The Doom that Came to SpaceBattles
The Doom that Came to SpaceBattles
#1
Well, looks like SB has begun the XenForo2 upgrade delayed by the problem-children PM scandal investigation thing. Hopefully the various fixes that have been ongoing for teething troubles on SV will already be included, but I still don't like how all the time stamps are "X minutes ago" until it gets to a full hour, and some of the layout differences that would look fine at full screen but make things awkward the way I prefer to have it at about a 5:3 ratio instead of 16:9. And some of the layout changes in general, like the timestamps being at the top of posts instead of the bottom, or how user profile pages are tabbed instead of linear and more things are unusably broken with JavaScript turned off, but meh. That's progress for you, and I can understand not wanting to let the forum software fall into "unsupported" territory given the size of the database and number of users.

Is anyone else still getting the in maintenance notice? I've dumped my cache files and tried going through the SB.com website path but the forums are still throwing up the warning

Yeah, it is back up for me now too. Time well wasted

Is it just me or do the "Reply too Short" Warnings make you want to break out the random content generators to pad a post. (which is apparently against the rules.

Yeah, it's stupid, it doesn't work well if you take the basic security precaution of running noscript and encourages people to waffle instead of producing clear succint posts.

You can just overrule the warning you know?

It's a way to deal with spammy 5 word posts that offer no benefit to the thread, nothing more, nothing less.

Not if you have javascript turned off, you can't. And if you hit the Back button to add more stuff to your post, even though it didn't actually go through, it engages the 1-minute cooldown timer as if it had before it'll actually let you post.

Why are you using a script blocker on SB? It's not like they're cramming advertisements and ad trackers down our throats. Xenforo is known for being pretty stable, and Xon would never implement a plug-in if he thought there was a chance it could do someone's computer harm, or at the least, break the website on a SBer's preferred web browser.
Yasuri Nanami is my number one waifu, if only because she would horribly murder all the others if they didn't shut up and toe the line.

Because I run the scriptblocker by default. I consider it a basic security precaution.

I run NoScript, Privacy Badger, and uBlock on every site.

I use a script blocker on SB (and SV for that matter) because if I do not, the browser's memory use ticks up by about 500kb per second. I've only got a couple Gb of free RAM so things are tightish even without that, along with what others have said about blocking scripts by default as a basic security precaution.
