Played it today with my 9-year-old daughter. We both played it for the first time. She won

That looks very interesting. Can you also list (or remove) unwanted updates which have already been installed?-phitsc (September 09, 2015, 05:26 AM)
That's what the script I wrote up here does, although it just goes ahead and uninstalls them, (or at least tries).
But I was thinking of combining it with this one since it can use the same list of unwanted KBs.-4wd (September 09, 2015, 05:37 AM)
I thought I had visited the supporters yearbook after the upgrade, but now I can't find it any more.-phitsc (September 09, 2015, 04:13 AM)

I think @phitsc means how do you get to it, I can't find a link on the forum to it either.
EDIT: Found it, the supporters link in the fifth paragraph on the About page. I think it could be buried a little deeper-4wd (September 09, 2015, 06:46 AM)
^ Ah okay - you had moved the info-center - I thought you were talking about the default setting.Try it Tom, because at whatever level of fanciness you work on, "nothing else matters". The scripts behind it are Turbo Fast at collecting posts, and if you look at time stamps (in the same area) you know that if you check it 4x a day you're mostly caught up. At worst, if you *know* there's a thread missing like my Ludum Dare adventures, you turn to one of the bigger pages and find it. But it really is damn close to a Golden Mean to keep reg DC folks updated.
I still wonder if the info-center / active-thread should be on top in the default setting (I guess it would have to be separated from the other info, but dont know really - must try it at the top myself, see how I like it).-tomos (September 03, 2015, 07:34 AM)-TaoPhoenix (September 03, 2015, 12:20 PM)
Or just use Unread: All and always *know* you're up to date... right? I'm confused why people like the other approach frankly. It seems haphazard. But I've certainly come to realize that my consistent use of Unread: All pages is not really the norm, so maybe I'm the weirdo.

Maybe not the norm, but it is the approach that I use also.-wraith808 (September 03, 2015, 10:14 PM)
Ok, was searching this thread because I wanted to make a suggestion: how about we come up with some original content to celebrate the switch to a proper cms. Was thinking about stuff like reviews, short stories, new SW, member discounts, whatever.-phitsc (September 02, 2015, 04:06 PM)
Do you mean this suggestion Phil? We are working like mad on the CMS at the moment and I fear mousers brain is close to exploding with everything that needs doing so he may have simply overlooked it-Stephen66515 (September 03, 2015, 10:27 AM)
I've tweaked the search function a little bit -- I think i fixed a bug where it was returning less results than it should. And I also added an option to bypass the search index on the advanced search form -- this will result in a slower and more thorough search for partial word matches, and is able to search for words less than 4 characters. Normal indexed searching is appropriate for most searches, but you now have an option if you can't find something with a default search.-mouser (September 02, 2015, 06:14 PM)
Ooo, more RSS reader options to investigate! I'm not sure if I'm more excited or dreading the possible desire to switch, haha. But Bazqux sounds promising.

I don't. But works with uBlock Origin just as well. ThanksNevertheless, @mouser, I would prefer '-translate', if it's easy to do.I assume you use AbBlockPro (Assuming cause...well...I don't know anybody that doesn't) - if so, click the icon, click "block element" then click the translate box (and anything else you wanna hide) - they are now gone-phitsc (September 01, 2015, 01:19 AM)-Stephen66515 (September 01, 2015, 02:24 AM)
Concerning the translate box: harmless, yes, a distraction non the less.-phitsc (August 31, 2015, 03:41 PM)
For Firefox, the Remove It Permanently add-on seems to work toward this end.
For Chrome, I tried Page Eraser, but didn't figure out how to get it to work across an entire site.
Just tried Stylebot with some success -- right click on element, choose 'Stylebot', choose 'Style Element', look for the 'Layout & Visibility' section, and click on the 'Hide' button. Not ideal perhaps and may not work specific elements only, but at least it can hide the 'Translate' pop-up...
Don't know about other browsers / platforms.-ewemoa (August 31, 2015, 08:51 PM)
I tried the '-nosocial' thing and it seems to work, thanks.
But may be we can call it 'antisocial' or '-social' instead?
On a related note, is there a way to view the content of a thread in a way such that one can see reply to a particular post appearing immediately after the post-being-replied to? I think this is sometimes referred to as a "threaded" view (e.g. one of gmane.org's views is like this). May be there's other ways, but with that type of view, it might be easier to follow some of the "contained" sub-discussions...-ewemoa (August 31, 2015, 06:11 PM)
Is there any way I can hide the social media buttons and the translate drop down box at the bottom of each page? I don't need them and they bother me.
If you go to the Forum Profile page of your profile, you will now see a new "Custom options:" item. I will now use that for supporting miscelaneous advanced/custom options. If you put -nosocial in that box, it will no longer add the social bookmarking items to your forum pages, or google analytitcs code, protecting you from any privacy concerns. Translate box still shows because it is completely harmless.-mouser (August 31, 2015, 11:55 AM)
