Forum Maintenance [29/04/2020]

    Quick update from the team - in order to rollout a new feature for the Sea of Thieves website, the Forums will shortly be taken offline for maintenance.

    All users will be automatically logged out of the website during this period, although we expect it to be brief and will update this thread once we're back online.

    @takuboto hope, we finally get a downvote button!

    That won't be with this website update but planning to bring it back relatively soon. We just need to test it again as the feature has been toggled off for so many years!

    @takuboto And what's the new website function? 👀 I've seen that when logging back, I had some notifications in my avatar, and it was some messages from a chat! I didn't even know we had one lol

    AH! You are finally able to see your notifications everywhere on the website 🎉

    @skulliah And no need to refresh! It just pops up.

    Finally you get a notification for the chat...had several chats which I missed, or read a month later...that wasn't helpful...

    Thanks for that!

    @musicmee don't know if this is intended, but when I click on the notification I want to look at, it always puts me on the OP of the thread, not the answer or the upvote that has been made...always have to search for it...
    Buggy? Intended?

    Could this new feature be a tag next to our gamertag showing our emissaries ranks? 😁

    Late responding to this, but as you've probably guessed now based on the chat in here, site-wide notifications is the feature we rolled out today!

    Part of some ongoing changes we're making over the coming months to make the website and especially the forum a lot more user friendly.

    My last chat, 9 months ago!
    God I love being so anti social 😂😂

    Then again now all the crossplay threads are gone, what does one even do with there time on the forums!
    The PvE are just not the same 😂

    On a side note, can’t wait until the downvote button comes back. My popcorn will be at the ready 😂

    @knifelife Please go gentle on my posts matey :( I have spent some time building up this rep!

    And we don't want @triheadedmonkey taking the lead ;D

    I seem to have 5 notifications that I can't get rid of, is this something to do with today's update?

    EDIT: Nevermind they were chat notifications

    @octopus-lime if you have marked them as read or clicked on them, try refreshing the page. (might need to do it for each tab if you have more than one open...)

    @octopus-lime That's where my 99+ was coming from... just marked all as read.

    @musicmee Stop showing off how popular you are ;-)

    Notifications for mentions and upvotes seems to be broken now. The slideout is empty when I open it.

    @d3adst1ck Ahoy matey!

    Have you tried logging out and back in? That cleared the issue for me.

    @musicmee It has randomly started working again

    i keep getting the message session mismatch everytime i click on to the forums :( i`ve cleared the cache at least 3 times and still get that message, only started doing this since that forum maintenance

    edit: just got it again an hour later, message displays as session mismatch, it looks like your log in session is no longer active, or no longer matches with the server, please refresh this page

    @SoT_Support the Creator Crew program is in trouble, because I made all the steps and I do not release the rewards
