    Updates Updates Updates

    Hello everyone,

    This will be a thread just for small updates to the forums that aren't massive enough to have their own thread, to let you, the community, know what's going on.

    First round:
    • Beli lottery ticket price reduced to 200 to make it a bit more accessible to broke people
    • Monthly interest on all bank deposits to encourage people to keep their funds accessible to steal attempts. How nice of us
    • Recovered smilies renamed
    • Activation e-mail issue finally completely resolved. If you haven't activated yet there's an email waiting for you... unless you're one of the 37 people who submitted invalid e-mail addresses, like zombiesucks@dick.us for example. dick.us returned the e-mail as the user was nonexistent. Could've been a error on their side tho! I can't be sure.

  2. The Following 20 Users Say Thank You to Nexus For This Useful Post:

    Degakun  (Sep 28th '14), Eustass Captain Kid  (Sep 30th '14), Going Merry  (Oct 1st '14), Haiko Kai  (Sep 29th '14), Kikyo  (Sep 29th '14), Loni  (Sep 28th '14), Matternativ  (Sep 28th '14), Min  (Oct 24th '14), Nathan  (Sep 29th '14), Overhaul  (Sep 29th '14), Pride  (Oct 23rd '14), Rayleigh  (Sep 28th '14), Redeyes  (Apr 11th '15), Rise-Chan  (Sep 28th '14), Sanzen  (Sep 28th '14), ShichiDrewKai  (Sep 28th '14), Toon Link  (Sep 29th '14), Udayan11  (Sep 29th '14), Vergil  (Sep 29th '14), Zellas  (Dec 3rd '14)

    Round two

    • Users with incorrect e-mails who haven't posted within 1 year will be deleted, regardless if they are periodically online or not. Make sure your e-mail addresses work.
    • New template, just a little somethin' somethin' for Halloween. Special events are coming so make sure you look out for an announcement thread. It might not be posted in a very visible place Also a thank you to @Grim for making this delicious banner and @ShichiDrewKai for mistake hunting the template after I've had a long day deep deep inside CSS's butt. It's dark in there.


    Note: In case you don't like the banner, at the bottom of the forums you can choose to display the current regular template. If it doesn't work well or look good to you, you deserve it. Stop using Internet Explorer.
    Yes, the home page remained the same. There may or may not be a whole new design for that coming.

    More of a notice than an update

    We just experienced some downtime (along with some other sites) which happened due to network issues the datacenter where we host the server had. It's resolved and there should be no more issues.

    In the event of more issues arising don't worry, we got backups galore and OPB isn't going anywhere ;D

    Enjoy,
    Vice-Pa

    Round Four

    Minor things important for you people:
    • Awards have finally been fully fixed, thank you for your patience
    • New payment method for the Premium memberships to support OPB Forums has been added: BitCoin. As a rule, payments in BTC will always be cheaper than PayPal due to 0 transfer fees and the pure awesomeness BitCoins are. Current price is Ƀ0.019 and is prone to change very frequently
    • Advertisements have been added to the Manga pages. Please deactivate your adblockers to help us continue the stability of our community, or consider supporting us in a different way if you can.. it costs money. Like I said before, all ads we will ever run have been checked by me and I made sure none of them are scams. If it asks for an email or something, don't freak out
    • Staff changes have been made, congratulations to:
      • @Sanzen for becoming a community administrator
      • @ShichiDrewKai for becoming a super moderator (now in charge of sections previously maintained by Sanzen)
      • @ReXii for becoming a super moderator (in charge of the RolePlay)

    • Also thank you to our former staff members, the work you have put into our community is highly appreciated:

    • And last but not least, almost all subliminal messages have been removed

    Round Five

    Due to a lot questions received, please acknowledge that the:

    • Patrons usergroup was added, it is reserved for people who have donated to OPB and old staff members without either of which OPB would not exist anymore today
    • Having said that, at this time, due to a large amount of interest, there is 1 more moderator position (for a section of your own choice) available to you if you donate as per the old supporter offer. PM me for more info

    On a different note:

    • The advertisements on the manga pages have been removed, new ones may or may not be introduced. The old ones just weren't working in our favor
    • The Beli update happened, read about it here if you haven't yet
    • A new type of domain security (DNSSEC) is being introduced, this will guarantee you that you are indeed browsing OPB Forums at all times, and not some fake website in the middle that would want to steal your personal information
    • You can now use the new .gifv format, provided by Imgur. You can read more about it here. The new BB code is [gifv][/gifv]. You use it by putting only part of the URL, after you've uploaded it to imgur, in between the tags like this:


    Original URL: http://i.imgur.com/zvATqgs.webm

    BB Code: [gifv]zvATqgs[/gifv]

    Result:



    • And in conclusion, about 90% of the remaining subliminal messages have been removed

    Round Six

    Not many, but very important updates:

    • We are now showing advertisements in any manga discussion section, in 2 separate places, and they are visible to guests only. Members still remain completely ad free on the forums, probably manga as well as it's simply not working out


    • We have implemented a rather thorough and informative Privacy Policy for you. I believe you will find it works very much in your favour, and also please be aware that continuing to browse OPB Forums after this post you fully accept this new Privacy Policy, presently and recursively. You can read it right here or find a link to it at the bottom of the forums, close to the "Top" button. I will do my best to notify everyone of any changes to it in a timely manner through this thread


    • Long time user, dear friend, and "specially invaluable" staff member, @Zombie, has left the staff ranks due to work on other projects. Thank you very much for all you've done, good luck with your projects, and enjoy being one of our Patrons


    • Some of the remaining subliminal messages have been successfully removed

Active subscriptions will remain active and run for the remainder of the purchased period. Thank you for supporting us, we wouldn't be live without you

    Round Nine

    Staff expansions:
    • Laboon joins the ranks of moderator after passing the moderator applications
    • Nise, Kaeyuu, and Sōma join our GFX Team with the mission to bring face-lifting sexiness to the website and forums
    • ReXii returns as a moderator preparing to bring you something fun.. that's all I'm gonna say

    And more:
    • We have made a Patreon page where you can now pledge as little as $1 and work together with other members towards unlocking milestone goals and making this place better, while being rewarded with quite a few things for it. Especially when we unlock the raffle milestone you can read more about our page over there, in general, here (weird teaser included), and you can review our goals and your rewards over at Patreon
    • The username safekeeping function that prevented you from going back to your username for a year after switching to a different one has been removed. Username change galore!
