Prevent SHOUTING:

Prevent your users 'shouting' in their thread titles/message text by changing all-uppercase titles with at least this many characters to capitalization only on the first letters of some words.

Set the value to 0 to disable this function.

Disable this for some international forums with different character sets, as this may cause problems.

At this time, the forum does not automagically subscribe users to threads they've posted in, so going to that link (for me) brings up an empty screen :(

I have found another way to bring up all threads I've posted in, though. Click on your username in the upper right, next to Welcome.

Then click on Statistics tab.

Then find all posts by.

If you mean the two buttons under this quick reply window, I think you can never click those into a new tab on any forum, these are typical form buttons and can't be opened in a new tab as such.

Man, we haven't gone public yet and I'm already having trouble following all the stuff that's being posted.

More on the PM auto-notification box. I had one from rassin' frassin' G-pa T when I came back from lunch, and for once I wasn't in the middle of posting, so I clicked cancel, and it took me to the PM in the same window, like it's supposed to. I replied, and when I went back to the SMAC forum, it notified me instantly of a PM from same. I did same, and it wasn't a really fast response, but his last again. I repeated the experience several times.

I ran here to report. I like the PM auto-notification, but it's slightly broke. I'll keep you posted.

I got a PM an hour or so ago- without any auto-notification. Didn't notice it for 20 minutes. The notification at the top of the page needs to be larger or something, absent the pop-up- a place 'poly has it all over CFC, and here at Playahville. Care to to discuss what the deal is?

Somebody should finally take the time to change the format name from the questions-raising vbDrupal to to the unambigious weplayciv.com. Also some further shortcuts, right at the Google search results under the link to this site, e.g. to the forum or to the "About us"-page would be nice to see.

Of course I was refering to Krill.

I think this is a legitimate site issue:

I was trying to find Krill's post. So I went to the member's list and he wasn't listed.

I remembered the "please delete this account" thread and found a post of his and I was able to see his posts (is the deletion of the account a joke by Dale or is it the nicest moderator action post I've ever seen).

Dale [URL=http://www.weplayciv.com/forums/showpost.php?p=4227&postcount=14]said:

"Krill's account is disabled, but we can enable it again if he wishes to post here."

Back to the site issue. Even if a user is banned, could we leave them in the member's list so we can still find their posts?

eastsidebagel
04-05-09, 16:17
Back to the site issue. Even if a user is banned, could we leave them in the member's list so we can still find their posts?
So does that mean that Krill's original account is now really deleted forever? I thought that Dale just enabled it until Krill himself would give approval of opening it up again.

vyeh
04-05-09, 16:22
I don't think it is deleted forever, since I could access his posts once I found his avatar.

I think the member's lists excludes banned accounts.

And I'm not sure he is really banned (if he can get back in by asking, that doesn't seem to be a ban).

eastsidebagel
04-05-09, 16:37

And Krill's account has been banned as per his own request. He can always ask to be unbanned if he wants to in the future.

How do you approach the issue of spam-bots then ? Will they become automatically deleted in an ultimate sense, so that nobody could ever make a successful plea to open them up again and to use them in a normal fashion?
And are banned users (temporarily as well as as permanent) always absent from the member list?

Obviously only the account's owner can request an unban, if that was a voluntary ban. Spambots get banned and their names get logged. Besides, they're bots, it's not like they're going to write the admins a PM.

vBulletin removes banned users from the member list by default, yes

What exactly does that mean when you say that their names are locked (was that a typo in your post?). Like their accounts are totally nullified and cease to exist? And if yes, would a "human" user ever get the same treatment, so-to-say as an even more severe punishment than a perm-ban?
Sorry if my questions sound silly, but I'm really curious about this.

Solver
04-05-09, 22:35
I said logged, not locked. As in, we write down their names for reference. The treatment spambots get is that all their posts get deleted and the account is permanently banned. Of course, deleting all the posts on an account is something that would only get done to spam accounts.

Most mail servers were rejecting emails sent from the WPC server because there were no reverse DNS entries. We added a rDNS record linking our site's IP to the mail server and the problem was fixed as soon as the changes propagated.

Testing.... Locutus, you ******* ****** ******, good work.



