    Exclamation The state of BT 2/20/15

    Howdy folks :)

    Although I haven't posted in awhile rest assured that I am checking on BT daily (usually between classes ).

    Once again I'm in college and I am taking the following classes: advanced programming (self paced mon-fri), advanced word processing (mon and wed), advanced keyboarding (mon and wed right after adv word), algebra 2 (tues and thurs), and business law (thurs immediately after algebra 2 ). Unless they cancel more classes that I need (they cancelled two this semester due to low enrollment) I only have one more semester after this one and will get my A.S. in Business Administration with a concentration in computer studies (stupidly long title ). For those who are wondering my G.P.A. is 3.93 (I got one B which I'm contesting) as of last semester.

    The reason no work has been done on BT is because the vBulletin morons are dragging their feet with the latest version of the software for the 4.2.x line. I've been wanting to upgrade the software for awhile (we're on a 4.1.x line), but they keep putting off the official release. By upgrading the software I can integrate some of the features easier that are currently missing. It will also allow me (well the host) to upgrade the server software to plug some security holes and to improve future functionality :)

    So that's basically where we stand right now. There's a bunch of stuff waiting to get done, but that's on hold until vB releases 4.2.3 and there is no word as to when that might be.
    Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
    Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.
