Times a Changin’ Update

Wow… the more things change, the more they stay the same, eh?

Paradoxdruid’s Rants is now restored. I made a mistake on the forum– It’s cooler software, but it doesn’t have the heart (or the accessibility) of our good ole’ fashioned blog.

Welcome back, and may the posting resume!

I do like the accessibility of the blog (and I’m very happy that the linkdump is back), but there are a few things that I’d like to address:

* Under “Last Comments,” could you make it post the date (and maybe time) that the last comment was posted, and not simply the time as it is showing now? The time displayed without the date seems rather… silly.

* Could you make profiles of registered users here as you had on the forum? (Or at least copy and paste people’s roll call postings?)

* Any way to show who’s currently on the blog as you could see on the forum?

And that’s pretty much all I can think of to complain about right now… Also, my username/password doesn’t seem to exist anymore (or I’ve, um, forgotten them), so maybe you could restore that, please? Thanks, PD 🙂

Thanks for the advice, Teisha!

I posted the roll-call, which was a good idea. I don’t think I can actively show who’s online (which some posters may consider a blessing).

I remember having some trouble with displaying dates on the recent comments, but I’ll play with it more later.

Oh, I thought to mention one thing:

I’m still working out how to display it differently, but if you move your mouse-cursor over the names of the posters in the “Last Comments” section, it displays the date and time of the comment. just FYI. 🙂

Wow, that’s great — especially adjusting for time zones!

I don’t know if this is happening for anyone else (and I am using a library computer), but right now all the right frames (“The Forum,” “Calendar,” “Last Comments,” etc) are slightly overlapping the middle section, where the new posts go, so that part of the new post heading and number of comments link is a little blocked. Anybody else having this issue? Maybe I should look at it through my home computer next time to see if it’s consistently flawed…

I’ve noticed this issue, as well, and it seems to be related to Internet Explorer not properly formatting the CSS code. I’ll check into the pivotlog.net forum and see if there is a known fix (besides getting a browser which works right).

Okay, I’ll admit that it’s entirely possible that I am the last person to learn about this website*, but it’s really addictive.
