Today I am having trouble giving out thumbs up and apples to people. Up to now, this has worked perfectly.
Anyway, I feel that every person's data belongs only to them, and I don't want anything about me to be part of anyone's business model. So these protective software tools I and many others use are a little thing that I/we do to keep a lid on the data collecting. Much in line with the above thread.
Have there been any changes recently in how these scripts are handled? Yes I have logged out and logged back in, refreshed pages and so forth, and still no additional apples or thumbs up to be seen.
Thanks for looking into this, whoever looks into such things.
Edit: Interestingly, the post "Preview" button was also disabled when I tried to preview this post, but the "Submit" version worked just fine. fyi
Another interesting thing is that the yellow pop-ups and the red bell on the right-hand side of the screen that used to inform me that someone had given a thumbs-up to a post of mine, or whatever, now no longer work either.
I assume that there was some change in the scripts that drive these things recently. And perhaps that the server-side scripts were changed to run off a third party domain instead of off a permies.com server. I don't think I need to have big privacy concerns about permies.com, but I do have big concerns about the third-party company concerned, which is well known in the internet world.
So let me just shamelessly beg here, if the above is truly the reason and not just my imagination: Couldja pleeez run as many scripts as possible off of permies.com? I'm not well enough versed in backend mechanics to understand what that might imply for the permies web dev team, but hey, that doesn't stop me beggin. I will whimper back home just fine if it's not possible. But since it was possible a week ago, I figure it's worth the ask. Thanks!
Can you please show me what you see below the following dotted line? You can simply copy and paste it as a reply to this thread. If you feel uncomfortable with publicly sharing this info, feel free to send me a PM.
My script blocker at the moment is set to allow scripts from permies.com but it blocks scripts from third parties.
