      Welcome, everyone, to the new 910CMX Community Forums. I'm still working on getting them running, so things may change.  If you're a 910 Comic creator and need your forum recreated, let me know and I'll get on it right away.  I'll do my best to make this new place as fun as the last one!

  1. EGS Strip Slaying

    Strip Slays: remixed comic strips, often humourous. Mine: http://imgur.com/a/xmqPE, plus one derived from a pinup: http://imgur.com/yR3R3Hx (debatable extent of SFW). Whle I have a number of other ones saved, I have not kept around the attributions ...
  2. EGS Strip Slaying

    Inflammable means able to be inflamed (in the sense of set on fire), which is in turn taken more or less straight from Latin. Problem is that the Latin prefix in has two different meanings, so we're talking about the other one here.
  3. This Day In History

    It's… slightly more complicated than that, but yes.
  4. We Begin Anew!

    @Thom Revor @Robin I've been contacted by someone who is attempting to sign up for the forums but is unable to, giving this screencap, suggestive of a CAPCHA API which is no longer operational: Could this be looked into?
  5. Things That Make You Happy

    Milometer is the term I've usually heard. ‘Course, that's in England, not the continent.
  6. Word of Dan

    Don't think so. The only one of the Greasemonkey scripts I'm running at the moment is the stylesheet patch, which doesn't affect the HTML tree, only the CSS / how it's rendered. Yet it happened for me too. Evidently something's trying to avoid making you reload the entire page upon submit by dynamically inserting your post into the page after you hit Submit, and it isn't working properly.

  8. Story Friday March 23 2018

    Following the forum and linking from OPs is one way of following the comic, yes.
  9. Things you have no idea how to feel about

    Or safe dosage of para‑acetaminophenol, for that matter?
  10. First Post Wins

    Questionable, given the newel post and the postage I already posted.
  11. Last Post Wins

    'Tis a mighty burden to create the successor to one of the longest-running threads on the deceased forum, but I might be up to the commencement.

    It didn’t.
  14. Edit: I've just realised how confusing this initial post must have been to people just coming in here from the sticky. So, here we go: These are some scripts provided in the hope of improving (more precisely, in the spirit of "fixing") your forum experience. I have no affiliation with the forum's root admins; I am not selling any of this: I do not guarantee safety, fitness or anything else. To do any of this you need one of the addons Greasemonkey or Tampermonkey, or a compatible equivalent, installed. Greasemonkey currently works on Seamonkey and on Firefox ESR. Tampermonkey currently works on Firefox Quantum, Chromium and Chrome. Firstly, I strongly recommend that you install my interface fixes, which is likely to fix any grievances or glitches you have with the default stylesheet and theming. Secondly, if you wish to have a larger range of emotes available, I have written another script to do that. When this was written, the forum emotes were broken: this is no longer the case but I've kept the script around for anyone who likes the greater choice of emotes or prefers the twemoji images. Note that this does not come with a selector, all input is by colon codes. Current version.

    Wasn't implying it would be, apologies if it came across that way.

    Hmmmm… what happens if Sirleck touches the Diamond?
  17. Greasemonkey forum scripts

    @ProfessorTomoe The script itself is fine. Greasemonkey for Quantum is currently a work in progress. Meanwhile, the Greasemonkey alternative Tampermonkey, which I had already been using for these scripts on Chromium, is apparently operational on Quantum. It is closed-source, so not suitable for Stallmanist purists, but should otherwise be fine, and is what I'd recommend at least for the time being.
  18. EPUB is a collection of various XML formats plus CSS and assets in a ZIP, the text itself is in XHTML (XML-serialised HTML). A couple things in the archive must be stored first in a specific manner/order, the rest is in arbitrary order. The Kindle format is complicated by multiple versions (the MOBI format descends from PRC, AZW from MOBI, the AZW3/KF8 format doesn't but attaches as an extra record to a stub or duplicate of the text in AZW format, and I haven't the foggiest about AZW8/KFX). However, I gather the KF8 and EPUB formats to differ mainly in their container format (i.e. a AZW3 is not a ZIP).
  19. (Originally posted link.) Latest version (Click "Raw" to install). Edit: For now, use Tampermonkey for Firefox Quantum. Notes: Edit: you might need to specifically enable the script following installation. This is CSS-based. It is minimally wrapped for Greasemonkey (edit: or Tampermonkey) use but this could easily be removed leaving a CSS file. Instructions in a comment. This is only intended for the desktop site. I don't know what it would do to the mobile site. Mobile should work now, using e.g. Tampermonkey for Android. As well as fixing things which are visibly broken, this custom stylesheet is partially influenced by pre-crash styling (drawn from the Wayback Machine) in aspects where I feel the interface never re-achieved its former merit. Aspects which are better post-crash have been retained. This incorporates the white-text editor fix. There should be no need to install both. If the site changes so as to break this custom styling, disable/remove it. Edit: I should probably mention that I have not exhaustively tested the effects of this, but they seem good so far.

  20. Greasemonkey forum scripts

    Not directly relevant to the emoji script but since this is the pinned thread, I thought I'd mention that I have updated my styling fixes in response to the recent upgrade. Post in the particular thread:

  22. Story Wednesday July 5, 2017

    To elaborate on the above for those unaware: when you log in to a site, what actually happens is that you get assigned a "session cookie", which basically contains an authorisation token which the site generated and will accept as ID for a specific user. This is instead of having to type your username and password every time you want to comment or change any preference. It will still require your password if you want to change your password, but that's to stop people who might access your computer or otherwise obtain use of your session cookie (e.g. via spyware) from then changing your password to something they know and you don't.

    Wouldn't that be peanut butter?
  24. Greasemonkey forum scripts

    Say if I type a : followed by a D and press Space I get a forum emote, because the current version of the script doesn't override the forum emotes unless told otherwise. Now, say that I do the same, but click "editor" in that box after I'm finished.
