Thread: LOP Forums Feedback

    LOP Forums Feedback

    Welcome back to LOP Forums.

    To answer why new forums : A hacker whipped LOP's message board server clean. (Internet Archive (Way back machine) really helped me.



    Changes

    - Only logged in registered uses can see the forums.
    -Disabled Visitor messages
    -Activity stream has been disabled
    - No links in the forums description for sub-forums
    These were eliminated cause either I wanted to limit links that spam can't latch onto or because I noticed in the admincp that visitor messages had spam caught.


    -Superstars forum switched with Live TV/PPV forum.
    - Switched General wrestling & ROH/Indy
    -Deleted polls/Rankings
    -Switched Current events & Sanctuary forums
    Nothing special just changing it up. Polls/Ranking were deleted, cause most forums have the polls option enabled.



    -No post count to enter FFA
    -No post count to start a thread (for newbies that
    Just tired of creating promotions. If it becomes a problem then I could create them (promotions) in the future, but I hope not.


    -Disabled Groups.
    I almost forget we have these groups. No one mods them, and quite frankly because it's tucked away I had concerns with it getting spam undetected.


    New Human verification
    Key Captcha I registered at stopforumspam and they use this. I liked it and asked Painlord if he could download for LOP from the key captcha web site. BTW. The reason I joined that forum was to get a new API key. Plus it's one the better spam fighting sites on the web.


    I may go over board with some of the changes, but I'm sick of putting the forums together. I hope they help.

    I just have one question, why does my account log me out every time I click a new link? I click sports and then I have to log back in to access it. I even had to refresh and log back in to reply to this message.

    Clean you're cookies re-log back in. See if that helps.

    Maybe if your cookies are still set on the old forums there maybe a conflict

    Thanks so much for putting everything back together Terry! Appreciate the hard work.

    One question, seems the option to put pics in the sig is no longer there? I tried to do it with the [IMG] coding as well but no luck. Just wondering if this is an intentional choice, a setting that is turned off, or if I'm just having personal problems.

    Good job getting everything back together Terry!

    Are we not allowed to have avatars right now?

    Can we get the 10 character minimum changed back to 5?

  11. #11
    Add a few ..... I don't really want to change much now if I can avoid it.

    Is it possible to get links to each subforum (e.g. Live TV/PPV or Video Games) up front again? Liked not having to navigate extra pages to find what I was looking for.

  19. #19
    No. They were left off on purpose

    Pics still aren't working in sigs. I cleared my cookies and restarted FireFox.

    Your avatar works. That's the important part.

    It could be either file size (which I just updated) or it could be firefox.

    Glad to see the fourms are back up.

    I've upped the sig size to where it says in the rules.

    Also the maximum post count should now have no limit

    Terry, you're a legend. Things seem to be running smoothly so far. My spoon is too big, but I don't think that's an error related to the forums.

    Haha. Very true. It used to be bigger but the new size limit won't allow for the old one. Do you only show up when the board is reset to make sure I still have my Keri Sable avatar? I swear I never see you post anywhere/time else.

    And it must be Firefox as to why I can't get a pic in the signature. I dropped the image down to like 114x100 and that still didn't go. The preview was just the web address.

    I had a small question--before we could upload more than one picture to the sig area, but now it seems we can't (unless I'm just stupid and don't know how). Will this be fixed in the future? No rush, just wondering.

    Even if it is, I will be cracking down on those exceeding sig size. I was getting angry at the amount of giant sigs I was seeing before the reset.

    Good to see sigs back. Thanks a bunch.

    I vote for no multiple pics in sigs. I don't care that you won a prediction contest for a fake sport, let alone a contest that took place six months ago.

    edit - I must be doing something wrong. I still can't get a picture to work in my sig, it just shows up as a link.

    Such a minor question and not really a big deal, but can we get back the custom user titles? Or is that disabled forever too?

    Being as I'm an admin, I might have access you guys don't have. But I changed my user title in the edit profile section, not in the avatar.
