CHANGES TO THE BBS CHAT

It appears there have been some changes to the BBS Chat and now all levels of membership can post here. Justin, can you tell us what other changes have been made or what will be made? My membership renewal comes up on 10/4 and I would like to know the breakdown of membership levels to help me decide which level to choose.

Thanks.
Lodi

Hello Lodi,

The breakdown is essentially unchanged - you can see it on the upgrade page.

The only change is, as you noted, the recent modifications to the chat forums.

Here are the changes:

- All players can post to any forum AFTER they reach level 2
- Gold member posts have a gold background
- Platinum member posts have a steel-blue background and bold font
- Editor posts have an emerald green background
- Non-paying member posts have a white background and generic gray icon/avatar
- My posts have the traditional "Sploofus red" background
- The date on each post has been reformatted to show weekday and year

All I did was copy and paste SOME lines of code out of Sploofus 2.0, because I wanted to implement these changes prior to its release. Note I said SOME. The forums in 2.0 are waaaaay cooler. More on the status of 2.0's release in the thread called "Would like to see the picture puzzle return".

Thanks Lodi,
Justin

Please be sure to check out the other forums as well.

The Salty Dog is great for general chat, but you'll find a lot of fun - including some great trivia-related challenges - in the other forums.

My favorite is "Ask the Audience". We've got a ton of brain-horsepower there... always amazing. Hotwire is the place for the latest announcements, Trivial Tangents is the place for intellectual rambling, and the Newbie's Corner is a great place to go if you are unsure about something and need a quick answer (without filing a support ticket).

If you are looking for a quiz that doesn't already exist on Sploofus, just go to the "Quiz Requests" forum. Quizzes are made to order there.

And last, but not least, is "The Hit List" forum. Shameless self-promotion and gossiping about quiz authors is more fun than you might think. Try it!

Just remember to always add a dash of humor, never take yourself too seriously, and you'll be learning new things from new friends from around the world in no time.

Have fun,
Justin

Just by looking around, I think I answered my own question. It's good to see all the new people introducing themselves and posting on the chat forum. They look a bit ghostly, though.

Just bumping this info up. With the new posting system, this kind of stuff is getting buried.

DITTO....I want to see Vickie's "Have a great day" post when I come in after a hard day at work.

At this rate...I'll have to go back 1,000 posts just to see it.

Just my 2 cents...me.

I'm glad everyone is able to use the BBS now! Would it be possible to have threads with unread messages show up in bold? I keep clicking the same messages and then realize I've already seen them.
