Meta: A Couple of Notes for TKPC Members

1. I enabled a new feature for TKPC members. It's a user "badge". Set in your user profile, and it will show up in threads next to your username. (I may adjust the color scheme down the road.) This was a small user-facing feature of decent amount of back-end work to enable other features down the road.

2. For the newest members, I packaged 19 keychain bottle openers this morning and they will ship tomorrow. Sorry for the delay.

Yay! My bottle opener is coming!

Thanks for all the work.

EDIT: Bottle opener arrived!

Nice, thanks! I saw those badges on one of fireman's posts yesterday and jumped onboard too.

Awesome! Now I can make even more money on TKP!

Edit: I only posted this crap to see if a badge showed up. I went to profile and could only type something. How do you get an emoji in there?

This is a test of the TKPC badge system

I found TKP after two rails from TOTS then walking back to my apartment and re-watching the 2012 Sugar Bowl. I woke up the next day with this username.

I would love to know (a) what the context is behind this gif, and (b) what you searched for to find it.

Enquiring minds want to know!

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

All the TKPC members gonna be showing off that flair like

Your best? Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and FUCK the prom queen!

Logging onto TKP and seeing some new TKP swag had me like...

Is it basketball season yet?

Badge test...

My wife takes the kids and leaves the house while I watch my Hokie games.........nuff said

I should have also mentioned, for those who view the /comments stream, new comments appear in yellow exactly as they would in a thread. That is because of some of the aforementioned back-end work I did. It's much easier to show leg totals there now (a long asked for request). I just need to find the time to hammer it out.

This is neat. Kudos for offseason success.

Joe,

Yodaman!

Er... Test?

Love this upgrade

Nice work Joe!

yours is my favorite so far

Does anyone else think the white text on grey tag is a little tough to read?

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

I do, at least in certain situations. I might tweak it based on the comment color background (e.g. default grey, new yellow, +10 green, etc...).

Default grey and plaid are pretty difficult. The others are decent.

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

If you're going to have the official stamps here be white text on maroon, then maybe maroon text on orange for the badges? Should work on all the backgrounds and should be simple enough

even just changing to black text on that grey stamp might work

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

or maroon if you want to keep with the VT theme.

I just thought the orange might stand out more. Subliminally, it might make those who aren't TKPC members feel like they're missing out a little more and subtly pressure more to join.

Thanks Joe πŸ˜‰

As always, the work is appreciated - hope that you've been enjoying somewhat stepping away to focus on the rest of your life Joe!

fun tidbit. I set mine on my phone with emojis. Then I tried to edit it from my desktop, but I couldn't add any text, just delete it. Then I could add text, but not emojis.

I need to allow those quotes through with a different escape method. Will do that soon.

that's a double exclamation point emoji

edit: noice

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

Also fyi Joe, it doesn't like punctuation. I had it as

pronounced "Kevin"

And it was showing as

Pronounced &quotekevin&quot

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Should be resolved.

I think I'm going to enjoy this

This seems dangerous, I like danger

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
β€œI served in the United States Navy"

Whooo, badge check-in!

What a savings

Very cool. Thank you, Joe.

This feature has turned out to be pretty fun.

I intend to continue to push the limits of what can be done with badges.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.
