Importer Staff

Jan 4 2009, 11:44 PM

As most of us know, the importer has been a useful but untouched feature for quite some time. Thanks to Gunblaza we hope to change this, making it not only a useful feature, but a feature with a wide variety of more constantly updated high quality skins for all JFB users to use.

Thanks to Gunblaza for taking on the importer challenge, and also welcome to the JFB team (again).

Cordially,

Taylor W | JFB Staff.

    Yeah your topic did kinda start it lol.

    I will try to add 5 new skins every week or every two weeks depending on how lazy I am, if multiple JFB users find a skin that they think should be added, please PM me a link to the skin, if I like the quality of the skin and it does not look like death, I will ask permission from the creator to add it to our importer.

    Also if you have problems with a skin on there just let me know. I can fix it.

    Thanks for adding me to the team

    More like stolen codes.

    I don't think Jcink needs to be a VB-look-a-like.

    Nor does the staff need to be hassled by Jelsoft.

    Happy to have you aboard again, thanks for taking on the tedious task of filling the importer.

    no problem. Saves time for you guys.

  18. Jcink Says:

    Honestly though are you sure you can do this? Being the JFB drunk and all :0 You're not going to put up any drunken 1999 geocities style skins up, are you?

    (by the way, I can think of a few people to put into that group who really do seem drunk sometimes)

  19. beermoney Says:

    I just wanna let you know....just because I am over the drinking age and my username is "beermoney" & my avatar says "Why Lie - Its for Beer - Help the Beerless"......doesn't mean I am a drunk Just thought I would throw that out.

  20. iLLoNyX Says:

    Phew! for a second thought he was talking about me! Haha

    Good luck Gunblaza (im sure your going to need it with requists coming in)

    (by the way, I can think of a few people to put into that group who really do seem drunk sometimes)

    I will put some 1990 skins on there for April fools day or just when I'm in a funny mood or super drunk.

    I can handle it easy.

  24. iLLoNyX Says:

    No more Macros can be added? Cant Jcink do something about that?

    Gonna suck having these new sharp skins in, but NO original macros to go with them. If you cant do nothing, will you supply them here?

  25. Gunblaza Says:

    I may do that.

  26. iLLoNyX Says:

    There are several skins already in mporter that look like vomit, just remove those ones and make room for the new.

    QUOTE (iLLoNyX @ January 05, 2009 09:16 pm) There are several skins already in mporter that look like vomit, just remove those ones and make room for the new.

    Which ones?

  28. iLLoNyX Says:

    Valentice

    Re-Designed

    Lithosphere

    Maroonvile(yak)

    Fixated

    Cold Sanctuary

    Camo blue

    Aero Base

    All these are fugly as sin, and when was the last time you actually visited someones board and they were using them?

    Sure a few people may, which I doubt big time, but when they see these crap ones out, and the new ones in, they will be damn happy.

    shower time, be back soon.

  29. Jcink Says:

    There's no reason to remove any to "make room" - there's plenty of room on the server for skins. Room for thousands even. Getting permission is the hardest part.

    Leave them because all of a lot of those have been requested in the past and they have been used.

  30. Gunblaza Says:

    Valentice (Will hide until valentines comes)

    Re-Designed (Will keep)

    Lithosphere (Will remove)

    Maroonvile (That's my first skin! But I removed it)

    Fixated (Will keep)

    Cold Sanctuary (No one uses, will remove)

    Camo blue (Will keep, many people use it)

    Aero Base (Classic, must stay)

  31. iLLoNyX Says:

    I won't argue, I am just going to dis-agree with you. but it is your service.

    I'll keep my two cents to myself.

  32. Jcink Says:

    I respect your opinion, however, I didn't want him pulling them all. You're right about the fact that they aren't the the best skins in the world, but everyone has different tastes. And when there's no reason to really remove any since there's room...

    And Gunblaza's list is actually okay with me now that I see it, but the rest should stay.

  33. levey Says:

    Just wondering here.

    Let's say Lithosphere is the default skin at a members forum, but Lithosphere gets removed from the importer. What happens? Will a new default skin get picked by the forum software at random? Or.. will the skin continue to work even though it is not in the importer anymore? What if Lithosphere was the only skin being used on a particular forum and was removed from the importer? Just wondering is all.

    Ps. Not sure why the hate toward Lithosphere skin. I think it's a nice clean skin.

    Lithosphere stays on the member's forum and continues to work even if the skin is removed from the importer. The two databases are not connected; it merely makes an exact copy of what we throw into the importer onto the user's forum database when they press install.

    Excellent. Thanks, bud.

    Yeah, I plan to keep those and add on. But I am limited on the Macros, but not all skins use macros, so I will just set it up for one macro set for a bunch of skins.

  37. Jcink Says:

    What do you mean you're limited for macros? Macro sets aren't uncapped on the importer board? They should be. You should have unlimited amounts of every skin piece that can be added to the forum

  38. Gunblaza Says:

    It said I could only have 20 macro sets when I went to create a new one.

  39. iLLoNyX Says:

    Gunny if you can't add macros in the end, send me the preview of every nice skin you add that comes with the images.

    I have the day off tomorrow. I will post every image for the skins. So if they want them, they can come here and grab them, sound good? I'd like to help out by doing so.

    I will just post download links. Easier that way.

    But you can be my little skin hunter, find skins and let me know.

  41. Lloyd Reed Says:

    or JC could remove the limit for that importer board...

  42. Jcink Says:

    Removed. I thought it was already, but I guess it wasn't. Is there anything else capped? If you find something capped off, tell me, I can just remove it. I did so for RE so it's a matter of a few quick edits.

  43. Lloyd Reed Says:

    Did you remove all the capps, or just the macros?

  44. Jcink Says:

    I had a look at all the source files and that board seems to be uncapped for everything else regarding skins. It was already. I probably just missed the one macros section when I did the edits.

  45. Gunblaza Says:

    Everything seems fine now, I will let you know if I run into anything else.

  46. Jcink Says:

    Great.

    I'll likely also lift the limited skin amount from 20 to 50 for everybody as well sometime if this gets really big.

  47. iBaLLiN Says:

    In that case, I think a Light and Dark category would be appropriate. Nice to see this actually kick off again.

  48. Leon Says:

    Nice. =] and congratulations.

    it does sound like it would be great if the importer was setup with Categories of skins much like the Indexs of Skins at certain Boards

    its not that easy though.

  54. iBaLLiN Says:

    Take a shortcut. Make the main page one with two links. One to light skins, one to dark. then on the importer i guess have an option to upload skins into 2 different categories. that's probably what you were thinking and I probably sound stupid right now, but it's w/e lol

    Making the two categories is easy, importing them into the separate categories is not.

    jcink would have to create it.

    It should not be too difficult to create, but I'll wait until the need arises.
