  1. I was getting bombed by lots of ridiculous sounding new members a couple of months ago. It stopped dead as soon as I removed the existing Question and Answer Challenge entries and put some new ones in. Make them something specific to your site theme - something that your potential members are likely to know.
  2. Thanks to Rimi for the mod, but in addition to CallieJo's ideas - Guests/Everyone - Members Only - Just Friends.
  3. Deja Vu! The same advocates and the same opponent! For what it's worth I still think that profile permissions would be a good idea. I don't see how the above forums topics scenareo might apply. Shall we meet up again in 14 months? :)
  4. This is how I did it - Admin/Look & Feel -> Bad Word Filter -> Add New Filter. Before http://youtu.be/ After http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=
  5. A good way to fix this is to put the first part of the more recent style share link into the swear filter - to be replaced by the old one. It works well. :)
  6. oops - wrong forum. :)
  7. I think that it is automatically sent to those in the groups that you've selected (in Member groups to receive message - if email is selected for handling messages).
  8. It worked on my test board fine yesterday, but today I find that the Announcement Text is replaced by 'Array' and the spam question text has disappeared - replaced by '1', with another 'Array' beneath and the recaptcha has disappeared. No worries because it's only the test board.
  9. Thanks. I was waiting for this because although the old version continued to work with 3.2 I couldn't get near the settings. One suggestion - a default department (selected),
  10. How easy would it be to do this at the most simple level though? Member has profile set to public or members only. A tinyint in an ocean of blobs. :)
  11. At the simplest level, it would be a nice feature if community members could have the ability (if admins allowed) to have their profiles viewable by guests or not. It started with a few members complaining that the world could see their profile pictures or other stuff that they'd put on, then a few more chipped in to say that they'd customize theirs a bit more if only members had access. As a result of that we ended up turning off profile view for guests - where other members didn't mind, or actually wanted their profiles visible to everyone. I suppose that making it a bit more complex like 'only allow friends' or choosing which bits to show would be a bigger ask, but stuff like that might be a bit more 'community orientated'.
  12. As with permissions for skins, for forums and for various installed apps, I can see a reason why permissions are desirable. Indeed, Mat didn't need to code in a permissions feature, but he must have wanted to and nobody forced him to. :)
  13. ^ 3) I think it uses the members SEO name. I can't test/use the sidebar hook because I've disabled the normal sidebar with a custom blocks mod. Is there a PHP equivalent that I can paste in to make such a block?
  14. Thanks. Best to be on the safe side. :) Hey - I get copyright removal for freeeeeee! :lol:
  15. Yes, I figured that, thanks. I was just wondering about the 'legality' using the mod as it is.
