Exclamation A Few Forums Changes

If you'll notice, Krud has finally put up F@NB0Y$ logos on the header for each of the forums themes. Been a long time coming, and not all of them are perfect, so if you see any problems, let someone know. Gonna leave this thread here in suggestions for now for feedback like that actually, since it can't get responses in announcements.

Also, Profanity is now an administrator. So there's that! New admin!

And lastly, I'm gonna get off my ass right now and finally add those emotes that Addy's been asking about forever and I keep forgetting about.

I am a little excited about learning how to use PHP and shit, but I know next to nothing at the moment. If you need anything done please come to me and I'll do my best to help.

Prof replaces Gabby as admin, and mod names are now purple, since purple sits between red and blue. Also, purple is awesome.

I don't think I've changed anything else yet, but I'd like to create a default avatar gallery for new members just in case they'd rather just use a comic avatar or whatever. I've been on Krud about that and the forum header image, and at least one of those things got done recently, so we'll see!

Of course, if anyone wanted to cut up comics and make avatars themselves...

If you'd like to. I'd like to get Krud to make some higher quality custom ones, but that'll likely take him a good while to get around to. He said he would eventually, though.

I like the fact that YouTube embeds are now widescreen, so props for that.

Prof actually did that. Well, Prof and Zhao. The size still isn't right. It's a little off and it's bothering me, 'cause I'm OCD about stupid things. I think it's just because embeds have the control bar on the bottom of them and videos on the site don't. If I could find out exactly how big that bar is, I could add it to the new size and the videos would be perfectly sized.

I guess I could screen cap a video embed and wing it.

The bar is only 25, but I can try that.

I just made it 900 in height, so it's not gonna give me anything over 360. Means I'm gonna have to try subtracting 25 from the width instead?

EDIT: Nope. Eh, whatever. Widescreen is good enough. I'll live with the letterbox.

Haaaaa. That's what I was thinking about when I thought about putting this together. I think art done specifically for avatars would be pretty cool, though.

We could but i think the logic behind why it's no longer enabled is because of malicious things that could be done with it. We have no trouble just linking to flash anyway so maybe it's fine as is.

Gabby set it to eight and I've never really had an issue with that. You put it too much higher and people (like myself) tend to start abusing it and posting far too much in a single page. I'm fine with more, personally, but I'm gonna assume not everyone has as fast a connection as I do.

If it's eight and he wants it to 10, just leave it. No real reason to make a small change. Eight is enough.

The way to prevent malicious code in flash is to put all users of a certain level in a group and allow them flash privileges.

On the flip side if someone is an utter dick or ignorant it doesn't protect you.

Linking is fine. Support for more sites embedding would be nifty though.

Wow, I feel really bad about taking so long to do the thing and now Krud's done it...

Any, yay for Prof being an admin now. If you need help with anything FTP/PHP wise I'm still here, and since it's not graphical I won't spend 3 months making things I don't like and deleting them.

I did notice threads not becoming 'read' after viewing them. Don't know if that's related to anything new or not though.
