    ah-hah! you're why i was getting warnings about something using too much memory and being aborted. :) anyway, yeah, pictures have to be smallish or they will fail.

    fwiw, i rarely put notifications on things i'm wiggling from the mod queue, let alone explanations, because i don't see the point, there's no mystery about where they go or why.

    McAfee is terrible?

    Real answer: probably a certificate needs updated, or it has been but it hasn't made it through to you yet
     
  4. mcafee is terrible. this laptop came with it and i didn't get rid of the website scanner when i got rid of the rest of it because idk i thought maybe it'd be handy.

    hasn't happened since, but i thought maybe i should bring it to someone's attention

    So, they've got us listed as a "malicious site", but I can't find anything that gives any additional details or allows requesting them.

    so it turns out that i probably get to have a proper "yes everything stops working until this gets updated" because of PHP fuckery, so there will be an interval during which the site will probably be weird or offline.

    ... and i forgot that someone has to approve posts, so i went ahead and did that before this showed up.

    Feature request: A button like the NSFW button for 18+, to indicate that someone prefers no interaction from minors even if it doesn´t contain porn.

    Bug, though it seems like the sort of thing that might be baked into Xenforo: if you post with a subaccount in a thread you're banned from on your main, you don't get notifications on that subaccount's activity page for new posts in the thread.

    Not a bug, feature, or request, but a query: on the front page, why does number of positive ratings not have a comma when it's over 1,000? In contrast, number of messages gets a comma, and so does the number of positive ratings if you're looking at the user profile.

    I got logged out to reauthenticate today, and noticed that the "we're aware that mcaffee is reporting this as a suspicious site" message is still up. Has that been fixed and forgotten, or is it still being worked on?

    it's fixed, i forgot to take the message down.

    This is probably going to sound REALLY stupid, but is there any way we could edit the font so it's easier to tell the different between 0 & o/O? I'm personally having a hard time differentiating the two on posts.

    can you name a font where they’re well differentiated?

    What font are we currently using? It seems to resemble Times New Roman, but the zeros look different from Times New Roman...

    0 o O
    This is Ariel, it differentiates it better (the 0 is more of an oval rather than a circle)

    0 o O
    This one is Tahoma, it seems to also do that.

    0 o O
    I realized I can actually see the fonts in the text editor and it looks like we're using the font "Georgia".

    prismaticvoid Too Too Abstract

    I would like to request a serif font if we do change it, because a substantially different font will freak me (and probably more than a few other folks) out pretty bad
    (Times New Roman does in fact do the thing as well, so it would work)

    0 o O

    Times New Roman does differentiate the 0's from o/O's!

    It may be slightly smaller and thinner in text size, but it does the job perfectly!

    i just have a harder time reading full paragraphs in sans-serif fonts, so i always prefer serifs. (this is apparently common, because most style guidelines call for a serif font!) although having an option for both would be cool.

    I realize in retrospect that sans-serif fonts are good for graphic design, perhaps not for a forum.

    EDIT: the sans-serif fonts mostly came to mind because I do a lot of graphic design work
