ask the staff
if you have questions or suggestions or whatever here's the place to hit the staff members up! we wanted a thread that we could track to make sure to see all questions and get to them as quickly as possible, so if you have anything you need here's the place to let us know, and the staff members will be able to answer. <3

please allow staff members to answer this thread

first suggestion, woo!

uh, it's not a really large suggestion and might be seen as a little unnecessary, but for the http://skinny-love.net/index.php?showforum=101 board, would it be possible to make dubai as a main board alongside bangkok, seoul, tokyo, etc? the city itself is one of the most liberal / immigrant influenced locations in the middle east and one of the fastest growing economies in the world. idk, there just doesn't seem to be a main location there to represent the middle east and that makes me a little sad. :'c

sorry if this is unnecessary !

Posted by: kristen tuan Aug 1 2016, 12:59 AM
just kidan !

ty for the suggestion!! i tried my best to come up with a somewhat diverse range that i thought everyone would use! obviously we can't add every city, but we can add this one for you! i'm going to wait to add it until the css is complete for it (because the set up requires more than me just creating the forum) and until we can make an image for it! we just ask that you (and others) use the forum! if it goes mostly unused we will take the forum away later on (this goes for all the rping forums).

thaaaaank you! ( ◜◒◝ )♡
i'll be sure to live in that board give it respect! i appreciate it!

    this isn't really a skin issue because it's more of a preference but would it be possible to have the icon up top be a link to our profile?? or have our profile name somewhere to click on the sidebar?? c:

Posted by: i'm cassie fucking fitch Aug 1 2016, 07:21 AM
hey hun! the avatar in the corner actually is a link to your profile. it just doesn't work if you don't have one set. once you upload an avatar though, it will work!

Posted by: coral grimes Aug 1 2016, 07:22 AM
    lmao woOOPSSS thank you angelface xoxo

Posted by: rosalie daddario Aug 1 2016, 09:14 AM
hi this is just a suggestion! I was wondering if there could possibly be a space in the mini profile/custom profile where we could put our personal announcements like say we're going to be on hiatus for awhile kind of what the sig blurbs had on old cosl?

Posted by: i'm cassie fucking fitch Aug 1 2016, 09:17 AM
i like the idea. i will talk to ro about that. i am going to give her a little time before i have her fix anything since she worked really hard on the skin and she probably needs some down time!

Posted by: casey belcher Aug 1 2016, 09:23 AM
maybe las vegas and australia could be added as destinations? just a thought. :)

Posted by: chloe kardashian Aug 1 2016, 11:35 AM
hiiii, im not sure if this is possible. but would it be possible to have the custom posts gif and user profile gif be two separate fields. i just use a texture on my graphics that messes up if its not the exact size. if not its no big deal but i figured i would ask <3

Posted by: emma(ly) thompson Aug 1 2016, 12:43 PM
i know people are providing codes/using their own/making their own. but maybe a thread in the coding forum where those of use that are coding incapable can request certain codes? if there already is one then i'm blind and senile in my old age and ignore me.

Posted by: coral grimes Aug 1 2016, 03:51 PM
    can we get a last active thing somewhere in the mini or custom prof??

Posted by: 5 seconds of jessica Aug 1 2016, 03:57 PM
emma(ly) thompson
you can post the coding request in the coding / resource board (: it's not just for people to offer their codes but also as a place to request them.

Posted by: bobby Aug 1 2016, 04:03 PM
i noticed that you guys put in the built in links in the profile for trackers/requests and such since we don't have sigs anymore. but i also noticed that only one of them is customizable. for someone who doesnt ever put up myoa or specific face requests it makes those pretty useless and only allows us to have one link. is there any way to make it so we can label them all ourselves?

Posted by: ro is satan Aug 1 2016, 04:50 PM
coral grimes & rosalie daddario your prayers have been heard and profiles have been updated with both of your suggestions http://i.imgbox.com/tHejXvzf.png http://i.imgbox.com/tHejXvzf.png

thanks much!

bobby fields have been updated so you can now do as you please with them!!!

