The "Twitter" thread from the top box can now be found in The Rec Room instead of General Discussion.

I changed the who's online time from 120 minutes to 10 minutes, so don't worry, we didn't get a sudden drop in activity; it just wasn't useful to see who was online two hours ago!

Quotes have been removed pending an eventual revamp, and the rooster has been removed from the logo.

New bbcode for comments. Allows you to add helpful reminders, placeholders, or posting templates to threads without them displaying as part of the post itself.

Syntax:

[x]This doesn't show in messages. Only really you will see it when you come to edit your post.[/x]

Things within the comment don't get parsed at all.

Just something useful that we can use in posting templates and that people can use in project threads and such to point out things to them for later editing.

Homepage edits. Fixed the spacing between blocks and stopped large images breaking the boxes. Removed "top five posters" as it's really not needed.

Rules Changes

viewtopic.php?p=612930#p612930

I have updated the rules slightly. Fixed some typos and removed outdated rules ("No posting recruitment threads" when we have a recruitment forum).

Dead links

Have added some hard censors to posts.

xieke links now go to their new host (webgel.net). Many thanks to Tom Scheper for hosting it.

hbgames.tk links now go to .org but are mostly broken anyway. Apologies for that whole cafuffle, but it's over now.

Dice

The dice that appear in forum games under posts can now be accessed in posts themselves.

Put {DICE} in a post and it will be replaced by a random number between 1 and 6, fixed to that post. (i.e. 4)

I have removed three dead affiliates as their links went nowhere. If anybody does wish to affiliate please drop a link and we'll discuss it and come back to you.

I added the game of the years we voted on to the homepage to add a bit of colour.

The top search bar now allows you to choose between forums, resources, games or scripts, although it should be known that advanced search (by clicking "search" in the top menu) is always the best form of searching the site - and you can do additional options such as only looking at topic titles, first posts, etc.

I have generally cleaned up the forum page.

- enlarged font for forum names
- de-emphasised forum descriptions
- reduced sometimes paragraph length descriptions to one line only
- hid personal forums by default
- uncluttered the announcement box
- removed the word "subforums"

I am not sure how or why, but a lot of links got broken in old posts (pre 2009). I have hardcoded two fixes for this, but will try and find out what broke them in the first place. They should work now, and I apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused. (Surprised they haven't been noticed sooner).

I've added some red buttons to the homepage, not sure how they look. Just emphasised some things and added some other links.

To be honest, and maybe it's just me, but the homepage seems WAAAAAAAAAAAY too busy, today has been the first time I've seen it in weeks, lol.

Probably a fair cop, I dunno.

I neatened it up again anyway and made the QJ box fancier.

I've started remaking the game engines page.

page.php?p=downloads

(Done the landing page, I mean, not the individual pages, which are awful.)

Just to remind myself; I added a big red "join us" button because from feedback people don't know how to join. But on following it I was greeted with a tiny text registration page that is just a lengthy, wordy user agreement with a tiny button beneath it. Nobody's going to read that. I'll remake it later when I get back from twerk.

Thoughts on the screenshots gallery:

- Numbers are unsightly
- No link back to the game you came from
- Author text is a little small so it's not immediately obvious who took the pic
- Title too small

Will try and work something out.

Here's what an individual game's screenshot gallery looks like with content:

search.php?keywords=78108&terms=all&author=&fid[]=325&attr_id=0&sc=1&sf=titleonly&sk=t&sd=d&sr=topics&st=0&ch=300&t=0&submit=Search&ss=1

Game engines page needs redoing, all of the images are dead and the info a bit brief.

I have simplified the forum index footer (the box with birthdays and stats in), there was a lot of pointless text.

Video embed codes seem to be properly broken. Though my guess is rather that we're at capacity with data, as there's just a blank where videos should be, and from what I've seen, some... still work.

A techie will have to look into it, I've only got what my own experimentation and regularity has afforded me. This has been an issue since about april?

I'm gonna laugh my ass off if my zeal for embedding videos put us over capacity. Until the issue is resolved, I'll resort to providing links.

Edit: Upon further investigation, it seems all video embeds have been destroyed, though the original posts can be edited and the embed code still found, all it does is show nothing.

In other words, for once something isn't my fault! xD

Ah I forgot about that. Whoever coded the original embed code years (a decade!) ago did so very insecurely so I disabled it a few years back unfortunately.

But...

It worked fine a month or so ago?
