  • Forum Upgrades and Where did my friends and profile comments go?

    As you can tell we've performed a few upgrades to the forums and community sections of BD.

    Two issues I'd like to clear up right away are...

    - Where did my friends go?

    Unfortunately there were incompatibilities when we upgraded and the "friend" status of people in your buddy list was lost. The good news is, they are all still there in your contacts list, simply go through and click on the box to mark them as a friend and once they accept you'll be "friends" again.

    - Where did all my profile comments go?

    Again due to incompatibilities between versions profile comments were lost. We did post an announcement about this and asked that you backup anything important.

    - Can't access user blogs

    The use blogs/journals will be upgraded to be a fully functioning blog, and your old entries will be imported into the new software. This should happen in the next few days, until then you won't be able to access them.

    There are bound to be tons of other bugs, so please use this thread to report them and I'll be working to get everything in order as fast as I can. Some of you might find your avatar isn't working, and that's being taken care of now. You can either wait for us to fix it or change your avatar yourself.

    With that being said, please don't use this thread to complain about things or rant about how much you hate the new software. This thread will be for bug reporting and constructive criticism and suggestions only.

    Some new features to note are...

    SOCIAL GROUPS

    You can create groups for pretty much anything, make them public or invite only, and add images and post messages. We'll be featuring the best and most popular on the front page (horror related of course).

    USER ALBUMS

    We've upgraded to a new image gallery and you can now post in multiple galleries to keep your images organized. Your old images ARE still on our servers and will be moved into the new system shortly.

    UPDATED USER PROFILES

    The user profiles have been reorganized and have a few new little features. I suggest you explore and play around to see what's available to you.

    One thing to note is the facebook-esque status update under your username. Click the edit button, enter your status, then hit the edit button again. One more place for you to break the rules and earn yourself an infraction.

    If you have any questions, suggestions, or bugs, feel free to post them here. I'll be staying up for a bit to make sure there aren't any major problems, but I'm tired and have TV to watch...

    Thanks!

    word up, i like it
    Something about her just makes me want to jam my cock in her throat until she pukes on my balls....she looks like she is into that kinda shit.
    I just wanted to point out the irony of you calling them mean while proudly sporting an image of a naked impaled girl on your forearm.

          how come when you click the BD logo, it takes you to the news page instead of refreshing the forum page?

              we wanted that to be consistent throughout the site, so if you want to refresh the forums page or go back to the forums front page from where you are click the INFECTED logo or the forums link in the nav bar.

                  It's not THAT bad, and I'm looking forward to the 'wide' skin.
                  The second issue of my not-for-profit horror zine/newsletter, 'Why Do I Like Stupid Horror Movies?' is available now at my blog, if you find a spare $2 in your Paypal account - go buy it please. I'd appreciate it . This issue comes with a mix-tape and a 'screenplay snippets' one-sheet. Also, I love trades (for anything, but especially zines).

                    It's good. It's amazing to see how far the board has come since I started here, and I wasn't even on here in the beginning. The only issue I'm having is that my avatar sometimes shows up and sometimes doesn't, but I figure it's a bug that will be worked out in time.

                      thanks jeremy, i think once the bugs are worked out this will be the coolest version yet.

                      your avatar should be fixed, i just restored a bunch of the broken ones from a backup.

                        Yeah it's working great now. I may never say it outright, but I'm glad to be apart of the board and glad you guys came up with the site. Thank you.

                          ^^

                          JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE READ, YOU NEED TO REDO YOUR FRIEND REQUESTS! JUST GO INTO THE CONTACTS AND FRIENDS SECTION OF YOUR USERCP, CHECK THE "FRIEND" BOX FOR EACH USER AND THEN THE SUBMIT BUTTON AT THE BOTTOM.

                            I think it goes without saying that I fear change...

                            Few things I've noticed:

                            -The message box when posting a reply to a thread is wider than the main column.

                            -Bit of inconsistency in the Profile Comments tab. The actual page refers to them as "Visitor Messages" and the button says "Post Message". Can you change those to all "Visitor Messages" or "Profile Comments"?
