Bugs you found, and changes I made

Just thought I'd create this thread where you can post any bugs or problems with the site you encounter. And also for me to post any big changes I made.

Hello Pupper, I've encountered a bug that appears when I open a link in a new tab. When I do so the options that I've selected seem to disappear, but only when I do that. If I click on a link normally all the options stay. It seems to only be occurring with Firefox, it kept the options intact with Pale Moon.

Is this specific options or all options?
I did quick test on FireFox and was not able to reproduce it. Did some simple option changes (theme change, embed links, etc.) and custom css which all carried over when opening up a new tab.
Do you have any plugins that sandboxes tabs or similar on FireFox?

>Is this specific options or all options?
All of them.

>Do you have any plugins that sandboxes tabs or similar on FireFox?
That's most likely it, I've got a lot of security-minded options changed in about:config so it would the appear to be more on my end. Apologies, and thanks for the quick response. Maybe I can tool around with it sooner or later and see if I get the same error.

Thinking about doing a little server maintenance tomorrow so there might be a short downtime at one point, but hopefully it won't last long (hopefully at most a few minutes). Nothing is set in stone regarding maintenance, but just a little heads up in case I find time to do it.

I'm just trying to clarify, is that a 'no' on making an accurate, consistent, and enforceable policy?
It's fine, I am just looking for clarification if possible.
Do users and staff have any actual guidelines? Is there any standard, or is there a very deliberate double-standard (meaning, who 'we' like and who 'we' dont like)?

I will look into adding this functionality to the code. I will have to do some experimenting on how to best implement it as I never used the watchlist myself. But making it so the selected threads gets on top of board pages and overboard is not a bad idea, just have to find a way to make it work in a good way.

Not pissing me off due to below resons.
Fucking lost an hours worth of carefully crafted words.
There's two different view points.
One is in the trees the other is the extremely wide forest.
This place is built on an honor systems, because of trust.
At the moment everything is fine. And it's ONLY fine.
The whole place is democracy based (without someone akin to Atlas) so it takes forever for anything is occur based on policy and rules.
Those rules are a mere formality that everyone is on the same page and is honoring everyone else and is respecting the trust by everybody.
Discipline means jack except in extremes, and due to the speed and amount of users. Which is a large amount /mlpol/ vets. Losing someone on a site of this size hurts enough to be felt.

You're both antagonizing eachother and it's basically fixed with talking, friendship, and some shitposting. Mostly the first two.
So you're in a deadlock because he doesn't know what's going on and has heard jack and seen nothing done on the policy page for the honor contract shit.
Nothing's happening 'cause on the day to day staff wise nothing is and has happened.
The perspectives have to be flipped so a proactive approach would be more valuable.

That's an opinion and speculation.

No need. Everything is fine.

This could have been resolved years ago, simply by making the words in the policy page true. Whether means amending the policy OR adhering to it IDGAF. And no, 'Nah' isnt an acceptable response.

To keep yourself fixated in a meaningless policy page is absurd. There so much shitposting to make and so many ponies to post.

Wait, the policy page really is meaningless? The policy page is supposed to be a place where the staff make promises to the users, promises they intend to keep.

It is for me, as I do my duties regularly and I do not cause trouble to my fellow poners.
In other words, I'm not a troublemaker and therefore I do not need to check myself or others against the site's policy.

The reason why is that there is zero reason not to change the policy page.
So yes it is 'useless' but that's with any given value. Changing it seems like a watse of time and if it is What the fuck is all the fuss about? Like dude it's three lines at most to reflect the new current situation. I understand throwing of invaders, but if it's useless give me a break.
I'll write the damn thing by copy and pasting what's been said in the various threads.
>>6030
Yes, but that's how trouble starts in paradise. Whatever since it doesn't matter I'll just post the 'new and improved' html in the change thread or something later.

Your shitposting has already effectively derailed threads that were actually about amending the policy page, and plenty others. Don't kneecap other posters' discussions for whatever it is you're trying to do.

Minor bug or 'feature'.
Posts that are wrapped in color change the message to that color or effect. Currently seem harmless.
