Forum update

Post by bsmith » Sun Jul 12, 2009 12:21 am

I've just upgraded the forum software.

I've also added a "Karma" feature; So if you like someone's contribution, give them a point of Karma! You can hand out Karma once every 3 hours.

If you prefer the look of the old theme, you can change it back to subSilver2 in the user control panel.

cheers!

Hi Ben,

I'm looking through the user control panel but can't find a display setting.
What tab/option is it to change the display back to subSilver?

Cheers,

Try it now Paul. I haven't installed the "Karma" mod on subSilver yet, so I turned it off last night. :)

Stompy is getting all the Karma, I need to fix that! The Karma mod has a ton of bugs. :D

The nastiest disputes I've ever seen on message boards start when the 'karma' system is introduced.

It always leads to tears and people splitting away to form their own boards.

I like to think we have a mature enough user base that disputes will not become a problem; I can take away the negative thumbs if things get out of hand.

Personally, I like disputes. :badgrin:

What is Karma exactly? Is it just a tally of "thumbs up" and "thumbs down" that people have?

Ben

Is "View New posts" the same as the old "View posts since I last logged in"?

Obviously I can't tell immediately. If not, how do I get that bit again, please?

Anyone want to learn how to get lots of karma?
Just give me 1 Karma and I'll teach you how.... I call it the Pointy-tip-geometric-shape exploit!
