Suggestion: Omnimaga Usergroups
« on: April 19, 2013, 05:17:04 pm »
I noticed that on Cemetech and Ti-Planet there are usergroups that you can be a part of. Not in the sense of moderators and such, but in the sense of groups of users.

Is there any way we can add that to the site?

That's a feature of PHPBB, but most of the time it's usually desactivated and reserved for mod groups.

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

It's available under SMF 2.0 actually.

In SMF 2.0, IIRC, there is also a premium/charter/supporter member group that you can set up so the user can pay $10 or something to remain in that group for 1 year and the user either has adsense disabled (although in Omni case we have no ads to begin with) or he has access to extra sub-forums.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

This wouldn't be about money. This would work like forumotion, but you guys would have more control than forumotion gives you.
Like, pianists, mathmmagicians, (I say it that way on purpose :P ), and favorite calculator model groups like 83+SE advocates or Nspire CX CAS advocates.
And the permission to create your own groups after you have X amount of posts.
Sir! Sir? Ah yes!
Yes, you sir! You seem to have lost something!
Oh? You don't know? You've lost the game, comrade. Good day!

Under SMF 1.1.18 (What we are one) this will not be possible. We may add something like this in the future. There are plans on an overhaul of the site, but it's eta is unknown as of yet.

I saw it too (the Maintenance mode warning of course lol, since we can't get in), but I seriously hope that a custom theme will be used instead (maybe a remake of the current theme, but lighter?) since using the default themes would be completely unoriginal and potentially kill Omnimaga (see what happened to United-TI after the IB 3.0 upgrade. Most people were complaining about the default theme and some people left because of it). Better take longer to do the massive upgrade right than rushing it then be sorry later.

In the worst case scenario where Omnimaga would stick to the default SMF 2.x theme, this is how the website would look like:

And if you need to look how your profile will look like, just register an account on SMF official website at http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php

GASP! It's a broken link?
Lol yeah when I fixed up an old site, many old users got back on simply because black is the new black.
Then, another Admin was traditional and was like "HEY! NOO!", banned me, and changed it back.
aforementioned site doesn't even exist anymore..

Speaking of usergroups, will there be a usergroup "OmnomIRC OP" which just has normal user rights, so that it only exists so that OmnomIRC can give these users OP status?

Regardless of if user groups are implemented, I think we should create the Omnimagan Guild of Pianists or something like that :P

Wait, why don't you have a piano avatar?
And was your team able to climb the pyramid?

I cleared out my dropbox and accidentally got rid of the avatar picture :P
I just changed it to a robot, but now that you found it, maybe I'll change it back :P

Omnimagan Guild of Pianists: let me think... you, Dapianokid, maybe some other people who I don't know play the piano, and me. That would be epic!

Add me then ;D

But I don't really see what would be the point of it. It would become sort-of-a-facebook.
