You should now have an option for a spoiler tag in the "Go Advanced" posting thingy...

If you click the button, it'll give you a box to insert a title

To have no title for the spoiler, just press the space bar

Multiple Spoilers per post

Fire Warrior, how can you be both a moderator and an admin? Don't admins have all moderator powers anyway?

That's because he's a Super Mod.

11-25-2010, 09:36 AM
That's not it. If he was a Supermod he'd have the icon Orangefalcon has.

Oh now I know why...he's assigned as moderator to a section.

As well as an administrator to this board he helps out as a mod as well.

I'm a moderator with admin privileges. So I have my normal mod duties and some extra.

It's because me and FireWarrior were recruited to help with some of the technical aspects of the site. It's a temporary position.

The original Bluestar here,


-As most of you will notice, the staff are sporting new User-Bars, which you can see in their posts, These will be coming to all members very soon.

-Custom User Titles are now back up and are able to be used.

- Ranking System

Why is it that certain ranks no longer have full forum privileges? Before this was initialized, I had private message and visitor messaging access. Now that these new ranks are up, I have no access at all to those features. So what gives or is this a glitch?

Kurama
11-25-2010, 01:53 PM
Just a Glitch man, I am going to fix it all right now

EDIT: Just checked the UserGroups and they are all fine, everyone should be able to send and receive PM's unless they have set otherwise

Ratseye
11-26-2010, 12:21 AM
The original Bluestar here,

Is PM Tracking turned off? I sent a PM with a message tracker before the ranks went up and when I click the link to clear the confirmed tracking message, I get:

Scentheart, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

If need be, I can make a brand new account since this one was part of the old database and I can't seem to find where to change my username (which I no longer use on any ranger site.) I currently use either Ycestar, Ycestar Ranger, or Ycestar Knight.

Fire Warrior
11-26-2010, 12:54 AM
I checked early, and Kage does have message tracking turned off. I don't know if he wants it that way or not, but that isn't a glitch. I'll pass this on to Kage though :)

Ratseye
11-26-2010, 01:06 AM
Okay, PMs seem to be working now. Thanks.

Feel free to use whichever account you wish. If you want to use your old Bluestar account, PM me and I can change your username for you. ATM, there aren't any plans for user-changeable usernames.

- Message Tracking has been turned on for everyone

- PM Limits: Admin 1000, S-Mod 500, Mod 250, Council 200 and all members 150

- Some of you may have noticed the newest Rank I added called NPH!, this stands for Neil Patrick Harris whom is also known as God, a few of us thought it would be funny, so we went ahead with it, to reach the level of his awesomeness you must have 6969 posts.

The only reason i thanked that is because we dont have a high five button. ROTFLMAO! Neil is purely awesome and 6969 fits this so very well ROTFL:)

soo what is pm tracking?

Kurama
11-27-2010, 04:48 AM
The post counts have not changed but the names have, when I get home from work this afternoon, I will be putting up a thread, with all of the rankings and what each of them will have in terms of Sig Size, Avatar Size, Total PM Count and so on and so forth.

SGP- Message Tracking is if you want to make sure, whoever your sending the PM to reads it, by clicking a box called Read Message Reciept

the arcade is now up and running. As far as I know, there shouldn't be any problems with high scores being saved. Also, 3 of the games have advertisements in them while they load, but we didn't put those ads there, so...

Enjoy the arcade! More games coming soon (including Power Rangers Hangman and possibly Hardcore Super Mario :p)

The Settings above are now in effect, we will give everyone 1 week to make sure they are within the limits Sig and Avatar wise.

- The Off-Topic Section is now gone and has been fixed up

- As you can see I have gone through and done a major set of name changes to the forums, with the help of SirGreen, Sirius, OrangeFalcon, RainDrop, Breaker and Lillie

- If you don't know which forum is which LOOK AT THE SUB-TITLE that's what their there for.

Updates that effect board maintanance

- I've installed a forum bot for use with the multiple account detector. It is called The BanHammer (what, I have a sense of humor).
-we are continuing to work on more skins and banners. If you have any banners you'd like to submit for us to go through, please check the Banner Submission Thread in Trent's Sketchpad.

Goodies for you

-The new shoutbox is up and running. The problem with the black text by default is gone, and it offers more options for you guys.

-We are making and installing new smilies. The current ones will remain, but these are special Power Rangers ones that will be installed. They'll be similar to what RangerCrew has, but with a different spin. Those will get rolled out ASAP. But in the meantime, 3 are already installed.

-Two forum bots have been installed. One for the comic blog, ComicVine.com, and one for TV-Nihon for when subbed episodes of Kamen Rider, Super Sentai and other awesome Toku shows are posted.

-I hope you all enjoyed Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/Festivus/Whatever. If you haven't noticed, it's been snowing for awhile on the board. We've decided to keep that going up until New Years. So, enjoy that while it lasts.

-Look, a monkey!

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

So, yeah, that's it for now.

Further Updates:

We have also added Forum Bots for After the Power, a blog which reports on ranger actors and actresses roles before and after being in PR, and SEScoops which reports professional wrestling news.

After The Power will be posting in the Cast News and Appearences section of The Morphing Grid, and SEScoops will be posting in Storm Charger's.

Enjoy them!

- As you may notice we have a new post format, It is easy enough to get used to and you can pick out those one liners easier...... LOL

- As you may now noticed in the forum's, I believe Evil picked up on was telling the difference between Stickyed and Non-Stickyed threads, this problem is now fixed, with some new bars separating the 2

-More themes have been installed. Here's the list as of this post:

Power Rangers In Space
Star Sapphire Corps
Indigo Tribe
White Lantern Corps
Orange Lantern Corps

-Some edits have been done to the top with the member info. It shouldn't be hard to miss.

-We're starting something called the "Movie of the Week." There will be a collapsible module in Hayley's Cyberspace that will showcase the movie, a trailer, and some basic info. There will also be a discussion thread for that.

-There's a new profile field for you to fill in along with your location and basic biography. It's a "Favorite Ranger" field which you can find in your user settings. When filled in, it will show along with all your posts.

-There's a new User Spotlight that will showcase a random user from the board. The User Showcase can be found in the sidebar.

As far as I know, that's it for this time. :)
