I was a bit sad when I noticed the little blobs were gone. They’re my favorite


#144

Google changed them along with the latest release of Android because there was “confusion” caused by how they look similar enough to iOS/non-Google Android emojis, which is true but also like, have you seen any other emoji set, they’re all horrific?


#145

Apologies if this has been asked before, but: I’d like to be able to search the archived old original Selectbutton forums, but the crappy old lurker account I had on there doesn’t seem to exist any more, or my login doesn’t work. Is there any way to make a new account or otherwise search that site?


#146

what’s the account? I can change the password on it for you.


#147

I think the username was: Meow


#148

no one by that name!

and hilariously I can’t figure out how to actually add a new user with the way the archive is

what happens if you try to sign up?


#149

Weird, I just dove back into my old emails and I definitely made an account called Meow in 2013. I wonder if it got automatically deprecated due to lack of activity or something. When I tried to make a new account, it loaded for a long time and then gave me a 504 Gateway Timeout error.


#150

ok, so new signups definitely don’t work, that’s not too surprising, the db might not even be writable, I can’t really remember what I did when I migrated it

uhhhh, I’ll think of a solution for this


#151

Thanks for looking into it, I appreciate it!


#152

I know I totally forgot to give you grad program advice even after finding out that you have the same undergrad degree as I do too so I am going to make it up to you here, I swear

I will probably just steal a definitely-long-inactive account and give it to you tbh, it’s a terrible solution but it’s probably the least destructive


#153

That solution would work for me too as long as it’s not likely to mess up someone else’s ability to search!

No worries about that old advice thing, I always have trouble responding to messages of that sort myself.


#154

uhhh which one? samvera or dataverse?


#155

Time to take this to PMs!


#156

hahaha, no shit

well, glad you obviously didn’t need my advice

tell phil hi for me


#157

Hah, Phil rules.


#158

oi did someone try a new mobile stylesheet or am i just not loading something properly


#159

Looks normal here. Which theme are you using?


#160

the default


#161

It’s not just mobile, because I’m seeing it on my PC. Big ass avatars sitting on top of posts instead of beside them and other formatting all screwed up with the default theme. Others seem to work fine.


#162

This is happening on my desktop as well.
