  1. Please let me know if you find any problems.
  2. DISCLOSURE The forum founder and moderators do not sell electric unicycles and are NOT affiliated with any electric unicycle related company nor receive compensation from any electric unicycle companies. We have zero-income from this. We want to keep this forum as neutral and unbiased as possible. RULES Be good to one another. Don’t insult anyone directly, including the staff. Don’t use hate speech of any kind, including (but not limited to) hate speech related to ethnicity, race, sexuality, gender, religion, political inclination, or anything else deemed inappropriate by the moderation team. No pornography. Do not type your entire post or the entire topic title in ALL-CAPS. Capitalization of a few words for emphasis is okay (like I just did in the last sentence). ADVERTISING RULES All ads must go in the corresponding ad section of the forum. In the interest of our members, if you are going to advertise your electric unicycle store, company, or products it should be something that the vast majority of our members are very likely WANTING to see. Do not do this more than once a week and bumping your ads unnecessarily. Also make sure the ad is significantly different from your previous one. As a regular customer, discussing about euc shops in the non-ad sections is okay as long as you are not deliberately trying to "game the system" by shilling. For example, you should not keep praising and linking a shop in your replies or in topics pretending to be normal customer while you are actually financially associated to the shop. We can spot these things and you will achieve the opposite effect where your business loses reputation, your account being banned, or both. LANGUAGE English (and as "lingua franca") is the language used in this forum. If you cannot express what you want to say in English then use Google Translate first and paste the translated message into your topic or replies. This is better than having the majority of our members having to do it individually to read your message. Non-English language discussions are allowed in the "Local Group Meet Ups" section where there are threads specifically for different native languages of different countries or regions. Some tolerance will be allowed for Chinese euc manufacturers (if their English is weak) to type in Chinese if it helps facilitate problem solving with eucs. In these cases, we encourage other members to translate it back to English. NEW MEMBERS Your first few posts may be manually approved by the moderators before others can see them, to ensure they are appropriate. As this is a "global" forum we recommend that you include your country in your profile under "Location" ( not in your name ) to facilitate discussions that depend on geography. POSTING MEDIA This forum is hosted on a server where the total disk space cap is relatively low. Therefore every forum member's account also has a cap on total disk usage (you will eventually run out of space). For this reason it is encouraged that you put your large images on reliable external sites such as imgur.com (or equivalent) and embed it back into your posts. For imgur (you don't have to create an account), if you want to embed the photo into your post, make sure to use the "Direct Link" instead of the "Image Link" given by imgur. Needless to say, videos go to YouTube (or equivalent) and can be embedded back into your posts here. To "embed" all you have to do is copy and paste the link to the body of your post (wherever you want it) and hit enter. USING THE QUOTE FUNCTION When quoting a post that is very long (especially one with multiple media embeds) please trim away the parts of the quote that are irrelevant to your reply.

    Collapsible quotes?

    Neat I didn't even know about this.

    Mark posts as offtopic?

    We are running the latest 4.2.8 as of now. I have turned on the ability for members to choose their view.

    Collapsible quotes?

    Invision doesn't have this natively but there is a plug in for that. https://invisioncommunity.com/files/file/8538-minimized-quote/ However, I find it risky to run third party plug-ins. Also when the invision software updates (and they do it frequently) it often breaks third party plug-ins. So for reliability and safety I prefer not to install this.
  6. The "Dark Theme" option was removed due to a bug that I cannot resolve. Just put your sunglasses on.
  7. On desktop you'll notice two new icons, a quote icon and an eye icon above your text entry box. You can also use bbcode to achieve the same thing (e.g. on mobile) using the following commands in SQUARE BRACKETS: quote /quote spoiler /spoiler When quoting someone's post in the forum you should continue to use the previous method by pressing the "Quote" link of that post.
  8. Wow didn't know that. Thanks!
  9. The bug only affects dark theme. All embeds of other forum posts show the wrong embed in dark theme. Meanwhile you can use this but it won't work for mobile: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/dark-reader/eimadpbcbfnmbkopoojfekhnkhdbieeh?hl=en
  10. Does it force you to have a birthday entry to edit? It shouldn't be mandatory.
  11. Can anyone else confirm that this is broken? I don't see any reason why you can't update.
  12. @dbfrese This is what I got from support regarding making your account login-able via "not-facebook". I'm assuming both methods can be used if this is done. Please let me know how it goes.
  13. So glad to hear! I will get back to you about whether there's an option to migrate to a standard login.
  14. Meanwhile I am asking support (they still haven't replied) if we can migrate fb login members to email login so that we can eventually disable fb login completely. Will keep you posted.
  15. @dbfrese Support hasn't replied but I made some changes on the Facebook side. Apparently they changed us to "development mode" because of a missing privacy policy. I have now fixed that. Can you see if it works now?
  16. Submitted a ticket with Invision. Will see what they say, if any.
  17. EDIT: This thread has become a wealth of information for beginners. Please check out all the other posts by the community within this thread too. Most of us who have been riding for quite some time don't give it much thought as it has been incorporated into our muscle memory and have become second nature. However, for a beginner, it is important to understand the physics behind balancing on a euc and to be actively aware of this until it becomes second nature and incorporated into one's muscle memory so that one doesn't even have to think about it anymore. When you ride a bicycle at LOW speeds (before gyroscopic forces take significant effect) you have to manually compensate by steering your front wheel left and right to avoid tipping over to any one side. Balancing on a euc at low speeds is a similar concept. If you are losing balance and falling (tipping) towards the left, then you have to steer or twist towards the left. If you are falling (tipping) towards the right, then you have to steer or twist towards the right. The magnitude of manual compensation decreases as the gyroscopic effect increases with speed. While on the topic of helping beginners, another tip is to loosely hold a luggage strap looped around the handle of the euc. This will increase your confidence as you no longer have to worry about damaging your unit, making loud tumbling noises, and/or hurting other people when you decide to step off in an emergency during your learning process. Note that this is absolutely NOT used to help you balance. The only downside to this is that one of your arms will not be free to flail to help you balance, however I believe the upside outweighs this downside. Be careful not to allow too much slack on the strap to hang too low as to let it get sucked into the wheel.
  18. The following is already in the "Rules" post but it appears that a lot of members didn't notice it. POSTING MEDIA This forum is hosted on a server where the total disk space cap is relatively low.

  19. @LanghamP If there are specific images you would like to delete but you don't want to hide your post entirely please let me know (either here or pm) and I'll delete them.
  20. Just use imgur.com for now and embed the image link on the forum. I was supposed to work on hosting images for this forum on amazon but it was more complicated than I thought. I'll get around to it someday. Sorry.

    @esaj now has the ability to take over both the complete administration and payment of the account in case I expire or are unable to respond in a prolonged manner. Okay now please don't kill me. Thanks. EDIT: @esaj would have to domain name change eventually though or grab it back upon expiry.

    Only if you change your last name to Unicyclist and your first name to Fat first.

    I'll just have to try not to die then. Or some solution may come from the post above.

    Let me ask Invision about "what happens if I die?". If I could pre-assign it to @esaj or something. EDIT: Support ticket sent. Will let you guys know.

    What would be the odds I happened to have EUCist as last name? I guess I could have had my name changed because I was such a fan. But no.
