First off, love the look of the new reader and the new features are very cool.

I noticed a couple of things just in my cursory glance through.  The first is that marked messages aren't appearing correctly.  There is no tab in the new viewer to easily reach my currently marked messages.

Ah; yes, this is an oversight that will be rectified Soon™.

As well, marked messages seem to be removed from the "Today" tab once they are marked.  They re-appear once unmarked.

...That's a bit odd.

The other thing that immediately jumped out at me is that the filters "All types - messages - reports - events - orders - OOC" are missing.  This was a super useful tool to quickly find relevant messages and I hope it will be included again soon.

My hope was that the customizable tab filters (once the filter-builder is more accessible) will be able to make that unnecessary.

However, it's also possible that some people will always want those, at least on some tabs; if that proves to be the case, then I may add an option to include it per-filter (aka per-tab).

I'll keep looking around and messing with it and update the thread as I find anything else worth mentioning.  Excited for this and the new writer to launch!

Glad to hear it! ;D

Spoke with Laststar Family (Cody on Discord), Haguns Family (Haguns on Discord) about additional problems we discovered, specifically with the global RP channel.

Once an RP is viewed, it is no longer viewable once off the page.  Similarly, attempting to access prior posts using the time filters (last week, all dates, etc.) result in Syntax errors, and the posts cannot be accessed.

The errors were: 


SyntaxError: Unexpected token in JSON at position 1316

Restoring 60 bytes from yesterday 3...

Last Week:

SyntaxError: Unexpected token in JSON at position 1311

Restoring 60 bytes from week 3...

All Dates:

SyntaxError: Unexpected token in JSON at position 1310

Restoring 60 bytes from all 3...

Additionally, it seems like there is a problem with viewing messages from other realms in the global RP channel.  My character in Perdan can see the post that Laststar (also in Perdan) made, but cannot see the post that Haguns (Yssrgard) mentions that he made recently as well.

Edit:  Haguns seems to be able to see Laststars, the issue may be that Haguns posted his a day prior to my viewing, and thus does not load for me to see.  An issue of timing rather than of realm.  This has already been reported to the bugtracker.
