PHPBB Upgraded

Post by FishPants »

Well since I broke other stuff I thought I should do a PHPBB upgrade. For whatever reason it reset my board preference to prosilver, hopefully it didn't do it to everyone otherwise the pitchforks will come out!

I'm going to start looking at this Cleantalk plugin to see why it caused the issues earlier.

It reset mine too. Back to Black now...

Mine reset also.

I also couldn't access the forum for about 10 minutes. Some upgrade!

It did mine as well.

That said first impression of the black theme is a noticeable improvement.

Could be worth the headache of having to reset my preference.

I was unable to post a scathing yet urbane and witty response to a member's criticism of season 3 of Misfits of Science. I would like the name of your complaints department so that I might stress how upset I am at this development.

There are some terrible formatting issues when viewing the site on a mobile browser (specifically on my phone).

I'm particular, last post date/times overlap with thread page numbers on each subforum page.

Clearly not. He obviously wants to be part of the "storming" party, not the "digging" party.

Edit: Though can you put me down as a "maybe" for sapping?

I will continue my role as middle management for the storming. I'll set up a lawn chair near the moat and will direct the 2nd wave via bullhorn as Fishpants tries to stop their advance with boiling oil and incredibly biting insults that question everyone's sexual prowess.

I was figuring that I would be chief logistics officer. You know, coordinating acquiring all of the pitchforks and torches (WAY cheaper in bulk), setting a time for the storming, making sure that everyone gets there on time, etc.

You wanna see if Uber or Lyft will give us a discount based on our numbers? Also, see if they will allow lit torches in their cars. Otherwise we'll need to set up a lighting station at the storming site, which means we're going to have to deal with OSHA.

If we aren't using ride sharing, we'll need to figure out a mileage rate.

Is there some type of insurance in case the Uber driver robs or assaults us? Also for sexual assault by Uber drivers I dont think they cover counseling now.

I think we should just light torches there. And one of the perks of being an angry mob is that you don't need to comply with safety regulations, as you can just storm any safety regulators who try to stop you en route to your final storming destination.

The myth of the spontaneous angry mob is just that, a myth. I mean, between calling around for a decent pitchfork and torch rental agency, and the liability issues should someone screw up and storm a nearby Jimmy Johns by accident, it's just a headache of lengthy prep.

Honestly, I feel we're better off just expressing our outrage through an interpretive dance piece.

Dammit hepcat, stop trying to turn every OO event into an opportunity to showcase your one man dance show. It's unprofessional.

I would express all of our angst over the board through a pelvic thrust followed by a pirouette, and ending with a belly flop into the first row of the audience, where Issie would catch me and then gently lower me to ground while screaming in rage. Of course I would employ pastries as part of the narrative.

I quote hepcat not to praise him, but to ask if that little blue arrow (in the Black style) next to the "Hepcat wrote:" line has always been there. I just noticed it for the first time yesterday. I'm kind of slow on the uptake sometimes.
