Account Activation Instruction

 

This was added today to reflect new instruction on how to activate hosting without admin or mod approval. Since the change in our credit system we no longer need to approve anything. It's all up to each member to gain enough myCENTs and activate it on their own.

 

Spam and Junk

 

This simple multi-moderating tool will attach "spam" and "junk" at the end of the title, move to appropriate section, make it invisible and close the topic.

I need to understand something. Does that mean that now the mods can directly approve hosting ? In the multi-moderation box now I can click "approve" ?Yordan

*whistle* ;)

The approve/unapprove macro is old news - it's obsolete now that there's a new credits system ;) But moderators weren't supposed to use the "approve" option anyway, because it just posts a reply, without actually creating a hosting account. The "deny" one, on the other hand, was regularly used :P

BuffaloHelp

What do you think about moderators "approving" the new hosting requests?Basically, no one really needs to submit a request--it's an automated procedure, nothing to set and nothing to approve.So the only thing that a new member would require is a detailed instruction on how to activate. vujsa's application would not be used in the future. (A huge thanks to vujsa for past years. your application was one of crucial parts in making Xisto one of the successful free web hosting providers on the net) The link should be modified to point directly to OpaQue announcement about how to create a new web hosting.Until we have it sorted out, I believe yes you can go ahead and use the Account Activation Instruction to reply to submitted requests.And I just added Spam and Junk because I was too lazy to do multiple tasks ;)


yordan

What do you think about moderators "approving" the new hosting requests?

OK, why not, I can do that.I noticed that when I do this, the [updated] appears in the request form post, is this normal ? Is it necessary ?

BuffaloHelp

Yes, I made it so that it attaches [updated] at the end of the title.Is it necessary? No. But I thought it gives a visual cue that the member's topic has been replied by a moderator. Should I remove it?


yordan

Should I remove it?

No, it's OK, no need to remove it. I just wanted to know if this was the "normal" behavior.
