stet/keith question or whoever is in charge of code these days

1) is it at all possible to make vimeo links embed like youtube does?

2) would it be possble to make youtube embeds be in 16:9 instead of 4:3?

youtube embeds are the raddest and i think its awesome they work so easy but these are just 2 suggestions to make them better

if its possible to do these 2 things w/o days and days of coding i think it would be cool!

thanks!

I'm not stet, Keith or in charge of code, but I can say that SBs are registering as they always have.

is it supposed to go to a white screen after you click the button?

sarahel, Thursday, 21 April 2011 03:41 (nine years ago) link

hmmm, no, it's supposed to go back to the thread with the post that you SB'd. Hopefully stet will see this tomorrow morning UK time.

usually happens when you are banned from a subforum iirc, and no the SB doesn't register

Ah, ok, yes, you were banned from I Rate Everything a year ago for some reason.

yo whatever update you guys just did about 10 minutes ago... when i click "bookmark" on a post it jumps me back to the top of the page now... anyway to change it back?

⚓ (gr8080), Tuesday, 31 January 2012 21:56 (nine years ago) link

From looking at the logs, most ppl click "Bookmark" then choose another of their bookmarks to read. So the thinking here is that it jumps you back to your bookmarks to save you scrolling or w/e.

It's taking a bit of getting used to, I admit. Can we give it a couple of days?

stet, Tuesday, 31 January 2012 21:58 (nine years ago) link

yeah i was a bit thrown by that, but i can see getting used to it

Saves a helluvalot of pressing on page up/home to go to the next bookmarked thread!

future debts collector (Le Bateau Ivre), Tuesday, 31 January 2012 22:01 (nine years ago) link

haha ok.

i was totally unaware until you changed it, but i guess my pattern is get to last post/post i want to stop on -> click bookmark -> read last post -> click permalink (so last post is now at top of page) -> pick from remaining bookmarks

so i guess you're saving me some clicks, i just need to re-train myself

From SNA, I open a bookmarked thread in a new tab, click 'Bookmark' in that thread, then open a new bookmarked thread from my SNA tab. So I do what the logs indicate, but not in the way it looks in the logs.

Ha, this is brilliant, and 2 hours ago would've saved me the trouble of looking up how to do Page Up/Home on a MacBook Pro (not before I accidentally managed to shut it down by pressing some combo of Apple key and what looked like it might be a Page Up button).

Thanks!

Les Tressle (useless chamber), Tuesday, 31 January 2012 22:12 (nine years ago) link

I don't like it, personally. But I do *tend* to read the last post before clicking the button, so I guess I can live with it if I have to. I usually click to SNA rather than other bookmarks.

yeah not feeling it.

another thing: if i bookmark something and then select that same bookmark once it jumps to the top of the page (like say i walked away from my computer for a while), it will take me to the OLD bookmark from that page

mostly i just dont like jumping back to the top of the page in general

it's not so bad that i'd quit ilx over it (i'd probably chew the tips off my fingers before i quit ilx) but i do find it deeply unpleasant and would prefer the option to turn it off

Something odd might be happening - at the moment, the 'second thoughts' thread has an answer from 37 minutes ago - but it doesn't show up on ILE's New Answer page at all, the most recent thread there is from 59 minutes ago. Is it cutting off the very top entry?

Andrew Farrell, Sunday, 30 August 2020 12:19 (six months ago) link

The post at the top of the most recent thread is by stet, but clearly it is too early to demand the democratisation of the 'pause' button that he has clearly developed.

Andrew Farrell, Sunday, 30 August 2020 12:20 (six months ago) link

It’s possible someone dropped it from SNA, will investigate later.

stet, Sunday, 30 August 2020 12:43 (six months ago) link

I had this happen sometime in the last week or two (I revived the 'beef beyond belief this week' thread). I assumed it was a mod decision and let it go.

