[02:35:17] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: Yays! Thanks a bunch! Did you hardcode either TOS or TNG, or just leave it blank and let it fall to the user's default/preference?
[02:35:26] * Bytram supposes he could just try it and find out, eh?
[02:36:43] <TheMightyBuzzard> hardcoded it tng
[02:36:53] * Bytram looks at: SECURITY / posting and sees, as an example: https://dev.soylentnews.org

[02:36:57] <Bytram> nod nod
[02:37:15] <TheMightyBuzzard> ain't a big issue so i didn't want a lot of testing being necessary.
[02:37:52] <Bytram> not a *big* issue, but was a constant "discomfort"
[02:38:39] * Bytram looks at: SECURITY / Spam and sees, as an example: https://dev.soylentnews.org
[02:38:41] <TheMightyBuzzard> yup

[02:39:29] <Bytram> what I would do in the past is click a link, get the error message, trim off the "&mode=whateverwasthere" and hit refresh.
[02:39:30] <TheMightyBuzzard> just needs to be consistent really cause we're following it for adminy reasons not general site usage reasons.
[02:39:39] <TheMightyBuzzard> same
[02:40:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> i should prolly add a &noupdate=1 too
[02:40:29] <Bytram> so... does *everyone* now get threadtng? or do you populate it based on *my* preferences, and other might see "threadtos" based on their pref?
[02:40:44] <Bytram> hmmm, gotta think about *that*
[02:42:20] <Bytram> Are those the only two places you changed? SECURITY: (1) "Posting" and (2) "Spam"
[02:43:00] <TheMightyBuzzard> everyone gets it
[02:43:39] <TheMightyBuzzard> dunno, i changed it in everything that used mode=thread
[02:50:36] <Bytram> would it work okay if we just stripped the &mode= parameter?
[02:50:55] * Bytram doesn't even know what his pref is on dev... brb
[02:52:36] <TheMightyBuzzard> #smake Bytram
[02:52:36] * MrPlow smakes Bytram upside the head with bellybutton lint
[02:52:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> <Bytram> what I would do in the past is click a link, get the error message, trim off the "&mode=whateverwasthere" and hit refresh.
[02:53:59] <Bytram> that was to get rid of the old "&mode=threaded" link which no longer worked as that was no longer a valid mode
[02:54:39] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, if it works without it with one mode hardcoded into the links it'll work without it with another hardcoded into the links =P
[02:55:24] <Bytram> I *know* that! I was wondering why even hardcode "&mode=threadtng" at all?
[02:55:39] * TheMightyBuzzard shurgs
[02:56:04] <TheMightyBuzzard> seemed more consistent than giving the admin whatever their preference is currently set to
[02:57:22] <TheMightyBuzzard> i mean for all i know you could be set to flat, newest first
[02:57:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> would mean you gotta debug every mode combination there is instead of one.
[02:58:13] <Bytram> hmmm, good point!
[02:58:59] <Bytram> do be aware that I'm running on 5 hours sleep last night and worked n 11 hour day and am only now havin dinner
[02:59:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> sides, it's just for us staff. significant effort should be saved for world+dog visible stuff.
[02:59:19] * TheMightyBuzzard chuckles
[02:59:23] * Bytram rummages around for a large bunch of salt
[02:59:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> i was wondering why you were such an easy target tonight
[03:00:30] <TheMightyBuzzard> man, i like lookin at the stripe page and seeing a buttload of money ready to get pulled into the bank account.
[03:02:47] <TheMightyBuzzard> aight, i'm out for bed. see ya tomorrow.
[03:07:45] <Bytram> obliged for the update, clarification, and here's wishing you a good night's resdt!
