Youtube is blocked for me at work, but it appears to be working. (At least, I can see a big blocked out square where I'm assuming an embedded youtube video would be).
you snooze, you lose
well I have snozzed and lost
I'm pushing through
I'll disregard the cost
I hear the bells
so fascinating and
I'll slug it out
I'm sick of waiting
and I can
hear the bells are
ringing joyful and triumphant

Hmm. An interesting perspective I had not considered.

:stoned: just testing something. Don't mind me.

ETA: OK, I changed the smilie code to : stoned : to match what it used to be in an effort to make it appear normally on older posts, but it didn't work. It seems that any posts that were made last night with : stoned kermit : will still show the correct image. but new posts with :stoned kermit: won't work.

Not working on the iPod touch, but that's fine. Do you just click on them or what?

It just sets the text color and the span color the same. Selecting the text then reveals it. Not sure if selecting the text on an iOS device will work...

WHEE!!!

Heee! It's like looking at those old letters that were censored when people wouldsend mail to the Army, back in World War II.. So much easier than invisi-writing!. Although, it does lack the subtlety and amusement of invisitext. In short, kudos!

Ah I see. Selecting doesn't seem to work, but I can copy and paste it elsewhere and read it. Which means I'll probably just do my spoiler reading at home because I'm lazy.

New exciting feature! After you vote in a poll, the poll marks which option you chose! This makes me excited because, now and then I would come across a thread with an old poll I had voted in, and I would wonder, "Oh, gosh. I wonder what I said."

Also, when creating a poll, you can now choose to allow voters to change their vote.

Don't freak out people, but the Religion Forum and the Science Forum have merged with this one. Please feel free to continue to have any discussions on Religion/Moral Philosophy and Sciencey things here in Milagre. All the threads are still here, and with our new and improved search function, it shouldn't be hard to find them.

I moved a couple things around as well, so Battle Room is now in Community and the Clubs are together in a subforum.

PS. FYI: Not making this decision on my own. This is what we discussed several months ago.

Jan, if you're gonna make the book and movie clubs subforums, might as well put the subforums in Milagre. They look a bit goofy as subforums of an empty board.

I like the Jeesh Lounge as still existing for the time being. I don't think it looks that goofy.

Doesn't work on the iPad, either, but I was able to see what was under the spoiler tags by selecting "quote" as if I were going to reply and quote the message.

I'm trying really, really hard to come up with a decent topic that I could use to take the new poll out for a test spin -- preferably something where everyone can pick two options and change their votes -- but I am just drawing blank after blank. Someone help?

I added a new field to everyone's profile. By no means are you required to fill it out, but I know it's an important piece of information to a lot of you.

I was considering at some point just going in with phpmyadmin or whatever and manually running a query on the database to change the core group of members join dates, but haven't gotten around to it yet.
