    Also, while we're here, this achievement stuff seems pretty buggy at the moment.. I get like 5-10 of these a day right now and when tapped they don't even make sense, like "you received a reaction" for Level 60. 🤔

    The panel reserved for an ad at the bottom of the page (browser) keeps getting more annoying.

    It was annoying when it first showed up. It's annoying that it is so coy about showing up, not just showing up, but waiting for me to scroll the screen before it becomes visible. The "X" to dismiss it waits one to 13 seconds before showing up. Sometimes the panel is wider than the screen, so I have to scroll left to expose the "X", to get the panel out of my face.

    NOW the "X" is in its own little square, perched above the upper right corner of the panel, so I have to be careful to scroll the page so there is no button or link close to the "X", or I will be yanked somewhere I don't
    want to go.

    And just try to ignore it. See how far you get before it creeps up and blocks your view.

      Truncated special titles appear to be getting fixed today! 🙌
      Yay, not that I want to send me flowers but I send flowers to myself still 😜, there were 66 accounts to manually edit and then inform members about this change. Yea there were not other solutions than doing it manually.... 😭

      I'm happy to have contributed to this and make disappear the truncated tiles. We have 50 char maximum allowed for it so it was not easy to find a good and consistent compromise for everyone and every case.

      BTW, no one forced me, I was fine to volunteer for this task.

      For me, my 1 Year Member achievement shows up, but my 2, 3, 4, and 5 Year Member ones do not. This has been a consistent issue for me for at least a month. In the meantime, I see other members (even throughout this thread) proudly displaying their 5 Year Member achievement badge.
      "osm0sis": Maybe this issue with displaying achievements in posts should be added to the bug list.
      It is the same for me and many user ATM. Still work in progress. So please be patient.

      "osm0sis": Maybe this issue with displaying achievements in posts should be added to the bug list.
      Yes, we should have a dedicated list or forum for achievement system bugs and feature requests (e.g. like for the new xda app)!
      I hope that it will be created as soon as the xenforo admins and devs are "finished" with this work in progress.

      Yes, obviously. I've played with any combination of ticking and unticking to no avail. I forgot to say that explicitly.
      I also tried nearly everything, but does not work for me either. Was just a kind of "worth a try" (as @the_scotsman tried to explain already in his post above).
      In the past, some strange actions in special sequence could solve a few issues. Just to name one: "Achievement Hunter" blocking some users (like me) from using different features (posting, searching, giving and receiving reactions, etc.) of the xda forum!

      ... Posts #3,201 and #3,202 exactly mirror my issue. Just because you have the 5 Year badge showing up doesn't mean the rest of us can.
      Yes, some users can select/show thosse achievements, and others not. I assume that this "weird" behavior is the cause that those issues could not be solved yet.

      My summary:
      Achievement system is still work in progress and a kind of "Beta" version.
      As I think that is might have a positive effect on many user's activity in xda forums, it is worth to be fixed. But we have to wait for it to be done.

      Maybe truncated long forum names are next? 😁🤞

      Thanks. We are happy to have you as moderator on this forum (y)
      Thank you very much 👍👍👍
      It's a real pleasure for me to give back to xda this way.

      I assume you selected the 5 year one in options? Maybe try unticking all of them, then go back and choose the 5 year one?

      On 3/11/2021 at around 10am New York time, XDA will be upgrading our forum software to XenForo 2.2 which brings a bunch of new improvements, like a new thread preview tool, a Device Inventory tool to show off which phones you use, a most-thanked widget in every thread to easily spot the most important posts, plus a host of other new feature you can read about here. Not every feature of 2.2 will be available/active on XDA from day one, but we'll roll more things out soon as we settle in. :cool:

      Please use this thread to post about bugs, issues, or overall comments. If reporting a bug or issue, be sure to tell us about your configuration (device, browser, OS) and the steps to reproduce the issue. Screenshots help!

      In addition, later today we'll be updating the XDA app to work with 2.2. :cowboy:

      Known Bugs/Regressions:
      1. Advanced forum user max title length is too short, truncating them (e.g. "Senior Recognized Developer / Recognized Contribut"). Fixed 06/18 https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...d-comments-here.4245677/page-16#post-85203961
      2. Long forum names are truncated (e.g. "Android Software and Hacking General [Developers O").
      3. Thanks/Likes counts are reduced for most users, sometimes dramatically, seemingly from Aug 29 - Dec 2; possibly related to posts reverting to older versions.
      4. Various old forum emojis aren't mapped to new unicode ones, and ones in old posts that do exist (e.g. :cowboy:) don't display.
      5. Broken redirects from old links for many threads/posts.
      6. Disabling Alert in Preferences forces Mobile App Push enabled, one should be able to disable both.
      7. "Unfurl"ed URL links to posts sometimes show a preview of the OP instead of the correct post (e.g. [URL unfurl="true"]https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/welcome-to-xda-2021.4197018/post-84073623[/URL]
        ==
        )
      8. Colored/underlined user names to denote advanced forum users (e.g. Moderators/Admins and Recognized Contributors/Themers/Developers).
      9. Posts containing only quotes and no new text should be disallowed again.
      10. Ability to subscribe to an entire forum is missing for some forums.
      11. XDA Wiki pages are missing.
      12. [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] functionality is broken and pics lost.
      13. Shell scripts are detected and rejected as attachments, even if renamed as .txt files.
      14. Search "this category" option never shows any results when used.
      15. Recognized Developers can't moderate their own threads anymore.
      16. Missing/broken legacy devices in Device Inventory (e.g. Galaxy Nexus is listed when you search but fails when you attempt to add it).
      17. Missing setting to receive emails for mentions and/or quotes.
      18. Reaction Score doesn't match between profile and "All" under Reactions Received.
      19. DevDB secondary thread contributors have completely lost access to updating these threads.

      @svetius @bitpushr @MikeChannon @the_scotsman @Audentio

      Can you please add .tar.gz, .tgz, .tar.xz, .txz, etc. to the accepted attachment extension list? I'm trying to upload AIK-Linux v3.8 here and this is a bit of an annoying last minute snag. :p

      Please also look into allowing uploading simple shell scripts again. These used to be allowed at least when renamed to .sh.txt but currently they still get detected and blocked.

      This is a developers and power users forum, you would think these things would already be allowed! :)
      (y)I have added those extenstions.
