[MyBB] Forum update changelog


Post by infurnus » Tue Jan 14, 2014 2:59 am

EDIT: This is deprecated since we moved to phpbb

I'll try to update this post the best I can when/if we issue minor forum updates (ie not MyBB or PHP version updates, etc.)

(The following will contain update info, latest updates at the top; Month/Day/Year)

Code: Select all

* 12/7/2014
- Thursday Night Last Man Standing event sub-forum added.

* 11/2/2014
- Fixed issue for some users seeing "no permission" warnings.

* 10/4/2014
- Fixed some missed typos and errors in the forum guidelines, updated impersonation section based on user feedback

* 10/3/2014
- Updated formatting in Forum Guidelines (now v4.0), & added blurbs to Ban Evasion and Warnings sections based on moderator suggestions.
- Fixed issues with admin rights and control panel, should fix rare 'no permission' messages.
- Added some stuff from staff notes to this public changelog

* 9/26/2014
- Fixed some formatting with the Forum Guidelines (now v3.5).

* 8/23/2014
- Fixed up clan subforum rights for legion

* 8/16/2014
- Anti-spam stuff should be better (added disposable email domains to disallowed emails list)
- Fixed a few rare theme glitches, MCP should also be cleaner and easier to read now

* 7/25/2014
- Complete rewrite of main rules (wording/verbosity only) & extended the guidelines a bit. Registration agreement now only contains main rules and has a link to the guidelines and further clarification.

* 6/1/2014
- Dealt with some mysterious elusive spambots/proxies. Hopefully the spambot filter won't catch innocent users!

* 4/6/2014
- Updated forum guidelines & registration agreement to have a specific clause about impersonation of other user's names via unicode/letters/numbers.

* 4/1/2014
- Re-added cheesy Igor post icon for April Fools due to user requests.

* 3/13/2014
- Updated group permissions to fix threads/subforums not being visible to users.

* 3/1/2014
- Cleaned up some minor issues, backed up forum & attempted to prepare for updated and/or future plugins.

* 2/14/2014
- Fixed up all the community/event forum groups (both the generic one & the specific FNF, SNS, etc. ones).
- Removed old Igor post icon from April Fools.

* 2/4/2014
- Cleaned up forum groups & forum group leaders
- Tried to fix post moderation (was somehow set to 2 years instead of the normal length which is just a few months)
- Adjusted MyBB's automated moderation/suspension settings further, no longer bans automatically; bans must now be given via Banning system.

* 1/24/2014
- Made MyBB's automatic suspending/banning less quick on the draw & adjusted anti-spam filter's sensitivity to have less false positives.
- Updated and fixed old/incorrect settings & group permissions.

* 1/13/2014
- Added StopForumSpam plugin; less spambot registrations.
- Added some newer forum graphics, removed some old/unused graphics.