Posted by: marie mikaelson Aug 1 2016, 06:45 PM
    this isn't rly a big deal or anything but since we don't have sigs anymore, can we have a spot in the mini or custom with a completely free link that can go outside of cosl to our tumblr or s/t?

    is it also possible in the personal announcement spot to have bold text show up? i tried putting in the bold tags, but it didn't work so i removed them and idk i might be the only one that likes looking at the last date people put in for their update lmao.

    maybe also even a cute little post bbcode to where text is justified when we're posting in requests? idk i know i could just find a cute lil code to use but i'm lazy so i figured i'd ask!

Posted by: ro is satan Aug 1 2016, 07:12 PM
marie mikaelson we actually changed every single thing from the links, so you can basically link anything up there and title it however you want to reflect what you're linking.

as for the bold stuff in mini profiles i have no idea what's going on because it shows on profiles just fine, so i have to keep looking into it and make sure it works.

lastly, i'll ask cassie about the bbcode idea because i will for sure be coding some member group color friendly codes as well so there's a lot to do!!

Posted by: marie mikaelson Aug 1 2016, 07:17 PM
    it still shows up with the topic id so everything still links inside of cosl.

    no worries!! <33

    oooh that sounds fancy tbh.

    (also sry omg if any of my posts come off sounding bratty or me being a big stinker. i'm literally procrastinating on everything rn lmao. also can i just say again how fabulous this skin is?? and how glad i am that cosl finally moved to jcink. #praise)

Posted by: ro is satan Aug 1 2016, 07:33 PM
marie mikaelson truuuuuuuu i'm an idiot
also, you're not sounding bratty at all ok????? it's all good

Posted by: fall out moose Aug 1 2016, 07:56 PM
i know this isn't important to many people but i really
depended on this when i was mobile lurking but ummm
can we can a direct link to the cbox again? c: i would
super appreciate it!

Posted by: jay the boy wonder Aug 1 2016, 10:38 PM
I don't want to be that person, but if the forum "america" has rio and toronto in it technically shouldn't it at least be called "the americas"?

and maybe we could add vancouver, mexico city, kingston, montreal, sao paulo, lima, bogota, and buenos aires? idk it just seems weird it's called america and rio and toronto are in there when they aren't in america.

Posted by: ro is satan Aug 1 2016, 10:45 PM
jay the boy wonder what we're trying to aim for by adding those cities in america is to put an end to the idea that america represents only a country, when it could very well describe both north america and south america. in the majority of the world, "america" used to label both continents. we understand that might not be clear right away, which is why we've decided to make it a little clearer by adding a description to the forum.

as for adding new cities, for now we've decided to stick to toronto and río, and see if there could possibly be a use for more cities, given the fact that latin america is not always seen in the best of lights.

Posted by: undone buttons Aug 1 2016, 10:56 PM
as someone who is from Toronto that's just not true at all. America represents the united states. the Americas represents north and south. I have never met anyone who clumps them in all together and just calls north and south America "America". I completely agree with jay and I think you should change it to "the Americas" rather than just "America".

Posted by: ro is satan Aug 1 2016, 11:02 PM
undone buttons i am from argentina, and in the entirety of latin america, we are taught that america is a whole continent. we do not call it "the americas", we call it just america. i've discussed this with cassie and we've decided to keep it as america and explain what that stands for in the description of the subforum.

Posted by: cortnie fransexy Aug 2 2016, 12:10 AM
Idk if I'm the only one experiencing the problem or if I am just being super blond and can't figure it out- but I noticed when I'm on my phone (like now), that I can't track topics or edit my own posts. The options just don't show up for me. Obviously it isn't a huge issue bc I can just switch to desktop version momentarily if needed, but I thought I would bring it up! c:

Posted by: kristen tuan Aug 2 2016, 02:12 AM
cortnie fransexy -- you aren't the only one with the issue! it'll let me see the options on some threads but not on others. it was brought up earlier (in the skin issues thread), but we still haven't found a fix for it. <3

Posted by: ☆ kenz egerton Aug 2 2016, 04:00 AM
forgive me if i'm just not seeing it, but i was wondering if we
had a character dump subforum anywhere? :')

like, specifically for character skeletons/apps?
i know we have other development forums in the character
junkyard, so i was curious about where those would go.

