That's an awesome idea, thanks for the suggestion. I'll add it to our backlog :)
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling DDG URL parameters not being followed 3 years and 8 months ago
We just released another fix. Can you try again and let me know if it is working now?

If not, can you post the specific URL param link you're using that doesn't work?

Do you have any specific examples we can take a look at?
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Regional Settings, they are a bit annoying for a new user 3 years and 8 months ago
Thanks for the feedback, multiple regions would really cool. I'm not sure how feasible that is from a technical perspective right now, but I'll take it back to the team to discuss.

Thanks for clarifying. Country specific URL's seems like an interesting idea. Will take it back to the team to discuss. Thanks!

Thank you for posting the full url above. There was indeed another bug and that helped me find it. I have a fix for it and it should be released to the site shortly. Will let you know.

Thanks again for your help + patience while we worked through it!

Thanks. This is great feedback. We actually discussed the 'Advanced' thing on the Appearance tab, not sure why we didn't end up doing it, but maybe we should add it...

Thanks, this is really great feedback. We were actually just discussing ways to make the Region setting easier to use the other day.

Do you access DDG using the country specific url? Those are actually not run by DDG, so take caution, we have no control over them...

Any other ideas how we could maybe automatically set the region or make it easier?

What about inferring region based on IP address? Do you think something like that is going too far from a privacy/anonymity perspective?
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Cloud save settings not working 3 years and 8 months ago
Thanks for letting us know. It sounds like it might be the same issue others were experiencing (the bookmarklet for Cloud Save wasn't working). We did release a fix a few hours after your original post, so maybe it's since been fixed? I just tried to walk through the steps you outlined above and can't seem to reproduce it (everything seems to save and load fine, even with clearing cookies). Can you try again and let me know if you're still seeing the issue?

Yes, you're correct, this is a tricky use case.

We have been making the Themes more prominent on the site. Therefore, it's important that when someone applies a theme that it gets applied completely as intended. We don't want people who had maybe changed a color setting at some point to try a theme and get some ugly hybrid Frankenstein looking thing. We also thought when changing themes, any granular tweaking you might have done to colors wouldn't necessarily apply to the new theme. i.e. The off-white highlight color you might have liked in Contrast theme probably wouldn't like right in Dark theme.

So that was the thinking behind it. However, as you point out, the downside is that for the users more familiar with all the granular settings it blows out any fine tuning you might have done on top of the theme and you have to start over with the new theme.

We can take it back and discuss more, maybe there's a better solution here, definitely open to any ideas you might have!
