Ch-ch-changes~ (Update Log) July 7

Post by aesta on Thu Jun 04, 2015 8:52 pm

Hi, everybody! Here's a list of changes I've made + planned future changes! Feel free to comment with any suggestions or feedback~

Updates as of 7 July:
  • Updated forum hierarchy/structure.
  • Site Rules are a global announcement now so they should be visible in all forums & subs.
  • Updated some forum- & sub-specific guidelines.
  • Announcements are now titled in red and stickies are titled in indigo so they stand out a bit more.
  • Added new categories to user profiles, like a write-in gender identity & pokemon types! Though this isn't news if you've checked out your profile within the past month, hehe.

click for the ghost of updates past:
Updates as of 5 June:
  • Signatures should work now. Go forth and slap your signature on some stuff! (N.B. You have to edit old posts & tick the "include signature" box for your sig to show up on past posts.)
  • Obvious layout changes are obvious. Please let me know if you have any issues with readability!
  • Links in posts are now bold so you can actually see 'em.
  • If a user is online, a lil online bubble should appear next to their username when viewing their posts! This is Very Exciting and was not worth the time I invested in figuring it out hoo boy.
  • Changed some forum names/descrips for clarity.
  • Introducing user ranks! Once you post 10 times, you get a lil member badge! There are also fancy badges for mods and global mods. OoOoOOooh, The Claw~
  • Removed "gender" category from all profiles, since it won't let me customize it to anything other than a binary. ;T
  • Added "zodiac" category to all profiles! It came with little pictures! I couldn't resist!
  • Enabled friends lists in order to enable the foe function! If you mark a user as your foe, they become completely invisible to you! (This is this host's ridiculously named equivalent of blocking.)
Planned Future Updates:
  • A TMS reg tumblr directory in the private forum
  • Figure out how to make [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] work on forumotion
  • Foe list lets you do pokemon battle with your rivals (probably need to learn magic first)
  • Write a Treehouse 101 overview with tips on bbcode maybe!
  • Fix private message padding (Sorry for the overlap!)
  • Add more fun categories to profiles (Hogwarts houses? Cute patronus sprites?)
  • Open applications for mods/global mods.
  • Figure out how to make a lil offline bubble appear next to an offline user's name when viewing their posts. ;c
  • Add more emoticons~
  • Figure out the points system and set up a points shop! Maybe one of the things you can buy is pokemon gym badges.

I was wondering why it only had two choices, and figured since the board was new you hadn't gotten around to adding more. Kinda sad that the gender binary is hard coded in and won't let you change it.

Also, are you able to enable tapatalk support on this? It makes reading the forums much easier on your phone

Unfortunately, it turns out forumotion has extremely limited mobile support, so tapatalk is not an option. 8(

But, I did figure out how to include a write-in "gender identity" field for profiles! Yay! (Also, pokemon types, which you can select & will now show up whenever you post. Might do Hogwarts houses next. Might be open to suggestion for any & all nerdy profile categories.)

Sensitive profile information, like birthday, gender id, etc. is also only visible to forum members.

I was hoping the foe function would mean I could mark someone as my rival and we'd do battle annually or if I've just beaten a gym leader.

Thanks for doing all this aesta! (Aww there's no hug smiley...I'm a notorious smiley overuser. I even made a whole set of bear smileys to use on our old WoW guild board. Ooh I still have them on photobucket...mwahaha...[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.])

Hehe aww, you're so welcome! c:

Also, BEAR SMILEYS?! If you link me to those, I could totally add them to our smiley panel. *plotplot*
