/cast [Thread Necromancy]

Things I've added in.

Spoiler tags. Had them before, got them again. These are swanky tags, though, and work like this.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.


Put anything you want between the spoiler tags, and even add a title. As such.
Code: [Select]
[spoiler=Critical Alert Plz Red][img]http://i.imgur.com/nsgA2RM.jpg[/img][/spoiler]Use the button at the top when posting to use it, or type it out yourself.



Dice roll. As anyone who is aware of the giveaway things knows, there's a dice roll function now. You use it like the chat one, selecting what you want to roll, up to a d1000, and you put that value between some [roll] tags. This can be done for you by clicking on the button when posting. It's tamper-proof, so editing it will let everyone know you're a cheat. Also lets people know if you try to post the resulting code. So what's that mean?

Rolled 1d5 : 5, total 5

This dice roll has been tampered with!
Rolled 1d6 : 3, total 3

It means you can't cheat.



Bookmarks. Someone mentioned that they want to be able to bookmark threads for later. So now you can. There's a new button at the top and bottom of every thread that's right next to the Reply button. Clicking on that adds it to your bookmarks. You can access your bookmarks by going to the Bookmarks link in the navbar at the top of the site. Hard to miss.



That's all for now, but if you have a suggestion for the site, click on the Suggestion Box link in the navbar and fill out the form.

Added functionality for more genders and shit, because of Cheeky being a cunt(boy). Right now, there's a couple transgender ones and an intersexed. The icons suck, so I'll try to source some better ones at some point or another, unless Cheeky wants to do some legwork for me.

Managed to get this working as well. Sexual orientation, which can be displayed on your profile. It can be found under Profile > Forum Profile, at the bottom of the page.


http://www.furry-within.com/index.php?action=profile;area=forumprofile

Comes with handy little picture beside your orientation.

When you don't select an orientation, for some reason a blank field moves to be beneath your email section. Not sure what's up with that. Oh well, it's not a big deal.

September Site Updates - Chat Changes & Public Events
« Reply #36 on: September 23, 2016, 10:10:26 AM »
Been a while since I posted here. Suppose that's indicative.

Anyway. Some things are going to be changing and I thought I'd give people a heads up. There's one change coming to the chat, and a hopefully large amount of changes coming to everywhere else.

Chat Changes
First, the chat. And let me start off by saying that this is just temporary, to try and get a reading on how much this kind of thing is liked.
So, here it is. Starting on Monday 26th (for the US. So probably 27th for international users), the main channel of the chat will be primarily RP. I'm going to be doing a write-up and a 3D mock-up of the club so that people can read and see what it's about. This information will become available at around the same time as this change.
Out of character talk (OoC) will be minimised and if it gets to be too invasive, users or staff can ask those persons to move to another channel, or take it to whispers. (Users, please don't be dicks about it.)

The thinking behind this is that, a lot of the time, we have OoC dominating the chat, even when people are trying to RP. I've had more than a few remarks that it's distracting, ruins the atmosphere etc when someone starts bringing up politics, or some other boner-killing topic while they're trying to have some light RP.

It's also a means to try and encourage people to just RP more. Simple as that.

It should also be stated that sex in the main channel is still not permitted. If your RP starts to head in that direction, staff or other users can politely ask you to take it to whispers or another room.

I feel as though I've gone on about this long enough to drive the point home, but if people want further elaboration, please post in this thread.

Public Events

The next change is also of an experimental nature. Put simply, public events. These are open events that anyone is welcome to join, encompassing an array of activities.

Such events as:
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.


Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.


Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.


Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

None of this is set in stone just yet, but when I decide on when the first even is going to be, I'll be making it very well-known.



Well, that's all for now. I strongly encourage anyone with opinions on this update (positive and negative, I can take it) to post below. Have a discussion. Feedback, people, I need it.

All right. Update time.

So, good news, bad news. Bad news is that creating a 3D layout of the EoTC is taking a little longer than I predicted. Technical issues beyond my control are responsible.

Good news is that the new policy is now active. Here's what that means specifically.

The main channel of the chat (The End of Time Club) is now primarily an RP channel. This means that it's asked that you're in character whilst in the channel. Out of Character, or OoC, talk is by no means banned outright, however if your OoC talk starts to bother others, they may POLITELY ask you to please either take it to whispers, or to another channel.

A description of the chat has been provided, and can be viewed here. The Monday deadline was probably a bit too close for me, so things are kind of all over the place for me right now, but I should have everything in order within the next few days. I'll post to this thread when I've got all the info in one place.

Anyway, the chat channel list has also (temporarily) been pruned to just IC and OoC chat.

These changes are on a trial run. If, after a couple of weeks, these changes are viewed favourably, they'll stay. If not, they'll be reverted.

enjoy

I've added a few old functions from back in the day.

/lfrp will set your status to Looking for RP
/ooc will set your status to Out of Character
/back will revert any changes to your username.

Please note that these will revert your username to the one you log in with, and not the nickname you've changed to.

If anyone has any other recommendations for status texts, or even chat features that they'd like to see, post them here and I'll consider it if it's at all possible.

Would there be any way to make an announcement by FW_Command when people set their status to afk? Might end up being too spammy, not sure. But it could be nice rather than talking to someone for a while, then looking up to see that their username has changed to afk. Just a QoL change, not a huge deal.

I've added in some extra profile fields that link to external sites. Some of them display within threads, as you can see on mine, and others are only viewable within profiles.

Due to the way the addon works, I wasn't able to get the Discord and Skype fields to not be links. As such, they just link to their respective websites, despite showing the info. So you'll just need to copy/paste stuff like we used to do in the old days.

I can add in pretty much anything if people want other places. Right now, there's Twitter, YouTube, DeviantArt, FurAffinity, Twitch, Discord and Skype. I could add in lots myself, but I'm not sure how many would be used, and I'd rather not clutter things up.

Additionally, I've added in a special diceroll feature to the chat. In preparation for upcoming events, there's now a GM diceroll function. It functions exactly like the improved diceroll that we've had for a while, with the exception that it only shows you the diceroll result. It can be used by typing /gm for a standard D20 roll, or by adding regular diceroll arguments after it.

For example:

/gm +4
/gm +9/2
/gm 3d20+3

Updated chat guidelines within the site rules section. Please familiarise yourselves with these guidelines and let any of the staff know if you need clarification on these rules.
