I have applied a hack to the forum code (scary!) and you should now notice that all of the QUOTE and CODE boxes now allow you to SELECT, CONTRACT or EXPAND them (just click on the relevant command next to the QUOTE: text at the top of the QUOTE box).

This feature lends itself well to PbP gaming as the DM often uses quote or code boxes for things like character sheets, background, etc etc. It can get annoying scrolling through a thread if a lot of the quote boxes don't relate to your character.

Also, and perhaps more importantly, this should allow a rudimentary HIDE feature were I can have "hidden" messages targeted at just one player.

Anyway, we'll see how it goes. If the general opinion is it should go then I'll remove it.

We've now also got strikethrough text! Highlight some text and click on the little 's' button above.

This can be handy for a lot of things. Plus it's fun to hack around with the forum code! Very Happy

Thanks guys!

Latest update: Corrected error in the forum code that occured after the last hack was applied. This was causing a problem when inserting bbcode tags when no text was selected.

Forgot to mention that last Thursday I hacked around a bit and applied a mod that should hopefully stop all of those pesky spam user accounts being created.

Since applying the mod I haven't had one spam account be created (I was getting 2 or 3 a day for a few weeks now!) so it looks like all is well.

Smile

Could the anitspam measures have stopped our auto updates?

The date kind of co-incides with the loss of that feature for my account.

Don't you love whiney users ::

But i stopped getting the update reminders ages ago (not long after we started) and now (about a week ago) i started getting them again. I started getting them again about the same time that Don started getting them again.

It is a mystery ...

What's even weirder is that I never notice when someone posts in any other forum except the in-game forum. I think I've got forum tunnel-vision.

Anyway, the auto-notification does seem to work for me so I really have no idea. As far as I can tell the anti-spam measure shouldn't have had any impact on the auto-notifications. It looks like it kind of turns itself on and off at will.

Maybe you could try re-setting the auto-notification and see if it sorts itself out?

Or try rebooting the machine? (Kidding ... we like to pay out on HelpDesk at work because this is their answer to everything. PC not working? Reboot. Files got corrupted? Reboot. Fire? Reboot.)
