Thanks for the help.
Can we create a Science sub-forum?
First of all, science is the shit.
Secondly, I love science.
Thirdly, there are plenty of OT science/engineering crew.
Fourthly, science is the shit.
We have some hodge-podge mixture of tech sub-forums.
Teh New Hotness - for ipad3/iphone5, new tablets and general hotness
The Technology subsection but that only contains categories for Gizmos (Gadgets/toys), The Mac Shack (self defined), Home and Car Audio, and Computers and Programming.
Why not have a section for actual science news and discussion rather than having to go to OnTopic (political, religious, philosophical) or The Main. If I wanted to talk about the new space plan x-35 or the discovery of a 425 million year old fossil...I'd be left trying to squeeze that into somewhere it really doesn't belong.
That is all...is this even the right thread for this sort of recommendation?
Seriously asking, why is OT so slow? When will it be back to normal?
OT needs to add this, no questions asked
Reduces server load like crazy. No needing to hit F5. Someone posts, boom, it shows up like a chat room. NN has it, other forums im on has it. Its beneficial for busy crew threads like NFL or CFB crews who constantly F5 slowing the site down.
There really is literally no rational for not implementing that on OT. ZERO
I like this idea.
we'll get that in 2017 when faz is ready
Hey Fazle. I hear you are adding features. You know what would be a good one? A decent search engine on the site. The one we have now is really buggy and doesn't give good results... it also doesn't correctly search phrases you put in quotes like "higher avatar resolution" or "bleeding rectum".
Can lifetime subs get a special orb?
Is there [going to be?] a list of shit thats been changed / updated in the last week of mayhem.
why do people (non OGs, non lifetime) get access to the main forum when they dont have subs?
Would it be possible, either is a sticky in the main a site announcement or some prominent well known thread, to get updates on OT? I remember the days when pictures were posted of new servers, updates were given about new load balancers, and so on. I'm not asking for an open OT finances book. But, I feel that people knowing something is being done would help. For example "OT is running slow because server 2 went down, a new server has been ordered, 2-3 weeks delivery time, meanwhile we are recompiling the database to optimize it on our remaining servers." (I have no idea if that actually makes sense, just trying to give an example.)
Basically something to show some, or at least the big, stuff that goes on behind the scenes and let people know that steps are being taken. I mentioned the main forum because that is were most of us reside, I came here because the main forum thread became a real cluster.
Fazle said this morning that he updated the Tapatalk plugin 10 days ago. Is there a further update that needs applying?
brinkman, please be more specific in future. Hosted image support has been enabled for tapatalk. The plugin was already updated as emfuser mentioned
motion to create or possibly replace the conga subforum with a "Credit Card Points/Miles" subforum. We have a community here and sometimes things we want to talk about, we don't want to share w/ the points community outside of OT. Please consider. Thank you.
Please fix the android glitch. On my rooted phone with ad block there is no redirect, but on my galaxy tab w/ ics I get redirect if I touch the Grey areas.
How do i delete my account?
Don't go back on it.
Did the Hot Deals forum just recently become a paid forum?
I'm sure this question has been asked before but I don't have the ability to search, would be helpful if at least this forum was searchable, probably not the first time you've heard that either.
I'm gonna add to this thread because I'm lazy as fuck.
N-word allowance. You get like 10 a month. That way the hardcore racists can say whatever they want, but have to be judicious in their use. In a way you kinda make it more of a diss cuz you know that person used up one of his words. It honestly seems like the perfect balance between freedom of speech and curbing constant bad fellowship from some ot'ers.
Emfuser told me in another thread verbatim "it's a golly swell idea, i think fazle could implement the coding module easily. good work kafka."
I frequent another forum that has tagging for users (basically someone can put @user and it will notify the user) and I think it would be useful here. Can this be implemented?
Namesearchers like PlasticPants will love this feature.
I second it.
So... I guess I missed the cut off for OG status and have to pay to use OT now? I haven't been active on my account in forevAr, but I'm back!
i would like to change my name but the topic closed as of yesterday
