- I've deleted all old spam users, which means the forums should be a little bit quicker.
- I've created a new tag which should be used for all movie spoilers.
Code: Select all
[spoiler]Put your spoiler text here[/spoiler]
New stuff you can do includes (but is not limited to):
In your User Control Panel
- Manage subscriptions: manage which forums and/or topics you're watching
- Bookmarks: you can now bookmark any topic for further reference and quickly find them in the control panel
- Birthday: if you set your birthdate in your profile, you can be listed on the front page when it's your birthday. It also lets other know how old you are. You can of course leave this blank if you want.
- Choose how to display topics: in your Board preferences, you can choose to sort topics on some other criteria than last post time.
- Friends/foes: I don't know how useful this feature is but there is something called the Friends and Foes list, where you can add people. The most useful feature is probably being able to see which of your Friends are online.
- You can now send the same PM to more than one person, and do Blind Carbon Copies. You can also attach files, although there are some file restrictions (more on these later).
- As with posts, you can write and save drafts for PMs.
- You can create folders in your Inbox, and set up rules to automatically forward PMs following these rules to one of your folders. You can have a maximum of 4 folders.
- Pick an icon for your topic if you choose (please don't abuse this)
- More choices for font colour (please don't abuse this either; make sure the text is legible)
- Attach files (some restrictions apply); will come in handy in quizzes when you want to post an image. We're going to do this on a trial basis; if it's abused, I will remove it.
- The search has been improved. You can now choose which forums to search and where to look for your text string. I've also lowered the limit so you can search for two-letter words and two-letter usernames (you're welcome, JJ and Ze).
- HTML code now doesn't work. This means some old posts may look a bit funky, so if it's an important post you can let me know and I will edit the post in question. Apart from that, you just need to be aware that posting HTML code will no longer work.
- Avatar dimensions are still the same. The max you can have is 200 pixels wide, 300 pixels tall.
Stuff I'll do over the next few days
One thing people have been requesting for years is for me to add custom smileys from the Smiley Suggestion thread. I will do this in the next few days.
Anyway, that was quite a lot of information. If you have any questions, please post them in here or send me a PM. Same goes if you find something that looks wrong and you think I need to look at it.
Thanks again for your patience. I hope you enjoy the new and improved FilmWise Forums.
