Big anniversary at the end of this month -- I wouldn't be surprised if there were some laurels in the offing, now that we mention it.
That would be nice. Personally, I'd love to see Glüc receive some sort of nod.

Edit: I wasn't wrong, apparently only the sound notification used Flash, which is hilariously odd.
That is bizarre. Thanks for explaining what was going on.

Anthem of the Peaceful Army
by Greta Van Fleet

I love these guys and, unlike many of the critics, have zero problems with their clear influences from Led Zeppelin and Rush. It's still the kind of music I would want from those bands if they were still producing.

Solid album. As good as but different from their double EP From The Fires.

Exception: the song "You're The One" is... terrible. Awful. Trite and embarrassing. But the rest of the record is great, and only better with repeated listening.

If I can get the UrN despite being branded the Kingdom of Talossa's Public Enemy #1 for the first 15 years of my involvement, anyone can, lol
When's the last time anyone was knighted for exceptional acts, long service, anything? The last knight-related thing I recall was a revocation.

Five lines and 12 point sounds good to me.

There, you can turn off signatures and avatars, as I have done.  :-)
We don't want to turn them off, just limit them. Twenty lines is excessive. Better to save it for the wiki bio.

someone right now has a signature that literally fills my whole screen, on desktop, on a 38 inch high-res screen!  It's counting as 20 lines of text and space in a fairly large font size.
It consumes nearly a whole screen on mobile as well.

So yeah, this would be nice, unless it's better defined as a netiquette issue.

Paste this line in the Time Format box:
%B %e, %Y, %l:%M %p
Note: This code also removes seconds from the time, because having posts displayed down to the second just looked ridiculous to me.
The Webspace / [Wittenberg] Date and Time Display options

Just a tip for people who dislike Witt's default display of date and time, which has leading zeroes in front of day of the month or hour of the day.

Visit this page:;area=theme

Paste this line in the Time Format box:
%B %e, %Y, %l:%M %p

~ SP

P.S. Here's a useful page that lists many time and date options:

I'm reverting it back to the original tagging-by-displayname, and if needed I can see if I can make the display name autocomplete more helpful
It's really too bad it works either/or. Now it's easier to find my name (@Sevastáin Pinátsch ) or ( @Miestrâ Schiva, UrN ) but the links aren't there. And your name @L... doesn't autocomplete without the accent over the "u".

Overall though, I'm really pleased with the ability to control and customize this space, and very grateful for all the work you're doing on it.

(Wait, can you see usernames if you aren't an admin? Hmm. Gonna check that now.)
No, we can't, so changing from the original mod might have been a mistake...

Indeed, and incidentally, thanks for trying functionalities out, so that I can see if they work properly.

Quotes and code blocks should now be much more readable on the dark theme. The light theme was already mostly fine.
Thanks! Code blocks on dark theme look great now.

It'll be tough for those of us who use initials. My login name is sp, like on the wiki. I'm assuming ad has done the same.

@Sir Alexandreu Davinescu

Edit: Yeah.

Interesting that it uses a BBCode enclosure. If you hover over people's names you can see their user number (u=##). In a pinch, you can find someone's U# and then tag people manually by number, like:

(fill in whatever nickname you want between the tags.)
