When site chat is down, I usually figure that Kison et al are working on it.

I think you're thinking about forum ignores. I was referring to ignores in the on-site chat.

A couple small updates. Some of these have actually been up for a few weeks but are only now being announced. Also, borkjerfkin has stepped in to help out and has already begun tackling several tasks, so please welcome him!

  • FORUM:
    • Attempting to grant users with certain characters in their username(ex. user +__+) to a private topic will now work. See here for more on the original issue. Please thank BORKJERFKIN for this fix!
    • Anyone with editing access to a private topic will now be able to add topic moderators to the thread. You can do this by editing the first post of the topic; you should see a second form right below where you add regular users to the topic. These topic moderators will have the ability to edit posts and lock & unlock the topic. Please thank BORKJERFKIN for this feature!
    • If your access to a private topic has been revoked, it will no longer appear under Bookmarks or Subscriptions.
I've had a few others reach out offering to help out, so you might be seeing their names pop up here in the future. :)

Holy cow! does this mean I don't have to go in and do this as long as the original poster is still around to hand it off? Man this will be good.

Tried typing (countdown)X years(/countdown), most likely.
Which is a fickly thing.
Hours works.
Weeks, I've found not so much.
Months, may or may not work.
0 days, 1 hour, 48 minutes <--2 hours.
1 day, 23 hours, 48 minutes <--2 days.
[countdown]0.00[/countdown] <--2 weeks.
[countdown]0.00[/countdown] <--2 months.
[countdown]0.00[/countdown] <--2 years.
Code: Select all
[countdown]2 hours[/countdown]
[countdown]2 days[/countdown]
[countdown]2 weeks[/countdown]
[countdown]2 months[/countdown]
[countdown]2 years[/countdown]

^So, hours works; days works; weeks, months, and years do not, for the countdown timer.

Which is why when you do a countdown which is for weeks, months, or years, you need to manually type in the date.

Quite annoying, honestly. I can understand not needing months/years (we don't need those outside of special circumstances), but most mods would GREATLY appreciate it if they could just type "countdown: 1/2/3 weeks" for deadlines, rather than having to manually look up what the date is in 1/2/3 weeks. (I have to whip up a calendar each and every time I set weeks-deadlines, because I can't do the mental math reliably.)

There are 7 days to a week. It's not hard.

I imagine "weeks" is just not recognised (and you can just use 7 times the number of days), and "month" and "year" are both changeable so it makes sense not to program them in

Although it's also the only one that would make sense as working as it's consistent, months change every month and leap years exist.

It's just a case of the values that actually show though, as seconds don't work either.
