I'm happy Truck was willing to do it and he got it done pretty quickly. Other ideas we have will take a lot longer to get done. 

On our end as well. I have a few Mod tools I'm trying to add (though it won't take any serious code to do), and further refinement of the Forum Rules (less bloat).

I was thinking more of modernizing the website and SEO work. And fixing issues that have cropped up over the years. But mod tools to help you all out is definitely welcome to do. 

It's just a long to do list.

Finally, opting for the golden rule?

Signature goes here!

Such a subtle change on the front page that makes it so much better. I just caught an article that I would have missed on the old layout.

Nice to see everyone is liking the change. The featured articles take longer to do, so it makes sense to have them front and center longer.

OOTL, what happened to the Global Weekly Charts for software? it's no longer up-to-date.

anyone know how where I can get 2019 data > . >



Let's get that Platinum/Diamond/Onyx supporter status going. All I want it for is more voting power for dupe comments. +8 for one, -8 for another. And such and such. I get my jollies and the staff gets new socks. Everybody wins.

I've never really noticed before, but avatars are vertically cropped on mobile, cutting out the bottom, even on one's profile page. Is there a reason for this?

I've noticed an issue on some threads but can't track down the common ground that applies to just those threads.

Sometimes when I click on a thread with a new post in my VGChartz Buddy it doesn't take me all the way to the new post.  It drops me off several posts early.  Sometimes even before my own last post.

For example.  This is Buddy link in a recent thread with new posts.  It should take me to the 12th post but I only get the 8th post and have to keep scrolling down for actual new posts.

Some similar behavior I've seen is a thread will take you to the most recent new post and then bounce you back up a second later.  Both issues tend to go away after a new page has started.  I've not tried to replicate the problem across multiple browser or OS's yet.

FireFox.

I'm constantly getting "The connection has timed out" and "problem loading page."

I'm checking my notifications, visiting a thread, leaving a thread, posting at a thread etc. Some times I just have to refresh/try again one. Some times it is two, three or even four times.

Feels like it happened when we switched to https.
