Default Re: New Feature: Thread Prefixes

I'll get to work on this. Only thing that I want to know: will people get notifications from the forum if I edit their top post because of this, or won't they? I wouldn't like it if they do, for something like this.

From what I have seen, no. They won't get notifications if you edit their post. (The first post of the thread at least.) Edi made an edit to my map list post and I received no notification.

Default Re: New Feature: Thread Prefixes

I have added prefixes to the threads in the first three pages of the Dom3 Mods & Maps subforum. Only for the first post, so maybe using it during searches isn't too reliable, but at least you can easily make out what is what when browsing the forum.

I noticed some kind of problem which seems to have occurred during the site transfer, I'll report it now.

I fear the task of adding MP prefixes to the threads in the MP subforum. Maybe it would be easier to write a bot that does it everywhere to all the threads and then remove the prefixes again for stuff that doesn't qualify, by hand. :P

Default Re: New Feature: Thread Prefixes

I added prefixes to three more pages. Only looked for threads with attachments this time to speed up the process, so I might have missed one thing or the other.

What would help make this easier, either a button for Moderators to directly set thread prefixes, or a possibility to directly go to advanced edit mode without the simple edit mode (where you can't edit titles) in-between.

Oh, and also, the order in which the thread prefixes appear seems to generated randomly every time. They're not at fixed positions in the list. Very strange.

Default Re: New Feature: Thread Prefixes

My comments were for Ballbarian who had an itchy trigger finger and wanted to help out. Please don't consider my comments a mandate to go through the whole forum gettting everything prefixed. That's way too time consuming for any one person to do.

Default Re: New Feature: Thread Prefixes

Nah, it's manageable if I do three pages per day. We'll have the whole things prefixed after some time. I'd clean up stuff by moving it into appropriate subforums, too, if that wouldn't generate notification mails.

Default Re: New Feature: Thread Prefixes

AAR's are mainly in the last posts. And they might be more interesting to people than most MP threads. So you could start at the end going forward

Edit: sory, it was the mods you were tinkering with, not the MP thread.

Default Re: New Feature: Thread Prefixes

To correct myself, it's enough to tag the first post so that all the replies carry the same prefix, too. About a third of the mods&maps forum is done now, I noticed that Edi has joined in with the prefix tagging.

Yeah, I did. The Mod List in its current form is pretty hard to use, so I figured in redoing it and turning the old one to a reporting thread so any new additions can be linked there and then added to the actual list. The original is WAY over the character limit and thus uneditable.
