Question Vbulletin Questions

Unsure how to do something in this new forum software? Ask the question here and we'll see if we can figure it out for you!

So everything will remain the same... it's just the layout that's changed, right?


Ack! My post count is messed up! A lot! What happened?!?!?!

Actually, a lot is different. I only just noticed the post count difference when you pointed it out. That is unexpected. Mine is also a lot lower than before. You may have noticed that MOVIES is empty. Perhaps our post totals are missing posts in that forum? If so, it's nothing to be concerned about. The BOOKS rule!

Whoa, this is different, kind of shocking, but I finally made it in...
I just have one question...
Are the member titles going to change? Because after being at the other site, "Senior Member" just seems so generic

So does this mean that we have to build up the Movies forum completely from scratch. I am not complaining or anything, but this is going to be a whole lot of work if we do.

By the way I have lost ALL of my PM's that I had. Help!! My posting count has gone down by a lot also.

At least (after a lot of difficulty) I have made it on. This is going to take a lot of getting used to!! One random question, WHy did you change?? I kind of liked the other one better.

EDIT: By the way, How do you log out, or do you need to log out? I have also noticed that is it around 4:00 AM what time are we going by?

1) Titles will be adjusted soon.

2) Honestly, we haven't decided what to do with MOVIES yet. Stand by.

All the old threads are going to be moved in, right? We're not going to lose a whole lot of excellent, edifying, enlighting, and not-so discussions, are we? I would assume not, since everything was moved over from the old EZBoard forum, wasn't it? But why the change, if I may ask? Is this program faster and more efficient?

EDIT: Yes, I'm missing about a 150+ posts, too, but it's nice to know that I've spent much more time in Books and Novices.....

Oh yes, one more thing: avatars. Are we going to have to re-enter them in our profiles? Because yours is the only one showing up, BW.

Sorry to keep bugging you, but I also seem to have received 2 of Balin999's PMs. I assume that things are just being switched around in the move.

After a long absence can I ask why the change in software? I ask because I have recently dropped info pop myself. looks like I am missing 400+ posts but that’s ok I can start fresh

I hate to be a real pain...but I have ten PMs in my profile: eight are from deleted users and two are from a member called Gorsereg. Should I just delete them or would they be gone for good if I did that? Also, does the ten PMs for profiles still apply?

Again, apologies for my extreme computer illiteracy...

Cheers!

Edit: Hmm...I'm missing 98 posts...

B-W,

I was roaming around in my profile and it looks as if there are a lot of interesting options that we never had before. However, it will take a while to get used to things.

I did have one comment. I am personally not concerned about the number of posts, but I don't think the missing ones are all from the movies thread. I had about a fourth of my total posts missing, and I rarely post in movies. So perhaps there is something else that did not transfer over in the numbers.

Barrowdowns clock

I set my profile clock to Central time since I live in Texas. However, the time that now shows on the board is 10:45 pm. The actual time in Texas is 11:45 pm. Is there a reason for this discrepency?

Well I think I figured out the reason why everyone lost their avatar... The avatar setting is currently set at 64 by 64 pixels. Which if anyone wants to check on Google (where I find my avatars) is very, extremely tiny. I got a new one as you can see, but this was one of the few I could find.

Mr. B-W, do you think you are going to keep it at that setting, or are you going to increase the maximum size?

Perhaps the missing posts are in threads that were closed (such as the threads in Haudh-en-Ndengin and Elvenhome)?

Overall I'd say the transfer was pretty painless. I lost a couple of posts I did today so I just copied them from the old forum and pasted them here.

lost posts

Phantom,

That would make a lot of sense. I lost over a thousand posts, and many of my posts would have been in Haudh-en-Ndengin and Elvenhome.

B-W -- Would that explain the difference in numbers?

I have also lost my private messages, although I will simply save any important content (like game proposals) on word.

I just noticed something. When I clicked below my post to see my profile I noticed that forename and surname were listed in the profile but when I went to edit my profile it didn't give me the option of entering forename or surname.

So the posts that were lost - will they ever be recovered? Oh and there are a few posts missing from Quotable Quotes and Quiz Room made on Feb 9.

On the good side, this new software is much faster, the page loads up pretty quickly, which is really something for the ones with poor net connection like me. Before, I had to wait ages for a long page to load.
On the down side, I don't like the icon for smile:--> it's weird you don't quite see the smile...
well I'll just go wander around our new resting place...

Sorry, but I just noticed something else. Every time I click on the "Currently Active Users" at the bottom of the main page it tells me that every single user online is viewing the "Main Index" (the main page for the forum).

I suppose it is possible that everyone just happenned to be on the main page every time I looked, but it is very unlikely.

Maybe because everyone was checking out the profile, calendar, and other facilities (at least that's what I was doing), and were not on a specific forum.

