New Fixes & Features
« on: March 31, 2005, 02:19:35 PM »
Hey everyone,

I just wanted to point out a few fixes and features I've added to the forum over the past couple of days.

First, I've removed the Delete User button from the profile page.  There were several people who accidentally deleted themselves, resulting in hundreds of posts made by Guests.  Anyway, no more accidental deleting. ;D

Second, I've added better IP address detection for people connecting through web proxy servers.  This is more of a safety precaution I've taken, in light of the spammer attacks that Hero6 had recently. :-\

Third, I've added a feature I've been wanting to have for a long time!  You can now get the direct link to any post, simply by right-clicking the little message icon (i.e. ) beside the post title, and choosing Copy Shortcut. :) In the past, the only way to get the direct url to a post was to Reply with Quote, Preview the post, right-click on the quote's title, and then choose Copy Shortcut.  Definitely not an easy task to do!  Also, that technique will not work on locked threads because you are not permitted to reply to them. ::)

Enjoy!
