My hope is that these eventually become obsolete.

But, uh, totally go ahead and use them in the meantime.

De Milite Inprudenti

Do you know what happens to knights who dare oppose me? They’re soundly beaten, torn to shreds, reduced to mere ashes, utterly and completely obliterated. No one can defeat the great and mighty (and—dare I say—quite handsome) Knarr'ator. I’m the best, most awesomest dragon there ever is, was, and will be. And yet here you stand, just a character in my story, challenging me like the fool you are. If you think you stand a chance against me, you’ve got another think coming.

But by all means, go ahead and try.

Slaying Song

It seems you’ve found yourself within
The troublesome affair
Of trekking through the timberland
To slay the dragon there.

They claim it a ferocious fiend;
However will you fare?

AFAIK, liking or associating with things that happen to be—but not because they are—considered "furry." Though someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I used Nimbus which has a "selected & scroll" option that lets you capture large segments of the page. I got the first two that way, but even then it broke after that. I ended up having to open up developer tools and completely hide the earlier posts to (glitchily) get the third.

You still want an image archive of the thread?

Am I doing this right? on 4/4/2019 8:21:48 PM

If you're going to change the background image, I'd strongly suggest using a <style> tag instead. It's much more "valid" and customizable than <body background> (the old, now deprecated way of doing it).

Also, you can put this HTML in a page script to keep the clutter off the page (or use HTML in tandem with the RTE if that's really your jam), or the global page script to apply it to all pages:

$PAGETEXT := "<style>
body {
  background-image: url('picture url');
</style>" + $PAGETEXT

I think it was decided that that would be too big a change in form from the classic CYS experience? If I did make light mode the default, it would also switch for anyone who already has the extension but never bothered changing their theme.

I'm also considering a one-time (or per-version) "welcome message" that mentions profile settings and maybe a changelog, etc. because that would also address the problem of users not realizing there actually are themes and settings to change.

I'm glad you brought up the second point! The typeface actually has an "uppercase" variant of its numerals that I'm going to use from now on because I definitely agree the default style isn't as great for heading-type text.

Also, I'm going to try a different format for the body typeface. My Ubuntu machine has had the same issue of not rendering its bold i but this new format seems to work.

How do you code "and/or"? on 2/26/2019 10:08:10 PM

In my experience, it's that AND, OR, and NOT break unless all of their operands are either = or != comparisons. Otherwise, AND and OR return 0 and NOT returns the operand unaltered.
