Hey all,

Flockmod 11.12 is out!

The primary update in this release is we have added the ability for room owners to customize what the different moderator levels are able to do in a room.

This means rooms can now have a level that lets some trusted users just undo, or mute other users.

It allows room owners the ability to design their own hierarchy instead of having to rely solely on what we had setup.

This was spurred by what is currently our most popular idea, http://ideas.flockmod.com/?ia=78041

 

Its a little hard to explain what all it can do, its one of those things you’r gonna just have to see for yourself!

Hello,

I am sure you have all recently noticed a large amount of lag in all rooms.

The datacenter that we lease our servers from is having issues with their core router.

The os that the router runs is no longer able to keep up with the amount of traffic the datacenter generates as it has grown.

The datacenter is co-coordinating a replacement router scheduled for 00:00 AM PST 6/4 or roughly 30 hours from this post.

We will still stay up even with the lag, and we will keep you updated if anything changes.

Hey guys,

I would like to announce that we have added the image deletion feature to our gallery today.

 

You will now be able to delete any images you have uploaded if you are logged in, or any images that came from your ip while you were logged out.

 

Sorry about the delay on this one,

Its been our most requested feature!

Enjoy!

(EDIT) :

I have also just locked down tags with the same sort of logic.

 

You can no longer edit other users tags.

Small update to our gallery.

We now have a captcha added for non logged in users to do things like add comments.

This is due to a large amount of spam we were receiving.

We had temporarily blocked comments from users who werent logged in as a stop gap measure, but this was not very clearly communicated.

 

Hopefully things work as expected for you guys again,

FDT

Flockmod 11.10 has just been released.

 

Here is a quick list of changes, we may update this post shortly with an easier to read version.

Changes in this update (v11.10):

  • Added mirror mode for rooms.

Hey, no updates to the client this time.

Our gallery however has been updated to let you vote on images and Flockmod usernames now show up properly on comments.

You should now be able to see the new ‘popular’ navigation section on the main gallery page to show upvoted images.

It has daily, monthly, and yearly sections currently.

Enjoy!
