Hiya all. I just want to let people know we are aware of the issues happening with both Flash and HTML5 lately. I will just copy paste a previous comment by evn which also applies to these issues too

"Concerning the changes, we are still in transition and have almost no development happening lately. I hope we can resume it soon so that we can fix a lot of the things which do not function at least. There's a lot more to be done which doesn't particularly just make the website pretty. Unfortunately there's quite a lot of things that depend on having active development before we can move further with positive changes in terms of community. I am unable to assure you when, but can say that none of the feedback we have gotten (at least for me) falls on deaf ears."

Flash Login is only working for some people. Html5 is still completely down. Not really sure what's wrong, but some of those that had their information saved to 'Remember this computer' were able to come back on. There's still hardly anyone on at all, most likely until the situation has been resolved.

Will there ever be a way on html5 to make perfect lines like on flash by using line + holding shift?

Commented by Manti: There is a way to make 45/90 degree lines already. Hold Alt+shift while drawing a line.

HTML5 is actually working decently well for me in Chrome, I have considerably less lag while drawing than I did in Flash. I'm also loving the slight changes to the UI, especially the segments meter in boards! It's nice to have a visual reminder of when boards should be cleared for faster load times.

[Update: I'm having errors in all browsers each time I try to change the title or description of a photo. Also, is it possible to set profile pictures anymore? I can't find the option.]

Commented by Moderator: It's broken. RIP.

[Update 2: Found a way to set profile pictures! If you click to view an upload or pub and then remove "/gallery" from the URL, it takes you to a simplified version of the page where the old "Make this my profile picture" link can still be used. Clicking it successfully sets the picture and directs you back to your profile.]

I can't enter in HTML5 from chrome and IE11. Both are updated. Is this will be fixed or not?

Commented by Moderator: Please try using FireFox to see if you can enter.

I actually really like the HTML 5 update! Thank you guys for working so hard on it <3 I know it's tough to get all the bugs out.

Currently I'm using Chrome, Wacom intuos 4 tablet- and I can't get HTML 5 to work with the tablet. It'll work when I use my mouse (laptop) I can select different tools with the tablet pen- but when I try to draw- nothing.

Do I need to update something or use a different browser? Just curious if anyone is experiencing something similar! :)

Commented by Moderator: Try using Firefox, many users have issues using Chrome as well.

Gonna get hate but I hope flash stays down, in 2017 there's no need for outdated and insecure platform such as flash.
Just hope HTML5 can be tweaked a bit more.

Flash and HTML5 is currently working for login.

If you like using flash, please be aware that major web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, and Edge are now blocking flash, so if you're unable to login, just follow these instructions when using flash.

Google Chrome: Click on the i symbol surrounded by a circle, in the upper left corner of Google Chrome. Make sure that where it says "Flash" is set to "Allow" on the right.

Mozilla Firefox: Click on the thing that looks like a lego in the upper left corner of Firefox and select "Allow and Remember".

Hey so lately, for weeks now, I've been seeing one and the same scripter and last time I checked that was against the rules, they've gone from making their own boards to occupying the standard boards. How come nothing's done?
Commented by Manti: Can you please provide or pm us the offender's username so we can look into it? It would also be helpful if you already have evidence of the scripting that you could show us. For the next time that you feel like your reports or complaints about troublemakers have been neglected, please send us a support ticket as your message will much more likely be read there. Thanks~

Dororo means if you try to report a new user with their username, it says no user exists, so they can't be reported and we have to whisper mods to get it solved

Commented by Katrina: Can you get us some screenshots? Even if it is a false report, it would be just for us to see the glitch. Is it on Flash or HTML5? What Browser?

Any word on fixing the 'no user found' issue when reporting new users?

Commented by Katrina: Can you give us some more info on this? It's not a typing error is it? Simply someone typing in a nickname instead of a username can generate ''No User Found'' if there is no username under that name.

I would appreciate it if there could be stricter actions taken against users who harass others, especially with triggering content (such as rape, violence, hate speech, etc.). I'm aware of the /ignore function, however, I don't really understand why people with volatile behaviour should be allowed to keep harassing others instead of getting warned or banned.

I believe that a site with a chat function should have its chat moderated as well, and that toxic behaviour should be taken more seriously in order to promote a healthier community within iScribble.

Commented by becky: Hi Inspire, Im going to try be as transparent and as honest as I can on this matter. Things like hate speech are already dealt with the best we can, if users are directly harassing users in a hateful way we will try to stop this, but we can only attempt to put a stop to it on this site. On the other hand users may talk about these topics in an un-harmful way and unaware that it triggers other people. This is something we can't prevent. There are some things that are not tolerable on this site. However, some of these topics have a very fine line on what is and isn't okay, this also depends on the person.

