Any update on getting the signatures back?

Sadly I haven't heard anything about that, but I know our tech team is working hard to get all these small hick ups out of our system..

Hi all.

I've got a copy of the old forum running to try and figure out how to add all the broken stuff in people's profile posts. Hopefully that will be sorted soon.

I just enabled signatures. I think anyone with forum admin rights could have done that. I'm sorry it was disabled for some reason. I don't know why. 

On the blank page when not logged in... I had no idea the upgrade removed all guest access to the forums. I reenabled guest read only on all the forums that a guest could see  previously, except the archive of old posts. Let me know if it looks ok. 

Did I miss anything?

Each of you is welcome to email me if I do not respond here. The number of forum alerts and PMs I get these days is a bit overwhelming. Additionally my phone number is posted in the command staff area. Anyone with access to that area is welcome to text/iMessage me any time of day any day of the week 24/7. 

Aaand I just did a forum software update. Again... let me know if something is AFU.

Thanks Eirc! Great to see signatures back! :D

There's another minor thing that require your attention once you finished the more urgent tasks, is to have the Police Officer, SWAT Officer and 501st member tab back. Not a critical issue but I frequently look at a member's profile to determine if he's a Police Officer or SWAT Officer or just a regular member when they buy merchandises from me.

Gordo... are you talking about these two?

There's a members tab but not a 501st members tab I think?

Yes! Those broken rank pictures under the avatar has bugged me for so long. Hopefully the bug gets squashed!

Heh well its not a bug exactly... but a forum skin design problem. I promise it's in the works.

As I mentioned vaguely in the other post... I've got the old version of the forum running to sort out how Bluey inserted those images. Todd has been given admin access to find all that stuff in the old forum's skin. 

Hopefully he can figure it out because it is not an area of my expertise.

Yay for sigs!  Get those two images below the avatars fixed, and that'll go a looong way towards making things at least look back to normal around here. :)

I think I may have this possibly figured out... for the moment everyone is SWAT in their post profile. 

You're approved... and you're approved... and you're approved!

I will fix shortly.

Ok. I think I know what is going on now. I was TOTALLY wrong to what the issue was. All these months I had my head up my shiny white plastic butt. I apologize for taking so long to figure this out.  For now I removed the broken image links. 

There are two things....

First is that for everyone to get their SWAT badge again we'll need to go to everyone's profile in the admin control and reenable it. The same for police officers. That super sucks. I'll need the DOs help with sharing the load on this when we're ready to do it.

Second is that I cannot find the "deployed" icon anywhere. I asked Ricky if he remembers who made them.

In the mean time I have these two icons:

y.png

and

swat.png

I'll get back to this tomorrow. 

With apologies,

-Eric

Maybe someone with photoshop skills can create a nicer looking version? 

If only there was a member of MEPD (henselmonster) who had those skillz!

While I'm not command staff in any way, I'd be willing to help get those badges reactivated.
