It has been pointed out before, but I'll have troupes of urchins shout it from the rooftops once more:

All Fallen London links with "storynexus" in them are dead! Permanently! Big Grin

The same is true for profile links using the ~ symbol instead of a simple spacing or '%20'. It used to be necessary to use ~ for spaces, but this has been changed a good while ago.

If you have a profile link in your signature, make sure it's up to date! smile

Thankyou! Forgot to update the link in my own sig.!

While we're on the topic of profiles, is there a way to change the "They say..." text? I know when the change to the new design went through it wasn't possible, but does anyone know if that's been updated since?

Think I read that it's on FBG's TODO list, but not yet implemented.

It's doable, in a slightly roundabout fashion: you need to go to the 'Myself' tab, click the 'View Profile' button to open your profile in a new tab, and edit 'They say...' from that tab. Going straight to your profile probably won't work (it's something to do with how FL handles authentication tokens).

Alas, no luck - if I click on it, it opens in a new window (and is the same as if I open it directly.) Right-clicking and opening in a tab opens the same page, still without an edit button.

I'm using Firefox (62.0.3), but maybe it'll work with a different browser. :-)

It's still an authentication token issue, which differs from browser to browser. For Firefox, the "View Profile" button does not carry the token authenticating your identity, whereas Chrome does transfer the token. What you can do is first log into your account, then manually access your profile from that tab. That way, the authentication token is still present.
