Yes, I'm getting them all the time, but only with the "after yours" link. Am I the only one?
Just fixed it!
Peter, "the fixer" Gerard. Only thing I don't like is being called member. Kind of makes me self conscious and wonder what a female member should be called.
Yes, I'm the fixer all right, and I can even fix your post so there's an "r" at the end of my first name!
OK I read the instructions, and now I see that the links are to the posts that are in the various topics.
So far so good. THANK YOU PETER! AND BEN. AND DOUG. AND EVERYONE ELSE WHO WAS A PART OF MAKING THE NEW D-WORD HAPPEN. Sorry I'm yelling. I'm just so bloody excited.
It could be that I need to look a little further, but are you going to have instructions, or panels that show the tools you can use - on the posting pages? It would be wonderful.
Click on the little blue ? icon above the posting box for posting instructions. Or click "Help" in the menu at the top of the page for general instructions. Anything else, just ask here!
Erica, Glad you like it!
Long live the search function!
Milt, there's also the Help page that you can access from the top menu. You'll find a "Quick Guide" that I wrote very quickly, so it still lacks sophistication and illustration. (Volunteers needed to improve it.)
Peter (& Ben), thanks so much for the new version. I love it already... Methinks the updated site will save me at least 15 minutes of D-word browsing a day; of course, since it's so easy, I'll probably be wasting time, er, posting even more than before. Great job!
Thanks Peter, Ben, Doug, John, and everybody else!!! This is addictive. RIP Facebook, lol
Okay, a couple of other questions that come up for me -- just suggestions for the future "to-do" list, perhaps?
Most modern browsers will provide automatic spell check - and who's to decide the default spelling for an inbuilt D-Word checker - "color" or "colour"?
You say tomato...
Got the error the first time I tried to upload my photo. Was trying to do 3 different things at once, I'm sure it was because it was way too big and a TIFF. When I reduced it and converted to JPEG it was fine, but might be nice to give the specs for photos. Otherwise, a fabulous job, congratulations.
It would be nice if everybody could upload a picture than we can easily identify them with.
This doesn't have to be a portrait of yourself, it can as well be a picture of your camera, your cat, or a still from a film you made.
I'm not sure if this was covered already-- but i noticed in my first post when i tried to use a couple sets of dashes ( - ) it did a strike-thru thingie. I previewed the post first and changed it to single dashes. Is that a bug or are you not s'posed to use double-dashes? Cuz god knows-me-- and Emily Dickinson-we loves-the long-dash. -
oh look i did it again!
p.s. Peter et al: you guys rock! this was a LOT of work. wow.
Margot, welcome back! I think I'm going to upload your eye surgery picture as your user profile picture...
I think we should get rid of the strike-through feature altogether. It's kind of a leftover from other markup tools, and it'll be more painful than useful.
Margot, is that an art piece by your friend you are using for your image? I was kind of hoping for the eyelid picture, but this one's pretty cool.
I think you can do the double dash without it crossing things out, but only if there's a space between the dashes and the word -- like this.
Banana installation? The search function is your friend
John with a better memory than Erica? I'm impressed (by the search function).
where are the instructions for how to do markup? i can't find them....perhaps i have a bug
i like the -strike-through-! Don't get rid of it! it reminds me of jacques derrida
See the blue question mark icon above the post, to the right of your location?
And who's Jaques Derrida?
