O.K. everyone put away that Playboy for a sec - heres a simple question for ya:

I really, really , REALLY hope that i finally can get the frontpage changes done that i planned for so long, and from you i would like to know whether the new VIP Banner (to be placed on top of CMPS frontpage) should be animated (possibly distracting but nicer) or static (less distracting but more boring).

Simple two-choice affair, so just hit that button and register your vote,...

Ok, thanks for the info. What does CMPS mean?

I don't think it makes a great difference if it's animated or not, but I mean it's probably easier to find for new members, if it's animated, so I will vote 'Animated'.

What Playboy? Is there a new version of the table made by Kurt?

Edit: Huch!?

Its part of the forum software.

vBadvanced CMPS (Content Management & Portal System) is an advanced portal / CMS that allows you to easily include elements from your vBulletin message board on your web site's homepage, or other pages. It's module system (w/ 14 default modules included) makes almost every aspect of the software easy to customize and change through your Admin CP. Easily create and manage new pages with your own custom content with the ability to change every setting on a per-page basis. Integrating CMPS modules with your vBulletin forum pages can also be done with no file modifications required.

Ok, thanks for info again. CMPS sounds too technical to me, but most probably a nice addition.

I was sure you mean the other Playboy. No girls around?

One function of the CMPS is to collect stats from a forum. Thats why it makes for such an excellent frontpage because it has modules that can list the latest threads, new posts in existing threads, show infos such as calendar, news, whos online, user details, links and all the other stuff you see there now. In one word it shows you what is going on in a forum and provides all sorts of extra features.

Animated for sure. It's needs to catch people's eye. The current one is nice, but I find it a little hard to read - needs a bit more contrast IMO.

When i made that one i used a TFT and on TFTs it actually looks brilliant.

I had no idea it would look like crap on a CRT, which i only realized when i switched monitors.

Anyway, the next one will be made on a CRT (a CAD one even) so it should be O.K. for both types of monis then,...


P.S.: Seems like animated is going to be the winner huh? And here i hoped you all would say static so i dont need to do so much work,...:mrgreen:

(EDIT: Just kidding, of course.)

    where is the unapprove option, anyway? is that a super mod thing or something from the admin panel?

  • @ Ike Savage:
    oh wait, I see it

  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    true, but they could also be invisible to users and perhaps allow the category to be removed
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Don't know, do know that if you delete a category all files would also be removed so that's bad,

  • @ Ike Savage:
    seems like we discussed it in some length at one point and came up with the current arrangement, but I don't have a strong opinion on that stuff. the one thing I do like is that I can clear out weaker tables from the main section without deleting them
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Sounds fine to me Ike, can't disagree with ya!
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    is it that you want to declutter more of the resources section?
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    No it's fine
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    also, just to be clear-- the issue with "unapprove" is that you don't know if the table actually gets deleted from the server, right? AFAIK I have no way of seeing where the tables actually lie on the server, so it's something I can't test effectively
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    They wouldn't get deleted from the server, I don't think.
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Can we get back to the subdomain folders/files, the uploads.pinballnirvana.com folder is where uploads would need to be, just wondering what might need to be deleted..
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    do you mind a phone call? probably easier to discuss, save some wear and tear on my hands, too
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    No problems Ike, can't talk now but will try and set this up.

  • @ Ike Savage:
    okay, well let me know if you need space cleared up across the torrent area, because I have some ideas

    The file is actually on the server in FP originals but isn't public.

    Um, so, Hi!. What did I miss? (he says as though he ducked to the toilet while the adds were on...)
    Quote
  • @ AnonTet:
    Hi guys, I«m asking here as it might have a quicker response. How can I check the ball size used by authors in FP? or at least the default size if anyone knows. Thanks
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    Most FP authors use the default size and don't know how to use BAM to alter it.
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    I think it may be 13.8 though
    Quote
  • @ AnonTet:
    Thanks. But while I've waited I've looked at a ring around a ramp in LotR that's 26mm so i figure the ball being 24mm. A bit short of real life ball size if that's so.
    Quote
  • @ AnonTet:
    of course I could've used my brains earlier and create a table with some carefully spaced guides and check that the ball is in fact 27mm in diameter. Peeking at fp.exe and bam.dll and there's no way to change this. you can set the colour and the id to track it though (but that's known)
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    With Bam custom ball coding you can create balls of any size...see my titorial
