Jail mod?

JinniganJinnigan Registered User regular
The jailing system here is very unique and would be highly helpful to my board. Would it be possible to get at that code, either in raw form or a patch of some kind? I don't have terribly advanced php skills, and I think that dealing with pre-written code would be easier than writing one from scratch. If you guys would rather I write my own, or don't want to release it for other reasons, fair enough.

    You might want to take this over to either the Help Forum or the G&T forum. The Jail mod is nothing more than a set of Rank modifications, as far as I understand.

    From what I can tell:

    Disabled BBCodes
    Capped display size
    Special Avatar/Rank Title

    Actually I was wondering what exactly a "jailed" person was, I figured that it was not preferable.

    So what does "capped display size" mean? I get the other two penalties.

    Total amount of text in a post. There seems to be a text display limit to people who are jailed. I'm sure that that is not a phpBB modified variable, so that's some sort of custom edit that AlphaMonkey has done.

    That is incredibly nifty.

    I like it.

    There's an increased post timer too. And yeah, Alpha and Ramius have done tons of modifications to the code.

    I would like to see that packaged up as an installable mod as well.

    If I ever get the time, I might do it. I just have a lot on my plate right now, as is I'm not posting nearly as much as I should be on the forums.

    Also I've toyed heavily with the idea of when we do the software change to the new forum, releasing the source code of this forum for people to pick through. If I did that would someone pick up the code and splice out the jail part?

    uhm... out of curiousity, how long does being jailed last?

    i could go on and even say i feel i was jailed... unjustfully... but i won't do that.






    ......shit.

    EDIT: Man I am so sorry I thought this was a completely different section of the forums... I know this forum is more serious-driven, sorry about this post... I'd delete it but hey, I just got quoted, and I don't see a delete box, sooo...

    :|

    (hey, as a side note/idea, maybe have an auto-PM or a section only jailed people can see that says what being jailed does to your posting??? I always thought it was kind of a joke until I got jailed myself)

    EDIT 2: I just found the delete button, but what the hell? I'll leave the post here for others` entertainment, I guess.

    PM the mod that jailed you.

    Failing that, PM Whippy.

    Also, although the title does have "Jail" in it, this really isn't the place for this.

    Well, since Pheezer jailed you, ask him through a PM.


    Edit: Damnit, you beat me.

    Be as gay as you can. You're already dressed as a pirate, that's a good first step.
