It all went pear-shaped with a little routine link checking found some leading the wrong way; coupled with the notion that it would be a lovely thing to have a countdown timer to the deadline for asking Light Yagami actors your questions. Exasperated by the fabulous idea to have a sidebar slider Highlighting Interesting Things, plus Stuff our Readers Want to Find Fast, with images.
Who would have thought that three simple, five second tasks could cause so much code to explode?
But we live and learn, with today being a particularly large curve for the latter, and normal service is now not only resumed, but greatly improved.
And while we're here with site news, a persistent issue with Facebook has finally been fixed too. Until recently, all Death Note News articles linked on Facebook appeared stuck displaying an older news item's headline, though the URL itself was correct for whatever was being shared.
Now all Facebook shared links should feature the related headline instead. Can I hear a cheer to cover the freaking hours spent pouring over code working out why and the forty seconds putting it right? Thank you.
If anyone spots anything else going awry anywhere on the site, we'd be grateful if you don't mention it would give us the heads up. Half the time such things remain broken simply because no-one here knows there's a problem. Thanks in advance for any feedback and tip offs.
