Smile Arcade restored & 3 new forums
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 04-09-2009, 10:57 AM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (4)

I have (finally) added the Arcade back in with all the games the old one had. You can play it here. Biggrin

I also have added 3 new forums to the board. A Star Trek forum, for discussing Star Trek and a Doctor Who forum for discussing (you guessed it) Doctor Who. Both of these forums are subforums of Primetime T.V. There's also been a Competition Zone forum added where members can compete with each other.


  Email Validation Enabled
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 04-02-2009, 12:17 PM - Forum: Announcements - No Replies

I have decided to turn on Email Validation for this board, which requires any new members (or members updating their email address) to answer an confirmation email to be able to post. All current members do not need to validate, although this is a good time to check to see if your current address is valid and to update it if needed.

All members awaiting activation will have a Italic user name

In conjunction, I have altered the group promotion slightly, now all registered members have to have 10 posts before promoting to the higher member group. Also, all registered members under 10 posts now display as a normal black user name (formally they had an Italic user name). No other permissions have changed.


  Win a free vacation on me!
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 03-31-2009, 11:42 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (8)

Yep, to show that I'm a really nice person, I'm going to start a very simple competition. The prize for winning this competition is a full expenses paid vacation to the great Byzantine salt flats, which from what I heard are beautiful this time of year (especially considering Spring Break is coming Wink ). Oh, and supposedly this is the very spot where the prophet Muhammad buried the Sword of Damocles to hide it from Lord Voldemort.

You can win this exciting vacation by simply guess what number I'm thinking of. I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 1,029. First person to guess it right wins the vacation. Happy


  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:

http://galaxiesrealm.com/forumdisplay.php?fid=26


  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.
