Feature requests and bugs
« on: June 16, 2012, 11:18:12 PM »
As there will be some administrative time available in the coming weeks we wish to make some good use of it!

We wish to know what features 2S is lacking and what is glitchy or full of bugs at the moment.

Things that are known to be missing:
Army Lists

Things that are know to have bugs:
items pending

Thank you for your suggestions,
2S Admin Team

Some other things:

Newsletter Committee is gone, or just not producing.

Also, the website you made for the Twitter Account is gone/not working.

Ah was just bitching about this in another thread  :P
the secondsphere banner up top is still gone, several emoticons are missing the broken links should be either fixed or removed, the newsletter needs to start going out again, the chat link needs to be restored up top as well, and finally general janitorial work on clearing out the broken posts and such. Is there anything we can do to help you get stuff back running again I at least would like to offer my assistance.

I'll be under your bed!! So watch out! I poke!

Everytime I want to post, send a pm, or reply I need to sign out and sign back in because I keep getting an error saying session timed out, try again.

The actual error is:

The following error or errors occurred while posting this message:
Your session timed out while posting. Please try to re-submit your message.

Because yeah, I got it trying to post this reply...
Phew...

The spell check is broken too.

Also, something utterly unimportant that annoys me (not a bug, just a pet peeve), when you go on "who's online" it shows everyone as standard, and then you can change it to show members only or guests only. Can you change that to have members only as standard? No one cares what guests are doing. It'll save me around 6 seconds per day!

I get that, I find hitting preview then clicking post again works.

I think that's cause the banner links at the bottom of the page are broken.

SPELL CHECKER GODS DAMMIT!!!!!

Do you see the banner(s) at all anymore? I've not seen them at all...


TODO:
Spell Check (this has elluded me for 6 months. >:()
LO Banner (I'll need to contact FT about this one...)
Spoiler Tags
Chat Link/instructions
Smileys
Newsletter

Is there anything we can do to help you get stuff back running again I at least would like to offer my assistance.
There are a few ways in which it is possible for almost anyone to help with:
1) You can report any posts that are in the wrong place
2) Report any problems with the site
3) Get together and produce content for the newsletter

Some who are more technically minded may be able to:
1) Work on code solutions to some of our problems (we use PHP primarily, but if you happen to have a reasonable Javascript/HTML/CSS knowledge it's also possible you could work with us :)) If any of you are interested just send a PM my way.
2) It is possible for you to participate in the cleanup of the site (i.e. moving topics yourself).

BBCode in custom titles!

Also I'm still in favour of a restore to back-up from a few months ago before all the threads from the last year got spread across the forum...this would be really beneficial to everyone...

Which theme(s) still have this feature lacking?

It would be possible (in theory) to revert back around 5 months if FT still have the backup. More recent topics could be restored across.

However, it would likely have problems in itself in that it would involve a day or two of downtime (for some reason restoring SQL files brings the server to a crawl) and might not even work. :-\


As an idea, maybe it would be possible to restore an old copy of the messages and topics table. Then, once that was up, I could mirror all of the recent posts/topics over to that table and delete our old table. Would take a week or few of uploading the old database I would think but the downtime would be minimal. It sounds good in theory but I've no idea if it would actually work. :P

I guess up to you on this one. I think downtime would be a small price to pay to get everything working again, but at the same time we don't want to break things even more!

The old 2S theme had the banner links still on the bottom of the page and it seemed to be what was causing the timeout error. BBC code isn't working on the SMF curve theme either for custom titles.

I was actually referring to the beautiful 2S banner that used to be up top and is now just the SMF banner but I guess we need the bottom banners working too

The Marketing Committee board seems to be missing as well.
