      Evening, Comrade... I wonder if I could pick your brain for an idea - I'm building a website for someone and he's looking to have his meal deal offers shown as images, but it'd be helpful if the text was also searchable. Can you think of any way to include the text so that it doesn't impact on the image but will still show up on search engines? Obviously, the first idea was along the lines of tiny or hidden text, but I know that search engines have wised to that being used for spam. Only other idea I have is the alt text, but I suspect that's not searchable either.

        Google has amazing algorithms, including ones to filter out that keyword spamming. Ever typed something in Google but by accident you typed everything a key to the left or right? They've actually got algorithms that figure that out for their "did you mean derp" when you typed "sweo" or "frt[" (just random examples, I don't expect them to do that for derp).

      • Jalnor

        Yeah, I knew that was the original purpose etc. but figured by now they'd probably added it to a blacklist the same way they filter text hidden behind images or text that's too small, since it would likely get used by some to saturate keywords. But they probably have better algorithms to filter that out, right enough.

        Cheers smiley1.gif

        Alt texts are what speech terminals for blind users see, and it's also what search engines see in lieu of images. Using alternative texts for images is part of search engine optimization 101.

      • Jalnor

        6 years ago

        So the alt text would show up in searches, then? Excellent, cheers!

      Also, today's tuesday and thus Gears bloodbowlday, come join for a bloodfest where everybody wears a jack 'o lantern on their gears head.


      When? Specify your timing so that Comrades don't show up 2 hours early and get bored or show up just as you log off wink.png

      Ah. Sadly, Google isn't too forthcoming with relevant data - it's apparently not something many folk discuss lol.png

      What sort of performance breakdown does it give at the end of a Matchmaking game?

    • Jalnor

      7 years ago

      How did the Gears meetup go, by the way? Anyone join? Any scores to put in the spreadsheet?

    • Jalnor

      7 years ago

      Tell you what... take a snap for me of all the screens present at the end of one of your games - or at least all the screens that in some way pertain to your score. That'll give me a better idea of what I'm looking at constructing wink.png

    • Jalnor

      7 years ago

      I'll give you a laugh... due to being 27 days old, your negative score's all but erased. If you score positively from now on, you've a good chance of ranking well bigsmile.png
      We'll need to work out a scoring system for Gears 3...

    • Jalnor

      7 years ago

      It's the same concept as Firefight, in a nutshell. I don't count that because fighting the AI is never the same as fighting real Blues. If I counted my score for one Firefight game, I'd instantaneously be a Chief Desyatnik Comrade, despite currently being the lowest-ranking Strelets Comrade. Its scores are so disproportionate to Matchmaking that one game would effectively make any Matchmaking scores irrelevant.

      Edit: Also, you're an Admin of the Facebook page, but you're not a fan. That's unusual!

      Gears 3 can be either campaign co-op, horde or regular MP.


      Er... for the purposes of our domination, only matchmade games will count. Obviously, other games can be played, but you can't rank in them - except training scenarios, but I don't know if Gears 3 has a custom game function.

      Okeh, so you're setting it to run concurrently with the current Reach schedule?
      The idea was to check when players are able to play; is that your only available slot?

    • Jalnor

      Evening, Comrade!

      When you have a few minutes, could you perchance make up a table or list of the days and times that you could designate as the standard weekly Gears 3 meeting, please? It'd help immensely in scheduling for your squad once it forms bigsmile.png

      Even if it's a spreadsheet with days along one axis and hour-by-hour slots along the other with red, yellow and green shading wink.png

    • Jalnor

      7 years ago

      Keh... I've tried very, very hard to explain the rank thing now in the government thread. Shout out with any questions, as I've never been good at making complex data accessible. But the more specific and probing questions you ask, the better I should be able to clarify smile.png

      I'm also looking for a consensus on a few bits of the promotion requirements wink.png

      Blarg. Seems as if I've been disappearing on you a lot... I swear it's not avoidance, just bad timing sad.png Hopefully, I'll do some more Reach on Monday, if not tonight. See you then?

      Hey, dude, thanks for registering in the poll! Any chance you can check the previous two articles and let me know if/when you're usually available?

      I've been meaning to ask you, actually - when you get news about Xbox stuff that might interest the Comrades, how happy would you be to prepare a brief news post to go up at the same time as your official article goes live?
      It'd certainly be better than me watching the grape vine and usually being awarded a late pass wink.png

      Maybe he really is playing a game, but he's genuinly lazy. Although he may be nice, and it may be part of the game, I think it's a bit of manipulation.
