quote [ Traditionally, tin or aluminum is meant to commemorate the 10th wedding anniversary. Known for their resilience and inability to rust, they symbolize the durability of your marriage. But if you want to give?or receive?a bit more glamorous of a gift, you might prefer the more modern 10th-anniversary theme of diamonds. ]
Since the last ten years have beaten the spark out of me, I've asked chatGPT to write you a thank you letter. Be sure to thank the handful of folks you see with subscriber badges, they're the ones keeping the site online.
quote [ You're still here. ]
Why is time still passing? Who did this! Fucking A.

Since we've had that most recent crash a couple of months ago, and especially since finding about that fucking hack, I've been going through the old code base trying to proactively fix shit before it'll become an issue. In the process, I've been revamping and trying to streamline some of the back end features. One of which is the Karma system.

So godaddy updated some stuff last night, I guess. The SE code clearly did not like that. I'm working on fixing it now, but it's gonna take more time to get through it all.
I've got posting mostly working, main page, entries, and comments. I'll keep this post up to date with pages as I finish it. If you run into an error on a page that I've already marked off as fixed please post it in the comments here. Thanks.

quote [ This tag is used to post videos. By inserting the url of the video's page. iow the link to the youtube page it will automatically retrieve the video details and embed the video in a spoiler box. ]
So, the SELINK tag broke a month or so ago because youtube changed the way their opengraph tags were setup. I think I've fixed all that, but in addition I've been able to update the OpenGraph scraper code that both the Prep Post and SELINK uses. So now you can pretty much use SELINK for whatevs.
Examples in extended.
Also, the post prep should be a lot more accurate in automatically grabbing thumbnails and things from problematic news sites like wired, the guardian, nytimes, etc. Not perfect but better. :D

quote [ So, I chose Sensible Endowment because this site is basically an inheritance of the old community, it's also run primarily by donations, and, most of all, to be well endowed is to have large genitalia ;) ]
Wow. So, it's a been a bit of a year, huh?
quote [ There was an idea-Mookie knows this-called Sensible Endowment. The idea was to bring together a group of of remarkable people to see if they could become something more. To see if they could work together when we needed them to, to fight the battles that we never could. Joecam died still believing in that idea, in heroes. ]
We're still hanging in there, I guess. Thank you to the folks still trying to keep this place active.
I meant 6 years. I'm very tired.
Oh, right. We are running quite low on subscribers, if anyone would like to help out.

:steele: JFC, it is too early for this shit. Login cookies were default set in the code to expire in the far, far off future of Jan 1, 2020. Fixed it, hopefully we don't lose anybody. Happy new year.? ? ]
Hopefully you have your passwords or your email account is up to date. If you can't get back in, email sensibleendowment at gmail and with your credit card and social security we'll verify your account and get you back in.

Just a couple of things. About a month ago I got a report from one of our users that an email they only used for SE has started receiving spam. I've been going through the logs since then and haven't seen anything indicating that we've been hacked, but it's also not impossible. Now SE doesn't store your passwords in plaintext, they're salted and hashed. The only thing they really could have gotten is your email address, browsing data, who owns what socks, etc. (aka, my retirement plan for when I sell out to facebook.) If you use your SE password for any other sites (Which you really shouldn't.) you should still probably change them.
Also, I've been doing a bit of updates on the consequences of low karma for dealing with spams and trolls. So the new karma rules (subject to change as I flesh them out) are that you need greater than -5 points to comment, 15 points to mod, and 30 points to post. Negative Karma regenerates, and 15 and 30 are more than easy enough to attain for someone that takes part in the community, in my opinion. I was also working on a captcha for low karma accounts, but things went south on that. So it's been put on hold for a bit.
Hope y'all are doing well. I'm so freaking hot, I think Florida may be on fire again.
