A rolling to-do list where we can centralize all gripes about the new site in one place. Beige will work through suggestions posted here in a (hopefully) timely fashion, as we work through our growing pains.

RESOLVED: Profile bug for favourite genres/whatcha playin'

The fields for favourite genres and games you're currently playing don't accept certain characters at the moment -- including commas. This makes listing more than one thing somewhat troublesome!

e.g. I tried to list my favourite genres as "JRPGs, visual novels and adventures" and it complained; "JRPGs" is fine, as is "JRPGs visual novels and adventures", but my proofreader's eyes won't let me submit the latter out of sheer pride. :)

Fixed this. The fields were set to "single text field" which had some fairly rigorous validation in place. I've changed them to "textarea" with no validation required.

Unfortunately, it was not possible to simply change the field type; I had to delete the old fields and recreate them, so if you had this information on your profile previously, you'll need to re-enter it in the new fields.
