Could there be a way to click on a specific reply post and only display that post and replies to that post? Not least because it would make the tangents in the "permission" thread legible.

You mean like in livejournal comment threads?
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 12:52pm
are you in red?
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 12:55pm
All the posts I've seen since I got my badge are encompassed in red. Maybe related?
edit: Actually, once I had read your reply, the red went away. I'm thinking...to help us figure out where the new posts are!
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 1:12pm
I wish they were a different color, though. The red looks out of place. Maybe I'll get used it it...it definitely catches my eye, anyway, and that's good. I've been having some trouble keeping up with new posts. I wonder if the red ones are just the ones in the "Recent comments" sidebar.
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 5:08pm
That was probably where I got the idea from, yes (though not consciously.)
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 1:14pm
the red. In new or old. O.o Taken down already or is it a mozilla thing?
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 1:15pm
Nope, I'm still seeing it... any comment that has "new" next to it is in a red box.
and it works for me! And it's still there.
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 1:17pm
I don't think it's the recent comments sidebar, because if I go into a topic I've never read, even if it's an old one, they're ALL red because they're ALL new comments to me. The out of place is a good thing. It matches some of the badges, but it's still eye catching.
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 1:29pm
still not getting any red.

post what browser you're using?
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 4:59pm
No red here. Using Chrome. Kind of odd that Firefox would see it and Chrome wouldn't, since they're both basically Mozilla clones...
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 5:07pm
Scratch that. I can see it after having cleared my cache as Meilin suggested.
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 1:36pm
It's me specific? So only red comments are ones I haven't seen? That is the coolest thing ever! Thanks, Mei! (Also, I was right, the red is growing on me).
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 2:12pm
I put it up in that color just to see if it worked or not. It works. Those of you who can't see it, clear your cache; you've probably cache'd the style sheet. I'm going to change the color to one that better matches the theme--which desperately needs changed.
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 3:09pm
that worked. ^_^ and I LIKE this theme!
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 4:36pm
What's wrong with it? It's all parchmenty and old looking, and it makes me happy.
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 5:49pm
But, but, but, fellow Taurean, you *know* I don't like change in my home-y places.....!
And yet somehow I'm sure I'll manage to survive if need be
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 6:25pm
I'm quite partial to parchment/taupe/etc shades, so I really like this color scheme. It gives off a nice warm, homey vibe What are you thinking about changing it to?
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 7:30pm
I'm not going to change the parchment etc. I'm more likely to change the layout. This one is busted.

what any pair of twins hopes to never have to say during a moment of intimacy for $600 please, Alex.
Wed, 02/18/2009 - 9:31am
That is the worst mental picture I've had in a long time. Thanks for that
Wed, 02/18/2009 - 9:33am
I try. }:)
Fri, 02/20/2009 - 1:01am
You really need to learn to block mental images, because after years of learning that skill from my best friend, that comment was hilarious
Fri, 02/20/2009 - 5:37am
I'm not creative enough I guess--when I read, when I hear absurd things, I rarely envision them. This "mental image" thing only really happens to me with memory, or when someone very explicitly describes something and asks me to focus.
Fri, 02/20/2009 - 12:37pm
I can picture just about anything, and that's not always good. Anytime I do something that's a near miss, like I just miss my finger with the hammer, or I watch someone step out of the way just as a car goes by, I can imagine the worst in horrifying detail. It really freaks me out sometimes. I get really scary dreams sometimes, too.
It's good for sex-things though.
Fri, 02/20/2009 - 1:06pm
After No1 was born, I was in constant terror; I could see horrible threats everywhere I looked, and what the threats could do...*shudder* I had to talk to a therapist about it, it was so bad. Turned out to be postnatal hormones, but still. augh.
I still have a vivid imagination, but I don't see threats everywhere any more. Just most places...
Fri, 02/20/2009 - 1:16pm
You know, the more I talk to people with kids, the less I want to have them! This sounds awful! You never sleep again, there is postpartum depression (just read Marley & Me if you want to talk yourself out of having kids) and apparently now hormonal paranoia, your vagina gets stretched out, you gain weight and you automatically look 10 years older than you did before you had the baby, they cry, vomit, and poop for the first two years of their lives, and you never have time to read a book again. I think I would even like toddlers, because they can talk and have more well-defined personalities, but infants sound terrible, and the time you spend with an infant recovering from pregnancy sounds worse.
I'm sure someday hormones will kick in and I will be baby-crazy like everyone else I know, but practically, it sounds pretty awful. I know that they are all these upsides and nothing can compare to the love you have for your children, but I don't know if I'm willing to do that. I guess I will be someday. Maybe I'll adopt.

