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,

Hi Eric, these are the tabs I am talking about. Sorry if I got you confused with the clickable tabs to navigate to the SWAT and Police Officer pages.

Btw there's is no "deployed" icon. All deployed Police Officer uses the Police Officer icon.

The only one missing now is the "501st Member" icon

why are my ears ringing all of a sudden.....

 

I'm on it.

John, just a humble suggestion, Can you make the SWAT icon to be the same length and height like the rest of icons. As you can see the current one we used to have is too short in length and too tall in height.

A consistent length and height for all the icons will look great. :D

Oooooh! I get it now. I'm also sorry for the confusion. I am with you now. 

The 501st member icons seem to be working. That is tied to the forum group you're in (members, admin, sandtrooper, 501st menber) whereas the swat and PO icons are just extra profile information.

I'll be working on this today.

Holleeee that sucked.

I think its sorted now. Please everyone double check to ensure everyone who is SWAT and PO have the proper badges.

I had to go in and run a few SQL queries in the database to make this happen. Things with custom profile fields changed radically between versions of the forum. It all changed for the better but the old ways super broke when I upgraded. (this is going to suck ass when I upgrade FISD).

I'm happy to update the image one new ones are created.

I can also do any Photoshop work that needs done if your 'go2guy' is busy or gets overwhelmed. I currently do member trading cards for Dune Sea Garrison.

Eric,

Thanks for the link to this conversation; I wasn't aware of it and was merely relying on our private emails. I'll send you another regarding our last exchange, just wanted to say thanks for including me on this string brother.

Cool cool dude, I'll let you know, I should be able to get them done today or tomorrow. I'll post some concepts for everyone to look at. If I can't get to them for some reason I'll let you know thanks!

Hi all.

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?

-Eric

HAH! So I wasn't imagining it. Thank you for fixing that.:duim:
Regarding the "view more content" issue.  I wont mark the forum as read. I'll give it a few days to let the forum fill with posts. Then I'll click the "view more content" and see what I get.
I'll let you know if that is working or not.

Who is eligible for this "501st Member" icon?

Here are a few preliminary ideas I had for replacing the rank images. I wanted to keep it somewhat simple since It will be so small in the end. Images and logos don't tend to work well at this size. I am working on some more design directions, let me know If there is another one I should add.

Looks great John! I am not sure about military ranks but is the one for Command Staff /Administrator higher rank than the one for SWAT?

Maybe can have commissioned officers ranks like Captain and Major. Just an idea. The current one for Command looks like a Major rank B)

Sounds great!

@DarthAloha: I've tried to move the posts about the rank badges to a separate thread but it only allows me to select a section not individual threads. Any ideas how to make this work?

One other point about the rank badges: Would it be possible to move the number of posts to the bottom?

Also when I tried to delete the new thread I got this error message:

Thanks for your help!

Strider,

I am not sure how to move number of posts to the bottom, or if I can. I'll look into it. It's likely in the theme code itself which I'm wary to change. 

Can you tell me more about what you're trying to move? I don't follow at all. You want to move some posts from somewhere to elsewhere but you can't? Please be specific about what threads you mean and which posts you're trying to move... more importantly what you're clicking on when that causes an error.

-Eric

Yes, you are right, I should have been more specific :)

This is re trying to move some posts:

I first started another thread in the MEDP Feedback section under N

I checked a number of boxes of individual posts on this thread here

Then I went to the bottom of the page and clicked "Moderation Actions" and "Move"

There it stopped because it only allowed me to select sections but no threads within that section.

 

The other issue seems to be fixed now. I just deleted my original thread with the title "N

If everyone is cool with these I can send you the live files and PNGs. Here are the PNGs I uploaded elsewhere. Also, I added a weathered look to them, since you know, things tend to get dirty around here. Also I can re-size them for you so they match the existing badge sizes if needed.

If the new DL approves it in a few hours please do make them roughly the same size as the existing ones...  or even slightly bigger. Toss them somewhere for me to download and I'll replace the images on the server :)

Wow John - those new icons are looking great!  A much as I like the old ones, the new ones you do look very fresh/modern.
