    That ain't your thread.

    I'm going to give you a new title now. Seriously, read the read. He asked where the internet was stored. It's comedy gold. Hence, a Memorable Thread that got Chatlogged.

    I'm just posting to say thanks. Whatever magic Alpha has done seems to have worked. Haven't been MySQL'd at all today. Before I'd get SQL'd every other post. So yeah, cheers.

    He got banned for deliberately posting porn multiple times specifically and being too fucking retarded to follow the rules in general.

    it's in both because it's that good. Now shush. it was probably cross-posted while the forum was split so that we could all bask in it's glory. I don't see why you're making a fuss.

    Hmm, here is a thought. How about a poll? It would ask how people felt about the current sig situation, or ask how people would feel if we did away with sigs and had larger linkable avatars. I would prefer the latter.

    True, that was handy.

    Maybe we can get Alpha to keep the sigs gone but give us the ability to put Xfire, Gamertags, ect just under our avatars. Or I guess we could just toss them into our profile.

    You asked if it would help. I said no, it's not going to help. And it's mostly likely not going to make a smidge of difference when it comes to stupid people who don't check for announcements or bug reports.

    Oh. Yeah.

    Anyways... yeah, the forums are working pretty slick. Pretty awesome. I wonder how it will work during the comic days.

    The theory is that the forums will no longer experience the sort of ass-raping they did on new comic days. They most likely won't be fast as a greased Scotsman, but there should be a level of functionality we just haven't been seeing on MWF lately.

    How about a 'Display sigs' option in our profiles? If you have it on, sigs are shown, in not, they're not.

    There's gotta be a fairly basic hack around for that.

    Yeah, there is. Bulldrek uses it (avatars and sigs off by default) and it works pretty well.

    So, now that the chat forums have been re-integrated, what purpose does META serve?

    Chatforum and ot-forums still have their own policies, mods, and issues. The Monkey Den is going to serve for general bug reports and on-topic issues. META will serve for chat issues.

    See also, archive and chatlog.

    The only problem I see is the chatmods going into OT territory and starting up another wave of asshattery. Granted, the current chatmods are for the most part more responsible than that, but it could still happen.

    why the hell do you think the divide stopped that? It was just as easy to pull that sort of thing a week ago, and guess what? It didn't happen publicly.

    fixed.

    I want my sig. :( This is the only place I can actually use it.

    If you want a practical reason then I will add that it helped me quickly analyze a thread to see what was going on. I would just look for my sig and see what was going on after.

    Its called postgres and we will be switching to it in 3.0 (as well as very liberal use of memcache)

    I would like to switch sooner, but I would have to rewrite all the optimized queries I made. If Im going to rewrite stuff, I might as well do it just once.

    Sigs will come back.

    In 3.0 I will have several options, one of which will be turning off sigs, avatars, and images (a low res forum if you will).

    You may want to do some speed testing on Postgres. My experience has been that MySql is the fastest of the fast, it just lacks recovery features and some sql limitations (much inproved in 4, greater still in 5).

    For the main site Postgres is a good idea, but I'm not certain it would be an improvement for the forums.

    Thats what memcache is for. I am having locking issues with MySQL, and more importantly, data corruption issues when MySQL dumps. However, I will stress test postgres before I bring it in.

    I wasn't a mod back then.

    Back then, I was screwing around and decided, on a whim, to check the Usergroups. I saw the pollmaster group, and researched it. After becoming a mod, everything came full circle :o
