English is my second language, so you unfortunately have to deal with bad grammars and missing contexts.

English being your second language has nothing to do with it. When I say 'context' I don't mean that your English is improper. Far from it--you do a decent job of getting your point across.

I mean 'context' as in the context your question is asked. I am assuming that your question isn't random, and is in fact referring to a specific event in a specific thread on the forums. Thus, linking to that thread as an example of why your question is relevant would be helpful.

I'll try to refer to related threads but not every question I asked relates to one.

I will see about boosting inbox space for the member groups. This kind of feedback is exactly what I'm looking for, guys. happy.gif

So have you guys already decided for or against this? I haven't heard any word about it in ages.

I sure wouldn't mind having more inbox space.

As a mod, I feel quite privileged to have the inbox space I do, because it's very limiting to only have up to 100 messages. You have my full support in increasing inbox size. I don't see any real reason we can't do that, they don't take up too much space, do they?

In that case,well maybe you should edit the Forum Guidelines a bit.

As a member, you have the privilege to upload a 150KB file as an attachment to your posts. You have a total of 50 storable messages. (Private Messages) You can also start new topics / polls; vote in polls; and add events to the calendar.


Change the 50 to 130?

It needed to be changed a long time ago. In the admin panel, I saw the regular member PM limit set to 65, not 50.

Done and done.

My PM sent items don't seem to be saving even with "save a copy of this message" checked, are the messages able to be restored? Messages are definitely being sent and received.

Also, possible forum name change? To DK_Brawler please.

If your inbox is full, you will not be able to save any more messages. The IPB site architecture means we do not have the ability to restore something that was never saved in the first place.

I just noticed that you can't add posts to the multiquote queue when they're on different pages of their respective thread. Can this be changed so that the feature remember what you selected on another page of the same thread?

You mean like this Nerubi-senpai...? awesome.gif ??

Just copy-text after pressing the MQ+ button into a notepad/pastebin then repeat the process & paste-text back into the post-box field until all of the desired quotes are conjoined into a single-text alongside your own post. apxrock.gif<333

This is something that can possibly be changed, but would require Perry to alter the site code. The MQ function is not perfect, I agree.

I found out the icons are swapped since over 4 years already. derp.gif

Can admins view previous versions of edited posts similar to how you can view previous versions of Wikipedia articles?

You would have to revert the post database to an older backup to do this, which is in feasible for such an insignificant purpose. This is also why when Xiao mass-deleted his posts there was little the mod team could do about it.

The way the forum database works would need to be changed to add an 'edit history' function.

We do not have the ability to see "pre-edited" versions of posts. Perry might have the ability to do so via brute force on the site code, but the mod team does not have that ability. Admins have access to the Administrator Control Panel, which allows us to see timestamped logs of every action taken on the site, but we cannot see the content that was deleted or edited. It merely logs actions as "(Member Name) deleted/edited a post".

The way IPB is written it'd definitely take some database cache-hacking to see a pre-edited post & some major brute-forcing to see a "Preview Post" before it's officially posted...

But it can be done! Morpheus told me that before I took the bluepill.exe awesome.gif

Granted it's not worth it to try & recover the spilled milk. We're not talking about credit card information or an FBI iPhone incident.

The time taken out of the person trying to recover xiao's lost mumbo-jumbo incoherent posts would be proportionally correlated two-fold cotangent to the actual value of the data that can be invertedly administered in more zenethical applications such as going to school/work or playing video games.

If it weren't a warnable offense to report a post for spam without valid reason, I would. laugh2.gif You've turned saying nothing whatsoever into an absolute art form.

In any event, as mentioned before it's not impossible, it's just infeasible. The forum software isn't configured that way is all, and altering it so that it does work that way would be, I argue, a waste of effort and stability.

Can someone ban this user named jasonwhiteloan? This guy posted something about buying counterfeit money and fake passports (all of which are not Initial D related) on the General Discussion.
