how can i make the votes in a poll visible?

In the "Manage Topic Poll" dialog, there's a checkbox next to "Poll Title" that says "Make votes public?". Note that you can't change it after anyone has voted, though.

with this thread, we again have a link that keeps reloading forever.

Yeah, I got that perpetual reloading when I posted it, now it works fine. Must be the cyrillic character in the title.

I occasionally broke the review thread of Akshan - The Rise of Atlantis (2013). Posted something here and now the thread doesn't load. Have no idea how I did this  :blush:

Now I can't open the "Bluetech- lead into gold" thread in General Psytrance. It seems that when someone answers in a thread that has something other than letters and other basic symbols in the title the thread becomes not accessible (the page keeps loading forewer)

 

EDIT: The thread works again now  :unsure:

Hi guys, I feel sad that people refer to such a broad spectrum of electronic music under the "psytrance" umbrella term, ranging from old-school goa trance, all the way to full-on... I mean, when you search for goa trance music, e.g. on Youtube, psy-music.ru or on Spotify, you never know what to expect...It would be like mixing pop rock with hard-rock under one big genre. I like old-school goa trance music and neo-goa, but that's about it...I waste so much time browsing and discarding music online because labelled vaguely or wrongly... On Spotify, there are even playlists labeled as "goa trance", which are actually poor, minimalist, repetitive tunes of no interest to be. Certainly not goa trance music. Regarding the forum, maybe it would be a good idea to divide the top-level section into subgenres? Just thinking at loud...This was the rant of the day :)

Although spot on about the term Goa that everyone uses regardless of the actual music produced I think the idea of dividing the forum accordingly would be a huge mistake. Think of us old schoolers, we wouldn't have anyone reading our rants about how bad NeoGoa is etc etc :P:P:P

I think it would make sence just to rename Psynews as Goa Olds. Most regular posters here seem to be not interested in anything but mid-90's goa anyway  :P

How do I add a tag to the topic title text field? I see some topic titles with a red icon and a tag next to it.
How do I do that?

I feel like some labels are to blame for this. For a few months I thought progressive goa was Goa. Until I found Ra and Artha :)

I don't know if we should give them slack for simply referring to the birthplace 'Goa' when they label comps. Or if they use the word 'Goa' to refer to the genre. I still think it could be either. 

regardless Yellow Sunshine Explosion seems to love the word. Possibly encouraging other people to use the word when they use their music.

While we aren't getting answers to questions, can any tell me how to change a profile name? Seems impossible, maybe an admin can do it for me? tsotsi simply needs a capital 'T' in his name. Easy, pick a t, I don't mind.

Only an admin can do that. I also changed my profile name some years ago. But you have to ask one of the admins.

Ummm, you're right, it's not the usual tags. Not sure how to create it (perhaps hashtag) or does the red (pink on the other theme) tags are already created by mods/admins. :/

Yeaj, I have found it! Below the tags is a dropdown list "Item prefix". There you can choose one.
