Ok, after my post about Forum, take two, soon enough I got pissed off and completely removed the forum, including database. There are two reasons I acted the way I did, first one is that there was not enough of traffic and I had to keep coming back to see if anything is new and moderate it. Second reason is that I actually dedicated one (hidden) part of the forum to the university it club, so … I didn’t like that.
So I pretty much snapped and removed everything, havoc :)
But after I see (from your comments) that there’s still need for the same, forum is back up, with new database so you’ll have to everybody will have to register agian. Also let me note that this reason is up because Reece (Rolyin) agreed to help out and he’ll be moderating it, thanks! :)
In case he decides to quit his position, I’ll be forced to give database username and password to someone for safe keeping :D
Ok, without really any reason I “closed” the forum for the first time, and now I’m “opening” it for the second time. Actually to be completely honest I closed it for the first time because there wasn’t much of a talk in there. In the meantime, a port of the forum is being used by AUBIH IT Club members, part o the forum you’re not aware unless you’re in the club :)
Once you also gave your opinion that FC does have a forum, even though poll wasn’t there long enough. Besides this poll I really don’t know if the forum is needed, because not really a lot of discussion is going on in the comments or anything, but … suit yourselves :)
Nevertheless, forum is up again, and open for discussion for everyone and no one really. If you have any questions regarding anything, please do ask. I promise I won’t close it this time, no matter if it’s visited or not and … such :)
You wanted you, you got it :)
After I really let the users/readers/visitors that is you decide if you want forum or not, after posting a poll, you voted 64% yes.
To be honest with you, I wanted forum too, I’m actually lacking places I can have any sort of “intellectual” dicussion/talk. Or any other dicussion in global. This poll has been posted here for almost a month, since I saw you’ll (we’ll) most prolly end up having a forum I started working on it.
This is not my first or second, but one of in many forum implentations, and I’m so happy with the results that I think it’s one of the best ones so far. I really put a lot of “love” into it. And again led by “simplicy is divine” this is what I came up with it. Based on SMF it’s most prolly one of the safest and fastest forums out there. I editted … a lot, for the looks I also used PixelSlot‘s blackedr theme, which I also editted to my needs.
In the end I ended up with such a great product, that I won’t even have to “push” it to trough various “betas” and such. Also, this forum works fully on your phone through regular GPRS.
There, now all I can wish for is to gather nice community and make something out of it. Enjoy, as as I enjoyed making it ;)
Here’s a quick update just so you think I’m not doing anything.
A week ago I got my Sony Ericsson W960i it’s a complete beast so I’m still trying to tame it :) I’ll post a video of it and it’s capabilites and features in shortest period. Second hosting has been upgraded, so lots of space, and from now on emails you get here, will be 1gb.
Besides that all, I’m working on putting up the forum, because as I see it, you wanted forum so you’ll get it :)
There, little something, so you know what’s/something’s happening ;)