In addition to busy subforums not bolding all the threads with new posts, I'm getting a lot of jumping past the first unread post in busy threads when I click "view first unread" -sometimes by several pages. I use that function a lot, and it's very annoying to have it broke about half the time.



The last PM I got late last night didn't give me an auto notification, and the open in a new window function is still broken. The later is not a big issue as long as I get the auto-notifications or the display at the top of the page gets a lot harder to miss.

Anything you guys want to share on this?

Found out the hard way the site requires 60 seconds between reporting posts when there were multiple spam threads on Site Feedback by Toobregor

http://www.weplayciv.com/forums/search.php?searchid=1913

Can we cut that time down?

It only takes 30 seconds between posts.

How about 10 seconds or make it 60 seconds between reporting the same post (to prevent inadvertent double clicking)?

It always helps to hit the report button (the ! inside the triangle under the name of the poster).

Since I particularly hate seeing these thread titles, I also tend to send PMs to moderator types.

I hate obnoxious porn type messages.

The subtle ad for viagra was so funny that it got great responses before and after it was sent to OT.

I think someone else already fixed this because when I check it was set to 30. It's the same number as for sending PMs unfortunately so we can't make it too low or we might get a problem with PM spam.

We'll be fine for now but will let you know when we need help.

There isn't really a way to tell the difference usually, although usually you can assume it's a bot, which in this case seems very likely as well.

One way to see if other people are having this problem is to see if there starts being a bunch of identical double post. Because of my experience at 'poly, I never resubmit a reply without checking in another window whether the reply went through. I suspect others won't do the same.

I don't think so.

Other than a little joke against BU that he overlooked, my posts have been administrative details setting up the first WPC SMAC PBEM with a new CMN (quite an accomplishment given the number of PBEM games set up at 'poly), responding substantively to a blizzard of interesting posts in the SMAC sections including a strategy primer to a new SMAC player (a rarity), keeping SMAC interests at the forefront at this site (I think Locutus is almost ready to reorder the site to give SMAC its rightful place after Civ IV and Civ V -- even though he is a SMAC hater), dealing with a tenacious spambot, contributing to the discussion of the SMAC ladder, and contributing to the development of the site.

As you know, posting wasn't my only activity. There was a lot of PMing.

MMC, problem, possibly theme-related. I noticed that my size-one-text Sig line wasn't displaying small in any of the themes. Then I noticed it was displaying wrong size in the default.

I opened my user CP and checked the sig size settings. Nothin'. When I emerged two levels up from here, I had the small-text display problem again. It wouldn't change back. I nipped over to CFC, and it changed back on command again.

My sig is still displaying full size for me. It kinda looks like something at this site is screwing with my browser settings. I wonder what's going on with that...

With great pleasure, my good Sir!
Lets say you want to respond to two seperate posts at one time. First, you click the multi-quote-button in the first post you want to adress in your own one, then the second one and so on. The order in which you click on the buttons of the several posts also determines the order of the posts showing up at your own, so don't just click on them arbitrarily.
When you're done with selecting every post you wanna reply to, click on the regular "Quote"-button of the last post you've included and every quote you've choosen so far to be in your own post will show itself at once.

If you want to spin off another site and move the existing AC forums into that, I can support that!

Who knows? If we can build a big enough fan base, maybe we might convince someone that AC 2 is viable enough that the ownership issues can be resolved. Maybe AC is like Star Trek (the cancelled series).

How about linking it to the [URL=http://www.weplayciv.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=19]AC Multiplaying forum[/b] or the general AC forum.

Later, when Locutus creates a separate Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri category below Sid Meier's Civilization Series, it can link there.

You haven't answered my question. In principle, are you averse to creating another SMAC forum if a logical separation can be made from the existing AC forum?

Here's a new one by me:

Most of the new-post-containing threads that piled up overnight were not only not bolded this morning, but didn't have the ‘view first unread’ button when I opened them.

Dale
13-05-09, 14:14
They showed for me. Clear your cookies, cache and internet history. Restart browser too. Maybe that'll fix it.

