This isn't Reddit.

Suggestions & Concerns / Re: On the Notion of Removing Attachments
« on: April 10, 2019, 08:04:27 PM »
If it is universal and also potentially affects avatars then we can notify people to switch to using a link instead of an upload/attachment. I don't know if this is the case in SMF.

It should be straightforward to disable attachments without disabling avatar uploads (I haven't looked, but even if this isn't an option already we can add it to SMF).

I'm interested in hearing what our users think of this change before I give my opinion.

Once full persistence is in, maybe we should start playing for real

This has been the idea for about the past 3 years now.

Note, however, that even once full persistence is in for the alpha, all the state is likely going to be reset for the final release so that everyone can start on a level footing (modulo ridiculously priced OP ships).

Yes you can.

The problem with removing the tag now is that it would break every use of it over the past 5 years. Otherwise I'd be willing to at least entertain the idea.


Remember the Concorde jet? that buzzard flew so high that it was practically in the same vacuum of space. At least 90% of the way there.

During testing, Concorde F-WTSB attained the highest altitude recorded in sustained level flight of a passenger aircraft of 68,000 ft, in June 1973.ármán_line

Are you trying to tell me that 20 km is 90% of 100 km?

Maintenance complete.

I also took this opportunity to disable DNS services on the server, which were no longer in use as of a few days ago. It's unlikely to break anything, but let me know if you notice anything odd.

The homepage, forum and wiki will be going offline for about five minutes on 2019-03-09, between 10:00 and 10:15 UTC.

In your local time (if you are logged in and have your time offset correctly configured), this is:
March 09, 2019, 10:00:00 AM

The intent is to install security updates on the server which hosts the homepage, forum and wiki. These will be non-disruptive to functionality, as the server is running a stable OS release that gets critical fixes only.

You can switch it off in your account settings. The default is already off, so you must have switched it on at some point.

Actually, all of humanity is descended from black people. It was an evolutionary adaptation to enable our furless bodies to survive in the harsh African sun. Without it, our ancestors would all have died of skin cancer millennia before we invented agriculture.

The S10 is objectively better than the Pixel 3. It doesn't matter how good your camera is, the phone will always be made by Google and you can never undo that.

I'd take a Google phone over a Samsung phone tbh. And you know what I think of Google.

We already have a [tex] BBcode tag that renders it properly. This thing you've found doesn't even seem to handle some basic commands like \frac, but with [tex]:

Can we start using discord instead so it’s easier to chat on mobile?

So I have a Pixel 3 now and don't have an iPhone XS anymore.

Too bad it's not 2018.

Maintenance complete. Please let me know if you notice any breakage that may be related.

The forum and homepage were offline from about 00:07 to 06:05 UTC on 2019-01-23. The cause was the database partition running out of disk space while the admin was asleep.

In the short term, I've just added more space. The long-term fix is to set up proper monitoring so we know well in advance when this sort of thing is going to happen.

The homepage, forum and wiki will be going offline for up to an hour on 2019-01-26, between 10:00 and 11:00 UTC.

In your local time (if you are logged in and have your time offset correctly configured), this is:
January 26, 2019, 10:00:00 AM

The intent is to migrate the server which hosts the homepage, forum and wiki to a different (but related) operating system, which should provide reliability, security and maintenance benefits going forward.
