Re: Welcome to the updated VOGONS

in Milliways
a website overloading the default system mouse cursor strikes me as a feature on par with background MIDI and spinning wordart gifs but tbh I didn't even notice it until people got all fired up about it, so I don't actually care I personally don't care either, but I can understand how it would make …

Re: Preventing bad caps

Just received and repaired a KT7A (using a kit from badcaps.net). Strangely all the JACKCON were completely fine, however there were a bunch of "JPCON" that went bad. I changed them all just in case. The board is not fully working, even after the repair. In particular the keyboard PS/2 port and the …

Re: Why don’t PC parts work in a Mac ?

Apple's hardware is nothing special. It is just run-of-the-mill PC hardware. OSX is also just a custom version of Linux. They just choose to support a very limited range of hardware. Sorry to nitpick, but MacOS (aka OS X) is not based on the Linux kernel. It may contain though some GNU tools such …

At least on Linux, web browsers don’t respect the system font antialiasing settings, in my experience. In Debian 10, this is what I do to get back a familiar experience of pixel-aligned fonts in all applications, including browsers: - add FREETYPE_PROPERTIES=truetype:interpreter-version=35 to /etc/ …

So essentially, it's too complicated and not worth the effort. I know theming in CSS can be a donating task to undertake on the surface but I have a hard time believing that when others have made their own changes with nothing more then a few lines of code. As Snover explained above, I believe him …

It still seems to me that the simple solution here is to add some extra themes that people can choose from in their global settings once logged in. "Flat Style" is a great looking modern theme. ProSilver for retro. Adding more themes is NOT a simple solution, Snover explained this already. This is …

Snover already replied in this thread or another why more themes are not feasibly. That's too bad. High-contrast themes such as black on white or light grey on black can be really useful for people with visual disabilities. Do you have such a disability and aren't there other ways to fix that on …

I can't login to the site with Firefox 38.8. It says "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again" even though the login/password is correct (had no such problem with the old site). I even allowed vogons.org to execute in NoScript but to no avail. I don’t know why that would be happening. …

Suggestion: Either choose a background color scheme that is more comfortable and friendly to the users, or how about making the background color a user choice? With the old (and new) vogons site I use a Firefox extension call "Toggle Darkmode" that provides black text on white background by default …

Re: New forum suggestions/Feedback

I have vision issues and purple color does not do well with my eyesight. If there was a mobile app around for this, that'd be great, even adding a theme to change between the old site and new one. I'd personally like to have two more color themes available: - black on white (useful in sunlight) - …

Re: Welcome to the updated VOGONS

OK, I added this link for logged out users. It’s always named “new posts” to try to reduce confusion (i.e. “why is this suddenly gone?” when logged in), following the logic that they’re both new posts lists and it just happens to be more tailored when you are logged in because the system has better …
