The current problem is with mp4 files. Although they require a click to play they still load into the browser. If DM or Neven can disable this autoloading and just load a thumbnail it would fix everything.

I thought mp4 files were ideal because they don't play automatically. Hmmm, there doesn't seem to be a setting I can tweak in the SMF Mod that is enabling videos to be played on the forum.

Neven Whatever you did to remove the corona virus thread from the recent posts was a good idea.

This is a good, informative and useful thread but I agree shouldn't be a highlight of the forum.
Your exceptional judgement in these areas is what makes this place so successful.

I just thought some positive feedback would be helpful.

THE NEVEN-ATOR!!!!

On killing corona thread:

MONSTER THANKS!!!!
P.S. And feeding trolls??  I'm certainly not the resident bot sabotaging/derailing ASIF on a daily basis with his/its extremely low-effort and largely off-topic post-bombing.  Why do people keep feeding that??

Thanks a lot. I was late in noticing that 'corona virus' showed up a bit much in the recent posts list.

Hi Neven,

Please, please, please can you do the same for Global Recession ?

Yours 'umbly,

Hello Neven,

Wouldn't it be an Idea to create a new section Forum>>Off-topic>>Coronavirus and to put there all the related topics (masks, Covid-19, Global recession...)

Regards,

Etienne

Etienne, there are threads for "global recession" and "masks" already.

I would like to see separate threads for "Covid-19 trivia" and "science" too, but i really can't imagine people obeying thread discipline. You would have it all mixed up and the separation would be obsolete.

I think he just means put C-19 threads in a separate sub-forum.
That would be up tp Neven.

Yes, that's what I meant. I'd prefer to have everything in one place.

I thought about this a few days ago. Even though COVID-19 isn't a consequence of AGW, I still decided to keep it in that section, because, like AGW, it's a consequence of our current global system. For the same reason I put the 'Lessons from COVID-19' thread in the 'policy and solutions' section, because the policies and solutions to this pandemic overlap with those for AGW (I would even argue they have the same prerequisites, ie conditions in which those policies and solutions would have a chance of working).

The mask stuff is pretty much off-topic everywhere, and hence fits best in 'the rest'. I've always considered 'the rest' to be the off-topic section.

Whatever, it’s your Forum.

For the record, you are wrong, super on-topic, all people masked is the only strategy that, eventually, can put people back in the streets while keeping COVID contagion rate manageable. The opposite is anti-scientific thought.

I can't be wrong, as I don't have an opinion on whether people should wear masks or not. I just have an opinion on whether that discussion should take place in the COVID-19 thread, especially if it involves endless vitriol.

But I'm wrong on many other things, of course.

OK I understand. I think there is less vitriol now that the third stage is being entered on that matter, see below. But if that's the case, there will be less reasons to discuss I guess. So nevermind.
