Depends how evenly it is distributed.
Don't worry. Ba brought enough for everyone.
Sometimes, when I'm teaching little kids and they do something naughty, it's very hard not to laugh and instead stay firm and serious. Sometimes I get the same feeling with Ba.
Hehehe Quote of the Week!
I've added two little buttons to the post editor at the top, a strike through button to do this [-]strikethrough[/-], and a nerdy W button that I thought was cool - to link to wikipedia pages (assuming you can spell the word right and there is a page for it) - highlight Paris and click the W to get [wiki]Paris[/wiki].
P.S. What happened to splitting the thread up?
:sad: Bob is back! :smile:
Sweet. Thanks again.
I've noticed a quirk in the permalink function - Chris sent me a link to a post, but because he has 20 posts per page (ppp) and I have 15 pppage, the link was not successful.
I guess this is because if you acquire the address via 'Permalink', the page number is included, e.g. http://www.terrypratchettbooks.org/discworld/boardania/1366-message-board-upgrade-17.html#post35816
With 15 ppp, that post (number 248) is on page 17. With 20ppp, it would be on page 13.
The simple fix would be to remove the page part of the permalink, presuming that the board will allow you to change to that format? I just tested, if you remove the page number - it defaults to the first post of a thread.
I do like the ppp manipulation tool (I was thinking of upping mine) and the other personalisation aspects, I don't want to lose them. But I would imagine that with the personalisation options, things like links have less common ground, so it would be neat to find some demoninator that they share.
I can't do anything about that, if we removed the page part it wouldn't be possible for anyone to link to a post.
Oh wait, I see what you mean. No, wait again, it just can't be done.
The only way around it is to get the permalink when you're not logged in, to make sure you go to the right place, and go to it when you're not logged in.
So, Buzzfloyd, I and all the nice people who went back and edited their own posts cleared the Introductions Forum, the Roleplaying Forum, the pages which are now 1-4 and 45-53 of Boardania of the code fallout. If you see any more code fallout on those sites, either let me know it, or if it is in one of your own posts, edit it yourself in the same time.:wink: Other than that, editing will be continued.
In case you haven't noticed yet, there are some games to play now. A couple are the same, but most are different.
I object to the rabbit killing game.
Rabbits don't run like that. :lol:
Phew. Well, it's taken me bloody ages, but I just went back and fixed the code for my last 500 posts. That includes 2 boardfics.
Oh, and also: is there any way of going back further than that?
You're already a trophy winner, Mister Trampoline Man! There should be a song about that...
Is 500 the max, or do you mean you want to travel back beyond your first post?
500 is the max.
Mister Trampoline Man.
I see you went back into threads I'd edited. Had I missed your posts?
Nope. I left most of yours alone. Some I edited to fix smilies.
You should be able to find all your posts now.
Coolio. Thanks, Mal.
Just got an interesting message in the games section:
I look forward to my re-birth...
Sorry, I've been updating the join date of regular members, I forgot to change the year for yours.
No problem, it amused me muchly and didn't prevent me doing anything else.
And I see that most people have gotten their titles back, except me *sulks*
Or me, actually :smile:
I was too lazy to check wether that's possible, but or the mods able to give themselves titles?
Not so far as Ba knows. He believes only admins (thus Mal) can give titles.
I put mine in my sig, in case people forget.
I think it's in American, Kat. I hope so, anyway...
Oh right, that. I get it now.
Wow, didn"t even think of that !! :biggrin:
I played V:force and beat it completely, but it didn't record my score of 800 which would have been the top score.
I don't know what the problem was, unless you weren't logged in, it seems to work?
I was logged in and I know because I did it again just then and it says once you hit 800 points:
Congratulations you beat the game.
But it doesn't direct you to the High Score page or give you a send score option, no matter what you choose.
Well I couldn't get the top score last time I tried, but there was a submit score button when I came third or something.
Edit: never mind, I did it now and see what you mean. It says I finished all the levels. It must be an incomplete game, I shall remove it.
whatever happened to the members' map ? that was fun...
I haven't found a replacement for that yet, not one where we can add our names anyway. There is one that shows the spread of members and visitors though I think, with little dots on the globe.
Oh well, whenever you find one, it's not a priority thing, and you have already done a great job
Mal? Pray, why does the board keep confusing the Ba account with the J. Ryan Beattie account?
I wondered about that - I noticed that the Blogging for Democracy thread says on the forum page that it was posted by JRyanBeattie, but in the thread, the first post says it's by Ba.
Actually I don't know, I thought Ba had been up to shenanigans, I'll have to look into it.
Okay, from what I've been told Ba's problem is that his computer isn't deleting cookies properly, so he isn't properly signed out when he signs back in again under a different name. Maybe your computer is old, or your browser is ancient/exclusive or something?
His computer is of recent make, and his browser is the latest version of Firefox.
Well can you try manually deleting cookies before you log in and see if anything happens? Or, even better, see what happens if you log in from a different computer.
P.S. I fixed your title again.
The same thing that happened with V:Force just happened with Parachute Panic. I got 80 which beats the game and it wouldn't direct me to the high score page.
Okay, it's been removed and replaced by Driving Mad, a golf game (quite nice).
Every time I get a high score it screws up. Waah!
Ah! What does it mean that I can digg and furl posts? Forgive my ignorance towards such new and modern things.
It means, if you have an account with any of them, you can add them as bookmarks so you, and other people in the future, can find them. They're all just different bookmark sites, sort of a trendy alternative to search engines.
May I be picky ? Could you add the old shortcuts for the smileys ( the and so-on) You should be able to add several shortcuts for the same image, and it would be a great help for lame people like me who can't remember to type in "biggrin" or "wink" instead of using the standard msn-like ones...
Say Mal, any thouhts on the above ?
Ooooh, Mal ! You did it !!! Yay !!!!
That was so last month, you're living in the past! :bunny:
Well I had stopped using them, so I didn't notice ! You didn't say anything either, you Mal, you !
Mrrrreow? There are shortcuts? Where are they????
(I'm guessing they're not the "post icons", since those only show up in the title)
Hah, well, the joke being that in the original post, I wrote them out so as to show which ones weren't working and now they work, you can't see the code !
so they are (remove spaces)
Separate names with a comma.
