It used to be title and body. Now it's just the title. I'll upgrade the search in the future. It's on my to-do list.
I'm also considering Tumblr and Google+, but I want to run this for a bit to see if people actually use those buttons.
I added social sharing buttons to topic pages. (Some people already saw them over the past few days as I was rolling it out, but this is the formal announcement.)
You'll see them: "Save", "Share", "Tweet" -- for Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter respectively. Buttons are shown near the top-left corner of the page on the first page of every topic. Topics with pictures have a Pinterest save button. Topics without pictures only have Facebook and Twitter buttons.
This new functionality should make it easier for you to save or share your topics with your inner circle outside of our forum. So there is no need to copy/paste the URL anymore when you want to send it to your followers.
If you aren't sure what these are for (the whole pinning, sharing, tweeting thing), then don't worry about it. Forum functionality is not affected by these buttons in any way, and they are not required for the use of the forum. You can just continue using our forum as before.
If you don't use social networks or don't want those buttons to be shown, then click My Profile link at the top, scroll down to Custom View Settings, and enable "Hide social network sharing buttons" option.
I'm still testing things on the back end, so if you notice these buttons not working as expected, then please let me know.
This isn't permanent yet. I want to test it out and see if people actually use those buttons. So we are going to run it as a trial for a couple of months.
I'm going to sticky this announcement until Tuesday to make sure people who receive the digest once per week (on Mondays) see it.
Please PM me a screenshot of the ad that plays audio. I'll try to filter it out. This shouldn't be happening.
You should use Report Issue link of the post in question, if it's political and posted in Main.

Those are served by Google. And they use historical data, keywords, trends, etc. to tailor the ads. So different people see different ads based individual interests. And the way in which they figure out a person's interests is very sophisticated.
You might search for several different things, and if there are a lot of people who searched for the same things and also searched for some some specific topic, then they might show you ads for that topic, even though you never searched for it directly. Just because you fit the profile of someone who might be interested in it too, based on millions of other people with similar patterns.
And then, selection bias kicks in. You are interested in that topic, and so you notice ads that are about that topic, while you don't notice ads about some other topics which aren't of interest to you, even thought they still match the same patterns.
Are you talking about pop ups or banner ads? We don't serve any popups here.
Please PM me screenshot of what you see.
Try right-clicking on X where the image is supposed to be. In the dialog, there should be an option to allow images from static.uglyhedgehog.com.
Please PM me a screenshot of such ad and the last time you saw it. I'll try to track it down.
My problem with UHH ads is that unless you have a very fast computer, these ads freeze UHH pages, along with the annoying "This application has stopped responding" and "Do you want to close the browser and reopen your tabs" messages.
If that happens to you, then please send me a PM and let me know. I might be able to tweak some settings for your account.
Please PM me a screenshot of what you see. I'll look into it. There should only be standard banner ads.
jblayney, Mac, rjaywallace, I made some changes to your accounts. Please let me know if you notice any improvement or not.
I think Apple pushed out an update that is currently causing some problems.
