Added 4 new skins which can be selected in the bottom left hand corner of the forum or in your User CP

 

I Bulletin Standard

I Bulletin Blue

I Bulletin Green

I Bulletin Purple

 

Nice Skins Indeed, talk about choice !

 

Removed Steel Purple and Green until the guy who made them updates the templates to comply with the latest VB version 3.5.1

 

Enjoy.

 

Attachments for personal messages plugin installed.

 

This version of the plugin was ment for a beta version of VB 3.5 and althought it works fine for VB 3.5.1 I noticed when you try to pm somebody now it hangs a bit but nothing serious. Any problems report them here.

When the fellah releases a updated version ill install it.

Space Invaders is too easy... any decent player can recover the lives lost after every round...

 

Also the game decided to end all of a sudden?

Trader Ratings!

 

Hi Guys

 

For anyone who has not used trader ratings yet see some notes below on how to leave someone feedback. It is very simple.

 

1. Go into thread you bought from or sold on and copy the link

2. Click on the trader rating next to the persons name

3. Use the drop down menu and select if you were the buyer or seller in the transaction.

4. Use the drop down menu and select what score you wish to give the person eg Positve +1

5. Enter a comment about the transaction like on Egay and submit!

6. Message will be sent to the user advising them that you left them feedback.

 

Sweeeeeeet :D I luv VB, sorry Yabb but ya just can't compete with quality!

Note: You may also leave feedback for older transactions if you have a link on this forum in the selling thread!

Double Merge

 

Excellent Mate,

Well the idea is to stop spammers double,triple posting and what not.

It wasnt ment to make people look like idiots just to keep the forum tidy.

 

Yeah, I figured thats what it was for but I still hate the fucker! ;) lol

Which is another reason the auto-merge double post feature should be turned back on. The number of posts per page is getting smaller and smaller because of all those bloddy avatars!

meh I disagree on the page sizes getting smaller. Default avatar is 80x80 so its not a huge increase.

Ryan wanted the auto merge double post thing removed so you'll have to talk to him.

 

I should also add the amount of posts per page is 10 by default.

Just to let people know some people currently cant access the page. Seems to only effect some people including myself. Only way I am able to post this is using the server manager IP. Hopefully it will sorts itself out soon.

New plugins on the forum.

 

First

 

[AJAX] vB Pager 3.0.1

 

Hack Version: 3.0.1

vB-version: 3.5.x

Developer: http://WwW.UAEWEB.CoM

Install-difficulty: Few minutes!

 

Introduction:

vB Pager is a text-based instant messaging system over your community between members. Users can exchange short & quick messages amongst each other. Unlike the regular private messaging system, the paged user is guaranteed to read your message & reply to it (if you choose this option) instantly & easily.

 

* Features:

o Uses AJAX Technology to Send pager messages / Get pager messages / Add & Remove a member to buddy list / Add & Remove a member from Ignore list. (No Refresh Required)

* Main Features:

o vB Pager Buddy List ‘pop-up’ window is used to keep track of the friends you wish to interact with. By going to your "vB Pager Buddies", you'll be able to see which of your friends are currently online and offline, and be able to send them a pager message. Adding people to your buddy list also allow you to send pager messages to multiple forum members at the same time. You may add any member of the forums to your buddy list by clicking the icon next to their names in the vB Pager Online Members Page or Clicking the Manage Buddies Link to add/remove members into your list.

o vB Pager Ignore List ‘pop-up’ window lists are used for those people who's messages you wish not recieve from.

o Received Pager Messages are Draggable Inline Popups.

o Sending a message opens up a small window where you can type in message to be sent.

o Optional Anonymity: you can choose to hide your username when paging another user on the forum, & define which Usergroup can utilize this option.

o The window comes in with a built-in character counter to enable the user to keep track of the characters typed.

o Logs of all incoming and outgoing pager messages ‘Inbox/Sent Items’ member has, can be viewed and deleted.

o Download Stored Messages as XML, CSV, TXT.

o Members can turn the vB Pager Off anytime they wish not to receive pager messages, and they can select the option to receive pager messages from those who are in their Pager Buddy List only.

 

In posts you can click on http://www.bogans.net/images/steelpurple/statusicon/vbpager_icon.gif to send pager message or go through member list and click on profile. you can manage your pager messages in the top right under Private messages.

forgot to add that there is a Thief option that I requested that was added but I had to disable due to a bug.

The Glow Username in the store only will show up in Internet Explorer and not in firefox, this is not a bug in the shop hack, firefox just doesnt support it.

 

I've given everybody 100 points to get you started :D

Ok new version released here update log.

 

v1.0.4 Update:

1) eStore Setting: Thief Failures Go To Theftee. With this feature if the Thief option fails, the person doing the stealing loses the points to the person they are stealing from.

2) Thief Option can not attempt to steal more points than the user trying to steal has.

3) Fixed a problem that some users were having with the Points field displaying blank numbers in the postbits. (Thanks to Dark s.s. Trunk)

4) Added template edit below to 'MEMBERINFO' to show the points / donate link in user profiles.

5) eStore Option: Thief Immunity to be immune to thieves. Default is set to expire in 7 days.

6) eStore Option: Change Other's User Title Immunity to be immune to users changing your User Title. Default is set to expire in 7 days.

7) When purchasing an eStore item, if it expires, it tells you how many days it will expire in.

8) Thief reports proper error if the user you are stealing from doesn't have enough points.

9) Added View Richest Members to the estore_main template. (Could take a while to view if you have a larger forum.)

10) eStore Setting: Thief Always Fails On Staff. Enable this setting to make it so thief always fails on usergroups 5, 6 and 7.

11) eStore Setting: Glow Strength Intensity. Change this number to change the Glow Filter Strength to be a larger or lesser Username Glow intensity.

 

 

I have also enabled the AJAX feature on the Pager so new messages with come up without refreshing the page.

 

As Ian Also pointed out you can access Pager option with Quick Links at the top.

Make sure you allow popups from this site in your browser.
