Re: [Redesign] User Online Banner

I went for the Online (only) icon. A simple green circle would work. Adding the radial points takes more space and may not look good in other styles. The Offline icon is unclear on meaning. it should be a solid red circle, but having "no icon" says it best. This is consistent with the corner banner,...

Re: [Redesign] User Online Banner

Please don't break usability by selecting the wrong icon. Glowing or other attention-getting effects simply don't work in the prosilver scheme. I recommend reviewing Google's material design guidelines: Accessibility I like hanakin's idea to have a simple red or green circle to the right of the user...

Re: Has someone been updating Area51's board software?

This site has definitely been modified, as the board login security dropped to insecure http://.

I was about to submit a bug tracker report and checked one last time. Within the last few minutes of this post time, https:// protocol was restored.

Re: PHPBB3-15097 - Board statistics page should show PHP version

This update creates two new variables 'SOFTWARE_HEADING' and 'PHP_VERSION' not present in the existing language packs (other than the supplied British English). My default language is American English, which displays the variables literally. I've updated the bug tracker (and github) with my comments.

Development wiki - Manual software testing

The 3.1.10 release discussion has generated an interest to understand software testing from a user's perspective. There was a request to create a wiki page, which I have done. I started a new topic in the support forum: Wiki - Testing phpBB software Following a discussion in Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.1.1...

In hindsight, I see that I did misunderstood your point. Thank you, I will wait for the correct solution.

Re: [PHPBB3-14556] Disapproving posts with notification causes postgreSQL error (> 4,000 characters)

This is my first board as a moderator (and site admin), so I have no prior experience on what "seems right". Perhaps my board operates differently than the majority of users, but the action of creating a disapproval notice > 4000 characters has triggered an error. Asking a moderator to check the pos...

Re: [PHPBB3-14556] Disapproving posts with notification causes postgreSQL error (> 4,000 characters)

As an aside what are you saying about disapproving a post that takes so many characters? I doubt that I have ever gone over 100! This is the critical point to answer. I agree the disapproval message itself can be less than 100 characters, but my board tries to help people. As a courtesy, we always ...
