The settings were reset, so anything you changed previously you need to set again. Mchat was always at the top unless you took it off (I'm guessing most of us did). Other things you may have set, like the number of posts displayed, also reset.

Profile->Board Preferences will change most things back for you, for mChat, go to that tab and click "No" for "display on index page"

Re: The new TAT2.0. And how it works. PLANNED UPDATE

#257

Post by ponchi101 »

Dear all.
phpBB has released an update to 3.3.5. I will update that on WEDNESDAY, as we have predictions running and I do not want to interrupt somebody's picks.
Will post you after it has been changed. The update is simply for bug fixes, so you will not see anything much different.

Ok, just to be sure. You are not being able to LOG OUT? As opposed to LOGGING YOU OUT when you don't want to?

None of my devices are logging me out when I don't want them to....ie the thing I was complaining for months about seems to no longer be a problem. :) IE I am staying logged in when I close browser, which is what I want.

Ok. It was happening for other phpBB forums around the web, so maybe they fixed that bug. I will do the update tomorrow Wednesday, so that should make it more stable.

Dear All.
I was able to run the update.
However, as you know, at times I am still lost with this issue. So, if you find something different or that is not working, PLEASE COME TO THIS TOPIC and post whatever deficiencies you are seeing. I hope there are none.
Keep me posted, thanks for your patience. :tatrocks:

We have more 'bots' watching us now - not just google and bing anymore.
At least 2 more 'bots' with bizarre names I've never seen before have been added.

The BOTS, in our case, help us. They keep track that we are a community of 250 people, of which about 20 interact daily. That makes us very unappealing for sales and such. We have 49 bots/spiders, of which only 6 are activated (Google, Bing, the new Semrush, Baidu and Ahref. The Yahoo bot was deactivated, but we need those in order to be findable on the web. Otherwise, we will not be listed in their search engines).
I know that, collectively, we are a hermit site (unappealing), of late 20's to old users (ditto), talking about an obscure subject (ditto) that almost never click on links that lead to other sites (because we delete them). So the bots basically tell the world: skip these people. They buy NOTHING, and are interested in very little.

It can be turned ON/OFF but on a global aspect. It is not set up individually in the UCP.

I, too, would prefer that this disappears, as I see no positive purpose to 'keep score' of the number of 'thanks', and feel it can only lead to some sort of unhealthy competition - even if it's a silent one.
If it's possible to separate the two, I'd like to retain the 'thank' function as it is, and the notifications when someone thanks us - that's all fine - but lose the statistical count under everyone's name, as I feel it serves no positive purpose.
