Probably necessary because I speak German. German has the strange trait that double-digit numbers from 21 onwards are basically read backwards.

42
forty-two
zweiundvierzig

Nobody says vierzigzwei. It's two and forty.

I haven't come across any other major languages that do it like German.

 

English can do it like that actually. Specifically old people and the number 25. They might say it as 5 and 20 instead. It's weird.

Exactly, languages with Germanic roots or even most Indo-Aryan have this too.
Dutch and Danish do it also, then there is Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi (maybe from the Brits?).

It's still unnatural because when you are writing a number you go from hundredth, tenth and unit values in order.
Germans just like to jump around at the end, keep you at your toes.

Ok. When a thread a member has posted in receives a new post or posts, from somebody else, the thread icon is colored orange, and has a white ! within it. This is accompanied by an indication of how many new posts have been made. So, right now, in the mod thread of all places, I cannot get rid of the orange icon, and it says there are 2 new posts, no matter how many times I've tried to go to those new posts. ALSO, if those post do indeed exist, I can't seem to see them, with the most recent one visible to me being Permalite's response to Rol, where he says to "smash the report button".

The Hot Topics page shows who last posted in a thread, so the error here is that a spambot posted twice in the Moderator Thread and the anti-spam measures make the posts of a spambot invisible when the bot gets permabanned. Since the posts can't be viewed, the orange icon for unseen posts remains.

A simple circumvention to this problem should be to post in the thread yourself to make the most recent post in the thread one that isn't invisible, so the orange icon should go away.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Dutch is almost a semi-major language.

Hey talondood. The thread bet feature is great, but is it just a one time per thread kind of deal? I've been trying to make a new bet in one of my threads that's already had one and it doesn't seem to be working.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I think the process is that there is a manual review by admins and/or mods to verify that the bet was legit and not a setup that allowed people to earn a quick buck. So you can't make a new bet while the previous one still sits in the queue.

I assume it already went through the manual review when it was paid out? I dunno, I guess I'll see what happens.

Yup, I saw later that this was about the football thread. The payout was handled by TalonMan, so the cause is something else if you still can't create a new bet now.

Got a suggestion for games, now we've changed how Sales work perhaps we could have an All formats for combined sales, as very often when a multiplatform games sales are revealed it'll be all platforms combined, rather than getting figures for each individual platform. So unusable without an "All" section on the games page.

Also the Weekly hardware charts aren't viewable since software stopped being updated.
