Re: Board Requests (Mods?)

I think the main character is part Mexican, and part Irish, so it should probably be Hot Pink and Shamrock Green (rather than Lime green)

Re: Headphone suggestions?

I'd try some of the basic $15-20 headphones. Keep in mind that your audio _source_ is half the battle. An MP3 player isn't exactly the London Philharmonic in concert hall. Get a good mp3 player, and even halfway decent headphones will sound okay at the mid-level volume. Just terrible at the high end.

I find it interesting that my point was avoided. You can't use ambergris as an example of fish being able to puke. It's from a mammal :)

Re: Old Forums

Well, technically I was talking about attempting a merge with the old Blank Label Comic forums. I'll have to pull a copy of the database, nuke everything _but_ wapsi (maybe a couple of the generic topics), nuke most of (if not all of) the users, then try a test merger or two.

Re: Board Requests (Mods?)

subsilver defaults to the left hand side. Prosilver (this one) defaults to the right hand side.

It can't be changed without modifying the CSS file. (I just looked it up)

It might be better to simply upload and modify a few other themes for advertising and let people choose between them.

I spent a number of years in theatre. It was _stage_ right.

Re: Quirky Girl

Hm. Unless Paul does it himself, I don't see the moderators being able to regularly 'beat' the forum-goers to creating the topic du jour. I'm often working at that time :)

Re: Headphone suggestions?

I've heard good things about the bose headsets - I didn't mention them because they're really oriented towards loud repetitive noise. (train, plane, road noise, etc)

One thing about 'poster on the right' is that for smaller screens (tablets, netbooks), you still can read the post without scrolling (much).

Re: Headphone suggestions?

Well, I have two sets hanging over a hook about ten feet from me, and from what I've found, there's no real difference between the $20 headphones and the $200 headphones - as long as you're using them in a normal environment, and you _don't_ crank up the volume. The high end is the point where cheap...

Re: Board Requests (Mods?)

Currently there's only the one theme. No other themes have been downloaded/modified as of yet. That's where most of those extra layout bits come from, like colour and poster info. (Actually the poster info might be a setting in the board. I'll admit I'm used to it being on the left myself. Yes, that...

Yes, I've heard of ambergris. Have you heard that whales are mammals, not fish?

Re: For My Fish 2012-08-01

Okay - for me, when I was in Daily Wapsi Square Discussion looking at this thread, there was a red circle with red 'text' lines inside of it. When I clicked _on_ the icon, it took me straight to your post. Another thread had a blue circle with blue text lines. That one had no unread posts. (Edit, I ...

Re: For My Fish 2012-08-01

Sorry, phpBB doesn't have threaded capabilities, that's what the "quote" button is for. ;) And what good is threading if the posts you've already read aren't distinguished from the new posts? Using threading on Usenet or mailing lists with a specialized reader that keeps track of read and unread po...

Re: How'd you find WS? (secretly & slightly on-topic)

Well, I can say that I didn't find Wapsi Square. Paul found me when Blank Label Comics was put together, and I hosted them.

I still have a copy of the old BLC forum; I may see what I can do about breaking a copy of the old Wapsi threads loose to plug into here. (Read only, of course)
