The closest thing we have to a to-do list is the CS Wish list. If you don't have something there already, you can request this item. That said,

1) I don't deal with the technical side of the site, so I don't know how easy this is to address, from a feasibility perspective, and
2) there is likely to be a broader forum software update somewhere in the not-enormously-far future, and I expect that this little irritation is probably best left until after that (since who knows if it will remain an issue at that point?)

Question about a private campaign. So once I get a game approved I wanted to DM it for my friends IRL (we have conflicting schedules). Is that possible with this website? There seems to be an implication that one advertises to get players. I didnt see any FAQ addressing the situation. If the game is approved could I make it private then send invites out to the aforementioned people? Is that looked down upon?

You're fine. Just put your friends' usernames in the Accepted Players field when you request the game, and make sure the box for an advertisement is unchecked. Once you're approved, you'll be good to go.

What Ziether said.

Advertising is simply the most common method of finding players for your game. We don't create game forums without seeing interest shown in the game, but with existing players (once they've created accounts here), you'll have that.

Game forums are public by default, though players not associated with the game know not to post there. It is possible to make threads only visible to your players through the privacy settings when you post the thread, but I wouldn't bother with the hassle. Most of the time it's easier to have your game be readable even if you aren't logged in.

Hi there.

I’m wondering what to do in the event a DM goes inactive?

I was in the process of working through the tutorial ‘Mage Tower’, but it seems my DM has gone inactive. Do I need to request for another?

Greetings. I'm one of the Moderators that oversees the NPSG program. I'll check your game and see what we can do about it.

Edit - I have contacted your DM regarding the game.

Edit 2- Your GM has replied to my message. You'll want to check your game thread in the near future.

Search function parameters
I'm trying to search for posts that have both key word A and keyword B.
Both adding a space and a + between the key words seems to get a result of Keyword A or keyword B.
How do I get posts that have both keywords?

That just seems to be default behavior, so just a space.
I tested it by searching Caleb, a character name I've used more than once. But Caleb mephit returned only threads from a specific game where I fought one.

Edit: Apparently all the threads from the game in question are set to private, which makes it a terrible example. I can come up with another one if you like.

New search example:
zenda - 9 results
wyvern - 400 results (probably hit a result limit)
zenda wyvern - 2 results (game example, and then this post)

Yea something odd is happening for me.
Tests seem to suggest that's the case, but when I search for the terms I actually want to find combined, I'm having multiple results that only have one of the two key words in them.
The only thing I can think is that there's secret text involved.

Hrmmm. May I ask what you're searching for?
The only other thing that pops to mind is that short words will get dropped from the search. Like I tried 'Roc'. But it gave me a warning about that.

The names of two NPC's in a long running campaign. Both are 4 or more letters (3 letter words being the ones that get dropped).
Funny note, searched individually both hit the 400 results found cap. Searched together the number drops down to 163, so I suspect it's the secret text thing.

Unfortunately, yes, NPC names are going to be quite popular in secret text, just as they are littered through many game posts. If you can think of any extra keywords for whatever you are seeking, you might have better luck.

I thought search results that included information from secret text was deemed a bug and fixed?

I don't remember if that was indeed the resolution or not I'll have to hunt down when I brought it up.
