly but i really don't see any harm in having a general figure discussion corner.

    I'm open for puntastic name suggestions.

    Edit: Got a second go for it in from admin who thinks it's a good idea.

    Awesome! I'm not sure about names, but I'll keep an eye out for the thread and make an effort to start/continue discussion.

    On the same issue, I wonder if disallowing help/advice articles is too dramatic? We do have a help thread that's pretty active, so it's not like there isn't a place for that stuff already.
