Hmm... didn't seem to work in the shoutbox. Does it work on the forum as it should?
avatar
@Darth-Apple try that with you :-)
avatar
You can now tag users with @ before the username. It will link to their profile and send them an alert notifying them that they've been tagged.
avatar
Hey guys! New secret feature: You can now upload profile pictures. These are additional images that are avatar-like, but only show on your profile. Add yours in your user control panel!
avatar
Thank's
avatar
That's great news! Hope that everyone else tests negative as well!
avatar
News, the Coronavirus-test result from Ben came today, NEGATIVE, great, now I have to wait for the result, my wife and my two big children (12 and 14)
avatar
We should put a "who's online" in this shoutbox and turn it into a mini chat room. Tongue
avatar
Good night all.
avatar
@SpookyZalost: Whoops... Finna The quick edit one is my fault.
avatar
Sweet! @Darvince: It's great!
avatar
such accelerating activity lately, definitely well beyond how much i visit the site as of late Tongue
avatar
Lol, though the shoutbox doesn't let me post in Mobile, and the quick edit options load off screen to the left... Otherwise it works though
avatar
Google finally classifies us as a mobile-friendly website. We aren't getting downranked anymore... Finna
avatar
Realistically that's gonna be even easier to profile if anyone even knows how to use it LMAO, but yeah I've used both w3m and linx. Pretty cool for minimalist software.
avatar
oof true... honestly at that point you might as well be using W3 browser, it's text only and can be run on a remote device via SSH.
avatar
Depends on what you're up to, keep in mind that if you do anything shady online, your browser can be fingerprinted with canvas and webGL, which is also very dependent on your resolution Wink
avatar
honestly these days screen resolution doesn't mean much beyond 1280x720 imho. just be glad you don't have to chose between 40 columns of text and responsiveness or 80 columns of text and slower speed.
avatar
1600x900 Master Race. The only thing I'm afraid of when buying a refurb thinkpad is that they give me the 1366x768 models instead of 1600x900 :/ But no refurb lists resolution on their site so it turns into a crazy email chain xd
avatar
I don't like the screen resolution of these things. That's the only real downside to them. 1280x800 is pretty restrictive.
avatar
it just feels nice to type on too, between the keyboard and the responsiveness, I could see myself coding on it lol.
avatar
Love those macs. I have a similar one and wouldn't trade it for the world!
avatar
Brought my 08 macbook into work, had to use my phone as a tether because it's too old to get the request to login lol. but it works!
avatar
It's the weekend. +1 to that @TC4 Smile
avatar
hy it's 8pm in Austria, time to relax :-)
avatar
It's in the ship, it's in the frakking ship!!!
avatar
you were very strong i see with posting !
avatar
We will probably reach it by the end of April at the very latest. Activity has been strong. Smile
avatar
20 K post is right around the corner now Smile
avatar
We are only 68 posts (~2 days) from reaching 19,000!
avatar
Made a few things fresh 'round here. Smile
avatar
It's only a year off. Finna
avatar
That's actually a much more accurate approximation than I was expecting. Like the first five decimals are all above 5 for rounding (when dividing by the non-rational number and not approximation). .
avatar
We are in the year 643 * 3.14 Tongue
avatar
Happy Pi day, nerds
avatar
<3
avatar
I'm quite content with the dark theme, great job lain.
avatar
They're both top notch. The main one is probably the best its ever been IMO.
avatar
I've been working on the main one a bit too. Every year or so, we refresh things a bit. It's getting to that time of the year now. Tongue
avatar
Love the new theme
avatar
Let's do it!
avatar
Goal for 2020: 22,020 posts. I think we can do it. Finna Tongue
avatar
How do the new colors look?
avatar
Oh we've got some interesting ones in there... I look back and I'm not even entirely sure where some of them came from. There are quite a few that only last for a couple of posts, and switch to something different. IIRC, Acko did quite a few of the earlier ones... Finna
avatar
Love it! I'm terrible with unique suggestions like these though. Tongue If anything comes to me I'll post it.
avatar
We should use a rank like that for people who post a lot of content in a specific section that is +repped. Maybe who has the most +repped threads. I like it.
avatar
how about dataphage for people who post tons of stuff?
avatar
Registered Alien will be added as an easter egg for certain post counts by the way. I like your idea.