Posted by: i'm cassie fucking fitch Aug 2 2016, 08:41 AM
☆ kenz egerton i had meant to add something for that before we opened but forgot. i went ahead and added a forum titled "character development" where you can put apps and stuff like that or whatever you want there!

marie mikaelson jcink updated their admin cp today, and now we have bold for the custom profile fields and it'll show in your mini profile and profile http://i.imgbox.com/tHejXvzf.png

    hella heart eyes over cosl being on jcink now bc of how great jcink is lmao

Posted by: indominus bexx Aug 2 2016, 08:35 PM
hello friends! so, i'm having some trouble with bolding and the mini profile. whenever i try to bold the date i have written in my little blurb, it unbolds the names i have bolded for what faces i like to use. then, when i remove the bold, the faces still don't look bolded? so there's just something funky going on with bolding and the mini profile!

Posted by: ro is satan Aug 2 2016, 08:38 PM
indominus bexx if you give me a moment, i'll check the entire admin cp all over again because the new jcink feature is too new but it should be working fine since it's not beta anymore. if i find something quickly, i'll edit this post in with all the info, so keep an eye here bb

UPDATE: the new jcink feature is interferring with custom profiles (as expected) so we have to decide whether we want to keep the bold for the miniprofiles or the profiles.

Posted by: ro is satan Aug 2 2016, 09:02 PM
fall out moose a direct cbox link was added to the links right under the header!!!

Posted by: oh kay Aug 3 2016, 10:57 AM
would it be possible to get the gif in the custom posts and the gif in the custom profile in two separate profile fields? the shapes are so different that it's hard to position in a way that makes them both look good. i also tend to use a texture that messes up when things are auto-resized.

Posted by: ro is satan Aug 3 2016, 03:47 PM
oh kay you got it!!! sorry i didn't get to it earlier!!

Posted by: sue the cat mom Aug 3 2016, 04:27 PM
hey guys! i noticed that the personal announcements spot cuts off in the member profile. is there a way to increase the character limit there? (if not, no worries, i know absolutely zero about coding so lolol i defer to y'all)

Posted by: krista starr ★ Aug 3 2016, 04:30 PM
can we get a list of what hexcodes are already being used in the cbox added to the points thread?

Posted by: ro is satan Aug 3 2016, 04:46 PM
sue the cat mom i think it should be good now? it should scroll like it does on my profile & mini-profile (i was testing so don't mind the lorem ipsum lmao)

krista starr ★ we'll have one soon!!

Posted by: caleigh . Aug 3 2016, 08:04 PM
could we get the rest of the emojis added pls

also i've noticed a few guests / new members ask like where to post/find requests, and where the codes are. and while i know there's a guide up that links everything maybe adding one or two more links to the topbar with like 'requests' 'codes' like in similar non-cosl jcink sites might make it a little more user friendly to newcommers? just a suggestion

Posted by: marie mikaelson Aug 3 2016, 10:56 PM
    i was wondering if it'd be possible for members to register their name in the cbox??

    mostly bc if you buy a colorful name, if someone else has the same alias, you'll be stuck with their color, which would suck if you don't like the color the other person is using for their cbox name. it'd also help lessen some confusion since there are so many repeating aliases bc people can just add an extra letter or s/t to their name to distinguish themselves~

that way it's accessible for those of us on mobile too!~

Posted by: i'm cassie fucking fitch Aug 4 2016, 12:55 PM
krista starr ★ it looks like it's working for me??

reezy taught me ♡ we actually already added it. it's in the little link icons, the chat bubble!

Posted by: reezy taught me ♡ Aug 4 2016, 01:06 PM
i'm cassie fucking fitch hahaha oh i meant like as a redirect forum on the board so it shows up on jcink's mobile layout? cuz when you have the desktop version up on your phone it's not really user friendly most of the time

Posted by: krista starr ★ Aug 4 2016, 01:38 PM
i'm cassie fucking fitch
for me it's just orange.


Posted by: elle loves eggos Aug 4 2016, 01:57 PM
could there possibly be a section in general chat/advertisements for something like off site character ads/staff requests? just cause in the past i have made some awesome rp partners and having plots here but sometimes people may want longer plots / larger worlds?