Evisse,

I'm not sure that's the case. I've seen a number of posts go up in individual forums, but the users online continues to say "main index".

Hi, y'all!
I don't know if this is a nit-picky complaint or not, but I thought I'd add it to the list anyway. I set my clock option in my profile to show me Central US time zone time while I browse here, but the current time that shows is consistently one hour earlier than the actual time here in the Central Time Zone. I don't know if this means anything... (except it is later than you think!)

Cheers!
Lyta

And, BTW, I haven't posted 478 times in The Movies, sure. I think no more than 20-30 posts for me there

That messing up must have something to do with what was originally posted on the EzBoard (though, again, I remember having some 1600 when we moved on to UBB)

On the other hand, maybe posts moved to Haudh-en-Ndengin archives does not count?

Ok, whatever, it does not matter much anyway

and it was just guessing of course

As for questions:

1 what about forename? (after The Phantom above)
2 what is message length? I mean not much recently, but I still sometimes post 4-5 A4 paper length messages
would they be clipped?


Otherwise, I like this new board more (a lot of new features) - and, main thing - I can post from my office! (the posting on the old one was blocked by firewall)

Some Answers (so far)

Why did we change software?
Speed - VBulletin is a lot faster, especially when searching.
Security – UBB was vulnerable to hacks, and we were in fact once seriously hacked.
Private Messaging – The vBulletin PM system is really fun. Try it out!
Upgrade – Our version of UBB was non-upgradeable. With vBulletin we can continue to have the best version of the program available. Actually, there is a big update coming soon that will probably correct all of our problems!

What’s New?
Spell check

Problems
My Post Count is Wrong! When we moved your account over to vBulletin, it recounted your posts. It did not count (1) Posts in the Movies (2) Posts in Closed Topics (3) Posts in deleted topics. Since we have no idea how many posts were not counted for each of you, there is no way to restore the old number to your account. Since post counts aren’t as important as the discussions you type, I’m sure most of you won’t mind the loss, anyhow.

View New Posts This feature is acting very strangely because it is still listing the old posts that we had postdated in order to keep them at the top of a forum. We will be working to fix this soon.

Currently Active Users This feature incorrectly shows everyone as being on the MAIN PAGE. We are researching this.

Personal Titles We are working to restore PTs, as soon as we figure out how

MOVIES – The Movies forum is empty. This was at first not intentional, but we came to see the absence of The Movie topics as a blessing in disguise. Now that the movies are all release, we can start over and begin a even more organized discussion of them.

Things look funny There are a lot of small images that I still need to change so they fit more in our color scheme. Though the layout of the forum is now slightly different than before, you’ll get used to it soon.

Avatar Size Avatars have always been limited to 64x64, so nothing has changed.

The clock is wrong Adjust it in your Profile until it is accurate.

Posts from 9 Feb 04 are missing! We warned you.

I really like the new forum, first I panicked, because I was so used to the old one, and I'm not comfortable with changes computerwise, but now I've checked it out, it really is a big improvement. The pages load much faster then they used to.

Just a little remark though: I seem to have a lot of "chinese" figures anywhere in the posts, apparently when accents are used. Is there a way to fix that?
(I'm sorry if this is a stupid question)

Whatever minor inconveniences, this one is better than UBB. I was able to find my very first post (or both my very first posts, as TarAncalime was me for one day too) in one go! voila:

When Elves Are Slain

It's great (besides that I have posting euphoria, seemingly - posting in a row like this, shame on me

No problems here so far. Sad about the movies forum, but change is good. Though here's a question: When I was looking at my profile and the like, it kept trying to take me to the lost password page when I would change something and save it. Just one of those first time using software bugs....

The UBB version of the forum will not be up forever. If you have PMs there that you want to keep, I recommend printing them out, because if they didn't make it over here, they never will.

The VEW NEW POSTS has been fixed (somewhat) and is working much better now. As soon as we get rid of the post-dating on the first 10 posts there, it will be 100% like before.

BW, and what about the missing fields in the user control panel? I mean (again) forename/surname, which are there once you view someone other's profile, but are nowhere to be filled in once you go to your own

thx

Shield limit on PM length

Congratulations, BW. This format moves much faster for me and the member search function is much easier to use--a defiite improvement for an RPG mod. All your hard work is much appreciated.

One limitation: the size of PMs appears to be limited. Is this a firm limit or can it be changed?

If it is firm, it will likely cause a change in some practices on the gaming fora. Pio, Child and I have used PMs for game proposals and also for help with editting to game and Inn posts. We can use emails, but this takes longer and is less convenient.

Can the size limitation on each PM be removed or could the size allowed be increased?

Aiwendil has been trapped in the Barrow!
Barrow-wight, I'd like to visit the UBB board and save some PMs before it goes down, but I can't recall the URL. Could you provide a link to it (or is there one somewhere that I'm missing)?
