News / Official Christmas Miracle Anarchy Weekend
« on: December 23, 2015, 09:46:47 PM »
Merry Christmas, Blaze! We're celebrating God not being real with another Anarchy Weekend, like you probably expected, because I can't come up with anything original and I'm too cheap to buy any of you gifts.

Anarchy starts at midnight Christmas Eve and ends at midnight on Monday (28th) (CST).

If you're new and haven't experienced Anarchy, drop in to your nameplate page and request the Beyond the Sea nameplate to gain access to the fun.

Rules are as follows:
Quote
1. No illegal stuff.
2. No semi-illegal stuff (loli porn)
3. No releasing personal info about other users
   — This includes anything not publicly available nor posted on Sep7agon
4. Stretching the forum body by creating an obnoxiously-long thread title
5. Jet fuel can't melt steel beams.

Anything else is fair game. Breaking the above rules will get you kicked out of Anarchy. If you do something illegal, I'll also report you to the authorities, so don't be stupid.

News / Official Maintenance Tuesday
« on: December 07, 2015, 09:14:16 PM »
Expect downtime tomorrow due to server maintenance. The email from the host is below.

Quote
An upgrade to the system infrastructure is scheduled to take place in two phases on Tuesday, December 8 at 9:30pm MST. This upgrade will allow us to increase reliability and uptime for the services we provide.

Phase one includes 15-20 minutes of downtime during which your website may be temporarily unavailable to your viewers. Your website will be back online, viewable, and all interactive features will be fully functional at the beginning of phase two.

During phase two, certain portions of the Bluehost website including the login function, cPanel tools, and webmail will be unavailable. Email generated will not be lost, though you will experience some slowness while sending and receiving mail during the maintenance period.

Thanks in advance for your patience during this upgrade. We're working hard to improve the services that power your website and we understand any maintenance can be an inconvenience.

Gaming / Halo 5 Dubz Tourney?
« on: November 21, 2015, 10:03:22 PM »
Would anyone be interested in participating in a Halo 5 doubles (or hell, even 4-player teams) tournament? Seems like it's been a while since we had a community Halo thing that didn't fall apart, so I was just curious.

News / Official Halloween Anarchy
« on: October 29, 2015, 10:11:35 PM »
Happy Halloween! We're celebrating with another Anarchy Weekend, of course. Also, it's my birthday this Sunday, so that's kind of another reason. Yes, this Anarchy is starting EARLY and most likely ending late, since I can't be staying up until midnight anymore.

For reference: Anarchy usually starts at midnight on Friday and ends at midnight on Monday (CST).

If you're new and haven't experienced Anarchy, drop in to your nameplate page and request the Beyond the Sea nameplate to gain access to the fun.

Rules are as follows:
Quote
1. Illegal stuff.
2. Semi-illegal stuff (loli porn)
3. Releasing personal info about other users
   — This includes anything not publicly available nor posted on Sep7agon
4. Stretching the forum body by creating an obnoxiously-long thread title
5. Jet fuel can't melt steel beams.

News / Official Staff Changes
« on: October 02, 2015, 11:29:56 PM »
Just a quick announcement about some staff shuffling.

As Isara is completely MIA and Brute only stops by infrequently, both of them are no longer on staff in any capacity.

To make up for the loss and get some extra hands for moderation of the forum, I've re-Ninja'd Icy and he will be serving on the mod squad for the foreseeable future.

That's all. kthxbai :)

EDIT: Isara is back in and Kupo was demoted upon his request.

News / Official Anarchy Weekend!
« on: September 10, 2015, 03:24:50 PM »
Ayyy. Yeah, we're back for another round of Anarchy Weekend to kick off the fall and back-to-school season. We had planned this for last weekend, but a majority of the mods couldn't be here, so we're doing it on 9/11 instead. I'm sure it'll be great. :)

For reference: Anarchy starts at midnight tonight and ends at midnight on Monday (CST).

If you're new and haven't experienced Anarchy, drop in to your nameplate page and request the Beyond the Sea nameplate to gain access to the fun.

Rules are as follows:
Quote
1. Illegal stuff.
2. Semi-illegal stuff (loli porn)

4. Stretching the forum body by creating an obnoxiously-long thread title
5. Jet fuel can't melt steel beams.

Anything else is fair game. Breaking the above rules will get you kicked out of Anarchy. If you do something illegal, I'll also report you to the authorities, so don't be stupid.



