-----------------------------

That's just a few.

I would ask if as many of you as possible can fix your avatars and signatures up. Appreciate it. I know the reaction to the change is going to be mostly negative, despite the fact that it was necessary and I spent a ridiculous amount of my time on it, so I'm going to go on a hiatus because if I see too many negative reactions, I'm apt to snap, hehe, enjoy.

i like the design, whats with the no double posting though, does it merge posts together automatically or something or does it just not let you post twice in a row, if so thats kinda gay

one thing i would change is do something so that the sections with new posts are easier to see, & improve the light theme a little bit, it doesn't look nearly as clean as the black theme does, you could probably take away the add attachment section at the bottom of the quick reply too cause more than likely it'll just end up taking up space because nobody really posts attachments in replys

-- Mon Apr 20, 2009 8:29 pm --

testing double reply

-- Mon Apr 20, 2009 8:29 pm --

yeah i was right

-- Mon Apr 20, 2009 8:30 pm --

isn't that gay really

-- Mon Apr 20, 2009 8:35 pm --

hkx is right about the soundclick code not working btw, i think , thats a little gay but not really a big issue

Your signatures need to be done in bbcode instead of html (security reasons) < i guess that applys to posts too, so thats why the soundclick code doesn't work, whats the security reasons though, pretty much every forum i've been to allows html coding

-- Mon Apr 20, 2009 8:36 pm --

the deleting posts from the shoutbox option is nice too, its only available to mods/admins though right? cause if everybody can do it it may turn into chaos, but if its only mods/admins it'll be good to easily get ridda spam

Not many forums really do allow html.Using the bbcode is simple as hell anyway, you just do soundclick - your url [/soundclick]. If people can use flash, they can put in bad code that crashes peoples computer, etc. Its almost impossible for me to allow HTML, I don't think its worth horking the system to allow it.

I will have instructions for all that later.

Yes, double post stops you from posting twice in a row.

Only admins can delete from the shoutbox.

There is a quite a few things to address, but the transition didn't go as smoothly as I thought it would. I need to fix a bunch of lingering issues first.

oh so you're making it embeddable like youtube vids?, good idea it'll be alot easier, i don't think the codes much different so you should be able to simplify it to work just by putting the number from the soundclick song in between tags
