Map Submissions - Question
Hi, i have a question re submitting maps (in news section) - i posted 3 maps recently, two SP maps got posted but the 3rd one (deatchmach map) landed in general thread - is there some rule behind it, or otherwise, what was the reason? :)
That was me, I felt that dm maps are generally not this board’s focus, most people here gravitate to sp. it’s not a hard and fast rule but with 3 submissions in a row it seemed like a good idea to give more attention to the sp maps
I'd have approved the DM map as news as well.
But OTOH havimg a video instead of screenshots should be punished by a slow and lingering death.
FYI, with SleepwalkR's help we just switch the site over to using HTTPS for everything.
I had to do some PHP fixes to remove any hard-coded "http" references in pages, so there is a tiny chance that it broke something, let me know if you guys see anything not working right.
Also let me know if you see any browser warnings like "parts of this webpage are insecure" or something like that.
Nice One Metl And Sleepwalkr
Remove My Post #142

Just uploaded a small change -- if you are logged out, you can no longer view "all" posts for long threads in a single page, it will limit you to pages of 25 at a time. (the forum UI still says "All X" but it just takes you to the first page of posts.)
If you are logged in, it still works as before.
With nitin gone (I hope he's doing ok?), would it make sense to get a new moderator?
Maybe somebody in the western timezones.
Maybe, the volume of activity here is pretty low, so it doesn't seem strongly needed, but I guess if people feel the lag time on getting news submissions approved is too high, or there's too much of a delay on deleting spam posts, we could consider it. I guess someone in australia/japan would be the best, since we already have UK, Moscow, and west coast US.
(what that means is that fw is australian and has been getting the bad end of news approval delay a bit)
I keep linking the release threads on Quaddicted, but there's little point to it if only registered users can post in them. In my opinion, it should be allowed to reply in news threads without an account, even if only for the occasional casual/drive-by feedback that would otherwise be lost, and potentially bring back that 1% of activity to the board.
Contrary to previous claims, spam didn't seem like that big of an issue before in that regard.
I disagree. The spam here was unbearable for a while.
At Least Not
much bigger than it was years before, and when it did increase was after access got restricted.
If it was unbearable or not is another topic i won't get into.
I think it's worth linking from Quaddicted anyway. Func has links to discord, and QuakeOne forums, both of which are not usable without an account. It still helps connect different shards of the community.
However, I'm not currently willing to relax the posting restriction. We'd have to have some tech improvements to the board to be worth the experiment. The main problem, I think, is that spam still bumps a thread and still counts as a "new" post on the forum page. This makes it extra frustrating for people using the forum page to see what's new.
