Please graveyard this as it is no longer required, it's now implemented inside Damage by default.

What GFreak said. This will be added to submission rules (eventually).

You should have posted the link :p

Regardless of if either was faster, you should not have been doing it anyways. As Anitarf points out, it is probably CPU (processor) specific.

vJass errors are legion
Or another speedfreak myth like that nonsense Increment/Decrement Captain Griffin tried a few months ago.

The system deals damage to the unit. Which triggers the which is used by many spells or other systems. Example, if a hero has a damage reflecting aura(like Spectre's DotA Dispersion), and detects armor, it will deal damage to surrounding units and players would think it is bug(it is). More dangerous if this unit's armor is being detected every period.

I need these system, but it conflicts with spells that I use with damage detect. Please fix D:
 
I know you're going to think I'm crazy for this, but:

JASS:
return -(Ln(2-reduction)/-0.061875)

->
JASS:
return Ln(2-reduction)/0.061875

    I have a GIF though

    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.

    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
