So, I'm assuming you mean the things that we populate in the "data-" attributes on the page. This is a standard that allows us to store arbitrary data in the HTML document about which elements (such as avatars) relate to which user IDs. We have different data structures that hold more detailed information, but being able to make those associations straight in the HTML is pretty powerful. It allows us to know, for example, when you click an avatar whose profile we should display. There is one in there that is special, "data-bind" that's used by Knockout, which is our template engine. It tells Knockout how to populate the content. You can read more about how those values work here: http://knockoutjs.com/ And glad you got a chuckle out of the filename. That was me. hehe.
10% seriously use ie?
10% use IE8. A much more significant percentage use IE overall, but IE9 isn't as bad implementation wise.
hmm i never knew anyone still uses i.e. sorry
O.O people still use IE ?! D: that's embarrassing ;P
Specifically, IE8 was kind enough to require that Farmdawg reimplement the String split function. Thanks IE8! As a side note, all of the content you see when you view source is template content. What that means is that it's mostly placeholders. That's why you get things like the “I'm a masseuse” text that Feury was so kind to put in when he built private messages and such. These templates are then taken by Knockout and have real information filled in from the server.
hahah I always see that "I'm a masseuse" when I go to my messages. And I always think "That's nice". xD I learn so much on OS everyday haha
"I'm a masseuse" is the personal fact I wanted to know about Shadow. Is this source publicly available and if so where is the link?
IT'S A LIE! :p You can usually view the source code to the pages by going to view -> View Page Source (in most browsers). Some hide it a bit more, but it's usually available somewhere in the menus.
I also enjoyed the "I'm a masseuse" bit. Thanks for the info.
haha I should totally get a screenshot xD
