I could just add a style for h2 and then people could use it to break up threads in whatever way makes sense for the topic.

Obv risk of hijinx but where would we be without a jinx or two?

I just ... look at the episode guide on imdb and then read the thread until I get close to that date?

pplains, Monday, 10 June 2019 12:45 (eight months ago) link

US/UK sometimes have different dates. Tbh if people just marked their posts "S01 E6" or something that'd work too.

$5 per FP buy back

But FPs can only be bought back in total. If you have 45 FPs, you have to buy them all back.

seriously why is ILX in georgia instead of times new roman for me now : (

j., Tuesday, 9 July 2019 13:24 (seven months ago) link

I appear to have the same with the old.css

Marty8501 (Marty Innerlogic), Tuesday, 9 July 2019 13:27 (seven months ago) link

Switch to caek.css if you can bear the ultra-wide images and crave Times New Roman

stet, Tuesday, 9 July 2019 13:30 (seven months ago) link

Georgia is a better web font.

it's how I've been looking at ilx since forever. think of it as tracer.css

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Tuesday, 9 July 2019 13:33 (seven months ago) link

but georgia is not what the stylesheet was showing me before!

body {
font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman", serif;


i checked to see if maybe i had only recently acquired georgia as a font, maybe in a microsoft office update, but it seems it's been sitting around, available to be used, on my computer for over a year. so i assume the stylesheet has changed?

j., Tuesday, 9 July 2019 13:37 (seven months ago) link

Yes, it has changed -- I set it to Georgia because it had no font set at all, and some browsers are showing madness as a default font. Personally I prefer it massively over TNR (especially on shitty displays).

stet, Tuesday, 9 July 2019 14:05 (seven months ago) link

can you change the priority with which the fonts are selected, or fork your modification into a different stylesheet? i think old should stay old!!

j., Tuesday, 9 July 2019 14:14 (seven months ago) link

yeah J i hated the switch to Georgia too, so now I’m using caek instead of old and it’s close enough

Screamin' Jay Gould (The Yellow Kid), Tuesday, 9 July 2019 14:14 (seven months ago) link

my ilx experience has improved markedly since i made wingdings my default font

coroner criticises butt (bizarro gazzara), Tuesday, 9 July 2019 14:16 (seven months ago) link

Priority won't matter because virtually everything has both TNR and Georgia. I'm looking into a font preference though.

stet, Tuesday, 9 July 2019 14:17 (seven months ago) link

god please this font is ludicrously monumental

j., Tuesday, 9 July 2019 20:19 (seven months ago) link

OK, that's available now on the style setting page. It's early days, but I think it at least does what you want -- choose old.css and set the dropdown to "Times New Roman".

stet, Wednesday, 10 July 2019 00:13 (seven months ago) link


i think it must have tweaked before i changed it, somehow, because i was once again getting TNR/old.css after you changed it, but when i went to site preferences and left the dropdown on default, confirming that took me back to the default for old.css, where georgia comes first. (naturally i just re-set the dropdown.)

This isn't a feature request, but it seems insane to me that there is no rolling thread about dating.

there is on 77, on ILE there's the OK Cupid thread that gets bumped occasionally and you could probably use for that purpose

president of deluded fruitcakes anonymous (silby), Thursday, 10 October 2019 17:48 (four months ago) link

that probably wouldn't be considered public info

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Thursday, 10 October 2019 17:53 (four months ago) link

do we have any, or a good/appropriate/agreed-upon, system for dealing with old-ass threads/posts where you said kinda dumb and offensive shit (or shit that could be taken out of context even) and are now, ten years later, vaguely anxious that someone could connect the dots and eventually link it back to you? like is it appropriate to ask mods to replace individual posts with "This post has been deleted by request of its poster" or sth? asking for a friend
