Forum Reply via Email

One of the most requested features for the campaign forums has been the ability to reply to a thread via email. Well, you asked, we delivered.

If you look at recent forum notifications, you’ll notice that all the emails now begin with

“—- Reply Above This Line —-“

As long as you follow directions and put your reply at the top of the email, your email will get bounced through our system and turned into a forum reply. This will, in turn, get sent out to all members of the campaign who have selected to receive forum notifications (which is on for everyone by default).

This means you can now participate in a forum thread without ever needing to visit the site. It’s like an email with reply-all, but without worrying that someone gets left out.

One reason it took us so long to get here is that for us to receive and process email is not exactly a simple task. With that in mind, please bear with us as we work out any kinks. If you experience any issues, please make sure to start a support discussion.

Finally, we’re looking for other places to allow email interaction. For example, one obvious feature is the ability to post a comment on an adventure log post via email. Someone does the writeup after a session, sends out a notification to everyone, and they can comment just by replying to the notification. It’s just like the forum, but attached to an adventure log post. This is just one thought, and it’s not well fleshed out, so we’d like to hear any ideas you have.

Liveblogging at DDXP: you pick the seminar

The Dungeons and Dragons Experience is right around the corner, and although I’ll be there to get in on all the exciting new announcements, products and seminars to provide you all with a post show wrap up, I’d like to do something a little more than that. If there is interest enough, I’d like to take it a step further and add some moment-by-moment excitement for those of you unable to attend, by live blogging one of the panels.

New Content Director, New Contest! Seeking High-Res Backgrounds, User Feedback, Long Walks on Beach.

A new year brings a lot of room for fresh ideas, new goals, added features and of course growing the ever-expanding  library of awesome content that gets poured into Obsidian Portal on a daily basis. Rolling the calendar over another year also means new opportunities and more specifically in this case, a new Content Director! My name is Jerry LeNeave and I just happen to be that new guy, I hope you’ll bear with me as I shimmy myself into this fine suit of armor Dan has left behind.

Two New Features: Campaign Backgrounds and Player Secrets

We wanted to open 2011 with a bang, so Ryan and I worked hard over the holiday break to get these two features ready to go. They’re both in need of a little polish, but that’s never stopped us from launching something before.
