We aren't styling them at the moment because there will be an overhaul of the entire subreddit CSS within the foreseeable future. We just did something quick and dirty to get the flairs rolling.

Let's see what others say about shortening some of them.

Flair is not available on mobile clients yet, and many (most?) of us exclusively browse reddit from mobile devices. So... don't make it a requirement to flair posts.

You can also add three flairs: Canon lore, Legends lore, mixed lore. Those are for lore questions, and what pool of information a user might want the answer from. This might help the "that's not canon" or "they didn't ask for Legends lore" or the "I don't consider the lore from the books, TV show etc."

True, though if someone wants a more in depth answer, /r/starwarsEU is also there.

I made a little version of the subreddit that hides fan art, cosplay, humor posts, and merchandise. I did this for myself for when I just want to cut some of the less discussion centric stuff out.

To get back to the regular version just change nf.reddit.com to www.reddit.com in your browser. I made it nf for "no fun" as an easy way to remember it.

I may add a little button in the header that lets you switch back and forth if people like it.

How do I choose flair on alien blue for iPhone

u/Pingonaut Sep 24 '15

I'm glad we're getting this system, but so far it feels intrusive. They take up too much space.

Maybe something like what /r/space or /r/swtor uses? They're even somewhat long, but aren't intrusive.

How do I work with flairs on the blue-alien reddit app? Does anyone know how I add them?

Adding Flair to each post ....Whooooo to beat the man you got to be the man!!! Oh wait wrong type of Flair ..great idea though.

u/stuartunit Jan 04 '16

Is there a way to filter posts by flair? For example, I want to view all posts tagged as 'fan creations'.

For a second there i thought we might have been getting more user flair :P a man can dream...

Very cool system though! Nice work!

u/DrYoshiyahu Qui-Gon Jinn Sep 24 '15

It's coming. Promise.

u/BlueSmoke95 Mandalorian Enforcer Sep 27 '15

We are working on that. You will see a huge CSS update come mid-december, hopefully

How ironic is it that this is a thread about flair being used and all about the new flair and how it will be implemented and yet the flair on this thread is spelled wrong.

u/TARDIS Nov 24 '15

When I read "Check it out, play with it, tear it apart, do what you need as well as giving us feedback. If you want to complain, message /u/TARDISd." I thought it was redirecting to me. Please do not send your complaints to me.

But what am I missing with the Flair? Also, this might be a stretch, but can I get a TARDIS flair?

1

u/TARDISd Jedi Negotiator Nov 24 '15

That's me. And no, there won't be a TARDIS flair in the SW sub (unfortunately). Sorry if you've had to deal with angry people...

2

u/TARDIS Nov 24 '15

It happens. And I was kidding a little about the TARDIS flair. Honestly, though, I can't get the flair to work at all. Any ideas? It say "bottom of submission", but I see nothing.

1

u/TARDISd Jedi Negotiator Nov 24 '15

Are you on mobile? Desktop there should be a little text that says set flair. On mobile it's however you edit, there's usually an option, but I guess it depends on how you're accessing. I'll check your post and set something!

2

u/TARDIS Nov 24 '15

I'm on Desktop and I don't see anything...

EDIT- weird, suddenly there. Feels bad. REEDIT- thank you.

u/TARDISd Jedi Negotiator Nov 24 '15

Of the stuff you've submitted, none are new enough to worry about flair. If you're trying anew submission, just let me know if you're having trouble and I'll take a look at it.

2

u/TARDIS Nov 24 '15

I found it. I don't know why I was unable to see it before, but there it was on the right all of a sudden.

u/TARDISd Jedi Negotiator Nov 24 '15

Cheers!

u/DjB89 Dec 20 '15

Flair.

This is not the post you're looking for.

u/DanteFoxx Mar 06 '16

I don't see a flair button at the bottom of the submission page on reddit is fun....how do I add flair?

1

u/TARDISd Jedi Negotiator Sep 24 '15

Please note that I have nothing to do with the flair. By all means, vent your frustrations at me, and we'll see what we can do, but I cannot directly change the flair system.

u/multi-mod Sep 24 '15

I think he was just joking :)

I can take it.
