Reinstate the paging link for list of users.

I can only see the first page of the list.

Anonymous posts need to be civil if you want them to remain.

another test of an anonymous comment

Looks good to me. I do like that you made it a longer number. I don't want to be biased out of the gate with anonymous users . So if the number is longer and harder to remember I think that's good if you're looking for more users, even if they don't register. But if someone is being an ass, there's at least some identifier to know, especially if it's spam.

We'll find out tonight when the "oil" starts getting slick. Or they may legitimately be paid and have the weekends off. We'll see. We'll actually see if I'm here tonight. Got things to do.

patnet should support unicode characters like the rest of the modern web.

simply setting the following header on all textual pages will likely get you 99% of the way there:

content-type: text/html;charset=utf-8

Thanks! Don't know how I missed that.

Better now?

People complained about the post titles being links to the external stories, so I put it back.

Now the main title is the patrick.net link once again. The (domainname.com) part after the title is the link to the external story.

@Patrick

It appears you can no longer see anything but the last 40 comments in a thread. You used to have a link to see (say) comments 1-90 in a 130 comment thread, but now it's gone.

Get some ad revenue. We all ignore ads on other sites. You should make some money from your work here.

Somebody would love this demographic. Maybe the company that makes freeze dried yams?

Any chance you can add how many people are on the site, regardless if they are registered or not? I like how you have the users that are online, but how about "guests" like a lot of other forums do? I don't know if there are only 3 "guests" or anons viewing the site at anytime or 300, but usually it shows something like 3-8 registered users online. That's not a good look.

I'm thinking a lot of people that could become active may be turned off by the low numbers that are clearly visible at the top of the page. Even if there are only 3-5 registered members online, but another 30 anons viewing the page, that might be motivation for someone to become active or post. I think I may have posted this in another thread (or even this one) but it would be nice to know the audience size a new post might be able to reach.

Nope just me1-69, Patrick offered me 72 virgins if I could keep the site going through the weekend. Naturally I accepted.

@patrick, speaking of broken. The ability to Edit a post is broken again. This is the error that comes up.

@Patrick - Minor suggestion. If it's hard or not worth it, just ignore it.

Comment and thread times for people in other time zones is a bit weird. I just commented in the bitcoin thread and it says it's 5am or whatever. It's 7 am where I'm at. If you posted at that time, it actually is 5am if you're in CA at that time. I'm not sure what this actually improves, but it's just weird to not know what time people may actually be posting.

I know nothing about this stuff, but I assume it would have to be a user adjusted setting, right? They select their timezone from a drop down or whatever? For reasons I can't explain I'd like it as a feature, but as I said, if it's a pain don't worry.

What the hell happened Patrick?

I suppose this is your true colors or you wouldn't allow all this crap on here. It's shocking, really. And sad.

I came here for the housing news initially. It was so vibrant then. And now it's like a cesspool of misogynistic and racist cretins.

All I can say is good luck with promoting your backward and hateful ideas. And Adios Amigos!

Here's my two cents. The day calling someone a liar became abuse and those posts got deleted was the day the site was finished. When you have a group like the alt-right which can't even write a reply without lying, it eliminates all discussion and all that is left is a mountain of bullshit. People don't want to read bullshit all day long so they stopped reading patrick.net.


And TPB/Captain was never called to be banned by those who flounced (and often return anonymously) precisely for "Personal Attacks" that were "Ruining the Forum".

Toddthebod says
Calling out a liar is always ad hominem. Therefore now this place only appeals to liars. Clear enough?


Nope, calling out a liar and proving proof that poster lied is NOT ad hom. Sadly, you left wingers just can't handle the truth, and when called out on BS, play the Ad Hom card.

It's when you left wingers call someone a liar, but don't provide any substance, does it become Ad Hom. A certain feathered animal was an expert at that.

@WookieMan I've been planning to let users set their own time zone. Maybe I can get that done today.

OK, it's done. Now if you edit your profile on https://patrick.net/edit_profile you have the option to choose one of the main four timezones of the US.

Please let me know if it doesn't work.