Posted by: rachel morgan! Aug 4 2016, 06:36 PM
i rly didn't want to ask b/c i feel like we're all requesting lots of things butttttt...
i may be blind but the read posts in my inbox look exactly the same as my replied
to posts and well, i think we used to have three different colors (read, unread, and
replied to). it would be reallyyyyyy helpful if we could have a separate color or s/t
so i know if i've just read a pm or if i've actually replied (lmao i'm so forgetful).

Posted by: i'm cassie fucking fitch Aug 4 2016, 06:37 PM

reezy taught me ♡ sorry about that. i went ahead and added it in the getting started area!

krista starr ★ i will have to have ro is satan to look at it because i am honestly not sure why that is happening. it's showing up orange for me now too.

elle loves eggos i went ahead and added that section for you. it's under general chat.

rachel morgan! i will let ro is satan take a look at that and try to get her to fix that for you!

also a quick note to everyone. we have set up a bbcode for centered replies like this one that i am using right here. all you have to do is the following when you want to use it just take out the stars:

[*post]type stuff here.

just press enter to go to the next line.[*/post]

if you have any questions, let us know!

Posted by: ro is satan Aug 4 2016, 06:49 PM
krista starr ★ from what i can tell (with the help of chrome's magical abilities), this issue has to do with the gif more than the coding. the background-cover property is interferring with the gif itself from what i can tell, but it's only happening with your gif in particular and not anyone else's?? so it is possible that it could be the gif

rachel morgan! i went ahead and let the .wrapmini display, and from what i can tell we do have 2 colors for posts. we have green for new posts/pms, and gray for read posts/pms

Posted by: rachel morgan! Aug 4 2016, 06:59 PM
ro is satan you're totally right...i was saying i thought on old cosl we actually had three different
colors. there was an extra color for things you had read + replied to. i liked it because i often forgot
to save copies of my sent messages/didn't want my boxes to fill up too fast. does that make sense?
totally cool if you think i should suck it up or you can't add another color, just wanted to try!

Posted by: ro is satan Aug 4 2016, 07:01 PM
rachel morgan! if i could, i would totally add it, but jcink only has unread & read, so there is nothing we can do to add something else, i'm sorry http://i.imgbox.com/QIXgSRSE.png

Posted by: rachel morgan! Aug 4 2016, 07:02 PM

Posted by: asia gronkowski Aug 4 2016, 10:45 PM
it's not very important / the end of the world but: can you make it so the subforums show when your'e on the main page? if that makes sense. i just find it easier instead of having to click and see what's in there etc (:

Posted by: ro is satan Aug 4 2016, 11:54 PM
asia gronkowski in the beginning of this skin, my plan was putting the subforums somewhere, but some of the forums have SO MANY subforums it made the entire thing look a little wonky, so we decided to take them out, but i wouldn't rule it out for any of the next skins tbh

Posted by: just kidan ! Aug 8 2016, 07:22 PM
would it be possible to make a forum specifically for interest checks?
like, sometimes you might have a neat ass group idea or maybe want to do an idea based off something specific, but you're not really sure it's going to pick up. so you could post a sort of vague idea / general synopsis to see if anyone else is feeling it before you end up wasting time making an idea no one is interested in rping. i feel like it might be a bit more organized in an actual board as well rather than having people frantically wave their arms to the cbox seeing if anyone's interested. + a good chunk of the site's members don't use the cbox. lmk what you think!

Posted by: rosalie daddario Aug 9 2016, 08:00 PM
this is just a suggestion, but is there anyway we can bring back personalized group verses from back in the day (where the group has its own forum to make organization easier). maybe they can be bought through points and members in the group can have the option of pooling their points together to contribute towards the point total needed?

Posted by: coral grimes Aug 10 2016, 09:32 AM
ever since the site came back from jcink being down last night - when i click on skinny love up top, or the banner, it for some reason takes forever and then gives me a "this site can't be reached - skinny-love.net took too long to respond" page. but if i type in skinny-love.net it goes just fine. not sure if anyone else is having this issue or knows if it's something on jcink's end but it's really annoying js js XDDD

edit: it is working w/ the coskinnylove url in case anyone else has a similar issue lmao

Posted by: i'm cassie fucking fitch Aug 11 2016, 08:20 AM

just kidan ! that will have to be something i need to think about it. just because the request area is basically already a space to kind of see if someone is interested in things. let me just have some time to think and discuss with staff.

rosalie daddario that is something that i was considering when moving over to the new server and it is still something. i am so busy atm with work, being sick and the wedding but i will have some time off after my wedding so i can potentially set all of that up again. so just be patient with me!

coral grimes i am not having any issues with that at all so i don't know if it's a jcink thing or maybe you just need to clear your cache but i definitely don't think it's anything on our end.


