I appear to have the same with the old.css

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.)

Oh for a more innocent time when people who rolled their damn eyes were worst possible type of douchebag.

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

unashamed and trash (Unctious), Thursday, 10 October 2019 17:47 (four months ago) link

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

i can't out the friend in question but to my knowledge he has only ever posted under a handle that rhymes with "Lock door; bus Eno"

weird ilx but sb (Doctor Casino), Thursday, 10 October 2019 18:41 (four months ago) link

NU ilx is built on the ashes, misfortunes and bad posting of old ilx. To remove the past is to remove the present imo.

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:00 (four months ago) link

i dig that, i just like, occasionally wake up at night in a cold sweat for fear that my academic career might someday be derailed because of some post in 2006 where I was trying out being a combative internet zingbro or w/e

weird ilx but sb (Doctor Casino), Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:01 (four months ago) link

We've all been there iirc

(idk you could maybe ask a mod nicely and it will probably be removed and no-one will ever find it missing anyway?)

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:13 (four months ago) link

do you list "Doctor Casino" on your cv?

sarahell, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:16 (four months ago) link

Doctor Casino isn't your real name?! FP'd.

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:17 (four months ago) link

are you even a doctor?

sarahell, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:17 (four months ago) link

I'm muckraking through the Doctor's old posts now and... There's not a lot of doctorly advice there, I have to say

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:19 (four months ago) link

What about whether or not you should hit or stay on 13?

pplains, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:23 (four months ago) link

i thought this was the friends w/babies thread for a second and got confused by pplains' post

sarahell, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:25 (four months ago) link

Did you think it was a corporal punishment post or ... worse?

pplains, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:36 (four months ago) link

haha i do not list this on my CV but it's not that hard to make the connection, i was using this handle for a lot of things back in the mid-00s. sigh.

some drunk evening i'll pin down the 3 or 4 sad awful posts i have in mind and plead my case to a mod, thanks y'all!

weird ilx but sb (Doctor Casino), Friday, 11 October 2019 14:52 (four months ago) link

nah Doc whatever posts you fear being found will be needles in the haystack of your REM posts over years

and that is how it should be, forever and ever amen

every time the 77 invite request thread gets bumped I wish there was a way to remove all my posts from the depression/anxiety thread. I’m ridiculous, obv.
