[11:27:03] <chromas> "In as much" can be one word. That's the only thing I noticed
[11:28:04] <Bytram> good one
[11:28:22] <Bytram> how about overall 'pacing', 'tone', 'exposition' ??
[11:28:38] <Bytram> do you see that there is a problem?
[11:30:18] <chromas> Yes. The Extended Copy is a blokquote
[11:30:43] <Bytram> btw, Thought you'd like to know that upstart has moved up to being tied in 8th place for being the most active story submitter in the HoF: https://soylentnews.org

[11:30:47] <Bytram> buggers!
[11:30:50] <Bytram> and I just added that.
[11:30:53] <chromas> Looks okay so far, other than the 1-indexed users :) I'm not really an expert on writing tho
[11:30:54] <Bytram> coffee++

[11:31:02] <Bytram> lol
[11:31:29] <Bytram> is geared to humans and natural numbers, not expected to be read by many bots.
[11:31:31] <Bytram> =)
[11:31:34] <chromas> Reeding, riting and arthritis
[11:32:01] <Bytram> *chuckles*
[11:32:21] <chromas> What if a certain sockpuppet is really a bot though? Being non-bot-friendly could make it butthurt
[11:32:39] * chromas steps onto thin ice
[11:32:58] * Bytram activates the super freeze ray
[11:33:14] * Bytram watches chromas turn into a corpsicle
[11:33:29] * Bytram enters school for remedial aiming
[11:35:23] <chromas> Okay, I read it. Looks fine to me.
[11:35:45] <chromas> Maybe an upwards modbomb could be a mod missile (not to e confused with a King Missile)
[11:35:50] <Bytram> did you cleanup by blockquote foe paw?
[11:36:02] <chromas> no
[11:36:14] <chromas> Wasn't sure if you were gonna do more so I haven't changed anything
[11:36:58] <chromas> You could throw a poll on there too
[11:37:29] <chromas> "Best SN troll" and then make each option one of the sockpuppet accounts
[11:37:47] <Bytram> I should make explicit that I am intentionally not naming nams.
[11:37:49] <Bytram> *names
[11:37:53] <Bytram> brb
[11:41:19] <chromas> Aside from hits, it'd be neat if stories could show unique visitors
[11:41:33] <chromas> at least, unique by ipid or something
[11:41:49] * Bytram adds spoiler tags around the wikipedia quote
[11:41:51] <chromas> I guess you'd need a log though
[11:42:13] <chromas> Does rehash allow the details tag?
[11:42:50] <chromas> I think Edge is the only browser that doesn't support it. Maybe IE
[11:46:41] <Bytram> details tag?
[11:46:51] <Bytram> don't think I've ever seen one?
[11:46:58] <Bytram> #g html details element
[11:46:58] <MrPlow> https://developer.mozilla.org - "Jan 5, 2019 ... The HTML Details Element (details) creates a disclosure widget in which information is visible only when the widget is toggled into an \"open\" ..."
[11:47:11] <Bytram> kewel!
[11:47:13] <chromas> it's basically what the spoiler tag does but more betterer
[11:47:16] <Bytram> TIL
[11:48:20] <chromas> But it may not work on older browsers (for example, Pale Moon didn't support it when you guys added Spoiler [but it does now])
[11:48:54] <Bytram> yep. IIRC, that was a short term thing, too. (/me uses Pale Moon)
[11:50:06] <Bytram> #g m-w aside
[11:50:06] <MrPlow> https://www.merriam-webster.com - "Aside definition is - to or toward the side. How to use aside in a sentence."
[11:50:12] * chromas put it all over his feed page
[11:50:40] <Bytram> I didn't know that pages could get hungry! What do you feed your page?
[11:51:22] <chromas> a buttload of rss
[11:51:38] <Bytram> that sounds... uncomfortable
[11:52:13] <chromas> There's so many feeds I don't even feel--I mean see most of them anymore
[12:06:31] <Bytram> I generally just follow #rss-bot here on IRC and https://wiki.soylentnews.org on the Wiki.
