    ICANNWatch.org We're Upgrading Our Software
    posted by michael on Tuesday September 09 2003, @09:32AM

    If all goes well, later today we will be upgrading the slash software that powers this site. If all goes very, very well, you won't notice anything different, at least not right away, except that the upgrade should awaken the metamoderation feature.

    If you notice anything stranger or buggier than usual, please let us know by emailing the webmaster, using that very word @icannwatch.org, or by attaching comments to this article.

    Update: 09/09 21:26 GMT by Michael: If you are reading this, you're seeing the updated version of the site.

    In the longer run, once we are sure that everything has settled down nicely, we may be able to add a couple of fun extra features in the latest release.

    Once again, thanks to the nice guys at Openflows who do all the hard work under the hood, and to the Markle Foundation for the grant that made it all possible.

    The search function does seem to be more verbose, however, as I have pointed out to the Editors previously, it still doesn't seem to properly parse the older archives. Try .md, that is, molodova, for example, and see if any of my deathless prose appears, even though I know full when that I have fulminated on that term way back in the dark ages. And if you're willing to trace that down it doesn't google either, so I can only assume that at best the ancient archives are generated dynamically.

    I suppose the thing to do in future is show your work and keep a copy for yourself. It's not like anything I say is worth saving but sometimes it takes a considerable amount of work to come up with one of the thousands of submissions I've made and, call me a fool, I thought they'd still be here. -g

    Meta Moderation

    I've meta-moderated 3 days in a row now.

    All 3 times I've been handed the exact same comments to meta-moderate.

    This can't be correct.

    Where's the moderate button?

    I currently have moderator access. Each comment has the expected menu of choices. But there is no "moderate" button to submit them.
