Ah crud, I can't find anything for some reason...

It's so great my eyes hurt! No, not really, but this is cool, but enough so I'll have to get used to it all. Also, strikethrough's back up.

  • There still needs to be a Wiki link at the very top, but I'm sure you guys have that under control.
  • The search function isn't working for me for some reason. You might want to look into that (it tells me to specify words to search for, despite putting in proper words).
  • As previously mentioned, the old posts with the Strikethrough MOD do not function properly.

  • Wiki link will be added soon. There are a few things on the to-do list that we didn't feel necessitated keeping the forum closed.
  • The search function will take hours and hours to rebuild (when I ran tests, eight hours seemed like a likely figure). I'll have it rebuild the search list overnight soon.
  • Strikethrough seems to be working fine.

Wow, this looks a lot better than I expected. Good work admins!

(Still gonna take some time to get used to, though. I was reading through this thread and I'm thinking, "Oh, right, I was gonna make that post on the forum, I should go there now)

One suggestion: Is there a way to make the usernames at the top of posts a little bigger? They're kinda inconspicuous right now, as small as they are.

Post subject:  Re: Upgrade to phpBB3

I agree with Ju Ju about the usernames, as well.

A "Jump to Page..." thing would be cool, as well. Ed made one a long time ago for the old Forum as a Firefox extention, but I can't find where it went to now and it went relatively unnoticed.

Actually, I'm seeing a "Goto Page" option right next to the page numberings for the threads...

Yeap. I can't think of any time I would actually have to use that though. (?) I mean, I don't usually have an urge to go to page 149 of RT&I. But now I do. BRB.

So, I'm noticing what seems to be some avatar stretching here and there.

This-guy! I'm singling you out on this one because I remembered your name first, you haven't happened to have enlarged any of your avatars as of late, have you?

I'll have to get used to the new font sizes, as well. I tried changing my font size to 24 in another thread, and it came out as super-tiny. :P

(oh, and forget about the character number per-post question that I asked earlier; I misinterpreted something)

Author:  Dark Grapefruit [ Sun Jan 06, 2008 4:55 am ]
Post subject:  Re: Upgrade to phpBB3

I request: custom titles, quick reply, and a spoiler tag. All of which we have over at Court Records (as well as some sexy skins).

If I'm correct phpbb 3 uses %'s for fonts. So right now typing normally is 100, and it gets larger afther that. I think. Lets see shall we...

150

200

...so it would seem.

EDIT: I second Spoiler tags. A lot easier than quoting and changing font to white. Plus no accidental high-lighting.

200 is the biggest?

Okay, we get it. There's a request for custom titles. I wouldn't get my hopes up just yet though.

Spoiler tags are probably doable. I've seen 'em at xkcd and think they look a-mighty nice.

What about any custom BB Codes? I think they're pretty easy to edit in Here are a couple I thought of:

[wiki]Some Title[/wiki] = <a href="http://hrwiki.org/index.php/Some Title">Some Title</wiki>

[youtube]cOdEtHiNg11[/youtube] = <object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/cOdEtHiNg11&rel=1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/cOdEtHiNg11&rel=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>
Or would youtube embeds get too annoying and slow? I could understand that.

[wikipedia]Some Title[/wikipedia] = <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Some Title">Some Title</wiki>

And finally, I think one we for sure should have is a strikethrough one (strikethrough), because we had it before and all those posts won't show up right if there's no strikethrough tag now.
EDIT: Uh... never... mind. ;)

I think that an applaud system would be nice if we had it. (The +,- by posts)
I'm not going to cry if we don't get it, but I think we should have it.

Post subject:  Re: Upgrade to phpBB3

Alright folks. Pleased to be stopping with the asking for custom titles. We know you want them, we'll see what the admins end up doing. You may, however, continue to throw any and all other ideas at them, or at least until we get tired of hearing those too ;)

We... already have it.... you just used it... (?)

The other ones you suggested are a good idea. But how about something more like:

[wiki=title1]Ttile2[/wiki], meaning <a href=hrwiki.org/index.php/title1>Title2</a>

for those, with their respective templates.

I second that applaud system. In fact, I applaud it.

Good job with the conversion. Smooth transition, it seems. Looks rl rl slick.

I agree with this. It's always nice to know if people agree or disagree with your opinions, but don't have the time to post about it (it would probably work great in R&P with me).

Also, as some other members mentioned, having the Quote, Edit, and Delete buttons on the top of posts would be nice, but I wouldn't lose any sleep over it not happening.

I like this idea. A lot. It would definitely be something I would use all the time.

Yeah, I don't really mind that anymore. I've basically gotten used to it by now.

I think wiki tags are a good idea. I'll look into the best way to implement it (taking Ju Ju Master's post into consideration).

Youtune ain't gonna happen.

I don't get the deal with strikethrough not showing up for some people. Could it be a browser problem? (It's implemented differently now to be standards-compliant.)

I'm glad that one's not happening. That could get crazy. Think about opening up the YouTube videos thread... :eek:
Plus, it would just be a general annoyance, and eventually, when users start posting videos that aren't funny, or good in any way, everyone will just start to skim over them.

Yeah, I think it's possible to have both forms ([wiki]title[/wiki] and [wiki=title1]title2[/wiki]).

Are you talking about me? It actually did show up for me, I just assumed it wasn't there because I didn't see the button at first and I was too lazy to check in time. But, apparently the code was removed from Ju Ju's quote. I don't know whether he did that intentionally or not. :S