Just stepped away for lunch, came back and...are my eyes deceiving me, or has the typeface on the borad just been changed? The typeface on the info under the posts remains unchanged, so I'm inclined to think I'm not just suffering a postprandial aneurysm here.

i just did a server restart, it's possible it lost your preference setting somehow — try resetting in preferences.

Yes, looks like that was it. Haven't paid enough attention to the style settings to realize I could change the typeface! Thanks.

There's a thing I've noticed in Zing the last couple of days where if a post ends with quote tags, the date/timestamp gets cut off. I think quoted text is the common factor, but I can't swear to it. Here's the most recent post where I noticed it: Joe Biden, Senator from Citibank (oops, DELAWARE), to Run for President

in all seriousness, can we do something to strip referral tags, or would that break other stuff?

Überschadenfreude (sleeve), Thursday, 14 January 2021 04:05 (one month ago) link

My understanding is that removing utm tags etc (which I'm not against attempting to do) only "hurts" the people who are buying the campaigns/using the analytics service. It doesn't really affect Facebook or Google, except by diminshing the value of their analytics tools by a micro-fraction. No?

stet, Thursday, 14 January 2021 13:18 (one month ago) link

If the goal is to avoid driving traffic or the appearance of traffic to social networks that are responsible for bad things, I have no idea why he’s obsessed with utm links rather than the thousands of tweets we all post every day.

𝔠𝔞𝔢𝔨 (caek), Thursday, 14 January 2021 16:03 (one month ago) link

I must say, Ive always wondered why so many ppl here are so reliant on tweets. A good half the time or more, the tweets are merely someone linkkng to an article on WashPo or NYT or whatever. Why not just post the damn article?

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Thursday, 14 January 2021 22:15 (one month ago) link

Because you don't need tags for tweets

Mr. Cacciatore (Moodles), Thursday, 14 January 2021 22:39 (one month ago) link

𝔠𝔞𝔢𝔨 (caek), Thursday, 14 January 2021 22:59 (one month ago) link

mostly people just have nothing to say themselves anymore so they just post some shit they read somewhere else

It’s best when posters provide no commentary of their own whatsoever- biggest problem with the bobbins threads on ILM is when people type into the text box instead of just pasting the YouTube link and running away

When particular posters come here to dump links and articles with nothing so much as a “why this is relevant” one-liner, and this is the majority of their posting activity, it makes me sad and annoyed.

If sic’s schtick about fbclid= tags is just a nuisance, then my personal feelings about various posters’ bullshit posting styles, which I keep almost entirely to myself, should be even less of one.

I’m barely on here anymore anyway, relative to the last couple of years.

otm! The tweets also take up a lot of visual space, relative to a link post, and take longer to load. However, this is a minor annoyance of mine, like, I do not think this is a horrible thing that should be fixed. Also, I support sic's anti utm stance, though primarily because I think editing the tags out when posting the link to ilx shows consideration and intent and discipline. Like, if I have to edit the "s" and the mobile urls out of youtubes, then people can do the same with fb links.

sarahell, Friday, 15 January 2021 00:51 (one month ago) link

This is a total joke of a point and I don’t even agree with Tombot in this or other specific instances, I have eyerolled* at a significant number of Tombot’s political posts (but because we’re on very different pages). Rather ilx has someone I disagree with but who usually makes his points than, for example, [SCENE MISSING]

i have never understood how accurate the "most viewed threads" info is. When it says 7189 reads in the past 5 minutes, that means 5000+ people are currently viewing the thread? It just doesn't seem possible we have that many lurkers at any given time.

Looking at the code, I think the "5 minutes" bit is wrong - I suspect this is an hourly figure. (The 5 minute trigger doesn't clear the read counts). Needs a bit of attention though to be sure - eg it's clearly not counting the referrers from the site. Will dig into it when I get a mo.

stet, Tuesday, 26 January 2021 10:57 (one month ago) link

just posting here to say that the issues I've had for years with my bookmarks not syncing across devices and apps no longer seems to be a problem. Not sure if that is due to changes with ILX or what, but it's a big relief for me.