"It sucks. Except when it doesn't."
The times when it doesn't are completely worth the times when it does.

and the actor who plays him, Aaron Douglas, the Least Likely Hot Guy on BSG.
Fri, 02/20/2009 - 6:34pm
While Helo, to me, is the 'Hottest Looking' (followed closely by Anders), there is just something about Tyrol that got me after a few episodes. Maybe it's the broad shoulders, the tilt of his chin, the quiet and capable way he handles things, I dunno; but yeah. Very, very sexy man.
Starbuck is far and away my pick of the ladies - which pretty much explains why I'm doomed when it comes to women.
Fri, 02/20/2009 - 6:40pm
Lee--he's just smokin'. Then Tyrol, who looks like I couldn't break him and who might appreciate a big girl. In heaven, Helo is always shirtless, but he's third. (I loved it that in the opening of "Dollhouse" he was boxing. swoon!) After that, you'll laugh, but the Old Man. I LOVE the romance with Laura and him. They are, as one reviewer said, the most adorable geriatric couple in scifi.
Fri, 02/20/2009 - 7:09pm
I love the relationship between Laura and Adama. I hope to have something that loving and comfortable when I'm their age (and god knows, I hope I look as good as Laura!!)
And older guys get to be hot too. Just look at Mark Harmon!
Sat, 02/21/2009 - 2:04pm
My list of hot BSG men:
3. Tigh (I love how cantankerous he is!)
Adama isn't my type of eyecandy, but I do love Adama/Laura something fierce. It's rare to see older coupledom explored so well in TV, let alone SF as you remarked.
Sat, 02/21/2009 - 2:43pm
that I interviewed Olmos many, many, many years ago? Extremely nice man.
Sat, 02/21/2009 - 2:47pm
I'm not surprised he's exceedingly nice. Wow, you've had an amazing life! Btw, did you like the Olmos shout-out in the Dollhouse pilot ep?
Sat, 02/21/2009 - 3:04pm
The only 'celebrity encounter' I've had is that I made Leonardo DiCaprio's coffee once (via his gopher, so it doesn't even really count). That would be awesome!
Sat, 02/21/2009 - 4:00pm
All kinds of odd celebrities. I wouldn't call any of them friends, and I doubt a one of them would remember me. I've had a checkered career.
Fri, 02/20/2009 - 6:48pm
To be fair, if you have a pet, they cry (or at least whine), vomit, poop, and mindless eat *all* of their lives. At least babies grow out of some of it and learn to call you "mama". I'm also pretty sure there's several things that compare (not the *same*, but certainly *equitable*) to the love you have for your children (the love you have for your spouse comes to mind).
That said, one of my friends who was pursuing a pediatrics-type medical degree, but likely to not practice after she has kids: "I can make a little difference in a lot of kids lives (pediatrician), or I can make a huge difference in a couple kid's lives (her kids)."
Me, I think I'm simply too selfish to have kids. I like my *me* time and a little disposable income. I resent the idea of becoming one of those moms whose lives revolve around chauffering (sp) their kids from school to activities to sports and baking birthday cupcakes for the whole class. Blargh. It isn't wrong, it's just sooooooooooo not me. Too pissy/ornery/stubborn/resentful "Get yer own damn ride to violin lessons, I'm tired, damnit, and I need to go back out to the barn in ten minutes to feed a calf."
Speaking of which - time to go feed that darn calf (so annoying when they're not born during regular chore time) and see if any more baby goats have arrived ;-D
Sat, 02/21/2009 - 3:16pm
I don't think I could deal with having kids either, and for pretty much the same reasons. I like my peace and quiet, I like my space and privacy, and there are just so many better things I could do with the money. As far as pets, cats get out of the annoying stage in the short time it takes you to litter box train them. After that they're friendly little lap warmers and a source of entertainment; plus, you can sick them on your the feet of your friends by sneaky application of a laser pointer
Wed, 02/18/2009 - 6:21pm
I get the impression that the Warrior's Temple would frown on any such display, instead choosing a stone-faced response of "No excuse, Brother Imbert!" and acceptance of whatever pile of trouble we've gotten ourselves into >.
Wed, 02/18/2009 - 6:40pm
they would spank us? *sigh* I'll never be a Brother!
Wed, 02/18/2009 - 8:04pm
would seem to be the purview of the Lover's or Mother's temple. And apparently there are female brothers--and methinks you might just have the attitude and stubbornness to make it, if that was what you really wanted.
Wed, 02/18/2009 - 8:39pm
and while I was joking about the spanking, I think I would actually enjoy spending time there. I think if I could only pick one temple, it would be the Lover's temple, but I've always really liked physical activity, and I've always wanted to learn how to box (I've been deterred by the possibility of brain damage, honestly). I bet I could learn a lot at the Brother's temple. I'm flattered you think I could make it there, though...thank you!
Wed, 02/18/2009 - 9:24am
I'd only experienced the old system for a few days, but I already LOVE the borders around the new posts. Forum navigation is so much easier, especially in popular topics. Thanks for the suggestion, eDreamer, and thanks to MeiLin for changing it!
Fri, 02/20/2009 - 12:35am
Thanks... But the red border was not actually my idea. Meilin gets all the credit for that.
Possibly my idea (above) will be implemented with the new layout she talked about... or not. If the layout is redone it might not be as important, though.
Fri, 02/20/2009 - 12:16pm
The borders do make it much, much easier!