Commented by becky: What may 'trigger' one user does not trigger the other. It's a really complicated situation because we can not monitor all the chats or give the kind of support you are requesting without enough internal/external structure. In some cases you or other users may have to use the /ignore function if you do not want to see certain things being said, please remember that all moderators here help for free and in their own time, it's impossible for us to monitor everything but we will do our best to catch up on these issues and try to make the best decisions for the users in question and the site as a whole.

Commented by becky: We do not have systems in place to remove what has been said. If you or other users are truly having issues with users like this then please provide some information on those user(s) so we can look into it. Chat logs help a great deal.

I greatly appreciate the help given to users across iScribble, especially since I know you guys are volunteers. It's just that I have noticed a few cases where there has clearly been inappropriate behaviour (trolling with sensitive topics, racial/homophobic slurs, etc.) and a mod has simply said "/ignore" and essentially "get over it", which has been frustrating for many users. I don't come here as often now, but was recently confronted with a similar issue (which was resolved after about half an hour of mod x user arguing), which made me remember previous conflicts where no action was taken to remedy toxic situations. I'm just wondering if there could be more concrete punishments like warning/silencing immediately after confirming that a user is intentionally provoking others with triggering content or hate speech.

For anyone having tablet problems, possible cause/solutions:

Commented by Bluestrings: Google Chrome version 55 now supports Pointer events.This means the flash version of iScribble in Chrome won't work on a tablet.You can try another web browser, use HTML5 client in Chrome, or turn off Windows Ink as described in my guide here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=...

Has there been a change where tablet monitors can't use iscribble? I used to be able to use my Cintiq just fine- I have been gone a few months. I've tried using mine and my friends, but it seems not to translate right? I mean- I can't click or draw anything with my pen when I'm on iscribble: not the brushes, pens, colors. However I can everywhere else i go. Please let me know if this is just me.

I feel like this website has lost its touch. One of the main points of this website is that users work together (or alone) with the end goal being to finish a gallery-worthy drawing. The game/OC boards have partially watered down that concept. The roleplay boards take away from that entirely. Proof? There are no roleplays in the gallery. Go ahead and see for yourself. Now the website is littered with boards that are filled with users who couldn't care less about creating a QUALITY piece. And no, those glorified stick drawings scattered throughout each and every roleplay board are not quality.

Sure, before the filters there was an issue with people roleplaying where they shouldn't but that was only due to the lazy and heavily biased moderation being done. Yeah, I realize that we are actually tyb's pet project, one that he obviously cares very little about. In a very pitiful attempt to take action, iScribble has seemed to put a band-aid on the issue? That is quite the slap in the face to more dedicated users who were actively filling the gallery with breathtaking pieces that made you use your imagination. The consequences of doing such is that a large number of skilled artists and regulars began to phase out. They don't even stop by for a visit anymore and iScribble has a terrible reputation because of it (not like tyb gives a darn). I mean, someone even decided it was terrible enough to commit a portion of their life to creating an Uncyclopedia page about it.

"But roleplaying takes imagination!" Yes, but it also requires a specific narrative to be produced in order to activate that imagination. The pieces I've seen in the gallery kick-start my imagination and tell a story WITHOUT NEEDING (near illegible) words. That is what differentiates a quality piece from...well, yeah.

I have no problem with roleplaying so there is no need to chalk up my motives to a bias leaning against roleplaying. I LOVE roleplaying. I love the OC boards and the game boards. Neither of which promote productivity but instead idle doodling. I have no issue with people coming here only to doodle. I have no issue with what the users decide to spend their time doing.

I DO have an issue with the website itself promoting it. I have an issue with a website that claims to be for art yet refuses to address the fact that it is actually a website for roleplaying drawings.

What exactly is the motive of iScribble? What are the goals? What incentive do skilled artists have anymore to come here to draw when there are better alternatives?

There are so many changes going on with the infrastructure, but for what? Make the website pretty but entirely ignore how it is run? That sounds like a recipe for disaster.

What do I hope to gain from this post? Nothing. It'll just fall on deaf ears like in the past.

Why did I make this post? Sunk cost fallacy.

Commented by evn: I understand the frustration, and hopefully we will work through a lot of the current issues and get iScribble to a point where we can have most if not all of our active users and any new/returning ones content. I have quite similar views concerning the state of the website, though I hope you will understand if I clarify a few things. iScribble is for both art and drawing, so while roleplaying does not produce any art, it's definitely a part of the community. Granted, we would like to encourage more to take and contribute to the gallery and there are (at least) some thoughts on how to do that. It's quite a lot to go through and this isn't the right place to do so, but I can be emailed or whispered if you want to know more concerning that.
Commented by evn: Concerning the changes, we are still in transition and have almost no development happening lately.

I am unable to assure you when, but can say that none of the feedback we have gotten (at least for me) falls on deaf ears. We may not reply to every feedback we get, and we still need to get better at being a cohesive team. We have limited resources and even less time, which I know lets the community down in many ways. Anyways, I hope you can get my intent from this rather brief reply. I do appreciate that you and many others continue to show support while we get through the current state of affairs

Makes sense... Thanks for the hard work
