They were never broken, Ism. Rusky replaced my Alure with the system Alure, assuming the system had an Alure. Hence, the trick is just to apt-get it. On Windows, lives will be much more complicated. But I'm sure this all fits into rusky's master plan of custom tailoring a fucking compiler environment.

This is how it looks:

Name one of the project leaders here (if you read the last page, you should know this):

Type the name of this software project backwards (Six letters; they're in 28pt type in the top-left):

Name a yellow fruit:

- Foreign people can use Google translate, or we can't help them anyway.
--- Children who cannot read cannot write
--- Children who cannot write cannot code
--- / Children who cannot read shouldn't be here
- People who do not think to go back a page did not read the question and will probably just piss everyone off.
- People who lose their details use IE, and are used to it. Those people can type their name and email again.
- If you can't be assed to copy and paste one word, you probably don't have what it takes to program.
- There is only one way to spell "ENIGMA" backwards correctly.
--- Ism and I have two and five nicknames, respectively. I accept all of them except "Ism" and "Josh."
----- The answers I *should* narrow it down to are on the previous page.
--- If you come up with a yellow fruit I haven't named, you're fucking trying too hard.

The implication was, if you can't generate a correct answer to those two questions, then you have no business on this forum. Both mine and IsmAvatar's name appears on the page prior to that one. All any idiot would have to do is press control-f and paste the word "leader" into the box that pops up in order to find one of those.

And if you don't know the name of the forum, why are you posting in it? And if you can't write it backwards, I can't help you with your problems nor do I want to hear about them.

The fucking parser keeps printing error messages with the wrong line number because somewhere or another it isn't incrementing said number when it hits an \n. I'm looking into it, but it's a stubborn issue. On the bright side, I could recode the entire segment in 500 lines or less--that's all the bigger it is.

Thanks to the efforts of polygone, our little forum has recently acquired three new members!
If you have tried creating an account recently, see the notice at the bottom of this message.

Two of them are disgusting spam bots.

The other one's legitimate. You may know him as fresnobob or, on the IRC, as mrboduma. Welcome to ENIGMA, fresnobob.

Now, you may be asking, how did we manage to acquire two spam bots? Didn't Josh spam proof the forum a year ago?

To answer the latter, yes! He did! Now, how to answer the former?

Well, it seems that while our good friend polyfuck was disabling the email verification, which I don't give a damn about, he also decided that my verification questions are too hard. You see, they actually require a brain to answer! (Rather than a 1"×1"×1/16" collection of tin, zinc, copper, gold, and silicon, I mean.)

Unfortunately, it turns out—and, get this—it turns out, if your questions don't require a fucking brain to answer, then—and pay attention to this part—things which do not have brains will be able to answer them.

So I've went and made another executive decision here—and I do hope you'll forgive me—and I went and put the old questions back.

For your further enlightenment, these were the questions that do not require a brain to answer:
  • What is 5 + 3? :
  • Name a yellow fruit:

These are questions that do require a brain to answer:
  • Name one of the project leaders here (if you read the last page, you should know this):
  • Type the name of the forum backwards (Six letters):

(I throw in the yellow fruit one too so registrants can feel creative; it accepts fifty answers, all of which have thus far been "banana")

SO. If anyone here feels they are incapable of answering the above questions, please leave a reply and I will personally ban you from the forum for all eternity.

Why does this piss me off? Because commercialism is one thing. Spamming links everywhere to steal rank from people who deserve it—DESERVE it, in the capitalistic sense, based on REPUTATION, the concept by which capitalism FUNCTIONS—is, in my book, a pretty serious crime.

Further, I don't even like the fucking pizza ads people stick under my windshield wipers. I make it a point not to visit any restaurant that does that. If you want to stand outside your restaurant and hold up a sign about how great your pizza is, that's great! If you want to do that in a public place, that's fine too! If I am uninterested, I will simply ignore your sign, or maybe I'll decide I'm rather in the mood for pizza after all, and that your effort won me over. If you tie a note to a brick about your pizza and smash it through my window, I will probably by pissed at you for it.

Of course, I also made it so registrants who have not made a post cannot set signatures, avatars, or anything else that could subtly be used to suck page rank out of everything. So in reality, no harm was done by these bots joining. Save for some kilobyte of extra crap in the database, which is negligible. I just happen to like yelling at polyfuck in public.

Notice to those who have recently attempted to register:

I found some 20 accounts "awaiting activation" from the past month or so. I just went ahead and activated them all, including duplicates. That said, if you have attempted to register here recently and were unable to activate, I have manually activated all outstanding accounts from within the past year. If you registered multiple, go ahead and use whichever account you like. We'll delete the unused ones in five years or so.

(Admins are not notified by the forum software when a member requests activation; it gets added to a queue somewhere that no one can see until we stumble upon it. When no one is on the queue, it is invisible to admins.)

I figured it'd be useful for the rare case in which you might want to nest something.

For instance,

[bubble=black][bubble=blue][bubble=blue][bubble=red]Buffalo[/bubble][bubble=blue]buffalo[/bubble][/bubble][bubble=red][bubble=blue][bubble=red]Buffalo[/bubble] [bubble=blue]buffalo[/bubble][/bubble][bubble=lime]buffalo[/bubble][/bubble][/bubble][bubble=lime][bubble=lime]buffalo[/bubble][bubble=blue][bubble=red]Buffalo[/bubble][bubble=blue]buffalo[/bubble][/bubble][/bubble][/bubble].

Also, it's more fun.

[bubble=#F0F0F0][bubble=#E0E0E0][bubble=#D0D0D0][bubble=#C0C0C0][bubble=#B0B0B0][bubble=#A0A0A0][bubble=#909090][bubble=#808080][bubble=#707070][bubble=#606060][bubble=#505050][bubble=#404040][bubble=#303030][bubble=#202020][bubble=#101010][bubble=#000000]SUCK IT, BRONIES. AND ISMAVATAR.[/bubble][/bubble][/bubble][/bubble][/bubble][/bubble][/bubble][/bubble][/bubble][/bubble][/bubble][/bubble][/bubble][/bubble][/bubble][/bubble]

I implemented uninitialized variable reporting in debug mode a while ago. Apparently it's since been broken. I'll reimplement it at some point. In the meantime, disregard polygone—that function is unrelated.

Debug mode.

@fede - No.

Ugh, secondpage'd

Yes, DarkAceZ, I've not yet installed a button. Probably won't, either, because they didn't unify that segment of the API.
