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.

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

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 (eight 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 (eight 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 (eight 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 (eight 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

I agree - or not, since you said it was NBD - it is mildly bothersome, btw, but I don't know how often it happens the other way round, i.e. someone actually posts a parenthesis-less link inside parentheses and doesn't leave a space

theoretically the link finder could check whether the opening bracket is after the http or before but if we try to make it aware of all possibilities we'll bring SkyNet online before we know it

(I may try this line next time my boss asks for something I don't want to do)

ever since twitter changed their site, links through to twitter posts on desktop - i.e. when images are off and you want to click through to see the tweet - usually result in a 'something went wrong' page on twitter, which stays that way even if you hack the referrer string off the URL! copying and pasting the tweet URL without the referrer string into a new browser window works. odd. i'm on Opera on a Mac.

neither of these are big deals but just since they crossed me mind:

can we embed youtube links that look like the urls you get when you click share, i.e. https://youtu.be/TuP86rfnR3A ?

vote against the first - it's very handy to be able to select and post Belgium links when you don't want to embed, rather than have to type open square bracket you are ell equals paste url close square bracket paste url again open square bracket backslash you are ell close square bracket

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 (three 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.
