The first root log explains why the root logs exist.

March 2, 2001

  • made Message Inbox (superdoc) say the total number of messages you have
  • let users decide to not pick don't show new writeups by default; addwriteup (htmlcode) creates the checkbox, and user settings (superdoc) is where the settings are
  • made superbless (superdoc) adjust karma correctly, depending on curse/bless (before it always raised karma)
  • changed voteit so users can't vote on writeups sent to node row; this is a hack, as only content editors and gods should be able to even see the writeup in the first place
  • the killing floor II (superdoc) warns you if a writeup has already been deleted; massacre (opcode) won't try to erase a writeup twice (before, it was possible to erase something multiple times, which would deduct 5 XP from the writeup's author each time (thanks Rancid_Pickle for bringing that to my attention)
  • created showUserGroups (htmlcode), which lists the groups a given user (if no user given, tries to use the current node, assuming the current node is a user (if the current node isn't a user, then the current user is used)) is in
  • added a line to classic user display page (htmlpage) and jukka user display page (htmlpage) to show the groups a user is in (in their homenode)

March 3, 2001

  • updated List Nodes of Type (superdoc) to user HTMLVARS hash hash for permission check, and allow gods to list a few more types

March 4, 2001

  • created superdoc printable page (htmlpage), so superdocs can be printed by adding &displaytype=printable to the superdoc URL; however, for some reason, printableheader gives an error, so there is no header shown
  • see "New Experience System" section of N-Wing's plaything (superdoc) for ideas about the new XP system
  • started processMessage (htmlcode); the goal of this is to make sending messages from code easier (example: when a "bot" like Cool Man Eddie says something)

March 5, 2001

March 7, 2001

March 8, 2001

  • Made uploaduserimage (htmlcode) spell "receive" correctly.
  • Made Guest User (the user used when people aren't logged in) have full display.
  • made showmessages (htmlcode) show last n messages if a negative value is passed

March 13, 2001

  • added kind of ugly fix to epicenter (nodelet) to fix the error that happens when a user has no votes (a numeric inequality has one parameter as the string "NONE")
  • added filter to showmessages (htmlcode) and private message XML ticker, which will only show messages from fromuser if given in the URL
  • added text field to message inbox to let users easily filter by names (so they don't have to edit the URL manually)

March 15, 2001

  • more breaking down the chatterbox into subroutines: created chatterinfo (htmlcode), tweaked showmessages (htmlcode), modified chatterbox (nodelet)
  • when you're borged, chatterbox (nodelet) has a message saying so, and has "erase checked" button so user can delete messages
  • added "show newest messages" option to user settings

March 16, 2001

  • Everything Data Pages (superdoc) shows node_id and links to "viewcode" version, if person is in edev group
  • made all theme full page containers call showNodelets (htmlcode) to insert the nodelets
  • User Search XML Ticker (fullpage) can get information about another user by adding usersearch=user_name ; for example, to get nate's writeups, visit: ; of course, writeup reputations for a user other than yourself are not given
  • made adminbar (htmlchoke) escape double quotes in node titles so doesn't give JavaScript error

March 17, 2001

  • when sending [a] group[s] a message, users don't get duplicate messages if they are in the group multiple times (such as when a group belongs to another group, and a user is a member of both groups)

March 19, 2001

March 20, 2001

  • hehe, normal users could vote on a writeup that was marked for deletion, but not yet removed, but content editors and gods couldn't - they would see who deleted it; voteit (htmlcode) fixed so nobody could vote, and everybody would know if it was marked for deletion (but normal users still aren't shown who marked it)

March 21, 2001

March 24, 2001

March 26, 2001

  • added parameter to Node Heaven to enable sorting; some of the sort methods can be done easily by clicking on the column headings
  • made showchatter (htmlcode), showmessages (htmlcode), and chatterbox XML ticker stop calling htmlScreen and do several s/// instead so s/&/&/g isn't called, so entities can be shown in chatterbox

March 30, 2001

March 31, 2001

  • made usergroup display page not show the annoying (at least, annoying for me) leading dash
  • all those AFD things... (TODO: create a writeup that has code & explanations of code things done)
