Your message for example says Today at 08:58:43pm

And I have it like this: %d %b %Y at %R

so it shows with an older post:

30 Jul 2002 at 01:43

But it isn't as worse at it seems now, because I thought because the ampm stuff that the time difference between the board and me (9) wasn't calculated with that

Try %H:%M instead of %R. I believe the "Today" mod doesn't work properly with %R.

Also the board will be down for a bit tonight, probably around midnight MDT, for some backend database updates.

Ok the database has been updated. I added in some recommend changes to the table indexs that should speed up the loading of pages. Not sure if it will be noticeable but worth trying.I have noticed the pages load much faster... I guess it did work. :)

1 small thing, if you go to your outbox, and click on your link to inbox. It goes to the outbox, instead of the inbox

Changes that will be coming soon.Restrictions on modifying and removing posts. There will be a one hour limit given on removing posts and 1 day limit on the modifying of posts.Posts that are less then a certain number of characters, probably 10 or so, will not be added to the thread.Collapse categories mod will allow groups of boards to not be shown.Also a FAQ will be added to answer some of the more common questions I get.And a more long term goal is to add a better IM system will be implemented similar to the old one.

Awesome, I dont really mind the current changes, but as long as they help, i'm cool ;D

I dont know if we need a limit on the modifying posts, but a limit on removing them is reasonable.

Because I don't want to spend time looking through and approving uploaded avatars.

Looks also nice to me, except for 1 point. And I'm totally against that. That is the modifying only for 1 day. Sometimes I detect spell mistakes which make my post nonsense, and I detect them sometimes later then 1 day. Mostly I check my posts right when I posted. But sometimes that goes wrong. I think you let moderators being able to modify posts from people longer then a day ago. That's no point.

But sometimes I see that a link has gone wrong, e.g. when you upgraded the boards all links needed a url tag, and it didn't was like that before. So people might need to upgrade links. And also when they changed something so the link need to be altered etc.

And also if you need to delete an attachment if you have updated the version. You was the one who complained about a big attachment list.

Maybe you can make it like that that modified post are being recorded. So that moderators can see what the original(s) post were...

i agree, i would say not do the limit thing on both modifying and removing. But Gob, How do you make it so people can't upload their own avatars? Is that in display.php or Profile.php or what?

Profile.php, you just remove a couple lines of code.

Well there will be a limit on removing, I will look into the modifying thing though.

ok heres an idea dont know f its been passed around and hit before or not but here goes....

what about a chime or a whoosh like WW opening page, when the page refreshes or you go to a different page and you have a new message... I know the message system here is great but sometimes i miss it just cause i forget to look up all the time... If i knocw someone is on that im chatting with for a while i remeber to look up but if im not aware i can miss it the whole time I'm on and come back later that day with 10 new are you there? messages ;D but any way its just an idea ;D

and is that thing where you can collapse the forums coming back (after whoever finishes with the code/program)?

Gob, is there a way to alter the moved thread messages. I don't mean the message you write, but the link of where the thread has gone to. Like it was on the old forum. Maybe I know most forum numbers and which forum has that number, but most people don't.

It would be great if you could do that

And that thing about the moved thread message?

But I was too much in hurry to post before you so I couldn't say thanks for the bold thingy... Thanks :)

I can try, that shouldn't be too hard to do. Although it wouldn't be retroactive.
