    Tag o rama!

    Thread Starter: Owl

    Rules are easy...and borrowed from Waikato! #1 - Find the tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose. #2 - Take the tag to a new location (location...

    Helmet lifespan?

    Thread Starter: HEsch

    How long would you anticipate a helmet to last, sans crashes or impact? Do you replace on a time schedule (ie, every 5 years), or kms travelled (I don't know, but, maybe 25 or 50,000kms?). Or use some other form of measurement to determine a new one is needed?

    Bike Picture of the Week/Year

    I have just added a Picture of the Week/Year to the site.

    You can submit up to 3 pictures at anytime from one of your public albums. The submit link is on the view picture page. You also need to make albums viewable by Everyone or Registered Members in your Profile Privacy.

    You must have taken the picture yourself, or have permission from the image owner.
    All images must be motorcycle related in some way.


    View/remove your currently submitted pictures from the Community -> My Albums link.

    The POTW page shows all pictures submitted. From there you can pick your 1st (3 points), 2nd (2 points) and 3rd (1 point) favorite pictures. You can change your vote/s at anytime.

    If you delete your submitted picture from your album, your entry into the POTW/Y will be removed, even if you have won POTW.

    At the end of the week, the picture with the most points, then total votes, then submitted earliest, will be posted on the homepage as that weeks winner.

    At the end of the year, all the week winners can be voted for The Picture Of The Year.

    I am going to look into getting sponsorship for the POTW, so we can offer a prize to the winner of The Picture Of The Year.

    I've upgraded to vB 4.0.2 which has many bug fixes.

    Just some of the over 200 bug fixes:

    • [Groups] The "View All Groups" page needs significant improvements
    • [IE6] Various IE 6 Compatibility issues
    • [Lightbox] Date and name overlap in the Lightbox if the picture is relatively small
    • [Member Profile] Fixed Blog Tab and Custom Tab problem in Member Profile page.
    • [Search] "Find All Threads" by person
    • [Search Results] Miscellaneous Search Bug fixes.
    • [Settings] User link broken in Settings -> New Visitor Messages
    • [Smilies] Smilies not resizing in Smilie Box
    • [Updated UI] User Settings Pages
    • [Updated UI] Registration Screens
    • [Updated UI] Advanced Search Pages
    • [Updated UI] Moderation Pop-up Menu


    Currently the only style compatible with 4.0.2 is The Light Universe. I am still working on making The Dark Zone work with this new version.

    Any problems, post them here.

    Over 6 hours. That's gotta be the longest an upgrade has taken.

    This upgrade is a work in progress, as there is still much to do. I have modified the code for my Trader, Calendar, Event Attendance, Image Browser & Censor mods to work with the new software, but have still to do the following:

    Quote Notification
    avatar/profile pic censoring
    Profile Rep Stats
    Fallen Bikers page
    JavaChat Integration
    Force Style for Selected Users or Groups
    PM Reply to all
    Flame Warrior

    Mods awaiting an update
    Advanced Forum Statistics
    Social Group Calendars
    v3 Arcade
    vBTubePRO
    KB Spy
    Wiki single login


    The old Dark Zone style is not compatible with the new version. As soon as I find a dark style I like, I will add it to the site.

    All your images from Blogs, Social Groups, Albums and Posts are now in a central pool which is controlled via an enhanced attachment uploading window. You may need to enable it your settings.

    Image censoring has also changed. Now all iffy images need to be in a folder called "pr0n". You can have as many pr0n folders as you like anywhere in the folder tree. Again you may need to enable enhanced attachment uploading in your settings. So yes, you will now need to go through all your images and drag & drop all the naughty ones into a pr0n folder.

    Until I've sorted the Wiki single login, you will need to login to the Wiki seperatly using your KB login name. New Wiki accounts have also been disabled. If you have content to add to the Wiki and don't have a login, let me know.

    It will be several weeks before I've finished coding and sorting the new look.

    Anything not working as it should, let me know here.
