Topic: grey here, got a question for you all.


grey started this discussion 7.7 years ago #101

Because of the whole suspnsion thing, people had no idea what was going on or WTF mybookface was doning here in OtakuTalks stead. (including me at first. I thought we'd been hacked lol) So I want a easy was for me to be able to communticate with you all when the OtakuTalk when its down. Like 4chan's status blog or Tinychan's twitter. In it would of course say whats going on when OtakuTalk is down and talk about upcoming changes, new features, stuff like that, so its also kind of a development blog.
SO, what I'm asking is what should I use? Should I just use a twitter? What about blogger? I know a lot of programmers use Tumblr. I've seen a webmanga-ka use something called Posterious or something like that. What does Anon suggest?

I think you should use a tumblr; it fits the site best. Twitter is obnoxious. You could link to the tumblr on the site so we could bookmark it.

Correction, kind sir. Twitter's userbase that actually trys to tell the world about their lives through it is obnoxious. I use it for following shit like webcomics, nintendo, Xbox, kotaku, gizmodo, endagaget. Its useful.

Ah. Yeah, I'm not very experienced with twitter. Maybe it wouldn't suck.

You could talk to hobs about getting a board status feature added to OverTalk that lets sysops post a notice if something is going on with their site.

Interesting, how exactly does this work?

@previous
don't know yet, as I haven't seen the source for overtalk, but I'm thinking either the ability to edit your link to show a however explanation of what's going on,
OR
a small alert button in front of each name that shows the status of the site as picked by the admin from a list,
OR
giving sysops mod on AwfulTalk so they may post bulletins about their site status, and change their site link to the bulletins page when needed.

Oh hey, did not realize that was your project. BTW the nave bar is not showing up.

How comes the work on 1.6? It does not say what addon is going to be in it.

Anonymous D replied with this 7.7 years ago, 12 minutes later, 1 day after the original post[Top] #961

@previous
Which navbar?

1.6 is coming along. I've got markup pretty well fixed, just need to re-add plain url conversion. The bulletins addon will be updated so that admin/mods can see who posted a bulletin. The VIP mod will be included as well. The large images associated with the "Awesome" and "Invertsome" stylesheets will be removed and swapped for a link to the extended stylesheet area on my website. Hopefully All stylesheets will be uniform as far as function. Currently, some don't support bordered text, some hide the site title, and some attempt to re-align the post number to the far right, causing the partial drop where the post header extends beyond the post body at right. The proper way to fix the position of the post number is in the php itself. The only thing really holding up the release is the nagging issue of quoting and citations not inserting.

The one that has links to all the *talks

<Is this what you mean? I know I'm using 1.0 here so it maybe unrelated but this only seems to happen in Firefox for me. If the same thread is in another browser its fine.

Ah, that one. It has something to do with an iframe breakout feature LK added. Slysop seems to have found and disabled it on UniTalk, but I don't know enough php to do the same without making things crash. I'd like to make it an option in config to enable/disable iframe breakout.

> <Is this what you mean? I know I'm using 1.0 here so it maybe unrelated but this only seems to happen in Firefox for me. If the same thread is in another browser its fine.
That's exactly it. I haven't tried it in other browsers, since the only other one I have is IE7, and IE is shit by definition.

Navbar? You mean this: http://oosu.net/atbbs/?
Also I would recommend setting up a WordPress account somewhere, for your status blog.

If someone else made it that would be cool but I cannot. I don't have a goo enough net connection for gaming so I don't have steam.
