I was hoping one of y'all would ban him and change his username to prove it.

Do tweets show up weird for anyone else? They used to be in that white frame, but now they look like quote boxes.

That happens to me if a tweet gets deleted on Twitter but I saw it posted on the forums before it got deleted so it's still in my cache.

The thread icons from the Age of Arc helped with immediate visual identification and added a lot of charm. I don't doubt that it would be difficult or impossible though, but I felt the need to restate it.

I'm looking into ways we can do it without requiring an admin action. Also want to see a finalized theme before we set a standard size for thread icons and smileys.

I'd say we have a finalized theme by now, right? <3

Yeah, but I think Mothra's kinda got a heavy workload these days.

I am in shrimp hell now but I should be out of the woods at the start of October so I'll take a look then.

In the meantime, if you can find anything related to a feature like that for phpBB boards, that'd help cut down on the "search aimlessly on google for information" step.

Oh, wait, it looks like Ghostery was blocking the site from properly showing twitter.

Is it still blocking us? If so, is there a way around it?

Ghostery would be blocking Twitter from being embedded in any web site. It's not Bronto specific.

It's a privacy addon/extension. Can probably just whitelist Twitter in it. Same goes for Disconnect, PrivacyBadger, NoScript rules, etc.

I'm toying with the idea of getting a VPS account with the same host, which would basically be the same, except they wouldn't care about using the space as a backup/dump (which I am doing with my phone photos), and it would be exponentially scarier to administrate. it doesn't really mean anything, but I just wanted to talk about my thoughts and feelings

You thinking about doing it to try out a VPS and figure out how it works?

Mothra can you unpin the old Dirty Santa thread and pin the new one? I'm going to desperately hope everyone gets me their info on time this year.

I'm also going to hope that our president suddenly pivots to a wonderful human being and becomes the greatest philanthropist of all time, and that's more likely than the first thing.
