Searching for threads from a specific user

Postby Scratch » Mon Jan 14, 2013 11:52 pm

Let me preface this with the facts that I have no knowledge of PhBB coding, or coding in general, and thus do not know the limits of the forum system.
I have a suggestion for improvement to the forum system, I have been having trouble sorting out the timeline of several important factions in the brikverse, and feel that the process could be simplified with a button to show all threads created by a specific user, I have seen this done on other forums (may or may not be PhBB) and think it would be a very good idea to add, if only to help me figure out how battles with out an arc-thread go in order.

Wouldn't be great in this case, since individual factions show up in lots of different people's threads. You can click on people's names and see all their posts though, I use that all the time.

The better option is for people to just keep on updating their faction info in the new wiki. I've been cooking up new page templates and stuff over time to help create a uniform presentation style.

Examples:

Super Mega Brikpocalypse Holiday Killtacular 2012

I use that function fairly regularly, however it is annoying if the person has either a metric fuckton of posts, or shitposts half the time.

Here's what I do: Go to Advanced search (click on the link under the search box), then type in the name of the person who's posts you are looking for. Select any specific forums you want to search in (Armory, Administation, Thunderdumb, Bricks, etc.) if you don't select any, then it will seach within all of them. You also have to select search within topic titles and display as Topics. That will show you all the user's topics in the selected forums.

I updated my page with a modified Appearances column, check it out. I think this is a bit better than the one you made for Piltogg. It has a Result column which details what happened with colour codes. Results I came up with:

Victory - A clear victory where the opponents were soundly defeated
Complicated Victory - A victory where the opponents were not defeated, but you achieved your victory conditions
Defeat - You did not complete victory conditions and you were soundly defeated
Unresolved - Battle not completed
No Contest - Where one person plays both sides in the same game, or a game that got set up but never happened

There should probably also be a Complicated Defeat result, but I haven't found a Forum Battle that I played in where it wasn't any of the other categories yet.

I would update the wiki more if I could embed images hosted on other sites. The current procedure to embed images is a real hassle and so I only update pages that are really important to me.

Start devoting small amounts of time to things that are cool? I'm talking like 4 hours a week for whatever it is you want to do. I think 4 hours is manageable. Also, I don't waste time watching tv. I of course waste time in other places, but almost anything is more productive than watching tv.

:protip: If you act like something is cool that tends to make it cool.

My face when I saw the two random black bands on her right arm. She's an amateur at best. An amateur with fancy lighting. Also, her neck line is too low.

Yeah I saw the bands too.
Everything else was so good, no idea why she left them on like Bonn-o-Tron.

Silver, you are my FRIEND, which means you have my undying loyalty whether you want it or not but I'm not going to kiss up to you.

...Besides, that wasn't brown-nosing, rather my lamenting I wasn't born a woman...
Sure, I'd probably be an Ax Murderer, but at least I'd be a SUCCESSFUL Ax Murderer...

You make it sound so easy...

...But really, what am I suppose to be doing that I'm not ALREADY devoting unhealth amounts of time to?

Actually, I haven't been able to watch a whole lot of television...

Since my dad is no longer working, he mostly hogs both halfs of the Dish, and I don't even know if our Aerial antenna is still on the roof let alone there being anything on Network Broadcasting worth watching...

...You grew up in populated areas, didn't you?

Yeah, when you live in the middle of nowhere and the only people you see regularly are your parents and the occasional Habitation Thérapy worker, the BEST you can hope for is to be called "Eccentric"...

...More likely you'll just get sent to a Hospital Psych-ward or the County "Home for the Mentally Ill"...

Your account needs to have the "bold," "italic," and "underline" functions disabled.