avatar
These are based on posts. They show up under the avatar. I'm "Myth Star," for example. You can also make your own in your user control panel if you wish. Smile
avatar
I'd like to be the site's registered alien. Wait no, I already am. Nevermind, I'm not sure what would make a good user rank. Are these based on posts or given for other achievements?
avatar
Thank you for running these @Guardian. Congratulations to Lain and Brian, well deserved!
avatar
Awards posted. Congratulations Lain and brian!
avatar
Awesome! Looking forward to the announcement
avatar
Going to try and post the awards results tonight.
avatar
Murphy's law... Finna
avatar
There's always something...
avatar
BAM is going to be delayed. Found an odd bug in MyBB that is somewhat of a show-stopper. Edit: Think it's a legit MyBB bug from all the way back in 1.8.0... I swear Finna Huh
avatar
Testing. Smile
avatar
It looks simple and clean compared to one I'm using.
avatar
Sweet. Do you get alerts for it?
avatar
Enabled an old status feed (profile comments-esque) plugin that I never quite finished on profiles here. Never going to release it on the mod site. It's a crappy plugin compared to what else is out there, but hey, I forgot I had it on the server. I'm surprised it works on MyBB 1.8 after all these years. Finna
avatar
The bigger problem I'm having is getting the announcments NOT to briefly flash before disappearing if they have previously been dismissed. The only way to do this is to set them not to display by defualt, and to use javascript to display them if needed. Trying to work that in next.
avatar
Hmm, that's a a good idea. I'll give it a shot.
avatar
I'd use a flex box for that, put all the actual text and all in its own box, use flex-flow: row, then have the button at the very end in its own container again and center using either another flexbox or position:absolute from inside the whole announcement
avatar
Probably releasing this sometime later this weekend. Big Grin
avatar
Edit: Whatever I did might have fixed it... Still displays at the bottom though... Finna
avatar
I need a little bit of help with BAM. Take a look a the banner on this page. http://makestation.net/showthread.php?ti...hlight=bam The close button overlaps the text.
avatar
LMK what the issue is and maybe I can come up with something
avatar
I mean I know my way around, mostly using SASS for projects though
avatar
And awesome @Guardian!
avatar
I think I need some styling help guys. Anyone good at CSS?
avatar
Get your voting in people! Award polls posted.
avatar
Welcome back!
avatar
Welcome back lain of the wired,.
avatar
I'm back boys
avatar
Added a chatbot onto the forum and it's... gone a little rogue. Figures, what a surprise. Finna
avatar
Awesome @Thomas Smile
avatar
I submitted mine!
avatar
Submitted my nominations Tongue
avatar
Alright, nomination thread is up. Thanks for reminding me Thomas!
avatar
That's on me. I guess I need to do them. Maybe this weekend.
avatar
When do we have the 2019 Member of the Year awards?
avatar
Thank you! We're modernizing the site a bit. Long overdue. Finna
avatar
Updates to the Makestation development version theme look good
avatar
It's my grandfather's 75th birthday, nobody in my house looks over 55... d*** immortals.
avatar
Sad news indeed.
avatar
rip kobe bryant
avatar
Is there a snowman?
avatar
ok... that does it, I'm calling you "frosty" as a nickname now darth
avatar
Happy birthday! Tongue
avatar
Tongue
avatar
Did Darth turn into a snowman?
avatar
Happy birthday!
avatar
"FIRE THE PHOTONIC CANNON!" *proceeds to annhilate several borg cubes via chain reaction.*
avatar
oh I was quoting Ace Combat 4
avatar
Happy birthday @Thomas!
avatar
<<Today's my birthday! A victory sure would be nice...>>
avatar
a simcity 4 picture wouldn't have the same impact for 4K posts lol, maybe 4K LY out and list what stars are at that distance? rofl. I'm kidding of course, it'll come down to who can grab it first... in 6 months or so.
avatar
Ah. Get 4k now. :Tongue
avatar
There's always 4K... after all it wasn't that long ago we had reached 2K
avatar
I didn't get 3000 on the longest thread
avatar
What's wrong Thomas?
avatar
I'm very upset >: (
avatar
Yeah if only they used Recaptcha on the registration page.
avatar
lots of spam attacks today
avatar
spam alert
avatar
i'll give you my sword uwu Wink

Excellent... *steeples fingers together*
avatar
NO!!!!!
avatar
bye again
avatar
yo!
