Description Issue


(𝕄eͥmrͣiͫรe ) #1

Hi. Just realized something strange, when you click on my profile picture. My description doesn’t appear (see first picture). And when you physically go onto my profile. It’s there. (see second picture)



Can a Mod please help? @MemriseSupport @MemriseMatty @Joshua Thanks.

I presume this is by design - the first is merely a quick and concise info/version that allows you to get some basic info about a poster, the full profile being for the so inclined user.

I’m not so sure. Mine appears… and so does yours. If it were by design, would expect it to be universal.

could we be talking at cross-purposes? I was under the impression that “description” refers to the text that is displayed right underneath the user name. I. e. “New Year […]” for @MarshallLanguages res. “little bird, big world […]” on yours, @isharr.

Or could I be missing something obvious?

I was under the impression that what you refer to is meant to be ‘real name’ (clearly abused by many — including me — to make an inane comment/give holiday wishes), and that ‘description’ is the about me blurb below that. Sorry, @Olaf.Rabbachin — didn’t mean to confuse.

No worries! :wink:. As we have seen there’s obviously quite a bit of room for personal interpretation. I’m sure the OP will be able to clarify.

I meant the “just a happy forum leader” bit,

Ah, I see what you mean now, and you’re right. I do have a feeling that your emoticons might be the reason for the About Me text not showing up.
FWIW, this will be a bug in the forum software itself, so the Memrise team won’t be able to do much about it.
I suppose the best option would probably be to post a report in the forum software’s own bugs board. Good luck!

Well, it’s showing up now. For me, at least. Apparently whatever the issue, it’s oddly intermittent. Also, nice new ‘memrise’ tag.


(𝕄eͥmrͣiͫรe ) #10

I fixed it by getting rid of the emojis. Although MemriseSupport uses emojis and they have no problem…

Yeah, that’s kind of interesting. Guess @Olaf.Rabbachin had it right. Emojis are so messy, anyway, lol; I always struggle to read stuff with them in (the picture ones, anyway).


(𝕄eͥmrͣiͫรe ) #12

Quick question. Should I or you DM an Admin to see if they would like to monitor the Disc OR to ask if it’s ok to release it?


(𝕄eͥmrͣiͫรe ) #13

And sorry for the slow-ish replies. I’ve been busy with this.

Top 3 this week. :sunglasses:

You, likely, once I’ve dekinked the lookups bot. Probably ought to sound people out, too. We might not even be allowed to do it, or they might know of a legit one out there that we’ve missed; you know any admins well, Mr Leader?

See you’ve been working hard on your learning. I actually lost all my streaks by falling asleep randomly : ( So annoying, when most of them are 150+


(𝕄eͥmrͣiͫรe ) #15

Haha. Well. I may ask Joshua or MemriseMatty. Via DM, I don’t really know them as I was selected to be leader from the site, but they always seem to help me. I’ll DM em now.

I was suspecting a leading emoticon to be the trigger, but that’s not the case - I just checked, worked fine for me.
Since you’ve changed your About Me text we’re now lacking a repro scenario too. Not that it’s all too important to have emoticons on your bio, I suppose. True for me at least. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
