[09:47:09] <Bytram> chromas: ping! I'm over here... and have a quick favor to ask of ya
[09:47:22] <Bytram> Could you please load up this page on dev: https://dev.soylentnews.org
[09:47:24] <upstart> ^ 03- Dev.SN User ( https://dev.soylentnews.org )
[09:47:37] * chromas clicks
[09:47:50] <Bytram> hi! Appreciate it very much!
[09:47:56] <Bytram> see the text: "SoylentNews' Issues Addressed in Release: 2017.12 ***"
[09:48:17] <Bytram> hover your mouse cursor over the "***"
[09:48:26] <Bytram> what do you see?
[09:48:28] <chromas> A giant tooltip appears
[09:48:52] <Bytram> what is the last text you see in the tool tip?
[09:48:55] <chromas> A paragraph "Dunno if we should convert" then a bunch of paragraphs with numbers (1234567890)
[09:49:00] <Bytram> nod nod
[09:49:09] <chromas> "If you can read this…--Bytram"
[09:49:14] <Bytram> kewel
[09:49:19] <chromas> (I put in the ellipsis, that wasn't in the tooltip)
[09:49:39] <Bytram> one of the bugs that was reported was that editor's notes were too small
[09:49:52] <Bytram> the fix was to remove the limit on the size of what could be put there.
[09:49:58] <Bytram> so, I made a big comment
[09:50:06] <Bytram> ~2500 chars
[09:50:14] <Bytram> and happened to hover over the ***
[09:50:18] <Bytram> Oooooops!
[09:50:32] <chromas> Ooh, I can click the note too. It's the same content but without paragraph breaks
[09:50:51] <Bytram> I could easily make the text in that twice as wide, and/or twice as tall, or instead of twice, make that thrice!
[09:50:56] <Bytram> nod nod
[09:51:03] <Bytram> welcome to the world of editor-dom
[09:51:39] <Bytram> it's modal.
[09:52:00] <Bytram> click the stars (***) again and the note collapses again
[09:52:03] <chromas> responsibility--
[09:52:03] <Bytram> =)
[09:52:03] <Bender> karma - responsibility: -1
[09:52:11] * Bytram chuckles
[09:52:35] <chromas> Looks like it's javascript. Time to swap in that css trick from the comment section
[09:53:00] * chromas cracks the The Mighty Whip
[09:53:11] <Bytram> ROFL!
[09:54:25] <Bytram> looks like the "tool tip" is implemented as a NOTE attribute on the ANCHOR element <a title="god-awful amount of text">
[10:00:31] <chromas> Is that comment at the bottom a filter test or did EF stop by?
[10:00:50] <Bytram> comment on that same story?
[10:00:52] <Bytram> clicky
[10:01:38] <Bytram> chromas: pm?
[10:01:49] <chromas> sure
