Could you please provide a little more information on how exactly the mod works? Is that image what it'll look like once the data is inserted? So, I just add something like: Real Madrid 4 - Bayern Munich 0 between the bbcode and that's it?
I know this is a little old, but guest votes are still not possible in ipb, are they?
I'd be interested in a mod that allowed this (and recorded the guest's ip so that he couldn' vote again) on the same poll.
Absolutely outstanding mod. Can be used as a glossary to help your users with unusual words, as non intrusive publicity, etc.
Really easy to set up, you can use images with text, supports foreign characters, you can use either one word or a multiple words, etc. Check it out!
I'm not sure if the Market place search system is any good, but I've always had trouble finding things.
Here are examples which you can try yourself:
- Try to find the FAQ system by HQ. If you type "FAQ", nothing will be found. If you type "questions", nothing will be found. If you type the name of the app, [HSC] FAQ System nothing will be found!. If you try "system", 17 pages, but I couldn't be bothered...
- I remember Adriano made a lottery mod. I typed "lottery" and found just one app, the points system, which isn't his. I went to Adriano's profile, but only some of his recent apps can be found. :-? why can we get a list of all the apps by a coder ?
IT's not the first time I've had trouble finding apps that I know exist...
I just noticed the other day that customers are no longer allowed to write blogs on this site.
I understand that staff blogs are probably more important and a way for you guys to stay in touch with the community and keep us up to date and everything, but I think it would be nice to give us some personal space where we could write our blogs, even if it's in a different category or something, not to mention that the blog app would get a bit more exposure...
"My certainty about the legitimacy of the above numbers comes from the fact that my community is 100% Greek spoken, so I doubt any member coming from those countries wanted to become an active member of it for any reason other than for spamming."
Really?? er... what about Greek Speaking People living in those countries?
Adding an image for each team can be tedious, but it looks so much better! I wouldn't want a team I support to be represented by a generic image.
Don't forget that this app can be used for international sporting competitions. Can you imagine the US being represented by a generic image? most team logos are available on the internet, in fact there are website where you can download the logos for a whole league, so I don't think it's such a big deal, and your users will love it!
I think superficiality has gained ground, no question about it. But the future of forums remains bright. In fact, I think they will experience a "renaissance". Every community and even every educational institution should have one, what better way to teach kids about democracy and to express their opinions? I'd make participation mandatory! It is possible to keep, say, a school community perfectly under control using a forum. Now, can you do that in the facebook jungle?
People should also participate more often in political decisions. A forum is the ideal place for that. Can you imagine doing something like that in facebook? :D
I can't stand facebook. I've tried playing some games there, and it's such an incredible pest! I mean, they tell you you're gonna play a wonderful game, and after you give them all kinds of permissions (Why TF do I have to give them any permissions??) the game takes for ever to load. I mean it!! and then they tease me with this repetitive "invite your friends to take part". And then they want my money!! And then, everytime I play, they tell everyone about it using my name!! and there's publicity everywhere. It's horrible!! ###### them!
Install an arcade on your forum, nice, clean, quiet, fast.
I've tried creating different profiles on facebook. But people I don't want to talk to always find me. It's got to do with the way facebook works and uses algorithms which have to do with your name, your email, the school you went to... just a small piece of data is enough. I want to have an account which has nothing to do with my professional profile, and this is basically impossible unless you lie. Which of course I do, but it's a pest. I hate it.
A lot of forum admins use twitter, facebook, g+... but they're still admins.
The content which you come accross in some forums is so far superior to 140 letters thougths... (ok, not always, lol, but you know what I mean). Hey, I like to read stuff that people have invested a little time on, and if I can integrate all the twitter crap in my forum if I want to, all the better.
I hate the limitations to express myself on sites like facebook, twitter, and many others. It's just a different universe... not even a parallel one!! :D
And also... do not forget the growing mass of people who really hate facebook´s shallowness, commerciality and growing privacy invasion . It's a force not to be understimated... it's a force to be reckoned with.
Evil must be destroyed!
I do like meetup.com though. Pretty useful and really socially oriented. (and hey, I also like twitter).
I do agree that Invision (and others) cannot sleep on their laurels though...
