Yeah I was surprised to see nothing about this sudden bug. At first I thought it was because I was blocked, but I confirmed it wasn't the case through my alt...although I couldn't send any PMs from my alt despite being under the limit.
Ah you really felt the full effects of this bug then. Probably was a good thing to be over the limit. Didn't take all that long till I opened the Sentbox and saw the notice there; everything fell into place..
Occasionally have similar loading issues where the button just isn't clickable though, was reloading tabs for a while before that.
Nooo! You know I can't send PMs back...XD
Think I'm a have to send a message every once in a while now and ask why you're not responding. :P
Thankfully, the news post system can be used as a substitute in a pinch! :P
Hehe, that is true. Shall get to the comment there too soon I hope, in my bookmark bar...
It's more obvious if you look at the archives. The Flash Reg Lounge's mood is what I'm referring to: old and new
I guess the best way to describe it is that it's gone from a "holler" emote to a "the fuck!?" emote
Wooah how did I not remember that one...
Meanwhile, the ,':/ emote has gone to an :O emote, which doesn't make sense - almost the exact same emote still exists; why did it get replaced with a different one!?
Yeaaah that one's really nothing alike either! Seems they really didn't think these through, was way more than just the naming...
Also, man...I'm getting a huge nostalgia trip browsing the announcements/posts of yore. Simpler times...well, not quite, it WAS still the period of the global financial crisis after all, but even so...
Noticing the mood really looks more like a smile than a laugh with that one too. Pretty cool how a lot of the old emotes were a little sideways. More dimensional somehow. Didn't remember that bit about them. New ones are definitely clearer/bolder/bigger/smoother but lost a bit of that initial charm.
Yeah things really were simpler back then. :) Appreciable transparency too. Announced half hour downtime and all. Don't know the last time they took time to post about maintenance, you usually just get the splash page now. Guess they might just be way more stressed out these days but indeed cool to look back and see those details.
Yeah, lost in translation. It's funny how a little tilt can change things.
And to wonder how people will perceive all of this a few centuries down the line... so much meaning is bound to be bound to the times. Wonder if the implications of the moods will change too even if the images don't...
You got a point regarding the archives. Even so, I've downloaded the backup and kept it as such - a backup. I'll make them the primary once things get sorted out. I don't think I'll be deleting stuff until it's sorted out.
Sorted out thought as in...? If you're hoping for more space I'm not sure that'll happen anytime soon unfortunately. Apparently the current allotment's an upgrade already. Twice as much for supporters.
One of the troubles of having a backup like this is that there's no longer an authoritative source once the primaries are deleted.
Yeaaah that's true... didn't consider that. :/ No way to verify the archive is from an official source or anything, hmm, hopefully no need for anything I've written to be backed by legitimacy, but good thing to keep in mind. May be wise to move conversations to email if ever you're working out contracts or any kind of agreements that might result in creative disputes down the line...
