The darker shade means there's a new message that you haven't read yet. I guess I've gotten enough comments on that so it should change...

I'll take a look but you might just need to edit your profile to fix it. Old TWHL never had proper support for non-english characters so there might be some issues when transferring over.

Beep. You might get double notifications because I've just added an auto-subscribe feature to forum threads, so if you subscribed before you'll have two active subscriptions. It's only a beta thing because I just added that feature.

@Dr. Orange, @Jessie
I think the notification system currently seems a bit odd. If there have been multiple posts on a single thread since you last visited it, it will count as multiple notifications instead of just one that shows how many posts there have been. Also, as I said earlier, I think it would be a good idea to make notifications link directly to the first new post since every post have an ID now.
Also, re notifications: Should multiple notifications for the same thread/poll/whatever only form one notification? Multiple notifications for one source seems redundant.
Thanks for the suggestions, I have made all these changes!

Some changes I am trying out. Better or worse? Obviously the header/nav thing, but also the border around the whole page and I changed the background colour on each second post. There would be multiple different images in the header, the one I picked was just a random one for testing purposes.

He wasn't happy with how bloated Opera had become
What do you mean your browser doesn't have half-implemented clients for email, IRC, RSS, Bittorrent, web hosting, and a web proxy?

@TJB: That deleting thing is because NTFS technically supports file paths longer than 256 characters but Microsoft doesn't implement support for it in most built-in apps for backwards compatibility reasons.

WinRar happily supports long paths and will create them when extracting archives but then explorer can't deal with them... which is a bit of a problem.

That's a problem with all Windows versions but they've added the ability in Windows 10 to support long paths, but you run the risk of breaking older software (but I doubt it).

In the registry set HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem\LongPathsEnabled to 1. But the WinRar deletion work-around is handy and I've used it before.

in delete google activity Post #337670
You need to be signed into a Google account (doesn't need Google+, any gmail account will do) and you can turn off the history from the account settings. It won't stop tracking you, but it will stop recommending you stuff based on what you've watched. You can "delete" watch/search history as well, but of course that doesn't mean much considering tracking you is how Google makes money.

I don't have any issue with your endeavour - I've seen way too many resource sites disappear and their content lost forever and that sucks. But I see a bit of a flaw in your argument:
I can't guarantee TWHL's continued existence, or Interlopers, or the SC forums. I can guarantee our own site.
By the same logic, I can't guarantee the continued existence of your site, but I can for TWHL. What makes your word more reliable than mine?

Microsoft just finished. Some new stuff, all looked fairly boring to me though. They're really trying to sell the XBONEX (I'm calling it Xboner), trying to pretend that it's not the exact same thing that Sony already did with the PS4 pro. Revolutionary and all that.

Might as well keep doing this!

E3 is happening! etc
User posted image
E3! Let's discuss!

Copypasta below:

What is E3?
The Electronic Entertainment Expo, known as E3, is an event that happens every year in Los Angeles. It's usually where the big companies announce new stuff (i.e. Microsoft, Sony, and to a lesser extent, Nintendo) like games, hardware, consoles, and really pretty much everything to do with games. Ubisoft and EA also make appearances, but interestingly enough, Activision do not (though they usually manage to get a Call of Duty trailer in there anyway).

Why is it cool?
If you're interested in gaming at all, E3 is the biggest dump of new information that happens every year. The keynotes almost always feature brand new trailers, gameplay, hardware, services, and of course, new games! It's always fun to hear new stuff to look forward to. E3 is focused on western gaming (Microsoft, Ubisoft, EA), but Nintendo and Sony usually inject some Japanese gaming influence in there as well, so there's always something interesting no matter what your gaming tastes are!

I'll post updates after each keynote with all the interesting stuff, but if you want to watch the conferences live, just visit any big gaming website (GameSpot, IGN, GameTrailers, etc) and find their E3 coverage.

Is anyone else excited about E3? Any predictions you would like to share? I'll be posting my own predictions before each keynote starts. I'm too lazy to post predictions.

PS: Before anyone suggests it: Half-Life 3 will NOT be announced this year. In fact, it will NEVER be announced at any E3, ever! (Though I would not mind if I was wrong about this)

End E3 copypasta

EA has already done their thing, but it was pretty crap unless you care about Battle[front|field].

And I'm actually building it into Sledge right now! More for my own sanity than anything else, because moving everything into plugins forces me to remove messy spaghetti code in the whole thing. But building plugins will be pretty easy in the next version of Sledge, and since all the bundled stuff will be plugins too, it should be fairly flexible.

Don't try to evangelise too hard though guys, it's one thing to mention that it exists but Sledge is (by far) not a solution to every problem. (yet?)
