I was thinking about this last night, I thought it would be a nice idea if for every front page news article there was a forum thread attached to it. The most recent front page news article for example, I would have liked to discuss but I felt a bit silly if I created a forum thread on it myself. Just a thought. I think it'll create a bit more activity. smiley

Yea, I've thought of this many a times myself. and figured it would save me the trouble of making a link at the bottom of every post. And then trying to judge which posts deserve one. A whole new forum for front page posts, or perhaps just include them into the general banter? Also include an auto link if there is a thread attached at the bottom of each post and show the number of 'comments' or posts about it. It wouldn't have to be a retroactive feature, more like the ability for the admin to check (connect post) and then perhaps make some existing post the comments post too. Plenty of opportunity here. Glad you made a point about it. smiley

A separate forum for news article threads sounds good! I'm getting excited! smiley

I have to say I 'm very impressed with all the changes that have been made to the snarkpit. It fully loads on my Palm TX PDA without a single error. That's saying a lot... not to mention all the other changes. Congrats!!! smiley

Every now and then when I post a comment with a or a / I come back later and they've been removed from my post.

Also I think that 100 snarkmarks for 7 days and 200 for 30 days, may be a bit of a large gap from 30min. Mabye if 50-75 snarkmarks for 1 day was added it wouldn't feel like such a big jump. Just my opinion though.

The backslash thing was from a massive bug in the early testing for this version of the site. They would be visible everywhere from text links to entire posts anywhere someone decided to use any kind of punctuation.

The end result was being able to fix it in some places, but not all. So, the only way to make sure we'd never see the bloody things again, was to get rid of them outright, and that meant basically disabling them, -as far as I understand it. so, sorry we can't fix that. smiley

Also, the 100 $SM for 7 days was a voted issue. Not too long ago, did we have this issue pop-up about edit times. Before there were no extensions beyond the 30 minutes. Many of the member voting on it, obviously had over 100 $SM, but this was seen as a fair amount.

Every 2 posts gets you 1 $SM, but every map and download gets you 10 outright, and gets multiplied with each rating you receive. So, the system rewards you the most when adding content like these to the database. Articles I think are worth 25 points.

...Every 2 posts gets you 1 $SM...


Oh, I didn't know that. I thought you only got snarkmarks if you answered a post correctly.

Also, I don't know if this is a bug or not, but when you are drafting (check the "Draft Mode" box in article edit) a article it gives you 10 snarkmarks. Is there a system set up so that people can't abuse this and get bunches of snarkmarks? Like a limit to how many drafted articles someone can have at one time or something? Otherwise...

ah, let me correct myself...

10 posts= 1
1 correctly answered post = 2
accepted dead link reports = 2
articles, maps, and downloads auto = 10
articles when rated = rating * 25 + 10
downloads when rated = rating * 25 + 10
Maps when rated = rating * 50 + 10

A note about the rating multiplyer: A rating of 1-5 is calculated as 10%-100%

So for example, a map with a rating of 4 gets an 80% * 50 (= 40 + 10)

So it gets 40 points plus the auto 10 points for uploading it.

The issue with the draft mode will just have to remain under-wraps I suppose. We won't be able to fix that for a while.

I downloaded a couple of Opposing Force maps and played them on LAN with my brother. Came back to rate them and comment, but seems like the comments section links to a completely separate topic. For example, Leperous' map Smallone seems to be linked to Riven's appearance on Podcast 17, and OP4 Tau is also linked to a General Banter discussion. It could be that I'm clicking the wrong thing, but this might be a section of the Pit that needs a brush up.

If you could post some links to a few of the specific issues, I might be able to manually fix them, and point me in where else I should look.

Thanks for pointing it out! smiley

No problems smiley

I'm not sure if they're broken links or if it's something I'm doing, but I'll post the links anyway.

http://www.snarkpit.net/index.php?s=maps&map=1
http://www.snarkpit.net/index.php?s=maps&map=3

I had a quick look-see and a lot of them seem to be connected to unrelated topics.

http://www.snarkpit.net/index.php?s=maps&map=9
http://www.snarkpit.net/index.php?s=maps&map=10

Coincidentally(or not), all of these broken links seem to be Leperous' maps.

Snarkpit is awesome. I appreciate the work that goes into a site that isn't just running on any software or forum scrip available for download. Some forums available are nice... like vbulletin but not needed in most cases.

One thing I would like to see is an option to add maps for Adrenaline Gamer 2. I have made several maps for this HL2 mod but never uploaded or created a page because there is no selection for it.

Half-Life, Half-Life 2, and Q3 engine mapping

We might need to consider scrapping the "Recently Found" thread in favor of a new one. Since it got out of sync it takes way to long to load now.

All in favor?

If three more people unconditionally agree, I'll be along for it. Otherwise, it's nothing that noticeable to me.

Yeah I have been meaning to post on that too.. Seems like the site is loading very slowly. Lots of drag on the site RIVEN.. may want to look into it bud.

For me and a friend of mine the site takes extremely long to load as well, not really talking about that topic but sometimes it doesn't matter where you want to go, everything loads slowly. When you re-visit the site a little later (an hour or so) it is fast again as usual.
