So -- here's a weird Vanilla thing

I've noticed something odd about this forum the last few days... I wanted to flag it as (IMO) an issue, although I suspect it's just the aftermath of a s/w update ('continuous improvement' and all that...).

Preface: I don't know if many other folks do this, but I usually use the "Recent Discussions" view to look at... umm... recent discussions. This view has always had issues, but now it has a new one. Historically, any thread with a "new" post to it would be flagged -- but "new" meant one added by another poster, not the person looking at the "Recent Discussions".

Recently (heh), I have noticed that threads to which I have 'recently' posted show a new post flag, but the only new post is mine. This doesn't add a lot of value. In fact, it subtracts value, 'cause I'll click on a thread and see my own stupid drivel at the 'end' of the thread! ;)

That didn't use [or is that used?] to happen.
Does anyone know why this may have occurred and (more to the point) if it can be fixed?
@AlmaGarcia or @KennethSwauger perhaps?

See screenshot below :)

Thanks!

  • I noticed that recently as well. Also if you check your own thread for comments it shouldn't increase the # of views for the thread, which is another bug in the software.

    As a reminder, Mark, you will still be required to use italics when referring to song titles, or other creative works :po:)

    I do not find any problems with your use of italic font on phone/mobile as 95% if my time here is in the mobile site.

    Bud has gotten a little cantankerous in his retirement.

    And yes completely agree that the vanilla site has been in constant flux of messed up for months now.

    I don’t mind italics for phone numbers, or for song titles. My issue is when they are used indiscriminately throughout text for no apparent reason. They hurt my eyes using the iPad Mini. :)

    Also, I don’t believe in ignore lists.

    Your use of the word "anymore" here doesn't make sense. It should only be used in a negative context, such as: "I don't like you anymore." Also, it should never be used at the beginning of a sentence, such as: "Anymore I like pizza" or even "Anymore I don't like pizza."

    Anyone that does this should be shot in the neck.

    You are the weakest grammar **** I know.

    BTW:

    an·y·more
    /ˌenēˈmôr/

    adverb
    to any further extent; any longer.
    "she refused to listen anymore" <-- same usage from Webster's.

    To say that "...people are a bunch of pansies anymore" is to say that they can't be a greater pansy than they are now. They have reached the furthest extent of being a pansy. To which I will likely be shown the folly of my statement as someone, somewhere will be a greater pansy beyond the current extent that we are witnessing and thereby proving my statement inaccurate.

    I must be the only grammar asterisk you know, then.

    ... and borrowed terms from other languages, of course. I shall consult my Manual of Style to ensure I don't botch up any ad hoc italic applications.

    Thanks for the reminder! B)

    I have a friend who uses "anymore" similarly as above. He's the human equivalent of a big slobbery yellow lab, so I don't have the heart to say anything about it, and just pat him on the head and let him hang his head out the window.
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    I have found the closer one gets to Cuba, the more prevalent this is. :o

    Now, the whole "The floor needs mopped" silliness, as opposed to "The floor needs to be mopped" or "The floor needs mopping", I find tends to be concentrated around West Virginia and southwestern Pennsylvania.....anymore. :p
