phpBB3 Feedback Thread

Post by hellboy » Mon Jul 29, 2013 4:47 am

The transfer has been made. It looks like most of the posts have come across in the process - for those that haven't, well we'll just have to make do.

Plea use this thread to offer all feedback, complaints, feature requests, etc. I'm new to this type of forum from an adminstrators perspective, so suggestions are welcome.

Things noted so far:
  • Looks like time stamps don't quite match, so new posts aren't appearing yet. At this stage I expect this will sort itself out in 24 hours or so.
  • Looks like mileage will vary on login details. Some can and some can't log in. Try your username in both upper and lower case.
  • Subscriber only forum is password protected - it'll be turned back on once other fires have been put out.
  • You'lll need to re-upload your avatar. It can be up to 150x150px. Usual rules apply.

Well, give the reset password thing a go then. I can't explain it - I've had kittaan, crow and several of my test accounts all log in with no problems.

Thanks a lot Matt.
Well, some things never change. Your first posts on the new forum = whining.

Strange, not sure how to explain it really, as it appears there is no user called T00LFANFOREVER, let alone on associated with your accounts. All I can presume is that something fucked up with the import process (it was a painful one, and one I'm not planning on repeating at this stage).

Ok, I'm confused now - that's the old forum, and you're logged in as T00LFANFOREVER. Firstly, I'm not sure how you've logged in as that in the old forum. Secondly, what has that got to do with the new forum? Thirdly, did you reset your password on this forum, or the old forum?

Back on topic...

I was hoping that with the new forum (yet again) I might FINALLY be able to get the forum time to reflect my own local time. It's still not possible, as far as I can tell.

Helpful hint for anyone in the US: if you don't mind being a full day off, you may try tweaking the "My timezone:" setting under User Control Panel / Board Preferences:

For ex: I'm on the West coast of the US, and I chose "UTC + 9:30 Australian Central Standard Time". This gives me the correct TIME*, but it's a full day ahead. I can live with that.

*For some reason, it's still 1 minute off, but whatevs.

Yeah, I saw that password request for the Subscriber's thread. No idea. I'm sure Matt will fix it or provide a PW.

Then how did you know I should lose weight? (which was all the angle of the webcam btw)
Missed this before as I was whining about time stamps.

Bwahahahaha. As I told Crow in the Synctube chat earlier, maybe it's like your Avatar said about Monica... and you had a dozen cameras on you?

To answer your question: I clicked on the link you provided in that thread (fuck if I know which thread at this point) and lurked for a bit, got bored and left. Saw you and your buddies on screen, and somebody identified you. End of story. If you don't want someone to click on a link, don't provide it in a thread. Duh.

"Deptartment [sic] of Complaints" was intentional, wasn't it.

Once you get things sorted out, can "decorate" the place? Boring blue is boring. Love the new avatar Hellboy!

Decoration is on the agenda - just rocking the default theme at the moment.

"Rocking" is not a word I would use to describe this forum.

For a limited time I've opened the Department of Complaints forum open to guest posting. Once login issues have been taken care of it will return to normal (ie only registered users posting).

This is to prevent people registering an account just to say they can't log in...

I'm liking the new forum Hellboy. It looks so much better on an iPhone. The real question is: Does the search function work? 8-) I'm also having timestamp issues. I'm in the Eastern Standard timezone but for some reason it was still way off. I went with "[UTC - 12] Baker Island Time" which gives me the correct date but is still a half hour behind.
