    NEW UPDATE : Reputation mod, Points system, advanced profile, multi-quote and more to see inside!

    Post by Dark_wizzie on Wed Mar 18, 2009 3:50 pm

    Dear Forumotion members,

    Here is right now the update you've all been waiting for!
    No need to say more, just look below for the brand new features (you'll also see attached for most of them their tutorial ) :

    1 - Login pop-up
    Tutorial : http://help.forumotion.com/frequently-asked-questions-f5/login-pop-up-t38544.htm

    Can display in a pop-up for login, to provide a fast connection for members or rapid registration for the guests.

    The admin can add a personal message to the pop-up.

    2 - Flood Control

    Tutorial : http://help.forumotion.com/frequently-asked-questions-f5/flood-control-t38545.htm

    Allows the admin to limit the creation of threads, posts or private messages.
    It's calculated in seconds and the maximum value is 999 999 seconds, or 277 hours or 11.5 days

    3 - Multi-quote
    Tutorial : http://help.forumotion.com/frequently-asked-questions-f5/multi-quote-t38435.htm

    This option allows you to display or not, a multi-quote button. Now it will be easier to quote several posts at the same time. This button operates on the principle of selection / deselection.

    4 - Scrolling announcements
    Tutorial : http://help.forumotion.com/frequently-asked-questions-f5/scrolling-announcements-t38436.htm

    One of the most promising in terms of evolution possibilites. It displays annoucements in the form of text or images, on portal, forum, or all pages of the forum.

    Announcements can scroll left, right, up or down at speeds decided by the admin. In addition, they may also mark a
    time-out and the admin can also define the horizontal or vertical space between each listing.

    5 - Points System (similar to cash mod)
    Tutorial : http://help.forumotion.com/frequently-asked-questions-f5/the-points-system-t38437.htm

    The points system is a system based on different criteria and allowing users to evaluate themself or even to compete.

    Activate it in Modules -> Point System

    How are points calculated?
    - Points generated by the number of posts
    - Points generated by the number of topics created
    - Points generated by the number of friends that the user has
    - Reputation points
    - Points generated by the registration date of the member
    - Points generated by the number of message on his profile

    The board administrator can change many settings for this feature.
    For the creation of messages and topics, he can change the gain of points for each forum.
    To make the points system even more attractive, they can create levels of points from which they have a "rank" that the admin can define.
    The field points can be displayed either on the profile, either in messages or both. The name of the field can also be changed.

    6 - Reputation system :Evaluation + "Thanks" Button (similar to karma mod)
    Tutorial : http://help.forumotion.com/frequently-asked-questions-f5/reputation-system-evaluation-thanks-button-t38434.htm

    The reputation system, as you have noticed, is a sub part of the points system. It also works with points.

    In each posts, if the feature is activated, small buttons to rate the post will be apparent. Each positive or negative rate can make you win or
    lose reputation points.
    The number of points won or lost can be modified and can be customized for each categories.
    The button "Thanks" allows a member who created a topic to thank the user who wrote the message that it considers most appropriate. The post then
    appears highlighted.
    Check out in your admin panel : Display > pics management > advanced mode > buttons > Please make sure you've got buttons for this functionality.

    The field points can be displayed either on the profile, either in messages or both. The name of the field can also be changed.
    In addition, several options related to reputation are intended to limit
    the use of this feature according to certain criteria (see the admin panel).

    7 - Advanced Profile
    Tutorial : http://help.forumotion.com/frequently-asked-questions-f5/the-advanced-profile-t38433.htm

    The advanced profile is a "remake" of the vBulletin profile.

    There are different tab such as:
    - The user messages: You can write a message on the profile of a member.
    - The friends list.
    - Statistics.
    - Contact information: You can contact the member.
    - The fields of the profile

    This feature can be disabled, then the simple profile (current one) that will be displayed.

    8 - Profile fields
    Tutorial : in progress

    We have also changed the management of the fields in the profile. We have enhanced the functionality to adapt to the advanced profile.
    You can activate it in : Users & groups > Profiles > Profile fields

    8 - Avatars in members list

    You can now see all your users avatars while browsing the members list Surprised

    ----------

    We hope sincerely that this update will please you, and we stay put for all your feedbacks!

    Best regards,
    Forumotion Team Cool

    What about a larger private message mail box?

    Post by stathmk on Thu May 28, 2009 8:20 am

    What about a larger private message mail box? My sent box and save box are each 100% full. My inbox is 18% full. Every message is 2%. If I don't erase anything and the size of the mail box doesn't change, then I will probably run out of room in 2010.

    I sometimes type on mersenneforum.org, which is also made by vBulletin (I think). They have a limit of 1,000 messages. Why not have a limit of 100, 200, or 250 messages in the inbox for Wolf 3D Haven? Please consider this. I can't imagine myself getting 1,000 messages, but I can imagine myself getting 200 messages.

    A mersenne prime is a prime that fits the formula of 2^(a prime number)-1. One example is 2^43,112,609-1 or 243,112,609-1, which has 12,978,189 digits! If you want to know more about this sort of thing, then send me a message.
