We do, of course, accept suggestions for smiley packs, but do keep in mind that in order to be unobtrusive, they cannot exceed a certain size. I'd say the default smilies on this board are about right in that regard. We may add a few larger smileys, like the popcorn one, but the middle finger smiley is many thousand square pixels too large.

I only used teh larger, many pixel sized middle finger smiley for emphasis. A normal pixel size one would be good, I would also think a smiley giving the finger with both hands would be quite the necessity here as well, along with one mooning (Pulling it's pants down and showing its arse).

I'm truly sorry, but I can't keep explaining this simple thing to you over and over again hoping that you'll finally understand something so simple and obvious.

I think I have mentioned this here before, but what about adding code that would allow us to hide text or images? I think this would be a useful tool when you are quoting large or multiple posts (Or pasting large bodies of text), as well as for hiding images that might be NSF or for hiding gifs which are difficult for some smaller devices, phones, pads, etc...to download.

I think this would clean up the threads quite a bit as well...and you could make it more or less mandatory (Except maybe in certain threads) that all images or gifs be hidden texted, with a brief description of what is hidden underneath.

^I think that is a good idea.
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

Thirded. In fact, I've taken steps to implement it, but am waiting for an OK from Asmodean Prime. I'm just a regular admin, and certainly don't want to get on the bad side of our Grey Tech Admin.

"Spoiler" bb-tag and functionality only affects parts of the engine. Relatively few lines of code, can be upgraded around and/or over. This will be implemented.

Adding text to the opening tag like this ="NSFW" appears as the spoiler title.

: "NSFW" • show
This is a spoiler.

The internet archive is a wonderful thing.



I suggest you save a version on your computer, just in case.

Eric V Arachnid probably could have helped you, if you asked him nicely.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I did save a version of it on my computer, just in case, but I lost it there as well. (This is before I learned about Google Drive, now I find everything, from anywhere.)  ;)

I thought about asking Eric V Arachnid, nicely, but I haven’t seen him around much lately, so I didn’t know if I should bother him with it.:(  As you can see, I don’t have a problem bothering
you--Recusant, Tank and/or The Asmo--with anything at any time. You guys are always here.

Again, thank you.

I'm surprised that Asmo is trying to propagate the forum with the old content which is a faff when we could have just done a do-over as the backup seems to be outdated.

The age of the last backup is not the problem. In fact, the image of the DB from the day HAF went down "exists".

Crow! You're back!
I've missed you, my grumpy, but not lumpy, friend.  :)

Alright Mags!

I come across as grumpy, darn it. I'm rarely grumpy to be honest even less so recently.
