    A requested feature has been added to the forum, Threadmark categories.

    There are four categories, in the following display order

    • Moderation - for modposts and notices, only mods and admins have access to it.
    • Index - for things as charsheets, info, and such.
    • Threadmarks - for the story/quest posts.
    • Extras - for omakes and things.
    Thanks be to alethiophile for his techy magnanimity.

    Hmm. This is numbered differently than it is on SV or SB. For those sites, the primary threadmark category is #1. That is, for SV and SB, the primary threadmark category would be found at the URL /threadmarks?category_id=1, whereas here on QQ, it's /threadmarks?category_id=4.

    I can special-case it, but at the moment this means that NetTally can't find the threadmarks properly.

    Would you consider revising that, or should I modify NetTally? It's somewhat troublesome to consider the need to special-case every single website that uses the new threadmarks.

    It was changed fairly recently to make threadmarks the default again, so it should be id=1.

    Do I need to wait for an update cycle for that to refresh?

    Current examples:
    ID 0 (works): https://forum.questionablequesting....st-sailor-moon.6188/threadmarks?category_id=0
    ID 1 (error): https://forum.questionablequesting....st-sailor-moon.6188/threadmarks?category_id=1
    ID 4 (link in thread): https://forum.questionablequesting....st-sailor-moon.6188/threadmarks?category_id=4

    You realize the one giving an error has no threadmarks in the default category, right? The thread OP has them all in Index and Extras.

    If you haven't found a thread to test this stuff in, both of my currently active threads have 'threadmarks' and 'index' er, threadmarks. And also seem to be tallying fine. Check my signature for the active threads, which are labeled as ACTIVE, of course.
