I have noticed that the forum image viewer always blows out the highlights of pics, and I think it also unnecessarily resizes them when viewing at "100%".  Is this something that can be fixed?

Is the Chat on the forum really necessary? It seems to me that it's now redundant compared to past times, since everybody who is into this sort of thing (chatting) is on Discord. True the Chat is not really harming the website by merely existing in its little left-hand corner, but it may be worth it to perhaps move it to a more noticeable position in the forum, perhaps popping up fully expanded on the left side of the screen. A little intrusive maybe, but it may encourage more use and you could ex it off. It might even cut down on redundant threads.

As of now, it is only being used by bewildered new users who treat it as a interactive technical support. If that is how you want it, then at least have the decency to rename it "SE Technical Support" and nominate me and Marko S as Space Engine IT Specialists.

There's an error in the manual page "Scenario Scripts". The "Fly" command is referred as "Move" in the description, same discrepancy in the next "StopFly" command.

Awhile back I saw someone in the newest member section be a beta tester, how can he be one if he just joined back then?

Probably because he's a Steam beta tester that never joined the forum until recently. The forum is not the only place from where beta testers were recruited.

The vast majority of beta testers I added through Steam.

Here's a suggestion regarding the Forum rules page, specifically the "10 posts" rule:

Yea, thanks for that. I looked again at the rules and it was indeed on the 8th line. It's not very eye catching, and if every new user keeps asking, maybe put this in as a message somewhere when you first create the account? Maybe an info box the first time you log in or something. Just my suggestion.

I've noticed there is quite a bit of homophobia rampant within the community, especially on Discord. Can anything be done about it?

Sure it can, by pointing out posts or users violating Discord guidelines to SpaceEngine Discord moderators and/or staff.
Unfortunately moderators can't always be there 24/7 sifting through posts.

Despite the fact that a mature community should be able to police themselves and hold to higher standards, there's bound to be something offensive passing under the nose. SpaceEngine Discord moderators will take action if those cases are brought to their attention, that is by communicating with staff.

Hey, does anyone else here have this problem? Ever since Jan. 12th this year I've had to do two logins in order to sign into the forum. When I press the "Sign-in" tab in the upper right of the website, I type my user name and password as per normal, but then this page comes up:
login.jpg

and I have to complete the sign-in again. I understand it is a security precaution to get rid of bots and/or suspicious signing in, but I can't seem to get the sign-in process to revert back to the single log-in attempt. This first started when I logged in from a different computer - but since then I've been using the same machine for most of my time here.

Any help?

I always get that issue. Sometimes clearing SE site cookies fixes it.

Just a small issue: on the main page under the section "capabilities", these turning cards. the first card "[b]ALL TYPES OF CELESTIAL OBJECTS REPRESENTED[/b]" is repeated as the last card.
Like I said, a really small issue but a detail
