Backer Quotes....

Post by Orpheus the Bard » September 30th, 2018, 10:05 pm

Has anybody bothered to sit through all of these or find them? If you don't you can speed scroll through them until you find your alphabetical letter and find yours there. I have enjoyed reading a lot of them, but haven't ben able to stay tuned for the whole lot. I found mine, and might have said something better if anybody told me I should.

How do you speed through them?

Didn't realise you could speed through with the spacebar. I was quite pleased with mine but it's near the bottom due to the alphabetical order: "I got 4 groups of 99 problems, but my bard ain't one".

Mine was "I know more than half of you half as well as you should hate; and hate less than all of you twice as well as I deserve...."

I was wondering about that too. I swear I tried space, but maybe not. I really think they improve that a bit. Show a label for 'space' to skip through. If someone doesn't know, they aren't likely going to sit and wait for the end. The only people likely to do so are those people, so it feels kind of short-changing the people at the end of the list for visibility. Especially with quotes they obviously intended people to see :P
Maybe add a search box for a quick filter since there's so many. Or a scroll bar... something.

well, I figured out space pretty quick, but it still look an unglodly amount of time to scroll through to 'S' (my real name) even holding space down. There's a lot of quotes in there - I feel sorry for the person or people that had to code it all in - even if the collection of the text was automated, there is still a hell of a lot of checking, editing, formatting etc to do.

I found it was the Spacebar by accident and Kudos to the people that took time to write it all down.
