No OT forum and now this.


- BTW Ravenshield has an OT forum as does Splinter Cell and Ghost Recon, but for some reason FB does not. It doesn't make any sense.

Nonsense, and it's about time they disabled javascript on the forums. Utter nonsense in the first place. Stop whining.

OK maybe that other post was a bit too much, but it does seem they're trying to drive us away slowly.

And BTW 'utter nonsense' is usually the fun stuff.

I think they are just trying to fix the problems from software limitation....

General market trends would show a slow year for most companies, I would gather this would be classified as a non-budgeted expense or 'wish' upgrade to change software and all involved license/hardware costs. Just a guess but I would gather it's to get some more road from this current system before new costs are incurred.

And fun there shall be. In my opinion that's not all dependend on the ability to include scripts in posts. The point is that there are people that are going to abuse that ability no matter how many people won't. And besides that, I think that most stylesheet alterations using javascript looked horrific anyways. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I agree. I am gonna miss my scripts but Javascript from what I have read "is" a security risk.

Yep i agree - i don't think we really need scripts and that anyway -yeah some people have artistic talent and manage to make things look good, alot don't. IIRC people using scripts to alter their posts is pretty recent( in this forum anyway) and i could see a future with ridiculous amounts of multicoloured posts assaulting our eyeballs before long.
what should be important is what people post not what colour there post is. - if you weigh up the benefits of scripts versus the potential risks/smooth running of forum (Javascript can be pretty nasty in the right hands) i think if this desicion comes to this forum its probably right.

p.s. as you may have guessed - i could never get them to work anyway /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Java script is definitely a security risk. No doubt about it.

Broken scripts are also a nuisance, what happens to scripts when you quote someones post without stripping out the script is sometimes fatal to the whole thread.

This is good news for all. Faster download less bandwidth etc.
Those of you who seriously thing this is a step in a big plan to get rid of us all seek counselling.
Next get rid of the rankings as it only encourages individuals to hang around and post irrelevant nonsense.

The pilots lounge was this place you could go to find some humor. Sure, there were some flame wars, but generally it was a good natured place to hang out for a laugh or two.

Then that whole war started in the middle east and a whole bunch of trolls and flag wavers showed up and really ruined the place. I thought it was necessary to close it at the time, but now I kinda miss it. UBI has decided not to re-open a new one so now we talk about vulching and pings.

No it's not. Scripts can be a real PITA to deal with, and they slow down the forum. Not to mention that much of the time the damn things are just ugly and/or useless.

I'm actually pretty suprised that scripts and HTML have ever been allowed, it's a good thing this forum has never been attacked, it would have been a mess, I've seen what a good forum invasion can do with that stuff, and it ends with the whole forum crashing.

At the same time I'm cranky that I can't use mine anymore, especially the one that changes my Nick to RatFink, I've tried just signing up under that nick but someone else allready has it.
