i don't know if this would help but it sounds like you want the effect to stay toggled on/off when you change pages, right? it might be worthwhile to look into localStorage, which can let values stay the same even after a page is refreshed. i don't know a lot about it but i've been practicing w/ it lately and it might be a potential solution! (feel free to ignore this if it's irrelevant lol)
I'll try it! I was just using cookies, but I guess it doesn't vibe with neocities or something lol
THIS LOOKS PERFECT THANK YOU SO MUCH
I totally agree with that sentiment of self-referentiality being super tiring. Those stupid 'discover' things on Android phones that you can't turn off are always 'news' sites reporting on some TikTok that somebody made and how people react to it, and somehow I end up clicking on them because I care so LITTLE about it, and the article is literally like "someone made a TikTok. Here are some comments on the video." ???
Things like that have been bugging me so so bad and I really could not figure out how to describe/explain it. However, I do enjoy discussion of the internet as a medium when it's a more personal reflection by one person rather than a weird monetization thing with no substance.
Agreed with that last comment! And holy shit I emphasize with your first. It drives me nuts. I guess the best we can do is try to influence our tiny internet sphere to be a bit better <3
I am really pissed about this. Please be careful what you post, as always.
