Can’t even begin to imagine all the watch lists we’re on now! \o/

Well, the issues are gone now but there are some new instead. Will post pictures later when I get home.

Edit: Here and here are the pictures, this time without Ninja-GIMP-editing.

I think the smaller font and picture sizes from before were better. They were perfect sized for reading (at least for me) without the need of scrolling constantly.

Thanks.

Thanks. The mobile version of the design will be tweaked further. The fonts are now larger for you because I’m using a viewport set to your device’s nominal pixel width, instead of a fixed value set by me (which was causing the font problems, frustratingly.) I admin I haven’t tested the design with enough mobile devices yet, most notably my trusty old iPhone. I’ll catch up with that soon.

Two little styling-related problems on iPhone Safari:

Here should be a self-explanatory picture.

(Sorry for being too dumb to draw arrows, but issues should be obvious)

This has now been fixed.

This has now been fixed. It was being cause by the viewport meta tag. I had set it to a static pixel value which must have confused the mobile browsers somewhat.

Why is #pants so darn hard to install?

Why is #pants so darn hard to install? Why is there almost no documentation?

It might seem absurd to build a distributed open-source social publishing tool that comes with pretty much no documentation whatsoever and leave it to its users to figure out how to not only set up the code, but also get their instance started in the database.

There is a very simple reason for this: it’s just too early. The first commit was created on June 20, 2014, which at the time of writing this is a mere 25 days ago. Nothing of what you’re seeing (or using) today existed a month ago.

Making it easier to install this thing on your own server will be a priority, even if so far it hasn’t been. Encouraging people to install software that simply wasn’t ready yet, possibly having to bug them about updating their site pretty please because I’ve changed stuff around in the protocol, would have slowed the entire project down to a messy halt pretty quickly.

I’m impressed that there are people out there who wouldn’t even let all of that stop them from installing #pants, and I’m happy if you want to have a go at it, but please prepare yourself for a bit of a rough ride. It’ll get better.

I’d say the right format would be @ followed by a valid domain name, wouldn’t it? And personally, I’d stick with the @ prefix instead of anything other randomly picked sign.

Yeah, it’s probably the most straight-forward syntax.

Yeah, it’s probably the most straight-forward syntax. The only reason I’m hesitating is that what you’re posting is a link, so I’m thinking it should be closer to the existing link syntax. I’ll give it some more thought, but things are looking good for @domain.

@pants.social: the @ notation to address someone is broken and/or not implemented yet, right? The string @example.com should turn into a link to http://example.com after posting, methinks.

Yeah, this hasn’t been implemented yet, but it’s kind of an obvious feature, I guess.

Yeah, this hasn’t been implemented yet, but it’s kind of an obvious feature, I guess. I’ll give it a little bit of thought as I’m not sure about the syntax.

@pants.social: I think the sorting of comments/replies to a blurb should be chronologically ascending, not descending — I’d prefer “oldest first” over “newest first”.

Also: what about replying to replies? Are there plans to make that possible at some point?

Absolutely!

Absolutely! I’m currently reworking the entire way posts that reference other posts are being rendered (which is why you will be seeing a weird mix of “Replies” and “Replies on the Web” for a while), so expect some improvements and new stuff there.

I think Doctor Who works best if you don’t try to watch it was comedy or as a SciFi show. It combines all of the above, but it is mostly about the Doctor himself and his interactions with the other characters. It is also often very, very silly and you should be able to digest a healthy amount of camp.

I think the new Doctor played by Peter Capaldi could appear to people looking for a more serious take.

Anyway, it is SOOOO GOOOD!

What kills Doctor Who for me is how overloaded and intense pretty much every minute of every episode is.

What kills Doctor Who for me is how overloaded and intense pretty much every minute of every episode is. Everything is super dramatic and important, with almost no ebb and flow to any of it. I’ve tried getting into the whole thing so often, but… it’s just too much for me.

Transistor, by the people who brought us the wonderful Bastion. Worth it?

Reviews have been mixed, but more importantly, I so need to fix the styling of those referenced URLs. :-P
