Xenforo Suggestions

I was wondering if our forum comes with free updates. If so it may be time.
It seems spoiler tags aren't active here and it would be a nice thing to have for some threads.
Reading up on it on the XenForo site, it seems as if its just an addon we're missing.
Thoughts? Are there new updates out there that could be useful to us?

Spoiler tags would be great!

Yes, I believe the 1.1 update is out now. It involves uploading something like 3500 files to the site, but I'll try to find time to do it soon (not tonight, celebrating my wife's birthday!)

Wow, hanging out with your family instead of us.

You should be ashamed.

I was wondering if post deletion of other's posts (Not moderators and admin's) would be a possibility if your the thread's creator? I'd like to her people's opinions on such a thing.

horrible idea, thats an easy way to censor a thread and sway it in the direction you want by not allowing anyone to speak against what you wanted. If you have a problem with a post there is always the report button. If you don't like where its going, and your the creator, just delete the origional post and I believe that kills all other posts under you.

That was my big concern. My main idea would be for creators of forum games to be able to delete those posts which don't follow the specified rules. Not a big deal, obviously, but it can be frustrating when people don't behave maturely when doing such a thing.

Just glad to hear opinions on it, :D

The Forum Games is one thing. There it could work and be ok, but think how that ability could get abused in other threads/sections. I too get annoyed by the off topic posts that pop up, but we don't have that many forum moderators that can go around moving and editing threads. It would turn into a full time job trying to fix all the little things. If the post is completely derailing a thread, it can be reported, and thats when you (you as in anyone who started the thread) need to step in, tell people to focus, and get it back on topic.

Did we ever figure anything out with spoiler tags? I would love to have them, I tried but could not get them to work...

"Will update eventually! (Not tonight" Okay thanks for the date specification XD

By the way spoiler tags are things that condense long posts,

I could condense it down to a small tag that you can click to reveal to full thing. Very handy for hiding spoilers to stories and stuff too.
