Some user enhancements quickly:

first, on latest talk, if there is a new post in a thread, you will see by who and a new icon shows up.
Easy to see where you've been.

Added the buddy system, and now when your buddy has posted in a thread, it highlights yellow.

When you roll your mouse over a topic, it will pop up the first part of the post so you can decide whether to read on or not.

Topics with many pages now have a 1,2....4,5 numbering sequence right on the topics page.

Many bug fixes, including inline editing and quick reply posting works better.

Anti-spam measures, including disallowing URLs and link from new members until they have 10 posts.
People cannot send PMs either until 10 posts.

Lets see...thank you mod is in there now, some other stuff.

(say "add thank you" under additional options when you post when you are grateful for a post/thread)

New beserker Yell is in there and I can put a filter on there for you potty mouths...

added in the option to let you turn off and on censoring....hell, its your site, your choice.


RSS feeds of forums so you can see new posts right in your news reader....

lightweight version of the forums you can read from your Treo or Blackberry....


New smilies are coming, and a buncha other stuff.
A little at a time.

All in under 24 hours, with one gigantic oops.
Thanks for your patience.

Thanks Webby for all you do man, it is much appreciated out here. This site continues to be the absolute best Vikes forum in the land.SKOL!

OH! Added Spell Check too.
No elite dictionaries, just good old English.
Now those pack fans have no excuse.

WVV, you can see at the bottom of threads a "Add Thank You" button as well as the other way of doing it while you reply.

Thanks Webby. I think the transition went just fine.

Sure we were down for a bit during the move, but I didn't go thru any withdrawls at all.

Awesome Webby! Thanks for keeping PP.O running smoothly....it's going great!

Webby

Newest of the new tonight, and I am done.

Search box on each topic so you can search just in that thread.

User profiles now tell you where that person is in the site

You can add comments to a user profile....abuse it and I will kill it.

Little flashing email envelope when you have new private messages.


Bunch of other stuff for mods/admins.

Enjoy!

Cool stuff Webb (<- New Spell Check used to perfection). This makes PP.O even better, who thought that would be possible.

Love the new upgrades Webby!
Just another reason why PP.O is the best fan site in the NFL...

Webby
02-26-2007, 12:42 AM
Well, the new host said, goodbye, no Vikings fans allowed!
So they turned us off without warning until after they did it.
Niiiiiiiiiiice.

Anyhow, we are on some dedicated servers again and I brought all the changes with me.
Please email me or PM me with questions.

What a fricken weekend.

What a pain in the ass, they need a visit from the pp.o mafia.
So, you must have gone sleepless to get this back up.

Crazy, man.

Hey - my avatar is gone, so when I tried to upload it again, I get the following error:

An Error Has Occurred!
The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved.

Well - what do you mean by problems, CG?

I am seeing that (under the red X where my avatar won't appear) it says "you have 6 messages, 0 are new."

But when I got into PMs, I only have 2.
Is that what you're talking about??

I've got the exact same problem, unless I want to leave the huge Terry Tate pic, which is kind of ridiculous... I think the problem is you can't have them saved on your PC, cause I just linked this monstrosity.

Did we lose the 'ignore' button?
If so, too bad--its the best way to deal with internet tuff guys.


LOVE being able to set to ignore sigs and avatars.
As a dial-up user, I can't fully express my gratitude for this option.
Nice job!

Webby
02-26-2007, 10:49 AM
1.
Ignore button will return
2.
If your PM numbers are off, let me know.
I will manually fix.
In the midst of firing data so fast to too many places, somehow them numbers got goofy.
3.
Working on the attachment upload issue right now.


Yeah!
