This is a test of the spoiler feature.

Select to view spoiler:


Someone will die in Firefly at mid-season.



This is only a test, but I think the spoiler is real.

Might as well test the tweaked quote.

This is a reply and the spoiler should carry through.

That spoiler thing is too cool!

Bows in awe of Haken's coding abilities.
I'm a graphic designer, but I've never gotten too much into the tech side of the designing to much, just the graphics. I taught myself how to code HTML and a little java and that's it. I'm impressed.

Oops! When you reply a message you get the post in 'original format' in the ORIGINAL POST box - so I can see the spoiler in plain text below.

I don't think you want that do you?

Actually a 'preview' button would be nice. I know you can edit a post - but there's a chance someone might have seen it by then if you made a mistake.

It's coming along great though - appreciate the work you've put in - really do.

That is interesting. If I "reply with quote", I can see Shamus' spoiler text, but I can't see it when I highlight it in the regular message. Of course, Mac does do some things differently with respect to color. Of course, my post is IN the spoiler and it shouldn't be.

Now to test one one other little thing.

Does the spoiler thing work for you? Since I don't have access to a MAC, I really have no idea what this site looks like on a Mac.

Hi, y'all! Thought I'd drop in here if you don't mind.

I'm running Mac OS X, and your tests all worked fine, but Shamus' just turned into a "Highlight with mouse to view spoilers" and one bar.

By the way, if you ask me (which, granted, you didn't), the site looks perfectly lovely on a Mac.

So you wrote all the BBS software yourself? Impressive.

But can we lighten up up on the effects? Italics don't need to be a special color.

God, I hope not. The first time he did it, "make the audience love the character, then kill them" was bold and original. But he's done it so many times now, it's lost its impact.

Yeah, wrote every single line of code that drives this baby. Really can't see paying money (which I have little of) for something that I can write myself.

As for the italics, it's a different color because of the stylesheet. I'll fix it at some point.

I totally disagree (seems like we'll be doing this a lot, Zicsoft ). It was ever Joss's intent to make his deaths bold and original. All of the deaths he has orchestrated (man... I make him sound like a hit-man!) have been vital to the plot. It was never his intention to make the audience close to the character and then kill them just to spite them. That's a pretty horrible thing to think, really...

And he's only really done it twice.

Well YABB is freeware:

http://www.yabbforum.com/

But it's a Perl/CGI thing, and you seem to be into ASP. Never mind.

What do you use for a message respository? Do you use XML at all?

It's not that I'm into ASP as opposed to Perl/CGI. And, in fact, some of the early codes for this site was written in Perl/PHP. It just so happens that the server that this site is hosted on doesn't support Perl and PHP, so I wrote everything in ASP instead.

I don't use XML to store content, but I do use it for something else (read below). All content on this site (except images) are stored on a SQL server, including the messages.

This baby has an n-tier architecture, which means that it'll scale very well (although no reason to).

As for XML, yeah, I've written some routines that'll allow me to syndicate, export, and even control certain things on this site using XML (like posting a news item, message, etc.).

Want FIREFLYFANS.NET news headlines to show up on your phone? Or better yet, access headlines through the use of VoiceXML. I can make that possible. Though, it's really beyond the scope of this website.

Besides, no one is going to take advantage of the XML stuff anyway. And those that do will probably just use RSS Monkey to process the XML instead of writing something of their own.

Anyway, don't want to bore you with all this tech stuff. I'm not much of a tech guy (I majored in English). I'm just a fanboy trying to build the best fansite I can, and this is what I came up with.
