This. It's the modern world blocking JavaScript and then complaining is like punching yourself in the cock then being angry at yourself for hurting yourself


It's the modern world, any privacy or security concerned individual should be greatly hesitant about allowing arbitrary code execution on their device from unknown sources :)

I'm only pointing out the change in behaviour in these situations, the raising of any and all issues should be welcomed, especially when it's a regression from current functionality. The subsequent prioritisation (and deciding what is and isn't a blocker to a migration) is separate to the current assessment where we're making note of all issues, so I don't think it's unreasonable at all to comment on things like non-js behaviour.

I especially don't think it's unreasonable to point out poor UX when javascript is blocked, where a workable solution is just as easy to implement. That's on the developer for not considering the non js use case. It's okay for some functionality to require js (that's why it exists), but the alternative UX should always be considered - even if it's a general solution of "this page requires javascript, sorry". In the specific case of revealing spoilers, a better implementation in the non-js case would be having the spoiler hidden, and preferably stating that the user should enable js to view them (or do something else as a workaround, like quote the post).

I don't think it's a blocker to a discourse migration, but I think it's noteworthy all the same.


Are you able to block js but allow it just for GRcade?

Probably blocked on that particular network. Test on 4G.

Aww, I don’t have 4G in the office. :( How will I be able to use this site for aggressive procrastination after the move?

I wonder if it is just the domain it doesn't like. I will try and set up a subdomain on my domain rather than minty's. We'll see if that helps. But it might be some keyword is flagging it in your company's webfilter.

Yes, it's mostly what I do

If blocking js is the only way to get pages on discourse though... :shifty:

I think after a few days without pages you wouldn't want to go back. It's just getting used to it.

The domain theory seems potentially correct. I can visit the main Discourse site with no problems.

Shouldn't be an issue with the domain as I use AWS Route53.

Would be interesting to get a ping and/or nslookup. It's probably more reassuring if it is just domain resolution, because I have no need for my domain to be reachable from the US, and it would mean it shouldn't be a problem once we move to the proper domain.

Can't even spell administration! Nice try, bot. Don't listen to Dual, Pavlo. He'll just try and steal your bank details.

Unrelated, what's your mother's maiden name?

whats the consensus on Read vs. un-Read threads? I like on GR just now how they are Red when there is a new message, and Grey when you have been there and are up to date.

fyi love the timeline feature in large threads
