[02:07:48] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: so sorry, these lines were supposed to be in #qa ... But, on the users.pl page, is there any good reason why "Reason Modified", "Anonymous Modifier", "Karma Bonus", and "New User Modifier" are defined with an Anchor element with a name field? Hmmm, maybe to support old browsers? I was thinking that an id= attribute should suffice and would remove the underlining that I see on each of those elements.
[02:15:59] <Bytram> afk -- time to makes some food
[02:45:55] <Bytram> back
[03:40:17] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: think I found a bug for ya: Loaded: https://dev.soylentnews.org and it brought up comment #30910, instead... discovered when I clicked on the "Parent" button for comment #30910
[03:40:18] <aqu4>  ^ "3Dev.SN Comments | 20170202a - test story for submtting indented comments"
[03:50:18] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, that's not a bug, that's a malformed link. where'd you find it?
[03:51:24] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh, wait, that is a bug in parent links
[03:51:35] <TheMightyBuzzard> i'll fix it in the morning. off to bed now.
[11:22:58] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, that must have been an old link. you shouldn't be getting &pic=N#N links you should be getting &cid=N#N links.
[11:24:24] <TheMightyBuzzard> always refresh your pages before you go testing when i'm making this many changes this fast.

[13:57:46] <aqu4>  ^ "320170202a - test story for submtting indented comments - Dev.SN"
[13:58:05] <Bytram> cllicked on [parent] button on comment #30910 to open in new tab
[13:58:16] <Bytram> saw this page displayed: https://dev.soylentnews.org
[13:58:18] <aqu4>  ^ "3Dev.SN Comments | 20170202a - test story for submtting indented comments"
[13:58:37] <Bytram> noticed there was a bullet from the <LI> displayed to the left of the title bar
[13:59:44] <Bytram> tried with another link; clicked on the link for comment #30911 -- open in new tab: https://dev.soylentnews.org
[13:59:45] <aqu4>  ^ "3Dev.SN Comments | 20170202a - test story for submtting indented comments"
[14:00:18] <Bytram> saw all comment title bars preceded with a bullet from the <LI> element
[14:00:32] <Bytram> had seen it before but only now figured out what I was seeing
[14:01:14] <Bytram> FWIW I was logged onto dev as user martyb (76)
[14:02:20] <TheMightyBuzzard> ya, the bullet is annoying. i think someone monkeyed with the css somewhere along the line.
[14:02:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> weren't me though
[14:02:44] <Bytram> weren't me, either! ;)
[14:06:11] <Bytram> wish I could hang around but I need to be AT work in 40 minutes
[14:06:13] <Bytram> back later
[14:08:48] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: darn! almost forgot... on the user preferences page where one sets values for boosting/lowering different moderations, "Touche" is misspelled (no accent) and lacks a drop down to select a modifier amount
[14:08:50] <Bytram> afk
