phpBB3 - Our new board.

Post by Ailise » Mon Mar 08, 2010 9:07 am

As you all have noticed over the weekend, we have changed boards from punBB to phpBB.
The decision to make such move was because punBB have stopped developing and we were getting more and more problems with it. We believe phpBB3 is a good replacement and we will work hard on trying to make it feel like our old place.

With phpBB3 also opens a new world with add-ons/modification that might make this board even more awesome!
Don't misunderstand us now, we don't want some ultra high-tech board and add all those massive add-ons to it.
Our goal is still to have our cute, cosy and simple board.

Since you our members spend equally much time as us on the board, you have all the right to suggest something you would like to see changed on our new board.
If you also have any suggestion about some awesome modification for phpBB that you know of, or have seen some place else, don't hesitate to suggest it.

We are all open to new ideas, don't be afraid, we don't bite! (well... maybe a little :P )

Regarding the 'hot topic' icons, there aren't any red rabites in the games, are there? Why not make them a more natural color, like pink or green or blue (or even black)?

Oh, I thought there were red rabites, maybe I dreamt about it. Should it be black rabites instead? I though red was easier to distinct normal topics to the hot topics

Ah, with my last post, two things for the new board came to me:

- Make the smiley icons insert only the smiley, without spaces on both sides of it. That's how the old board did it and I always liked that (I noticed because nearly all forums insert the unnecessary spaces, and Seikens was the only board that didn't).

- A
Spoiler: show
tag. Not only can it be used when talking about movie endings and game events and such, but it can also be very useful to keep large images or rants from taking up a lot of space on the page. If you need the name of the phpBB mod that does this, I can ask on the other board where we use it.

avatar is now set on left side. I agree, the right side isnt better than left side for the avatar.

Will fix the online picture later
