  PMing on the forum...
Posted by: shadowzx3 - 06-19-2010, 12:44 AM - Forum: Site Support/Updates - Replies (4)

Can we maybe get everyone's PM box working properly and maybe emptied? Maybe its only mine but my box is full and I cant do anything to fix it.

I love when people change things for the better but hate when it happens and functionality is lost in the meanwhile...

little frustrated

  how would you like to embed video like youtube?
Posted by: darkpuppet - 06-18-2010, 12:58 AM - Forum: Site Support/Updates - Replies (3)

As most of you know, we have a bbcode tag, [youtube ] that allows you to embed youtube video into a post.

The thing is, not too many people use this code... so the question is... would it be preferable to just search for a youtube url in a post and replace it with the embedded video?

that way you'd just type

Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W61YjYW5zhY&NR=1
into the post to get

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W61YjYW5zhY&NR=1

or would you prefer having to use the bbcode?
Code:
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W61YjYW5zhY&NR=1[/youtube]

or

[youtube]W61YjYW5zhY[/youtube]
to get the video.


what are your thoughts?

I currently have all three ways of embedding youtube enabled... if you don't wish to have automatic embedding of youtube and would rather force the use of the youtube bbcode, let me know.

  Site Maintenance Starting Sunday May 2
Posted by: darkpuppet - 04-10-2010, 03:35 AM - Forum: Site Support/Updates - Replies (51)

Just wanted to let you know that I'll be looking to perform the first phase of our site migration starting Sunday, May 2nd at noon.

At this time, the forums will become unavailable while we migrate to the new forum software.

The migration will preserve all of the posts on the site, however, you will lose all your Private Messages.

Please take the necessary steps required to backup your PMs before May 2nd. We will not be responsible for any lost PMs as of May 2nd.

The site should be back up sometime on Monday, May 3rd.

thanks!

  Various Site Changes And Major Update Coming Soon
Posted by: darkpuppet - 03-03-2010, 01:43 PM - Forum: Site Support/Updates - Replies (23)

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to throw up a quick post to let you know that I'm starting final prep for moving the site to new board and content management software on a new hosting provider.

Please note that you may see some changes to this site (ie, forums being reduced/combined) leading up to the launch of the new site.

Please feel free to post any issues that may crop up in the meantime. If all goes well, we'll be pulling the switch on the new focuscanada.net in early April!

  Time Is Off By One Hour
Posted by: paolo - 03-01-2010, 02:20 AM - Forum: Site Support/Updates - Replies (2)

the time is off by one hour.

its 11:19 am and it says the last post was > noon. i think it has something to do with the US goverment imposed change on daylight savings time.

what do u think? ive seen other forums that run ubb code have the same issue. someone should check with vbulletin or ubb to see if theres a patch? or is the server that its running on in someones basement have the wrong CPU time?

  Ads By Google
Posted by: Focus man. Focus. - 03-01-2010, 01:28 AM - Forum: Site Support/Updates - Replies (13)

Is it only me or is everyone seeing the "Ads by Google" at the top of every forum page? Not that I am complaining but it is covering the Focus Canada link which takes you back to the Main Page. Can we move this link elsewhere?

  Team Pita Has Been Disbanded
Posted by: darkpuppet - 06-03-2009, 02:11 AM - Forum: Site Support/Updates - Replies (27)

The Moderating team and I have decided that it's time to end our social experiment with team PITA and disband the group.

Team PITA was initially introduced as a way to give back some personal ownership of the board to members and allow a healthy outlet (and warning to others) of some of the more outspoken members.

Unfortunately, it's degenerated to a point the moderating team no longer appreciates, and as such, we're forced once again to limit certain freedoms on the boards.

Please keep in mind that we don't mind people having opinions here and expressing them -- and in fact, it's alright to tease fellow members and be teased -- as friends.

As such, we should treat each other with the respect and dignity we would our own close circle of friends. It's alright to not always get along, but if you have a beef, keep it to handicapped parking -- it's no-holds barred there, and that remains true -- truly offensive behaviour outlined in the rules is absolutely forbidden.

Blunt attacks and trolling are no longer allowed in any regular forums, and you will find your posting priveleges suspended.

We do have a warning meter system here, and if you top it out, you will be perma-banned from the site.

Let's keep the site fun, but let's keep in mind what we're all here for.

thanks,
darkpuppet