Also: I've added an "Anarchy Nameplate" field to your profiles. You can now set a nameplate specifically for Anarchy, and yeah, NSFW is allowed. :)

News / Official Community Feedback
« on: September 03, 2015, 12:48:43 AM »
Ahead of the upcoming moderation poll, the Sep7agon staff would like to offer the community an open-forum to discuss their problems with anything site related - moderation style, the staff team, layout, forums, design, etc. This, along with the poll, will help to give us an idea as to what direction the site will go.

Although this is an open-forum and all critique and complaints are allowed, there are a couple rules...

  • No attacking others, period. This is meant to be a constructive thread, not a venue to berate others who have different beliefs for the site.
  • Staff members, aside from LC, Psy, and myself are asked to refrain from commenting/replying for clarity's sake.
  • Try to condense everything into one post - if you can, edit in future points to that existing post so that we may have some form of organization

This thread will remain open for roughly a week. Thank you for your feedback.

News / Official Prefixes added
« on: August 29, 2015, 10:22:14 PM »
Prefixes for official, spoiler, and NSFW topics have been added as a function on the forums for all members (except for the official one). To use them, when creating a topic, select the appropriate prefix from the drop down that is above the Subject line.

Note: while the rules haven't been updated, members seen abusing these prefixes and attaching them to topics that they do not apply to will be warned and/or banned. Use them as they were designed, please.

The Flood / Fatcow: shady host or just incompetent?
« on: August 22, 2015, 10:15:00 PM »
If you guys don't already know, over a year ago a little while after we got started, Fatcow had an "alleged" DDoS attack directed at us and asked that we move somewhere else, since they couldn't support us. There's a post in News about that if you dig for it. So I immediately got a new host and dumped Fatcow, moving all my hosted sites for clients and personal projects over with Sep7agon and ending renewal options with Fatcow (basically cutting funding and letting the hosting package slowly run out).

Yeah, so that hosting package ran out some time in January or February, but apparently they are not that bright, because this email came in from them yesterday:

TItle: Load/Malware

Security Specialist

I did check one of my old domains that I never transferred over, and it's displaying that "disabled" page Sep7agon got when it went down the first time.

Basically this host is so dumb that they've been hosting a bunch of unused and unresolved websites for half a year without a single form of payment on my end. I think we made a wise choice in GTFO of there, mates.

It was legit my fault. I tried to click a checkbox to give you guys the ability to edit trust again, and accidentally checked the "Give full mod privileges to all regular members."

Yeah... Whoops.

Seriously, it's right below the "all perms" button

News / Anniversary Anarchy!
« on: July 26, 2015, 08:52:11 PM »
It's Sep7agon's birthday tomorrow, and so as a gift to all members, we're having 24 hours of Anarchy. Since this is the ultra-cool 1-year anniversary of Sep7agon opening, I'll be dropping some stuff randomly inside that board. Nothing huge; just some Amazon dollars and whatever else I can get my hands on that I feel comfortable with giving to you guys.

For reference: Anarchy starts at midnight on Monday and ends at midnight on Tuesday (CST).

If you're new and haven't experienced Anarchy, drop in to your nameplate page and request the Beyond the Sea nameplate to gain access to the fun.

Rules are as follows:
Quote
1. Illegal stuff.
2. Semi-illegal stuff (loli porn)
3. Releasing personal info about other users
   — This includes anything not publicly available nor posted on Sep7agon
4. Stretching the forum body by creating an obnoxiously-long thread title

Anything else is fair game. Breaking the above rules will get you kicked out of Anarchy. If you do something illegal, I'll also report you to the authorities, so don't be stupid.

Firstly, which of the two designs do you prefer? Secondly, what bugs you about the design or what do you think needs to be changed/improved? I'm iffy on the "I" at the very top, as the cursive makes it a tad hard to interpret.

News / Quck update: Saved Threads
« on: July 09, 2015, 02:14:29 AM »
I did a quick poke and realized that the saved threads mod that I had assumed was completely broken was just missing a single bit of code that was preventing the button from showing up. I've gone ahead and put the button in, so you should now see a "save thread" button at the top of each thread, and a new "saved threads" menu item in your avatar dropdown menu up there in the navigation bar.

