Announcement: Wrestling Forum Re-Alignment

Post by Franchise » Sun Jan 28, 2018 2:17 am

Based on our goals we discussed in the Feedback forum here --- viewtopic.php?f=223&t=37213 --- as well as the feedback we obtained from many of the forum regulars, we have re-aligned or re-organized the Wrestling Forum. Well, by we I mean me and I only mention it here because there were like 100+ pages of wrestling threads that I had to go through and sort into either the WWE or the Everything Else subforum. It looks positively glorious to me as this mere simply action de-cluttered the Wrestling Forum and now we won't have as many stickies and Announcements for the current live show threads all together in one forum. So the breakdown is pretty much now like this...

- All live-show threads no matter the promotion will go in the main Wrestling Forum. In order to control this so no one opens random threads like Paige Retiring or whatever in the main parent Wrestling Forum, I have restricted access to the Discussion Mods as far as the ability to open new threads/topics in the main parent Wrestling Forum. I did this so only the people that typically open live threads will have the requisite access to do so.
- As far as the parent forums go, this is going to be the rule of thumb: if the topic is *only* WWE related --- be that NXT, main roster, or otherwise --- the topic should go in the WWE subforum. If it is a mix of WWE and TNA or just TNA or just NJPW or just a random freaking discussion thread, it should go in the Everything Else forum. As a general rule tho, if you're not sure, just put it in the Everything Else subforum to be safe.
- Now, I did as best as I could to follow this rule for all past threads but I could have missed some. So you may see a rogue old thread here or there but it shouldn't be that many.
- As far as Youtube, Twitter, full match threads, etc, I'm gonna leave that up to y'all. Right now we have these threads that are co-mingled between all promotions so they should be in the Everything Else forum. IF people feel separate threads, one for Youtube or full match in WWE and one in EE, then that's fine too. I really don't care which as long as any threads that mix go in EE.

Any questions and/or comments, please let us know here or in the Feedback forum. I will be putting a small FAQ of sorts in the parent Wrestling Forum at some point to specify these guidelines. As always, not trying to make this difficult and we're open to ideas and tweaks. I hope you all enjoy this de-cluttering as much as I do.

Not sure what you mean. The colors haven't changed. It also looks exactly like how http://stablewars.com/phpBB32 was set up in the mock-up I showed you. It just has more threads.

My skin was a calmer blue than your sample. I guess I'll have to play around with the settings when I have more time.

Also, youtube links don't automatically convert to video anymore, but the BB Video plug-in still works.

The skin hasn't changed tho. The sample might have had a different default skin I presume or maybe cuz it had less topics it just looked a little different there. Not sure but haven't done anything with the skin. Depending on which one you use, prosilver is the default, the others may need to be updated with the new release. The backup stuff took so long or else I woulda updated all those as wel.

As for the YouTube thing, I imagine there's some kind of a conflict perhaps or maybe I need to install an update to the extension. Thanks for the heads up; I'll look into it this week.

The current base forum skin (prosilver) is a lighter blue than the prosilver SW.

FYI: I purged the cache from the admin and it seems to have fixed the issue of the embedding not working for pics and things like YouTube. So that should be fine now.

So.........after this re-alignment, how does everyone feel about it? We didn't consult you all before we did it but now that we have, I'm curious what you all thought of it. Personally, I love it but I love organization so.

Honestly wasn't aware of any change so I guess that's good.
