Archaicly Reviving Pillowcase Poll

Gah, another two-week poll. I should really.... stop doing that. And I should really continue working on Pillowcase. Speaking of Pillowcase, here are the results!

YES!11!!!ONE - 3 vote(s)! No, 'tis archaic - 0 vote(s)! Maybe, cheese - 0 vote(s)! Indifferent - 0 vote(s)!

If you didn't get the archaic joke, read Drifty's The Girl In The Story. Unfinished as it may be, it's still very funny. :P

I've been noticing something with the Poll Of The Week. From some locations (by which I mean actual physical locations, as in another house), the AJAX Poll Of The Week doesn't work. I think I may modify the POTW so that if the AJAX request fails, it does a normal, non-AJAX request. The only reason I'm not sure I'm going to do this is because of the uncertainty of whether or not voting on the POTW will refresh the page, which could be very annoying.

1) I tested it on a few different computers (Windows Vista, XP, and 7). It seems to be Google Chrome that has a problem with the AJAX. Chrome has just about the best Javascript engine you can get, so something is wrong...

2) I almost didn't post this comment because I couldn't really be bothered copying the text, going to the login screen, coming back, and pasting the text. Having to move pages to login is the problem. Perhaps an AJAX login in the sidebar? You could have all sorts of cool things in the sidebar when logged in, like personalised stats (number of Fourm posts, comments, etc.).

3) I just noticed that you have to refresh the page after posting a comment to edit it.

  1. My tests: At my house, it always works (Windows, Linux, Firefox, IE, Chrome). At my cousin's house, only IE works. At school, only Firefox works (Chrome untested, however). It's very strange.
  2. So like, a module in the sidebar that, when logged out, allows you to log in AJAXly and when logged in, shows some stats like your username, post/comment count, avatar and such? (As a sidenote, I've just realized that as we're using The Fourm as the source of user accounts now, why am I still using Gravatar for the comment avatars? Should I switch the comments sections to use The Fourm avatars?)
  3. I could probably fix that, but modifications to Four Island are halted until the completion of FourSearch.
  4. I am also just realizing that there is no preview button for comments. I should fix that.
  5. EDIT: Also, when you post your comment, the BBCode isn't applied until you refresh the page.

Oh my god. I've discovered the bug and I must say that I am stupid. :P I was at school and I was trying to vote when I got the idea to just manually load the page that would be called via AJAX and when I did, I got a 404 Error. So, I looked at the source code and found out that you have to be logged in to vote! Omg! I will fix that ASAP.

Bahahaha oh dear, that is quite amusing :P.

I've fixed it now. :P I guess I'm just so used to writing pages that you have to be logged into for the TGS site that I typed isLoggedIn() without realizing it. :P But that doesn't make any sense because I released Layout 7 months before I restarted working on TGS, so I'm making connections with no meaning. :P
