I ended up digging through the css on chrome and editing it. I pulled up a PM window, typed 'test' in it, and then right-clicked on 'test' to pull up the contextual menu, then scrolled down to inspect it. I scrolled through there until I found what color property the text was using in the css that pops up (this will be the first 'color' property without a strikethrough) and edited it to a color that would show up against the dark background. (In my case, #FFFFFF (white) on the slate skin.) Thankfully, thus far it has stuck. Thus far. Fingers and toes remaining crossed.
@meg said in Forum Bug?:
Speaking of, why do we even see if someone we ignore posts? i don't give a shit, man.
Ignoring users isn't a core functionality for nodebb. We're using the latest version of https://github.com/exo-do/nodebb-plugin-ignore-users , and that's about all I can do unless I import the repo and get my hands dirty, which iiiisn't gonna happen. :)
Plus the whole platform is like, fragile. We're due for another update but even with daily rotating backups I'm kinda worried to do it because once I hit that button anything can happen.

Oh please don't misunderstand :) I never thought you guys were /truly/ tired of answering my questions at all. As a matter of fact, whenever I have posed a question of any sort on the IRC/Discord channel, I've always gotten a response. Incredibly helpful community you have. And I'm glad you haven't tired of me just yet because I have 0 experience in coding and will likely be asking hundreds more. (Ok. Well I do CSS, PHP, Java, HTML but those are hardly relevant at the moment).
At least CSS and HTML are both very relevant if you want to get creative with your web experience!
But yes, don't be shy to ask questions. It's always hard to get into a new library, especially so if the language itself is unfamiliar. It can also be diffucult for us devs that already know the system well to perceive what is confusing, unclear or hard for a newcomer to grasp; so questions help us too in a way. :)
@apos said in Alternative Formats to MU:
Could probably change how people enter a scene to accompany a set, to formalize the culture for whether someone is 'in' or not, compared to the whole, 'I'm here but I'm not here because I haven't made a set' thing that I find vaguely ridiculous and awkward.
That's again one of those things that I think becomes much easier in a web-only game. The scene is a web page. You can access it if it's public, or if you've been invited to. You join a scene when you pose into it, and you can do so from any of your alts. The lurking state is still there - it's what you do when you're reading the existing poses on the page to see what's going on. But it's invisible to the other participants.
But alas, telnet.
I like the idea of a MU* Craigslist (sans....whatever one finds inappropriate). My knowledge/talents of MU* building is just ideas and talking out logistics. If people need an ideasman, I'm happy to provide :D
You know, that goes to show that if you're doomed to failure, make it so epic that everyone talks about it for years to come.
@WTFE said in Getting a sense of what sort of MU* ads are okay:
IIRC there were two criticisms of Flights'n'Tights. One was the invalid "ew, gay superheroes!" one. The other was calling out the "we're inclusive" thing paired with the "no girls!" thing juxtaposed with it. That latter one is valid, IMO.
Oh man, I remember that one! That was an... interesting read, if in an arena of MU*s I'm not as familiar with.
