There is a rating now. There was a category already, called Aurora.

The category wasn't selectable though, even if it did appear in the menu
Edit: just tested, none of the 3 categories there can be selected - the placeholder "select a category" remains highlighted no matter where and how many times I click something

I don't get the mouseover dropdown for the Knowledge base,  do get one for fanfics though
The boggosity of the universe tends towards maximum.

Quote from: knowledge base
You can modify any article.
You can delete any articles.

I don't think that's right.

I get the same result. The last post on the forum for the author is over a year old.

It seems the only way to allow creation of articles from others besides myself is to grant full admin rights on the KB.

Don't worry, its not like we will abuse that or anything (not that there's much to abuse at the moment anyway  ;))

I'm assuming you are referring to the author of the fanfic system...
Anyway, maybe try adding some subcategories to the list? What options are available?

Edit: Also, the comment system in the knowledge base doesn't seem to be working.

So I noticed you changed the permissions system on the knowledge base. I thought it would be a good idea to allow people to edit any article to give it a sort of wiki feel, and it might encourage more people to contribute as they are able to make small edits rather than having to upload a whole new article.
Well, the fanfic system is functional now, but comments still don't work in the knowledge base.

I changed the top level permissions to allow edits on any article. Let me know if that trickles down.

Is the knowledge base revertable?
If there isn't good protection from extreme bad edits, ie spam bots taking over, maybe you coukd give access to only those with over a certain number of posts?

". . .  We know nothing about them, their language, their history or what they look like.  But we can assume this.  They stand for everything we don't stand for.  Also they told me you guys look like dorks. "

I suppose I could create a "KB Contributor" member group and put the permissions there.

And I'm trying to think of the last time we actually had a spam bot here :)

Still don't have permissions to edit other articles, and comments still don't work (tested on two different computers...)

Now Erik, you never said anything about a new, nice looking News bar.
Give a man a fire and he's warm for a day, but set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life.
