Hey all,

I don't think it is really that fair to the people who want to sign in as invisible that Btown Plus members can see if they are here or not... I am assuming that is the only reason I can see italicized names of people who are signed in... May want to have that looked at...

Personally, I don't think it's fair that anyone can sign in invisibly in the first place.
Makes me nervous.

That said, it's one of those things that will be fixed, but just hasn't been, yet. I don't do coding or anything like that, so I don't know what's up with it.

Another one that annoys the heck out of me, is the search function. I know the need to curb searching for different things too fast. I get that. However, I search for "giant" and on page one I see nothing that peaks my interest, so I click on the "2" in the little box to go to page 2. This happens...
Sorry but you cannot use search at this time. Please try again in a few minutes.
Really??? I am just continuing my search, not starting a new one... Ideas???

That's not a BTown thing. That's a PHPBB thing.
It's a function meant to hinder people (spammers) skimming the site for email addresses, etc.
You shouldn't have to wait "a few minutes." Generally, 30 seconds or so between searches should be fine.

So patience is the key... I understand the spammers part, I just thought it wouldn't affect page turning.

Zen...

Could we get the ref score back on the Check Refs page?

It seems to have gone missing with the new format.

I have a question and it is probably stupid but...How do I do a search for Privateer Press Paint when it is p3 paint. "p3" is too short and "paint" is too common. Or I guess I don't know how I would search for paint in general unless it is a specific color and I don't think btowners would normally list all the colors. Thanks for any tips.

I'd suggest running the search through google. You can specify for the search engine to stick to a single website through the "site:" tag. So, try this search string: "privateer press p3 paint site:bartertown.com/trading"

Sure! It's how I get around the PP Forum's lack of a boolean search. Use Google to search for the thread you're looking for.

Google knows everything! *dons tinfoil hat*

Hi! Thanks for all the hard work. Is there anyway to get the feedback score link, ie - (X), on the user's profile page? I cannot count the number of times I click on a user's name from my invox to check the profile, and then follow that up with a copy of the username, click on Check References and then fire away to investigate.

I'd rather see it show up in PM's, first... though the profile would be nice, too.

I've added the ITL number to the inbox PM list as well as the message view ehn you open a PM. You should now be able to bypass the user's profile altogether when you want to check their refs from a PM.

I'll work on getting ITL listings on profiles sometime this week.
