And instead got this pop-up error message:

You could always resort to this link:

or at worst, this one:

I know how to gift and transfer geekgold, thanks. I'm making a bug report because it appears that geekgold tipping is supposed to function within the geekquestions area but it actually does not.

Great! Good to know! I looked there earlier but didn't find that, though the search function over there isn't exactly the best... So thanks for letting me know!

Who cares where it came from or whether it's correct or not? Certainly not me

Thanks for trying, Diane! This stuff has been bugged since forever, and though we all bitch and moan about it, GeekQuestions is the redheaded stepchild of the Aryan pure uebermenschen (such as Dale Yu) that run this place into the ground on a daily basis. On the other hand, Aldie is the only other person I've met who can blithely answer trivia questions while eating the world's most overrated hot wings, so I guess it's okay to love the site, bugs and all. (Note: Aldie's knowledge of movies that may or may not feature Julia Stiles is quite stellar. My knowledge of dance movies apparently expired shortly after "Singin' in the Rain.") My, how I do ramble after six hours in a car.

I'm pretty sure it was current when I did it...

One would think it would be disabled and old issues migrated. Maybe.

Anyhow, I hold no hope that anyone cares regardless of where we post it.

Wow, I didn't know that! That's very useful information! Thanks for posting it! I'll have to check it out to see if the new(er) system allows one to search for bugs, keep track of things other people have reported (that you're interesting in too), and attach update to existing bugs, or share slightly differing experiences. All things the previous system either didn't do or did poorly. I'm very happy to find out it's been replaced!

I approve of this bump and furthermore I think tipping in GeekQuestions should be fixed.

Yeah! and all it took was the "1st Lady" on getting that "F.T.L." thread being 'displaced' and it no longer is upon the "Front Page" any more! robot
