Site Update: Captcha Options, New Subforum, and Spoiler Tag
14/04/2011 à 19:33
Our developers work hard, but usually it's all about the database or the blog--they're always finding new ways to speed up datamining or make the database's user experience smoother. The forums sometimes are a quiet third or fourth to the behemoths of the site. But that's not the case today. Thanks to some work behind the scenes and feedback from our community, we have a handful of new updates to make the Wowhead community's forums a better place!
Firstly, as you probably know, there's this thing called CAPTCHA and it keeps spam bots out. It also makes posting less than fun--it can be hard to read and sometimes refreshing is necessary. We've gotten several requests to have options for users or to at least enable the old system for users, so we have. You can use reCAPTCHA, the system the site currently users, or you can try out the Wowhead version. To change this, simply go to 'Settings' and select it from there under the 'CAPTCHA' header.
Secondly, there's a new forum in these parts:
the Computer Hardware forum
. A lot of threads crop up at inopportune moments in the wrong place. Sometimes they're of the "Can my PC run X" variety. We also frequently get discounts from partners to pass on to our Wowhead community. We decided to kill two birds with one stone by introducing a new forum here at Wowhead for these types of posts. Rest assured, if you have questions about PC specs or building this is where you should go. A free cookie to the first person to make an Off-Topic thread there (no, not really, these cookies are mine).
Lastly (and definitely least) we have a new mark up tag! This one is for hiding text, particularly spoilers.
Snape kills Dumb--I mean, it's a spoiler tag.
To use this tag for your own, just type: \
<hidden text goes here!>
