    Did you ever see that Liberty Mutual commercial with the people doing good deeds? Brad Hicks on LJ had some good commentary on it today.

    Wait, so links are invisible until you mouseover?

    Hmm. I bet I didn’t include all the CSS buckets when I marked up the comments fields. Whee css.

    I’ll send my condolences to Nighthawk.

  9. kirabug says:

    Like what? I’ll be glad to tell you anything you want to know… or you can get a migraine from my CSS file – it’s only 700 lines….

  10. kirabug says:

    Oh, and I fixed the invisible link issue by adding another bucket level. Now the comments are ultra-colorful!

  11. peri_renna says:

    Ah – blue+underline = unfollowed, green = followed.

    Another … bucket level? What? Is this one of those ‘how do you get 6 gallons’ problems?

  12. peri_renna says:

    Oh, hey – can you tell the difference between “I typed in my URL” and “I’m logged in”? Can anyone?

    Like what?

    I dunno – <q> tags? <em> and <strong>? It probably doesn’t matter, I’m just babbling.

  13. peri_renna says:

    “Can anyone”. Hello, avatar!

  14. kirabug says:

    Since the php that generates the page doesn’t (currently) distinguish between logged-in and not-logged-in code, there’s no way for me to tell the css file to change the style depending on login status. I suppose with hours of work I could devise a way… but really, as long as you have an avatar set, that’s the best way because the call to fetch the avatar is based on your internal user number, not on your username. In other words, someone else could (probably, I haven’t tested) use your username to fake a comment from you but the lack of avatar would give them away.

    Huh. I hadn’t thought of it as a security feature when I’d added it.

  15. kirabug says:

    Hmm, so I can pretend to be someone else? Like the bug herself?

  16. jzimbert says:

    Bug, quit talking about yourself in the third person. Jzimbert finds that weird.

  17. kirabug says:

    Ooh, I don’t like that. Hrm. Maybe I’ll go back to registered users post comments….

  18. jamie says:

    i agree it is a little weird. but would make for some fun posts :)

  19. kirabug says:

    That’s fun when you’re the one doing the typing but it’s not as fun when you’re on the receiving end.

  20. jamie says:

    true. and i apologize for posing as a bug. i hope the punishment is minimal.
