    Just a minor little thing... in the reply box, the QUOTE button is hidden under the "+" sign next to the Media button

    Could the Quote button be given its own place please, as there plenty of space for it ?

    Maybe even give the Spoiler, Code, Strike-thru actions their own button space too?[/QUOTE]

    A better way to reply to comments than to quote them, like reddits cascading comments. Also a way to choose which way the comments sort (new -> old, old -> new, most likes,...)

    Wait... but if you sort by most likes, the thread doesn't make sense anymore...

    If replies are cascading the thread should still make sense. Since replies to replies are attached and indented. Only replies directly to the posted are ordered, and replies to replies are all ordered within their own reply. (Just look at reddit if you don't get what I mean)

    Ah... I see... Then why not just use r/Cubers?

    I don't know, I kinda like the way Speedsolving does it. It keeps everything nice and chronological.

    Chronological (or reverse chronological) still remains as the only sensible option unless you want to ensure that late replies never get any visibility because they'd be buried by fast-but-heavily-upvoted replies.

    Since this afternoon (Thu 27th) I've been unable to access any of the site with scripting turned off, I get a message about 'cloudflare ddos' and some hex numbers, telling me it won't work without scripting.
    I turned on scripting, reloaded the page, then turned off scripting, and it's carried on working OK after that. I guess some cookie must've been set??
    Is this a permanent change, or just some temporary cloudflare-related 'protection process'.?

    Cloudflare has been popping up on my screen today too, but only for 5 seconds, then goes off and the site comes up.

    Hi everybody. I am new. I created my account because I have an idea. In database algorithms: why not create a list of algs for right-handers and another for left-handers. If a person is looking for an algorithm that suits him or her, it could become much easier. I mean, something like this :

    Left-handers :
    F' L' U' L U F

    Right-handers :
    F R U R' U' F'

  11. Or you could just mirror the algs which most of the databases already contain.
