Hmmm, can't do a table since there is now a 4000 character limit on the comments. I'll have to come up with something else.

And I did it all with my left shoe untied!

How about just the deltas? % or absolute change from one week to the next? Or just fun trivia that'll get us riled up? (worst week, etc., all that good stuff you did)

I haven't really been following any of the discussion re the updated site, but is the 4000 character limit thing a new ongoing feature or will things go back to "normal" at some point? I think I'm generally having trouble understanding what is the new SpoFi and what is a work in progress.

How about we don't fucking talk about this week at all? While I'm 100% with holden's comment immediately above, I'd like the 4000 character limit to stay until I can move my ass off the bottom of the tank.

Well, so far I've tried a few things (google docs, excel export to mht or htm) and haven't hit upon a great solution.

But I should figure out what can be done in 4000 characters.

The not quite satisfactory google docs version has the retro looking bright blue underlined hyperlinks.

Ah ha! The 4000 character limit can still permit a smaller table, such as the exclusive TOP 10. I'm developing a solution to put the full table on my own website (excel makes the html, I just need a place to plop it).

TOP 10 - Week 1 Table

2Ardley Athleticsquealy60

5Mossy UnathleticMossy55

PS - I am not enjoying the new buggy spofi. No double previews!?

I think the bottom 10 feel a little left out.

posted by YukonGold at 09:56 PM on August 20, 2008

I just feel bottomed out.

35 points? Really? Suckage.

I find the comments are much harder to read now. The spacing between comments and "posted by" information is identical, which makes it hard to easily scan from one comment to the next. A little more spacing from the bottom of the "posted by" to the top of the next comment would help. More leading! More bottom padding!

I've added some junk to the "posted by" trunk.

posted by rcade at 02:39 PM on August 21, 2008

That trunk still needs more junk.

And I'm talking about the space between comments, not FPPs (which look lovely btw - that's what the comments should be aiming for).
