@Joyrex Is it possible your inbox is full? Sent you a pm a couple of weeks ago wrt my subscription.

@Joyrex this. it really does look like you can't see your PMs or your emails. can you let us know whether this is the case? you're not the ghosting type, i'm sure this is just a mistake.

I too thought that whenever the reactions came about here that they seemed somewhat juvenile. I don't do any social media stuff, so wasn't sure exactly what to make of them at first. but after people kept putting reactions on some of my posts, I decided it's only fair to respond in kind, and so started using them. I do think they are somewhat useful now, as it is essentially another way to communicate with the folks on here. I disagree about the "don't read don't care" part you mentioned, as everything I put a reaction on I have in fact read, and wanted the poster to know I agree with them - which is what I think the heart thing means? I do think the heart needs to be changed though to like a fist or something more manly, as this place is what, 99.9% guys? a bunch of dudes giving each other little hearts seems, um, well...

I kind of agree with this post.

I like the thanks/heart thing because it gives me a quick way to thank someone for an informative post or give a thumbs up to something cool without posting something that is just "Thanks" or "That's really cool". Maybe a good move is to enable all smileys to be in reactions, maybe not. I think it depends if this feature is used in the WATMM community in a cool and innovative way, and right now it seems that it is.

A bunch of dudes giving each other little hearts is in - my opinion - the wholesome content the internet needs more of. 🙂

I did some quick experimentation in Firefox dev console: removed reactions and topic snippet text from the threads because I feel that this way only the really important information is displayed without overloading the viewer with insane amounts of information.

Yeah I know this is a little bit backseat driver mode, however if there is interest I could try and set up a custom CSS override that anyone can use so that no server side changes are needed.

Good evening IDMates

Not sure where to post this, so here we are. I kind of twigged that StephenG/Hugh Mungus hasn’t been around for a while, then I clicked on his profile and last visit was middle of August. Is everything okay with him?Just thought I would ask. I don’t immerse myself within a lot of threads so maybe in the dark about something?

No; just been swamped in real life. Sorry - I think I have replied since then though.

Hmmm... so the icon doesn't show (FYI: this allows you to see all posts by this user in a thread) in the COVID thread, but does elsewhere? What is the COVID thread URL (since I know we have two)?

As mentioned, just been busy with real life... sorry!

Agreed - it also allows people to agree or express their thoughts on a thread without having to actually reply, which sometimes is all that's needed.

These are settings I can control I believe, so no need for custom CSS - good feedback though!

Sorry to hear that. Haven't gotten a response yet, says it's unread.

Ignored topics still appear on the main page under "general discussion" when they have recent posts

I'm at the mercy of the addon developer... let me see if he's introduced an update for this.

Just a lil bump to see if a fix for this has emerged

Save posts? you mean like a "read later" feature?

I reached out to the developer (again) - let's see what he says

Unsure if this has been mentioned before but previously were able to switch between different images in tomorrow harvest - there is a option to choose background but doesn’t seem to work

So you choose another background and it doesn't switch?

Ah, okay - There is an add-on that can do this - would anyone else have an interest in a feature like this?

No need for an add on to save posts, just print the thread.

Sorry if it's been covered but is the "display name history" still a thing? Can't seem to find it anymore on people's profiles.

With regard to "saving" posts, it's a forum and for all intents and purposes permanent, not some ephemeral 21st century situation. Wouldn't bookmarking a post accomplish the same thing?
