There needs to be a drop down box to select which character you are posting as. I always have to hit post, then get an error and THEN the drop down is available.

The drop-down menu always displays for me, whether I am a player or the GM. What browser and OS are you using?

Your Browser is probably the issue. I've never heard of the one you are using. I use Chrome on my android phone and the drop down appears for me.

Does the drop-down list display as a drop-down and just doesn't work?  Or do you not even have the option?  Just see "post as: CharacterName" on whatever your background color is.

I'm running android 10 and just downloaded and ran the Brave browser on the default settings and was able to see and use the drop-down menu.  At least as a GM.  I don't have any active games with multiple characters at the moment to test with, but I don't think that bit of UI is different from what I remember.

For me, I'm on Chrome desktop, Win7, and the Dropdown doesn't exist until after I hit either Preview or Post.  The Subject Line doesn't exist either.

Then once it errors, it displays the Dropdown selector and the Subject Line, but if you hit Preview there is no possibility to change the Character you're posting as until after you post and then Edit.

Also, once you preview, the Preview As selector becomes available.


Everything works fine in games where I am a GM, and games where I only control 1 Character (naturally).  I cannot confirm in it's just the one game, as I have only one game where I have multiple Characters but am not also a GM.

Responsive, or old site, EE?

I'm also running Chrome desktop, Win10, and it's working properly on responsive in all the games where I have multiple characters, with or without also being a GM.

Edit: Chrome did have an update recently, in case you didn't have that applied.
