Well now when we are discussing on moving to a new forum we now have major updates from forumotion.
I have done the following updates-
The advanced profile is a "remake" of the vBulletin profile.
There are different tab such as:
- The user messages: You can write a message on the profile of a member.(Comments appear on profile like Facebook etc)
- The friends list.
- Contact information: You can contact the member.
> Scrolling announcements
One of the most promising in terms of evolution possibilites. It displays annoucements in the form of text or images, on portal, forum, or all pages of the forum.
Announcements can scroll left, right, up or down at speeds decided by the admin. In addition, they may also mark a
time-out and the admin can also define the horizontal or vertical space between each listing.
As a first announcement u can read the announcement on top scrolling across-"Please check the topic for support regarding new website through Voidserver"
This option allows you to display or not, a multi-quote button. Now it will be easier to quote several posts at the same time. This button operates on the principle of selection / deselection.
You can see that new button along with other buttons next to Edit etc.
The points system is a system based on different criteria and allowing users to evaluate themselves or even to compete.
How are points calculated?
- Points generated by the number of posts
- Points generated by the number of topics created
- Points generated by the number of friends that the user has
- Reputation points
- Points generated by the registration date of the member
- Points generated by the number of message on his profile
The board administrator can change many settings for this feature.
For the creation of messages and topics, he can change the gain of points for each forum.
To make the points system even more attractive, they can create levels of points from which they have a "rank" that the admin can define.
The field points can be displayed either on the profile, either in messages or both. The name of the field can also be changed.
>Reputation system :Evaluation + "Thanks" Button (similar to karma mod)
The reputation system, as you have noticed, is a sub part of the points system. It also works with points.
In each posts, if the feature is activated, small buttons to rate the post will be apparent. Each positive or negative rate can make you win or
lose reputation points.
The number of points won or lost can be modified and can be customized for each categories.
The button "Thanks" allows a member who created a topic to thank the user who wrote the message that it considers most appropriate
(Would work on this more,need refinement,DarkGhost might have moticed that he has maybe negative rep,i apologize for that,was testing it,pls be careful with it in its use etc.)
>Avatars in members list
You can now see all your users avatars while browsing the members list
There is a Flood Control update and an update on Profile Fields.
I would like to work on Personalised Profile fields later,add more fields to ur Profile that u can add info to later.
But it still doesnt change the facts-We got an option to get a Pro web site through Voidserver.
