New Software!

The software has been updated! To see a detailed breakdown of what I did, and when I did it, check out this topic.

There are a ton of fixes and changes... here is a list of the highlights:
  • Latest version of SMF installed. This offers stability fixes, security patches, and some optimization.
  • Mobile version! On top of Tapatalk, TQC now has a native mobile version of the website. When a mobile phone is detected, it will switch to the cell phone view.
  • Customization! There are a variety of themes to choose from now. To switch between them, simply toggle the switch on the bottom right of your screen. This will quickly switch between the different themes, and save you selection to your profile. If thats not  enough customization for you, you can now modify the display properties of the shoutbox. Simply hover over your Profile buttom in the menu, and select "Look and Feel." Which leads me to...
  • New menu system! I rearranged the buttons on the menu to be neater organized, and easier to navigate. There are now more options for each menu option.
  • Optimization. I cleaned the database thoroughly, got rid of unneeded data, and optimized many scripts to run faster with less queries.
  • Profile badges. Elite members, staff members, etc. all now have badges under their names instead of typical stars. This makes them stick out even more than before.
  • New reputation system! Now users can give detailed reputation to members, and are able to see a display of the power that a user has. Every post you make adds to your rep. A new topic is 2 reputation points, a new post is 1 reputation point. Every 5 points you get a reputation power, and every 10 points you get a green bar.

What's next?
I still have a few changes to finish up on here. What will you see? The footer will be tweaked to include links to our social networking. Social networks will be tightly integrated, with new threads being posts daily to facebook and twitter. I also plan to integrate the ability to login with OpenID, which includes logging in with Facebook and Twitter.

If there are any problems, please contact any of the administrators, and we will assist you the best as possible.  I:I

One last thing: if you preferred the looks of the old theme, you can switch your style to TQC Legacy. This will switch you back to the old style.

AND: I am currently integrating the random quad banner to each theme, as that was an AWESOME part of TQC!

This issue should be resolved. All users are now set to have the shoutbox display on the top of every page. To change this default setting, go to Look and Feel in Profile.

A new shoutbox has been installed. The old shoutbox had some problems with the conversion, this new version is fast and powerful. I will work on making it use the settings in your profile.
