    I'd like to implement a poll plugin so there can be voting. Thoughts?

    Anyone have any experience with https://github.com/hgtonight/DiscussionPolls ?

    -nvm- thought the voting plugin was polls :(

    This is going to be interesting.

    I like that! We had polls back over at Vanilla, would love to have them here as well :-)

    Yeah, we should probably do that as well. But I believe we're back to manual approval now, @Liam?

    I know this is probably a stretch, but does anyone know how threads in certain categories were previously set to auto sink? I can't find an option for is in the dashboard and I can't seem to find a plugin that offers that functionality.

    @jbiloh - IIRC it's part of the default vanilla install. Click the drop down next to the thread on the category listing. On that drop down is a "sink" button.

  • Can the thread page automatically play Imperial March wherever @jbiloh appears?

    Just joking, what about personalised post time? Users can set timezone in the settings, and all page times show in the timezone specified.

  • jbilohjbiloh Administrator

    The WhosOnline plugin is broken in this version of Vanilla. We're working to fix it though, nearly there in fact.

    I'll look into that suggestion @sundaymouse and for the record, I'm not Darth Vadar, we leave that job for Alex. :)

  • Could you add something like a creditbutton? So we can 'moderate' posts? Spotlight = +2, On-Topic = +1, Normal = 0, Off-Topic = -1.

    That'd be the reaction plugin, which is broken on this version if I remember right :(

    We made more CSS changes today and we've got it almost perfect.

    We widened the content area (reducing the width of the right side column), fixed the visuals around the LEB/WIKI pocket and made a few other visual improvements.

    This week we'll also fix the remaining missing content in the Wiki, get WhosOnline back and fix any final issues.

  • Sent a new file to Jon, removing the unneeded thread titles now (since I somehow forgot about them). Anybody else notice anything out of the ordinary that I need to fix up?

    @Magiobiwan I can take a stab at the mobile theme, was already considering making it green rather than blue :P

    This is going to be interesting.

  • jbilohjbiloh Administrator

    Do you think we should bold the thread title here: Home › General › Feedback & Suggestions

    Perhaps making it a bit more noticeable?

    Jon Biloh
  • Pin it perhaps? It keeps sinking.

    Sure, just find <span itemprop="title">{$Title}</span> in views/default.master.tpl and change it to <span style="font-weight: bold;" itemprop="title">{$Title}</span>

    This is going to be interesting.

  • jbilohjbiloh Administrator

    Do you agree that bold might be the way to go?

    is how the result is, I don't mind either way really.

  • The threadtitle is already written in bold below the breadcrumbs, no need to make it bold 2 times

    i suggest we use a tool for top provider poll so that we get election results faster. the suspense is killing me

    hehe ;-) It would be easier but it would be harder to find fake voters/SPAM accounts.

    Thoughts on creating a rule limiting signatures to 2 lines?

    Jon Biloh
  • @jbiloh said:

    Personally wouldn't mind, 3 would be fine as well. 4 or more is a bit too much for Vanilla's appearance, if you ask me.

    @jbiloh said:

    Yes. I saw some terrible 6 - 7 lines long signatures recently.
    Even easier would be to simply enforce them (i.e http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/20970/is-there-is-any-way-to-limit-signature-length) instead reminding people all the time about rules.

  • jcalebjcaleb Moderator

    @Spirit said:

    Yep.

    How many lines do you think is best?

  • SpiritSpirit Disabled

    One or two.

    (few words about company + url can easily fit into one line)

    @rm_ it's not just one guy, to be honest. Recently I asked someone (I won't name him here) if he can reduce signature from (I think) 7 long lines of text to something shorter but the most I saw today was 9 lines. Some people have more text in signature than in their posts.
    If we check few posts above non intrusive signaure from @mpkossen (considering he use only half line) we can get very good idea how much text we can put into one line.

    Sometimes you have to push the rules too far to get them changed in the way that you wish.
