Hello Tip.It!

Welcome to the most recent version of IP.Board. I'm sure you'll notice there have been plenty of changes and improvements which you'll be keen to explore. A few things have also changed which we need to tell you about:
  • The "Like" button has been enabled for posts, this makes it possible for you to agree with what someone is saying without having to make a post if you have nothing further to add to the dicussion. You cannot like your own posts, and you cannot see a cumulative counter of how many likes you've obtained, although in theory, you could go through every post you've made and count them up if you wanted. ;)
  • A filter for image links has been enabled. This has been done for your protection and has been something we've wanted to do for a while. Without it, it's always been possible for someone to harvest IP addresses from the forum by putting an image on a custom host into their post, or signature or whatever and then use the fact that it was hosted on a server they control to log the IPs which visited the image. To combat this, all images are now filtered and we've added most of the large image hosts, but I'm sure we will have missed some, so if you notice an image host is blocked who shouldn't be, then feel free to tell us in this thread and we'll see about adding it. Note that we will not be accepting submissions of personal websites for the reasons listed above.
  • When editing a post, the link colour in posts on the Deflection & Tip.It skins is not easy to read (the bright blue), we'll get around to sorting this as soon as possible but it's proving to be a little more tricky than originally anticipated.
  • View New Content should now be completely up to date with the latest posts and should never lag 5 minutes behind actual posts like it used to.
  • Tagging is now enabled and when creating a topic, you can choose from a list of predefined tags which categorise your topic. This makes it much easier to find similar topics that may also interest you.
  • Gallery is now re-enabled and fully compatible with all of our skins.
  • Tracker is now fixed in Tip.It Skin.
  • Massive improvements to handling of notifications.
  • Plus loads of other new features and bug fixes. :)

Looks more sleek now, and I'm sure the behind the scenes workings are much more efficient now. Good job. :)

Can I get an explanation of the "warning points" under my name? Specifically if there is a limit or something.

Haha yeah I was wondering about this.... I mean obviously it's how many times we've been warned/punished by mods, but I don't know if that was supposed to be there.

The question is.... Who has more?



A few other things.... Are hide tags going to always be aligned to the left even if he have them in center tags? Why did you guys remove the post counter from our profiles that shows the number of total posts instead of "calculated" posts?

Yeah you can see your own warning points but not eachother's. It allows you to keep track of why you were warned, and if you received a point for it.

Interesting. Test post.

The clan field has not been changed in any way since I brought the forum back online.

Interesting. It showed "rsdinasty$$RSD" right after I made that post.


Edit: Yup we got a bug. Fixes itself after a refresh though...

Did you change it in another window and then make the post? Either way, it's sorted itself out now.

I'll look into the first issue, it might not be changeable but we'll see.

Secondly, we didn't, might want to ask IPS why they chose to do that. :P

Hi

I also like the new verion and look forward to explore it further, however, I'm not too fond of the new theme as I find it too darkish for my taste. I personally like the background in textareas to be in white with fontcolor in black or darkblue to be much more pleasing for my eyes.

I'll guess I can just switch to one of the other themes available.

Thanks for the post, if you prefer a lighter theme, try out IP.Board which is the default theme and is much brighter colours (including exactly what you wanted when creating/editing a post).

Thanks, I had always liked seeing how much my two post counts differed.

Is the little (can't think of the proper term) notification box for updates to topics/forums we're following supposed to be gone? Or have I just not figured out how to get it back? I've tweaked around in CP, but at most I've just got it to pop up at the top of the page on the little bell icon.

As interesting as knowing when people's birthdays are... I'd rather see updates to stuff I follow. :P Just curious to see if it's gone forever.

The hook for that does seem to have disappeared, but I think it may appear in your notifications now (which is top left) when something happens, I'm not entirely sure. There's literally been hundreds of changes from this version to the previous one and so keeping track of them is a bit of a nightmare.
