Not sure if this is the right thread to post this, but spoilers don't expand when clicking "show" anymore. Does anyone else have the same problem, or is it somehow only happening for me?
This has already been pointed out and the mods are already working on it (or at least they said they were).

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

I've been getting my 2003 look kick by browsing the ZBB (I'm not a user there). I think on a purely aesthetic level, I prefer the new one, but neither the new nor the old look particularly great. Just needs a dark theme though and I'm sorted.

Somewhat. You are limited to like a 20kb image file. If you know a better way to drop file size, I'm open to it and I can try on the unaltered images, which I think I still have. Huh. I was able to upload a PNG for my avatar. I just made it at the size it was needed, exported as a PNG, and it just ...

Today.

I'm still looking for divisions of semantic space that aren't between nouns and verbs. Isoraķatheð had one based on time and space, but I don't want to blatantly rip off that system.
That looks really pretty. Is it LaTeX? Or just far too long fiddling with a word processor?

Re: Language 8 (or somewhere near 8)

I've modified the Phonology, Orthography, Phonotactics entry with allophony replacing the distinction between plosives with no audible release, syllabic nasals, and the variations on / l /. I've also added the allophony rules at the end and updated the phonetic group numbers which are proving wonder...

As for the brightness, I'm wondering if this isn't just a question of habit, or perhaps what site you've just been looking at just before? The current background color for forum posts isn't brighter than say, Facebook or Wikipedia. It's a combination of that and a dislike for the bright themes. I a...

I think with some adjustments, it could look pretty good. What I think are the immediate issues are that the spoilers don't work, and it's blindingly bright. We need a dark theme that we can swap to from the user control panel.
