• Welcome to this new upgrade of the site. We are now on a totally different software platform. Many things will be different, and bugs are expected. Certain areas (like downloads and reviews) will take longer to import. As always, please use the Meta Forum for site queries or bug reports. Note that we (the mods and admins) are also learning the new software.

No XP/Laughs?

I always liked the old rep system better anyway, since you could only get repped by newbs, as it would stop anyone from repping you who had repped you recently. As such, I thought it encouraged people to be nice and helpful in a way that the like system just encouraged cliques. In fact, the like system came to largely be used as a weapon in arguments, and the best way to farm XP from it was simply be controversial.

Ah, that explains why even though my join date was in 2002, most of my posts were from 2014 and newer (and most of my XP that I got up to level 27 with), and why I'm now just a valued member.

Edit Well, I just became a hero! "Time to be a hero!" (as the 4 year old always yells after PJ Masks)

Ha! You young whippersnappers with your 2002 join dates! Some of us were around before there was a 2002!

You know, before I post any more comments about the perfidy of Paladins there's something I wanted to say.

Having read the threads about the evilness of gnomes and the awesomeness of Katana over the years, and I've spoken to many of you, and some of you have commented ... y'know... thousands of times here on enworld, I'd just like to say... GET A LIFE, will you people?

I mean, for crying out loud, it's just an Internet forum about dragons and stuff!

I mean, look at you, look at your avatar! You've turned an enjoyable little hobby, spouting some nonsense on these here intertubez that I have done as a lark for a little while, into a COLOSSAL WASTE OF TIME!

I mean, how old are we? What have you done with yourselves?

There's a whole world out there! Back in the day, I didn't put my comments on trucks heading down the inter tube highway! I didn't even have a puter! I DIDN'T TALK ABOUT PLAYING, I PLAYED!

So... move out of your basements! Stop tappity tappity tapping on your keyboards. And get your own games and GROW THE HELL UP! I mean, it's just a message board dammit, IT'S JUST RANTINGS INTO THE ETHER!

Just as a PSA, no one has a join date earlier than January 2002. There was a major crash then that wiped out pretty much everything.

Oh, I remember. Hence the “before there was a 2002” part. It was funny in my head, anyway.

I guess this is as good a place as any to mention that I can’t see any join-dates on a mobile device, at all, though.

Edit= Unless I tap on the user-name/avatar, that is!

The "tapatalk app" is marketed as "EN World" app by "Morrus" (complete with the official graphics) so I think users are excused for believing this site can help them with issues regarding the app.

That said, the xp system didn't work on the app. Or rather, there was two systems running in parallell: I could see likes and hearts given by app users (and I could see my previous likes and hearts) on the app. In a browser none of that showed. On the other hand, I could see xp and laughs given by desktop users (and I could see my previous xp and laughts) in the browser. In the app none of that showed.

I imagine the new system means everything works everywhere now, which I consider an improvement.

I can confirm, however, that the "menu" of various likes is not available in the app. People talking about "long press" must be talking about how to make the menu show in their mobile browsers (not in the EN World app).

Yeah some online play-by-post dudes (and there was one in particular) were climbing the charts XPing each other which was ridiculous. I'm convinced this was one of the concerns.

I used to take a peverse pride in my low-level status - I mean, only gaining a level every year or so is so old school, right? - but I had a notification last week someone had given me some XP, but the site went down before I could find out who it was, and what it was for. And that makes me a little sad.

So thank you, whoever you were; I'm sorry the moment was lost in the site upgrade.

Funny thing: I can’t count the amount of accidental likes I’ve handed out just by scrolling through that app.

On a desktop, it seems my only option is "Like". Someone just reacted to one of my posts with a Laugh, so I assume that's still a thing - but how do I access it?

Hover your mouse over the "Like" link. Six different emojis should show up in a pop-up box. Pick the one you want to use.

Ah, that might be it...though other sites don't have an issue bringing up content on a hover, using the same settings. Curious.
