You should not notice all that much, maybe a few things will be slightly different, or broken!

Please tell me about broken things: p@patrick.net

Even better, if you know how to fix the broken things, send me a pull request! The source code is all at https://github.com/killelea/node.patrick.net

No you are not.

Not yet. Just got to get the node version to an acceptable state first.

errc says

So what is this new format?

What changes will we notice

Hopefully very little at first. Comments will be posted without a page reload. Login will happen similarly. Should feel faster.

OK, I fixed all the bugs found so far and re-deployed the node version.

So that's what we're all using right now.

I expect something else to be borken (as they say) so please write here and let me know if you find a bug.

Tell me more about this bug.

When I post a new comment, it looks OK to me. It doesn't have a comment number, but other than that seems fine.

What do you see? Can you post a screenshot?

1. Read any thread.
2. Post a comment to that thread.
3. Return to patrick.net/
4. The thread where you just posted a comment will be marked "new comments" even though you just read it, including the comment you posted.

When I read a thread like this one and I get to comment #40, you give me two options

Next>>> which takes me back to post 8, but on a new page where I can scroll down to comment #41

Or

Last>>>>> which takes me to the last comment in the thread

How about an option that takes me to the next comment, in this instance, #41?
48   Dan8267   ignore (3)   2017 Aug 22, 6:43pm   ↑ like (0)   ↓ dislike (0)   quote   flag        

@Patrick, you should set up URL forwarding rules on the new site so that the old URLs to threads will go to the URLs used by the new site. For example, the path for the Funny Pictures thread on the old site was /1200568/2011-12-09-funny-picture-thread whereas the path on the new site is /post/1200568/funny-picture-thread. Your URL redirection should include the HTTP code for permanent redirect.

Doing this will have several advantages. First internal and external links won't break. Second Google will update its model of your site, keeping your page ranking high. Google does not like broken links. Third, the Google search results won't take users to an error page. Most users will simply close a tab if an error page is shown.
49   Patrick   ignore (1)   2017 Aug 22, 6:52pm   ↑ like (0)   ↓ dislike (0)   quote   flag        

Yes, also need to do that.

errc says

The tricky bit there is that I always want a full page of comments (40 comments) to appear, not just one or a few comments. So I do a bit of math to make the pages always start with a comment that will result in a filled page.

So in this case, the next page started with comment 8 so that the page contained the last 40 comments in the thread (8 to 47). The php site actually worked the same way.

Is there a better way to do that?

When I'm finished reading comment #40, and I hit next, and you jump me to a page with comments 8-47, is there any way to start me 80% down the page at comment #41?

Or do you expect me to do all the work and scroll down the page myself?

51   Patrick   ignore (1)   2017 Aug 22, 7:26pm   ↑ like (0)   ↓ dislike (0)   quote   flag        

I could have logic that says "if you were just on the previous page of comments, and it was not a full page since it was at the beginning, then go to the next unread comment on the next page".


OK, not that hard, on the list.

OK, the old site links work now. Not a redirection, just one line of code that adds in /post if the url starts with a number.
So we're back on node, and this link should work: https://patrick.net/1200568/2011-12-09-funny-picture-thread

It's the AltLefts fault

All of it

They've single handily ruined everything, while the rest of us sat around mean mugging our computer screens.

If only we could figure out how to defeat the AltLeft and the Media that they control, which is all of it, then us Great Americans can finally have our ideas heard. It will be heaven

More bugs.

https://patrick.net/users Cannot read property 'number_format' of undefined

Also, the ban list does not show on the user page. If the ban list is not working, get it up before the trolls take advantage of the bug.

Also, if ignore was implemented, the ignore list is not showing. If not, then some user comments are not being displayed or links to them within a post are not working. Example: https://patrick.net/post/1309217&offset=0#comment-1436424

You shouldn't be using a phone to connect to PatNet. It's just a front for the Dept. of Homeland Security to identify the kind of malcontent delusional fuck off that would engage in domestic terrorism. Do you not remember what happened to Call It Crazy? No one has seen or heard from him in months.

Damn. Just got burned on the switch back. 3 paragraphs on electric vehicles that I'll never get back on that AAA post. By the timing of your comment I probably missed it by 2 minutes. No biggie, but it was probably the best writing I've ever done.

This is far fetched I imagine. But is there anyway to display an icon for a post that is actively being commented on? More specifically, a user is typing in a response to a post or comment. Kind of similar to the iphone or other messenger services where you can tell the other person is typing. And maybe a gauge or something to show the response if multiple people are typing responses? Maybe show the number of people typing comments or a speedometer type gauge that goes up as more people are typing? This would be cool in a forum atmosphere like this, probably more effective with a bigger active user base, but I'm guessing it's far fetched as I mentioned.

Obviously a lot of comments on a post show activity. It would just be cool if in real time it showed who was in the act of responding. Could be dumb, but just checking to see if this chunk of shit I was throwing would stick to the wall.

That's actually a brilliant idea, and not all that hard with my newfound javascript skills!

I'll try to do it. But first, I'm bringing ignore back. Almost done with that.

Sorry about the loss of text, but I don't see how it happened. Why should you have lost anything due to the switch? The sites work almost the same. Back button didn't recover it?

Dan, sorry about the loss, but I don't see how it happened. Why should you have lost anything due to the switch? The sites work almost the same.

I could be wrong, but I think you thought my comment about about the lost comment was Dan (jesus, I've reread this 8 times and I don't know how to word it better). I was typing in a long response in the AAA post from earlier today, that I believe I started on the node version. When I clicked to finalize the post there was some error message about no thread or comment and all my text disappeared. I then came here and saw you said you where switching back because of bugs. So I assume my comment box was on the node version when I started typing and prior to finalizing you switched it back to the php version. I'm guessing I clicked post (or whatever it is) after you switched back to php and that's why the error message came up. No biggie, I ultimately got my wisdom out there in that thread.

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
