Question Official Questions Thread

This thread is for questions on how to use existing functionality. All posts that are OT will be removed.

Also, vbulletin comes with a very good base FAQ section: http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/faq.p...=vb3_board_faq

I will try to answer as many questions as possible as time permits.

Default Re: Official Questions Thread

Ooh, I have one! Is there any way to get the forum to e-mail you when a new post is made to a subscribed thread? I used to find that feature extremely useful, but so far haven't managed to find it.

Edit: Answer to my own question. In the control panel, click "List subscriptions" on the left. Once the list's come up, tick the tick boxes on the far right next to the ones you want to be e-mailed for. Then use the action list (labelled "Selected Threads:") below the list of subscriptions to choose the kind of notification you want, and finally click "Go".

Very nice!

No problem. User cp-->edit options-->Messaging and Notifications-->Default Thread Subscription Mode-->then choose either instant email notification, daily email notification or weekly email notification.

Default was set to no email so as to not flood someone's email or think we are spamming them.

Since yesterday new registered users won't be auto subscribed to threads they have posted in so they will have to find this setting on their own.

Okay, I have another question! What does the little grey blob above the level graphs mean? For some people it is green, and if you hover over it in that case it says "X is on a distinguished road". lch, for example, is on such a road. Cryptic.

lol@cryptic

It's the reputation system. If you click on the little scales set at the top right corner of a post you can give people reputation points. The more reputatation you get the higher the level you are. I think everyone starts out as "username is an unknown quantity at this point"....the image changed because they got reputation points and are no longer and 'unknown quantity'. You can give reputation to 10 people per day, but you have to give 20 reputation points before you come back to the same person.

Ok,I noticed that mindi is level 39,but she is only a major.But I've seen someone thats a Brig. Gen but is only level 34,so I assume that level and rank has nothing to do with each other?

Mine says level up 92%,so when it reaches 100% I wont become a corporal?

Addendum to the reputation: there's some update of stats that needs to happen before this works completely correctly. That probably won't happen until this weekend because anything that has to update user or post table is server intensive and we are trying to minimalize any possibility of downtime or even slowdown.

Okay onto the next question, the bars are from a mod called vbexperience. We haven't done anything with this modification yet (low priority right now), but basically it's another way of measuring your activity here taking into account more than just post count. If you look on your user profile there is a tab for it, but right now it's not a main tab so you have to click the little arrow icon (should look like the last tab in user profile). That tab has more information about what each bar stands for.

I just saw you edit, no you would still be a corporal. Basically we can eventually make vbexperience a rewards system for additional privileges on the board. Like I said, right now it is base install though so it's just going to show you the level that you are on and how far to the next one, etc.
