We moved email providers and the new provider does not have authorization to send from the root domain. I'm still seeing the From address as Escapist Magazine <[email protected]> so you should be able to configure your filters to do the routing you want.
Sadly that is not reflected by what the reciever sees; we see it as sent by 'forums=[email protected]' so it seems I'll need to adjust the rule.

I think there's a bug in the search. When specifying to search 'this thread' it returns "An unexpected database error occurred. Please try again later." Searching for 'Rogue Legacy' as an example, If I search the What are you currently playing thread specifically it returns a white page and the error and I can't access the site for a couple minutes. But if I just search 'everywhere' it actually does give me results from that thread.

Also it'd be nice if the search didn't do this "The search could not be completed because the search keywords were too short, too long, or too common." If you could put quotes around a phrase and search for it exactly regardless of how common the words are, it'd be great.

Hello may I have my username changed? ty
Can you not just make a new account? You have like 4 posts so it's not like you are losing anything, and I'm guessing those are all just trying to get your username changed.

Apparently The Escapist is undergoing some management changes again, so I'm assuming things are going to be a little slow on the forum administration (more than usual) until things settle down.

Okay, so this has been bugging me for a while, and I've finally decided to make a post on it. When typing in the comment box, I can use keyboard shortcuts for things like bold, italics, and so on- but the italics shortcut will often not let me close off the italics (it turns back on when I continue typing), and I have to click the icon above the comment box to be able to type normally.

Yep, I'm no longer involved so unfortunately the tiny human behind this account won't be responding to requests. Till we meet again!

Ah, that's a shame. It's been real. Good luck in whatever your plans are now.

how do you get a legacy tag?
Posted in the legacy thread, like, 2 years ago. Don't know why so many people care about that badge when they clearly aren't going to come back and start posting regularly on the forums again.
