  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...)


  Admin Validation enabled
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 06-24-2008, 11:16 AM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (1)

Due to the amount of spam bots we've been getting, I have enabled Admin Validation to help filter them out.

Sorry if this causes an inconvenience to any legitimate people joining.


  Transfer to new host- complete
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 06-11-2008, 11:49 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (4)

On Saturday June 14th June 21st, I will be transferring the board to a new web host. During the transfer, the board will be unavailable for most of the day due to how long it takes to transfer DNS settings.

Our new host has more bandwidth (not that it's been a problem) and SQL space (which is starting to become a problem).

Not to mention that our current host doesn't support PHP mail() which prevents emails from being sent.


  Board Open
Posted by: Starpaul20 - 06-05-2008, 02:40 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (3)

I've decided to open this board to registration and posting. I hope you enjoy it. More forums and skin sets will be added in the coming weeks. A banner for this board should be coming within the next few days (hopefully). Cool

If you have any suggestions, post them in the Feedback Council.
