Would it be possible to migrate a DS IC thread over here? Not copy it wholesale but continue where we left off? Can we make new ‘rooms’ to accommodate different IC threads, and is there a limit to how much we can store here?
obidancerAdministratorMay 10, 2017 at 12:34 pm
Yes! The more the merrier!
You are moderator so I think you should have the ability to add rooms. If not let me know, I’ll see to it.
And no to the limit. I trust the server can have handle a heavy load. If things get weird, just let me know.
ariaMemberMay 10, 2017 at 3:18 pm
Hmmm…can’t see an obvious way of creating a new room / topic??
ariaMemberMay 10, 2017 at 4:38 pm
Oh, and can you get it to report how many posts an individual has made in a thread (like DS does)?
obidancerAdministratorMay 10, 2017 at 11:31 pm
@Aria you should now find the ability to add new forums in your Profile > New Forums
Create a new one and make its Parent 2075: Stormy Waters, so to keep things organized.
As for the post count, each profile show the user total replies but it encompasses all the different topics.
This function will require some special coding., though I like the idea. Can you point me to where does this show in DS?
ariaMemberMay 11, 2017 at 3:23 am
Each thread has a post count which is a link to a pop up that lists who has posted in that thread… it’s why I initially based 2075 rewards on post count as it was easy to calculate!
Although having looked at my profile the data may be there!

From the Stormy Waters page: The forum ‘2075: Stormy Waters’ is closed to new topics and replies. I’ve seen the New Forum bit but it won’t let me put it under Stormy Waters 😛
obidancerAdministratorMay 12, 2017 at 9:55 am
Oops, sorry about that. It’s open now, you can add to Stormy Water.
ariaMemberMay 12, 2017 at 11:06 am
Ok, next silly question…how do I then get it to show up in the Rooms link?? Or is that something you need to do?
obidancerAdministratorMay 12, 2017 at 1:02 pm
Yes I’ll take care of that.
ariaMemberMay 14, 2017 at 4:57 pm
Great. If you can move Triads and Tribulations somewhere we can all see it I will get things migrated from DS. On a side note Mr J seems to be struggling to make a user profile here, can you help?
obidancerAdministratorMay 19, 2017 at 11:04 pm
Sorry, just saw that post. Have Mr. J send me a message on [email protected]
I’ll see how I can help.
And I can’t see myself where you’ve made Triads and Tribulations! Do you see it in your account?
ariaMemberMay 20, 2017 at 12:40 am
No, I looked and couldn’t see it so maybe I didn’t do it correctly 😛
I think Mr J wants to run it on MythWeavers so may ask you to rename it 🙂

it seems as if the edit button for posts has vanished. I think that one is quite essential 😀
misterjoshuaMemberMay 23, 2017 at 3:37 am
Hey Obi. Cheers, got my account working now.
Some ideas for your suggestion box 😀
– Is there a bbcode guide for colour tags? They seem to be different from the ones on Dumpshock (my orange turned green). Maybe there’s just a list of accepted colours?
– Is it possible to have a text editor be part of the posting to save people having to type out the bbcode? I don’t mind if not cos I use bbcode a lot, but some people might not.
– Mythweavers have a really cool ‘roll’ bbcode command that rolls dice for you. Dunno how hard that is to implement. I imagine quite hard. If you could do it though that would be ace!

Welcome on board, Josh!
So I’ve ran a couple tests and it seems your color change is because of the ” ” you’re adding after [ color=
example: [ color = orange ] Orange color
[ color = “orange” ] Not so Orange anymore
misterjoshuaMemberMay 26, 2017 at 3:24 am
Haha. That’s weird. Ok I’ll give it a try. I was using #codes though.
obidancerAdministratorMay 26, 2017 at 11:39 am
The #codes will work too, just don’t use “-“
misterjoshuaMemberMay 31, 2017 at 3:19 am
Some more suggestions:
Have forums be white text on black background
The last one isn’t important, but I always liked how dumpshock was white text on black. Any chance we could flip it or do people prefer the black on white?
