Semester finished, currently free
Status: tired | Track: X Ambassadors - Love Songs Drug Songs
|The semester finished two weeks ago, so I technically no longer have any exams to study for the next few months. My job at the physical therapy / biomedical engineering research lab hasn't really begun and I haven't started my MCAT studies yet (please kill me), so I am currently available for you all to bother.|
SUCKS IS GR8
ALSO, SORRY FOR THRUSTING SO MANY CHANGES AT YOU GUYS
ACTUALLY, I'M NOT SORRY. I'M REALLY ENJOYING IT.
YOU SHOULD SEE WHAT'S COMING UP NEXT

New name + minor updates to forum
Status: good | Track: Chet Faker - Gold
If you haven't figured it out, my new username on GASR is Diabolus. Therefore, if you tag @TurtleTrainer, obviously I will not respond, so please tag @Diabolus instead!
I am currently working on a "landing page" for GASR--something that can tell guests what our forum is about before they log in or register to the forum. Although the project is not finished, I decided to release the slightly modified header early because why the hell not?!? Tino and I took some time to pick out the images to use for the header, all of which should give the forum an artsy atmosphere.
Also, yes, the images are randomized every time you refresh the page. That is not me being fickle.

|If you wish to grab the direct link to a certain post, you may now do so by clicking on the "Permalink" button in the upper right hand corner of that post: |
When the button has been clicked, the URL in the address bar should immediately change and include the post's id # at the end of the URL. Previously, you had to edit a post and then copy its URL in the address bar to create the link for that post, but this button cuts down the extra step and automatically generates the URL for you.
Let's say you want to link your friend to the third post of this thread.
1. Click the permalink button
2. The URL should change from this...
to this, which now includes the id # of the third post...
3. Copy the entire URL in the address bar and paste it to wherever or whomever. Here's the permalink for that third post:
That's pretty much it!
I know that there are people who like to create those little navigation menus in their shop that have links leading to specific posts in their thread, so I hope this reduces the tedious side of it. Plus, if you want to link someone to an exact post, this button should do the trick.

New fonts & No laptop access every Mon-Sat
Status: crappy | Track: Nothing But Thieves - Trip Switch
|001. NEW FONTS|
I installed new fonts to the forum a few weeks ago but never made an announcement for it. Feel free to use any of the following fonts to spice up your posts. Please note that you cannot view them in the font list when you are using Quick Reply. You must be on the Preview page in order to view the list of fonts. The fonts kept messing up the topic icons, so I could only put them on the Preview page. Below are the new fonts that I have installed:
002. NO LAPTOP ACCESS EVERY MON-SAT
I do not have access to my laptop every Monday thru Saturday; I will only access GASR through my phone during those days. If you contact me any time between Monday-Saturday, I will only be able to give brief replies but I will not be able to do major things such as modifying accounts (granting AP badges, updating backgrounds, etc.) or resolving GASR issues. Otherwise, you will have to wait until Sunday to contact me. I am very busy with studying for the MCAT, which is exactly 2 months away from today, so I need to remove as many distractions as possible. I also get very cranky when I study, so this is for everyone's good.

Menu and Toolbar Updates
Status: anxious | Track: Maudlin Strangers - Overdose
|001. NEW PRIVATE MESSAGE ALERT|
When you receive a new private message, the alert will appear at the top of the page. Clicking on it will lead you directly to your private messages page. You no longer need to open the menu to manually check if you have received a new message.
002. NEW MENU
I know you are all very sick of seeing the menu change so often (I believe this is the 3rd or 4th menu we've had since January), but I promise you that this one is a good upgrade.
I am slowly learning to integrate parts of Forumotion's toolbar to GASR's menu, and fortunately I figured out some alternative ways to transfer information from the "Welcome _____" box to the GASR menu. So all of the Logout, my topics, my posts, and watched topic links are visible in the new menu. Also, if you click on your name below your avatar picture in the menu, it leads to your profile.
I'm sure you all know that you can open the menu by clicking on the hamburger ☰ icon, but did you know that
you can also swipe it open on touch screens/mobile devices? A few fellow mods have told me that zooming in on iPhones causes the menu to accidentally open, so I am still looking into this. For the most part though, the swiping method should work fine.
If you have any suggestions or problems with the menu, please post them in the feedback and suggestions thread.
That was a good waste of time. Back to studying, I guess.

No more MCAT chaos but I have school
Status: hungry | Track: The Neighbourhood - RIP 2 My Youth
|Look who has returned from hell!!!!|
I am done with taking the MCAT, but I have to deal with school now. I will try to get back into the groove of updating GASR, dealing with forum problems, and responding to my private messages, but I may be a little slow due to catching up on coursework and balancing two jobs. Feel free to contact me for whatever reason, however. I am finally available!

Spring break updates, still available
Status: bored | Track: Foals - Give It All
|Helo it me again|
01. New landing page
This is mostly for new people who sign up to our forum and have no idea what this forum is about. Only guests will see this landing page. Once you sign into your account, it will disappear.
02. Rules and Guidelines on HTML page
Originally we had the rules and guidelines in separate threads, but they have all been compiled into one HTML page now for easier browsing. Never noticed how many rules we had until now...
03. Tagging button
Instead of typing in the person's name, you can just click on the @ button beneath their avatar picture and it will automatically generate the tag for you.

Light & Dark Theme Available
Status: gud | Track: Carly Rae Jepsen - Higher
|In order to please the other half of GASR, I have created a darker version of GASR's theme.|
You'll find the button at the bottom right corner of the footer of the site. Click on the white part to toggle back and forth between the light and dark version.
I am debating whether or not I want to go full HPBD and make GASR all dark and burn everyone's eyes.
