Hello! I'm the new guy, with a question!
« on: July 28, 2009, 12:45:24 PM »
Hello all!

I'm so happy about this site!
I have been playing rpg's since I was 13 (that's 18 years ago!), mostly as DM.
As anybody else into games for such a long time, I've tried many different rules and settings.
I definitely prefer rule light systems, as I love to focus on action and narration, not on endless dice rolling and table scanning, and my fellow players share this view (lucky me!).
My heart is for Fantasy settings, especially on the low fantasy / sword & sorcery side of it, but I am also fond of everything "Cthulhuish".
I've found Strolen's Citadel while I was "googling" "Five room dungeons", which seems to me to be a pretty good format to frame plot ideas and share them.
I'm not a native English speaker, so I apologize in advance for all my mistakes!

Now with the question!

I've submitted a little thing... but it all went ugly! See for yourself:

http://strolen.com/viewing/Infernal_Love_Potion

All the paragraphs got together without separations, and the bold and italic text got normal.

I suspect something went wrong with the button "Add/remove editor", which, on both my browsers (Safari and Mozilla), does nothing. Am I right?
What am I to do to fix the text?

Weird... we seem to have a little bug there. Anyway, feel welcome and peruse the catalogues and National Cryographics, we'll be right back with you.



Strolen to the rescue!
Do not correct me, I know I am wrong.

EEk. Weird errors. Tried to update it. No joy in any browsers right now.

I never can understand how it works fine for so long and then, after not touching it for ages, it suddenly doesn't work. That defies common sense. Do bits have an expiration date?

Thanks for pointing it out and I hate that your first experience is a bug.

Typing normal html in the text block will fix it. I added break tags but you can surround it by <p> if you want. Will continue to mess with it and see what I can figure out.

Thanks!!

Fixed the editor bug so you can reformat as you desire now. Sorry about that, explained it in the bug thread but it was a good one. You just earned like 100+xp for finding that whopper. (to be added once we go final with this version)

Welcome Peppe.

Glad you jumped right into it and looking forwards to reading your stuff.

Thanks again everyone for the welcome and the help!
I have one more question: am I allowed to submit Ideas? it seems I can't...
Am I missing something?

When I click on Submit Idea the url changes from strolen.com/ideas/edit to strolen.com/ideas/view.

Is that working as intended, because I am level 2?
