Have anything to suggest? A crazy video idea? New merchandise in mind? Write it down here - I'm not saying I'm going to listen, but I promise to pretend very hard.

I looked at my CPU usage and apparently having this site open (or at least some of its pages) uses 6% of my CPU whereas most sites use 1% or less.

Just something of note that you can decide whether it's a reasonable ask to fix.
such as? there are no persistent ones for me - just as the page changes (e.g. videos, mouseover styles)

I find the topics constantly render.

As well as a disproportionately large area when people have animated avatars.

I'm not sure if you want to bother fixing it. I was looking at the SMBX forum (the only other website I can find that's using animations) and it seems that chrome does some weird thing where re-renders much larger sections of the screen than it needs to in some cases. I'm actually kind of confused why. I mean I get grouping things together, but this is just re-rendering irrelevant stuff.
The first thing I would do with infinite power would be to make myself a cave where I could look at my shadow forever.

I made a game called Utter Confusion! Play it! :D
It's a lot of fun and has been incredibly popular at every indie game dev party I've brought it to.

yeah it has no choice but to redraw animations every frame

don't worry about the overdraw - it's probably more efficient

I've pressed it twice times out of habit to go to the home page, and several other times accidentally when trying to switch tabs.

Which would be very easy too.

Code: Select all

#code { display:none; }
appears to get rid of it including the link.

For some reason, I can remember seeing RSS feed tags hanging around a couple of the pages on this forum. Now that I have an RSS reader, I'm a bit disappointed in the fact that I can't find any for whatever reason. I can't remember all the functions of phpbb since I was last admin, but is there a way to create RSS feeds (if they aren't already a feature) for topics and such? That'd be very useful for me personally, so I could explore things a bit faster than before.

I know that forum based topic subscriptions and bookmarking already exists, but that's not exactly the same thing as an RSS feed.

Thanks for telling me about that! I couldn't find it, for whatever reason. Anyways, I guess that it'll just be a while before we have smartfeed's abilities again.

i dont even know if it's being developed, but hopefully something replaces it eventually, since i used it myself quite a lot

while still on the subject of feeds, I actually found a really easy way to get feeds I didn't think about before: http://prntscr.com/65a440

When you click the "subscribe to this page" button, it automatically pulls up all the feeds that the page is tied to, even down to the specific topic. While I'm currently using just firefox, the same feature is likely on other browsers as well. Internet explorer doesn't seem to have that button after I looked around a bit, however.

I was having some password problems earlier, and while I was working on solving them I noticed that while several places tell you to contact an administrator if you have trouble, there doesn't seem to actually be a way to find Rena's contact information (or even the fact that she is the admin) unless you are already logged in. Unless there was an obvious page somewhere that I was missing?

There are a couple of weird things about these notification banners
1. The fact the x doesn't appear until you mouse over it might make you think you can't close it at all
2. Trying to close the banner on the board index page gives you an error, but anywhere else is fine
