Allow posting changelogs (in Changelog)

AdminNightStrike May 2 2009 7:55 PM EDT

As my first changelog post, I've given myself (and all the admins) the ability to post changelogs. That should make things a little easier.

Cool. :)

AdminShade May 2 2009 7:58 PM EDT

Saves us the trouble of making a thread in General and then move it :)

I had thought all admins could make changelogs.

Nice change.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] May 2 2009 8:53 PM EDT

Admins could make a thread and then move it to Changelog forums, which is just as good :)

Actually I now know anyone can make a Changelog, but only admins have a link. Regular members don't have the link, so there should be a change to restrict access to Changelog for members.

Ok?? but I think I lost my ability to make a new thread of any kind :(
Maybe I am just too tired to figure out it tonight :(

QBRanger May 2 2009 9:41 PM EDT

Looks like I too have trouble creating new threads, in at least General and FS.

TheCakeIsTheTruth May 2 2009 9:46 PM EDT

Just the link has been removed

That's for General

That's for FS/WTB.. if it doesn't work, it's because I'm drinking.

the Start New Thread button is gone from all for me

Demigod May 2 2009 11:47 PM EDT

Ditto. Collateral damage.

Didn't we already have the ability to make threads in Changelog? It's been a while since I've had the urge to make one, but I think it always did work as advertised?

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 3 2009 7:12 AM EDT

Thank goodness NS is back. ;)

AdminNightStrike May 3 2009 7:14 AM EDT

The link hasn't been there in a while, bart. I put it back for admins only.

If non-admins wish to exploit the lack of security in this area and post changelogs, they do so at their own peril.

Just give anybody messing with it a forum/chat ban for a period. Anybody posting probably won't want to lose the privilege.

AdminNightStrike May 3 2009 7:42 AM EDT

Ok, so I blocked new thread creation in changelog if you aren't an admin.

TheCakeIsTheTruth May 3 2009 12:12 PM EDT

I can confirm this, we can no longer create Changelogs.
