So let me get this straight...



  • Discourse warns you avatar changes might not take place right away, even though they (in my experience) always do. Ok, fine. Under-promise, over-deliver, etc.

    But long name changes, when you save those Discourse doesn't say shit about how long it'll take. But it turns out they don't actually change until you do a hard refresh (as far as I can tell). Huh.



  • It may be Different™ if you're changing your own stuff. I saw your old long name this morning (in another topic where someone mentioned your avatar change), and without any refreshing on my part I now see your new long name. But in that same topic, some of your posts still had the old avatar.

    Who knows, maybe Discourse accidentally implemented a true RNG.

    Vaguely related WTF: When you open the profile popup, presumably to get more information, you actually see less of the long name



  • I keep hovering my mouse over his long name expecting a popup to show me the full text. I have too much faith in Discourse.

    That's just how text-overflow: ellipsis works.

    To also get the full text to pop up, they'd have to add a title attribute to the <h2> tag with the same text.

    Any amount of faith in Discourse that is greater than zero is too much.

    As a side note, i like your new avatar.



  • Meh.

    I had to get rid of the black background version because it doesn't work well on this site at all.

    Now there's a bit of black background between the thing's legs and his cape, but if I remove it he comes out looking funky-weird because the frame I screenshotted is a weird mid-animation frame, so.

    I might chug on it some more when I get home, or just replace it.

    Nonsense, black background avatars work great on this site! Or are you going to tell me that we're :doing_it_wrong: and any avatars with non-white backgrounds should be round?



  • The original version he didn't have a nose because it blended-in with the black background. Now he has a nose, but also a weird black void beneath his cape.

    The void is a Hammerspace portal to that neverending pit where you keep all of your hatred?



  • Have you considered making a round avatar? You could clip most of the blackness out that way I think...
