  New Features
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 02-18-2009, 09:28 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (9)

I have added some new features to the board for you all to enjoy. Smile Here's a list of what's been added:

  • Two new themes, Sharepoint and Blue Sand. Blue Sand has also been made the new default theme (don't worry, I'm working on a new banner for it and hopefully will put it up in a few days).
  • That Roleplay forum you've always wanted. Here's the link.
  • A contact form. Not a major change, I just was tired of that mailto: link to my inbox.
  • A username history accessible from your profile page.
  • A referral form. This makes it easier to refer people to this board. You can access it here. It's also available in your UserCP.
  • MyAwards, which allows awards to be handed out to users. A list of awards can be seen right here. If you have any suggestions for awards, just post them here.
  • Social Bookmarking, which allows you to submit threads to popular bookmarking sites such as Digg, del.icio.us, StumbleUpon and Google Bookmarks. If you have another site you wish to bookmark to, post them here.
And that's all folks!

  Server move complete
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 02-08-2009, 12:12 AM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (5)

I have finished the board's server move sooner than I expected. Now we should no longer have to worry about any SQL errors (hopefully). I haven't yet added new themes or mods yet, I hope to start them tomorrow.

Although I transferred all posts, threads and members, I decided to prune several things, most notably thread and forum subscriptions (they were causing me some problems). If you have any subscriptions, you'll need to re-subscribe to those threads in questions.

If you see any errors, please post them here.

Big Grin Several Board Updates- 12/25/08
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 12-25-2008, 04:22 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (1)

Call these my Christmas present to all of you. I have made several board updates. Here's a list of what's been changed:

  • Avatar size has been increased to 120 x 120 pixels. Upload is still 25kb.
  • I have changed the user color of Administrators and Global Moderators. Administrators are now yellow and Global Moderators are now green.
  • I've added the location field to the post bit.
  • I've added a MyMood, which allows you to specify a Mood you're currently in. It can be accessed by clicking the MyMood in the header (next to the buddy list).
  • I've added a Video game forum and moved the general interests forums (TV, Movie, Books, Music and the new video game forum) to their own category, Holonet Network.
That's it for now, at least until I move this board to a new server and (hopefully) fix those SQL errors.

  New Clone Wars forum
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 11-20-2008, 03:01 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (3)

(Yeah, I should have added it 2 months ago but I got sidetracked and forgot) Blushing

For those who've been waiting, I've added a new Clone Wars forum for discussion of the movie back in August and the television show currently airing on Cartoon Network. All current threads about the Clone Wars have been moved there. The forum is located here:

  New Spoiler BBcode
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 11-03-2008, 09:05 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (1)

I've added a new BBcode for Spoiler posting. Smile

This BBcode will hide any spoilers (or any text you want) and if you want to read it, just click the button and the text will appear. When used, it will generate into this:

Spoiler
Here be a spoiler!

Use this BBcode:

Code:
[spoiler]Spoiler text here[/spoiler]

Also, make sure you have javascript on in your browser. Otherwise, it won't work.

  Welcome to MyBB
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 08-28-2008, 05:00 PM - Forum: Announcements - No Replies

If you haven't noticed by now, Galaxies Realm has been moved over to MyBB. Smile This has been a big job, and there's still some work to do, so I hope you hang in there.

Most, if not all of your settings and profiles should be intact, along with all of your posts, PMs, polls and some of your settings (remember to check your settings through User CP as there are new ones). If something isn't right, or out of place either post a new thread in the Feedback Council or PM me.

Read/unread post tracking
Topics now keep individual memory of if they are unread or not. It now means you don't have to read all topics in a forum in one go. Please note that if you don't read a topic within 14 days after the last post, it will automatically mark itself as read.

