looks like phase 7 is complete
My brain already does that.
Actually, that is a bit harsh. Currently all they're doing is making me laugh. I don't really know why it's funny.
My biggest DiS bugbear today is that I spent a minute writing a really excellent post, and when I pressed 'post reply' instead of coming up with the login dialog box, it went to a different screen, made me put in my info and then lost my post.
Also, I was already logged in.
It's on now.
actually amazing. no more clicking on threads i've already read/not clicking on ones that i haven't
YOU'VE BEEN LOGGED BACK IN, YOU'VE BEEN LOGGED BACK IN, YOU'VE BEEN LOGGED BACK IN.
YOU'VE BEEN LOGGED BACK IN, YOU'VE BEEN LOGGED BACK IN.
IT'S LOGGED ME STRAIGHT BACK OUT, IT'S LOGGED ME STRAIGHT BACK OUT
WE'RE DOWN FOR MAINTENANCE!
BACK SOON! BACK SOON! WITH BLUE DOTS!!!
(I got logged out trying to post this so had to do it again. is it depressing i thought it was worth re-typing? maybe)
ALL WORSHIP THE BLUE DOTS, FOR THEY BRING ENLIGHTENMENT
They're unsightly. Also, can you fix the reloading-the-whole-page-whenever-one-posts problem first? Also the logging-one-out-randomly problem? And any other kinks still left to (re)discover (again and again)?
its awfully depressed when it just shows all the shit 0-reply threads ive started
They don't work. Hopefully this 1 new message in my inbox will explain everything.
Nonetheless I like them.
I just opened two or three threads from down the bottom of the social board page and yet the blue dots don't disappears or change into yellow triangles or anything
since most of the posts atm are UNREAD, they'll be filled blue. i think that it should work after a few days of settling out
when I posted that they didn't work
then I got logged out
then the site was down for maintenance for a minute or two
then they worked but are pointless
I realise what they do
Unless the blue dots change once the thread is read into more blue dots. Or it's some sort of mind trick given how it logs the user out every visit.
and the boards move so quickly that having read/unread markers is more or less pointless.
I also just got told BAD GATEWAY when I tried posting this. Let's try again and see what happens...
they are completely pointless
just wrote a (semi-scathing) reply to this and then GUESS WHAT? i had to log in again so it was lost.
anyway the gist was about sean's post from a few months ago when he was "I'm so excited about all the amazing improvements we are going to be adding to the site - they're going to blow your minds!!!!11111"
good one craig
Keeps on telling me I am and as soon as I go to another page I'm logged out again.
this is fucking mental
the first person to have no blue dots for all the topics on the front page and posts proof wins.
there could also be a point system
all the points could be gained daily and the person with the most points at the end of the year being named king/queen of dis. alternatively, if playing the game breaks the website, everybody wins.
i might kill myself
i may also kill myself
STUPID BAD GATEWAY.
I think we should have more warnings about old supermarkets. YOUR POST WASN'T ALLOWED BECAUSE OF SHITTY BEJAM.
YOUR POST WASN'T ALLOWED BECAUSE OF NETTO: HAVE YOU TRIED SLAPPING YOUR FIVE YEAR OLD?
I think Gateway got bought by Safeways. Or... something.
Then WHO BOUGHT SAFEWAY? [spooky music]
I LIVE FOR BULLET POINTS. ESPECIALLY COLOURED ONES.
the board now looks like my cv. and my cv is fucking cool
it makes the board look less boardy. and so less suspicuious to my colleagues
Please can we keep the dots.
I thought he was trying to combine "suspicious" and "conspicuous". I blame DiS's formerly frequently misplaced replies. They have led me to believe anything may be a reply to anything. Also, I only got 3 hours of sleep.
They really don't work AT ALL
can you turn them off please?
and it probably explains why I've just been drawing dots in my recipe book.
or maybe noughts and crosses. Blue dots=noughts and crosses will appear for all the threads you have read
I love the responses to a fairly minor change. It's like when you watching telly and someone changes channel for no reason.
