Unacceptable violation of our SLA.
85 General Talk
This was the last of the 4 episodes leaked before the season began. We were watching them once a week every Sunday to sync with the rest of the world. Now I'll be back waiting with the plebes until Monday evening to get caught up from Sunday's airing.
That Petyr Baelish is a sneaky fucker. I wonder how him vs. The Queen will turn out. Cersei Lannister is brutal and powerful, but I feel like Baelish benefits from keeping his emotions checked, ridiculous amounts of patience, and working from the shadows. I think he'll make it out of King's Landing alive, somehow, but I hope he diversified his portfolio because his brothels won't be reliable income anymore.
I don't believe Roose Bolton's hold on Winterfell will last given Stannis Baratheon's imminent march (still hate the Red Woman, despite boobs).
The Jamie and Bronn Show is working for me, so far. Bronn is fucking smart and Jamie seems to be perpetually disarmed (see what I did there?) by this fact. Also, duh... you basically have a shield for a hand. You can catch blades.
The only thing exciting about the Khaleesi storyline right now is that Tyrion is on his way and that she has dragons that we never get to see.
@Cro-Bot I wish I could sell old Warhammer figures in a style similar to how that one poster used to sell old cars on Redphir.
i've been trying for 45 minutes to quote a post but the submit button stopped working("greyed out") after i tried quoting a reply. then i went back to try again and the quote button stopped loading the reply page, so then i tried to make a new reply and it's not logging the text, and the submit button isnt/wasnt working.
I tried but couldn't recreate your problem.
When all else fails, put a ">" sign at the beginning of an empty line and copy/paste the text you want to quote. Hit ENTER twice after the last quoted line to stop quoting.
Hi. I'm a quote. <ENTER>
Still a quote.<ENTER><ENTER>
Not a quote.
yesterday it took me an hour to figure out how to do that idiotic html img post [...]
Other Board How-Tos I wrote. I take requests.
@D-rock I'm sorry you're dissatisfied with the board software. You are experiencing a fundamental problem with message boards across the Internet... if you don't have the resources to spend countless hours writing your own software, you have to use a package that already exists. Most board software out there is based on 1990s technology, which is fine. BBCode is still around because it worked.
I don't think anyone would argue that "redphir" wasn't a particularly fantastic experience. I played it safe in one aspect (using the identical board software the pheerboard used [invented 1998], to give everyone a familiar feeling), and did something completely different to set it apart (RED). It worked for a while but, for various reasons, good posters were driven away while social networks (Facebook) collected them as they dropped off.
This time around, I took the opportunity to do something completely different. I went looking for "new" board software and landed on a very young but very actively developed package: NodeBB. It's so young it's not even at the 1.0 release (0.6 right now). I didn't find anything else out there that was using modern web technologies and I didn't want to take any half-measures with the board software this time. The old board was a ghost town and the risk of losing posters was very low because they were mostly gone anyway (welcome back).
The software is faaar from perfect. If you're a web developer and have the Firebug plug-in, I don't recommend leaving it on while you use this board, lest you see all the ugly imperfections.
Again, welcome back. It's been nice so far seeing old posters trickling in, but if you're out because of your previously stated reasons, I'll be sorry to see you go.
