Did I miss it?

I know things happen fast.

When I loaded up the site, it was different. It reverted back to normal within a few minutes. Some kind of test, I suppose.

It had less info readily available. Fewer stats about the threads. Also, the Controls at the top of the page were not as easily accessible.

Weird… I wonder if it was just a glitch for you or as you speculate, a test?

Sounds too major to be just a failure loading/applying the stylesheet? “Flash of unstyled content”?

If there’s a complete and blanket denial that anything’s going on and we should just go about our business, I’m calling cover-up. /s

It seemed to organized to be a glitch. It was more like an alternate interface. Of course, the loading of this alternate interface could have been a glitch, true.

I genuinely have no idea what you’re referring to. Perhaps you got the mobile stylesheet when on desktop of vice-versa?

No testing going on that I’m aware of.

It could have been the wrong style sheet.

But the mobile site isn’t much different than regular imho compared to most sites.

Maybe OP has some extension interfering? Sometime sites behave oddly til I get noscript tweaked.

Oops, I did it again.

On refresh, it fixed itself.

I hope this is on topic, but how might I get rid of that horribly annoying “Top Stories” window that insists on getting in my way on the front page? I keep closing it and it keeps coming back.

I was just searching for any topics discussing the “Top Stories” box. The way it flashes is really distracting when reading. Might as well just be a blink tag that says “Fuck you”.
