^ found a minor glitch.

When you link to a post, the link takes you to the correct post but the "preview" of it shows something completely different.

Hit that link ^ about changing Maureen's name to strippersalt and you'll find its actually a link to your post from a page ago about changing user names every 6 months.


Wouldn't matter if all you saw was a link with a post number in it but the "preview" showing a totally different post can make things confusing.


Unless that's intentional, in which case well done, sir.

The mouseover preview should show you the very first post in the thread.

On a phone the preview automatically shows, but it's a preview of the top post of that page, not a preview of the post you actually linked to


I don't know how else to explain it other than to say look at this page on a phone.

That’s not confusing at all.

So we want to link to a specific post and it takes the link clicker to a different post. Got it.

Not that I ever link to a previous post. I don’t GAF

Yes, I knew that. The preview is still confusing.

That was my point.
On a phone there is no mouse to holdover. The preview automatically shows by default, and it usually reads as some bizarre weird thing that's unrelated to the post it actually links to.

I don’t think it’s a fly setting. I think it’s a software thing that someone didn’t catch.

Which end of the battery goes which way?

I don’t know fuck all.
It's the URL unfurling. When you post a link to anything like a news thread, or even a forum thread, it grabs data about that link to post with it.
