GWJ bugs, feature requests, and updates

Yeah I was thing to fine that "I almost died" thread about the site being down but forgot.

Not sure if this is a bug or a feature, but on mobile I can tap just below any of the nav buttons to open their respective drop downs without opening the pages the nav buttons link to. So far example if I tap below "More" I can use the search box.

I'd love to be able to mark PMs as unread to remind me that I want to reply.

You can always bookmark it or add it to a To Do list app. I do the latter.

The video tag needs a width: 100% CSS rule added to it.

Currently (right side of video cut off):

With width: 100% (full frame of video visible):

(I ended up cheating and using my Full HTML format access to make the post in question have the video tag with width:100% applied to it, but it should be the site's default behavior for [video])

EDIT: Actually it should probably be max-width rather than width, so as to not blow up small videos.

Not sure what's going on here, but I'm getting an access denied when trying to access this page: https://www.gamerswithjobs.com/node/...

which turned up in a search for Kentucky Route Zero

Maybe a post in the secret writer’s forum?

Legion, thanks for the suggestion!

Juv3nal: As per his request during a bad time a few weeks back, all of Scott's posts were hidden to avoid "namesearching for personal detail" reasons.

Ok that makes sense, thanks.

Uploading hero images seems to constantly be breaking.

Hi Legion? Did you happen to preview the post before attempting the upload?

Would it be possible to send a notice to the mods (or someone) when someone hits the "Choose Your Tag!" level?

Feature request: I'd like to be able to edit a post and tick a box to indicate that it doesn't need to be flagged as "new" for everyone else (i.e. it's a minor edit, or whatever).

I have a post in the Modded Minecraft thread which I link to in my signature. I keep editing this post whenever I update the pack version, so if someone new wanted to join us, they always have easy access to the most current information. However, I also bump the thread by adding a new post to the end for the regulars, so they're aware. Clicking "new" on the thread would bring you to the old, edited post.

I acknowledge that this might be a very edge use-case, but there ya go.

I would go further and say editing an existing post should never reset the new flag for that post and cause the new links to go there.

I've had it happen then, but I've also had it happen after I've made the post and tried to edit it and add in the hero shot.

I agree. I think if someone really wants everyone to see something new in the edit, they would make a new post and link back to the edit in *that* post. Otherwise, there is no point in making *everyone* jump back to it.

Can we get a dark mode or does someone know a work around to force a dark mode on Windows? I was able to do it on Android, but haven't found anything that works for Windows.

My Android quit doing it last week. I thought maybe the site had one now and it was flipping me back or something.

+1

You can do this yourself with a userstyle, using a style extension like Stylus (or a userscript extension like ViolentMonkey). There is a list of GWJ-targeted styles at https://userstyles.org/styles/browse.... I just installed dark-gwj and it looks pretty good.

1. Install Stylus (not Stylish!) from the extension store [Chrome|Firefox].
2. Visit https://userstyles.org/styles/88215/....
3. Click Install Style on the right.

And weep on iOS.

I'm unable to post embedded Tweets anymore. Instead of getting the page with a Capcha, I'm being told:

Please fix this in a hurry, I'm trying to post something to mess with Legion.
