Re: Minor Improvement to [qs
That's a good idea.
I just remembered that a friend had a brother who legally changed his name to "3". I met him once at a wedding and that's how he wanted to be addressed.

Yeah, me too, and I'm tired of image links going dead. I'd like to add two things:

Copy any image posted here to the server as long as it isn't too big.
Add drag/drop for images into messages.

The first one is straightforward
Then please do it; don't wait for the perfect.
I just spent 25 minutes trying and failing to post an image I can do in seconds with most other sites by snipping, copying to my clipboard and posting directly. But adding (img) copied image (/img) is no hardship.

Was the problem that the image was only on your machine and not accessible from the Internet? If yes then I understand the issue, but if no then I need to understand this better.

I can't make 'copy image' or 'copy image address' work for that. Or hacking out redirects or other hacks...
It's the image at #6,396 on page 320
Roll up, roll up | Page 320 | Fly Fishing Forum
But of course I can't just snip the image onto my machine and upload it to EVC either.

You've encountered a bug with the [img] code. It might be because your image's URL has commas in it, and commas are used by the [img] code to separate multiple images from one another when being displayed by a single [img] code.
I'm in the middle of something else right now, but I'll get to this as soon as I can. In the meantime, use "peek" to see how to display that image:

A curiosity, Boss.
In Message 157 your four kisses are not displaying any of your lover's names. I cannot find any other example in my short look at other kissed messages. I did a hard reset, no change. Win 10 Chrome version latest/greatest. FYI

Re: Just a moment...
My guess is that the links are initially opening with a bot check page (of sorts) titled "just a moment...". But it sure seems to do that bot check extremely fast, so fast you don't even see the "just a moment..." page.
Personally, I don't like the automatically created "page name as link display", because that created is sometimes (such as your example) bogus.

Do Nothing
Sometimes we forget to appreciate the richness of the smaller features on this platform. The Do Nothing Button is one such feature. Its creation was a response to fumble fingers on small screens but it has transcended that function to become a fount of inscrutable philosophy and fortune cookie aphorisms.
To wit:
Gasoline approaches at high velocity!
The legend of the raven's roar gambles with lives, happiness, and even destiny itself!
Passion or serendipity was always the second best.
A great silence keeps the doctor away.
Everything and more lay down on the riverbed.
I cannot think of any other internet platform providing such intellectually stimulating offerings outside its major function.
So, just FYI, it still works.

Re: Do Nothing
Wait, I installed and augmented this stuff. Where the hell did this one come from. I don't remember this one:
quote:
A cat on a hot tin roof is f***ing cosmopolitan, having a trained assassin stay overnight, letting heartbreaking lies roll over us like a summer breeze.
I had a few ideas and added some more. More ideas welcome.

Re: Do Nothing
I once again tried to investigate the menu system, to try to understand how you implemented the "Do Nothing Button". But to get into it requires "Director" status, and a while back you demoted me to mere "Admin". I think, at the time, there may of been some security issuers happening.

Or something like that©.

Re: Do Nothing
It’s not a control panel thing. It’s a JavaScript thing. I think you can only view the HTML source on a laptop or desktop. You open the right click menu on a webpage, then select “View HTML Source” or something like that. Somewhere on the first 20 or 30 lines there will be a link to a file called dBoard.js. Click on it, then go to the bottom of the page. You’ll see the Do Nothing code.
