New update : "Abuse report" and "Credits management"

Post by Leviosa on April 23rd 2008, 3:39 pm

Hello all!

A new update has just been done on your forums, hope you'll be happy with the work Smile

1. Abuse report

In order to prevent Terms of Services infringment, any members can now report an abuse by clicking the link "report an abuse" of each page of the forums, as you can see below :



If you receive an abuse for your forum, to consult it :
Admin panel > misc > reported abuses
(If you don't see the section it's normal! That means you don't have any abuses Wink)

From there you can see all informations on your forum abuses, and handle them :



Please take all abuses seriously : they are not a sanction, but prevention.
So if the abuse is legit, you will need to take rapid actions in order to repair Terms of services infringments.
The visitor who will report you a legit infringment will therefore be preserving your forum from being deleted, if you take the necessary actions (such as deletion of the one or more incriminated pages and/or sections).

We (Forumotion staff) don't intervene in any way in abuses, but if a visitor comes to us saying he reported you an abuse, and that nothing has been done on your side, we will have to take the necessary actions ourselves, by deleting the specified infringments or the entire forum.

You can use our litigation tool for this matter, if contacting the founder wasn't enough :

2. Message edition duration limit for a member

You can now specify a certain amount of time after which a message won't be editable by a member anymore (in order of minutes, hours, or days) :
Admin panel > general configuration > "Message edition duration limit for a member"



Just leave "none" checked if you want to keep your options by default, as they were before the update Wink

3. Enhancement and modifications of the points (credits) system

The points you used to buy to get new options for your forum have now changed their name : they are now credits, in order to stop the misunderstanding between "directory points" and "Paid points".
Admin panel > misc > credits managements

The menu has been modified and is now smooth and more easy to use :



As you can see, you now just need to pick and choose the option you wish to buy, and there you go Smile


That's all for today, but I can also add an hidden feature that you might not have seen yet : the geolocation map !

It's simply accessible by clicking the "who is online ?" link at the bottom of your index page :



You can now see where all your users are from, in live !



Cheers to everyone for using our services, stay tuned for fresh news shortly !