Multi-quoting
MyBB now has the ability to quote multiple posts. To use, just click the mutli-quote button on the post ([Image: postbit_multiquote.gif]) and click the reply button. All posts will be quoted in the new reply box. Happy

AJAX
This board now employs AJAX (short for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) which allows for the loading without the need to reload the page.
AJAX is used in the following places:
-Fast reply (page will reload if reply will go on another page)
-Quick login (regular login page is located here)
-Inline editing (when you click the edit post button you'll be presented with a menu to choose Quick or Full. Quick will allow you to edit the post in the Showthread page).
-Username form filling (when you start typing a username into the private message send to form, it'll automatically enter a username that best fits; a list will be brought up if there is more than one choice).

This was a hard upgrade, so I hope you all enjoy it.

  MyBB Transfer this week
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 08-23-2008, 07:58 PM - Forum: Announcements - No Replies

Based on user feedback, I am hereby announcing that Galaxies Realm will be converting to MyBB. With this conversion, we will be leaving our old, out of date, Invision Power Board platform and changing to the brand new MyBB platform.

I have finished most of my testing and converted most of the board data to MyBB and should be able to move the board by Friday (8/30/08).

While there really is nothing regular members can do but sit back and watch, can I ask that you restrain yourselves from posting polls until after the conversion. I ask this because I have to convert Poll information manually and it isn't easy.

  Several Board Updates
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 08-14-2008, 09:27 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (1)

In anticipation for our conversion to MyBB, I have started to make changes to the way the board looks and feels (in order to make the conversion process easier). Here's a list of what's been changed:

  • I have added a Bio field to your profile. In this field, you can type a short biography (1000 characters max) about yourself.
  • You now can see your own warn level and reasons.
  • I have added a Polling Booth forum where I will post topics on how to use the new features that come with MyBB. I have already added a new topic there, so check it out.
  • I have also added a Plug your Forum for advertising your forum, just remember to follow the rules!
  • Admin username color has been change to green and Mods have been changed to light purple.
That's it for now.

  How to become Staff
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 07-22-2008, 05:55 PM - Forum: Announcements - No Replies

If you're reading this, then you probably have an interest in being a staff member. To become staff here, all you need to do is:

  • Be active on the board (logging in, posting often and mingling with other board users). If you aren't active on the board, there is no point in you having any extra privileges which you won't be using.
  • A reasonable level of literacy (using proper grammar, spelling).
  • Follow the rules!
  • Be hardworking (helping others out and stuff like that).
Beyond that, you don't need any special skills or knowledge. Just be courteous. Be civil. Know your way around the board. Participate in discussions. Post new topics every so often. Best thing for you to do is to forget about ever becoming a staff member, because it's the people who don't think about it who get it in the end.

If I feel you are appropriate for a position, I (Starpaul20) will e-mail them stating the terms of becoming a moderator and what you need to know and. However, if I don't receive an e-mail back within 7 days, I'll assume you aren't interested in becoming a mod. The e-mail will be from the the address ([email protected]), and it will be titled "Want to be a Mod?"

Remember don't ask to be a staff member unless I either post an announcement saying I need some with an application to apply or I post a staff topic on another board. Otherwise asking will only decrease your chances of becoming staff.

  New BBcodes
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 07-18-2008, 07:56 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (1)

I have added some new BBcodes which can be used to enhance your posts.

The first is a simple text highlight, which will highlight text with whatever color you choose.
Example:
This text is highlighted

The code to use it is:

Code:
[hl=yellow]This text is highlighted[/hl]


The next is a code to center text. Although a center BBcode existed in the form of [align=center], I never liked that one so I added another.
Example:
This text is centered

The code to use it is:
Code:
[center]This text is centered[/center]


The next two are a Subscript and a Superscript code. Not sure of there usefulness, but they were on my old InvisionFree board and they were simple to add.
Example:
This text is subscripted

The code to use it is:
Code:
This text is [sub]subscripted[/sub]

This text is superscripted

The code to use it is:
Code:
This text is [sup]superscripted[/sup]

(Continued...)
