GTX0 plugins panel; ability to ban yourself from the site for a little while (take a break)

  • I added a "Plugins" panel to the User CP. I'm going to be using it to store a bunch of features that clutter things but are sometimes useful or useful for some people from now on. Probably will use it to condense ON/OFF types of site settings as well.

    When you enter that panel, click all the plugins you want to activate (it will turn them blue) and then click submit.

    Ban yourself from the site

  • Activate the "Take a break" plugin.

  • In your User CP, you will now see this screen:



    Add a duration and a duration type, click the checkbox to confirm, and you will be banned for that amount of time.

    So if you enter "5" and "days" you will be banned for 5 days.

    Note that if you use this tool to ban yourself you will legitimately be banned for that period of time!

    Misc fixes

  • Duplicate ban bug is fixed so bans that have expired should no longer prevent you from getting new bans (I think this is the issue I killed mufasa was having)

  • Global bans work on the user CP and the home part of the site now too, not just the forum index / new post / post view. (no nevermind this was the actual issue he was having)

    As strange of an issue it is to have, at least we won't have to deal with those requests and the drama that ensues from them any longer.

    This seems like a fairly good idea.

    at least we won't have to deal with those requests and the drama that ensues from them any longer.

    I'm not sure why people wanted to make drama out of it when they could simply ignore posts about it though. It always seemed to be the people making a big deal out of it that turned it into an actual problem, not the ones asking for a ban.

    Will it ban my ip or just my name?

    long live the king

    Start with a short ban first. You may change your mind later and then you'll just be stuck that way the entire time

    This will be sure to increase GT traffic.

    Bravo, Xhin.
