• Change profile information?

    From Ash@VERT to DOVE-Net.Synchronet_Discussion on Saturday, September 09, 2023 01:35:41
    Oh hi!

    Just wondering, is there a way to change sex (I really dislike how it
    adds '(x)' in node list because I didn't initially care to disclose it)?

    Also, location? I figured I'd be able to change that in my profile if I
    was travelling or moving around. But, I don't see how to change that either.

    That's up to the sysop of the particular BBS If they want to make those user properties configurable or not. It's not a built-in/default feature of Synchronet, if that's what you're asking.

    Ah, so if I wanted to change any of those already set details otherwise
    on a standard Synchronet setup, I'd need to ask the sysop - Got it!

    instead of newsgroup)

    There's no easy way for a user to change their own location. In fact, I think it's impossible as Digital Man indicated.

    The good news, I've almost finished a javascript version of the default setttings, which will allow the sysop to easily add and remove configuration options. I have also designed it to use a template so you can change the look and feel to match your BBS, with a little effort, without having to dip in the code, unless you want to.

    Adding the location would be trivial, but will probably require you to squish something around and put some items on 2 lines, otherwise you're going to get some scrolling.

    I'll post something when it's ready for prime time.

    Aye!

    I think it would be challenging and mostly pointless to try to run a BBS myself on a sail boat. :)

    Synchronet offering NNTP lets me download messages when I do have an
    Internet connection so I can later read/write responses. Later, when I
    am able to connect to the Internet again. I can send queued
    messages/download new ones.

    Modern Internet applications really suck for this, good luck trying to
    get this sort of flexibility on Discord, Reddit etc.

    No BBS here, I'm just a user on Vertrauen currently.

    I'd love to see this stuff reach upstream.

    it's easy for the sysop to make a script in a few mins.
    it just needs to ask for a string and then set it.

    there's .js user pref scripts and i made a baja one that's out there.

    maybe you guys can synergize.

    Wait, it does? Where?

    Yeah, stuff like QWK packets and NNTP are really handy sometimes, wish more stuff had offline reading. It could, of course, be for ad/tracking reasons :(
