<- how could you forget to upload that?

<- gonna upload that one too...

edit: here are some more...


*yawns*
...but not that much of life on this new board eh?
Come on... it lacks very little that phpBB has. No, eh?
It lacks private messagery (-ing?)
OOhhh... I see... it lacks images directly put in posts! hah! gotta do that, both remote images and also easy linking from our local c-disk. What do you say?

ahem...
Klatuu Varada Nin.. Nah... Nuh... nevermind...

I think most members are still posting at the other forum, mainly because this one is still thought of as a work in progress. Maybe in another week or so, once all little details are worked out, more posts will be transfered over to here. Another big reason is that many replies are being added to long threads that already exist. Posting replies here would require people to check in both places, as some would certainly still post at the other forum, splitting the conversations and making them less comprehensible. I think that if you do change to make this the main forum anytime soon, you should probably give several days notice first, to give people a good idea of what's going on, and to let them get a start at continuing posts over here. You could, for instance, place a notice as a news flash at the top of the page that reads something like "Forums moving to PostLine on May 15".

I think the only major features that people will still want are the inline images and private messaging. One other feature that I think would be interesting would be the ability to insert icons into posts, just as they would appear in the C-Disk. Along with the emoticon list button, there could be another that loads a browsable C-Disk window, starting at the position showing that person's files. From here, they could click the icon, which would insert the equivalent code into their post, which would in turn appear in their finished post as an iconic link to download the file.
i hate it here!

Well one of the reasion I am not posting is that the existing php
fourm is well better. This is nifty and all but I am after all more used to useing php boards.


Also the fan art fourm would be better in a php board. Because of the fact it has code blocks (and quotes).
Oh also because there is so much classic stuff there allready. I'll repost krebal hear and maybe that will be a good test of the board.


Maybe I should upload a avatar.

[q:Ginja_ninja]Also the fan art fourm would be better in a php board. Because of the fact it has code blocks (and quotes).[]

This forum does have quotes though. What do you think the little 'Q' in the corner of each post is for? The quote markup is a little different, but this format is actually quicker and easier to type out. Code brackets could be added though, since normal quotes don't do anything to preserve correct spacing and formating.

One thing that is really needed here though is the ability to add links to files and sites within messages. This is a pretty important requirement, and should be added before posting is entirely transferred over to this forum. That way, members will be able to provide a link to the original post in the other forum that is being transferred from.

One other important thing would be the tracking of post counts, listing such things as total posts in the forum, number of posts in each individual forum, and postcounts for each member. It would also be cool to track replies and new thread creation counts separately. That way, we could see how many replies a person made, in addition to how many new topics a person started.

And by the way, technically this forum is written in PHP as well, making it a 'php forum'. This forum is not based on phpBB though, and is instead written from scratch as a whole new type of forum. I generally dislike phpBB forums a bit anyway, as they tend to be slow, and they all feel a bit too much alike. As an added bonus, this forum doesn't require SQL database access, so anyone can use something like this on their site, so long as their host server has php installed.

Speaking of which, fun with nidified quotes below...

Yes, code blocks will be added very soon, as well as some paragraph control such as center and right-alignment directives.

Write something that begins with http:// or with www. (including the dot). And it will be a link.

Ok, I may add that, although I know I'll regret doing it

That's a pretty good defense
It's all true.

It is interesting to know that phpBB is well better because "you are more used to use it".

Since today, this also has code blocks.

This is a good thing.

Hmm, I dunno.. I kinda like the old forum better... maby I'm simply more used to it, but I think this one is, how to say, a lot less space.

Know what I mean?

Not to worry, I'll probably like this one as soon as I get used to it, just give us some time.

I'll post my next thread here.

aaand...
;) <--- I don't like this guy!

Yes, hmm, thinking, thinking thinking....

Could we have an option in our preferences to have the reply-window and such at the bottom of the screen, in the same frame as the forum itself? This feels rather cramped... And I'm browsing in 1024x768.
