Post by The Dude on Wed 13 Oct 2010 - 12:09

Updates to the forums will be posted here:

12 October 2010
- Job/Hobbies now two separate things (Jobs -> Occupation; Hobbies -> Interests/Hobbies) in your profile options
- Added a little text field where you can type in your favorite civ
- Removed that thing that said attack with the dice
- Removed unnecessary large smiles
- Added new smilies!

21 October 2010
- Added a cool little announcement/news bar where an admin can post updates.

18 April 2011
- Auto-Censor for swearing removed (about time), all ethnic slurs will now be censored instead.

19 April 2011
- Added three new Commoner rank pictures: Bronze, Silver and Gold
- Added a new rank for those who have been with K&B since the beginning: K&B Elite Team Member

- Added a new rank for members of a major mod, much like VIPs: Modder

23 April 2011
- Changed the Forum Moderators so that each forum now has one or more specific moderators. This does not remove moderator powers from others, it just gives forumers a point of contact.
- Brought back the chatbox, as some forum members seem to be quite fond of it.

Minor Forum Changes 24/2/13

The mobile site has been updated, you should now be able to log on, and post and replay to topics, making in actually useful. It's still a bit of a pain to use, considering the fact if you're browsing a 20 page topic, you're going go through page by page. As of right now, I don't believe there is any quick page finder thing. Regardless, kudos to Forumotion to improving a system which I thought they forgot about, and here's hoping they finish it!

Also, I've added a lightbox thingy. Basically, when you click on any picture on the forum (unless said picture has a link it it) it will bring up a more zoomed in version of that pictured. Here's a sample:



I also am considering another major forum update. No promises, but I'll be looking into some cool features I could add to spice up the forum. Wink

Added a Features page, with brief overview of K&B and general features such as Civilization outlines. In the future, we will make a list of all Random Maps in K&B and write about strategies of each one.

The FMChat chatbox in bottom-right corner of the forum has been disabled due to known problems, which caused forum to direct to other site for IE users.

A similar, AvacWeb Chat has been added to replace the previous chatbox. In fact, it is much better than the previous one, as it is almost completely customizeable with plug-ins and supports private chat rooms.

The Twitter Feed from top of the Portal has been removed due to non-working code. A new Twitter Box widget has been added to left side of Portal and it shows the three latest tweets from K&B Twitter.

It seems that Forumotion has messed up the URL of the forum, knightsandbarbarians.com doesn't seem to work anymore. Meanwhile I try to contact Forumotion, the URL is knightsandbarbarians.heavenforum.org.

Still, merry Christmas everyone! Smile

Once again this time of the year we're experiencing an issue with the forum domain being expired. We're working on the issue and it should be resolved as soon as possible.
