Hi, hello, welcome!
You can just call me "Sax". I'm an old Gaian who has been on here for too long and knows too many things. Feel free to ask me various questions about the site, and if I don't know the answer, I can at least point you in the right direction.

Otherwise, I'm kind of a quiet person. I don't accept random friend requests, and I don't usually respond to random "chit-chat-type" messages.

Profile Bug Tracker

... to raise awareness

  • May 30, 2019
    Profile media panel has been upgraded to support Youtube's HTML5 player.
    Note: This change only affects the Current/v2 template

    Results:
    • All other media players (flash-based) have ceased functioning
    • New Youtube player strips all parameters aside from autoplay
    • Autoplay does not actually work (probably because someone just copied the coding from the forum [youtube] embed tag)
    Please upvote and/or post in this thread to support improving/fixing this change.
  • End of 2018
    After a very rough transition to cloud servers, it was discovered that the Recent Visitors panel on the Current/v2 template was broken in the transition. The panel will record names, but it immediately wipes them within a few minutes.
    - Fixed, as of June 4th, 2019 Staff Update
  • January 2018
    After the staff solved an issue with the media panel malfunctioning on the Classic/v1 template, a secondary issue appeared where all of the default Classic themes (Classic, Blocks, Grunny, and Custom) had ceased to function properly. When selecting any one of these templates, the result will be that only the "Classic" theme CSS applies. This isn't too big of an issue for Classic/v1 coders, as the "Classic" theme is still able to be customized via CSS... but it did result in many "Custom" theme codes to slightly break.
  • Pre-2014
    "Drag & Drop" functionality of the Current/v2 editor with regards to panel movement is severely bugged out. When users attempt to drag a single panel, they end up dragging the entire column of content, resulting in duplicating panels and various errors. Not entirely sure when this bug started, but it has grown progressively worse over the years and gotten to the point that it is almost impossible to avoid, no matter your browser or settings.
Note that this only covers "unresolved" issues with the Gaia Online profile system. Bugs which have been fixed or certain features which have been disabled over the years are not listed here, as they are redundant.

Have an issue that wasn't covered here? Send me a comment/PM about it!
I may be able to help you fix things... or it may just be another thing to add to this list.
