It's quite tidy upgrade (at least we can fully use unused white area in our wide monitor :tongue:). Hopefully we could keep all our features as of now. :smile:

I like the new VBulletin version,stylish and many plug-ins

I hope the forums upgrade will be ready soon:tongue:

well, actually many plugins from the old version have not been ported to 4.x so a few features will change or be left out completely.

the style dösn't matter because our main theme is custom anyway but there will be a few other styles to choose from as well

Are suggestions for upgrades still accepted?

Here's one regarding security of the site

We currently have
username
password

but to increase security why not add an extra
logon name, a name only u will know and not anyone else, apart from of course staff
[username], renamed to screen name
[password], same use

Benefits: An extra secuity step
since SBI doesnt use a "ban after x tries" some malicious tracker or whoever can hack into passwords of some outspoken member whether they be staff or below.
Maybe staff need to input an extra "staff" password in order to gain higher privilleges but this 3rd step doesnt protect other members.

Changing the password often is a good thing but this still leaves the username (screen name) open. If the secret logon name is used it would increase secuity by a lot.

possible feedback
wtf do u think this is a banking site :lol:

reply
It contains huge amounts of information that should be protected, I mean how else are we going to annoy tracker staff effectively? :lol:

fakeking
13.07.10, 03:26
Oh, my bad. I must accept rules first the magically it will appear :biggrin:. Instab, do you see those un-welcomed quests :shifty:. We will catch their IP and report them :tongue:

that would indeed increase the security but it's a bit over the top don't you think?
i mean it's not that we'd have been hacked every 2 weeks or so :P

You must only check the box nex to accept.
Then the rules will never be shown again.

The 20s are the time to read the rules.

# Spreading of our "Products"

You're not allowed to post our mods on any other site without a written permission from one of our Admins, Mods or Supporters! Because this is a very important point, we won't only ban you for violating this, we'll also share your IP with the whole Tracker scene which can cause a ban on nearly every tracker!

As far i know you don't log IPs, so how you want to spread them?

Rebound
13.07.10, 13:57
If we have catched a leaker, it's easy to collect his ip's some days and share it after that. But you're right. Our forum software don't log ip addresses.

The only problem of the skin in beta status is the colour of "Forum Rules" button. You can read it because is green. Maybe you can change the color of the Forum Rules button with the Enlighten skin... for the other this skin work ok... I love it, because remember me the skin before the update.

Actually I think one of the reasons why the current forum loads so much faster and better, (ie you dont have to (sometimes) re-re-reload a page because the thanks or rep buttons dont work) is because there is less stuff to load and less load on the servers.

there's a problem with the httpS.. the certificate specifically.
getting this in Opera in 1 out of 4 times I open SBI:

(1) The server's name "www.sb-innovation.de" does not match the certificate's name "confixx". Somebody may be trying to eavesdrop on you.
(2) The certificate for "confixx" is signed by the unknown Certificate Authority "confixx". It is not possible to verify that this is a valid certificate.
(3) The certificate for "confixx" expired 1/13/2010 8:52:00 PM GMT. The webmaster should update the certificate(s).

Bad news for that. It will be not updated for vB4, so it's not possbible for us to add it again.

Well maybe We just need to wait for the upadate of this plug in,vB4 is a new version so not many plug ins will be working at the moment

Think of it this way since (I presume) each rep bar has a higher value to it, gaining a star will be even more valuable than before

Rep bars, fakeking, are representative of other peoples appreciation of you on this forum ;)

They dont grant any special forum access privilages per se, nor can a star grant the bearer decree over minion

Simply stated if u have many then your work has been appreciated to the extent people rep you :top:

If you miss the "exclude subforums from new posts list" hack, you can take advantage of vB's "exclude" parameter in the meantime. For example, this link will block a large chunk of the German area:

http://www.sb-innovation.de/search.php?do=getnew&contenttype=vBForum_Post&exclude=2,92,7,12,139,19,155,140,107,221,26,222,4, 8,17,25,18,31,156,33,34,27,21,126,161,29,30,38,35, 32,37,39,40,227,217

I don't know did someone already reported slightly annoyance that I have as well and which is: This is bilingual board, I have no use of german subforums (especially "Politik & Diskussionen", "Fussball"...) nor they can have use of me. So I disable them in settings to not be shown on my sb-i frontpage. However, when I search for new posts, I get presented german topics as well, which is not desired behavior and it was not case on previous version of forum. So I spend more time now to go throu all unread topics manually reading-skipping the ones written in language I can not communicate in. Which is bothersome.

Just my 2c.

It's a built-in vB feature, although not a full solution - it won't take the posts away from the "You Have X Unread Posts" in the header, nor does it integrate itself with the new posts search like the old one did (unless you make a script that rewrites the HTML code or something).

It's still better than having to dodge the German area threads. They have an insane amount of activity over there :biggrin:

19.07.10, 15:06
Well,the problem is that rep design didn't have the star and it looked like anon had nearly the same amount of rep as me.:unsure:

Sazzy
19.07.10, 15:15
iirc it had a star, seeing as anon had one, the problem was that the levels to obtain said star were much much higher than the current system. However, nothing is stopping them from just taking the image files and replacing the current ones with those. (So you'd still have your star and 3 green bars, just with the prettier images).

I don't recall seeing a golden bar, however, that's a half minute photoshop job that anyone can do. Star, green and light green existed for sure since I've seen those.

So in the end that would give current system with a graphic boost...

What Sazzy suggested was to change the graphic of the bars back to the default, since it looked more fitted for the new board layout, if I understood correct.

Maybe Sazzy could provide us a link of a forum which uses the default layout. :)

Magic of the computer. Stuff magically stops and starts working at random

My hiPhone's USB interface stopped working around a week ago. Now all the phone will do when plugged to my PC is begin charging the battery. So as I had to go downtown to buy some stuff today, I got a card reader in my way home. The box says it can read 52 different kinds!

OK, now I'll post something relevant to the topic. Issues like the one mmmmm mentioned are often caused by JavaScript not kicking in. Make sure it's enabled for our forum (specially if you're running Firefox+NoScript), and if you haven't cleared your browser's cache ever since we switched to vB4, do it.
