We now have a SymSrv, almost as if we live in modern times! Send those crash reports in - we're ready for em. Huge thanks to r1pt1de who has helped streamline our dev process.

Some changes today resulting from user feedback.

  • New Bazaar posts will no longer appear in "What's New" aka "Activity Stream".*



  • If you want to see all new posts including the bazaar, use the "All New Posts" option.

  • Users can now ignore entire forums. Banish them from sight using "Forum Tools" on the forum's page.**

  • Users can now ignore threads. Banish them from sight using "Thread Tools" on the thread's page.**

  • Manage your ignored threads/forums from your settings.

*Old posts are still there, give them time to filter out.
**Ignoring a thread/forum will not remove it from the "What's New" activity stream. Sorry!

Made feedback scores visible in private messages.

Big updates to the forums coming soon, just waiting on vBulletin to make a few fixes.

  • New server, it's beefy, and it's for nothing but Redguides.
  • New backend software (LEMP)
  • DNS switched to Cloudflare.
  • Every piece of software we run has been updated, from vBulletin on down.
  • URL style has changed, but old URLs should redirect.

Known bugs:
  • I broke your Update.exe, you'll have to fix it or re-install.
  • Magelo/Zam tooltips have been removed because they break the site. I'll contact Zam/Magelo about switching to https.
  • IRC bot is down, will fix when I get time.

Please let me know if you run into any other bugs!

Maybe I am tripping but the # (Code) quick button used to be in the "Quick Reply" on posts.

I went to use it after the update this morning and it was gone. Either that or I don't remember always having to use - "Go Advanced" in order to find the quick button for the code tag.

I just submitted a thread to the Bazaar and received a confirmation email...instantly. I like it. If PM alerts come through that quickly, I will really like it. Thanks, Redbot!

Bad news for tooltips: they're not coming back any time soon.

At the moment this isn't something that can be changed. We'd eventually like to get to https but there are some limitations preventing us from doing so at this time.

Hopefully sometime in the relatively near future though. Sorry for any inconvenience in the meantime.

Best Regards,

  • Added ranks to the site, you'll see them above avatars.
  • Removed the plat coin from beside usernames of contributing members.
  • Removed all "automatic" user titles, they were from 2005 and not very amusing.
  • Messed up everyone's custom user title. See this thread to get yours fixed.
  • Verified users may now have user titles as well.

  • Added user tagging feature. To tag a user, simply add @ before their name and they'll get a notification.
  • Added quote notification feature. When your post is quoted, you'll get a notification.
  • Added tag & quote desktop notifications.

All notifications are site-only, no email spam. If you desperately want email notifications let me know.

There is an issue when you use [code=rich] tags and someone coincidentally has a name in your code, it may tag them as well as mess up your code. If this happens often I'll fix it, but for a temporary fix use the [noparse] tags when accidental mentions are popping up.

tagging example:

Maskoi


disable tagging example:

[noparse]@Redbot[/noparse]

Some big updates today:
  • Added a new payment processor for Paypal haters.
  • If you subscribed to Level 2 after July 2018, you can now cancel your subscription from our site (you can also still do it through paypal.com)
  • New forum software, Xenforo 2! We've modified it a bit, with too many changes to list.
  • Resource manager, it's a nice way to find macros / plugins.
  • Removed "plugin descriptions" and "read the friendly manual" forums as they've been replaced by the resource manager. Not a big loss, you only ever used it for the KissAssist manual.

  • Wiki posts have returned. To wiki-fy a post, just ask me here or in chat. If you'd rather do it yourself, select "thread collaboration" in thread tools, and then edit the post in the thread you wish to make collaborative.

  • Added an edit history to resources
12/12 update: a bug was found, the above features have been reverted

12/18 update: all bugs (hopefully) fixed, features have been returned.
