Hello Sotf-Mini Handlers:

If you take a look at the top of the forums, there is a "Coming soon" message about scrolling quotes. If you all have any suggestions for it, you can post so right here. We may be having a quote for each mini, so if you have some for any of those, feel free to post them here. These will change every now and then, so keep posting them whenever!

*A good tip to keep track of these, is to post what you think may be good quotes as you read the game.

No suggestions, but something that needs to be looked at is how the marquee scrolls on each theme. On Terminal Velocity and Zeta Original it works fine (lol who uses zeta original ever), but because Innovation and Maya are framed from top to bottom there is no way for the marquee text to enter the center without crossing the frame border, which looks rather awkward. It's worse for Ashyn (the theme I use); because there is no horizontal space for the marquee to be it overlaps with the navigation buttons, making them unclickable. As someone who uses those buttons to quickly move up folders, this is very irritating.

Ooh, is Ashyn still busted? I use Zeta Original, and it was initially only on that, but the announcement got dropped a bit early so I quickly slapped it onto the other themes. I'll take it off Ashyn until I have enough time to format it properly.

And, all the technical issues for the three mentioned themes should be ironed out now. Let me know if anything else needs fixing! Thanks for catching those.

One quote I liked was from Karen Ruiz, who said - "Every ending is happy for someone and sad for someone else."

From jimmy's post just now in A Moment of Reprise:

The Program. It's about survival of the fittest, nothing more. We can lie to ourselves by saying there is a way to escape, where in reality there isn't.


Maybe it's just me but I think this fits the Program tone so very well.

Cropped it at a slightly different point, 'cause it flowed a bit better that way, but yeah, I like that one.

Also, shoot, I forgot to mention a couple things:

1. I'll be making some calls on my own, especially featuring prominent stuff like Endgames. I usually like to shout out to Endgames.
2. It's cool that folks like some of my quotes, but I actually never use anything I've written with one of my characters, because I feel like I'm too biased as curator of the scrolling quote.

Anyways, thanks for the suggestions, and keep 'em coming. Like on Main, I'll make an archive in the first post. :)

A quote from Nick Ried in The Twilight of Our Youth:

Quote:
 
"I don't think there's any value," he said between heavy breaths, "in trying to talk at this point."


Just cause Second Chances needs some love.

Hey, this isn't a quote, but every so often, the quote has been appearing like this on my browser.

I don't know if anyone else has been having this issue, but I want to share it (I'm using Google Chrome by the way).

Yeah, it's happened to me occasionally with the odd skins. Are you running adblock? I think ads vanishing may sometimes tweak the format a bit.

Were the issues happening before that?

If not, there's nothing we can really do because that's probably the issue, but you can F5 it a couple times and it'll probably clear up. Also, Zeta Original has worked fine most of the time for me, so if you don't hate that skin it'll probably be a bit more stable.

Yeah, it looks like it comes in every so often. Yesterday was when it first started appearing like this (and it's only on this board, Main's quote is fine). But I guess it's not really that big a deal. Just wanted to know if anyone else saw it like this.

So hey, anyone got any good quotes from TV2 we could consider? Audrey's is good, but it's been up there for a while, and with the new version almost over it might be cool to update it.
