[00:43:20] <Dominus> hmm, after the fawn trial, when you visit dupre he can join you again... But this is with SI fixes. maybe that is a problem...
[01:09:21] <-- Colourless has left IRC (Quit: casts improved invisibility)
[01:31:02] <Dominus> problem is that you can initiate conversations through prison bars
[01:31:34] <Dominus> the original doesn't allow that thus you can't ask dupre. if you cheat your way into the cell in the original you can ask him to join...

[10:43:37] <Dominus> if this mass spammer in the tracker keeps up should we disable anonymous posting?
[10:43:50] <Dominus> I'd really rather not but this is
[10:44:35] <Dominus> but today was massive... and at first I thought evenmore would come when willem deleted them... too bad we cannot delete delete them :(
[10:44:46] <-- shazza has left IRC ()
[10:45:54] <wjp> hm, yeah, I was thinking of requiring accounts too
[10:47:19] <Dominus> some years ago we did require accounts (or rather SF changed the requirements and then for some reason allowed anonymous posting again)
[10:48:59] <Dominus> last night I renamed the spam at least that it doesn't look as bad in the tracker...
[10:50:03] <wjp> yeah, I saw; thanks
[10:50:26] <wjp> the 'mass update' (unsurprisingly) didn't allow mass-renaming, so I didn't this morning
[10:51:32] <Dominus> I will probably do this later...
[11:00:57] <Dominus> hmm, seems if we file a bug report with SF they will remove the spam... to hide them we can set them to private, too
[11:01:17] <Dominus> but that is not a mass update feature :(
[11:04:29] <Dominus> I'll file a ticket
[11:12:46] <Dominus> I'll also disable anonymous posting for all trackers for about a month. Maybe the spammer is done by then :)
[11:22:58] <Dominus> disabled anonymous posting in patches and feature requests as well. in patches it really makes sense besides the spam. hid the support request tracker from public view as well
[11:30:53] <wjp> thanks
[11:32:30] <Dominus> np, *I* was annoyed :)

[17:26:59] <Dominus> marzo, sorry for assigning this bug to you first... I found another bug that is either SI fixes only or could/be fixed by it - when you talk to harnna about the strange objects, the conversation item "strange coins" doesn't disappear once you click it
[17:28:26] <Dominus> also the flags description about some of those strang objects hunt is wrong - the "ASKED_NPC_ABOUT..." is actually more "Can_ask_NPC_about...", those flags get set when talking to Harnna.
[17:29:08] <Marzo> Considering that SI Fixes does not touch Harnna's usecode, it is in the original
[17:29:26] <Dominus> :)
[17:31:09] <Marzo> But yes, it is fixable in SI Fixes
[17:31:34] <Dominus> I've locally changed the si_gflags.uc from (for example) ASKED_BRENDANN_ABOUT_STOCKINGS = 0x99 to ASK_BRENDANN_ABOUT_STOCKINGS = 0x99 <- is that ok or could this screw things up?
[17:32:19] <Dominus> and about Harnna, should I file a feature request so it is not forgotten?
[17:34:50] <Dominus> the autonotepad feature does come handy at times... :)

[20:18:58] <Marzo> Dominus: re: ASKED_BRENDANN_ABOUT_STOCKINGS -> ASK_BRENDANN_ABOUT_STOCKINGS: this particular variable does not seem to be used (by name) anywhere else, so that change only in si_gflags.uc is safe.
[20:19:11] <Marzo> Re: Harnna bug report: yes, please
