Title: RE: FYI - Possibly Important
<div class="bbcode bbcode_quote">*nod*

If it were just that I'd be fine with it, but yeah, had a lot of concern
random people were coming up to me with "massive exploit" and stating
that sort of things to random people. Stuff like that shouldn't have
gotten public.

I did have some idea as to how the API could be used for good purposes though (e.g. mailing lists).</div>

So did I, but taking those ideas further requires that notes be
deletable entities, as not to uncontrollably bloat the database further.

Spoof notes? Yes, the api allows this by design. This is a trust based thing, and a bit of trap if you might call it that.

Everything is being logged and uncovering if somebody has been abusing
the functionality given to them is pretty easy, so if that somebody
actually does this they can be publicly blasted for betraying said

Reading other people's notes however is not something possible through
that API. I would be mad if I coded something like that for third party

Having said that, looks like Jurann is feeling a bit too proud of
himself for whatever reason. net-cat talked to me, and we're keeping the
API disabled until I remove the "from" parameter and lock account IDs
per each IP the access is being made from.

<div class="bbcode bbcode_quote">Yak, got this message per somebody completely not in the know...

<strong class="bbcode bbcode_b">The Cantankerous Delight:</strong> But
Jurann has apparently made it clear that the super sekrit access you or
someone else has given him with FA allows him to spoof notes from other
people to others, and has made it clear he can read other peoples notes.

<strong class="bbcode bbcode_b">The Cantankerous Delight:</strong> Of course, he has a history of rewriting a lot of facts in his head.. Jurann speaking of.</div>

Title: Hey
Heya, got an artist here wanting to do a monthly banner. Their art
seems nice and quality product. Thought you might need to know.

<div class="bbcode bbcode_quote"><span>qzurr wrote:</span>Hellou! ^^

Thank you very much Yak!


<div class="bbcode bbcode_quote"><span>yak wrote:</span>Sorry for replying that late.

Dragoneer handles the monthly banners, not I. But as far as I know it's
an invitation-only procedure; and of course, there's a entry barrier on
the level of quality.

Your art certainly passes the quality test, so I can tell him you're willing, if you like.</div>

<div class="bbcode bbcode_quote"><span>qzurr wrote:</span>Hello Yak! ^^

I hope I don't waste your time! ^^

How can I do Fa banner? :3

How works? Just popular artist can draw it? Or we must pay for that they put it?

Thanks! ^^

Hi. I've been a member for ages but wanted to know if we could set up an
add for my website. I in turn, would donate 10% of the sales from the
add to FA. You can find my site at Please have a look and
let me know what you think.

Title: RE: monitor
Okay, it appears it's a very controversial monitor. Some people are
extremely pleased with it, others - a more demanding kind - can't live
with it's input lag and color presentation. And there are very little
people on the middle ground. Guess you're just going to have to try it
out yourself and see.

Oh, and if you do, here are the calibrator's settings:

Contrast 72:

Red - 91

Green - 84

Blue - 90

Title: RE: "Missing Submission"
<div class="bbcode bbcode_quote">

This gets an internal server 500 error. Any ideas?</div>

Corrupted flash file causing a PHP core dump when it tries to read it's
width and height. And those are needed, because they are used to set
them correctly when embedding the object on the page.

Strange this is that people seem to have been able to see the
submission for some time and comment on it, before it got corrupted.
Second time this is happening, to my knowledge.

Someone has to reupload the file to fix it.

Title: RE: Journal Problem
<div class="bbcode bbcode_quote">

The "new journal" area is aligning on to the "middle" (instead of
vertically) for me and a lot of users. If you have a lot of journals
this puts the text box several pages down, makes it look like the
journal box has vanished.</div>

Hah, so this is what 'the journal' problem means.

I've had a few people report it but none of them could describe the
problem properly. And myself, not having that much journals, of course
could not recreate it.

It's a 2 minute fix, consider it done.

No matter what I try to do to send a user a password reset using the FA

isn't associated... BUT I've verified it's good and and corrected.</div>


I'll fix it shortly.

<div class="bbcode bbcode_quote">

Opinions on this? I think this is way, way in violation of what the color tag was meant for.</div>

Well it sucks, takes about 0.4 seconds of server time to parse this crap into HTML. Pure CPU time, nothing more.

But aside from sucking, it's really not a problem unless it becomes a meme of epidemic proportions. Not much impact here.

It's abuse, yes, but can be countered with polite|stern warning not to, I believe, on a case-by-case basis.
