  Board Updates- August 2017
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 08-09-2017, 03:47 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (9)

I've been neglecting this site for a while now, and I've decided that to get this site going again, some changes will need to be made.

- I've decided to abandon the Star Wars theme for this site. If you have any suggestions for a new board theme, please suggest them here.
- I've renamed the Spaceport forum The Welcoming Center and the Holonet News forum Announcements.
- I've removed the point system. It's been causing me some issues due to the fact it's not 100% compatible with PHP 7. Not to mention it served no purpose. I hope to bring it back once the site gets going again.

That's all for now. I hope to get this site a proper styling soon (so long as we don't keep getting the bandwidth problems we've had for the last 3 months).

  Account compromised
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 04-27-2016, 09:49 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (6)

On April 20th, somebody gained access to my account and logged into the Admin CP. Though they don't appear to have done any damage, they did manage to download a backup of this board's database.

I have already taken security precautions to prevent this from happening again (changed my password, activated 2-factor authentication for both the Admin CP and my Email accounts, banned the IP address of the perpetrator via the server and some other things). Though I'm confidante they don't know your passwords (they are hashed in the database), I would recommend changing them anyway.

  2015 Updates
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 01-04-2015, 03:21 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (1)

Welcome to 2015, everybody.Yoda-smokin

As most people have noticed, the site has been effectively dead for weeks now. I'm hoping to get things going again. So if you can post, please post. I'm going to start promoting this site later this month in hopes of attracting more members. I also hope to add other things too.

New Theme: I know I still haven't gotten a good default theme yet. I hope to fix this soon. In the meantime, I have added a new theme called Dark1.8. You can select it in the footer.

Some of the new features include:

  • Quick Theme Changer- You can now change your theme from the the footer of the board.

  • And much, much more...

I have also dropped all of out old themes as they were out of date and causing me problems. New themes should come in the coming weeks.

Please note that a few things still need to be set into place, so bear with me. Yes

P.S., I know about the rating bug on the arcade index. I hope to fix it ASAP.

  Social media presence
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 01-04-2014, 04:42 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (4)

For 2014, I have decided to give us some social media presence. As such, I have created Galaxies Realm a Facebook page, a Google Plus page and a Twitter account. Be sure to like and follow us on each.

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/galaxiesrealm
Google Plus: https://www.facebook.com/galaxiesrealm
Twitter: https://twitter.com/GalaxiesRealm

I've also put links near the bottom of the board (just below the second ad).

  Replaced Credit system
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 02-22-2012, 06:28 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (3)

I've decided to replace the Credit system with another one. The old system, while fine, was getting old. The new system is much more flexible.

All credit rates are still the same.

Here are the changes:
-Credits have been renamed Points.
-Points are now decimalized.
-You won't earn points on new Attachments or Calendar Events. Other rates are still the same (See here for rates)
-You will now earn 0.01 points per character posted. Your post however must be longer than 20 characters before you can start earning points per characters.
-Bank interest will be earned every week now.
-A new Lottery system is included. You can buy tickets here.

Any questions you can ask here. Happy

  Arcade upgraded
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 10-20-2011, 05:16 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (10)

For the past few months, I've been working on a new arcade to replace the old one. I'm proud to announce that I've finally finished it and have added it here. I have converted all scores and other data to the new arcade.

If you spot and bugs or errors, please report them here.

  Board Updates: 4/8/11
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 04-08-2011, 01:36 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (5)

I've added some new things to the board:

-I've added a Star Wars Events calendar, which I will post Star Wars-related events (like new releases). The calendar is located here
-I've added social site links. Whenever you fill in your username on various social sites (like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc...) a link to that profile will appear. You can edit your site here
-Fixed the bug with the ICQ IM icon linking to a broken page. It now links to the person's ICQ.com profile.
-I've shifted some permissions:

  • Usernames can now be changed at 10 posts. You must still wait 48 hours between changes.
  • Undo Thread Rating and Undo Vote are now 100 Club abilities.
  • Users under 10 posts can not play games in the Arcade (due to spam bots playing).
  • Users under 10 posts can only store 10 PM messages and cannot track sent PMs.
-I've added 10 more Arcade games: Coins Mystery, Checkers, 1-i, Chinese Checkers, Classic Video Poker, Frogger, Klondike Solitaire, Polar Breakdown, Texas Holdem Poker and Texas Takedown.

That's all for the changes for now. Also of note, I have payed the site through the rest of the year.

I'm also working on an upgrade to the arcade, as the current mod hasn't been supported in almost a year and it's coding is rather old and out of date. I'm hoping to upgrade it in a month or two.

  Board Updates: 1/11/11
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 01-11-2011, 09:40 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (6)

Since it's a new year, I've made a few changes to the board:

-A Bank has been added. The bank allows you to create a saving account where you can deposit your credits and earn interest on them. The bank currently pays a 2% interest rate every 30 days. Accounts are also charged a 1/2 credit maintenance fee every 90 days. Anyone over 10 posts can open an account.
-Quick reply is now advanced, with the ability to add emoticons and BBcodes with ease. This has been requested many times.
-A return to top button on posts, just like the one that existed on the old Invision Power Board board. Please note the icon for Blue Sand theme isn't finished, so a temporary one is in place. Other themes have a normal icon.
-Upcoming calendar events are now shown on the index.
-You can now undo your thread rating. If you've rated a thread, a link to delete that rating will appear next to the rating stars. This is available to anyone over 10 posts.
-A "courtesy edit time" now exists. If you edit a post within 60 seconds from when you originally posted that post, the edited by legend won't appear. Any edit changes are still logged.
-A 6 hour time limit now exists for users under 10 posts. This is a safely measure to stop spam bots from editing old posts. All users over 10 posts remain unlimited.
-Instant Messenger icons now appear on a user's posts if they have any IM fields filled in.
-The Spoiler BBcode has been updated with a new design, like so:

Spoiler
Darth Vader is Luke's father!
Spoiler also now has a optional attrubute for specifying where the spoiler comes from, like so:
Spoiler: Empire Strikes Back
Darth Vader is Luke's father!
The code to use it is:
Code:
[spoiler=Empire Strikes Back]Darth Vader is Luke's father![/spoiler]

That's all for the changes for now.

  Welcome to MyBB 1.6
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 08-28-2010, 08:13 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (10)

I have updated the board to the newest version of MyBB (1.6). With this update comes some new features but most importantly a new theme.

Some of the new features include:

  • PM searching- You can now search though your private messages.
  • Undo poll vote- You may now delete your vote(s) in a poll if you have previously voted. This ability is available to anyone who has over 10 posts.
  • New video BBcode- MyBB now has a new video code that allows you to post videos from 7 different video sites (YouTube, Dailymotion, Google Videos, Metacafe, MySpace Video, Vimeo and Yahoo Videos). A button is available in the posting toolbar.
  • Buddy-only PMs- You many now choose to only receive PMs from users on your buddy list. Set in options.
I have also added a few new mods, including a PM reporting system and a Donation form. One other change I made is a new Anime Zone forum, for discussions about Cartoons, Anime or Manga. Hope you enjoy.

Please note that a few things still need to be set into place, so bear with me. Yes
