We’re Working On Stuff Today


Please be patient as we work on improving your user experience today. The site may go offline or into maintenance mode without warning. On the other side, we hope there will be less to complain about functionality-wise.

As you all do exquisitely on a regular basis, please use this space to tell us about all the technical aspects of our blog that suck! Thanks for your continued readership despite our many shortcomings.


UPDATE: We fixed our totally unscientific poll widget! Please vote.

    Wowza. An edit function.

    2. No more posting videos in comments? Or is that still a go to source , paste embed code thingy? Guess I’ll find out.


  7. mamajama55 says:

    #3 was a video clip. It seems video clips won’t post on either the original, or the edited comment.

  8. davebarnes says:

    Need longer than a 5 minute edit window.

    Five minutes is good for an obvious mispelling error. edit: misspelling

    Five minutes is way too short for people like me who add a comment and then go off to search for more relevant factoids/links to bolster the argument.

    City-Data fora have a 3-hour window.Bogleheads have a 3 month window.

    Are Moderatus’s comments still all going to suck???

    International Women’s Day video try 2:

    Video embedding appears to work now, on the original comment, but because I went back and edited the comment, the video disappeared. (as did the format icons). That’s OK….I can live with the idea that you get one go to post video, and you lose access to the “source” button on the second try.

    While you’re working on stuff, could you fix the sags and wrinkles of older age. And if I ever run for office again, could you make sure I win. Thanks!

    Everyone has done such a fantastic job I’m not even going to complain. Bravo!

    Umm, your site now shows up in really small type, even if I use full screen.  Your problem, or mine?