Buster's Uncle
13-05-09, 14:49
Okay, I did that, and the View First is back- even for threads where the only new post was by me. Some threads that have new posts since I was there last are not bolded, and none of the new ones from overnight in OT that I haven't checked yet.

I know you guys are working your butts off, but you know if I'm having a problem, lurkers and others not speaking up are too.

That's bad for business. Taking the attitude that it's just me isn't in your own best interests. I'm just sayin'.

PiMan
13-05-09, 15:43
I'm having problems with the viewing unread things too, but I think it is just because of the default settings for vBulletin.
If there is anything I don't read in one session on this site, and I leave for 15 minutes or so, then it will be marked as read. I vastly prefer the system used by CFC where it happens only after a week (but that is regardless of whether I've been on the CFC inbetween).

CFC is also similar to any board using phpbb or IP.Board based systems in this respect. (EDIT: And probably other forum systems, but I'm not familiar with any others myself)

But I think the real answer you are looking for is if a post is reported it could be depending on the content.

Okay, thanks for answering. :)

Just another one: Is it technically possible to delete an entire account, either by request or when the circumstances demand such an action? Have you ever done that too so far?

Dale, could you do a hard delete of this post (http://www.weplayciv.com/forums/showpost.php?p=15004&postcount=18)? It is a dp of #11.

The software finally tricked me!

Accounts can technically be deleted but I can't imagine why we would want to do that outside of some technical errors. If a person wants to be gone, we can just disable the account, same goes for spam bots.

I experienced a database error a few minutes ago. Previously to that I was getting a blank page every time I tried a WPC bookmark.

That was, once again, our very unfortunate wiki software. I thought it would only cause a minor hiccup for under a minute, sent the forums down for 15 minutes instead. Sorry! This particular issue won't happen again.

I hope not. Can I say that I hate that wiki software?!

What else is it going to do?

First dp's, now outages, what next?

(Where did you get that wiki software? It wasn't from any, uh, 'friends' from another site, was it?:))

I was trying to pst the following when the forum went down. (Fortunately, I got something done for Darsnan because of the delay.)

So yesterday I started wondering why it seemed like there was so much posting action on the 5th. It was only after several hours his morning it registered on me that someone had changed the date display to the more-logical-but-unfamiliar European standard.

Siiigh.

Look, I hate to be the Ugly American here, but junk like that is alienating to your core demographic and bad for business.

How come thread links are appearing like this

**Internal Linking (Threads)

instead of the word I assigned, e.g. 'thread'?

I got that for a few minutes yesterday afternoon.

I've also been getting instances of it occasionally for several days when navigating around the site or posting; then it loads fine on the second try.

With the subscription box, I sometimes get a problem where I will open the User CP in a different page, and my box is full of stuff that I have read and not read, without showing any distinction.

Because I have not been on my home computer, I have been logging out between sessions. When I log back in, the threads that have been updated since my last visit are not bolded.

Why?

I get that constantly, and I don't log out. I read a lot of stuff here, It's been going on for weeks and is a serious impairment of my enjoyment of the site.

I'm fairly sure it is a bug with vBulletin (that is possible to fix), because I know of a couple of other vBulletin forums that have the same problem. I know it is fixable because CFC doesn't have the problem.

A link I put up about an hour ago worked, but displayed broken. I had to edit so the words it was supposed to hyperlink in were visible.

What is it with forums having problems on Sunday? I'm asking. Wasn't it exactly a week ago that the hyperlinks broke last time?

The site has repeatedly logged me out during the last 24 hours.
I knew that I wasn't the only one to which this is happening! Whenever I play a long game in the Arcade or writing a long and rather time-confusing post in the Stories thread, the system keeps automatically logging me out after a certain time for an unknown reason. This is becoming pretty frustating, for whenever I play an Arcade game which goes on for longer than, lets say ten minutes, and finish with a score which could be saved in the High Score list, it doesn't let me do this for in the meanwhile I was already logged out! :mad:

I notices that updated threads are not appearing bolded in my browser. This happened when I arrived this morning and has also occured while I have been traveling around the site. (I started in MP, made a post, went to OT, then to Site. When I went back to MP, the Legion_prime/?/? thread was not bolded in my browser despite the fact that zsozso had made a post while I was gone.)
