starting to look cool now :D

04-09-2002, 05:51 AM
Looking more like dbpoweramp.com...

Do I have any volunteers to copy over all the FAQs?

04-09-2002, 05:52 AM
you sure do. you want to go first MODatic?

04-09-2002, 05:53 AM
oh you might want to make a FAQ catagory first :D I mean Forum.

04-09-2002, 05:59 AM
if you wan to start creating all the catagories and forums we can start filling the content.

edit the existing titles to suit and create the rest. or whichever :D

04-09-2002, 06:09 AM
also let me know if you want the Moderators colum removed. it's only there to show who the mods are for each forum. i think it's a waste of valuable space. it will take me about 15 mins to locate and remove the HTML reference to it.

but if you want it there that ok too.

you know the colum I am talking about on the far right on the main forum index page?

04-09-2002, 06:41 AM
Actually I don't mind the Mod column, it lets people know who is incharge so to speak.

04-09-2002, 06:49 AM
thats true, except the title can be shown under neath your name :D

hope I wasn't pushing my friendship, when you dissapeared I went and created all the forums.

also added a beta test group, and that forum is private

04-09-2002, 07:06 AM
Not at all, I am very happy for people to help out.

I am going to keep the beta testing on the other forum, I will unlock it, assigning people to groups is way to much hastle.

04-09-2002, 07:18 AM
ok no worries. I can assign them all if you like, I don't mind the hassle.

All the FAQ is done. just needs the who it was posted by in the posts.

04-09-2002, 07:28 AM
let me know If you want some or all the announcements copied over.

04-09-2002, 07:32 AM
You could do them if you were willing :)

Have you managed to upload a custom avatar?, I tried my spoon one, but it says it is an invalid JPG or GIF, even though I have tried both (at 50x50 pixels).

04-09-2002, 07:42 AM

i get the same message

"The uploaded file is not a valid GIF or JPG file. Please ensure that it is and try again."

50x50 is a little restricting too. I have my board set to 110.

I'll try something on my board, and see what happens.

04-09-2002, 07:55 AM
ok, I checked to see if my board can do it, and it works ok.

hmmmm.... have to put my thinking cap on.

I'm getting a message that uploading 'avatars' is currently disabled - has it been switched off temporarily?

When did pictures/icons become 'avatars' anyway? According to dictionary.com 'avatar' means

1. The incarnation of a Hindu deity, especially Vishnu, in human or animal form.

2. An embodiment, as of a quality or concept; an archetype: the very avatar of cunning.

3. A temporary manifestation or aspect of a continuing entity: occultism in its present avatar.

So this is because you are all YABB Gods is it? ;)

This board is much fatser and easier to use IMHO.

Bugger, still needs a spell-checker though!

Welcome to the new forum, kweller :)

Well it hasn't been set up properly yet, I've seen other vBulletin forums with spell checkers. As you've noticed, noticed, avatars are also disabled. Also, the lack of smilies ATM :rolleyes:

04-14-2002, 06:15 AM
lol, yes Spoon has avatars/pics disabled at the moment.

there used to be a free spell checker around, but I think you have to pay for it now.

04-14-2002, 09:54 AM
I have enabled a whole bunch, those who want custom ones can email me, or Razgo for inclusion.

04-14-2002, 10:13 AM
What's the avatar format?

04-14-2002, 10:13 AM

04-15-2002, 09:43 AM
what do you mean by avatar format?

04-15-2002, 03:51 PM
The format of the picture picture/icon that is displayed on all posts, i.e. size, no. of colurs, etc.

04-15-2002, 07:48 PM
the avatars vary but not a lot. the avatar I have is 16mil colours. but I think they are all gifs for the most part.

you can see all the avatars here:

Click user cp--> edit options--> then scroll down to the bottom left and click on "more info" unders Avatars

A 50x50 pixel Gif

I will see if I can update my web site to push everyone into this forum tonight (using server side includes to stick headers and footers on each page).

04-16-2002, 04:16 PM
That's what I was after - thanks.
