Could we have a quicker link to the new chat from the front page? Or did I just miss it?
I used to hate gravity because it would not let me fly. Now I realize it is gravity that lets me stand.

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

Also, there are now links at the top of all the themes! Next to FAQ, Members, etc.

ALSO, do you see asterisks next to logged in users? They are in the chat, as you should be.

So, another forum I'm a member at sends a message to people who haven't logged in within a specified period of time. (A month, maybe?)

Basically just saying: hey, we want you back.


Is this something we might consider?

From a tech standpoint, how hard would this be to implement (if the community likes the idea)?

Brian fully supports the pirate smiley. Arrr.

On another note, when I clicked on the link to his video in the performance thread, it didn't open a new tab, but navigated me away from my page. Any way to fix that?

Also, I'm going to need to avoid chat, since it will suck away all of my time. So have fun, but not too much fun without me.

As long as there are so many of you hanging about, might any of you want to help me test this out?
Seems to work - there wasn't anyone else online but I could see past messages.

However, it spat out this error when it opened:

Code: Select all

TypeError: Object#<HTMLObjectElement> has no method 'create'
Also, chance to use code tags! Yay!

I think I've fixed this. Not sure if it helps with any of the other little glitches we were getting...

Are those RSS feed links on each section of the forum? I don't know why you would allow me to put pweb on my google reader if you ever expect me to actually post again...

Ooo. If you hover over the chat link, it tells you who's chatting.

Wow, I spend a week ignoring most of the internet so I can play with my new phone (and nearly break it a few times, flashing ROMs is fun) and this place gets all gussied up! I like it. Thanks, whoever was involved!

(Proof that I am not resistant to all change, just Facebook's recent ridiculousness.)

I like that the thread name is shortened to "New and Exciting Things about this New and Exciting Boar" above the individual posts. It makes me chuckle. :stamp:

This is driving me crazy. I think I mentioned it the other day, too, but the tech guys must have missed it. Tech guys? Is there anything we can do about this problem?

But that would require way too many clicks. I'm far too lazy for that option. But yes, that would be a simple solution to my annoyance. I just keep forgetting that I have to now.

Middle-clicking opens in a new page/tab directly, without the right click menu.

Turns out it's more complicated than I thought. I figured there'd be an option somewhere in the control panel. There isn't. Instead we have to install a mod to make this work. I can install the mod, but not right now as I'm still at work, and I'm trying to finish up some things here before the weekend. :)

I'll look at it later, unless Chris beats me to it as has been his MO.
