In Topic: How can a post have 0 views?

Sun Sep 24, 2017 2:36 AM

The thought of newly re-written 'everything' is scary. For a while I'd expect the Web Comments'll jam-packed with bug reports. If not real ones, then ones that stem from not knowing how the new stuff works.


It's actually been out for a while now, so it's pretty stable at this point and it's unlikely we'll see much in the way of bugs that haven't already been reported and fixed.  I just haven't upgraded it here yet as it's a huge amount of work for me to perform such a major upgrade.  I'll likely have to spend a week full-time working on the migration.  I already have it running on another server so I could confirm that I can upgrade the forum without issues, but the entire forum theme needs to be redone, and I have to install various third-party modifications to replace some functionality for mods I have installed presently (as these also had to be rewritten).  


But I do expect many messages asking how to do things that may have changed in some fashion.  And I'm sure some people will complain, as is usually the case when the forum changes in any significant way.

Yes. Looks like there has to be a new additional reply made before both views & replies are updated.


That is interesting and not something I've noticed before.  If that's the case, I'd certainly call it a bug in the forum software.  Will have to see if this has been "fixed" in the newest version of the forum software (which was basically rewritten from scratch). 



In Topic: Atari 65XE Arabic

So, somebody here complained that I pointed out that that ad clearly shows that women are second grade human beings in countries like Saudi Arabia and following that, without ANY notification or even asking about it the posting was removed.


OK. so someone here was "hurt" because I say women are treated second rate in countries like Saudi Arabia.


Your post was removed because politics and religious discussions are not permitted on AtariAge.  I don't agree with Saudi Arabia's treatment of women either, but this is not the place to discuss it. 



In Topic: Is the 8 bit uninspiring?

That's the end of this thread.  Emkay, don't start any more Atari 8-bit or any other system comparison threads.
