Good; glad she's back. She's got ground to catch up on.

Just looked it up, apparently it's because .webp is not a universal standard, Apple is not supporting it in Safari pre-Big Sur. Websites are supposed to offer up .jpg as a backup, crappy websites only offer as .webp.

web browsers are supposed to work display the page - safari fails to do this far too often. I suspect it has more to do with the fact that webp is a google creation. But it's all over the internet - if you're going to use the internet, you need a browser that supports the internet as it is - not as it wants it to be.

I would agree with you, except for the fact that Flash was also all over the internet ... and we all know how that went. smiley12

Just because something is all over, doesn't mean it's desirable or preferable.

Childish behavior. Throw a tantrum, walk off from the forum after insulting a select few, then holding breath until he passes out, THEN resume normal routine the next day, plus some.

Hey, let's change the forum name to "Newt's MR Forum". That would probably satisfy a lot of folks here! RollingEyesSmiley5

Try it. "Ignore this user" isn't as robust as you may think.

You can hide messages, true, but you cannot hide subjects on the main page. If you could do that, it would be great.

That's what I thought too. Tee hee. Figures it's a Google creation.

As for hiding subjects and/or whole users, the way I look at it is -- nobody is forcing anyone to read anything they don't want to. There are a whole host of topics/subjects on the main page that I have no interest in reading... not that they might not appeal to someone out there, as of course they might, since everyone's interests are different ... and that's actually a GOOD thing, it makes this place interesting. Nobody is forcing me to read anything, to reply to anything, etc. And if I truly find someone / something annoying, I ignore it. If someone / something is outright offensive, then it should get reported ... but I'm also mindful of the possibilities that the person may not be aware of or intending it to be so. Worst case scenario, if it gets too stressful, I highly recommend kittens. This is currently my fave: [www.youtube.com]

No, because for me, the sexual double entendres are always welcome. After all, one can always use more buTTs and Böobs in one's life. boink smiley wiggle smiley Camera

Indeed.

I use Ignore and it helps — some.

But along with not hiding subject lines, it also doesn't hide annoying content that's quoted.

And I suspect that's not within the capabilities of the Phorum software.

However, I appreciated the feature nonetheless.

I'm all for clever, risqué humor, but that combination is pretty rare here, and it does seem to alienate the participation of the better demographic of MRFers.

So I never expect the purile stuff to fare any better.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Juvenile behavior needs to be disciplined. For some reason long-time forum members seem to get a pass more often than not. If this was a new forum member spamming the forum with numerous clickbait subject headlines and little to no interest, it would not be tolerated. 18-20 new topics in an hour? Make no mistake, this is a blatant F-U to everyone here.

Classic click-bait spam stats. Compare the View count with any actual involvement in the threads. 0%-1%.

There was a recent thread about the cause of declining participation in the forum. Not forum membership, but constructive forum participation. Let's start here.

Apparently it also depends on which rule book an admin refers to.

Maybe.

I don't really know all the rules, and when Admin tries to keep it simple, I'm sure it's tough to have rules for every single aspect or potential aspect of participation.

But we are guests here, and whether we like it or not, or whether the Posting Overlords favor us or not, we are still merely guests in someone else's house, and it behooves us to behave as such.

I try not to push my luck in that regard, really I do, and really have no complaints about any 'parenting' admins have done.

Even if I did, it's still not my house.

.....I'm pretty sure that 'gang bullying' is 'juvenile' behavior.....piling onto someone because they do not adhere to your standards when out with middle ages......

....you should just stone me or put an Scarlet A on my chest......

.....I have never insulted or put down anyone and yet everyone here would call me 'juvenile' names to make themselves feel better......


......the ones complaining the loudest are all hypocrites and I doubt that you would behave that way 'in real life' and yet it is ok. to put someone down 'virtually' with total anonymity......you are all hypocrites.....when you were getting 'free samples and deals' it was all well and good but now that those have dried up.....you are asking yourself what you get out of it......self servicing entitled 'Karens'.......complaining about things that have never hurt you in any real way......