Enjoy. :)

News / Anarchy Weekend
« on: June 25, 2015, 08:12:40 PM »
It's Blaze's birthday this weekend, and he's asked for another round of Anarchy as a gift to all members. So, I'll be granting his wish and you guys will have the run of the place from tonight (midnight) until the very beginning of Monday, as was the usual allotted time (and yes, that's central time).

If you're new and haven't experienced Anarchy, drop in to your nameplate page and request the Beyond the Sea nameplate to gain access to the fun.

Rules are as follows:

1. Illegal stuff.
2. Semi-illegal stuff (loli porn)

News / Confirm your email address
« on: June 18, 2015, 09:11:26 PM »
We're still a while out from another major site update, but I wanted to get this message out there, since it is highly likely that the update will force everyone to reset their passwords via email.

So please, check your email that is attached to your account and make sure it's valid and current. If you forget to do this and the update is applied and you get locked out, I will be able to recover your account, but it will be a lot slower than just making sure your information is correct.

Thanks, and I'll let you know more about the update later on, once we have something to share.

The Flood / GG Tapatalk
« on: June 03, 2015, 04:14:05 PM »
Guys, I finally figured out the strange phenomenon where "random" quotes don't show up in your alerts box. It's Tapatalk. If you make a reply and quote while using Tapatalk, it will add a <br /> to the beginning of the post body and skip the alert/notification trigger for the normal site.

Just thought you should know...

News / Tapatalk Update
« on: May 29, 2015, 12:33:19 PM »
The tapatalk plugin will be removed from the forum in the next month or so. This is happening after I checked my forum owner dashboard on Tapatalk and realized they pocket all ad revenue under $5 in a given month. That means that those annoying ads you've been seeing haven't been helping the site at all, and I obviously don't agree with their policies.

So, I'm really sorry to those of you who only surf the forum on your phone and don't like the mobile site, but you might have to suck it up for a month or so after I turn the app off.

The Flood / Question about Groups
« on: May 21, 2015, 10:36:27 PM »
I know I'm lagging behind on the time table I had told everyone about, but things are moving ahead behind the scenes and in the next few months I expect groups to be a fully functioning thing here on Sep7agon. I also know that a bunch of you think groups will thin the population a whole hell of a lot, so I'd like to explain my plan to you first.

After the site upgrade and groups are functioning, I'll invite a couple popular groups from Bnet or other communities to come and try them out and give feedback. While this is happening, nobody will be able to create groups and only those invited will be able to join the test groups that will be set up. As was the case with Anarchy in the past, activity breeds activity, regardless of if it's separated from the main boards, and so it's my hope that we'll attract members from those test groups into our general population, merely by hosting their community.

After that is all done and I can see a clear increase in the population (and once the groups don't fall apart) I'll open group creation up to the most active members and allow anyone to join a group. When that doesn't kill the forum (which I'm hopeful it won't, although it may turn out to be bad for overall activity) I'll allow any and all users to create groups.

So since these plans are starting to come together, I wanted to get the community's pulse on this: which group(s) on Bnet do you think would do well here or would want to come and try it out here? Any groups outside Bnet that you think might be interested?

The Flood / iPhone 5 Build Color?
« on: May 14, 2015, 07:40:45 PM »
So yeah, I just got a really good deal on an unlocked iPhone 5, so I'm going to fix it up and change out all the external parts (and a few internal ones), so it can be whatever color I desire. I'm leaning toward gold, but I've done 3 of those in a row so maybe it's time for something new.

So, if you were to pick an iPhone, what color would you want it to be?

The Flood / Remove Quote Nesting?
« on: April 17, 2015, 02:45:31 PM »
What it is:

Quote
Hey
Quote
Lol

So, I've heard some complaints regarding the notification system and quotes (and also quotes from specific users, but that's a separate issue that I still need to look into). Basically: if you get roped into a quote chain, you will get an alert for each quote afterward, even if your quote doesn't show up in the post.

This is caused by a css styling that only allows 3 levels of quotes, but actually logs all of them in the system. SMF has an on and off switch with quote nesting and does not easily allow 1 or 2 or 3 levels, so my question to you is: should quote nesting be disabled completely, in favor of direct quoting, where you will only get notifications when someone directly quotes you?

You may post your congratulatory statements here if you really, really have to. ::)

I've been looking at ways to improve the forum after some criticisms of the "NEW" image that appears for new topics, and I ran across this eyesore.

My question to you is: how often do you use the little page selection links shown in the image? I'm not talking about pagination within a thread; merely the links visible in board view.
