A ton of old threads that I had already read are suddenly being marked as unreal at random for no reason, especially in boards rarely posted in.

Dave cleared the database table that keeps track of what threads you have read. This is standard practice as that table gets massive to the point where it slows the forum down. So it has to be cleared from time to time. In other words, it's not a bug.

Did everything get cleared, or just stuff that was like say, more than 30 days old or something?

why is Sanchez's huge sig not truncated like the others?   did you do something clever, Sanchez?  or is this a random glitch?

I'm still trying to work out the kinks in that feature. It was surprisingly hard to do because sometimes the images in people's signatures don't load until after the script has assessed the height. It happens to Kalwejt's too.

shua / anyone else: On second thought, how big is too big, in your opinion?

Kalwejt and Sanchez's signatures are just under the height threshold where the script truncates them. This was my "stab in the dark" default max height, and I figured it might need to be adjusted.

Maybe restrict the height by 20% more or so? I'm trying to find a sweet spot that respects Atlas's culture of large signatures but restricts ones that are a bit too tall. So for instance I can say going so far as 50% of Sanchez's signature's height would be too far.

For myself I don't see much point of a setting that restricts very large signatures but "respects Atlas's  culture of large signatures" since if people want that culture they can leave that setting off.  I'd sort of like a setting that just retains the quotes and small campaign banner type images (like maybe two-thirds the size of the pic in your sig, max).  I've been viewing the forum with sigs off for a long time but was giving this setting a try since you installed it.

Another setting or feature that would be really useful is to be able to a "preview" sigs when you change them in the profile settings, and maybe some code shortcut buttons.

This.

Also, is there a way to make bbcode not count towards the signature character limit?

Does it happen all the time, or only when you quote another user's post?
Not all the time, but it doesn't depend on quoting people either. It's as if my post isn't being posted. Then I open Atlas in another tab and I see that it's been posted, but in the first Atlas tab it's still loading.

Just wondering - when you see his posts, are the newly-visible posts always at the very top of the page, like the first post? If so I'm aware of this and I fixed it, and I'll send it into Dave soon.

I just noticed that we have an elephant emoji  Elephant but no donkey one [#e:donkey].  The same is true for Unicode emojis.  I can see why Unicode hasn't bothered to add a donkey emoji to the horse emoji, but we don't even have a horse emoji either.

FYI among some other fixes, the emoji bar above posts now needs to be turned on manually via the mod settings in your profile (Click Profile -> Atlas - Forum Settings), check off "Show quick use emojis bar above Post/PM text control"

other fixes included:

[tweet] bbcode is now longer so sensitive (so this fixes shua's issue). Just put the url in there, and if you accidentally include a space or line drop by accident, it'll be ignored

Ignored users, when the "ignore more fully" option is enabled, are more properly hidden (sometimes their post would show if it was the very first on a page).

Hide tall signatures function is now less buggy. Some people's signatures that weren't too tall were getting chopped off with no ability to resize, and others that should have weren't getting truncated. Hopefully this fixes those problems.

I improved the quote alert system so there are less SQL queries issued when you make the post that quotes someone. Hopefully that makes a difference and speeds posting up a little.

The flash button (and bbcode) on the Post page is now disabled. It wasn't really functional and I doubt anyone used it anyway, but it's not an issue now. Kudos TF for pointing it out.

And some other things I can't think of right now.

Thank you, Virginia. It is refreshing to see some real improvements to this forum.

Unfortunately I am not. Perhaps I've seen enough use of the period as a delimiter to find the comma less useful unless the number is over a million. My real preference for big numbers is metric prefixes or scientific notation. Smiley

The fact that you Anglo-Saxons use the comma as a delimiter is extremely annoying. I haven't gotten used to it yet, and never will.  Grumpy
Maybe we ought to switch to the duodecimal system in order to avoid delimiters.

I'm still curious about this. It doesn't do it on my test forum. I think Dave just wanted it this way. I'd have thought it's a bug of sorts but it appears with commas on the profile page too, which wouldn't make sense if it was a bug.

The new feature to hide obnoxiously large signatures seems to be a tad inconsistent. For example, Antonio's sig which is relatively small is partially hidden with the option to view more. Meanwhile Texarkana's sig, among others with large pictures in theirs, is still fully visible.

I checked Antonio's signature earlier as I was curious about this. It turns out that he actually embedded an image in the signature, but the link is inactive for some reason, so no image displays. If you pay close attention, when the page loads, his signature space goes from really tall to really small, as the invalid image is hidden by the browser. The problem is, the script I use to collapse signatures detects the large height before the browser collapses it. It would be very tricky to fix this. The better option would be for Antonio to just fix his sig image Tongue

The current max height for signatures is 480 px. It's likely Tex's is just under that if it is still visible (I'm not sure if it is or isn't). I have to set some sort of max height, so if a sig is 479 px tall, it'll show, but 481 wouldn't.

For some reason, I've noticed that when I try to preview a post with less than 14,000 characters left, the preview function does not work. I'm not sure if this is a problem with Atlas or my computer, but this is odd.
