proposal to retaliate by trademarking memes™

really though I downloaded the code base once and srsly and the others responsible for this site don't get enough credit for wrangling that mess into a functioning website for me to dump my batman dream blogs.

lol seriously; it's like they never really wanted anybody to ever do what we did heh

I remember The Telegraph running their own one sub mini version. Didn't really catch traction among the audience.

that's not still around is it? I can't imagine that they kept running it more than a few months after it was "open sourced"

Well, if this is gonna be the final release, can we update to it already?

[–]trimalchio[S] 7 points8 points ago

srsly did stuff to ours to make it more bearable like removing the multi-reddits and stuff so unless there's something that we're actually wanting from newer code I'm not sure it's worth even trying to incorporate whatever they've done with the code since we updated.

honestly i don't see much point to bothering with their actual code much more than taking whichever release is more appropriate for how we actually like to use this place and then modify it as much as we want from there....

but of course, it might just be easier to start from the code they made for raddit since it has a lot less "special sauce" crap

I want forum signatures that I can fill with sparkly text

you are both late and a monster :P

the first version of "the offsite" was just a vBulletin board and it was like omg no please don't make me read a bunch of one line or even one word responses as these huge blocks with a profile and avatar and signature.... it didn't keep people engaged i guess lol

anywho, feature requests are officially nobody's problem. if you can get nobody to code them, then they'll be posted immediately
