What happens[edit]

User preferences are effectively disabled for now. This is an unfortunate consequence of serving static HTML files; everyone gets the same files. I'm going to be working on adding alternate style sheets using this method, but it's going to have to wait until the new caching system stabilizes. In other words, it's a low-priority bug. A higher-priority bug, though, is that you still get most of your user preferences shown on the Special:Preferences page. --Evan 15:13, 18 Nov 2004 (EST)

I've finally gotten around to filtering out many of the options that won't affect caching and I've re-enabled those. I still don't hide the ones that are disabled, though. --Evan 15:57, 24 October 2006 (EDT)
