#1: Latest Changes - As of Most Current Post Author: BrotherTankLocation: Ontario PostPosted: Fri Jan 30, 2004 9:37 am

As you can see, there have been a number of changes made to the forums.... ie: Moderators added, and things cleaned up. I'm still working on the chat modification, as some people would prefer a popup window so they can continue to use the forums while in chat... It is being worked on.

You may find in certain sections that the "Subject" of a thread has changed, and that there is more information in the thread (with duplicate threads being merged). Some threads have been moved to other, more suitable areas. For the most part, everything is still there.

So if you see something missing... Give it a "Search" and I'm sure you'll find that it's just been renamed, or relocated.....

Well,

I needed a break from the Bunker... And took the time to fix the styles to a format that is a little more useable. I reformatted the view forums and the view topics templates.

@Ripper: I got rid of the numbers you hated so much.

@All:

Let me know what you think of the new look?
I'm interested in hearing your thoughts.....

Thanks Mr Green
But would it be possible to place the new buttons to the left of the quote, edit etc. buttons, as this would save some space? Or would this cause problems with smaller graphic modes?
I think those buttons were a very good idea, as they are much compacter than those text buttons and look nice, too Wink

What is it exactly about watching a thread? How will we be notified of changes?
And are the "next/previous topic" buttons really working as they are supposed to be? Does it go to the thread containing the next/previous chronological sorted post? This surely would be a good idea, for many people, but I guess, there are many people like me, choosing the threads they read very "carefully" (like I never visited the SoD forum yet Mr Green).
But for those the view latest posts option is quite powerful...

Ah, lost my point Mr Green So keep up the good work ;D

Moving the little arrow buttons won't really save any space, as very long topics will still wrap and cause a larger space to form. I tested this with some of the longest title posts that we have and it seemed fine.

As for the watching of posts.... I added that to the top of the page as well as leaving it at the bottom. If you look at the first post of any page of threads, you will see "Options: <Watch This Topic> - <New Posts Since Last Visit> - Previous Thread - Next Thread....

And then I generally cleaned things up, including the code for the tpl files. Give it all a try... I tested it last night and everything seemed to be working 100%...

Well, I think the changes are very cool! It makes the whole forum a bit more friendly and conveniant, so gets my vote...

Ok... now installed for those who like hard copies of certain threads...

You will notice the "Print Topic" button has been added...

If you click on it, it will bring up a text only style page (in a new window) that you can then adjust the pages that you want and hit your print button (or the one supplied on the page near the top)...

Enjoy

Yes, I don't notice when I post last few hours ago, and don't like ranks which one of members who spammed all over in nearly a year ago.

Yes, and over a year later we still have people spamming. Take Mikey... he posts for everything... I almost believe he is one of those people who has to have the last word. And then there are the new people who think that they can answer questions that have already been answered. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that that is spamming. But, it doesn't matter whether the ranks are there or not. All of that was happening without them... So..... This time I've taken the liberty to specialize them.

You will find some of them rather interesting to say the least....
I'll install a Ranks mod so you can see all the different levels....
I've updated it so that it now displays the rank when others view your profile. And there are a few more little items that I'm looking into either changing or installing.

I've rarely posted in the last month. Neutral Except today. And if anyone thinks I post to have the last word, that's bullshit. Not Happy

Rarely posted the last month? I counted 30 posts by you. That's almost 1 post per day for the entire month. That's hardly "rarely" posting. You've also posted 6 times today. Razz Cool

I was giving examples... I didn't say you were spamming now... did I... But your rank is held at post count exaggerated... only because there are many posts where someone says something and you wrote back... "That's Cool.... or I agree... or I like that too... "

If I thought you were a Spammer, I would have given you that rank...

The special ranks are ruling! I love ack's "master of mapping" rank. Smile Are you planning some more special ranks coming?

Oh, anyways.. a suggestion.. Maybe it would be better to have more space between each rank? Many of forum posters have around 200-300 posts, so they are Die Hard Wolfers.. and they will have more soon.. and they'll be still Die Hard Wolfers Very Happy. So maybe some more ranks, or more posts needed to go higher?

