SELINK 2: steele's booty too.

quote [ This tag is used to post videos. By inserting the url of the video's page. iow the link to the youtube page it will automatically retrieve the video details and embed the video in a spoiler box. ]

So, the SELINK tag broke a month or so ago because youtube changed the way their opengraph tags were setup. I think I've fixed all that, but in addition I've been able to update the OpenGraph scraper code that both the Prep Post and SELINK uses. So now you can pretty much use SELINK for whatevs.

Examples in extended.

Also, the post prep should be a lot more accurate in automatically grabbing thumbnails and things from problematic news sites like wired, the guardian, nytimes, etc. Not perfect but better. :D

Happy 7th SE-versary!

quote [ So, I chose Sensible Endowment because this site is basically an inheritance of the old community, it's also run primarily by donations, and, most of all, to be well endowed is to have large genitalia ;) ]

Wow. So, it's a been a bit of a year, huh?

Hopefully you have your passwords or your email account is up to date. If you can't get back in, email sensibleendowment at gmail and with your credit card and social security we'll verify your account and get you back in.

SE News 2019-08-08

Just a couple of things. About a month ago I got a report from one of our users that an email they only used for SE has started receiving spam. I've been going through the logs since then and haven't seen anything indicating that we've been hacked, but it's also not impossible. Now SE doesn't store your passwords in plaintext, they're salted and hashed. The only thing they really could have gotten is your email address, browsing data, who owns what socks, etc. (aka, my retirement plan for when I sell out to facebook.) If you use your SE password for any other sites (Which you really shouldn't.) you should still probably change them.

Also, I've been doing a bit of updates on the consequences of low karma for dealing with spams and trolls. So the new karma rules (subject to change as I flesh them out) are that you need greater than -5 points to comment, 15 points to mod, and 30 points to post. Negative Karma regenerates, and 15 and 30 are more than easy enough to attain for someone that takes part in the community, in my opinion. I was also working on a captcha for low karma accounts, but things went south on that. So it's been put on hold for a bit.

Hope y'all are doing well. I'm so freaking hot, I think Florida may be on fire again.

Nothing is wrong!

Everything is A-O-K! Except for that little beta issue I'm working on. But other than that we're totally fine! I totally didn't accidentally upgrade my secondary host before remembering to upgrade certain outdated subscriber management scripts. But if I did, and the patches I made didn't work, I would want you to let me know if your subscription suddenly disappeared tomorrow. Okay? Not that that's what's going to happen, but you can talk to me about that sort of thing. We're cool like that, right? You know, when I was your age, my subscription benefits used to disappear all the time. It's totally a normal thing and nothing to be ashamed of. You're just at that age where everything is new and exciting, and sometimes software bugs happen. Alright, champ? We good? I'm glad we had this talk.

Oh, and use your mods every once in a while. They miss you.

Broken Beta

Something is wrong with the beta. I've got it so you can still see the entries, but for some strange reason, commenting isn't working right. I don't know why. I'm working on it. It may take a week or so to figure out a solution or a workaround. I know there's only a few handfuls of you that use it, but just for you to be aware, I am aware.

I've re-enabled one time payments for subscriber features. So if you've been waiting on that, they're live again. #GimmeGimmeMyMoneyMoneyMoney ;)
