Seems to work the same way as the newer themes did.
Yep. Right click on the number of the post and copy the link.
but that's just a normal link.

i need the permalink, like what you get under the "add threadmark" button (which is only in threads you created)

https://www.resetera.com/posts/15613392/ <- permalink, not offered anywhere anymore
https://www.resetera.com/threads/th...dinate-collaborate-read-op.1100/post-15613392 <- normal link, now under both the post number and the timestamp

but then again, do we even need permalinks anymore as, iirc, something about post counts got changed but I don't remember what at the moment.

the format changed, but it looks like it works like a permalink to me tbh. There's no page number in the link, and the post number is the same.

It doesn’t list page number so it should be as good as a permalink.

The Threadmarks feature shown in this topic will be useful for OTs and large threads in general, allowing OPs to select the most useful/helpful posts for a drop-down menu above every page. Tbh I think the feature needs to be brought to more users' attention though as it's kinda buried in the middle of that topic which not everyone will even read (both thread makers and readers).

Per the FAQ

III. Junior Status

After your account is approved, you will begin as a Junior Member. This is your chance to settle in, get a feel for the forum, and demonstrate your capacity for civil discourse. Moderation may be stricter during this period, but to discourage elitism there will be no public indication of Junior Member status. Junior Members are not able to create new threads. In order to move from being a Junior Member to a full Member, two conditions must be met: (1) 90 days must have passed since your account was approved and (2) you must have made at least 300 posts. Once these two conditions are met, your account will automatically be upgraded to Member status.

Did you read the OP?

  • Not OK: It's E3 2018 and you want to claim a game announced for "2019" or "Winter 2018"
  • Not OK: It's December 2018 and you want to claim a game announced for "2019" or "Summer 2019"
  • OK: It's E3 2018 and you want to claim a game announced for Q4 2019
  • OK: It's December 2018 and you want to claim a game announced for Q2/"first half of" 2019

Not OK = Summer 2019 and claiming it from december 2018

Yet Early summer 2019 is acceptable for a FF14 expansion which was claimed last month


huh

Imma vouch for Prince since he does make the highest quality Yakuza series OTs on the site. I see no reason for him not to claim it. But that's my two cents.

did you read the parenthesis? and can you please trust that there's some sort of rhyme and reason behind these when there are exceptions that don't fit into the preset mould? I'm not here to amuse myself.

it has nothing to do with who claims something. it's simply outside of the window. that is all.

Is there a way to search threads for specific posts. I want to do the Jedi Fallen Order OT and that leak a suggested it was coming next November. Obvsiously I have to wait for official dates and what not but I wanted to check and see if anyone had already expressed their desire to make that OT.

search -> "this thread only"