I would, but again, I don't want people spamming just to achieve the ranks.... I start to see it, and I assign the special ranks...

How does this seem cool to anyone? Can you say, "mean"? Not to mention senseless. Greg should get "Perfect Saint" for his utter perfection. He has no flaws whatsoever... Man I come back and theres a thousand retarded-ass modifications that do nothing, essentially, and Howling Wolf is gone... If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Can I have "Arch-Nemesis"? Or at least "Missing In Action" or "Pixel Master". How about "Beatle Fan". "Guitar Player"? Or "Dislikes Everything"? How about "Antagonist"? Or "Cynic"?

You got it... dislikes Everything... Nothing I can do is right in your eyes Zach... Never has been ... Never will be. And I've never said that I was the perfect saint. So... in the immortal words of the picture above this post... STFU!

All my life I have spent it trying to make others happy. Trying to be helpful when I can, and would give the shirt off my back if someone needed it.

You on the other hand, want everything your way.. and if it isn't then you find something to bitch about. You find something wrong with every person that moderates you, questions you, or even disagrees with you.

My advice... And this anger is stemming from the fact that:

1. You pull stunts like this all the time.. and I'm tired of it.
2. It's my birthday and no one has said even "Happy Birthday" to me...
3. My cat CC is lossing a battle because of a stroke... and is slowly dying each day.
4. The fact that all of this together has me so pissed off at life

Go Find Some Other Person to Abuse, And a New Place to Play. You are not wanted here unless you are willing to stop this infernal nonsence and the games that you are playing. Time to GROW UP my friend (and I mean that in a good way).

And please... No childish F'ing remarks when you reply to this as I know you will! Don't reply using Baby Talk or anything of the like as you have in the past... including the "Leet" shit. The game ends now. I win... You either get along and try to be nice to me and everyone else here... Or Get LOST!

Zach, I knew you just couldn't resist. Fact is that if you had read the thread completely, we don't know where the posts in "Howling" went to. It was Tristan saying "just delete it then" that made me say ok... it's gone. Yes, I mentioned it as one of the options.... But it was his say that made it so.

Honestly.... To me, it was just a waste of space, but I did it because I thought others would like it. Some did.... But mostly it was just bickering little whiners braging about how they can screw others, or picking on the way people talk / think.

This site is about Wolfenstein.... and the games that use it's source. Sorry that the choices I make don't suit you. But that's life. Personally though, I'd rather try to get along with everyone and find the good things about people and places like this. Sorry you can't do that.

I don't hate you as you seem to think. I actually think you can be a nice person when you want to. Unfortunately, you seem to think that I dislike you and take advantage of that when I do something or change something to not of your liking.

Face it... This isn't your place. You lied when you said you weren't going to set up forums... Because the other person you were working with said you in fact were. You can't even be honest. The only way for you to be happy is if you go and do just that... Set up your own forums. Do things your way. I hope everyone loves Anarchy as that is how I believe it would be (Fact is that I can't see many people leaving here for that, if you did). Otherwise.. You end up having to do the job I've been trying to do. Be the referee, try and do things that people want, while still trying to maintain some dignity for both myself and the forums.

Oh well... Why do you hate me so? Doesn't really matter to me... Just curious... and I bet everyone else is too. Why is it that when you don't get your way, you have a hissy fit? You did it with me... You did it with the moderators here.... You did it on previous forums.... You've done it to other members... Is the problem really us?

unbelievable Rolling Eyes these forums are great. the dessert storm skin is beautiful, the desiscion to remove the howling wolf forum was a good one(although i wasnt here when it happened), and the ranks are a great idea. i like how you dont just base them on post count, but also the way a member acts, or the things he does. i am very aprieciative that you have created a place like this(as well as the main site), and am shocked that anybody would feel otherwise. im sorry if its none of my buissiness as i have only been here a few days, but i just had to give you my two cents.


happy birthday Wink Cake
