This is where I will list modifications.

If you set your profile before the listed dates, there might be new/changed profile settings for you to reevaluate.

4 Aug:

Theme Selection:
Now allowing users to select either the purplish (ezSerenity) or silverish (subSilver) themes; ezSerenity is the default, and is what unregistered visitors will see.

Magelo Link: Changed "Website" to "Magelo Link"; please update this field in your profile, as the linking button and tooltip now indicates that it is your magelo link. Also created a stand-out button graphic for both the ezSerenity and subSilver themes.

Widened quick reply text box, full reply text box, and new topic text box:

Added member ranks to the memberlist view, and colored althernating rows: just because.

Also darkened up the link text for more contrast against the non-white background.

Also fixed typo preventing new users from registering!

Post is Sending:
Changed "Submit" button to "Sending" to confirm click of Submit button, and to prevent accidental double posts.

Highlight Topic User Posted In:
In Forum View, the title of any topic that you have posted in should be showing in this lovely color to let you know that you have posted in that topic. This includes topics that you have started.

Bored with the downtime on a work-from-home day ( :evil: ), I edited profiles for everyone with 10 or more posts, and coded in their magelos and servers whose info was easily discernable from their posts. Feel free to go back and edit your profile if you don't like it.

Somewhat annoyed with people not somehow magically being aware of the wealth of content available at samanna.net, I hacked the php code and included the same navigation code I use there in the header file here.

Nonraider Gear Page:
located here, it lists by Type (plate/chain/leather/silk) the gear that most nonraiders can expect to obtain for the visible slots. I hope to follow up with one for the non-visible slots by Archetype (melee/priest/caster/hybrid). Similar to the old LDoN listing

Also prioritized stickies in some forums, and retitled some stickied posts for easier reference.

My buddy who hosts my domains updated the forum version from 2.0.17 to 2.0.18.
Unfortunately, he overwrote some of the .17 files with vanilla .18 files, undoing some of the mods I put in. I'm going to sort through it and figure out what needs to be reapplied.

Postby Samanna on 07 Nov 2005 16:16

7 Nov, more:

I'm going to manually revert the .18 files to .17 saves I have, and then Tony will manually apply the .18 upgrades
, so that all the mods are saved, rather than me re-searching phpbb.com and phpbbhacks.com to try and remember/find each of the mods I've applied.

Thanks, T!

Also added Level 70 Focus charts (without Shaman gear) for others to use to see where they stand.

Mid Feb:

Broke out Demystified! section of AA page
as its own page, calculating per-AA returns for progressive AAs.

Revised Menus a bit. It's been stated (and I agree) that there's no way to keep up with the automated item collection databases. However, I feel like there's a niche to be filled in listing one-groupable loots, so I've put all of the offsite links onto one page, revised that list, and moved the one-groupable loot for visible slots pages to their own directory, under the fourth pulldown menu. I anticipate this growing as loots from PoR missions become known.

As always, suggestions are welcome, either via PM or a comment somewhere. I read just about every post here. :)

H4XX0RZ!

AIM, YIM, MSNM and ICQ fields hacked to be EverQuest Players, Vanguard Players, WoW Armory, and EQII Players profiles, respectively (as I earlier changed website to Magelo profile). My apologies to anyone who was getting use out of those buttons.

Please visit your profile page and check your settings.

Note: You may have to manually reload the graphics for the buttons in the post footers. I know I did.

Magelo Image Image
For this, I left it as-is, since so many people had already entered their full URLs; for example, mine is: http://eq.magelo.com/profile/432653.
Note that the old, v1 URLs will automatically forward to the new ones.

EQPlayers Image Image
For this, it's just the character profile number; for example, mine is: 554050782533.

WoWArmory Image Image
For this, it's the unique "r=(realm)&n=(name)" string of your profile; for example, Bethiana's is: r=Lightbringer&n=Bethiana.

VGPlayers Image Image
For this, it's just the character profile number; for example, mine is: 64424547288.

EQII Players Image Image
For this, it's just the character profile number; for example, Agnar's is: 227579202.

Feb:

Finally got around to a lot of updates, including Kilgaroz's Crystallos Access Guide http://samanna.net/eq.progression/prog. ... llos.shtml and Tordail's Augments pages http://samanna.net/eq.shaman/t.augs1.shtml and http://samanna.net/eq.shaman/t.augs2.shtml as well as the writeup on our issues with slows and heals http://samanna.net/sham.issues/slows.feb08.shtml

Looking into a phpBB 3.0 migration, which would give a lot of flexibility as to what forums were expanded or collapsed based on individual or group settings, but that would lose all the mods I've added to date.

I have been trying to get the Vanguard Shaman community to come over here, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen... at least for now.

Oh, the L80 Focus Charts are finally done, with all input.

Please let me know if I've overlooked your submission/correction. January was very busy for me (and some of February, too).

Thanks!
