GWJ bugs, feature requests, and updates

The debug console in Firefox says: "The resource at “https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DQTbAi5U...” was blocked because tracking protection is enabled."

So that explains that. Turning off the tracking protection option in my settings 'fixes' the problem.

I am seeing this very often lately, always with pbs.twimg.com images. I don't know if GWJ can do anything, but it is pretty annoying.

That would be something on the image hosts end. Basically if you have tracking prevention turned on they are refusing to serve you images. Nothing the GWJ people can do about that.

If I right click and do view image, it shows just fine in a new tab, just embedded in GWJ doesn't work.

That's probably because tracking prevention is preventing the image request from setting a third party cookie. You're viewing the image on GWJ, but the image host wants to store tracking data with your browser. If you view the image directly, the tracking data is being served from the same host as the image, so it's less suspect.

Any possibility of getting the customizable spoiler tag back? As in:

{spoiler="End-game spoilers"}spoilery stuff{/spoiler}

Oh great. I wrote spoiler too many times, and now it doesn't look like a real word to me any more.

It's a workaround, but you could put them inside a quoute.

Did something happen to the RSS?

We have an RSS?

(For the front page, I'm guessing?)

For the podcast. Can't update since about Tuesday.

I checked it on Downcast just now and it works ok. Haven't had reports from anyone else of issues. What program do you use for podcasts?

There also used to be a set of RSS feeds for newly-created threads. They've been down since the update, and I've mentioned it a couple of times, but I might be the only one who cares. It really was much easier than scouring the whole list of threads for new ones of interest to me.
