Just thought I would let you know that the archive link actually links to a \"help with diabetes\" page over at Rosetta. :)

hi m9 & colleagues,

I got an email that you\'d moved a posting of mine from the guidelines thread to the feedback thread, which is fair enough if that is a better place to put it.

However, it seems that although the email says you moved it, in fact the thread has been hidden where it was before. Is this a bug, or did your mouse slip at the crucial moment?

Feel free to delete this post once my original posting has been found, or let me know if it has been lost in cyberspace and I will type it in again

R~~

Your post was moved and I checked to see that it arrived. The thread was deleted, as it was not a guideline. Check occasionally for Mod to Mod messages.

The problem comes from when it\'s moved/and hence deleted from the original location. The email we get points to the deleted(pre-moved) post and not the
post in the new location.

Is it possible (in the current software) to get the email to also link to the location of the moved post ?

If not could you also mention the section you moved it to when you post you comment (e.g. rather than just \'off topic\', use \'moved to number crunching\')

Although my experience comes from the main rosettta forum.
3 post in a row saying \'deleted, offtopic and the link goes to a delted post\', a member can get rather pissy when that happens especially as all the people in the thread would have got it.
Mods have enough greif without that coming back at you at once.
Could certainly get newer members in a huff :)

Message 602 - Posted: 25 Feb 2006, 2:44:49 UTC

Can I make a request?

Can you guys stop replying to posts in red? It\'s really hard to read and there has been at least one person who has said that he is red/green colorblind. So he can\'t see the text at all.

Thanks.

I\'ll put this one in black for you, but just so you know, it was suggested by more than one user to use color so they could easily see the Moderator posts in a thread at a glance. This issue has been raised before as you point out, and I had a friend who is red color blind look at some posts to find out from him what he could see. He told me it look like the black text in the same posts, except much lighter intensity. So even in red it is not invisible.

I tried bold, a few still wanted color. Frankly, it does not matter to me, either way I just try to accommodate the largest possible group of users. But there are no primary colors (Red, Green, Blue) that can be seen by all people. To someone who is red color blind your avatar would not look like it does to you or I because of the red component that makes it brown to our eye. Most web pages contain colors, the links are all blue for example. So the same problem exists for someone who is blue/green color blind.

So it is really a no win situation.

I will leave this here for a while and wait for other comments.

Some want red, some want black, some want bold, so maybe everyone will be equally dissatisfied with red-black-bold. :)

(Or maybe you could threaten to use cyan. :p )

Apparently, I can cause the 1% error on FA_RLX jobs to occur or not as I wish by changing a system parameter. I invite Ralph to contact me for details.
