Update:

I created a Team Ladder and joined it for 10 credits with my Team. It now shows in the Credits Transactions my Team paying 10 credits to join ladder. Attached image for viewing. I think the only bug is with the single player joining a player ladder.

Update 2:

So I had a challenge on the Team Ladder and settled it all out. Now on the Credit Transaction page it shows some names in the Description area that look to be forum users, but they have nothing to do with the teams that are listed. They are not members of neither team. This may be another bug and I have attached image.
Yeah I'll fix this in v5.2.0 as well

1. Allowed Declines Per Week: The number of challenges a participant may decline/ignore in a 7 day period without being penalized.

2. Challenge Point/Rung Restriction: The number of Rungs, or Points, that a participant must be within to challenge another participant.

3. Randomly Generated Maps: This would allow for a challenge to be made that would utilize 1, 2, or 3 maps for the challenge. Highly sought after by shooting games that have map specific wars. Could be script controlled with a text file that could be edited by admin to include the maps.

4. Accept Timeframe Hours: The number of hours allowed to accept a challenge - failure to respond inside this timeframe will result in the system processing it as an 'Ignore'.

5. Staff and Prizes Tabs: In addition to each tab already associated with a ladder such as Rankings, Recent Matches, Upcoming Matches, etc can there be Prizes and Staff tabs added. Prizes could be a customizable blank page that would allow HTML and could be created by administrator. Staff could display certain staff members that are associated with that particular ladder to answer questions and be the go to person by participants.

6. Winning Streak/Losing Streak Icons: Have in the rankings little icons that represent a winning and/or losing streak. It could be hoverable which would show the streak count.

7. Team Captains Tab: Have a separate tab for Team Captains.

8. Team Member Avatar: Allow for user avatar to display next to name in Team Members tab.

9. Members From: Have a Members From section in the About Team page. This could have a profile field created where a member could have a small icon flag for country which would populate in the Members From section. This could show 5 small flag icons that are used the most by team members.

10. Battle Light: This could be called anything but it would be an icon that would indicate to anyone looking to challenge if other teams are accepting at the time. This may help to avoid low activity as challenges will only be made against those that are accepting challenges. Could be similar to the online/offline icon! It should be either displayed on Teams Page, or in the Rankings which is probably where most will look first.
8. Turn off vB options -> Team Settings -> Simple Members List -> No {SAVE}

9. If it's already a user profile field, edit the template to show it.

10. Look at live match finder - shows player/teams interest in looking for a match within next 1 hour

Suggestion:

1. Can there be the ability to allow admin to lock a Team and not allow members to join? Example: We have structured time conditioned tournaments that last 6 weeks. We would like to lock Team Rosters midway or before playoffs so that no new members may participate. Right now there is no way for an admin to remove members from Teams unless they actually add them. If you were to add an option for admin to delete a member locking rosters would not be needed as I would simply delete newly added names beyond the roster lock time frame. However; to be able to lock a teams roster would be best as an admin ability specific for tournaments that last weeks at a time, and need to prevent members prior to playoffs, or other time frames.

2. Delete Free Agents: Allow admin the ability to delete a Free Agent that is beyond a certain time. This prevents participants from listing themselves as Free Agents and then never come back and do anything. The way it is now hundreds if not thousands of users could list themselves as free agents and if they don't get invites or do anything they just continue to build in the Free Agent area of the script. Let us clean our house from time to time!!!

3. Avatar Team Member: I know you answered me for my previous Avatar on Team Member tab but I like the simple Team Members list and would like Avatars for that as well as the other style. Could this be implemented?

Nice work on 5.2.1. Mostly all issues I had are resolved.

hi there,

Purchased Premium last night and have been testing it since. Recently bought 5 credits via paypal. Transaction was successful however the system does not acknowledge the transaction. My account still saying 0 credits and there are no paypal transactions in the table.

Am I skipping a step?

Your paypal IPN listener probably won't be working.

Log into paypal.com

My Account -> Profile -> My Selling Preferences

Instant payment notifications : click 'update'

Enable IPNs
- Notification URL: http://www.yoursite.com/forums/tll_paypal_ipn.php
- Message delivery : Enabled

Then try test transaction again.

of course! Thanks for that. (if only paypal would allow multiple IPN's to be configured!

Another things, I can't seem to work out how to rebuild category cache. Can you point me in the right direction please.

Thanks again.
