Nickname change enabled at 20:33 EEST by Abula
It's possible to change your nickname now and it's limited to one change per three months. You don't lose your old nickname either but old links (/player/oldnick, search etc.) are pointing to the new one.
Next I'll reserve some old player nicknames so no new players won't be able to take them by accident (Champi0N, zeth, PeXi etc.)
Moreover if your current nickname is a typo (or including disallowed team tag) please contact me and we fix it so that you won't have that false one in your nickname history.

Access keys at 7:01 EEST by Abula
are worth trying in order to make surfing easier on Moposite.

Comment watch at 23:12 EEST by Abula
coded the comment watch and we implemented it to the system. You can start watching comments in certain news, player gallery pictures or identities. When more places for comments are coded they will be added to this watch.
The comment watch is automatically enabled for your own Identity and Gallery pictures (you can disable them). The comment watch is managed through links under Functions
in the right column in certain pages.
Receiving a comment makes a drop-down-menu box visible in Panel
in the left column (the place where you see your nickname in yellow).
Please share your thoughts, report bugs and start writing comments to people :).

IRC pages at 19:19 EEST by Abula
I've uploaded the new IRC page
. Lots of new text, logs, stats and pictures there.
We also need some help
to get more truthful statistics.
Golden Apple Awards pages at 15:06 EEST by Abula
With a great help of SveinR I've created the GAA pages, at last. You find them under Community. Special thanks to skint0r for offering web space for FEM05 videos (there's one from the GAA05 gala). As usually please report all errors and improvement suggestions.

Players section improvements at 17:43 EEST by Abula
Several changes in Players section
- You can change the default page which is opened when using /player/xxxx link (Settings), many people wanted to get directly to Identity page instead of the Summary page
- Number of pictures are displayed under Navigation in right column in the player page, so you don't have to go to Gallery to check whether the player has pictures or not
- New country: Lithuania
- Combined some cities (now HELSINKI, helsinki and Helsinki are all the same)
- Simple player search (left column), more advanced later
- Bug fixes regarding picture uploads (some old pictures are not displayed, please remove them and reupload) and sorting lists

New kuski gallery at 23:41 EEST by Abula
Although we are not calling it kuski gallery anymore. Just generic Players
All the old accounts with comments and default pictures are converted so go ahead to edit them or even add new ones.
Some good shortcuts to know (try them): your nick in the left column (yellow), Panel link in the left column.
- Player search
- Comment watch
- Old nicknames
There are many errors left. At least people have weird cities, ages, birth dates and stories. We will try to fix most of them later but you could try to fix yours. And request your friends to fix theirs as well.
We have also added Argentina as new country and removed Miranda. Anything else needed?
Please report bugs, ask questions and suggest improvement here in comments or in Mopolauta

Kuski gallery at 23:32 EEST by Abula
I have locked kuski gallery database so no new data (comments, users, edits) shouldn't be possible to insert. We are doing maintenance.

Minimize left column boxes at 18:05 EEST by Abula
We have coded a possibility to minimize and maximize boxes in the left column. You can do that by clicking the +/- in the heading row. In addition you can set those static in Settings
. Personally I find, for instance, Search good to have always minimized.
Ps. we have some problems with Reset to default
option in Panel, so don't care about that.

User contests category at 1:43 EEST by Abula
We have just decided to create a new category to News: User contests (it's Low
priority so it needs to be enabled in Settings
). It's a child category of Contests and meant for people who want to write news to Moposite about their own contest (for example because you updated the page or added new levels). Alot of players read the Moposite news so if you wish, you are more than welcome to use this feature, we think it's likely to give contests more players and thus make contests more interesting.
What we require is that your contest is of some quality, and that it's either been running for a while or that you have previously done something similar and have been noticed at some level in the community. And obviously you also have to be able to write English. We also expect that those willing to use this feature will have something to write about more than once in a year.
As with everything, this privilege too comes with responsibility, so if you write off-topic or abuse your right to write, we wont hesitate on taking your privilege away. In extreme cases banning might be considered, but we wish that there will be no need for such measures as this is meant to be for everyones benefit.
If you are willing to try, please mail your nick and url of your contest to
. And yes, the contest must be running in your own site.

News filters at 23:12 EEST by Abula
Some instructions of using Base and Temporary filters has been written to FAQ
The default filters are set to Medium
, we assume that most people don't want to read all the not-so-important news. This means that by default the user (you) can't see the Low
priority news. To see those news you should change your filters to All - Low
in Base filters, on the Settings
page. In addition you can override the Base filters by using the Temporary filters (look at the right column).
If you can't change the filters yourself (try again!) just use this link shortcut
to see all the news on Moposite. The currently used temporary filters are displayed in a box above the news.
To filter a sub-set of the Base filters' set, uncheck the Disable Base filters
. Otherwise don't touch it. Headlines in the left column shows only the Medium
priority news, RSS feed includes all.
I hope this cleared a bit, don't hesitate to ask if not. Filters were quite a work to code so would be shame to not use them.

Information and Knowledge merge at 23:36 EEST by Abula
Many people found the Information and Knowledge's grouping confusing and in fact I agree. I'm not really sure why it was made like that initially but with a help of MagnusB the menu structure is now reorganized. Hopefully it's more logical this time.
Also there might be some broken links because of this operation, please report them to us unless they are listed in the broken links

- Playing and Internal levels pages didn't get ready to publishing
- Main page is a new page displaying some basic information for first-time visitors (the picture is random, try to reload the page), if you are logged in (or cookie is set) and you type paprika.moposite.com to browser you'll arrive to News page instead
- News page has a new layout
- Comments (some basic BBcodes are supported, be careful)
- KOM poll there (maybe it could achieve reputation back)
- Random tips
- Priorities (High, Medium, Low)
- Filters (Base and Temporary), I will write a guide to use them

- New section
- Log in by using your Kuski gallery account
- Change password
- Save / delete cookie (Remember me)
- External / internal / mopolauta links (guide coming)
- How to open pictures from thumbnails to real size (I prefer pop-ups but can't set them default because many people are blocking pop-ups and justly)
- Change themes (obviously not many themes available at the moment)
- Change News Base filters
We have nice systems for KOM, Banning, Adding news, Moderating comments and changing privilities. I find admin sections pretty important that moderators won't get annoyed of using them and stop doing their vital jobs.
Hopefully I didn't forget anything important.

Banning at 2:43 EET by Abula
A few words about banning on Moposite since the first bans were served yesterday. The shame list isn't public now, but we might build something to show the current and old bans. Maybe it's not a good idea though because some people might find it interesting to compete on.
It's very easy to ban for admins, just a few clicks. On Mopolauta it's a bit harder (we might combine these two systems) but not too problematic.
The first ban is one week. The second ban will be two weeks, third one 3 weeks and so on. So the more bans you have gotten the longer you will be in penalty. Of course we can give people more than just one ban at once, for example if a kuski gets three bans for his first time it means six weeks (1 + 2 + 3). Is the logic clear?
How about the rules then? What can you do and what not? We are not going to write any specific rules now so use your common sense. And English.
