1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Am I the only one that attempts to flag something as spam and inadvertently likes it?

    Also, can anyone explain why some of my subscriptions are highlighted and others not? Is there some sort of setting I'm overlooking? It's not a huge deal, just curious.

    The highlighted ones should have unread posts, afaik.

    Wait -- maybe I mean bolded. If yours are yellow, I have no idea. :D

    They're bold when they have unread posts, but some are blue, but others are grey. All of them show up on my subscriptions list, so I have no idea?!

    I think they're in blue if you've commented in the thread.

    Powers that be, is there any chance of adding a thumbnail feature to polls?

    Ahh, that would really make sense. It was never really a problem, I would just occasionally think about it when I was on the front page and comparing the subbed threads.

    This is a really good idea.

    This can't be right. "Clang" is not pronounced "slang" although nary a cediha is to be found. Then again, you are a Rams fan, so expectations should be low. :)

    Oftentimes they just make the cedilha so small to where you can't see it without a microscope. But it is there (the cedilha).

    Can we get rid of Hirsch please? He/she may or may not be a possibly terminally ill person who constantly shits up threads and talks out of his/her ass. This poster still hasn't figured out how multi-quote works after much vigorous posting. Much like the entire Alden thread. It's pretty terrible to the point where I don't care if any of the illness stuff is true - doesn't give someone a free pass to be a moron. It's ruining the forum experience for a lot of people. Unlike most normal trolls, the posting has spread to almost every goddamn thread on the front page of SW&D.

    I called her (Hirsch) out on it maybe a week or so back, and explained that constantly bringing up her credit card problems was off-putting to a lot of people. The illness thing too, which would otherwise garner sympathy, was being brought up constantly in such a way that even the most consistently considerate of members were saying to take it down a notch, or just straight-up putting her on ignore.

    In response to me, she said she would focus on the clothes from then on, but today she was right back at it again complaining about how her ex-bf left her with a bunch of CC debt.

    It's also really annoying how she spouts off on tons of topics that she has no clue about (which certain other members that I also have blocked do as well). She finds a way to post in every single thread and necros seemingly unrelated threads.

    I think it's a Thomas Kuhn-type affair: eventually one group of posters dies out, then the group previously considered trolls gains seniority and takes over. It's the cycle of life. And there is no fighting it.

    Someone will take action once she spends more time in CM. Until then, our plight is ignored.

    She posts as much as Stitchy - even with her on ignore it sometimes takes up half of every screen.

    It's probably insensitive or whatever but her pictures are kind of disturbing too. I don't come to SF to see the same person complaining about her myriad health problems and making asinine comments on EVERYTHING.
