  • NEW SERVER! - Forums going down this friday

    Its finally time everyone. Time to get us onto the new faster server, and upgraded to vbulletin 4.0. (crowd cheering in the background).

    The forums will go down Friday 2/4/11 at 2pm EST. And they will be down for hopefully no more than 8 hours. But I plan to be there till Sunday If need be.

    The new forum is gonna be a fresh start. Here are the plugins that made the cut.
    Vbulletin Blog
    Vbulletin CMS
    VB Image Hosting
    VB Project Tools
    Vault Wiki - with imported data from adv FAQ
    Advanced statistics on the homepage
    All of our smilies

    Feel free to checkout vbulletin 4 and see what cool features it brings along. Such as better video integration, facebook integration and much more.

    I will also be able to make much more robust plugins for the new system, like a working version of VB Garage where you can store all of your ride and carputer information.

    Feel free to leave comments, I will be reading this thread.

    Thanks everyone!

    So what will be kept in this fresh start?

    Hopefully all threads will stay in the database and are backwards compatible?

    User name/password combos remain the same? Avatars, stats, danglies?

    What about the live New Posts? I always liked that...

          If it doesn't have one-touch spam ban and clean, I vote NO for an upgrade! That feature alone is GOLD!

              so from the one-touch ban and clean mod
              *** Staff note: The author of this modification has passed away in a diving accident. We wish his family all strength in dealing with this tragic issue. ***

              So I will need to build one for this If i can't find someone who already did.

                Ouch. That's unexpectedly tragic.

                  do you need ban&delete all only, or do you also need the option to ban without deleting posts?

                    Question: What is wrong with clicking on the post, then saying "delete as spam".
                    on that screen you can delete all posts by that user and ban them.

                    What is this plugin doing that is different?

                      So what i've done is added an option under the user menu. It says One-Touch Ban.

                      Clicking that will take you to a page where you can say "delete all posts and threads by this user", "soft or physical remove", and "ban user".

                      Sound good?

                        Is it possible to somehow keep a record of banned people and why they were banned and by who

                        I know we have a banned people's list at present but there is no info as to who banned them and why. (unless maybe it's only admins that can see this info)

                          As the name implies, it bans the user and deletes all their posts in one easy operation.
                          Without the plugin, the mod/admins have to ban the user, then hunt down all their posts and delete them one by one, which is tedious.

                          This is really great for those high-speed spammers that drop a couple dozen spam messages within a matter of minutes, or the disgruntled user who posts hate-filled posts as quickly as they can.
                          Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
                          How about the Wiki?

                            Forgive me if im misunderstanding as I don't use the tool. The default "delete as spam" moderation option has a checkbox for "delete all posts and threads by this user". Its there now, you can try it. Just check the box next to someones post and go down to the bottom of the page and hit "delete as spam" and in the next screen you have all those options. No hunting or pecking required.

                            However for the new forum i've made it much easier to get there, i basically added those first 3 steps in one click under the users name in the post.
