On GraandNew, there no link to display the post for your foes.

For me, this has not been a problem since apparently, I don't have any foes right now. I had to add one temporarily just to test it (sorry Sam, unless you can't read this because I am in your foe list :bag: ).

I use the default theme (I never bother with any other). Ignored posts have a slightly messed up message (see highlight):
<some Fogdude>, who is currently on your ignore list, made this post.
%1$sDisplay this post%2$s.
Is it an insertion field in a format or something? I dunno, but this percentty doodahs weren't there when dinosaurs roamed the earth, and they crept in some months ago.
I see that as well.
Same here.

I don't get the complaint. You used the juvenile foe/ignore feature then complain when you can't easily unmask what some foe said?... :confuzzled:

I'm an adult. I don't foe anyone, as you all know. (But I'm sure I'm on a few lists).

What does being an adult have to do with it?

You can unmask. Weird code shows up on the link to do so whether you do or don’t. This is Report Problems Here so it makes sense to report it here.

What’s the question again?

Was this in response to my comment? I was only testing how the feature worked in GraandNew and reported the results. The change I made was only temporary to see how it worked in this theme. I was first just checking out of curiosity and then when I noticed it did not have "Display this post" with or without the special characters, I figured I should mention it.

I was testing the issue to provide more detail regarding the issue that Sam reported. I am not complaining but providing more detail should it be helpful.

Right now, it matters not to me as I have no foes listed. However, in the past, I have had one or two folks in foe/ignore for various reasons. There were times I might want to see a comment they had made. "Display this post" allows you to quickly see that comment without having to go to a different screen to remove them from foes, see the one post, and then go back and mark them as foes. I have used the feature rarely, but I have used it a couple times (and I think the ones I did use it on did not move to the new Fogbow).

Yeah, I've seen that, and obviously it's a glitch.

But it hasn't broken anything (so far) and I'm sure it's a minor thing or they'd be issuing an emergency update (we've seen that before).

I see it when I delete dupes and so forth.

I'll keep an eye on it, but 1) I'm pretty sure it's nothing to worry about and 2) I would have to use some kind of Windows grep to even find the error and you are taking your life in your hands if you allow me to start coding stuff like that on this forum. I do some code.

Do you know, my 20 year old son is writing all this Python code, he called me from work to get me to email him a file he needed. So this morning I asked him, "Where did you learn Python?" because I know he didn't study at any school he's gone to.

"At work."

"Oh, that's cool. They're paying you $15 an hour to teach yourself Python."

"Well yeah, but then I'm actually doing something with it."

This is why we let him stay up till 4 a.m. during school year ... he really is a damn genius. Nobody pays me $15/hr. to teach myself Python. :mad:
Edit: I should go over there one day and tell the boss, "Hey, I'll sit here and teach myself Python for only $14/hr. and you can fire my son, he needs to go clean his room anyway." :mrgreen:

Twicet this morning my posts have duplicated, and both times when I tried to delete one of them I was told I ‘can’t delete things in this forum’. I assume you’ve zapped them both?

OMG I’m losing my powers!! :crying:

I come before the Great Dick Tater and assorted benevolent Greenies to ask a boon for my lowly personage. :notworthy1:

I have a friend who may be joining soon, not sure when, he procrastinates almost as badly as I do. But he has enjoyed reading some of the posts here and when I mentioned there are areas that are "members only" he was interested. He won't post much, if at all, but loves to read about stuff.

If/When he finally gets around to joining, can I beg/plead/promise cookies/cupcakes/new decoder rings if y'all just push him through past the three post requirement? If that is still a thing?

Weirdness, twice.

Earlier this evening two posts commingled, with a graphic from one post on top of text from another, but not crashed together. It looked like it should be that way. Resolved when I refreshed the page.

Just now in the republicans behaving like republicans thread I saw that my Santorum and Butina copied tweet had turned into Ted Cruz. Horrified that I might be completely losing my mind -shit, did I post this one by mistake instead? - I looked at it in edit mode. The Santorum tweet I’d copied was what was there, and when I resubmitted, Santorum was back.

What’s going on? Ted stalking Santorum, wants some Butina action? Weirdness.

Neat trick. How’d he do it?

ETA Both incidents involved copied tweets.

It was a full moon last night. :liar:
Resolved when I refreshed the page.
Aha, a clue! A clue that indicates the problem was the browser, not the website.

But it probably happened to everybody else, they're just being quiet about it.

:snippity:
Probably unrelated but starting yesterday afternoon the forum started opening in a zoomed in mode for me. This was on Windows with Firefox. I had to zoom out to 80% to get it to look "normal". It was the same this morning but in the last five minutes it was back to the view I expect to see. Weird. :confuzzled:

Oh man, that post was so wrong I totally deleted it. Lemme try again.

I have to change your default usergroup myself before the username changes color, and I try to look at the membership of the groups at least once a day to see if I got everybody, but if you haven't changed color just say something and I will eventually catch up. I don't know why they don't let you do it yourself. :shrug:

At the present time, all the Grumpy People are purple (except me, because, grump though I may, my default group is Boss of You, which is dark red), all the Gadflies are orange, and all the Badass Ladies and Ladies in Pink are the right color (Narrator: We need more of both). But I might look again, further on down the road a piece.
