  • WHY??

    June 26, 2009

  • But Pro, if there are indents, squares, or dots, don't they all serve the same purpose? *possibly still not awake*

    June 23, 2009

  • I see indents too.

    Edit: In Explorer I see boxes.

    June 23, 2009

  • Right, on the linked page I see big blue spots. And I think I'm awake. At least I should be.

    June 23, 2009

  • C_b: My list of lists should show that spot for all my open lists.

    June 23, 2009

  • In your first post, I see this:
    �? (Z NOTATION SPOT)
    In your second one, the link works.

    If that's not what you're asking, sorry--I'm not really awake yet. *yawns*

    June 23, 2009

  • I can see the big black spot!

    June 23, 2009

  • I can see them.

    June 23, 2009

  • Crap! How about the rest of you?

    June 23, 2009

  • Nozink. What I think are your open lists appear to be indented one space.

    June 23, 2009

  • What do you see instead?

    June 23, 2009

  • I can't see it.

    June 23, 2009

  • I finally chose to add �? (Z NOTATION SPOT) to the name of my open lists.

    June 23, 2009

  • @Prolagus-Paradox: Kudos, wonderful. :-)

    December 18, 2008

  • Yo, bilby. :D

    December 18, 2008

  • Mercy Me!

  • Another temporary idea could be adding Prolagus's open lists (in my case) and it would become a list in reverse -- cool! I'll do it soon.

    December 12, 2008

  • Popularity would make it very hard to manage. I couldn't even remember which ones I'd set as open. Unfortunately, you can't tag a list without tagging every word in it as well. Hopefully the marker feature will be out soon.

    Not to mention, having it in my lists is somehow annoying.

    December 12, 2008

  • That should convince John :)

    December 12, 2008

  • I'm hoping John will add the promised automatic marker soon and this method will never become popular enough for me to have to worry about it. (Besides, the right-hand column would become enormous if we all used this...)

    December 12, 2008

  • The new paradox is that this word is now fit for Meta, but Meta is not an open list so it shouldn't have it listed...

    December 12, 2008

  • Just noticed the conversation about open lists on features. I'll add this word to all of my open lists in case anyone wants to add to them. (And thanks for all the help I've had so far!) Credit: Prolagus
