Today the forum was not reachable for about three hours. I am very sorry for the inconvenience.

I updated all the software on (blog, wiki, bugtracker and forum) today. The latter turned out to be quite problematic and it took me perhaps 4 hours to get through with it. As usual after an update, please tell me if you stumble upon any errors or display problems.

Otherwise, you might have noticed that I reworked the downloads and development snapshots page.

Cool, maybe one thing to consider is to have no sub-buttons under the download button, since the dev snapshots can be found on the page easily and the archived versions are not clicked on a lot I presume.
Parent - - By Newton [th] Date 2013-10-18 21:14
The OS detection is not 100%, there must be a possibility to get at the downloads that are not intended for the detected platform (that doesn't involve JS).

Sorry if I was unclear: I meant the "buttons" in the header of our website: Latest Release, Development Snapshot and Archive. I think these button which appear when you hover on Download are useless and I don't like such kind of hidden buttons in websites.

I use that sub-button a lot when downloading the latest snapshot. Having to wait for another page load to get snapshot would be suboptimal imo.

Also: When you click directly on "Download", you go to the main download page.

Yes, that's true for slow internet connections.

Why is the windows 32-bit button so big?
Parent - By Newton [th] Date 2013-10-19 16:02
See here
Parent - By Maikel Date 2013-11-03 19:41
FYI: Once you search in the documentation the website header is gone.

I implemented a homebrew OS detection for the download page. The download for the platform you use is displayed as this big button. If it does not show the download for your platform (operating system + cpu architecture), please tell me here and I'll look into it.

Win8.1 64bit but I get shown Win32 download (Chrome, IE and Firefox).
Parent - - By Pyrit Date 2013-10-19 16:33
Win 7 64-bit. I also get displayed the 32-bit download. On 32-bit Firefox. And also on 64-bit IE.
Parent - By Andriel Date 2013-10-19 16:34
Same here

Can you tell me what your FF and IE send as User Agent?

How to make mantis less ugly? Easy:

table.width100 {
    border: medium none;

Parent - - By Isilkor Date 2013-10-21 09:44
Without the border, the "There are no notes attached to this issue." text should be left-aligned instead of centered, because right now it looks very detached from its heading.
Parent - By Newton [th] Date 2013-10-21 14:50
hmm {
  text-align: left;

I applied for a Crucible FOSS license yesterday. Thanks for making me look like an idiot, Newton, I really appreciate it.
Parent - - By Newton [th] Date 2013-10-22 08:49
You are welcome ;-)

No seriously, sorry for that. I wasn't aware that you applied for the license yesterday or that the looks of the website would play any role in this. I meant to put the joke up for only a few hours or so but a power outage thwarted my plans.

I know that communication via internet is somewhat lossy, but especially because of that it is important that we keep being on familiar terms with each other. For me, it is hard to not be insulted by your post / bugtracker entry. You know that I meant you no harm with this joke, so this could have been resolved without loosing your temper. I want to ask you to treat your fellow Clonkers in a respectful manner in the future. After all, OpenClonk is a hobby project of all of us, we all put work into this together in our free time and want to have fun and feel good about it.

Do you make a point of sticking your business cards into a cowpat before you hand them out to prospective clients or employers too? Because that's what the website is, it's a business card for the project. And nothing says professional like a stained business card with a pungent aroma.

I'd like to pretend that we're at least trying to be professional instead of bumbling fools.

Yes, absolutely!

Well, it was a design that pops!

The timing was indeed a bit unfortunate, as I understand Atlassian might not want to see their product used by (a and associated with) projects that look too unprofessional. But generally I think every FOSS user is a valuable advertisment for them, so they are unlikely to turn down such requests.

Also, chill plz. Webmasters do jokes on big, commercial webpages all the time. Even the Google logo frequently gets some pretty silly designs! There's really no reason to get too agitated about it.
