    I honestly totally forgot about gem settings for postings. I've been around long enough to hit the top spot but I spend most of my time in the chat room. The only reason I'm posting this is because it's a little cool. I received a water opal the week of my birthday which is the 24th. It also coincides with my Pisces sign. Maybe some luck will come my way for a change :beer:

    So much for that good luck sign! I guess the fact that I survived says enough for me I guess. Time to start a new chapter in my life, thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers. :coffee2:

    Good to have you back. Have you actually switched to coffee now?

    I don't think there are any gem settings any more, the gems have been hidden since the switch to Xenforo. I don't even know how to view your gem level.
    They used to be displayed on the left-hand side of every poster.

    Um, they're still there. What are you browsing on that you don't see them?

    I see gems for myself (Iol) and Slick (Emerald). There's text descriptions as well as images. I don't see gems for anyone else (Drugar, Sorvo, Beren, Taluntain). Everybody has different statuses (staff member, SPS, distinguished, veteran) so I doubt if that is affecting gem allocation/display. Browsing on Edge.

    Pretty much the same for me, with Firefox. They don't appear for most people.

    They don't show in threads for anyone with an avatar/portrait, I think that has always been the case. They're displayed in place of an avatar/portrait for those who have neither. But they're still accumulated in the background as "trophies" for everyone and you get notified via alerts upon reaching new ones. You can see the list of trophies here: https://sorcerers.net/community/help/trophies

    And you can check your own (or anyone else's) via their profile on the "Trophy Points" link.

    Oh, that makes sense (in a bug-tracking kind of way). Though it doesn't "make sense" in terms of ux. Personally I despise that "profile columns" exceed the height of typically 1-2 line responses so I'm okay with gems not displaying (imo all the info below the portrait and name has very little use). Hate to declare this publicly but to me gems themselves are meh.

    For consistency though, gems should show even with an avatar.

    That would make the text part of the posts ridiculously empty in most instances, which is why it isn't used.
