Re: Security warning on raspberrypi.org?

Thanks for the note, I'll try to explain what's happening here... When LastPass fills in the forum login form it inserts the username into the `username` field as below: Screenshot 2019-10-09 at 10.27.53.png At the bottom of the page, you'll see there's a newsletter sign up form - this uses a servic...

Re: posting or replies blocked

We have various firewall rulesets in place because, well, this is a forum and they're historically not the most secure pieces of software :| The relevant rules have been tweaked. Sorry for the faff, as ever with these things there are going to be false-positives when attempting to prevent the possib...

Re: Cannot Search Forum

Forum search has been hit particularly hard over the last 3 days so we've enabled some temporary limits to try to keep the forums up and accessible to as many people as possible. These limits mean that, for now, many people will see issues when using functionality that relies on the search backend (...

Re: A new level of seasickness

Makes you wonder what hardware the web designers are using? i7's with GTX1080? Quite a mix, for me: 1.2 GHz Intel Core M w/ Intel HD Graphics 5300 We test on a variety of Pis (often over VNC, where performance is further impacted). However as mentioned above, work is ongoing (/ never-ending) especi...

Re: A new level of seasickness

Changing the homepage for the first time in ~ 4 years was always going to rattle the cage ;) Interestingly, the homepage is now loading (and thus becomes usable) 3x faster than the previous one (mean avg over 13 distributed regions), always plenty more work to do and critical feedback is most welcom...

Yes not enough contrast, hence one gets distracted from the actual comments.

Hide my online status doesn't work? I have tried yes and no, seems to have no effect.
When hidden you can still see yourself in online user listings, but others cannot. Pop into Incognito mode (or similar) to double check.

Re: STICKY: NEW FORUM SKIN - Comments here please.

On the top Since you say the post's user info is 'On the top' I'm assuming you're viewing this on a narrow-width screen where the forum layout shifts to single-column (see attached). If this is the case, hit the username and you'll be taken to the user's profile page where you can then send a PM.

Re: STICKY: NEW FORUM SKIN - Comments here please.

Body text of posts is very light grey in thin font, not very comfortable for me to read. Is there any way I can change the font? I'm running Firefox ESR 52.2.0 (64 bit) on a Debian 8 box if that helps. It's #555, so a pretty dark grey. Does the image below represent what you're seeing? Screengrab: ...

It appears the RPI theme is using full justification (vs. flush left aka "ragged right") - please don't do that. It makes pages pretty at the expense of making them harder to read. Please let readability win.
Yep you're absolutely right, fix incoming...
