  • You mean setting the avatar based on the post ID and not the user might not always work perfectly?

    Yes. The other day I cross-quoted Jeff from meta.d and got @tar's avatar in preview.

    Then again, that might have been Discourse trying to send me a message... I'll need a priest of TCoCDCK to help me interpret it...



  • You know what, I crossposted Attwood from meta.d as well, and I also got my own avatar in the Preview window. It was... disturbing to me, to see these awful things attributed to myself...
