Thread text bubble - FIXED

I feel sure the beginning of the first post of a thread came up in a 'bubble' when the mouse cursor was placed over the thread title, now it doesn't. A bubble does come up for example when the mouse cursor is over 'NEW THREAD' it says 'Post New Thead'.

Re: Thread text bubble

As long as "some functionalities" and "improve the speed of the forum" aren't code for "we're dropping the preview function to make the forum run faster" we're willing to wait -- at least for a tiny bit. After that, we can't be blamed if chaos breaks out.

Re: Thread text bubble

I must admit the bubble is one of the many features of this forum I love. I'll be patient for a while

I thought the bubble missing problem was because I had a new wireless optical mouse, and I spent ages 'hovering' over numerous posts.
So before you make any changes in future ,could you please let everybody that has bought a new mouse know about it in advance.
Surely not too much to ask?

It's happening as we speak. There's wood for the handles, cardboard for the signage, paint and markers for the lettering. If you can think of anything else send it this way. After that we're ready to storm the Bastille...errrr...AO headquarters.

I'd been fiddling with my system too trying to work some bugs out of it. I thought I did something to the set-up to prevent myself from seeing the bubble, so you weren't the only one hovering in vain.

Excellent!!
I've had a root about in the garage and I've found three old tyres, some wood and an old beer barrel. Surely enough for at least one barricade?

Re: Thread text bubble

Indubitablely.

The only thing missing are some oil barrels (to house the hand-warming fires) and the torches...

Oops. Did I let the "torches" part of the plan slip out? My bad. That was supposed to be in the top secret, eyes only part of the dossier.

Re: Thread text bubble

My Dad might have an old barrel on the farm somewhere for the handwarming fire. I've also got some old tyres and alloys from my last car, they should help boost the barricade

It's too soon for that. That's a Stage Three tactic -- after the initial protest and after the bit with the torches.

Stage Three is when we need to bring in the progaganda. When we work on capturing the hearts and minds of the proletariat and the plebeians and the unwashed masses. That's when we need the slogans and the commercials and movies and plaintively aching protest songs.

If we start with this phase too soon, the movement won't look spontaneous. It will look too manunfacturered and artificial. We need to encourage an organic groundswell of support. We need the images of us in action in order to serve as inspiration for our followers, and then we need to repeat those images and ideals over and over again in a way that brings glorification to our cause and glamour to our ideals. That is the way to win the hearts and minds and to ensure our rightful victory.

It has been a long time since I've led a revolution, but the marching drumbeat of the parade and picket line still resounds in my heart and the chanting of protestors still fills my ears. I long to bring those sensations to life once again.
