Discussion about possibly moving away from Discourse.
@anotherusername The per-topic post ID should be relative to posting order, not display order, and should be immutable; even if a post is deleted (or moved to a different topic, which is deletion as far as the first topic is concerned), IDs should not change. Usenet clients collapsed ranges that included nonexistent posts (I think). Moving posts back and forth between topics is a special (hopefully uncommon) case that needs more thought than I have time to give it this morning. I'm really late getting ready for work.

alt. Discourse Encouragement Fund
A fund used to pay independent developers who contribute to the Discourse codebase [source]. This is supposed to be a Good Thing™ since Discurse is technically OSS, but since TCotCDCK is making money off of this bloated monstrosity, it's really only right that they pay people who contribute to their software.

@bb36e said in NodeBB write API?:
@accalia interesting...so looks like sockbot relies on HTML parsing? bummer, I'd need to deal with interop between python and node...
HTML parsing? only when it's mucking about with raw posts for command parsing.
the actual API is JSON based. you should be able to crib off of sockbot so long as there's a python package that does a websocket client.

@ben_lubar said in You're welcome, front page commenters!:
Blocking comments that end with the commenter's name as a link would probably block a significant amount of spam and approximately zero legitimate comments from people who aren't intentionally trying to make a reference to this type of spam.
On another forum I used to frequent, there was a guy who signed every post with his name, email style. He wouldn't be happy with this rule.
Did he invent mayonnaise?

Not sure what happened there thanks @accalia
looks like the .. ending to your sentance got gobbled by the link and github is intolerant of trailing characters in commit hashes?
either that or your cat walked on your keyboard at the wrong time.

@boomzilla said in Feet-Sure request: 'Post Read' marker or counter:
@scholrlea It's not great, but as a sort of workaround, remove everything from the URL that comes after the title and you'll get the "Navigate to your last read" (or whatever) toaster.
This doesn't work if you enter in at a later point than you left (e.g., you click a notification about someone replying to you, a hundred posts down from where you were).
Yeah, kinda sucks that the bookmark is instantly updated in that case...

All this is assuming, of course, that we want to use the same sort of requirements that Discourse does.
That depends on whether someone can come up with a set that's more likely to induce blakeyrants.
Must downvote a post that has 6 upvotes if the month has an E in it
Must post to a thread with more than 41 already extant posts, but less than 43, on a day ending in Y, at least once every 32 days.
must view 5 posts a day for at least 54.65 seconds for 18 days in a row
must have at least 13 posts with at least 5 dislikes in a rolling 67 day period
must have had exactly 4 posts flagged for moderation in a rolling 71 day period
How am I doing?
must join all novelty groups
Those were the requirements for joining one.

No. We started referring to your posts as autistic screeching when you started calling anyone and everyone who disagreed with you a Nazi and said that anyone who disagreed with your ideas should be punched.

Yes, but that's where we plan.
@lorne-kates i never even noticed either, and i've been around a lot recently for no reason. although i generally avoided fox topics because he was a special kind of annoying, and in those topics people I normally like in discussions would become insufferable.
@ben_lubar said in nodebb-plugin-post-revisions feedback:
@izzion said in nodebb-plugin-post-revisions feedback:
When you submit a new edit, the regular edit pencil is all that shows on the post until you reload the post, and you cannot view edit history until you reload the post. The reload can be effected by either refreshing the page or scrolling far enough away from the post that it unloads, then scrolling back to it. I haven't tried to confirm if I get the same behavior on someone else's edited post that streamed to me, but 100% reproduction rate on my own posts.
This is not resolved, unfortunately. The edit pencil is now showing the appearance of "you can view edit history of this post" for a streamed in edit, but you cannot actually click to view the edits until reloading the post - clicking on the edit pencil behaves as though I had my view post history disabled (aka, nothing happens).

@ben_lubar said in How in the hell does this feature work?:
Apart from CPU cache stuff,
Yeah, apart from what's probably the main bottleneck on a modern system, the difference is pretty negligible...
Besides, the innermost loop essentially extracts a few bits from each pixel channel and then compares it to some magic values (of which you can keep all three sets in the cache, incidentally). The first part (extracting the bits) is the same for each payload. You do it three times, but only need to do it once. (I'm assuming that the branch is taken relatively rarely.)
Well, we are talking web scale, where it's apparently dandy to consume 1.6GB of RAM to serve a mostly idle website, so inefficient loops are perfectly cromulent!
