Flash embed is probably fine. TV thread is broken because HTML is no longer allowed. We're going to have to write a script or something to convert youtube tags.

The only thing I've noticed that's a pain, is that images that are wider than the thread window are cut off with no indication or scroll bars or anything. It's good on the one hand, in that we no longer have to scroll 40 feet sideways to read threads when someone posts a freakin' billboard size pic, but annoying since nothing indicates the image has been cut off by the edge of the message board.

But I don't just use Youtube and some of those other sites use completely different embed code structures. Some mention the player and put the FLV as an option, others... Youtube mentions neither specifically. :?

Any chance the colors will be nice-ified next week?
I wanted to post some art, but this Ecru/latte scheme :joe: seems ... well, unflattering. But you know that.

I do like that I can actually read what I'm typing now. No more tiny black on grey crime.

The emPHAsisis are weird too, with the mods and the Subject: Re: Watch this space! AKA What's going on with the site??!?! every post, and tiny page numbers, but whateva. my 2c.

Yeah, I hate that too.

I've also noticed it's a pain to read threads with multiple pages. I can never see the numbers of the pages before I click, cause they're all the way over to the right and practically invisible.

Also, the "new posts" icons are very annoying. Make them stop animating. Do it now. :zombie:

The red mod names are kind of weird -- jump out at ya a bit too much. Plus, Reber and I aren't red...is there something you're not telling us? :)

Updated again, to the latest and greatest.

Red=Admin (scott kept bugging me to delete spammers so I made him admin so he could do it himself.) not sure why moderators aren't colorized. but then I'm not sure how a lot of the new stuff works yet.

The reason mods aren't in green is because you only set them as mods in a particular forum's settings, so they're not "global." That requires a setting in the user's account, like admins. But maybe it's possible to colour non-globals, too. I don't know this particular system.

One thing that kind of grates on my nerves is seeing the crawlers. Okay, it's a good thing for GZ to get crawled, but must we see it happening? It's a bit distracting. But that's purely emotional.

The non-global admin thing makes sense.

..."crawlers"? What's that?

is there anywhere to turn off the lit up old threads? they seem to stay on until I read them and I don't always read all the threads...and all the lit up threads makes it hard to follow the threads I wanna follow.

did that make sense?
