AUGUST 2011 - UPDATE #7!


So then, let's get back to our business. Seemed like last time were so less updates because I wasn't online. Or maybe nothing just happened in June 2011. Anyway, thanks to the staff who has fixed that stupid jumpto tag glitch, now it's much more easier to edit the guide. Again, this month I'll be away, although for a week only, not big trouble, but I'll generally try to keep an eye on everything that will happen this month. Anyway, enough talk, let's get back to updating! tounge.gif
So then, here's the August 2011 update list:
  • Added the LCS Forum Index, Gaming Chat Index, Gaming Reviews Index & III Coding Index at Main Topics. (12.2)
  • Added the new way to custom the Edit By line, thanks to Kweckzilber. (7.2)
  • Added Kweckzilber to the "Thanks" list. (13.1)
  • Added the Server Problems, Server Status & Whitelist Access at the Minecraft Server section of main topics. (12.2)
  • Added Raindancer to the Retired Staff - Moderators list and delete him from the actual Moderators. (9.3)
  • Changed Girish's name at Special Awards from "girishb" to "Girish". (2.5)
  • Changed the star symbols (question marks lately) to keyboard stars ***. (7.1 & 7.2)
  • Deleted BlueSpot, papanesta, Miamivicecity & Struff Bunstridge from the Special Collection section. (2.5)
  • Deleted the -1 post glitch of mike39, the -8,388,468 post glitch of Morph and the jumpto tags glitch. (6.2)
  • Edited the description of the Provocative Discussion Award. (2.1)
  • Edited the description of the Group change glitch. (6.2)
  • Edited the description of the Jumpto tags at Advanced Posting Tags. (7.2)
  • Edited the first post with 6,000,000 posts instead of 5,500,000 and 390,000 members instead of 350,000. (1.0)
  • Fixed the position of the Major Contribution Award picture and its description. (2.1)
  • Fixed the jumpto tags that weren't working at the Multi-Player section. (3.0, 3.1 & 3.2)
  • Linked this update to the Guide updates list. (13.2)
  • Updated the picture which shows the medal location on Impact's profile, since it has expired. (2.1)
  • Updated the Base Gallery list of Avatars with the new options (GTA CW, TBoGT & TLaD). (4.5)
  • Updated the GTA:LCS Chain Story topic with the new link. (12.1)
  • Updated the Funny Games list with the new round of San Andreas & Vice City Chain Games. (12.1)
So yeah, that would be everything. I'm still saying it, if any official group wants to share any information about it, they're free to do it anytime. A reminder though, if you send me today, Monday August 1st, 2011 the information, I'll add it today, if you send me in any other day between August 2nd, 2011 & September 1st, 2011 it'll appear in the September 2011 update. That being said, let's get on quoting! biggrin.gif

Or just leave miamivicecity as an example.

I just deleted all of the ones who have Provocative Discussion Award, mainly because the ones getting that award are more and more + that they're also given as joke. So I just deleted them. tounge.gif

]Also, forward links for 2.1 through 2.5 don't work. icon14.gif

Are you sure? I tested all possible jumpto tags that I made, and everything seems to work perfectly. Hmm... is there a way to explain a little better, I just can't get it. suicidal.gif

QUOTE (Peter Brezovan @ Saturday, Jul 16 2011, 03:14)
After a lot of browsing I got the names of all gold medalists here.

Suction Testicle Man
Dutchy3010
Ryan
CCPD
Ottae


There are 5 guys.

I found a few guys with silver medals too.

Girish
PatrickW
Waddy
anuj

EDIT-Forgot OnePiece.

I will look for some special collections and put it here if you so like.

No sh*t. lol.gif
First, I don't post guys who have silver medals, I post the ones who have anything interesting about it. Who've got most awards, or simply their log looks special. Second, anuj has only 3 awards. Only because he's got a blue medal doesn't mean that he's also got 4 awards, since staff can fool the system easier. Take a look at one of Rockstar Toronto's posts and look at his medal. He's got a silver-blue medal, but he's got no awards in it, which makes it invalid. Same goes for Suction Testicle Man. What the hell I'm doing here? You're banned!

QUOTE (Byzantine @ Monday, Aug 1 2011, 00:39)
Thanks! This helped me a lot!

Glad it help you mate. wink.gif
I still find it interesting how people bump this topic with a day or two before it was automatically going to be bumped by me and my guide updates. Now this is hilarious! ph34r.gif

1. Silver medals used to be for 3 commendations. It had to be bumped up because people were getting bullsh*t medals for stupid sh*t.
2. Why would I want to fool the system? I designed all the medals on this site save 1 or 2.
3. Who the hell are you

Hey man, no need to get angry. I think I explained it bad. confused.gif
I meant that I'm not listing people who have silver medals, this doesn't mean that you don't deserve yours. And I had no idea that in the past 3 commendations made the blue medal, thanks for informing me.

About the system fooling, I meant that medals can be given without any commendations - that's what happened to Rockstar Toronto. And yes, I do know that you created the medals, and you've also done a great work! Who I am? Hmm...

Anyway, I fixed some more jumpto tags that weren't working. Seems like all the Multi-Player section (3.0, 3.1 & 3.2) had wrong jumpto tags. Thanks to kizzck though, I fixed them. icon14.gif

Also, who's impact and why does he have a medal at 11 posts? He posted the forum rules too, never got the guy.

My award shows up in profile, last I looked, but not in my regular postings. I still am honored to have one, though now I must strive to get back to that level of award

I think he is right, Forum Admins = highest rank someone has on the forum.

@ Andy: Apparently that group is hidden, just as the Retired Staff one. I think he could be a returning admin or something.

What Ryan said tounge.gif

I think it could be some sort of glitch, or somebody managed to change it somehow.

The problem is, new members never see the pinned topics.

Plus, this used to be pinned but I don't know why the staff decided to unpin it.

SEPTEMBER 2011 - UPDATE #8!


Late, late, late. I know, but my damn PC didn't let me update this guide. It, unlucky enough, went down exactly in the updating day - September 1st, 2011. I wanted after that to update the guide on September 8th, 2011 but I needed time to look around to what happened. So, I though that September 11th, 2011 would be the day. It is one important date, especially for Americans. It's the 10 year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks from 2001. This date is pretty important, so I couldn't miss it. It's sad, many people died without any reason, but life's a struggle and we all know it. Well, rest in peace all people who have died back then. You're all heroes...
