Forums and You
« on: 05/15/10, 12:13 PM »

   Since iPage updated our hardware, our admin pages got blazing fast, which means I had the chance to upgrade some basic functionality on the site without pulling my hair out.


    


   Amongst many small things, I added Smiley recognition and BBCodes. I strongly recommend everyone to go read this page to gain a better understanding of what code snippets are supported in our installation.


    


   Enjoy!

   On a side note, I finally managed to get the Recent Posts block to refresh itself without refreshing the entire page. It's now set to refresh every 2 minutes, and then there's the force refresh button too on the top right corner of the block.


    


   The Polls and Who's Online blocks have auto refresh as well, set to 5 minutes, but the force refresh is disabled on them.

   So I expanded our forum protection to spam filtering too, and when I reported that one "Create Dream Houses" thread as unsolcited advertising, it automatically deleted the thread. Aiza should post his stuff again so we can continue making fun of h....erm, I mean, continue discussing it without interference from spam posts!

   I am saddened I wasn't able to see the plethora of replies that no doubt came while I was sleeping.  Plethora!

Sweaty doesn't realize the post is from TWO YEARS ago, and support for a lot of modules have been discontinued because our forum architecture is outdated as fuck.

It would be nice for someone to take it upon themselves to fix this thing (or build a new site to migrate to) because I really don't have time to manage this anymore. I keep saying it but everyone's blowing it off and then complaining that we have spammers.

We have a Facebook page, actually. Hasn't been touched since the end of Cataclysm.

I think both me and Criph are admins. I just made you a "Content Creator" on the FB page. Go upload killshots and updated or w/e you like, but make sure to change into "Use Facebook as The War Council" before you post anything. The option for that is in the settings pull-down menu, top right corner.

I'm too stupid to even color code my sock drawer, let alone build a website

Quite frankly, until we get something new I couldn't care less if we have to use facebook to do whatever. I'm making a throwaway account for it, because I mean, come on.

You should integrate Napster on this website.  Get with the times yo
