View Full Version : New Forum Stuff
October 23rd, 2010, 03:13 PM
It's not a lot, but I'll make you guys aware.
We've now got a reputation system, though I'll need to put some work into changing the default titles to something less... fabulous.
Also, we have social networking stuff. Use it!
If it gets some use, I'll add more.
Beyond that, the forums should be FASTER. View counts, replies, etc - all update automatically.
If you'd like to see this forum have something it doesn't, please let me know and I'll look into adding it for you.

I'm having a minor problem. Before the forum update each post stated when the last person replied. I like it that way but now it tells me when the thread was created. For example, "Started by Az, 51 Minutes Ago 11:13 AM". I'm more interested in knowing when the last person replied. Is there a way to change it in the settings? I tried to find it but I'm blind as a bat.
I tried 'Thread Display Mode:' under 'Thread Display Options' but it didn't seem to fix it. Any help would be great. Thanks.

When you're browsing a forum (not a thread), there is a column towards the right that lists "Last Post" with the elapsed time and the name.

Yeah I see that now. Thanks

I run a vb forum @ http://barkinghard.com/forums , I have way too many mods installed, but you may get an idea of something you want here. Some of the things you can't see unless you actually register and log in, like instant messenger.

Can we have a shout box?
October 24th, 2010, 12:37 AM
I loathe the idea of moderating a shoutbox, but this board has been fairly mature to this point. I suppose everyone is a bit older and less retarded these days. So yes, maybe.

Yea it probably will... Guess we could try it... Do you have the irc channel yet? It would be nice to start chatting with everyone...
October 24th, 2010, 12:45 AM
That is SO what the forum is for. I hate moderating IRC and I refuse to do it.

Still seeing an issue with the groups and the buttons overlapping. Don't know if you had tried to address that yet..
Oh, and as far as forum/social features go.. Will IPY have Armory-esq features? If the individuals enable it, of course. Would love to know what templates are mopping the floor with me!

Armory-esq meaning database for every character/guild etc online? Cos yeah... Interested :)

Armory and UO just seems so... wierd. I almost typed WoW instead of UO... and thats bad.
October 24th, 2010, 06:51 AM
ditto that's why I'm asking if that's what he means

UOSA's site is more in lines of what I'm thinking. It just lists a players skills and stats, what guild their in, and if they're online. Only if they enable the option, of course. Don't want to force people into it. It's essentially a better and working version of MyUO.
