I also came over just to lurk.
It's about time someone updated - babysitting old code must be an ugly waste of time...
...it's good to be back...

Some of the secrets to keeping the old forum running died with Cortana, but really I think the size of the posts database was well past the point of what the hardware and/or software could easily handle.

I'm member # 69 now. Ahhh yiss.


I made a greasemonkey script that moves the user portfolios to the left, makes the forum use the entire browser width, moves the link to MT on the forums navigation, and removes signatures. Cause I hates them forevers.
Only tested in Firefox.
Seems to work in Chrome with Tampermonkey with one minor issue: in post mode, the user info on the left disappears (still takes space, but is blank).
Edit: the second .postbody width is what is causing it, of course (now that I actually look at it).
I found that changing the second style change in the "// Profiles belong on the left!" section to:

Code: Select all

GM_addStyle ( " !.topicreview .post .postbody { float: right; width: calc(100% - 230px);}" );
fixed it.

Unfashionably late, as usual. But wow.

Is Cracky still around? I feel like I rediscover this place every year or so.

Nope, Omo, Char, Ray, Chemi and me seem to be the only survivors from the old regime with some of us getting promotions. New on board are Klange, DM, paarfi and Kalium

EDIT: Say, DM, aren't I an "Old Fart" by definition?
As Keith Richards said when asked if he wears boxers or briefs:
"Depends."

How long has it been since you were trapped in a bottle? :?
You know how when you do laundry, you have that one sock left that doesn't match any of the others? That's me.

Dang, I was wondering what was going on with the forums. I was a little scared for awhile.

(Been frequenting this website for almost a decade, and I plan on getting my boyfriend into the comic as well. I freaking love this place.)

I'm glad for the revamp, and this will take some getting used to. I'm just glad the old forums are still in an archive. The members' banter is often quite hilarious.

Made an account years ago, but hardly used it. I'll try to be around more.
