Re: Site wide notices and game tabs

Thanks, Kestas! Unfortunately, the icon from the game tab shows a missing file icon (as ghug just pointed out) and there are also layout glitches in the "Board index"/"Site News"/"Announcements"/"Home" area. I see these issues on both Internet Explorer and Chrome. In the BlackBerry 10 browser, there...

Re: [RESOLVED]Incomplete feature on the new forum

ghug: I understand what a # anchor does. You say that in the old Forum the # anchor did something but in all practicality was useless since it merely reproduced the threadID. That's exactly what I'm saying. When I saw repetition here, I instinctively ignored it. I also understand, for the record, th...

Re: [RESOLVED]Incomplete feature on the new forum

jmo1121109: There is no need to be rude. I "explained how you can get the link that works" myself in my original post at the top of the thread. And frankly, if you're not following, I don't know why you bothered to post in the thread at all. I revived the thread because I was able to reproduce the p...

Re: [RESOLVED]Incomplete feature on the new forum

jmo1121109: Are you sure that you're following? That the "#" anchors in the old Forum do absolutely nothing is more of a useless quirk to my mind rather than a stylistic choice. ghug: How hard would it be to follow TheGoffy's implied advice and do away with the dialog box entirely, replacing it with...

Re: Incomplete feature on the new forum

A_Tin_Can was following the conversation. Maybe A_Tin_Can has something to say?

jmo1121109: Well it's particularly unclear given how the old webDip Forum worked. I hardly think that they'd care about that.

Re: Incomplete feature on the new forum

Now all these dialog boxes have even more elaborate URL's, with a giant "sid=" string in them. What is that about? I'm not sure if that makes the URL's more or less confusing. jmo1121109: If you select all, yes, but that wasn't obvious to me, to the extent that I didn't even notice where I had gone ...

You can turn off the active filter (on the far right) and then sort by max rating.
I had to make a copy in My Drive before I could do that.

Re: Monarchism is less dysfunctional than Democracy

Octavious: I'd argue that the backdrop isn't monarchy, but rather authoritarianism. Thanks for pointing out Wusti's post.

Wusti: Are you trying to say that separatist movements are inevitable because people are greedy, stupid and lazy (such that the monarchy is irrelevant)?

Octavious: Come on, this thread isn't really about monarchy. CroakandDagger was taking a snipe at democracy. Constitutional monarchies haven't even been mentioned yet.

Re: Real April GhostRatings Published

So my question was partly answered in the thread, but by combining the spreadsheets, players who haven't finished a game recently are excluded.

I don't really care. GR ratings can't reflect players like me who have joined games in progress anyway, but I am mildly curious.

Re: Retreat rules

Right, I didn't mean to be condescending. I had no idea that you had been playing since the 1970's. The meat of my contribution to this thread was that the scenario you described can be an effective defensive strategy. By the way, what did you mean by "good ol’ common sense prevailing again, too bad...

Re: Incomplete feature on the new forum

I reproduced the problem. Notice how these URL's end in "p=11309#p11309". When I was presented with the dialog box, I ignored the final part of the URL to copy and paste everything before "#p11309". In the old forum you are often presented with a similar pattern. For instance, the "Last person to po...
