Re: Final vB Testing
 
Although I've probably done it maybe ten times, it is kind of a shame there's not a mod in vB to enable mods to give out custom titles. For whatever reason a lot of posters really take that seriously, possibly because it has to be "earned". When I've done it they come away like beaming schoolchildren. There are a number of reasons it's a good idea, really.

--when you insert a link into a post, you can no longer name that link something, the url will just show up in the text of your post?

--when making a new reply, you can insert an email address. we probably don't want that, right?

Don't see the email address thing as being a problem. We can always disable it if it becomes one, though.

we have to crackdown on homepages doing to coaching sites and stuff now right? Since there is a link when you click on someone's name directly from threads that says "Go to X's homepage!" Not only this but it opens it in the same window which compounds the issue.

lastly, how do we get into user's profiles to ban and what not? I need a tutorial!

Well I'll be willing to give out titles when you guys ask, and Mat may not mind granting some requests either. So they won't be entirely gone, just less numerous.

If anything is allowed in profiles I don't see this as a problem. If Mat does we'll get it disabled. But nowhere is anyone being told to go a site or anything like that. Making the link more accessible shouldn't change that the general thinking with allowing stuff in profiles has always been that as long as you're not trying to actively and directly promote it you're fine.
