  • Dont you just hate spam -looks down the coffee house thread page-

    @Dr Herbie: We made the change to Mod permissions to allow you to delete threads. It might be live now if you want to give it a try, otherwise it'll be up next time we do an update.

  • Editing user profile error

    @FredrikNilsson: I tried your twitter handle in dev and it works for me. If I put a space before or after, it fails though such as "fredriknilsson_ " or " fredriknilsson_". Can you verify that there are no extra spaces when you are putting in in?

  • Editing user profile error

    I will check it out, thanks for letting us know!

  • Profile/​Queue page performance

    @devlife3: We can look into it. To help us repro the problem - about how many videos do you have in your queue at a time?

  • Subtitles in videos needed!

    @giangreco: @Deafie: Thanks for your feedback, it really helps us to know what our user's priorities are. I can't give an absolute timeframe for when this will be ready to go but we are progressing on it. I'm not sure if you noticed but we upgraded our player recently to the newest framework of the SMF player which has better support for captions. Technically, the Silverlight player now supports captions but there are a few things left to do - 1. We need to add the support to the backend for our content teams to be able to associate a caption file. 2. We need to get the process going so that we are creating caption files for our videos going forward. 3. We need to update our html5 player to support captions as well. Hopefully it helps you to know that we are working on it, there are just a lot of little details to take care of to actually get it running.

  • Changing the Name Under the Avatar

    @Zueuk: If just you want to change the LiveID that is associated with your account and keep your username, set up a temporary new account with the LiveID that you want to keep and send us an email with both Usernames letting us know which you want to keep. We can move your LiveID association from the temporary account back to the old account and delete the temporary account. Hope that makes sense.

  • Changing the Name Under the Avatar

    Display Name, I believe, is pretty much legacy from the last version of the website. We really only use Username on this version except on a user's profile page. We've built the functionality to allow users to change their own username but it hasn't been pushed up live yet. There was a bit of a snag last week - we had to make it work with VS Achievements which is tied to username but that was fixed so I would expect it to be pushed up live soon. In the meantime, you can email us with your old username and what you would like it to be changed to.

  • Subtitles in videos needed!

    Yes, we are working on adding CC/subtitles to the videos. Would that be enough or do you prefer transcripts along with the videos? Thank you for the feedback!

  • CSS media queries

    We have been talking about this for a while and we discussed it again because of your post. We're not sure exactly how we're going to implement this yet but we will do something.

  • How to view queued videos?

    @vbaderks: There was a little bug in there that didn't show the Queue tab if you didn't have any previous comments or posts. The fix should be pushed up later today - thanks for letting us know.
