Welcome to Version 10 of Basenotes!
There are a few niggles to sort out but we're back!
Here are some links to get you started:
General FAQ for the forum software can be found here
Including changes from vbulletin, dealing with emails, alerts and wtf are badges.
Please post any bugs, suggestions or missing features in this dedicated forum here - if you post them in this thread, I may see them, but I also may miss them
For the time being, please post any missing fragrances from the...
We have a SOTD thread in both the MFD and FFD.
We also have a lot of threads which essentially duplicate the SOTD thread. These don't provide any discussion, and generally are just lists of people naming a fragrance.
I'm making a new policy.
Any thread which replicates SOTD, will just be locked. If you wore a fragrance last night, post it in your SOTD. If you are enjoying your fragrance today, explain it in your SOTD.
Any thread which turns into a list-fest will be locked. They are...
Keeping this site running costs money, and as such, usually we have a bunch of ads on here to help with costs. Sadly due to various issues, we've not had proper ads running since we relaunched. They will however be back very soon I'm afraid! ;)
If Basenotes is part of your every day life, and you feel you have benefited from it in some way, why not consider becoming a Basenotes Plus member?
Joining Basenotes Plus helps support the site, and gives you additional features such as...
Flags and gender signifiers are now available next to the messages* again.
To set your flag or gender, go to your Account Details page, and set your Country Flag to your location and Gender** to whichever represents you.
*desktop only for the minute, need to work out where best to put this on mobile
** There is a non-binary option, but I've no symbol for this at the moment. If any enbies want to chime in please do - may end up using the NB flag.
At some point today you may have received a glut of emails from basenotes.
As I previously mentioned, our email service wasn't working at launch and all the emails that sent out, basically failed.
I thought that they would be lost in the ether. But when our mail service kicked in, the site starting going through the queue of build up mail, which previously failed to send.
This means that some of you will have got mail that you'd previously switched off, as it was all queued up and...
I've had a play in the back-end and have made BN+ available to buy again, as some people have asked (well, @smockle and @Brian_Towers did anyway)
If you wish to do so you can go to this page here to purchase a membership
I'm going to revamp BN plus once things have settled down, so if you don't know what this is, then hold off a bit and I'm going to make a guide.
Now though, I'm going to make some dinner and rest. Will still be checking in on my...
We were offline briefly due to an error I made!
I wanted to make a duplicate of the website so I could work on new things and fixes without hacking around on the main site, so I started the process to duplicate the site without thinking properly. It needed to take this offline to duplicate it. Should have thought about that really, but oh well.
(Oh and I know I said I wasn't working this weekend, but I'm just getting things ready for next week ;) )
I'm going to use this thread to point out some of the new features of the site, both in the forums and directory.
If you are a regular user of the SOTD feature, you may have been frustrated when you wanted to log a fragrance you wore a few days ago. Well now you can!
Add your SOTD as normal, and then once entered you can backdate the fragrance to when you actually wore it!
No links as yet in the menu, but these are probably the links you are looking for:
I'm gonna have a lunch break, and check out what I still need to do on my return!
The add-on I purchased to display Market Place feedback, was supposed to be able to import the old stuff.
Turns out it can only do so from an older version of vBulletin 😭 so I'm going to have to code it myself
Can you all do me a favour and leave some pretend market place feedback for me?
To do so, hover over my name (or tap if you're on mobile) and you'll see something like this:
At the bottom, will be an option to `Add Feedback` (you can't see it on the pic above as you can't add...
