Interesting. How are you going to ensure that the results are random yet fixed? The most obvious way is to use the post ID/number/time as a seed but what do you show when the user previews the post? There's no problem if phpBB allows you to specify different behavior for preview and final post, of course.
(Being a geek is awesome. All knowledge is fun, whether it's NATO shorthand codes, medieval sociology or implementation details of phpBB hacks.)


Well, since you asked...

I'm planning on short-circuiting the preprocessor so that it fetches the specified roll's results and replaces the tag with the final data as the post body is being inserted into the database. That way, the outcome isn't decided until the user actually submits their post; preventing someone from 'rerolling' by repeatedly previewing their post until they get the outcome they like. I may also use their current session ID as a sanity check to also deter this behavior.

There are a couple of issues with the template (the font colour selector doesn't display properly, mostly) and I'm not satisfied with the positioning of the online user indicator image, but I don't see anything grossly broken due to my hack - so the rest can wait until tomorrow.

Kinda technical question: is the new site a little bigger than the old one, at least graphically? Because it seems to scroll a little choppier for me (admittedly, very old computer), like in chunks instead of just rolling down the page. I scroll down a bit and it stops, then loads all the new and jumps down. Or is this just a relic of the stuff that was making it overload the server or something?

I don't know for techncial stuff, so sorry for the vague descriptions.

The wrapper does add a little bit of additional overhead, but it shouldn't be that bad. In fact, I performance-tested the site on my smartphone (a Motorola Droid), and it didn't seem to be too bad.

Which browser are you using? And what are the basic specs on your PC?

And yeah, very very old computer: 1.4GHz Celeron, 384 megs of SDRam, and a 1 meg generic video card.

For what it's worth, this thread clocks in somewhere around 600k in total download size, with 120k or so of that coming from Mel's signature bar. I think it's more a rendering issue with your computer (especially that video card with 1 Mb of vRAM. Ouch.)

Tell you what: when I get everything sorted out, I'll write you a 'minimalist' alternate stylesheet that kills the background images and some of the more complex layout.

If you like, that would be nice. But I was just concerned that it was a technical thing that I was noticing. More than willing to believe it's just my 8-ish year old computer though.

This, combined with you being able to access the site on a Droid, makes me think of the future of TFS. Mobile TFS. View your smut ANYWHERE NOW! :buddy:

Don't know if someone mentioned this already (I may have missed it as I read through the thread) but checking the box that says "Log me in automatically" ... doesn't.

Yeah, it's an issue with the cookies. They're still expecting links to point to blackzeppelincorps.com, which is no longer the case.

What Kailan said. Let me know if there are any major issues, but I really don't want to be tinkering with the site while carrying a head full of flu.

Oh my! :monocle: I'm very sorry if that came across as demanding or rude or what-have-you, and I didn't know Flence was sick or I would have kept my trap shut (not that kind of trap).

I hear ya.

My friend works as a grade school teacher and I'm a social worker (essentially) so we trade strains of flu and cold viruses like they were poke-ee-man cards.

It's like having a zoo... and you hate all the animals... and they're all trying to kill you. :awesome:

I'd assume you mean 102 degrees Fahrenheit but this being an Exalted forum I find it more likely that Flence's body temperature is above the boiling temperature of water.

Regardless of the temperature, I hope you recover quickly, Flence. Being sick sucks.
