I noticed today that the default tool to change font size gives:
[FONTSIZE=][/FONTSIZE]
I'm not sure if this can be changed, but maybe it would be better to have it give:
[FONTSIZE=px][/FONTSIZE]

The reason being, to inexperienced forum users, they may not realize that they need to specify px.

I asked about this to see if the text replacement can be done to add px into the code, however it looks like at this time there is not a way that we know of. Enabling both this option and a different font scaling option, or disabling the old option for a new one is also not an available choice, since it will break old posts.

For now, I have added to mouse-over tool-tip to elaborate to add the px, since I assume most users are using desktop to do their big posts still, and that may help alleviate some confusion.

This Pokémon can often be found alone in her room writing or reading. This is because she is an introvert who doesn’t feel like going outside today.
This might already be fixed, but I noticed a typo on the Alpha letter thingy. It’s been a while, so maybe someone else noticed it.

I don't know if this would necessarily be a "minor" suggestion as far as the backend tech goes, but, can we get an option to see all threads started by a user in their user profile?

Some people have a long series of Nuzlockes but don't have the list of link in their signature, so it'd be nice to be able to find the threads in their user profile. (Also applies to ROM Hacks and stuff like that).

Just to verify, are you able to see the button that says 'Find' on your profile, or is that just me? If it's a mod-only feature I can absolutely get it unlocked.

This Pokémon has too many ideas for their own good.
I know I’m able to see it! It would be nice if it were possible to make it a bit more inconvenient to find, though

Absolutely of the same mind here. Good news is: if the data already exists, I can probably finagle something on my own. Maybe.

The easiest solution here is changing the phrase from 'Find' to something more obvious. Any and all suggestions welcome, I really appreciate it.

Maybe something like "Search for messages by/from this member"? Or making it into two buttons with the fully spelled out options from the dropdown menu (basically getting rid of the latter).

idk if it helps but I know on LV it's spelled out fully a bit lower into the About section

Oh, I can see it, yeah.

I just didn't realize it would do what I was thinking of.

Yeah, I guess "Find" isn't the most intuitive name for that ... although to be fair, I'm not entirely sure what would be better. I guess taking it out of the dropdown would probably be better if it's possible?

Taking a poke around, I'm not familiar enough with the templates to unfurl the menu, but I did change it from 'Find' to 'Content/Threads' for now. It shouldn't effect any other phrases on the site, but if anyone sees a stray 'content/threads' button where it shouldn't be, just let me know.

(Let me know if this warrants its own thread.) Has anyone put thought into a print publication for Nuzlocke stories and comics? There could be a submission process, etc.

If there was interest in running a zine, Creative Content would be the best place to organize it. While I'd love to see one happen, and I think the forum has talent in abundance, a zine takes a certain kind of organizational skill, experience, and time among a host of people with a shared interest. (A big emphasis on responsibility)

If it were to happen, it would need to be community led, not staff led.

The most humble and modest braggart you will ever meet.
This is a very minor suggestion but one I think a lot of people would like.
Please add the symbol for in-game Pokemon currency (Or the Pokeyen) somewhere in the toolbar. Maybe in the smilies section?
I have genuinely gotten so sick of writing Pokedollars, Pokeyen or some other variation when I could just put the symbol there without having to copy-pasting it from Google.
Okay thanks.

Talk softly and slowly so you don't scare this gentle creature.
