Forum Updates

Post by JerriLeah7 on 3rd August 2011, 7:13 pm

Okay, members. Here are the newest forum updates to avoid confusion:

-- Increased Forum Font -- The overall font on the forum is now larger to make things simpler to read. This includes font in spoilers and quotes, as well.

-- Content Select Button -- There is a button above codes that now allow you to select all of the code content and highlight it all in one click without having to drag the mouse over it.

-- QotW Username Feature -- The member with the QotW will have a glowing username for the week that their quote is posted on the portal.

-- Forum Tab Title -- The forum title on the tab no longer has "Free Forum" written before the actual title.

-- Quote/Spoiler Font Color -- The automatic font color is now white and no longer black/gray, making it much easier to read.

-- Profile Availability -- Guests can no longer view member profiles.

-- Topic Description -- Topic description feature is now enabled for all members.

-- Rules Updated -- Rule #13 had been added to the forum, so be sure to check it out.


If you have any questions or comments regarding these updates, feel free to post them here.

I have now installed another new feature on our forum. =)

-- Font Colorbox Editor -- When clicking the font color box, you will no longer see the list of color names. You will now see a larger box that gives you a much larger range of colors to choose from. This feature is available both on the quick reply and post reply options.

-- Colored Ranks -- Members can now have their custom ranks colored if they have the prerequisites. The information about this can be found in the Gateway Member Ranks thread.

Enjoy!

For anyone who is sick of the lovely GtR emails that bog down your inbox and send you replies and messages over "watched topics," you can do the following to put a stop to the emails:

Step 1:

Go to your profile -> Preferences Tab

- Always notify me of replies: No
- Notify on new Private Message: No (depending on preference)

Step 2:

Go to your profile -> Topics Watched

- Click on "Select All" or you make a selection selective
- Click on "Stop watching selected topics"

Forum Updates: June 05, 2012

-- Quick Reply Hide -- The "Quick Reply" section is now hidden from underneath topics from view until the button "Quick Reply" is clicked. This will then toggle the view and allow the quick reply editor to be visible.

-- Multi-Quote -- When clicking the "quote" button at the top of a post, the quoted post will show up in the Quick Reply editor. This works the same when multiple quotes are pressed, allowing for the multiple quote function without a multi-quote button.

-- Affiliate Widget -- Our affiliate widget on the portal has been edited to show a scrolling feature that improves the visual appeal to our portal.

Forum Update: June 06, 2012

-- Skin Update -- The skin has been changed, obviously. The background image in the banner does not belong to me. The forum icons do not belong to me. The image on the "Who is online?" icon, which is knows as "Tribal Dragon," can be found here: deviantArt Page

Permission has been given to use this image. I hope you all enjoy the new skin and have a wonderful time on the board.

Forum Updates: August 27th, 2012

-- The "Points" System has been added. -- These points are also called "Gold Pieces" in your profile and they will be rewarded per post in certain forums in the Gateway--you'll be able to purchase certain features in the future with your gold pieces, so be sure to save up!

-- The Reputation System has been added. -- You can now "like" the posts of others to give them a reputation. You can give negative votes, but this will not lower their reputation, so the function is useless.

Forum Updates:

One
Just read the information listed below on the English Support Forum, please!
http://help.forumotion.com/t126729-new-features-upgrade-of-forumotions-notifications-center

Two
The Category Toggle feature (the little +'s and -'s at the end of each category) has been improved, as I've changed the Javascript coding so that when used, it does not change upon refresh. In other words, when you refresh, any hidden categories will remain hidden this time.

Topic Icon Updates


A new topic icon system is in place, as of this evening. The statuses for this new system are listed below, as well as an explanation as to when they can be used and who can use them.

In Progress
This status is available for use by administrators only and is intended for the "Bug Reports" section. If an administrator is working on a bug or forum issue that you have reported, you will know that it is being worked on at the time. This also means that the issue is not yet resolved and should therefore not be archived.

Resolved
This status is available for use by anyone and is also intended for the "Bug Reports" section. If you have reported a bug and it is no longer an issue over time, you may feel free to mark it as Resolved with this icon and a staff member will know that it can be closed and archived.

Role-Play Paused
This status should be used if your role-play or a role-play that you are participating in is on hold due to the inability to return for a good amount of time. Having this status placed over your role-play threads will prevent staff members from archiving your role-play threads for up to an additional month, but should four months go by in total without a post, it will be archived, regardless. Only RPM's or RPH's should use this icon.

Register, Please!
If you are a role-play maker or helper and desire some new members to join your role-play, feel free to use this status to let others know so that they can take a look and see if it interests them. Only RPM's or RPH's should use this icon, though a member can do so with the RPM's permission.

Role-Play Closed/Finished
If you are no longer running a role-play, regardless of the reason, feel free to use this icon on all threads that involve the role-play and a staff member will be sure to archive it for you as soon as possible. Requests to have it removed back into the open at a later date will be accepted. Anyone can use this icon, though permission by the RPM is required.
