Nice to see this being worked on!

@Freñçh, did you import SMF's Dutch language pack, or are you translating from scratch?

It was pretty brilliant, wasn't it? I know I loved it to bits. :P Have to wonder what happened to the Zygons, actually! Great to see them again, though!

It was full of cameos! Carole Ann Ford played a grandmother, William Russell played the security guard at the beginning... I'm pretty sure I spotted Mark Gatiss in the background somewhere, too. I should watch it a second time, I guess. :P

And have you seen Marc Gatiss's docudrama yet? Titled "An Adventure In Space And Time", it depicts the early days of Doctor Who in 90 minutes. Very well and respectfully done.

I can't believe SMF's has always been so 'dirty', in comparison...
Well, at the time, the main rationale behind having all those unused globals was having them there for mod authors to use, so they wouldn't have to modify the global-line as well — which, in most cases, would cause conflicts.

Now that we're all moving towards hook-based mods, it's certainly time to clean it all up, indeed.

Probably because by 2005, Big Finish had already done loads of audio adventures with him. Returning him proper in the TV series, without effectively retconning all he's done in the audio series, would involve quite a few issues with copyright, I guess. That, and the copyright for the TV movie is technically with Fox, I'm told.

Oh, the usual. I use 'HTTPS Everywhere' in Firefox, so all YouTube urls are using https instead of http for me. The only difference is the protocol that prefixes the url. :)

As for the TV movie... It's rather silly (if not awful) story-wise, but Paul McGann's performance is superb. Loved him in the few audio novels I've listened to, too.

Well, that exceeded my wildest expectations. Bloody brilliant, very exciting stuff. Good times indeed.

PS: @Nao, auto-embedding doesn't seem to work with https.

Thought: why are we doing the zebra striping in classes? Can't we just use :nth-child(odd) and :nth-child(even) to handle that? I can think of other places that would be nice (like the thoughts on the front page, it always feels weird when we do anything odd with it)
Yes, please. Saves a lot of headaches.

I'm loving it in the Weaving theme. Great work, even if you're not fully satisfied yet! :)

Hmm, would it be an idea to switch to 'position: fixed' when the scrollTop is within a given boundary? That way, the browser can handle the positioning directly in its render engine, so things should be much smoother.

I'd assume it the scrolling to be tackled through JavaScript, so ... through a theme-specific piece of JavaScript that the vertical layout has, but the horizontal does not? I guess the horizontal could override the vertical one with a dummy if need be — not sure how Wedge tackles overriding internally, but I guess you've got that covered.

Love the result so far... Had an idea: perhaps you could have the .poster box scroll with the posts? Especially useful when scrolling through topics with several long posts by the same user (e.g. the changelog topic).

Very excited about it indeed! Bit disappointing to realise we still have to wait about a year until we can finally see him in the role...

In the mean time, there's this:
