Community redesign coming...

By sMoRTy71 ·
OK, I figure now is a great time to post some of the comps from our upcoming community revamp/redesign.

Not going to go into a ton of explanation about these comps. I want to get everyone's reaction without any prompting about how things might work.

So here goes:
Start a thread / Ask a question

Please let us know your thoughts. BTW, I didn't make these comps, so you can't hurt my feelings (don't you love a challenge?).

A quibble about TR as we know it

by stargazerr In reply to Community redesign coming ...

I have tried subscribing to this discussion 2 or 3 times now without success. Is this part of the mysterious bug that has engulfed TRI??

What exactly is happening? Does it look as though you're subscribed, but you're not receiving updates? Or are you getting a PNF?

erm ..... PNF??

Wat happens is ... I click on the subscribe link in the thread but the discussion doesnt show up as one of my Discussions Subscribed To: in My discussions.

I might be completely off my rocker here, since I have never tried to subscribe to a TRI discussion before.

Edited to add: The subscribe link is grayed out, which means the script responsible acknowledges that I have subscribed to this thread. Only it doesnt show in the Discussions subscribed to section.

You are subscribed, but...

You are subscribed to the thread and will receive email and workspace updates to the discussion.

However, because it is in the Insiders forum it has been supressed so it will not appear in various other places and tease non-insiders. (You know they're jealous!) Unfortunately, that means it can't show up in your My Discussions area. Sorry about that.

you know

a simple way of having the different access levels that are used, and not get the showing / not showing bugs..

base the visiblility on a user level field in the db...

1) regular free member
2) regular free member with TRI access
3) regular TPG member
4) regular TPG member with TRI access

when user logs in thier level is used to set if TRI displays or not, those without don't see TRI stuff at all, those with accesshave it show mixed in with every feature.

very similar idea to the Moderator access of php-nuke et-al

The reason I subscribe to a thread is because I want it to show in a different area. That way, I can be sure it wont slip off the My discussions page.

But thanks a lot for the help. :)

If you look in the Discussions Participated in you'll find an entry there for any TRI discussions that you are subscribed to so provided you keep adding comments to this discussion you'll see it to wards the top of that part of the page.

Incidentally as a warning Don't upset Beth she is really nasty and makes the original Dominatrix look like a Pussy Cat.

She insists that hew whip is endless and can reach anywhere in the world to wreak revenge on anyone who has upset her. Think of an Evil GG but to a factor of 1,000,000 and you'll be getting close. :^0