Posted by: just kidan ! Aug 11 2016, 01:32 PM
i'm cassie fucking fitch
that's fine! i know that the request area is basically a big interest check, but i figured it could be a bit discouraging to write out all the details of an idea and no one end's up biting anyways. but i figure using the cbox to gauge simple "hey anyone wanna do xyz plot" is good enough in the end. it's not a hella serious req. so you could just ignore me xD

Posted by: rosalie daddario Aug 11 2016, 05:52 PM
i'm cassie fucking fitch sounds good !! hope you feel better and congrats on the wedding!

Posted by: justin Aug 13 2016, 09:44 PM

can we maybe have a thread in the help forum or important bit where we have a list of everyones coloured name and hex code so we dont double up. i mean we can double up but maybe people want to avoid it or idk.

also that we can then request a change there?

Posted by: i'm cassie fucking fitch Aug 15 2016, 09:45 AM
sailor senshi caroline we already have that in the points forum and if you want to change your color, you just post there or pm me.

double post ha ha i'm a nerd

when you go to view someone's topics, can it be sorted by last post rather than start date? i use that to see my requests / tracker / etc and i know it was sorted by last post date on if so it was super easy to see what's been posted in and what hasn't!!

i third this! maybe not with this skin as i know a lot of people have used it for what it's for, but i know others have just put the same in both boxes. i think it'd be a great thing to add in the future though!

harley quinn in the meantime if you right click on your profile or anything else that's the membergroup color and inspect element it should show you in there x

double post ha ha i'm a nerd

when you go to view someone's topics, can it be sorted by last post rather than start date? i use that to see my requests / tracker / etc and i know it was sorted by last post date on if so it was super easy to see what's been posted in and what hasn't!!


i think this got lost in the posts so???

if someone never plans on using their points for anything or they have a lot of points and they were willing to give some to someone else, is there a way that we could donate them?

yesss i've been wondering about this as well!

Posted by: i'm cassie fucking fitch Aug 29 2016, 10:00 PM

as far as the sorting thing goes, that isn't something i am sure about and maybe ro is satan has an answer.

as for the points thing, we are not going to allow points to be given to another person as they are something you are earning and are able to spend. sorry if that is an inconvenience to anyone.

here i am, i aM ALIVE
and, as far as i know, that is not something we can control? that's how it comes with cfs and there is nothing i can do to change it because that's how the script gets the posts & threads!

could the personal boards be organized alphabetically?

Posted by: i'm cassie fucking fitch Sep 8 2016, 07:07 PM
ad astra per krista ★ as far as the actual personal boards, no we're not going to put those in alphabet order just because that would mean we would have to reorder the forums each time that someone wants one. as far as the forums themselves, if the member who is asking for the forum requests that we do that, we will -- as we have already. carly is way less lazy than me and did it so lol she will do that if she wants but it's not a gaurantee.

Posted by: what's your damage, carly? Sep 8 2016, 07:12 PM
ad astra per krista ★ except the anal person inside me was really annoyed they weren't alphabetized so i went ahead and did it. woops. (:

Posted by: ad astra per krista ★ Sep 8 2016, 07:20 PM
what's your damage, carly? omg thank you so much. it was driving me crazy lmao.

Posted by: krista, what's good? Sep 14 2016, 06:19 AM
this isn't really a pressing issue, but something to keep in mind for future skins. it would be great if the cbox could be toggled without also toggling the alert bar. the cbox can be distracting much of the time but i rely on alerts to know when i owe posts, so i never toggle it because i don't want to miss things. again, not a huge issue and i think it's been mentioned before. just something to keep in mind!

Posted by: princess sarah Sep 16 2016, 10:13 AM
okay. this is not pressing in the slightest and basically me just being slightly anal, but is there any way someone could make the "asia" forum name not capitalized? with the skin you can't see it but when I'm on mobile my phone can't handle loading the site not on mobile and asia is the sole forum that's capitalized.

again, not a vital issue and not pressing. but just something that might be nice for continuity's sake.

xoxo i love you don't hate me?

