Bugs/Feature Requests

  1. making posts deletable would be great. I mixed up my aliases and couldn't delete the post. (I edited it, but it isn't the same. In the concrete thread it doesn't matter because I've been called a name anyway, but this might be a problem in higher-stakes cases.)

    I'd also like a way to switch which name is the main or default one used when posting.

    I believe there should be a "login as user" button in the upper left of the forum.

    You have a point about post-deleting. I'll see whether I can turn it on. I normally don't like deleting as a thing because I dislike history-altering, but in this case it makes sense.

    EDIT: I think it's on now. You may have to use the "login as user" to delete a post made under another name.

    I've had it where it didn't keep me logged in as the sub and I didn't notice until after I posted. (it was nbd, I was just playing around with the feature at the time)

    I messed around with creating a sub account, and it turned out that for whatever reason, the first time I hit 'save' when creating a sub account, nothing happened, so then when I clicked it again it said the username was already in use - so I then created another sub with a slightly different username. Long story short, I now have several sub accounts when I only wanted one (though it's not a super big deal.)

    Is there any way to find all the posts you've liked? Because I can't figure it out.

    Bugs: When I use Chrome on my phone, it says the security certificate is out of date. Also I'll get logged out between posting a lot. This might be because I back out of the browser, so it thinks I closed it and logs me out? But then, I'm never logged out on my comp. It's annoying because I'll try to quote and write posts but not be able to because I'm apparently not logged in.

    This happens to me too, but it hasn't been logging me out.

  9. This is probably a no, but what about allowing the OP to delete a thread? I have posted a couple on my main that I have subsequently been really embarrassed about. This embarrassment always happens *before* anybody replies, so maybe only allowing it if nobody else has replied? That way only one person's history gets altered.

    I don't think we have a way to make thread-deletion conditional on whether other people have posted. I sort of dislike letting OPs delete threads because that can break a conversation other people are having. I agree that it'd probably be tolerable if only that person had posted, but I don't think the software can do that.

    Huh, that's odd. I am pretty sure the security certificate should be good for five years. It might be one of the parent certificates has an issue, but I don't know.

    It should be possible to report your own post, though, if you regret making a thread, I think? Would mean more work for seebs & co, but then they could delete the un-responded-to thread? Only thing I can think of without adding in deletion in general.

    I get this too, but ONLY on my phone. My computer doesn't give a crap. (I use chrome on both)

    I wonder whether I can get chrome on a phone and try this.

    EDIT: Yup. "Its security certificate is not trusted". I wonder if there's a way to find out more about this or get details, because I'm pretty sure the certificate is right. Unless someone else really IS intercepting it. But I don't see a way to get more details.

    Fixed it! Was missing intermediate certificates so some browsers couldn't verify the final one in the chain.

    Awesome, thanks! =D
    (And yeah, it was just chrome on my phone. On my comp it worked fine. Glad someone else was here to say so xD)

    Hug button, sorta like the like button but explicitly for sympathy rather than agreement/appreciation?

    I think it was @wes scripserat who mentioned this elsewhere, but it sounded really useful particularly for these forums.

    Hmm. I don't know how easy or hard it is to add things like that. It might be possible to just relabel "likes".

    No idea if this is possible, but I would appreciate subscript and superscript in post formatting.

    I know that there's a way to do hugs, but I'm not sure of the details. Renaming likes might just be easier. I think they need to get turned off at some step in the process, but when I saw it implemented elsewhere I was, well... just like now, not in on the technical side of things, unfortunately.
