New forum added for The Elder Scrolls Online

Mar 29, 2014 - 2:37 PM - by Grim
The game has generated a fair amount of discussion here on the boards so we're giving it a dedicated board to see how it does. You can find the board in the Game Boards section of the forum index.

"Like" feature added to the boards

Jan 20, 2014 - 1:13 PM - by Grim
This addon will be going live shortly and will allow posters to "Like" threads by clicking the button below the post you want to Like. You'll also notice you can track the number of given and received Likes below your icon in your user info. Receiving a Like will generate a notification so you can see what post you've received a Like on. You can also view and track threads you've given/received Likes on through your profile page.

In some ways this is a replacement for the reputation system which quickly capped out early on for most people. There is no limit to the number of Likes a person can receive on their posts so in a way this is more of an open ended replacement for the reputation system. Its also a good way for lurkers or people who want to show appreciation for a post but don't have anything specific to add in a post of their own about it to let someone know they enjoyed their post.

Enjoy (and cue the facebook jokes)

Regarding the Recent Downtime

Sep 04, 2013 - 6:59 PM - by Steelwind

As most of you aware, we recently were down for approx. 36 hours. Unfortunately, this was due to a vBulletin security issue that affected us and a lot of sites and forums out there. Steelwind caught this before much damage was done and most of the downtime was due to cleaning, plugging holes (patches installed, extra logging, more monitoring of databases, etc) and we also made use of the downtime to get some other general maintenance done at the same time. We don't believe this was done by anyone who posts or posted here, just one of those email harvesters to send out viagra spam and the like. We're very sorry for the downtime, but assure you it was necessary and for the good of the site and forums.

The hack, however, while cleaned, did manage to get into our databases. We are certain, at the very least, email addresses were harvested and it is likely things like PMs and forum posts were also taken. Though the passwords are salted and hashed (encrypted) in the database, it is always advisable to change your password here and anywhere else that uses the same password, just to be safe. Also, be on the lookout for suspicious emails and change any passwords that you've sent via PM.

Major thanks to Steelwind for spotting this and acting so fast. The time and effort he put in is incredible, and very much appreciated.
Just wanted to get the word out so everyone knew what happened.

Server outage update

Sep 04, 2013 - 3:51 AM - by Steelwind
Sorry for the length of the outage but a couple things came together in what pretty much was the perfect storm as far as shit hitting the fan so I just turned it into a massive maintenance window and did a bunch of other stuff while it was down. Once we get everything sorted out we'll have more info on what all happened.

New Feedback System

May 29, 2013 - 10:16 AM - by beibhinn
An actual feedback system is now in place for giving and receiving feedback for buys/sales and trades. This includes ingame trades for items and plat, account trades and account sales/buys. Ingame currency/item sales for RL cash are not allowed on these forums, just a reminder

Our new system is very similar to the eBay system for giving feedback. After a trade/sale is complete, you can leave feedback on the person's profile and that will show under their username (see mine on the left) and in more detail on a feedback tab on their profile page. This should allow for a more trackable, searchable and helpful system for trades and sales.

To leave feedback for someone:

  • Open their profile page (i.e.: http://www.postcount.net/forum/member.php?8-beibhinn ) and browse to the Feedback Score tab beside Visitor Messages.
  • From this page, you can see their current and past feedback ratings.
  • Click on View Complete Feedbacks for [username] to view their rating history which will show you who left the feedback and a short comment on the deal.
  • Click on Submit Feedback for [username] to leave feedback
  • On this page, select if you were the buyer, seller or if it was a trade.
  • Select the Feedback Experience: positive, neutral or negative.
  • Paste the thread link for the deal, this is a requirement and must be a postcount forum thread only, not outside site.
  • Enter a short comment that will be visible to everyone on the board who views this person's feedback history. There is a minimum character requirement of 20 and max of 80.
  • Enter a more detailed comment that only the buyer/seller sees.
  • Submit and done!

There are some rules!!!

  • Anyone found to be entering feedback for themselves (through their own account or an alt), will receive a warning and the feedback deleted. Continuing to do so will result in a ban of no less than 48 hours, which will also be extended as needed.
  • Negative feedback alert the admins/mods and be checked if it's an actual feedback or spam/troll
  • Spam feedback and abuse of the feedback system will result in bans.
  • Feedback rep will be important so don't abuse or mess with it. I can set this on/off per BOARD so if it's being abused and screwed with, I will turn it off for your board. This is to help and benefit the community, don't ruin it.
  • This is not like the rep system which can be abused, so just don't.

You can access an overall feedback page through the Community drop down menu on the navigation bar at the top of the board - select Feedback ( http://www.postcount.net/forum/itrader_main.php? )
And I've set some limitations and settings, which may change depending on what you guys think and how it's going overall.

  • There will be a limit of 24 hours between when you can rate the same person.
  • There is a 20 minimum characters for comments
  • There is an edit time of 10 minutes
  • Posters have 7 days to return rating for whatever VALID reason
  • Anyone with ratings upto 5 (1 rate per feedback, if you get me) will be considered by the system to be a "New Trader"
  • Maximum amount of ratings a new trader can give in 24 hours is 3 per day
  • A thread link is required for reference, feedback cannot be entered without a thread link to back up the trade/sale from THIS forum (postcount itself, any board)
  • Admins/mods will be alerted to all negative ratings to ensure they're actual and not spam/fake/trolling
  • Posters will be PM'd when there is a new rating, positive, neutral or negative
  • The person who left the rating gets a read receipt when this PM is opened

If you want to try it out, leave feedback on my profile and/or ask me or a mod to leave feedback on yours. Do not try it out with other posters because you will forget to ask for it to be fixed!

Mention or PM me to get my attention about something. Report any bad feedback to any admin or mod directly.
