Loading Messages!
 
Notice LF is now sporting loading messages!
I wonder who is responsible for this? (Kudos to where it is deserved)

This is a neat feature... only problem is people with blazing internet connections (:shads3:) have hardly any time to read the messages...

Rtas Vadum 01-18-2009 03:29 AM

I like it, but my connection is fast enough where i can just read at most, a few words if anything, before it loads the main forum page.

Sabretooth 01-18-2009 06:27 AM

I don't see any loading messages, what nonsensical prank is this?

Agree. My connection is fast enough that I can't even get them now that I'm trying to.

I think you can get it after you edit a comment in full edit. After you click submit, you get a loading screen that says something like "thank you for submitting your comment" and at the bottom of the box it says a quote.

Endorenna 01-18-2009 11:04 AM

(shrug) I don't care one way or t'other. They go by too fast for me to read 'em.

Astor 01-18-2009 11:13 AM

I haven't seen any.

CommanderQ 01-18-2009 11:25 AM

I saw one once, but then I failed to see it again:( WHAT IS THIS TREACHERY???!!

Strange, I'm getting several Sun Tzu quotes.

Is that what it said? I thought it said Shih Tzu. :lol:

Miltiades 01-18-2009 12:47 PM

Never noticed such thing.

tk102 01-18-2009 01:09 PM

This "feature" was requested awhile back, though I felt Sun Tzu was a bit more succinct here than Dostoyevsky or Tolstoy. There's currently only a 30% chance any quote will be shown on a given redirection page.

I've added a slightly longer delay for those redirects that contain the messages.

Thanks teekay.... but I thought you were retired? :xp:

I'm retired from moderating. Still a system admin though. :p

Mav 01-18-2009 02:29 PM

Apparently I need to find a computer that is connected to dial-up cause I see no quotes :(, which is fine by me, I've longed to hear that telephone dialing noise...

Det. Bart Lasiter 01-18-2009 03:18 PM

the internet superheroes posting message is the best

Darth333 01-18-2009 03:27 PM

If you see no quotes, try logging off and on, the delay is a bit longer...

Subscribing to a forum over and over again is how I tested it.

Bob Lion54 01-18-2009 09:02 PM

tk, it needs more Benny Lava, especially his wonderful Barber and Ninja Movements.

Also, a "UFOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! " would be very much welcomed.

I guess I will go against the flow of this thread. Personally I don't like it. If Iwas dial-up then I would really hate it. When I was on 56K I adblocked every signature image to lessen the load time. Even with decent broadband I still adblock all of the signature images because I don't want to waste my time/connection scrolling past them. Also if I had my way there would be no size 7 signatures.

From what I've seen, it's just text and only a few words. It shouldn't really affect anyone.

And you can turn sigs off in your profile.

Not an option for some people as there are useful links present in some peoples sigs... emphasis on some. ;)

I like the loading messages a lot...good job tk!

I noticed that when I signed in today it just said....

"Thank you for logging in Rev7

--Sun Tzu "

Without a quote...

Boba Rhett 01-24-2009 11:18 PM

I like them a lot but couldn't help notice the distinct lack of Rhett Quotes. Most of what spills out of my mouth is sage wisdom and should be recognized as such, dammit.

You want to see some parts of the signature, but not all of it, and not everyones, aka you want to have your cake and eat it too.

Is it wrong that I now wish to nickname you Jolee Rhett? :xp:

CommanderQ 01-26-2009 10:33 AM

I just got a Sun Tzu message on the edit loading screen. This one was quite interesting, it was explaining on how capturing one pound of your enemies food is equal to 20 pounds of your own....

Now I'm very hungry:D

Has anyone captured some of what has spilled out of aforementioned mouth? Need quotes to be able to add quotes. :)

Ferc Kast 01-26-2009 12:36 PM

I have yet to see any 'loading messages'. :confused:

Nothing to do with what I said... maybe the other poster but not me. :giveup:

EnderWiggin 01-27-2009 06:10 AM

Not true, you said that turning off signatures was "Not an option for some people as there are useful links present in some peoples sigs... emphasis on some" but that you "agreed" that you didn't like signatures.

Perhaps you weren't referring to yourself, in which case my comment still applies - to whoever you were referring to as "some people". Of course, if you weren't talking about yourself I have no idea how you'd come to the conclusion that it was not "an option" for "some people".

But that has nothing to do with the "cake or eat it too" in your response... that's where I get confused... if I were asking for something here then it may have had relevance as a reply to my post, but... oh well... we drifted off topic enough methinks. ;)

If there is a topic? :lol:
