Have at it

Thrills! Spills! Bugs! Try it out and let me know if you have any issues. Requires entering your password, there just isn't a way around it. I don't do anything evil with it though.

If anyone can come up with a better icon - and really, anyone could come up with a better icon - let me know.

With help from diamonddave85, although he's not responsible for the bugs or the length of time it took.

Needs a way to change background color, though.

Christine Green Leafy Dragon Indigo, Tuesday, 21 February 2017 02:09 (one year ago) Permalink

I haven't seen the issue with the boards. What phone / Android version?

I'll look into those other requests. The background color thing shouldn't be tough. Might do.something about the typeface as well although Android doesn't make it easy.

S7 Edge, Android 6.0.1. It doesn't seem to save the chosen boards correctly, keeps a few but adds a random bunch more.

NI, Tuesday, 21 February 2017 04:35 (one year ago) Permalink

Yeah I have something similar with the boards. In my case I only have ILM and ILE saved but I'm seeing a bunch of threads from other boards under New Answers. Also S7 Edge, Android 6.0.1.

Interesting. That shouldn't be ... will check out.

There are a few other known issues: sometimes will crash after coming back from a long sleep, and sometimes will get into a broken state when it fails to reach the server. Killing and restarting the app fixes.

Kind of a small annoyance but if I scroll halfway down the list of threads, open one, read it and then hit the Back button on my phone to return to the list, I'm returned to the top of the list rather than the point where I left off. If that could be fixed then great, if not no biggie.

heaven parker (anagram), Wednesday, 22 February 2017 09:45 (one year ago) Permalink

Is there a minimum Android version for this? Doesn't seem to work properly on my phone, for instance "I only have ILM and ILE saved but I'm seeing a bunch of threads from other boards under New Answers" - there's no obvious way to select which boards appear on New Answers, they're all there. I think I'm on 4.4.

Transform All Suffering Into Poo (Colonel Poo), Wednesday, 22 February 2017 09:49 (one year ago) Permalink

same on Android 7.1.2 , I can select and deselect boards with individual sliders and it remembers my choices but there's no effect on the post list (oh hey, I'm on 77? I don't remember if I knew that)

and I can reply to some posts but not others.

StanM, Wednesday, 22 February 2017 10:05 (one year ago) Permalink

The board issue will be a quick fix. Still hoping to find a way to reproduce the posting issue.

Some people report this with Zing too; this might not be Flagging-specific. If you can figure out lukas I'd love to know

Are there maybe different server/instance values I should use?

Fixed a silly problem with posting replies to threads, guessing this is the bug people are seeing. Also fixed seeing threads from disabled boards. Won't be able to push this update until tonight tho.

four weeks pass...

just my two cents, but I'd prefer clicking bookmark on a thread did not automatically send me back to the list of bookmarks - it's something my thumb does while my eyes are still reading the bottom couple of posts. maybe it could be made optional?

Just updated(!) and yeah would love it if this could be optional as I'm experiencing the same...

kinder, Saturday, 23 September 2017 09:55 (seven months ago) Permalink

I adore the fact that you click on a bookmark and it takes you back to the list of bookmarks. Making it optional so I can keep this behaviour would be cool.

barbarian radge (NotEnough), Saturday, 23 September 2017 16:43 (seven months ago) Permalink

haha i'm now actually kind of used to it so yeah i stand behind the idea of making it optional :D

but i stand behind adding search, full list of one's bookmarks, some kind of Control-F, and Flag Post as the most critical features missing, versus desktop ILX. still a hell of an app, gets that low-impact ILX vibe totally.

Doctor Casino, Saturday, 23 September 2017 16:54 (seven months ago) Permalink

not supporting flag post yet is kinda hilarious

While you are updating: would it be possible to remove the title of the last visited bookmark when there are no more unread bookmarks?

ArchCarrier, Friday, 10 November 2017 22:13 (five months ago) Permalink

deleted threads persist in board lists/sna as well as bookmark. can't remove them from the latter by the long-press method (get "server error" pop-up message).

opened flagging for the first time in a week and bookmarks appeared for every single bookmarked thread that had been updated since then. these bookmarks now exist in other browsers as well and have to be cleared/updated one by one

mookieproof, Thursday, 18 January 2018 21:37 (three months ago) Permalink

Isn't that the way bookmarks work?

ArchCarrier, Friday, 19 January 2018 13:45 (three months ago) Permalink

you dan't do this in Flagging, but in a browser go to Bookmarks. You can mass-delete bookmarks from there.

e-woke (NotEnough), Friday, 19 January 2018 14:15 (three months ago) Permalink

mookie's wording is a little confusing but I THINK what's being referred to is the bug discussed upthread, where on browsers on the same device, the top of SNA is piled high with pages and pages of "updated" bookmarks for threads you've long since caught up on in flagging or on your desktop. it's really weird tbh.

I have this issue on both flagging and regular ILX on my work computer. Don't have this on my phone or home computer.

Moodles, Friday, 19 January 2018 19:22 (three months ago) Permalink

for me, flagging is always up to date, but since I started using it, using ilx in-browser on my phone (really only necessary due to lack of search function, bookmark-browsing, and control-F) has been suffering this problem. super weird.

Righteous wax chaperone, rotating Wingdings (Doctor Casino), Friday, 19 January 2018 19:38 (three months ago) Permalink

Same, I just choose to use my chrome browser instead. Don't know what keeps it from syncing across devices. This was a problem before flagging.

Moodles, Friday, 19 January 2018 20:50 (three months ago) Permalink

Strangely, that doesn't happen with me at all- bookmarks sync perfectly across flagging/phone chrome/desktop chrome.

e-woke (NotEnough), Friday, 19 January 2018 22:20 (three months ago) Permalink

Yeah, same here.

ArchCarrier, Saturday, 20 January 2018 06:30 (three months ago) Permalink

a new wrinkle: flagging isn't picking up that i changed my display name over in browser land. or perhaps ilx isn't telling itself that the DN is different anywhere besides this phone's browser. but... why would that be?

Just wondering: why doesn't Flagging use the bookmark function to load threads? Very long threads (for example, 'pitchfork is dumb') take a long time to load in Flagging, while it's instantaneous in a browser.

ArchCarrier, Monday, 19 February 2018 13:25 (two months ago) Permalink

Hi. I released a thing with some tweaks. If anyone is encountering bugs with posting, I'm eager to hear about it.

AC, are you loading the pitchfork thread from SNA or bookmarks?

Uhura Mazda (lukas), Monday, 5 March 2018 02:28 (one month ago) Permalink

Thanks for all the work you're putting into this!

- where do I click to go to the top of a thread? (new feature?)

- sometimes, threads just don't load - today, I haven't been able to open "Talking Heads - Classic or Dud?" at all. Spinning wheel & there it hangs forever.
Cleaning cache, restarting phone, uninstalling the app & reinstalling, wifi at work, mobile data everywhere, wifi at home: nothing. And tomorrow (or next time I try, it'll probably just open as if nothing
happened. Okay, it's Android 8.1.0 now, but even when I wasn't in the beta program I had this sometimes.

StanM, Monday, 5 March 2018 15:46 (one month ago) Permalink

For tap to top, scroll up a bit until the thread title appears, then tap it. You can also tap on tabs for SNA / Bookmarks / Boards to go to the top of those lists.

Every thread failing to load (so far) has been the server spitting out XML a little differently than I expected. Will take a look at that one.

Uhura Mazda (lukas), Monday, 5 March 2018 20:47 (one month ago) Permalink

Hmm I see the issue now with threads loaded from bookmarks loading the whole world :( will take a look at that too.
