Links are no longer showing up as clicked on?

Post by Myouki »

I know the title might sound a bit confusing, but bear with me.

So before the site went down for maintenance, any new (as in never clicked on) links showed up as blue text and new creature images had a blue line under them, like this:

When the text/image link was clicked on, the color would change (mine's set to purple) to indicate the link had been accessed at some point until the next time I wipe my browser's cache. Now though, the color never changes from blue, which makes it difficult to tell whether I've already clicked on a creature in the hatchery threads; clicking on text links in people's signatures yields the same result. Checking the offsite nursery, the link color is still changing as it did previously:

Seeing as we've recently had to cut down on goldmining due to lag issues, I think it would be beneficial for us and the site to be able to see what creatures we've already interacted with to cut down on opening tabs to creatures we've already clicked, thus creating less stress on the server overall.

I noticed this happening more recently with IFN links as well (started sometime in the past week or two).

Notably, clicking them again darkens them. I haven't checked exactly, but it looks like they might refresh every so often (I click through IFN 2-3 times a day and have noticed the links are all blue when I go to click recently).

Oh, this happens to me, too.

I thought it was just something weird my browsers were doing with an update or something like that. I mean, that may still be the case, but it's interesting to note that it's not just me.

My links on the IFN also change colours, but clicked critters here on the site don't.

The clicked links actually do show up as a different color than the ones that are not clicked. The color difference is just so small that it's hard to discern especially on smaller screens. These colors hadn't been adjusted to the overall Magistream theme after the site upgrade.

I've now changed the clicked links within threads to a more greyed-out color:

Hmm. For some reason click links aren't showing up as that pale for me, they still look like the first example. :/ I even tried a hard refresh in case that was it.

Would it be possible to make them turn into a more distinct colour? Like purple or even just grey? Something that's not a shade a of blue so it's more noticable? On clickable text it's slightly more noticable but when going through the click threads it just, isn't.
