Well you don't have internet at home so this means your online activity is very sporadic on weekends. An example earlier is how you remained unreachable for hours following the time the exploit was discovered :P


Btw is the maintenance earlier the reason why the URL title bot stopped working earlier? bb010g posted two Youtube links and the bot didn't show the URL title as expected.

Juju

No idea, I blame EFNet. It's unrelated to whatever maintainance. I restarted her anyway.

Ah ok, I thought some features were shut down either intentionally or unintentionally for some reasons. Not sure for how long the bot has been down.

DJ Omnimaga

Bug report: When you change your forum timezone, WalrusIRC timezone remains GMT-5. Shouldn't it remain in sync with forum profile settings?

I think it probably takes your local time
Legends say if you spam more than DJ Omnimaga, you will become a walrus...


Juju

It have nothing to do with forum time, but with your system clock.

Oh right, that might explain it then. At least this means it will show the right time for other users too.

DJ Omnimaga

Ok so I found an issue with line backlog: If you type a line then press Enter, you know how you can go back through previously sent lines using the up and down arrows, right? Well, if you are typing a new line then press the down arrow at any point, you lose whatever you were typing. Just reload a page, try typing stuff then press the down arrow to see what I mean.


Another issue is that new post notifications don't always parse topic tags correctly with the tag  mod installed, so if for example the topic was called The Game [NSFW], then the bot will often omit [NSFW] from the title. Other times it might randomly work. Not sure if that's a WIRC or YukiBot bug, though.

DJ Omnimaga

New feature suggestion which could be very handy in the future:

-Reporting post edits. However, it should be done in a way that won't make people confuse edits with new posts. For example, they could look like this:

Walrified edit by DJ Omnimaga on Re: Pi day! http://codewalr.us/320/7069

Also make edits so that if the edit is on the last post of the topic and it has been over 24 hours since the topic was posted, then make the bot say this instead:

"DJ Omnimaga: Since it has been 24 hours since your last post in your topic, you should bump it instead of editing your last post so that it's easier to see in the recent posts list."

This would discourage project authors from just editing the last post over and over, resulting into their updates going unnoticed by people who have WalrusIRC disabled.

-Also make the logs show joins/parts or implement a !seen command to know when someone was last seen on IRC.

Ooooh I was about to ask for that feature. I feel like I miss so much stuff in edits.


DJ Omnimaga

Yeah my concern about that feature is the edit spam that can occur sometimes and people relying too much on post edits instead of bumping their topic for updates. Double-posting is allowed after 24 hours and you can do it earlier in your project topics if you have updates to add.

Juju

That's some ideas, most of them are for YukiBot or the board software itself, though.

Oh ok. Do you think the post edit notification feature would be hard to implement?

Juju

No idea but that would at least require checking through the SMF docs and code. I could ask on Omnimaga.

That could work. Maybe Soru knows, since he works on OmnomIRC.
