The old cert was revoked as the new one was rolled out.

Which browser extensions are you talking about? Thanks.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling DDG Classic 4 years and 4 months ago
If you go to the settings menu by clicking the icon on the top right, select "Look & Feel" and change the theme to "Retro DDG", is this an improvement?

The plain HTML version of the site also offers a theme closer to the original:

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling How do i choose which pages of my site to be crawled 4 years and 4 months ago
Any well behaved web crawler will respect a site's robots.txt file. If you wish to restrict crawler access to certain directories, this is a good place to start:

http://www.robotstxt.org/

If you want to have your site discovered by crawlers, get it linked from other sites.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Vegetarian recipe 4 years and 4 months ago
I like the idea, but I don't know if doing this in an automated way would provide satisfactory results - I think a person adapting a recipe will do a better job than a machine programmed to replace the word "beef" with "tvp" or "azuki beans".

Our sources for recipes have a decent amount of vegetarian meals, is there a particular recipe search which gave a bad or inappropriate result?

Hey, sorry for the delay in replying.

I think generally, we've leaned toward more informal / friendly forms of language. Since the English we use in stuff like microsites (e.g. http://whatisdnt.com/) is pretty informal we would expect the translations to reflect that.

We trust the judgment of translators a lot to take the context into account on what form to use. If you think the formal form should be used in a given case, then please feel free to submit that and if the consensus is that it's correct it will be up-voted over time.

With the new version of DuckDuckGo, some of the URLs in older token notes currently don't expose the target token. In some cases the feature has changed and the URL is no longer valid. In others, the feature has yet to be ported across to the new version.

I am currently working on some features for the translation interface which should give people better information on where the token appears and how it looks. Reporting bad translations and retiring older tokens is also planned.

Thanks!

If you click the menu button on the top right of the page, you can select a different theme for the site. Does this help?

a comment on the token What's new! in the domain DuckDuckGo.com for the language German of Germany 4 years and 5 months ago
Should this translation have the exclamation mark? (I don't know...)
