Future of the Forum...

Postby BigWorm » Tue Oct 09, 2007 4:18 pm

Hello All!!!!

I have a few things to update you on as far as the forum goes…

1. I have updated several things on the forum that should make things faster and more secure. But for now that means we will be using this bright ass template for a while. If you see any text colors that need to be changed to make them easier to see please post and let me know and I will edit them.

2. At some point we will merge with the new lexandterry.com website.
It won’t be right away but it will happen at some point as they will have a hell of a workload getting the new site up and running and adding new stuff to it.

3. For now I am thinking of reworking the forum (maybe switching to a different bulletin board solution) phpbb3 is getting closer to launch and I like the direction it is heading so I have been considering using it. The phpbb2 plus we use now really has more than we need.

So post your questions and/or ideas and we will see what we can do I would like to not use a portal page and strip it down to a more barebones forum since the new L&T site will be doing a lot of what I have always done here.

Its hard to read VIP members' names. As for the template you're using, well I'll just keep my sunglasses handy! :lol:


EDIT: NVM, you beat me to it! :D

We will have to join the paying part to get on the forum??

What is phpbb....is that a new reality show??

Sounds cool, just keep us up-to-date. Good work BW.

Can I go on record and say I hate the new color scheme?

I miss my black background and orange. :(

Yeah some of you had this theme before.

I will try and get the other templates updated but that will take some time.

No you had this one as your default before.

I am not 100% sure either way on that one but that is one reason we are keeping it here for now.

Check first post for a link to a beta forum I have setup. Feel free to register and mess around to see what you think.

The one think I do like about this template is that you can easily tell which topics you have visited already.

I am going to kick back and let the man do his biz... when he's done, he's done.
You have done a great job with the site in the past and since I am not that savy at making or running a website I believe that you have the creativity that will only make this site that much better!
BW, thanks for asking for our opinions rather than just laying it down and saying that it the wway it is going to be.
You have been doing an awesome job and prolly don't get thanked enough for letting us all use your forum.

Thanks BigWorm!
