  1. bmn added a post in a topic What's with the removal of community-made banners?   

    Different banner dimensions.
  2. bmn added a post in a topic The seemingly declining member rate   

    Every so often we do delete a member (e.g. the support accounts created so the forum developers can access the board to fix bugs etc).
    The number shown is every account that still exists since the last complete wipe in 2009. It includes banned members, accounts created to attempt to ban dodge, non-validated accounts (a reasonable number, as a result of a period about a year ago where emails weren't being reliably sent)...
  3. bmn added a post in a topic Status Updates are Broken (aka mass hysteria begins now)   

    This should be resolved now. As we expected, this was introduced by the latest software update (the short period of downtime also). Apologies to the billions of people all over the world who were gravely affected by not having status updates...
    More information
  4. bmn added a post in a topic Revert forum/post search to previous IPB style?   

    Topic searching (and prioritising of title matches when not searching topics) is in the works (link). From what I've read, the core of the search system is improved (it's a lot easier to maintain on my end, at least) and it's really just a case of adding capabilities and displaying results in a way that makes more sense to the user.
    Status searching I've seen no mention of, but it may happen at some point in the future.
    The unfortunate part of IPS' approach to this new major version is that they've decided to go back to a blank slate (first time they've done so - every major version previously, including IPB1 with its predecessor Ikonboard, has recreated the previous version's feature set and then developed on top of it) and have purposefully left out a lot of minor features to see if they were actually necessary in the first place. The idea being that, if the demand is there for one of them, they redevelop said feature. That, of course, makes transition more difficult for established communities like ours - the staff appreciated that this would be case, and if not for the multitude of issues we had with our IPB3 installation, we likely would have delayed the IPS4 update until a few of the gaps were filled.
    But, we didn't, and now you get to enjoy inferior search engines
    P.S. Awards coming back soon, promise.

    Display name history is a tool in the admin CP, but I don't know if it's available anywhere else.

    I feel like this is something that could be modified (with a bit of work), but I'd kinda like to see how it goes like this. Fresh start, and all that

    Statuses and comments apparently count as posts now... you're quite the status monster it seems

    An anthropomorphic black hedgehog with spiky hair holds a handgun and other weapons,  striking an attacking pose with an unhappy expression on his face. A stylized explosion is visible in the background. The words "Shadow the Hedgehog" adorn the top of the screen, as does a red logo that resembles the hedgehog's head.

    Can you disable the "use my Twitter photo as forum photo" feature on the Twitter settings page here?

    I like this idea, and it's fairly easy to do so.
    This I think is a growing pain, as you said. There's quite a lot of data rebuilding going on behind the scenes, which may take about a week to complete. That might also be the reason things are a little slow.
    That's definitely in the pipeline... at some point >_>
    Absolutely, that's done now
    Insert existing attachment I believe is to select something you've uploaded previously, so you don't have to do it again and waste more of your upload quota.
     
    I've opened this up again. It was originally enacted when certain characters broke features of the old forum, but I think the new one should be able to handle it better.
     
     
    Thanks also to Tara for keeping on top of answering people in this topic 👍

    You can also create statuses from the "+ Create" button at the top of every page.
  13. bmn added a post in a topic Sonic Runners (iOS/Android) - Thread Version 2.0   

    Runners doesn't activate immersive mode. It's possible to set the app to do so on a rooted device, but not otherwise I think.

    Shahra is very useful, particularly at higher levels. She frequently gives you Magnet, Shield and Invincibility, all of which are really useful (especially at max speed) and can extend your runs a hell of a lot.
