Make it so that the forum doesn't crash on big election days? Tongue I know this is likely server related, but I figured it's worth getting out there. Smiley

I actually already created a feature for that for the next update. I made it so create a list of dates that would be designated as election days, and the forum would operate in a sort of reduced functionality mode, where certain features that suck up large amounts of processing power would be disabled temporarily.

Shocked Fingers crossed!

What kind of features are those?

Trump does not have America's interests in mind: he does not know what these are and he does not care to learn. What he cares about is his own ego. He is willing to destroy America and the world to satisfy it.

What kind of features are those?

Features that are temporarily disabled in some way are configurable, but they are limited to resource-heavy operations such as determining what topics you have unread posts in, or what the last post you read in a certain topic is, or whether you've participated in a certain topic. These are all things that you may not even really notice. For instance, when you click on a thread that has the new thing next to the subject on a board listing, it brings you to the last post you read instead of the end of the thread. This takes a lot of resources to determine sometimes because the database table that has it can contain millions of records on a forum this big.

Other ones I added are the Recent Posts page, which is arguably the single most resource-intense feature on the forum, due to all the information it has to collect in one page view.

Edit: Also, the Search function, which can lag the server during high-activity times. But that's already not working anymore..

My only ask is if you could see and organize forum members by activity in the "Members List" tab.

I could also see the utility of this on days with a major national or international event. Does such a feature need to be scheduled or can it be triggered by a defined level of activity?

SMF 2.0+ has a load balancing feature that operates by CPU load (or something else), but unfortunately I don't have such a thing for this. I suppose I could do it, and I thought about it before, but I don't know what that sweet spot for CPU usage % is where turning off certain functions would be useful. I'd have to play around with it while on a high-activity night, and I can't do that. The best way, given our circumstances as proverbial digital latchkey kids in the House of Leip is to just provide a list of dates months ahead of time where the feature auto-activates/deactivates on its own. Although I did include a permission setting for the feature, so Dave could give us control of the ENM feature if he wanted.

But as I posted some time ago, the years-long shift from IPv4 to IPv6 will force Dave to upgrade to SMF 2.1 probably sometime in the year 2020, at the latest. Then perhaps the ENM feature could be mingled with the load balancing thing.

What about a face palm emoticon like these: 🤦‍♂️ 🤦‍♀️?
Is there a SMF repertoire you can choose from, or can you even draw your own, individual emoticons?

I think a save drafts (preferably automatic) feature would be the most crucial thing right now. I can't count the amount of times I lost a huge timeline post because of bad internet or a clicking mistake.

Could you possibly make it so that you can add code to your signature without it going against your character limit? It doesn't appear in the final version so I don't see why it would need to be limited.

Missing far more than just Iceland Tongue. A couple users made some extra avatars and I sent them to Dave as part of the last update, but for whatever reason, he never uploaded them. And that is after I reminded him several times, so as far as I am concerned, there is probably no point in pursuing this further.

The easiest solution for this would probably be to increase the number of characters allowed in signatures. Without getting to into the technical stuff, ignoring bbcode in terms of character count would not by any means be straight forward, since not all bbcode is predictable. Some, like [b][/b] is, but stuff like quote tags, images and urls aren't.

Stop trying so hard. This is the 2nd nonsense post you've made in this thread and it's not particularly funny.
