Could it be possible to have a little "graphic hickey" appear on the "page with folded top-left corner icon of whatever flavor" of a thread-start Lounge post that would collapse the whole damn thing and all subsequent discussion ?
Or an option to hide "removed threads and all comments" on a UI wide basis ?
I haven't seen anything like this, but I think it would be useful.
Pete O'Hanlon already covered the icons (In case you missed that message, like some of my friends would )
All of the books in the world contain no more information than is broadcast as video in a single large American city in a single year. Not all bits have equal value.
Hi Bill, I'm afraid I can't improve on Pete's answer, and sorry for the delay, as I was out for the day; first of May is a one-day tournament I don't wanna miss. Anyway, happy scrolling.
PS: I have chosen the "Answer" icon here, and FYI
1. I don't always agree with the default message type CP offers
2. the message type has impact on the rep points one gets
3. the message type can be changed afterwards, however the rep stuff seems to ignore that.
Just now I noticed that, you have added "FB" and "G+" as the alternate login method in CP. That's really great but you forgot to include Twitter and OpenID there. Are you going to plan those in near future?
BTW, what will happen when I already logged-in and want to add those accounts in CP, so that, I can login directly here using any of the account. There should be some option in the profile page.
1. Generally, I keep my CP logged in all the time.
2. This was what I tried: I went into settings, changed it to Paste as HTML, saved it.
3. Went to Q&A - looked at few questions. Answered few.
4. Found my paste is again being encoded. Checked and found that my settings are back to default first option of paste.
I just repeated step 2, 3 and found step 4!
PS: I am on Firefox 11. Did Cntrl+F5 few times. Also, logged out and logged in last time when I did the change.
Just tried to post a response in The Lounge and I got this message.
Now, I admit that I had used gotten in that response but shirley you have not 'improved' the naughty words filter to that extent!
Incidentally I am unable to cancel the unposted message.
The message I was trying to reply to had been deleted which was the cause of the difficulty.
However the inability to cancel would seem to me to be a bug(ish)

Offering support for someone being so blatantly reckless and abusive goes against my better nature, but I'll make an exception due to the fact that I've just managed to make a up of coffee that actually includes coffee.
My guess is the message you are trying to reply to has been deleted. The bug is the code that provides the error message is checking existence of the message as part of it's check for permissions to do the action, so the message is, well, bugish.
There is a button Vote to Remove. everytime some one hit that link the op loose 160 points. that is cool. but same message can't react same way for all person. It can also happen that one or two idiot think they don't deserve to read this kind of things. so they keep hitting Vote to Remove.
Why do you add -160 point immediately? he might not deserve it.
I would suggest:
don't subtract -160 immediately, if several people confirm that text do not deserve to be seen in public then remove it from forum and subtract some value.
Honestly speaking there is lots of jerks like me in the forum who like to give -160 point because ???? whatever.
And we removed this feature a long time ago as well, hence my questions. If you were still losing points or that then I would be concerned, but since you're not, and merely raising an issue that was resolved 3 months ago, I'll call this issue closed.
I get the Daily Insider by email. Recently the links started opening inside a codeproject frame. Is there an option to prevent the Daily Insider news links opening in a code project frame?
I find it very annoying to have to click "Remove Frame" every time. Putting the linked articles in a frame screws with mousewheel scrolling the article and drastically reduces the available screen real estate for reading the article. All for what? I already know that the link to the article has come through Code Project!

Today's Daily News items are redirecting back to CP where the articles are embedded in an IFrame - really?! I thought it was generally agreed upon that IFrames suck and look like crap to boot. What was the problem with redirecting to the original article?
