Functionality and System Maintenance Announcements

Postby Kevin » Tue Jan 20, 2009 7:49 pm

As new functionality for the site comes online, I will post detailed information here.  Here's the first round:

1) There is a new tag in the posting interface: the youtube tag.  This will allow you to easily embed youtube video in your post.  Click on it then insert the video ID between the tags.  For example, if the url to the page with the video is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipZDG6__Zfc# then the text between your tags should be: ipZDG6__Zfc

Your result should look like this:
[youtube:2un1c4kq]ipZDG6__Zfc[/youtube:2un1c4kq]

Feel free to watch the whole video.  You know you love Right Said Fred.  ;)

If you have any questions or problems, never hesitate to PM myself or Nick.

More functionality to come...

Thanks,
Marco

We will be cruel to Pitt.  And through our cruelty they will know who we are.  And they will find the evidence of our cruelty in the disemboweled, dismembered and disfigured bodies of their brothers we leave behind us.  And Pitt won't be able to help themselves but imagine the cruelty their brothers endured at our hands and our boot heels and the edge of our knives.  And Pitt will be sickened by us.  And Pitt will talk about us.  And Pitt will fear us.

I'd suggest hosting an image if it's heavy on kb's. Animated gifs for example

Excellent point. If you link to a hosted image it cuts down on the expenses for our hosting. If at all possible that is the way to go.

A note about Private Messages (PM)s:

If you write a PM and hit send you will notice it might sit in your outbox and there is no way to get it to leave. This is by design. Your message will sit in your outbox until the person you sent it to logs in the next time. This is a sort of "delivery confirmation" method for your PMs. If your recipient has logged in and the PM is still in the outbox please let me know and I'll take a look at it.

Also, the email notification of a new PM is turned on by default. To disable this, go to the User Control Panel, click on the Board Settings tab and set "Notify me on new Private Message" to off.

As always, thanks for being part of the Mountaineer Nation!

Marco.

Big changes are in store this weekend. Here's the list of things that will hopefully be added by Monday morning:

1) A completely new look and feel. We are going to go with a bold blue and gold color scheme with some incredible new graphics courtesy of our Graphic Designer, pyro.

2) Spel Chek

3) Countdown timer to kickoff of the 2009 West Virginia University Mountaineers Football Season.

4) We are going to add a Mountaineer Trading Post. This will be were you can post if you are looking to buy tickets or trying to sell tickets. There will also be an area for buying, selling and trading WVU related mechandise. We might expand this later if there is demand, but this will start out being ONLY for WVU tickets and merchandise. Don't try to sell that autographed picture of Wanny and if you're looking to buy an autographed picture of Wanny, well, that's just sick. :D

5) We are going to add an article section.

I want to thank everyone who has made suggestions for changes and improvements, either via PM or in the forums. Please keep them coming. This is your nation.

Thanks,
Marco

I've noticed the same thing tuss and I don't like it at all. Expect a fix for it soon, possibly even tonight.

Ohhhh....how about when you come onto the site you hear the marching band play and the crowd shout "W-V-U"!!! That would be sooooo cool. I guess it would be cool for a while but then get kinda annoying after the 100th time...

[SteelEER] 11:38 pm: haha...i need a good slap in the ass mom. you up for that?
[Mangtangeer] 11:46 pm: Liste Mom, if I could almost hit myself in the head with my own dick, do you think I'd be sitting in a chat room?
[EERCrazy] 8:05 pm: Me too ram...I like em thick and long....omg did I just say that.
[Mangtangeer] 8:20 pm: you'd be surprised how pretty luke is if you slap a dress and some rouge on him...
