Facebook links mostly expire by definition, so that's not the best idea. Your server is probably not forever either. If you compress your images, you are welcome to just drag and drop them into the editor. That's also new in XF2, it's easier to add pictures. We've also increased the thumbnail size from 100px to 250px because... well, 2019.Also imgur is not reliable for me... but that's maybe because i do not have a account? i just upload pics to my server or facebook..
Here's one reason to upgrade: XF2 came out over a year ago and because of that, XF1.5 is becoming EOL in a few months and losing security updates by end of year. We should not be running an abandoned engine. So it's not really a choice whether or when to upgrade, we do this to keep this thing running at all.I'm not aware of any obvious reasons, I'd really like to read something about it as the main posts contains no reasons or anything related to that.
Quite correct. It's gone.So you're saying that the Home button has just no reason to be there? Why to have it in first place?
Such a landing page does not exist. We're not a server list and we don't have many events. We have tutorials in specific boards - that's where all the information is or should be. No reason to replicate that on a new "home" page. There is another attempt at explaining "OTS" to new people (that is docs.otland.net) but it's in very early stages. If it gets anywhere (not many people wanted to help expand it) then it may be featured in the menu.Meanwhile having a decent Home landing page with all these functionalities that you think I haven't explored yet might be a nice feature for everyone to see what's going on instead of having only half-dead support threads with stupid and uninteresting questions no one really feels like answering.
I wouldn't recommend Facebook at all for image hosting. Mainly because of the big "Facebook Exodus" which has caused a lot of people to install privacy addons and outright block the facebook domains. I've even heard of entire colleges/universities blocking it because of privacy reasons.i just upload pics to my server or facebook..
I know what you mean. I'm still working on possibly bringing those back.This is the exact reason I also think why the ”Best Answer” implementation was so good — people were grinding for more ”Best Answers”. Same concept with ”Likes”.
I was thinking about that as well - something similar. Look at this: XF 2.1 - Reactions (https://xenforo.com/community/threads/reactions-%F0%9F%91%8D%F0%9F%98%8D%F0%9F%A4%A3%F0%9F%98%B2%F0%9F%99%81%F0%9F%98%A1.154898/)Now imagine adding something like ”Great Code” for people who share codes etc. Maybe it’s a dumb suggestion but perhaps we could see some more good changes to OTLand now in time with the forum layout change.
