Title: 100 topics per page instead of 50
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on May 10, 2016, 11:24:34 pm
Because of a severe bug with Topic Cloning mod rendering most sub-forum pages 2 until the second to last page pretty much impossible to sort through (the first and last page of each sub-forum are unnafected), I have now increased the amount of topics per page from 50 to 100 for the time being. We were aware of the issue a long time ago, but the bug effects seems to get worse with larger sub-forums.


If you notice too many slowdowns as a result of this or if the server crashes, then let me know and I'll switch to a different temporary solution (which would involve splitting each sub-forum so that they don't have more than 2 pages each) until the author of the mod figures out the solution and that we manage to install the update.

Yeah true, but it's just extra text for the most part so it should not be that much of a big deal. However, because a small 1st post preview shows up on mouseover for each topic I reduced the Nice tooltips to 200 characters instead of 500.

That should help alittle then

Indeed. My only issue is that if a topic post has an animated screenshot right in the first 200 characters, then the screenshot will most likely be loaded (unless it only loads on mouseover?). But I checked and it's not that common.

Couldn't you disable that somehow?

Nope, sadly, unless I just disable nice tooltips entirely for everyone. Eventually we will most likely just do our own forum templates anyway I think.

Yeah, a person at school thought I was on a different website since they saw another with the same theme xD

Wait, did another website re-use our theme verbatim? O.O I know KnexFlux uses a theme that is heavily inspired from ours but the colors are different.

IDK but she thought I was on the same website that she used to frequent but she didn't tell me the address.
Title: Re: 100 topics per page instead of 50
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on May 11, 2016, 04:17:11 am
Oh ok. Maybe she thought it was the same due to colors being similar.

It is possible, I do like the color palette that we have though.

Yeah I went with green since blue and green were my favorite colors, but blue was already in use by Omnimaga, which I also created. Ironically, the original Omnimaga logo, in use from September 2001 to August 2002, was also green.

That is cool, what does the Omni symbol represent?
Title: Re: 100 topics per page instead of 50
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on May 17, 2016, 03:57:54 pm
Well, if you mean the name then it means Omni-magic (or magic everywhere or a magic that does everything)

Okay, DJ of Magic Everywhere. :P

<_< Now I hope you don't call me like that cuz this will sound weird lol. That said I would prefer people calling me DJ Magic Everywhere or DJ Omnimaga rather than just Omnimaga, because the latter leads to some confusion <_<

What about just DJ?
Or Disc Jokey?
Or Disc Jokey Omnimaga?
Or Disc Jokey Magic Everywhere?
Or Mr. K?

And are you really a DJ, or just a guy who really likes to make music?

Those nicks are getting long :P

And I used to mix songs and still remix some but I now almost only make my own music.

Okay, Mr. K. :P

*Dudeman313 calls upon Thorii for protection
Title: Re: 100 topics per page instead of 50
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on May 26, 2016, 02:55:55 am
I don't think Thorii exists. In our case, Zampy would serve that purpose. But back on topic, I hope the author of the Clone Topic mode doesn't have too many issues fixing the bug. >.<
Title: Re: 100 topics per page instead of 50
Post by: Dudeman313 on May 29, 2016, 02:26:11 am
But...Thorii is in my signature...he's as real as el partido!

Also, who's Zampy?? And yeah, hopefully that goes well.

Post by: DJ Omnimaga on May 30, 2016, 02:09:57 am
Oh right, I forgot about that one. :P Zampy is the main character in alexgt's contest entry last December (although it never got finished)


Still no word from the author about the bug. I'm thinking this one is quite a challenge to fix >.< (I hope it's not due to our database, tho)
Title: Re: 100 topics per page instead of 50
Post by: Dudeman313 on June 07, 2016, 11:56:28 pm
Yeah, hopefully not. Would that be a pain to fix if it was?
Title: Re: 100 topics per page instead of 50
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on June 08, 2016, 05:47:35 am
Most likely. I hope we wouldn't need to remove all clones then re-add them manually >.<

Yeah, that would suck...
