I've double-checked the Notification Settings. I have the email alert
enabled. Does that disable the flashing icon?
I looked through the Issues in the Inkscape-web gitlab account, but
didn't see this. Should I make a new Issue report for this? Or is it not
supposed to flash anymore?
I guess this is the only way to have a group discussion among moderators
(other than setting a time to meet in chatroom) since I don't have diehumblex's
email address yet. Other community members are welcome to respond, if you have
comments or opinions, but otherwise, this is directed towards moderators.
Maren) which she thought might have been testing to find out if the site could
be hacked or traffic redirected. (She wasn't sure though). But being
potentially so severe, I thought I would utilize SFS to look and see if the
member had been previously reported as a spammer. Of course I could only look
up the username, since I don't have access to email or IP address. But it made
me wonder if we should consider using StopForumSpam, to report newly identified
What do we think about potientially using SFS in gallery moderation?
It would not necessarily require an interface, such as Inkscape
Community has (where you just click a button, and SFS is accessed and searched
for the selected member). We can simply look up member names "manually".
But more importantly, I would like to report spammers there. Just our
small contribution to the effort, you know. But to me, it's worth the extra
effort. It would stop them from spamming other sites. Although admittedly,
just reporting the member name won't do much. It would really only have a
significant effect if moderator had the IP address and email address.
Thanks for comments :-)
Thanks C R!
PS - I received the plaque.
Thanks again :-)

My thought - If it mentions Inkscape, it's free advertising for the project.
If it's spam, at least it's relevant spam. :D
I vote to leave it up. imho we don't need to be ruthless unless
there's some problem with too much of it. - It will make the project
seem unfriendly to anything outside its own interests, and hostile to
working with designers/developers who offer free editing with Inkscape
as a benefit (I do this a lot with my own design work).
They no-doubt post that pdf elsewhere with Inkscape compatibility
listed as a benefit. I believe that's exactly the kind of thing we

But unfortunately, when I click Release, it turns blue, and that's all. There's
no edit button. I'm not so much a website developer, as someone who watches out
for the contents.
(Originally I created a lot of the contents, but only the simple pages. There's
a lot of the site I just don't have access to, because I don't understand it.)

To edit the page, when you're on the page, click on "Release" in the
header, then "Edit Release"
I happened to be looking through the Release Notes which now appear on
the website, under each of the versions of Inkscape which are available for
download. I noticed for some of the 0.48.x versions, under Known Issues, it
"Not as awesome as 0.91"
For 0.48.3.1 it says "not as awesome as 0.49" which might be a clue
these items were added around the time the decision was made to jump from 0.48
to 0.91. So apparently this was done on the wiki, and just made the transfer to
the website recently.
That doesn't sound especially professional to me. It sounds like a joke
actually. Especially when there are no other known issues listed!
If it's supposed to be some kind of motivation to upgrade, I think there
probably is a more professional way to do it. I mean, it's not even a release
note, since 0.91 was not made when 0.48.x was released. For goodness sakes!
But I really think it should be removed. Or at the very least,
re-worded. Is there some reason for that, which I haven't imagined yet?
PS - I'd offer to delete them, except I don't appear to have access to those
Also, the about screen is not showing on the download pages for versions earlier
than 0.48.5. Shall I make an Issue report? Or is someone currently working on
There's a recent new upload to the gallery, which appears to be
instructions for using a website which helps people create their own logos, for
a price. I can't see that it has anything to do with Inkscape (except in its
PDF, it recommends using Inkscape to edit the logos).
They could be considering the phrase in the CoC "made to be used with
Inkscape" wrongly. But I'm not sure. (copying to the devel list, re CoC)
I'm just looking for some other opinions about this, whether it should
remain in the gallery at all, or remain under a different category. Personally,
I think it's spam. But since I tend to be rather ruthless about spam, I thought
I should ask for other opinions.
Does anyone see any relationship to Inkscape here?
long-time Inkscape user here, looking to get into coding for it too.
I created this really simple extension for setting CSS classes
<https://github.com/monomon/inkscape-set-css-class> on elements.
It has an option to clear inline styles of the elements, so that the css
class would have an effect.
It is useful when having numerous elements that repeat or have the same
First, select a correctly styled one, use "Merge styles into CSS".
Then select the rest and use "Set CSS class" to apply the new style on them.
I am aware of the extension posted on the forums that sets classes
but having to manually clear styles after is a bit of a pain, so not
completely usable for my case... and it's not in a code repository, so
no way to contribute.
I read that in GSoC CSS handling will be improved, which is awesome!
Hope someone finds this useful.