Posted by: lilah posey Sep 24 2016, 07:58 AM
quick question since i seem to miss mods on a lot since i work so much lately lmao. my hex code or the cbox is super similar to someone else and it kinda bother me. i haven't used my one free change over from when i first purchased it but it certainly isn't "right after" i bought it anymore. can i still change it? or should i post to repay to change it?

Posted by: ro is satan Sep 24 2016, 07:36 PM
lilah posey you definitely don't have to repay if you still haven't used your free change!! you can just leave the new hex code in the points thread so it can be changed as soon as possible!

Posted by: krista, what's good? Oct 3 2016, 10:29 AM
for the custom code sets you can buy w/ points: who codes those?

spooky krista sorry for the delay, work has been kicking my ass :( it depends on who is available at the time. if the person has a preference as to what staff member they want, i can see if they are available to code them something at the moment.

When you accept ads, you reply below to say guests can bump every seven days, but guests don't have permission to reply to ads. Can this be fixed please?

where can we request name changes? i thought i knew at one point but it's slipped my mind

Posted by: kay Oct 16 2016, 09:35 AM
alleycat go to your controls section and on the left-hand side where all the options are, there should be an option about changing username or smth. i can't remember exactly what it says bc im mobile rn! but ya just go there and you can enter the new username

kay thank you so much!

is there anyway we can pin topics in our own/personal boards? i'm an organised freak but ... it's not a massive deal if not. idk how much of a pain it'll be to sort out so i just wondered if it would be easy to change or not?

Posted by: cassie in the woods Oct 19 2016, 09:40 AM
harley quinn yeah, just post in mod action thread which threads you want pinned and i will do it. i also added that you can buy extra forums in your personal boards for 3000 points each now.

cassie in the woods awesome, thankyou!

this is silly I'm sure but are rotating avatars available for members, or just staff members? if it's possible for me, how do i implement this? ty <3

Posted by: trace redfield. Jan 9 2017, 02:40 AM
phi beta hi! it's something anyone can do so hopefully the staff is okay with me responding to this! you can use various websites. i personally use randimg.net (although i'm not using it currently) but i know imgweave is another one?

Posted by: damn, wyatt! Jan 9 2017, 03:01 AM
phi beta trace redfield.

the only issue with randimg.net is that they use imgur to host their images -- which as far as i know, imgur still has jcink banned because of roleplayers hotlinking to images (something not allowed in imgur's TOS). signavatar.com is an option, as well as imagerotation.com -- though i can't speak for how well either works, as i've never used them personally.

edit: imgweave.com is a really good option, too.

Posted by: marie mikaelson Feb 24 2017, 01:00 AM
tbh i'm posting this idea on all the sites i'm active on lmao.

anyways, with aim getting rid of statuses and most people switching to discord, it got me thinking. what if cosl had a discord server??? you could set up multiple text channels where people could drop links, use one to post statuses if they want, etc. on the site i admin, we have one and it runs smoothly. i have a good amount of discord knowledge so i'd be more than happy to assist in setting up a discord channel for cosl if this is something the staff team would like to pursue. <3

i just love discord and i think that a cosl server could help bring people together tbh especially since there won't be anymore aim statuses, which is a feature that has been highly utilized.

Posted by: doe, a dear Mar 8 2017, 04:47 PM
v belated but i want to second marie's suggestion for a discord server!!!! it would be hella.

Posted by: be quiet, wyatt. Mar 8 2017, 05:25 PM
just want to jump in and third it! considering aim doesn't even work for a lot of the people i talk to anymore, discord would be a fantastic way to not only bring those who regularly use cosl closer together (and hopefully help combat the idea of cliques, since i know there are still some folks that think cliques run rampant on cosl) but it would also be a great place to drop links for requests so they aren't being posted in the cbox as much, initiate group plots, etc. idk i don't really think i explained what's in my head that well but l o l basically i just think it would be really fantastic.

Posted by: doe, a dear Mar 8 2017, 08:27 PM
just wanting to specifically echo what wyatt said, having a specific channel to drop links (with a lil description maybe) instead of it being part of the ~main chat would be super great.

