Ah - I wondered - I was sure I'd found it by twiddling numbers at the end of the URL before, but had concluded I was imagining that!

Happened before we moved onto this board software IIRC. There used to be some material on the main site, but I've literally just found out, "Our archive pages, with material going back (gulp) 10 years, are currently offline, but will be available as soon as we've finished cataloging them".

That explains all the scrabbling and squeaking noises I heard earlier today. I thought it was mice in the walls, but now understand it was the Admins scrambling to be first with their explanations of why they would be unable to help with this project.

Personally, I nominate RooK.

Another indirect approach -there's this really useful piece of software which I use that changes the blue/red light component in the screen display depending on the time of day - a big help at night. That takes a lot of the harsh edge off the white.

Depending on your browser, you can set your colour preferences to override the page display settings. For example, in Firefox, if you go to preferences (it is under 'edit' in the Linux version, I think perhaps under 'tools' in the Windows version, you can go to the 'fonts and colors' segment under 'content' select fonts and colors, change to what you like and ensure you tick the 'override' box, and there you go. Just did it in FF and have white text on black background.

Some browsers don't have such a colour preference, and you might want to check out some others if your's doesn't. I have only Iron which doesn't (non-tracking version of google chromium) and FF on this throw away netbook, so perhaps others can advice if you are using something different. I seem to recall Opera had this preference and I would never advise anyone to use Infernal Exploder

How did the rule concerning the length of sigs come about, and why isn't it part of the 10Cs? When someone gets asked to shorten a sig (I think Jengie Jon pointed out my four-liner once), who's to stop them saying "I don't see it written down anywhere. Make me! [Razz] " or some variation on that theme?

Not questioning the rule, mind you... just wondering, is all.

It was perhaps Erin's whim.

I find myself in agreement, and with a will to make it so - should the making be necessary.

The 10Cs are designed as broad statements giving the hosts and admins the necessary freedom to do what's needed to keep the boards functioning and guide people so they know what's expected. They aren't a book of legal rules containing everything.

Most little things are in the FAQs or somewhere specifically relevant. In the case of sig length, you'll find it clearly stated on the edit profile page. Next to the box for your signature it says:
quote:
Signatures appear at the bottom of your posts. You can use UBB code in your signature, but not HTML. Please limit your signature to no more than four lines. Long signatures make the Baby Jesus cry. Images are OFF.

When I was last editing my signature I kept to the line limit, but I discovered that there is also a character limit enforced by the system. It might be useful to mention that in the guidance text, for other verbose people.

I guess most people will find the character limit easily enough if they're sufficiently verbose. I found it when trying to put a list of links to photos into my sig because the URL address counted even though not displayed (tinyURL is great sometimes!).

[ETA: it's four lines viewed here]

In theory you can edit as many times as you like, but the 2 minute window applies from the moment of the initial post being made so it's pretty hard to get multiple edits in.

Test edit 1

Test edit 2 - yep, it's possible. You just need to be really quick [Smile]

Time's harrow.

Most topics in Heaven are fairly ephemeral, so the periodic tidy tends to prune to a week/10 days.

Thanks. Her profile wasn't coming up; and I and others couldn't bring up her last posts.

I appreciate having her shipmate number. I couldn't look on the main boards for her posts, because of all the posts *about* her. I hadn't yet tried the archives.

**Given that posts are available this backdoor way, would it be possible to just keep a person's profile showable and directory-able? (Without the capacity for PMs or active links in it.)** It would give us more time to get used to someone's absence, rather than having the person AND the profile disappear.

FWIW. Thanks.

I'm afraid not. It's a restriction of the software. I really don't like disbling member accounts when they die, but unfortunately it's a necessity to stop any sickos who may have that user's password getting into the account and posting stuff.

If we're told about a member who's died, their details and a link to their profile are added to this thread in Glory.
