Forum maintenance occurring soon

Post by Jeff » Tue Jan 12, 2010 9:27 pm

Hey guys, we are getting attacked by spam bots so I figured it's time to upgrade the forums -- the timing is not perfect, but it should go smoothly. :) As always, hit the live chat button (top right) if you need any help.

Still being unsubscribed from the message whenever somebody posts a reply - your reply to this thread for example has caused my subscribed to it to be removed. Nevermind, I'm quite used to it now :?

That was quick. The actual updates and stuff that you have in the other thread haven't occurred yet, right?

Bump. I see the forum evolving, so I guess it's time to talk about it.
  • Something is wrong with the profile php page. We're probably missing a semicolon or so?

    Code: Select all

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/wolfire-admin/public_html/forum/cache/tpl_wolfiregames_memberlist_view.html.php on line 100
  • Preorder signs! I really like the idea, but I think the current one is just a bit to large to fit in the design. Especially for profiles without avatars, the image is relatively large. Maybe it should be just somewhat smaller (matching line height)
  • There were some great idea's in this thread. We truly need a SSPF and sarcasm tags. :twisted:
And, as for some other subjects...

I agree with Black on the size of the preorder symbol. It is huge. Makes me feel a little bit embarrassed...
Then again, maybe it will fit in better with a new forum design, that was talked about already.

I think I'm going to let it sit for a day or two and see how it looks then. It does seem a little big.

I think that the gmail account I am using to send emails is filtering them before they are sent. I am going to try switching to a new email provider and see what happens.

So you're still generally working on some stuff? Like fixing profiles, adding preorder tags, and stuff?