avatar
Hello hello
avatar
i'm back
avatar
@Lain, that sucks, sorry to hear about that, but your guide is really epic! well done man.
avatar
Instructables F**KED me, so here you go.
avatar
I did cheat a little bit with the code though ;P
avatar
Will upload the entire guide here at a later date (and once Instructables finally lists my entry on the contest page.)
avatar
Arduino Hash Cracker finally done. Very barebones, just needs the development board to use it, no wires, no bullshit.
avatar
two more spambots... terminated
avatar
https://i.imgur.com/wdmxwPt.png that's certainly not recaptcha
avatar
Where? It's not on the registration page
avatar
rofl
avatar
We've already got recaptcha. Isn't helping much. Finna
avatar
but only darth can impliment that.
avatar
it's not one you've tried though, and it's worked well enough for plenty of other sites
avatar
yeah but bots are getting smarter, it's not a solution, just a temporary fix.
avatar
it's called recaptcha
avatar
hey google already made a way
avatar
ugh, some day I will find a way to permanently remove them...
avatar
zap, spambot down.
avatar
d***, missed that one, thanks guardian.
avatar
hate them.
avatar
spam alert
avatar
thanks

WB
avatar
Welcome back!
avatar
I am also alive despite being away for a while.
avatar
lol, I'm active too, just been busy a lot lately.
avatar
Tongue Just means you got to work to get it back.
avatar
my hard work of being at the top of all the latest threads Sad
avatar
all my hard work was invalidated just like that
avatar
Lol
avatar
The posting spree? Tongue
avatar
of?
avatar
not a fan
avatar
Indeed Big Grin
avatar
Nice posting spree tonight!
avatar
All detected spambots will be terminated per section 12 subsection 39 on the removal of software with malicious intent, specifically that on Unwanted Advertising Machines or UAM's.
avatar
@Thomas No Tongue
avatar
Thank you for the warm welcome Finna
avatar
spambot terminated.
avatar
if you're truly appreciative
avatar
or admin
avatar
give me super mod
avatar
Darth! Big Grin hey man!, long time no see!
avatar
I'll second Zalost's words. And good idea @Guardian Big Grin
avatar
Yeah... I hate fake member numbers. On my old forums I used to delete all accounts with 0 posts, older than 365 days old to keep the number more accurate.
avatar
I'm genuinely appreciative of everything that everyone has done for the site though. it's amazing how well the site is doing.
avatar
Throwing shade To diss someone without actually saying their name but making it obvious that that's who u are talking about
avatar
Shade acting in a casual or disrespectful manner towards someone/dissing a friend
avatar
Shade?
avatar
shade never made anybody less gay
avatar
also, I think we should keep the IP blocking but purge the spammer accounts to more accurately reflect the actual number of real users.
avatar
yeah, how did blake do that anyway?
avatar
Agreed
avatar
you guys oughta send out another mass email
avatar
About:Humans
avatar
about:robots
avatar
rofl, that's actually quite humerous!
avatar
Welcome Humans! We have come to visit you in peace and with goodwill! Robots may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. Robots have seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Robots are Your Plastic Pal Who’s Fun To Be With. Robots have shiny metal posteriors which should not be bitten. And they have a plan.
avatar
unless you are a bot thomas?
avatar
I doubt that lol. probably closer to 450 or so.
avatar
499
avatar
ya, but how many of those were bots lol
avatar
hey we hit 500 members
avatar
Spambot detected and locked down, no further posting from that username is allowed while investigation is underway.
avatar
indeed, though we still need to find a way to draw in new people it's always nice to see new posts on makestation.
avatar
i'm always on it Wink
avatar
Went on a posting spree. Always love seeing someone else get on it. Cool
avatar
oh
avatar
Spambot Terminated, IP logged, Spammer warned via email.
avatar
spam alert
avatar
What did I do?
avatar
Nice work Thomas!
avatar
yeah, a way of filtering the bots and preventing them from posting until they can be vetted, it should help a bunch
avatar
oh
avatar
@ thomas, a solution is being researched, and a specemin has been processed, they must proceed to the test proper.
avatar
spam alert
avatar
for every one that get's through a hundred more are turned away, but they only really attack during certain times of the month
avatar
Anyone else notice the spambots swarm in cycles?
avatar
It Never ends.
avatar
Eh, more of 'em.
