Site Updates.

Post by Tusky » Mon Oct 16, 2017 10:17 am

Hey guys,

First and foremost, we want to thank you all for making the move across go so smoothly. You all could have dug your heels in or all voted no, but y'all are super awesome and let us do what we needed to. Thanks so much!

Regarding the site, we're 99% there, however, we still need to implement reactions for you guys. Unfortunately, we are having issues regarding this. Basically, when we add it to the files, the extension won't show up on the site. Nolitaflat and I have tried many different ways of getting this to work, however we can't seem to get any extensions running.

So if there are any tech-savvy people out there who are familiar with phpbb, or using cPanel to add files, we could really use your help!

Once we are able to do this, we can finish off the site!

<3

Hi all,

So we got ads working but we see that they're a LOT right now. We're working on scaling them back to a less intrusive number. Bear with us please :)

I know you're working on the ads because there is too many (which there are!) but they're also too big.

The ads are bigger than the thread column, so you need to set a size on the ad box to stop it extending beyond the thread column

Yeah, I saw that. I was still fucked up from anesthesia from a procedure yesterday, so I did as best as I could, but wasn't able to change the ad size yet. I'll work more on it today.

The adds also appear to highlight the individual.
The adds are identifying things I recently viewed (and purchased).
Thus, the adds may put one's identity at risk.

The ads are through google adsense which is what most websites use as they are more legitimate than most. I believe they use your enabled cookies purely to tailor the ads to you. its the same thing as youtube use, and is very similar to ads on facebook. We would never add anything that puts your identity at risk. We felt a legitimate trusted company was better than a 3rd party advertiser. I hope that puts your mind at ease!

You asked for it! (Well not really but I’m sure you missed it..) and we brought it back. Member ranks! Based off of amount of posts. I still have to figure out how to put little symbols like stars like we had on the old site, but I’m working on it! 🙂
