Please vote for your favorite(s) till Sunday, December 6th!!

Subsequenty, the scoreboard will be determined as follows:

  • The winner of this poll receives 11 points, the second receives 10, the third gets 9, and so on.
  • If two places tie, they will receive equal points. For example: there are two winners --> both will receive 11 points, the next lower in votes will be treated as third and hence receives 9 points.
  • I am keeping track of who gets how many points. In the end, I will sum those up, announce the scoreboard, and, of course, the winners.

May the odds be ever in your favor :p

As indicated previously, the opportunity to use HTML in signatures gives people the chance to introduce malevolent code to the site that, in the best case, creates minor inconveniences. However, it is also possible to break the entire site layout or to even compromise people's security.

It is for this reason that I am forced to remove any HTML-priviledges that have existed and announce that post-formatting will, from this point onwards, exclusively be available via BBCode (the codes in [brackets]). The only exception are admins (aka. MH and I) who are advised to use it as little as possible (i.e. for demonstrations or announcements) and omit it whereever possible.

Now, some of you are particularly fond of using tables, myself included. Personally, I would have liked to add some BBCode for tables into the editor. By using tables, though, it is extremely easy to break the forum layout as well. In fact, looking at any previous "help, my post broke the forum layout" had some sort of wonky table that simply was not used correctly (most of the time, more closing than opening tags and the like). Writing regular expressions (the magical link that transforms BBCode into displayable HTML-Code inside your browser) for tables (and especially nested tables) is close to impossible, if not impossible by definition. For these reasons, you will not find an alternative solution to insert tables.

Not the typical "hey, new feature"-post but I guess it's important enough to get its own announcement, too. I guess now it's time to fix up some signatures ;)

  Public events
Posted by: Silverthorn - 10-17-2015, 08:14 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (3)

You might have noticed the newly added tab at the top right corner called "running events". This is a little thingummy that will, as the name implies, list up to 3 of the most imminent events taking place. The following is a small list of the features implemented.


Visibility: self
Every event that anyone posts will be visible to them, no matter whether they are public or private. In other words, if you set an event, it will only be displayed to you, nobody else. The difference to public events is that those will be visible in the calendar for anybody. This behavior is completely independent of usergroups.


Visibility: others
By default, only users with moderating priviledges may place public events in the tab. This is to keep the amount of items minimal and reduced to interesting/important bits. For community-organized events with deadlines and the like, please inform a moderator (ideally by reporting your own thread) so that he can add your topic to the tab.


Event type
Only single events are supported. The way recurring events are stored in the database is absolutely ugly and I don't want to invest heaps of time to allow both of them. They kind of work in a way that the first date of the recurring events is shown but any following is ignored. Keep that in mind in case you wonder why a recurring event you set a year ago will not appear anytime it should.


Date
The list will only contain entries that lay in the future. Due to the way single event dates are stored in the database, the cutoff-time is midnight GMT. So, if you set the event date to "29 Nov 2015", it will be treated as "29 Nov 2015, 00:00 GMT" and hence will disappear after that date/time.
UPDATE: events are now treated as happening midday instead of midnight! In other words, setting the event date to "29 Nov 2015" will imply a datetime of "29 Nov 2015, 12:00 GMT". I hope this clears out some confusion.
To check the current GMT-date/time, scroll down at any page within the forums; at the bottom right, your current time and GMT-time will flip back and forth in the bottom right.



Alright, that's all. Just giving you a little heads up about what this thing does and what not ;)


tl;dr: if you have some sort of event that should pop up at the top right, inform a mod, yo :p