Posted by: i'm cassie fucking fitch Mar 8 2017, 08:36 PM
discussing this right now

Posted by: (wish)ful thinking Jun 13 2017, 04:55 PM
I've been looking for some sort of explanation of what the MYOA is. I would hate to assume it's one thing and find out it's not that at all? Could we have an explanation added to the newbs guide? Or have I missed it the explanation entirely?

Posted by: melissa Jun 13 2017, 05:44 PM
hiiii (wish)ful thinking so an myoa is 'make your own adventure' and basically a member will reply with what type of ship (fxm, mxm, fxf, etc.), no go faces, triggers, and what type of thread (comm or rf generally). basically, you just post a starter without discussing the plot or characters with the other person and it sort of builds on it's own essentially. hope this answers your question!

Posted by: (wish)ful thinking Jun 13 2017, 09:46 PM
Thank you melissa. That does help a lot!

Posted by: it's brittney bitch Jun 22 2017, 01:38 PM
hi okay so this is coming like... five years too late since i've been on cosl since, essentially, the beginning. anyway! i have only recently noticed in the rules (idk if this was added in with the new version of cosl or what) that offensive names aren't allowed. obviously, i'm aware of this lol. HOWEVER, after thinking about it, i realized that my username could potentially be offensive? i just wanted to ask the admins to see what they think about it and if i should change it? i've had this username for a few years now and no one has said anything to me (which makes me think maybe the slur part of the rule was added recently). but! i don't want to offend anyone and since cosl is such a large, diverse community i wanted to check in here first because, while it may not be offensive to me or those i write with, the admins may think someone on the board could be offended? i'd like to keep the username, but i'm definitely not opposed to changing if i have to. thanks!

Hi everyone!

I'm new to this site and I've been trying to spend some time navigating around it, get a feel for how it works. the newbie thread was really helpful so thank you for posting that!

I had just a few questions, if that's alright :)

Where does one post a crackship?


Thank you for your patience and your help!

Posted by: you go becky coco. Jun 30 2017, 09:37 PM

not an admin sooooo pls delete this if you wish to, but crackships are located and posted http://skinny-love.net/index.php?showforum=9 and if you need any code for them or anything, they are all located http://skinny-love.net/index.php?showforum=74 by awesomesauce members http://i.imgbox.com/8btdIDwZ.png

it's brittney bitch thank you for asking and for your concern for other members! your username is actually fine. i spoke with cassie, and common curse words such as bitch and fuck are fine to use. we are more concerned with keeping racial slurs and slurs related to sexuality out of usernames. i tried to make the rules a little less vague on that! hope that makes sense!

Posted by: maddie Jul 10 2017, 07:00 PM
is there, perhaps, any way we could get a tiny bit more autonomy for the personal boards? i completely understand why we can't create topics (since we buy those with points) but as far as moving threads around to different subforums, taking them out, deleting extra ones i don't need, etc, it's just a lot that i feel could be done with the individual instead of how frequently i have to ask a mod to do it, it just seems unnecessary. it's okay if not, ty! http://i.imgbox.com/8btdIDwZ.png

Posted by: cassie palvin. Jul 11 2017, 06:46 PM
maddie we set you up as a mod for your personal board so now you should be able to do things within it now. that should help.

Posted by: maddie Jul 11 2017, 06:49 PM
cassie palvin. you're an angel! i seriously just today accidentally made the same topic in there twice so it helps so much more than you know. thank you, seriously.

Posted by: courtney Jul 16 2017, 03:21 AM
hi, this is sort of an add-on to maddie's question --- or maybe technically a follow-up ?? basically just wondering if there are any plans for all members who buy a personal board to be mods on that board for easier access to organisational tasks/everything that she mentioned? if possible, i'd like to have the same powers on my personal board and sub-boards.

also, how would i go about changing the sub-boards that i have? i purchased them with specific plans that i'm no longer planning on carrying out but i don't exactly want to have them just sitting there or get deleted and waste the points, so would that be something i could ask for in the mod action thread? i'm just talking about renaming existing sub-boards.

thanks!

Posted by: cassie palvin. Jul 16 2017, 10:32 AM
courtney i can go ahead and give you mod access to your personal development forum as well. as for the names of your subforums, you would have to go to the mod action thread and request to have them renamed.
