New Panther info bar added... Site News
Everyone should now see an extra horizontal bar at the top of the screen -- the Panther (10.3) Hints bar. This will stay at the top of the pages for quite a while as the transition is made. Here's what each link in the bar does:
  • See new hints -- Takes you to the Panther meta-hint to see a running list of all new Panther hints
  • See older hints -- Runs a search for the Panther-proven phrase to show all older hints that have been tagged as compatible.
  • Hint works in Panther -- Opens an email form so you can easily tell us that a given hint works with Panther. Please remember to copy and paste the URL from the page into the email!
  • Hint fails in Panther -- The opposite of the previous; let us know that a hint breaks in Panther (again, don't forget the URL!).
Hopefully this will help ease the Panther transition on the site, but I obviously need your help to make it work -- use the links to notiify me as you play around with the older hints, and I'll add one of the two Panther-proven tags to the hint, as appropriate:

Panther proven!

Panther broken!
So please help me help you -- send in updates when you find hints that work or don't work in 10.3...

You could have the URL generate in the email automagically.
[a href=" in Panther&body=<?php echo $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI]; ?>"]Hint works in Panther[/a]

just a thought.

You may have to string a couple of PHP variables together to get the full URL including arguments but it is possible I'm sure.

Actually you could just post the story ID in the email since that variable is already to hand...

[a href=" on Panther&body=<?php echo ($_GET['story']?"Story ID is: ".$_GET['story']."\n":"Please return to the website and choose a hint page first."); ?>"]Hint works in Panther[/a]

How about a See Broken Hints link so we can see what hints don't work anymore?

Just search on Panther Broken! and set the pop-up menu to "Exact phrase" on the Advanced Search page, and you've got it. I'll add a link soon, too, but right now there aren't any marked (that's tonight's project).
