Welcome to the new forum! (Again ...)

Post by emmzee » Sat Sep 14, 2002 5:59 pm

Okay guys, hopefully this is the LAST forum I'll ever be installing. :upset:

If there are any problems, let me know. (I know having to re-register is a problem, but please don't message me about that, I know it sucks.)

I installed all of the old avatars and smilies (plus some new smilies!) ... also, here is the ranking system I came up with ... if you can come up with better titles, I'd be happy to change them, these are just what I came up with on the fly. I could name 'em after the appropriate SMB3 chars if you want:

Image Newbie: 0-9 posts
Image Member: 10-49 posts
Image Experienced Member: 50-99 posts
Image Expert: 100-199 posts
Image Gaming God: 200-349 posts
Image Way too much free time: 350 posts
Image Moderator / Admin

I haven't added any new skins yet, because I don't really know how yet and I'm sick of looking at message boards at the moment. :) If there are specific ones you want me to add, let me know. Personally I think the default looks fine ... and I'm not just saying that 'cuz I'm lazy ... hehe. You can see various styles here:

http://www.phpbb.com/styles/styles_demo/

The old board will remain up, it just won't be linked from the main site. I won't like to this new phpBB board from the main site until I'm sure everything is working correctly.

Also I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their patience, time, and dedication. Especially the mods! Who I will imbue with mod powers as soon as they register. ^_^

Okay that's it, go to it .....

Whee, I'm the second member registered! And about the skin.....I think we had 2 or 3 say they liked the http://www.phpbb.com/styles/styles_demo ... x.php?s=20 (black soul) skin the best. And why is HTML still turned off?!?!?? Well, whatever.

I just turned HTML on ... all the basic stuff, except for stuff like SCRIPT, FORM, etc. ...... ie, stuff that could be abused. Make sure that you uncheck the "Disable HTML in this post" box if you're using HTML in your messages.

it would be greatly appreciated by all if you would use it more like this tho:

< marquee behavior="slide" scrolldelay=5 width=100% > < /marquee>


This will only make it marquee once, like on my sig.

Thx

They do it to help keep the forums neat and organized. Don't take it personally. It is an honest mistake. Just try to make a not (it's not not, it's NOTE. You changed the meaning of a word. Again.) of not spamming anymore. ;)

[edit] -- Leave my Canadian spelling alone :Þ

thx
